You know something’s WRONG…
And you feel downright AWFUL.
But whaddaya get from your doc?
MAYBE a shrug… and DEFINITELY a drug.
Fact is, he has NO CLUE how to solve the mystery that’s PLAGUING you.
But I do.
See, DOZENS of today’s most debilitating symptoms often boil down to 1 simple culprit.
To fix all of them… you’ve got to find what’s hiding in plain sight.
The culprit that’s hiding in plain sight
If you’re experiencing symptoms with no clear cause, it may be time for a little investigating.
I’m talking about…
- chronic pain, including joint pain and fibromyalgia
- inflammatory conditions
- digestive struggles, including bowel disorders
- cluster and migraine headaches
- respiratory conditions
- mood disorders, including anxiety and depression
- and more.
Here’s what might SHOCK your doc…
The suspect you’re looking for could be food allergies!
That’s right – food allergies in adults are FAR more common than your doc may think!
In fact, 26 million adult Americans have food allergies – and HALF of them developed the allergies AFTER childhood.
Believe it or not, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Tens of millions more also have food SENSITIVITIES, which are harder to detect. They NEVER show up on the standard skin prick test used for allergies.
In fact, I’ve seen tons of people with CLEAR symptoms from specific foods… but negative on those tests.
Sure, there are food allergy blood panels out there -- and while they’re much more reliable than skin testing, they’re not great.
In the past, I've gotten a 50-food panel for my own patients to see if it fit the situation. Sometimes it did, and sometimes… not so much.
That’s why docs give up and shrug… and then give you the drug.
But not me…
When medical tests fail, it’s time for some good old-fashioned detective work.
Get yourself a notebook – just like a reporter or detective carries. This notebook is your food diary.
TRACK what you eat… and also your problems. Over time, you’ll be able to MATCH what you ate to your symptoms.
Sometimes it’s easy and leaps right off the page…
Other times, it’s tough, especially if you eat foods with a lot of additives.
In that case, the best way to be REALLY sure is to pair your food diary with elimination and/or rotation diets.
As you avoid the problematic foods, you’ll see symptoms practically VANISH.
