Skin reactions are some of the most complex issues to treat, as there are a number of factors that could be at play creating an unpleasant, itchy or painful rash anywhere over the body. Are you experiencing itchiness, redness or uneven skin eruptions? Do you suffer with acne? More often than not it’s associated with something happening inside your body rather than on the outside. What’s relieving to know is that it could quickly be dealt with through testing to find the culprit, and do away with skin conditions for life.
Your skin mimics your gut function, so when the immune system is compromised creating inflammation in the gut, often the skin is the first organ to respond. Intolerance to substances, chemicals and food sensitivities triggered by genetic conditions, bacterial, yeast or fungal infections, and stress, can then impact the immune response impacting your skin and often other respiratory organs such as the lungs causing symptoms of asthma or shortness of breath.
Stress, bacterial balance, hormones, autoimmune conditions and deficiencies all interplay with the food we eat creating the perfect storm that our body reacts to over time. Eating foods our system recognises as inflammatory, allows for food particles to slip into the blood stream, activating the immune system, beginning the process of a food sensitivity.
The symptoms we may experience in response to eating these intolerant foods can range from the obvious signs like bloating, headaches and indigestion, but these, and skin complaints including acne, psoriasis, eczema, hives, redness and blotchy skin are also sometimes attributed to genetic disorders that decrease essential nutrients and increase histamine, leading to high histamine reactions to the environment and to high histamine or sulphite foods. If identified correctly, these genetic disorders can be nutritionally balanced, reducing inflammation, histamine in the body, and the overall reaction to these substances. Desensitising food sensitivities that have been produced is the next step to ending the cycle and eradicating intolerance or allergy for life with the correct testing and pathology to identify exactly which foods are causing the distress.
Not all food intolerant tests are the same, you’ll often find they are a generic assessment looking for a singular antibody presence such as IgE or IgG, when there can in fact be multiple types of allergic responses that your body is producing. With only two laboratories in the world testing for a complete range of reactions, along with sensitivities to fungus, yeast and household allergens, choosing the appropriate test is paramount. Combining the right diet for you whilst also balancing hormones, and treating gut malabsorption ensures a more permanent result for desensitising current food sensitivities. By ending the cycle of producing more sensitivities, you can live free of skin complaints and health issues, with a robust social life without having to be fussy over your food choices when dining with friends any longer.
Your skin is the largest respiratory organ of the body with a strong role in detoxifying substances considered toxic, including that of chemicals or food sensitivities.
Suffering with any of these symptoms should not be simply accepted as part of life, but should be considered a clue to a health issue you may not know about, so consider investigating even the smallest of issues, it could change the path of your life forever.
