Food intolerances can either be due to chemicals within the food (natural or added) or leftovers from your food feeding the bacteria in your bowel. Your symptoms will give us a clue. The first step is to follow a diet that eliminates all possible problem foods to enable you to be symptom free. Then we can start “challenging” with suspect foods to determine which foods you can add back into your diet. It can be a tedious process but it could lead to being symptom free for the first time in years. A good investment.
