Less Common Food Sensitivities: Soy, Corn, Nightshades etc.

Unexpected food toxins

There are food toxins in some categories of foods - apart from gluten grains and milk products. Ironically - some of these are offered as 'gluten-free alternatives' in health food shops. But beware - they can cause just as many diffcult symptoms as gluten, fructose or dairy.

So if you still have symptoms despite checking out the main four - look at any of these:

    • 'Alternative' grains like millet, quinoa, amaranth
    • Sorbitol and Polyols and alternative sweeteners like aspartame, saccharin
    • Food additives (artificial preservatives, flavour enhancers, colours etc.)
    • Latex foods: cross-reactions with banana, avocado, chestnut and others
    • Salicylates: found in some medications like aspirin and in tiny amounts in plants
    • So-called “Super Foods” like Chia, Goji berries and acai etc.


Adjusted your diet - but still have symptoms?

If you are already following a special diet (perhaps prescribed by a naturopath) - but you are still suffering symptoms, there are three possible explanations:

      • You are still accidentally eating what you are trying to avoid . . . or
      • You have guessed the wrong intolerance or are misdiagnosed . . . or
      • You have an additional food intolerance - as yet undiagnosed

In any of the above cases we can help you find answers ...
