What is a Food Intolerance?

What is food intolerance? natpath.co.uk

Many people think food intolerances and food allergies are the same, in fact they are very different. Here we will explain why:

Food Allergies only affect 2% of the population and they have a severe and an immediate ‘reaction’ to the body. Think about a peanut allergy that causes swelling of the face, lips, throat and tongue.

Food intolerance, also known as food hypersensitivity or non-allergic food hypersensitivity, refers to difficulty in digesting certain foods. Food Intolerance “reactions” can take up to 72 hours before you even notice symptoms, which makes them difficult to identify. They  effect 45% of the population and are often the cause of huge digestive flare ups, as well as mood swings, skin issues and even chronic fatigue!
