Dr. Matt French loves cheese. All types. The problem is that cheese doesn’t love him back. He has a food sensitivity to cheese and most dairy.
It’s not necessarily an allergy, like if someone who’s allergic to peanuts or shellfish eats some and goes into anaphylactic shock. But it’s your body reacting to one or more of the foods you’re eating regularly. Moreover, that food is causing inflammation, which is the culprit behind many diseases, illnesses, pain and ailments.
Watch Dr. Matt tell his story of his love/hate relationship with cheese – a food sensitivity…
Some foods to eliminate are:
Do you feel achy? Don’t chalk it up to “getting old”! It could be simply a something you’re eating that doesn’t agree with you.
Don’t get upset because you have to give up one of your favorite foods. For instance, there’s a lot of excellent gluten-free products available. If it’s dairy — cow’s milk products — try goat or sheep’s milk cheese and there are many new vegan cheese substitutes. Daiya makes a decent gluten-free and dairy-free pizza.
But first you have to figure out which foods are causing your pain. That’s where we can help.
Most food allergy/sensitivity tests check food antibodies, whereas the MRT 170 test measures inflammation. Antibodies do not always lead to an inflammatory immune response. When one’s immune systems perceives something as threatening, it will produce inflammation through what are called chemical mediators. these mediators include things like histamine, cytokines, prostaglandins and many others. The MRT tests each food to see if it causes a mediator release in the person’s blood. The panel tests 170 separate ingredients included some non-foods items such acetaminophen and Ibuprofen. Yes, in some people Ibuprofen can elicit a pro-inflammatory reaction!
