When a food sensitivity has been identified and eliminated from the diet, the result can be the eradication of syndromes such as digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, ADD, aching joints, skin disorders, arthritis and perhaps more.
Alternative therapies such as acupuncture have also been proven to minimize the adverse reaction to sensitive foods. Alternative treatments are also useful for those who have non-food allergies which are triggered by the environment (hay fever, spring blossoming). By reducing the inflammatory response with acupuncture or other interventions, patients can breathe better and be itch-free.
