“Immediately after eating I get very tired.” “My heart begins pounding shortly after I eat.” “I often feel nauseous after meals.”
This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their excruciating complaints caused by food intolerances.
What seem to be normal foods create nausea, cramps in the gastrointestinal tract, vomiting or diarrhoea. A distended stomach and bloating are frequent side effects. The burdened digestive tract can also cause heart palpitations, a drop in blood pressure or an irregular heartbeat.
At first these symptoms are caused only by a few foods. If left untreated, however, the number of foods increases – a path of suffering begins in which those affected can tolerate fewer and fewer foods.
