Food Intolerances

Food intolerances are not often discussed in the general medical community as a cause of symptoms or disease, but such intolerances cause a significant amount of health concerns in the general population.  Food intolerances are different from allergies; they can also involve the immune system, yet they are often mediated by physiological responses to foods and are therefore undetectable by common blood or skin scratch tests.  Because of this, food intolerances are often much more subtle and more difficult to determine than a frank allergy, yet can cause significant health consequences to many people. 

At Nourish, our naturopathic doctors conduct an individualized, holistic assessment to determine how food intolerances may be contributing to your health concerns and form research-driven plans that not only avoid food triggers, but also address the body's hyper-reactivity to certain foods so that you can (hopefully) one day eat as you please!
