Did you know that according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services approximately 65% of the human population has a reduced ability to digest a carbohydrate that is produced from dairy called lactose? As we become adults, we start to lose an enzyme called lactase. ⠀⠀
People with lactose intolerance notice digestive symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, gas, bloating and abdominal pain shortly after eating dairy products.
However, other chronic symptoms such as sinus congestion, skin conditions, overall inflammation, headaches, poor immune function, asthma and other respiratory conditions may be caused by dairy consumption.
Let me know if you are interested in learning about an Elimination diet to see if your symptoms improve. Be mindful with switching over to dairy free products because there may be preservatives and processed ingredients in them. ⠀⠀
Let’s work together to find the right nutritious foods for you!
