Food sensitivities and food allergies
Food sensitivities and allergies are common and can be tough to narrow down and diagnose. The symptoms and signs can vary from mild to severe. Some people experience itching, eczema, rashes, swollen eyes and painful joints. At the root is a digestive imbalance that prevents proper absorption and metabolism. One of my patients reacts with swelling and very itchy pink-red discoloration all around her eye area, while another responds with diarrhea alternating with days of painful constipation.
Chinese medicine is wonderful at healing the many manifestations of food sensitivities and allergies. Treating the underlying metabolic and digestive disfunction will resolve the issue. I use pulse diagnosis and examination to discern the cause and select appropriate herbal remedies to heal the gut and harmonize the digestion. This assists proper microbiome balance and corrects the digestive process, allowing the body to heal systemically.
I look forward to helping you and yours,
