Read Transcript

There are many things that increase the risk of food allergy. Things like antibiotics which destroy your gut floor, things like stress, drugs that are used all of the time like acid blocking drugs or anti inflammatory drugs., they cause what we call leaky gut or change the gut floor inside your intestines, and that causes problems where the food leaks into your bloodstream and creates inflammation.

Those are the main causes plus poor diet, sugar, and too much processed foods, not enough fiber, not enough vegetables to create a healthy intestinal environment, because when that environment breaks down, that's when you get food allergies.
