Most people think that eating food is a no-brainer - we eat food and we live. But it is not quite that simple. Every person’s body is unique and every person’s body reacts differently to certain foods. Some people experience gastrointestinal upset, mood disorders, skin issues, chronic pain, and many other conditions. This is because some foods cause inflammation in certain people. This inflammation leads to the degeneration of the body’s cells.
Inflammation occurs in some people because foods they eat contribute to, or cause, leaky gut. Leaky gut happens when large molecules get through the gut lining and into the blood stream prematurely. This causes the body to send “soldiers” in to fight these molecules and remove them. This process creates inflammation. Some professionals also believe that certain foods feed viruses that are harboured in the body, causing inflammation as the virus irritates the cells it inhabits as it grows and multiplies into more virus cells.
