Food reactions cause more health problems than you might think. Over 70% of the US population with a potential to cause, or further complicate existing health problems. Symptoms can range from fatigue to IBS to eczema, among many others. Most people are completely unaware of the burdens they tolerate due to these sensitivities. Frequently, food sensitivities are the missing link in spotting causes of illness often overlooked.
