There are a great many different types of food sensitivities. They may range from a slight, almost imperceptible discomfort, all the way to the kind of reaction that will have you writhing on the floor. A full blown allergy to any food is known medically as a toxic clinical reaction, and it involves the immune system. For some, their food sensitivities are more-or-less known. They know what they should avoid, and they get along pretty well with just avoiding what doesn't agree with them.

For others though, the sensitivities seem to keep mutating and changing so that they never quite know what the result of the next meal will be. This can be very difficult to live with. Some days health and energy levels might be great, and others they will be rock bottom all because of offending food items. It can be impossible to plan life because on bad days, sufferers may be totally incapacitated.

Keeping a Food Diary

To overcome food sensitivities it will be necessary to keep a food diary. You will need to note down every single thing you eat and in what quantities. You will then also need to keep a note of reactions, feelings, moods and how the day went. Sometimes sufferers themselves don't even realize to what extent their sensitivity towards certain foods might be running their lives. You can find websites that will help you plan a food diary and point out what to include.

What kind of strategy you decide to use to overcome your food sensitivities may hinge on simply eliminating certain foods from your diet. Or you could decide to tackle the problem at its source. Many times, the candida fungus is at the root of environmental and food sensitivities. Taking steps to eliminate candidiasis can mean that food sensitivities all but disappear. Successful anti-candida strategies can and have changed people's lives.
