How Can Functional Health Consulting Help?
Instead of just removing the symptoms (bloating, gas, skin rashes, etc), functional health focuses on the CAUSE of these imbalances. For instance, if someone with a nut allergy eats nuts and their skin breaks out, functional health will provide a natural solution to not only the skin swelling but also the immune system response.
The overreaction to the proteins ingested can be combated by increasing immune efficiency through dietary and lifestyle changes.
If you’re seeking to eliminate adverse food reactions and boost your overall immune health, functional health WILL help you. By explaining things such as elimination diets, environmental stressors, and evolutionary changes in organic human health, functional health will aid in the restoration of your health while providing relief of your allergy symptoms as well as ensure they will not hinder your life going forward.
As previously mentioned, in order to ensure your body is protected against allergens, it is vital to strengthen the immune system. If you’re curious about which foods might be causing your reactions, eliminating one food at a time (for at least two weeks at a time) will help you properly identify what could be causing your discomfort.
