Is the food you are eating impacting your personal best?
Exposure to toxins through our diet, combined with stress levels from daily life can have a dramatically negative effect on the digestive system and cause the tissues of this system to weaken. This degeneration can lead to food sensitivities.
When we hear the term food sensitivities we commonly think of them presenting symptomatically as digestive concerns (eg. gas, bloating, diarrhea, heart burn), but this isn’t always the case.
Sensitivities to food can result in many different reactions in the body including:
- Joint pain
- Nasal/sinus congestion
- Reduced recovery time from injury
Being a runner and someone who depends on achieving a high level of physical activity from the body you can understand the detrimental effect any of these symptoms may have on overall physical performance.
