The truth is SOOO many of us have food sensitivities that are wreaking havoc on our bodies – from weight gain to digestion problems to being cranky pants and short fused on the regular- and we have NO idea! On today’s episode we have brought in Digestion Guru & Nutritional Practitioner Heather Woodruff to help you understand what are food sensitivities, what are the top culprits and how you can track them down in 3 easy steps…we promise this will be life changing!  

In this episode, we cover: 

  • Heather’s personal journey to struggling with unknown food sensitivities and how she reclaimed her health  
  • What are food sensitivities vs food allergies? 
  • The top culprits:  what are the most common foods that may not be your friends 
  • What happens in the body when we experience food sensitivities and why it is so important to be able to recognize to manage weight, inflammation, digestion and more! 
  • Learning the language of symptoms:  The beauty of how your body is talking to you if you know how to listen and how easy it is to uncover them with the right approach 
  •  Elimination diets & how you can use as a tool for discovery 
  • Heather’s top resources to go to help you understand your body  

3 Key Points: 

  1. Food sensitivities can take 30 min to 3 days to show symptoms.  If you don’t know what or how to look for them they can be VERY hard to find. 
  2. A  4 week elimination diet is the best practice that Heather recommends to be able to track down the culprits. 
  3. Your body is always speaking to you through symptoms.  This is its way of telling you something is off so listen with curiosity, love and kindness while you find the solution.
