[1:26] With celebrations comes a lot of food! If you’re like Dr. Phil, you’re allergic, sensitive, or intolerant to some foods and you have to avoid!
[2:51] The primary difference between an allergy, a sensitivity, and an intolerance. Dr. Phil talks about some of his intolerances. For more information visit: CarsonNatural.com/BeatAllergies and the Carson Natural HealthFacebook page.
[7:42] Dr. Phil defines ‘sensitivity’: “A reaction to a substance which is actually an exaggeration of a normal side effect (produced by that substance).” He gives some examples, explains how they can manifest, and shares his own experience with sensitivity.
[10:25] Dr. Phil defines ‘intolerance’, explains how it occurs, his own experience with intolerance, the results and symptoms, and reasons why you may be intolerant.
[12:45] The causes of symptoms need to be correctly diagnosed so the management and treatment of the allergy, sensitivity, or the intolerance can be appropriately taken. If you don’t know which you have, you need to see a professional to be sure.
[13:12] Allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances should all really be taken seriously because they can cause some major problems. Treatments are available to reduce the severity of the response to something or eliminate the response all-together.
[13:48] The most important step is to just avoid exposure to the offending substance all-together.
[14:12] If you have a strong healthy immune system it can help prevent allergy symptoms and sensitivities. Dr. Phil recommends probiotics to keep your gut healthy which will greatly support the immune system.
[15:22] Our Feeling Good Superhero of the day is Dr. Frank King. He was teaching a technique he used in his practice at a conference called “Muscle Testing” or “Kinesiology” to test if someone has a sensitivity or intolerance to a substance. You take the substance and put it on your tongue. Dr. Frank tried this out on Dr. Phil by putting a piece of cheese on his tongue — and when he did, Dr. Phil lost all muscle strength in his arm! This could help you determine if you have a sensitivity as well. Thanks to Dr. Frank King for being our Feeling Good Superhero of the day!
