The Symptoms We’re No Longer Putting Up With
Last Updated: 12th January 2023 · Written by Kate Young
The very least we should hope for from our body is to be able to live a normal lifestyle. To be able to do the things we want to without our body holding us back. When you’re putting foods into your body that are considered “healthy”, you expect that it repays you in kind by allowing you to go about your day-to-day life unencumbered by symptoms that hold you back from achieving your goals. Here at Lifelab, we know that, despite your best efforts, sometimes your body doesn’t pay out on the healthy foods you’re putting in. We also think we know why…
Intolerance and allergies are a real spanner in the works. Until you identify them, they can cause a range of symptoms that can prevent you from living a normal lifestyle. That’s why Lifelab offer allergy and intolerance testing to help you understand why your body isn’t doing its bit. Here we take a look at some of the symptoms you may be experiencing that an allergy and intolerance test could help get rid of.
Is there anything more frustrating than putting in the work in the gym & eating the “right” foods only to still get asked when it’s due? When you eat a food to which you’re intolerant, it causes irritation and inflammation within the gut. Your body doesn’t have the enzymes required to break down the food, so bacteria does the job instead. When bacteria break down food, it produces more gas than enzymes, and those gases remain in the stomach, giving you that bloated feeling. By taking an allergy and intolerance test with Lifelab, you can identify the foods causing your bloating.
Allergies can have a severely adverse effect on sleep. When you have an unidentified, untreated allergy, it can cause inflammation of the nasal passages. This means your body doesn’t get the oxygen it needs to fuel all the cells within your body. During sleep, this is especially detrimental as sleep is when your body regenerates and recuperates cells. If your body can’t do this when you’re asleep, it leaves you in a constant state of fatigue. This year, we’re not standing for this. We’re taking an allergy and intolerance test.
Another symptom of allergies and intolerance is persistent headaches. Headaches can be severely detrimental to your ability to lead a normal lifestyle. They can get in the way of your life at home and also have an impact on your ability to perform at work. By taking an allergy and intolerance test, you can identify the substances which are causing you headaches that stop you from being at your best.
