“ Most people go through life eating inflammatory foods that create many chronic diseases and health conditions, including low mood and energy. Food intolerances can be very destructive to the body. They cause more subtle health challenges that make someone feel uncomfortable without outward immune reaction. These reactions can take up to 3 days to develop therefore making it very difficult for you to identify the offending foods and connecting the symptoms. That is why we recommend testing!” Yvonne O’ Shaughnessy
