Why Do I Hurt All The Time?
I remember being a wee little thing and my mom touching my knee and asking, "Does it hurt there?"
“Uh huh.”
She touched my big toe “does it hurt here?”
“Uh huh.”
She touched my shoulder “does it hurt here?”
“Uh huh.”
Then she touched the tip of my nose, and my face brightened! It didn’t hurt there!

We can all agree that no kid should have to be in pain all the time. But can you agree that adults shouldn’t have to be in pain all the time too?

As I got in my 20’s I started a food elimination diet, and suddenly the pains went away! The knees. The bottoms of my feet. My neck. No. More. Pain.

Unbelievable that food could cause years of that, right? And what do you do when you feel bad? You look to comfort food! Mac & cheese (especially grandma’s), ice cream, cake, you name it. Let’s make you feel better with food! Sometimes it works exactly opposite, though. When you have food sensitivities.

Science-y Stuff
All diet induced inflammatory responses have something in common: they cause release of cytokines, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc, from white blood cells. This is the most important event leading to all negative effects from food sensitivities.

Inflammation can cause neurological (migraine, ADD, ASD, depression, insomnia, RLS), gastrointestinal (IBS, GERD, UC), urological (IC), gynecological (PCOS), musculoskeletal (fibromyalgia, CFS, inflammatory arthritis), and dermatological issues (psoriasis, dermatitis, urticaria). All of these issues, and more, can be primarily or secondarily caused by food sensitivities!

Daily pain is a sign of systemic inflammation. That can be caused by what you put in your mouth. If it’s time for you to find out what you might be sensitive to, hop on into my Facebook Group, or check out this free resource on how to do an elimination diet.

News About Me 
I have some interesting news of a personal nature! I found a functional doctor 10 minutes from my house and I saw her for the first time today. I'm on a journey to heal my gut, not just avoid foods I'm sensitive to. I'm super excited to have this going on, and I want to share it with you as it happens, and help as many people as I can! Stay tuned!

We will be chatting about the pain and inflammation issue on Friday, 6/25/21 at 2:00pm Eastern, here
Join us, and you can ask all about the details about my docs appointment!
