Why do you feel sick when you eat certain, or all, foods, It is your body’s immune system response to a food that does not agree with you. It’s a natural defense against harmful foreign substances, so your stomach reacts to specific foods that upset it. If your stomach hurts when you eat almost any food, then your stomach is not healthy and needs agut repair so that the environment is suitable to digest food.
Researchers demonstrate that this inflammatory response in the body can increase certain symptoms such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), bloating, tiredness, constipation, diarrhea, cramping, eczema, headaches and migraines. A food sensitivity test can tell you if certain foods are upsetting your system and if your gut needs to be cleaned up so it is in better shape to digest all foods.
