What is latent food intolerance?
Latent food intolerance – is a widespread and undesirable phenomenon, which is accompanied by a negative reaction of the body to the usual food.
The reason for this may be:
- immunological disorders
- digestive tract diseases such as disorders of the intestinal flora or poor condition of the walls of the digestive system
Latent food intolerance can be accompanied by various symptoms. Those that we can notice are :
- over- or underweight
- a feeling of discomfort and pain in the abdomen
- lack of energy
- drowsiness etc.
But less noticeable manifestations such as inflammatory processes in various organs and tissues, immune and metabolic disorders are more dangerous.
The basis of hidden food intolerance is
Transcytosis is a free transition of large organic molecules and even larger particles, in undigested form through intact walls of the digestive tract into the bloodstream.
In consequence of this, there is an immediate reaction of the immune system to the intrusion of ``foreign`` material into the internal environment of the body. The body reacts similarly to bacteria, viruses and any other undesirable microorganisms. The immune system is forced every time to try to free the body from such an invasion.
Each new contact with an unwanted ``alien`` material is accompanied by the release of antibodies into the bloodstream. The production of such useless antibodies, and the their subsequent elimination depletes the immune system and excretory organs. The organism bears huge losses of energy, materials and precious oxygen dissolved in the blood, which leads to chronic fatigue, drowsiness and apathy.
