Whatever your situation be, there will be others who are in a worse place. Appreciate the merits of your situation.

The symptoms they cause can be almost anything. The most common are digestive problems, headaches, migraines, joint pain and stiffness, arthritis, chronic fatigue, skin disorders, ADD/ADHD and more.

How do you find out if you have food sensitivities? You can do it on your own by following an elimination diet.

If you have health problems, consult your physician.
