Food intolerances can be a distressing experience for many people.
Symptoms of food intolerance can range from mild discomfort to severe digestive issues, skin problems, headaches, and more. Noticing patterns and documenting details of symptoms can be very helpful to diagnose any underlying health concerns. At times, food intolerances cannot be traced to any medical conditions. There are integrative approaches that can help alleviate symptoms and improve overall health. Here are some approaches to aid relief:
Properties of certain foods can irritate the gastrointestinal system. Elimination diets, anti-inflammatory diets and diets supplements can help the gut to heal by eliminating foods that may cause irritation and by introducing foods and nutrients that promote healing.
2. Stress Management
Stress can also contribute to food intolerances, as it can disrupt digestion and trigger inflammation. Incorporating stress-reducing practices like meditation, yoga, deep breathing and Logosynthesis can help improve overall health and reduce symptoms of food intolerances.
3. Individualized Treatment
Each individual is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. Seeking the guidance of qualified healthcare professional, such as a dietitian, counsellor and other health professionals, can help identify individual triggers and develop a personalized treatment plan. Logosynthesis offers an innovative, integrative treatment modality that can also support an individual treatment plan by identifying and resolving energetic triggers to stressful reactions.
In conclusion, food intolerances can be challenging to manage, but integrative approaches like special diets, stress management, and individualized treatment can help alleviate symptoms and improve overall health. By taking a holistic approach to health, individuals can find relief from their food intolerances and live a happier, healthier life.
An example of using Logosynthesis as an integrative approach:
Megan struggles with food intolerances and those around her work hard to accommodate her needs, replacing eggs, milk, cheese, bread (flour), fruit and other common foods with alternatives. With a dietetics and Logosynthesis background, I was curious about her symptoms. While prepping dinner one day, I asked her about her food experiences. She was quick to describe that for the past two years, eggs were electrifying. I had previously worked with Megan regarding stress and anxiety and I knew that she experienced vivid movies related to intense emotions, so I asked her if she was interested in exploring ‘electrifying eggs’ using Logosynthesis.
“I’m really interested!”
I guided her using the Basic Procedure and in one cycle (about 20 minutes), ‘hot, hollow, shocking marbles’ turned to dust. The charge was gone.
With the eggs neutralized, I asked her about her experience with milk. Different symptoms occurred when she had milk, cheese, butter. These symptoms also occurred when she ate fruit. The symptoms, with her since she was five, were described in terms of a pushing & pulling, stabbing pain. She recognized that it was tied to emotional distress at that age but it was with her so long that she couldn’t do anything other than put it in a box to try to ignore it.
As she connected with the distress, she described colours: red – ‘inflamed’ and blue – ‘numbness’. This was followed by a vivid experience of a thin layer of acid covering her organs and a big mixer that churned everything up. I offered a cycle of Logosynthesis using ‘the thin layer of acid and the mixer’. At the end of processing, she described a very vivid movie which transitioned from acid coming in big waves and then building metal walls around the organs, to ending with the acid being transformed harmless water. She was safe and protected. The distress around dairy and fruit, that she experienced since she was five, had dissolved.
In an hour, the distress around eggs, milk and fruit had neutralized. I don’t expect that she will now magically love these foods but if the distress is resolved, perhaps she can more fully enjoy social events with her friends, such as pizza parties, bbq’s and outings for ice cream. She will keep me posted on what shifts but the movies she dissolved in previous work have not returned.
In this process, we didn’t go looking for the trigger nor did we dig into past experiences and emotions that may have initiated the distress. We stayed focused on the Logosynthesis Basic Procedure, noticing what was bothering her, guiding her to connect with the distress and identify the sensory perceptions that arose. We allowed lots of time for the sentences to process. We proceeded to the next sentence when she indicated that she was ready. This process allowed her to end our hour together with curiosity and a smile.
Give it a try:
Whether self-coaching or guiding clients, gaining comfort and confidence in using the Basic Procedure offers an elegant approach the entire process, from identifying the issue to bringing closure to session. In the beginning, most people prefer to be guided by a certified Practitioner in Logosynthesis to guide them to identify and resolve the trigger. With experience and practice, people learn to use this technique for issues that trigger stress in everyday life.
