Food Intolerance Overview

Food sensitivities and intolerances are a result of the gastrointestinal system’s inability to process food properly. This is what differentiates food tolerance from allergies – allergies are associated with the immune system, not the digestive system. Food sensitivities can also be associated with chemical sensitivities as well.

The most common food intolerant conditions found in Ottawa are:

  • Wheat and Gluten Intolerance
  • Alcohol Intolerance
  • Lactose or Dairy Intolerance
  • Histamine Intolerance
  • Yeast Intolerance
