Usually misdiagnosed or treated by sufferers as mundane, nausea can seriously affect productivity, focus, mood, and other emotional behaviors when symptoms are ignored or unmanaged.
While nausea is an unpleasant feeling, it’s typically a sign that your body is working to protect you from potentially harmful ingested substances. Possible causes of nausea include but are not limited to:
Visit your GP to rule out any serious underlying causes for unexplained nausea.
If you never feel quite 100%, and experience seemingly unexplainable nausea symptoms, you might have a food intolerance.
When dealing with a food intolerance—when your body cannot properly digest and convert the foods you eat into the necessary nutrients that fuel your system due to an enzyme deficiency—the immune system will kick-in and start attacking the improperly digested proteins by means of inflammation.
During this inflammatory state, according to PubMed, “the immune defense is very active and needs a lot of energy, which may be lacking for other activities” causing a decline in functionality and general symptoms of nausea, exhaustion, and fever. This response can also yield behavioral symptoms of sickness like depression and irritability.
Eliminating and replacing problem foods from your diet may help fight against nausea or reduce symptoms. The quickest way to identify your exact food intolerances is by taking a blood test that measures IgG antibody levels against a variety of different food proteins.
This kind of testing helps to quickly identify which foods are responding negatively to your system and are much more efficient than food journaling or guess-and-check diets.
All that’s left to do after you get your results is to eliminate the foods you’re intolerant to. That’s it. No follow ups. No exercise regiments. Zero hassles.
