Dr. Wendy Wells treats each individual as unique. We all differ in how well we digest our food. Some simply do not have the enzymes to digest certain foods. Celiac’s Disease or Lactose intolerance is the classic example. It is a huge misnomer that these people are the only ones with food intolerances. Everyone has some degree of food intolerance. Food intolerance leads to improper digestion which leads to food particles that putrefy in the GI tract and cause toxicity and inflammation. When people stop eating these foods or food combinations, they feel better!
These partially digested materials are deemed foreign to the blood and an immune response ensues. They can also interfere with normal functioning of the body and they can lead to chronic disease.
Food intolerance can be determined by a simple blood test. This method of testing identifies foods which are not well digested or metabolized in a particular body. These foods are a source of maldigestion, intestinal toxemia, dysbiosis, and chronic irritation to body tissues. Dr. Wendy Wells is one of the only physicians that uses this method of treating food sensitivities in Scottsdale and food sensitivities in Phoenix.
Often patients report multiple symptoms such as headaches, constipation, diarrhea, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, aches and pains, weight issues, depression, insomnia, asthma, anxiety, ADHD, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, eczema, PMS.
The body may or may not “react” immediately to these foods when eaten. Reactions can vary from sneezing, coughing, mild itching, to less noticeable chronic reactions that can lead to a variety of health issues. Regardless, these partially digested materials weigh heavily on our immune system, leave toxic residue in our gastrointestinal tract that causes dis-ease in the body.
