Top 3 Overlooked Allergy/ Food Intolerance Signs in Children (and adults)

1. Skin speaks volumes: Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body? Skin shows how your body is feeling. Even if you have a little one that can't speak, their skin can speak for them. "Sensitive" skin, eczema, rashes around the mouth, knees, elbows, armpits, bags under the eyes. These are all key signs of an inflammatory response in you or your child's body.

2. Poop: Are they constipated or having loose stools? Poops are a clear sign of how properly your child (or you) are digesting your food. Stools should be firm and medium in size.

3. Ear infections: Usually a sign of a dairy allergy although they can also be indicative of a gluten intolerance. If your child is complaining of frequent earaches an elimination diet might be in order. In today's world with such a heightened awareness of allergies this has become simpler to do!

Other key signs of a food intolerance or allergy are: brain fog, crankiness, sleep problems, inattention, acne and mood swings.
