Food and food-chemical sensitivities are a highly complicated group of non-allergic and non-celiac inflammatory reactions. They're one of the most important contributors to inflammation causing a wide range of chronic inflammation. They are also one of my most challenging and under-addressed areas of conventional medicine.
Commonalities of Diet-Induced Inflammation
All diet-induced inflammatory reactions involve mediator release (cytokines, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc.) from various white blood cells (neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils, lymphocytes).
Mediator Release is the single most important event leading to all the food-generated symptoms that you may experience.
