Your Gut Microbiome and Food Allergies: The Connection You Never Knew

How does your gut microbiome affect food allergies?

Let’s talk about it.

Your gut microbiome helps you stay healthy. Through the neurological system, your gut microbiome communicates directly with your hypothalamus.

If your gut microbiome is out of balance, inflammation in the gut can cause sensitivity, especially to foods. 

The beneficial bacteria use fiber to make short-chain fatty acids and create a chemical called butyrate. Butyrate helps to protect the walls of the intestine against inflammation, and even colon cancer. 

Low-fiber diets are detrimental to beneficial bacteria.

Without adequate fiber intake, your gut microbiome cannot protect you. Eating fiber is key to keeping your microbiome healthy and producing the proper amount of butyrate. Too much simple sugars and carbohydrates instead of fiber increases the risk of imbalancing your gut microbiome and increasing inflammatory response.

A poor diet can lead to intestinal dysbiosis, meaning your microflora is out of balance. 

When your microflora becomes out of balance, you become more and more sensitive to food.

As food sensitivity increases you have an IgA reaction indicating mucosal inflammation. As you become increasingly sensitized to foods, you start producing immune globulin G (IgG) which indicates heightened sensitivity to the foods you’re consuming. And then immune globulin E (IgE) which is the true allergy marker, can cause systemic reactions like itching, rashes, runny nose, and inability to breathe or anaphylaxis.

New research has demonstrated that a special form of butyrate can help prevent and treat food allergies. 

It’s critical to keep your gut microbiome in balance.

I have found in my patients with food allergies, that when their hypothalamus becomes balanced they become less sensitive to food. They start with Sacred Seven® amino acids to help balance their hypothalamus, which decreases the inflammatory response. Then after a few months (the time it takes to retrain T-cells), we introduce Genesis Gold® as they’re no longer sensitive to the multiple whole plant ingredients. 

Healing of the gut microbiome continues with Genesis Gold® as it includes probiotics and prebiotics to naturally increase butyrate production and reduce inflammation and hyperimmune response.
