A food sensitivity is different from a food allergy. An allergy usually results in a relatively quick and apparent reaction to contact with a certain food. With a food sensitivity, the reaction is often delayed and cumulative, and resulting symptoms may manifest as skin rash, joint aches and pains, sinusitis, asthma, insomnia, headaches, and digestive disorders producing bloating, gas, and poor food absorption.
A person with food sensitivities may also develop leaky gut syndrome, a condition in which the lining of the gut (mucosal membrane) has increased permeability that leads to bacteria and toxins that are in the gut leaking into the bloodstream and causing inflammatory reactions throughout the body.
