What is a Food Intolerance or Sensitivy?
Food intolerances occur when the body cannot properly digest or break down certain foods, causing a digestive system response or a digestive upset. Sometimes, the food we enjoy, doesn't always enjoy us and can lead to an irritated digestive system.
There are many factors that contribute to food intolerances. In some cases you may lack the specific chemicals, or enzymes to break down and properly digest proteins found in certain foods. Also common intolerances are related to added ingredients that provide colour and enhance taste.
Food intolerances can also be associated with difficulty digesting food items like dairy or gluten causing unpleasant physical reactions. The most common symptoms are bloating and stomach pain both occurring within a few hours of eating. Other symptoms associated with food intolerance include wind, bloating, diarrhea, skin rashes, itching, headaches and so many more.

"It made an enormous difference"
I wanted to tell you how happy I am with your service. It has only been one week, and I have eliminated five of my top intolerances. (foods that I ate on a regular basis) It has made an enormous difference. I feel like a new person. I have so much energy, my head is so much clearer, my skin is so much better, and less body soreness. I am so thankful!

I was dealing with eczema!
I had been dealing with eczema for many years! My hands were so sore and raw that I had difficulty doing minor tasks. My doctor gave me multiple creams and medications over the years, but they only provided temporary relief. I tried gutChek and found several items that I reacted to. I avoided the foods that tested the highest and within 3 months my hands were healed and better than they had been in years. My doctor said that I was just in remission, but when I added a couple of the foods back in, I had another flare up. Now I know what to avoid and I'm no longer on any medication. DK
The majority of our articles focus on life insurance, health plans and other solutions to help protect you, your family and business. And while those themes are very important, we also like to share unique and interesting information and offerings for our clients.
It is for this reason that we have developed a relationship with an innovative company out of Calgary, Alberta that is helping people, and their pets, live their best lives by helping them understand the foods they eat, and how this impacts energy, mental health, fitness, immune system and more.
Though it may seem like a minor issue, getting to the bottom of digestive issues can be the key to reclaiming control of one’s life and eliminating a variety of symptoms such as nausea, upset stomach, rashes, headaches, joint pain, migraines etc.
Traditionally, there were only a couple of ways to figure out which foods were causing problems; do a very restrictive elimination/reintroduction diet over a couple of months and hope that it isolated the offending food, or take an expensive blood test. Neither is particularly appealing. This is why we were so excited when we recently discovered a third option; GutChek.
GutChek costs much less than the cost of a traditional blood test, yields much more accurate results, and doesn’t require any doctor’s visits or painful needles. All you need to do is send in a sample of your hair, mail it in, and they process it and send you your results. You get a comprehensive list of foods that you may be intolerant to and help identify vitamins missing from your diet.
You can also elect for a one-on-one consultation with a nutritionist to help take you through your results and assist in coming up with a reasonable game plan. GutChek is available for people and pets, and is a powerful and efficient way to take control of your health. One annual GutChek test has also been included in the Wellness Bundle of our new Executive Health Plan, BYOND Complete Executive Health.
