Food sensitivities and allergies

The more and more research I do the more I am realizing a lot of people have food sensitivities and food allergies they are unaware they even have which can be causing there everyday fatigue, headaches, migraines, sinus issues, ect.... Tests are only of a limited value in detecting food allergies and no real test for food sensitivities. Such sensitivities are usually hidden and are actually caused by the foods we crave...CRAZY I know! 
The only real way to identify the foods that cold be bothering you is to do a carefully planned elimination diet. Easier said than done! I've actually read a ton on this and still not 100% confident on this whole elimination diet, there is a lot to it and does not seem easy.
How nice would it be though to finally figure out why you have trouble concentrating or always get those sinus headaches, it could all be from gluten or even dairy, who knows. Figuring it all out is the hard part.

Anyway too much to get into but I wanted to just bring it up. Thought this clip on the Today show this morning was awesome and wanted to share. Just proof diet (eliminating certain foods), nutrition (supplements), ect... can make a world of difference.

Check it out

Peace and Love,
