“Bread? There’s no way eating bread is causing my upset stomach AND making me that irritable. I’ve never had a problem with wheat.”
But did you know that lack of sunshine, something that you may have never guessed would impact your food sensitivities, could be the cause of your sudden problems with wheat?
We always say that your genes are just one piece of the puzzle. You have to look at your environment to get the full picture.
One of the best ways to see how your environment is impacting your health is through lab tests. That’s why SelfDecode is now offering health tests that you can order (and take!) at home.
One of the health tests that I am extremely excited to offer is the Food Sensitivity home test kit because when you use it alongside our Food Sensitivities DNA report, you can get insight into your health like never before!
Let’s say you’ve taken our Basic Food Sensitivity Home Test and your results show that you have a sensitivity to wheat, don’t panic! That doesn’t mean you need to cut wheat out of your diet right away. This is where the Food Sensitivity DNA report comes in.
Looking through the report, it turns out you have an overactive variant of the IL12A gene, which has been linked to wheat sensitivity. Normally this gene helps to promote inflammation, which allows us to fight off things like the flu. But your variant of the gene is overactive and causes your body to attack wheat, giving you bloating, gas and irritability (yes! Despite how much fun you had eating it, that pizza could be to blame for your bad mood).
But what you didn’t know is that low vitamin D also causes IL12A to be overactive, and you haven’t been getting out a lot since you started working from home, right? In fact you’ve noticed that your symptoms have also gotten a lot worse.
So now you know to get more “vitamin sunshine” to help out your sub optimally functioning IL12A gene and reduce your wheat sensitivity issues! In fact, you might be able to eat another slice of that pizza without side effects.
Your body is complicated.
That’s why you need to understand its blueprint (your genes!) and the way it’s functioning as a result of your environment.
And that’s exactly what we’re helping people do at SelfDecode.
