You might have read the title of this blog and wondered if I made a mistake. What does winning Wimbledon and gluten sensitivity have anything to do with one another?
Well, if you have been to any of my classes on virtually any topic regarding health and wellness, inevitably the topic of food sensitivities comes up. I discuss the mechanisms behind "leaky gut" and how and why food sensitivities develop. I also review many of the common symptoms of food sensitivities such as:
2. Memory loss and poor concentration
3. Mental agitation and mood swings
4. Food cravings and compulsive eating
5. Weight problems and water retention
6. Headaches and migraines
7. Muscle and joint pain
8. Indigestion, gas, bloating, constipation and other GI problems
9. Restless or broken sleep
If you're one of the best tennis players in the world, then these certainly aren't going to help your game! In fact, they could severely hinder your ability to play at 100% of your ability. In fact, you don't have to be a professional athlete to notice the difference in quality of life if you're experiencing these symptoms.
Novak Djokovic was experiencing these symptoms but didn't even realize the correlation between what he was eating and the effects it was having on his body and on his game. I recently read an exiting and revealing article describing how he became aware of his problems and how changing his diet changed his game.
Here is the link to this article, I think you will find it just as intriguing as I did:
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above and would like to be evaluated and/or tested for Food Sensitivities, please give me a call. Just like the title of one of my classes states, "Change Your Diet, Change Your Life!" could be a reality for you!
Yours In Health,
Dr. P. Scott Timko
