Continually eating foods that we are intolerant to leads to gut damage and lack of the ability to absorb essential nutrients - leading in turn to food cravings as our bodies scream out for those missing nutrients. We eat and eat and become more and more nutritionally deprived and sick. Eliminating the offending foods and adding the right probiotics allows the gut to heal over time and restores the ability to absorb the nutrients that were lacking, removing the need to binge eat and improving overall health and WellBeing!
Here is a great example of one woman who experienced all of this!
"For years I had food allergies without realizing it, and I became increasingly nutrient deprived. Because I was nutrient starved, I began to binge eat. I was 12 going on 13, which is a pretty common age to begin a disordered relationship with food, so I just assumed that this was an emotional problem, not a physical problem, and I blamed myself.
I thought my tendency to binge eat meant that I was weak. That it was clear evidence that I had no self control. And because I was doing this to myself (no one was forcing me to eat) I thought that I had no one to blame but myself. So I just felt completely out of control, filled with shame, regret, uncomfortably full, and yet still ravenous. People tried to give me advice, to help me manage this, but it was always about portion control and weight management which just served to cement my erroneous and damaging idea that my needs were fundamentally wrong and therefore, untrustworthy.
So imagine my surprise when I just stopped binging. Just like that.
And no I didn't suddenly acquire discipline or will power. I simply stopped eating the foods that I'm allergic to. And as my gut started to heal from years of damage, I started to absorb nutrients for the first time in almost a decade, and I lost my need to binge."http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mobileweb/lillian-medville/the-link-between-food-all_b_2200513.html
