Did you know your lactose intolerance could actually be a food sensitivity? Do you know the difference between the two? If not, then this is the perfect episode for you! Lactose intolerance is a big deal that scares a lot of people away from dairy products like milk, ice cream and most importantly cheese. And cheese is delicious. In this episode we’ll go over the components of milk as a complex substance, the possible nutritional benefits of consuming dairy for some people, and what you can do to correct your intolerance or sensitivity. Not only could correcting this issue provide you with the ability to avoid running to the bathroom after consuming dairy, but it also greatly broadens the type of nutrients you can utilize. Listen in as Tony, Will and Kinna answer your questions!

- Why food allergy tests are not always accurate.

On our Kick It Naturally show, we cover how most symptoms, or health issues, can have a variety of underlying causes. When the goal is to improve a symptom or health issue, the first step should always be to look at your own chemistry to figure out what may be causing the problem. The almost free 4-week Digestion Course that we talk about in this episode is a great way to learn how to run simple tests you can do at home, and get an idea of imbalances that may be occurring in your body chemistry.
Once you understand the imbalances you may be dealing with, you can listen to our episode about that topic to better understand how different imbalances can cause that symptom or health issue. If you are seem to have a strong imbalance that is commonly the underlying cause of the issue you’re dealing with, now you have a place to start. If you can do the work to improve that imbalance, you may find that the symptom could improve right along with it.
