One of the posters above mentioned this issue and wondered if I could get your thoughts on it.
It's the issue of getting more sensitive to chemicals/foods, as you clean up/restrict your diet.
It's something many on this forum and elsewhere seem to experience. In some ways it's obvious, you avoid an intolerant food for a month, then eat a moderate quantity of that food and in that moment you can feel worse than when you were previously eating that food.
I've heard attempted explanations along the lines of your body revealing it's 'true' reactions to foods and chemicals, and that for example a more prominent reaction to perfume is a healthy warning sign that it is to be avoided and is causing damage.
But I don't buy it. I'd rather not smell/not be affected by a chemical than have to avoid all the potential social situations where it could affect me. I see more and more people get more and more sensitive to foods as time goes on, and not better despite removing the offending foods and attempting to heal the gut. So instead of the problem being unmasked (detox/withdrawal) initially when you stop the offending foods and then healing, the problem gets unmasked and worse over time.
What do you think to this? How can you explain a worsening of food tolerance with a less aggravating diet?
