If you have any food sensitivities, you could have Lyme.
Lyme can cause people to develop food sensitivities or allergies. Some are even misdiagnosed with Celiac disease. Lyme and coinfections can induce a phenomenon called “Leaky Gut Syndrome”. Essentially this means the gut develops weak spots and holes through which undigested food particles can flow. These food particles then enter the body in a non-normal way, and the immune system doesn’t recognize them so it thinks they are invaders. The immune system then signals to ‘fight’ these invaders, and the inflammatory process begins. The symptoms of food sensitivities and Leaky Gut are not limited to gastro-related woes. Perry Louis Fields (elite runner who claims she is now cured from her once debilitating multi-year battle with Lyme, and she’s also going for the Olympics this summer) said her gluten and citrus allergies presented as sinus infections and earaches.
