This Traditional Chinese Tea May Be the Solution to Your Food Intolerance

It is estimated that over 15 million Americans suffer from food intolerance.
 
Yet according to recent research findings from a Global Food Intolerances Survey conducted by Your Tea, 45% of the people with food intolerance don’t know what’s causing it, and a staggering 88% can’t seem to find relief. An estimated 4 out of 5 people have an intolerance to two or more foods.
 
Obviously, there’s a serious issue going on. The question is – what exactly causes food intolerance, and what can we do about it?
 
 

What is Food Intolerance?

Food intolerance can be defined as any food or compound found in food that creates a negative reaction in the body and manifests as symptoms ranging from gas and fatigue to constipation and bloating. Burping, constipation, bloating, and diarrhea are a few of the most common symptoms associated with food intolerance.
 
An important clarification to make is that food intolerance is not the same as a food allergy. While food allergies are severe and can even be life threatening, a food intolerance is more a sign of what your body is not currently able to process. Having a food intolerance can lead to varying degrees of discomfort and negative physical reactions.
 
The two main culprits for food intolerance are gluten and dairy – staples in many people’s diets. Nuts and seeds, along with certain fruits and vegetables, are also on the list.
 
As a result of eating a particular food that your body is intolerant of, you will experience a range of symptoms that are often delayed. Many people who suffer from food intolerance eliminate foods they suspect may be the culprit, leaving them with limited options, especially when dining out.
 
And while there are products out there to help mask or alleviate the symptoms, Western medicine hasn’t yet found a cure. The Global Food Intolerances Survey found that peppermint tea is the most commonly used way to find relief, while 28% of people with food intolerance simply tolerate the symptoms.
 
Food intolerances can disrupt our quality of life and won’t go away without being addressed. Just like most issues in life, we must find the root cause in order to find the solution.
 
 

How Poor Digestion and Gut Health Are Related

We know what food intolerance is, we have the statistics, we recognize the symptoms, but what about the cause? As the rate of food intolerance is on the rise, is it the food itself, or is there something else going on?
 
Interestingly enough, the symptoms of food intolerance bear a striking resemblance to poor digestion. Perhaps so many people aren’t able to find relief because they haven’t found the root cause of the problem, which is actually gut health and poor digestion.
 
According to Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine Nat Kringoudis, “When the digestive system isn’t working properly we can experience fatigue, bloating, constipation, or diarrhea.” Translation: these symptoms don’t always mean you have a food intolerance and could instead be a result of poor digestion.
 
So what does our gut health have to do with poor digestion? Put simply, everything. The vast majority of our immune system lives in our gut, along with a plethora of ‘good bacteria’ that supports healthy system function for your entire body. If your gut health is out of balance, your digestion will suffer as a result.
 
 

Enter Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic approach to health that’s been used for thousands of years for many treatments, including rebalancing the digestive system. TCM is an intricate medical system that views the body as an entire energetic system that must work harmoniously in order to achieve optimal health.
 
Dr. Nat explains that being food intolerant isn’t “the final destination” and that by using TCM, we can actually “bring the body back to a better state of health by focusing treatment on the digestive system itself.”
 

Taking control of your digestion can mean taking control of your food intolerances.

 
In order to achieve and maintain optimal wellness, we must seek balance. This simple principle is a key concept of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Being attuned to living in harmony with nature is how Traditional Chinese Medicine was first developed, with a focus on creating balance to restore vitality and harmony within the body’s systems.
 
 

Your Tea Can Help

Your Tea has developed a range of herbal tea blends to bring the many health benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine to the modern wellness world. Your Tea makes the health benefits of TCM accessible for everyone in the affordable and convenient form of tea.
 
Dr. Nat expands on the power of Traditional Chinese Medicine and tea: “The ingredients focus on maximizing your digestive system, and Your Tea has developed tea blends to address the root cause of digestive issues.”
 
Your Tea offers a unique blend called Tiny Tea specifically made to balance your gut health and in turn, rebalance your digestive system. Natalie Kringoudis is the Doctor of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture who oversees the herbal blends that comprise Tiny Tea.
 
Lai fu zi is one ingredient found in Tiny Tea that improves gut function by reducing bloating. Cassia seed is another powerful ingredient that helps detoxify and cleanse the liver and also helps to calm the gut.
 
Tiny Tea is an herbal tea blend that contains powerful, natural ingredients to help reduce bloating, alleviate indigestion, and restore harmony and balance to your gut – all based on the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
 
 

Take Control of Your Digestion

In the wise words of Your Tea, balance your gut and watch your wellness soar. Taking control of your digestion can mean taking control of your food intolerances. It all starts with creating balance in your body and supporting gut health.
 
The best part is that finding relief to food intolerance and the related symptoms can be as simple as drinking tea with ingredients based in Traditional Chinese Medicine and backed by thousands of years of wisdom. Before you reach for the antacid bottle and before you give up your favorite food, try reaching for a cup of Tiny Tea.
