How can I determine food intolerance?

Food intolerance: The usual way to determine food intolerance is to go on an elimination diet for several weeks, followed by gradual reintroduction of foods suspected of causing digestive or other issues. Then you see how your body responds to each food. There are many ways to go about this, but an integrative medicine physician can help you. Commonly offending foods include gluten, dairy, eggs, and soy.
