Joanna and I talk about how food chemical sensitivity often presents like IBS but is unresolved with typical IBS interventions. In addition, these patients also have extra-intestinal symptoms. We discuss salicylates, glutamates, and amines as well as other sources of food chemicals, and gaps in the current literature around food chemical sensitivity.
