    How to find out more about solicitors in Bushey Heath

    Bushey Heath is a neighbourhood in the London Borough of Harrow. Feeling fit and healthy makes life seem worth living but having a reoccurring ailment can take away some of the pleasure we get out of doing everyday things. These ailments can actually be a symptom that you have a sensitivity to a certain food or it could be to more than one food. There are clues which should make you suspicious that your diet is affecting the quality of your life.

    Skin conditions can often be because of a food sensitivity as can wind or digestive problems. In fact, headaches too can be activated by eating a food which does not agree with you. If you have a reoccurring health problem and your doctor has not been able to help you, you could look to your diet.

    First of all, you need to link your symptoms with particular foods. Try to remember back if anything affected you as a child. This could be a clue as to what is causing your problem now; both a craving for and a strong dislike of a food indicate possible food sensitivity.

    Keep a diary

    Start a food diary and write down everything which you eat and drink and that does mean every single thing. You also need to keep a diary of your symptoms. This needs to be done for at least a month so that you can see a pattern emerging. Some symptoms may take up to four days to appear and yet others appear within minutes. This is what makes it difficult. Most symptoms last less than 24 hours except eczema which can last up to three weeks.

    If after doing this you have a suspect, stop eating it. Do not eat if for at least a week and if there is no change, keep it out of your diet for three weeks. If that is the culprit, you will see a change for the better in your symptoms in between one day and three weeks.

    If your symptoms are severe do not try to pinpoint your culprit food by yourself, get medical help. Furthermore, if the food you suspect is the culprit is one of nutritional importance, you should consult a dietician who will explain how to replace it. If you have high blood pressure or are on any drugs you should consult your doctor to make sure that it is safe for you to do the exclusion diet.

    A no win no fee basis

    Meanwhile there is a difference between having a food sensitivity and a food allergy. A food allergy can actually kill you if you eat the wrong food or make you drastically ill whereas a food sensitivity results in unpleasant symptoms which are not generally life threatening. So if you have a food allergy to nuts for instance, just a trace of them could threaten your life. If you eat out and the restaurant boasts that they do not have a trace of nuts on the premises but you eat there and are seriously ill with your allergy, you may be able to claim compensation with solicitors in Bushey Heath. You should telephone Accident Advice Helpline and find out if solicitors in Bushey Heath are likely to represent you. If they do and they win, it will be on a no win no fee basis.
