Elimination Diets Part 1: The Whole30 and Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) In cases of food allergies, intolerances, or sensitivities, they may provide unpleasant symptoms such as bloating, gas, or constipation. And they may also cause non-GI issues such as headaches, acne, joint pains, mood changes, low energy levels, and itchy eyes. Everybody’s body responds to foods differently. Sometimes, our body doesn’t necessarily love every food we eat, or our immune system might recognize something as a foreign invader.
