Dr. Oz said a food sensitivity or allergy wreaks havoc on your metabolism, skin, and digestive system, and noted the symptoms of food sensitivity:

Dr. Oz said there are also emotional symptoms of food sensitivity, including mood swings, rage, anxiety and sadness. Gedgaudas said she suffered from food allergies for years but got rid of them after following an elimination diet.
