Food Sensitivity Testing

A serious allergic reaction to foods like shellfish or peanuts can trigger antibodies which are released, resulting in immediate symptoms affecting multiple organs, which can be severe or even life threatening.  However, there is another phenomena that can occur and that is when someone has reactions to certain foods that are not a full blown allergic reaction. We refer to these as food sensitivities or food intolerances.  A food sensitivity is usually a delayed reaction which can lead to gastrointestinal problems and chronic inflammation issues.  Most people are unaware of these sensitivities. Even though they may be experiencing symptoms, they may not know what is causing them.  

The following symptoms have been linked to food sensitivities:

  • Fatigue

  • Cognitive impairment

  • Headaches

  • Achy joints

  • Upset stomach

  • Gas, IBS and other bowel issues

  • Metabolic disorders such as obesity, diabetes and inability to lose weight

  • Inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, arthritis and other autoimmune disorders

Food sensitivity testing measures cellular reactions and is designed to assess sensitivities to a wide array of foods, chemicals and environmental substances. These sensitivities have been shown to be associated with both acute and chronic conditions. Someone with unknown food sensitivities can definitely benefit from knowing how food plays a role in your body.  The results can help determine which foods and other substances may trigger unwanted inflammation. This information is compiled into a personalized nutrition plan based on your immune response, which can assist with food choices that are better for your health. By cutting out those foods that you have intolerances for, you can desensitize these over time. As a result, many clinical symptoms associated with food sensitivity may be substantially improved or possibly prevented altogether. The test may help uncover which foods and other substances trigger chronic inflammation and its related health issues.
