Food Sensitivity Testing

Food sensitivities are a common, but hidden cause of underlying inflammation and lethargy, and can contribute to conditions like asthma, congestion, chronic sinus infections, headaches, migraines, bloating, acid reflux, joint pain and many others.  In the broadest sense, food sensitivities are a burden to your whole system.


It's important to test, and remove any food sensitivities in order for your body to perform at its best.  Food sensitivities are basically an inappropriate reaction by your immune system to foods you ingest.


This process is actually a constant, underlying energy drain on your body.  Your immune system is distracted, trying to deal with foods that it perceives as a threat - this process takes a lot of energy and of course there are the side effects that immune reactions cause throughout your body.

Removing food sensitivities (and thus the causes of some symptoms) is an important place to start with diet.  In our opinion, it is much more important to use this knowledge to guide your diet, rather than chasing the latest diet fad of the day.
 

There just isn't one perfect diet for everyone. We're all individuals and different people have different tolerances to the foods they eat. There isn't one food that is particularly "bad" for everyone. As the saying goes "test, don't guess".  

 

Having the knowledge of which foods your system is sensitive to is powerful information and is a great way to really udnerstand your body, your diet and how you can really fine tune your health. 

Food Sensitivities vs Food Allergies

There's a big difference. Food allergies are typically immediate, dramatic reactions to foods. Think coughing, wheezing, swelling, hives, vomiting, diarrhea.  Oftentimes allergic reactions are severe and can even be life threatening (anaphylaxis). 

Food sensitivities are much different. These are more of a 'smoldering' reaction that occurs more slowly.  Symptoms aren't life threatening but are more chronic in nature. 

 

Food sensitivities are completely different from food allergies!

How the Test Works

When a food sensitivity occurs, the immune system produces a protein (antibody IgG) in response to a food that it perceives as 'unfriendly'.  IgG binds those specific food proteins and this complex then circulates throughout the body, causing symptoms.  

Symptoms of Food Sensitivites

 

A variety of symptoms can occur; however these are the most common we've seen in 18 years of testing:
 

  • Fatigue

  • Digestive problems (diarrhea, cramping, bloating, nausea, constipation, pain, etc)

  • Joint pain

  • Congestion/Sinus problems

  • Inflammation

  • Asthma

  • Cough

  • Headaches and Migraines

  • Itching

  • Rashes

  • Brain fog

  • Autoimmune diseases (aggravation)

  • Behavioral issues in kids

  • Frequent illness (sensitivities 'distract' your immune system keeping it from doing it's main job)

Foods Tested


We'll test for 96 different foods.  Here's a list of the foods tested:

Simple, At Home Testing, Confidential Results

 

You'll receive a test kit which involves a simple and painless finger stick, collecting a small amount of blood, and then mailing it off to the lab - all of which can be done from your home.
 

Take charge of your diet, and health.  Test, don't guess!
