Food Sensitivity Testing

I recommend anyone with stomach/digestive issues take a food sensitivity test. These tests are very simple and easy, yet can make a world of difference in health. My husband and I both took a test in 2013. We are so much healthier as a result. This is why I started to offer it as a service in my office. I have seen great results with all kinds of issues just by finding out what foods trigger symptoms and avoiding those foods. I found out that some of the healthy foods I was eating, like spinach and almonds, were not so healthy for my body. This can be key for weight loss and healing. 60% of our immune system comes from the health of our gut. If the gut isn’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.
 
Food allergies are almost a trendy thing now. Going Gluten-Free is a great thing to do, but it won’t necessarily help you to lose weight if you are eating the GF junk grains (especially if you are also sensitive to rice or corn). This test will not tell you true allergies, but it does tell you if your body is sensitive. The test covers 96 foods for sensitives.

What is the Process for Food Sensitivity Testing?

 
  1. Get a blood sample. This is done by pricking a finger and filling in 5 circles. 
  2.  The blood is then mailed to the lab. It usually takes 2 weeks for the results.
  3.  The report comes in. It is broken into no reactivity, 1 Star (mild), 2 Star (moderate), 3 Star (severe).
 
Based on this report, a food recommendation list is formed, as well as recommended supplements to heal the gut, if needed.
 

Medications, prescription or non-prescription, may affect your test results, in some cases resulting in a false positive for an allergen or showing a false negative result for an allergy. Please consult with your physician before ordering these tests.

 

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, food sensitivity testing could help you identify the culprit.
