Find out if doing a food sensitivity test is right for you.
I recommend anyone with stomach/digestive issues do 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 did 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 and have seen great results with all kinds of issues by just finding out what foods trigger symptoms and avoiding those foods. (Check the list below to see if you would benefit from it.) 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 first step is to get a blood sample to send to the lab. This is done by pricking a finger and filling in 5 circles.
Next it is mailed to the lab and usually takes 2 weeks for results.
After that the report comes in.
The report is broken in to no reactivity, 1 Star (mild), 2 Star (moderate), 3 Star (severe)
Based on this report a food recommendation list is formed and supplements to heal the gut if needed.
The test covers 96 foods for sensitives.
