Food Sensitivity Testing

Food Sensitivity Testing

What is the difference between food sensitivities and food allergies?
Food allergies are immediate reactions and occur within minutes of consuming the reactive food. These allergies can cause an immune system reaction that affects numerous organs in the body. It can cause a range of symptoms. In some cases, an allergic food reaction can be severe or life-threatening. In contrast, food sensitivity creates a delayed food reaction, which symptoms are generally less serious and often limited to digestive problems.

• Test reactivity to 96 most commonly consumed foods including dairy, meat, seafoods, fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, and nightshades.
• Since food sensitivities are delayed reactions, testing is the only way to determine which foods are responsible for the reaction. IgG reactions frequently occur to commonly consumed foods.
• Elimination diets are difficult to follow and can take months to complete. Our food sensitivity test can help pin point what foods to eliminate faster.
• Intestinal Permeability and Food Sensitivity – Your intestinal lining. in a healthy state will provide immunity against exposure to food antigens. Foods are not supposed cross the intestinal barrier to enter your blood stream. However, inflammation in the gut lining caused due to abnormal gut flora, stress, certain drugs and alcohol can cause the food particles to breach the barrier and enter the bloodstream where they cause an IgG antibody response. In a case where you see reactivity to multiple foods, an intestinal permeability may be the root cause.
