Food SENSITIVITY testing

The food you eat may be impacting your health in more ways than you know.

In fact, many non-seemingly related conditions such as IBS, digestive problems, migraines, mood disorders, acne, and eczema, may actually be correlated to adverse food reactions. Thankfully, our center can help you recognize the symptoms of food sensitivity and offer testing options to identify trigger foods.

When we consider adverse food reactions, we typically think of hives, swelling, or even anaphylactic shock - the immediate responses associated with allergies to common offenders like peanuts or shellfish. Known as Immunoglobulin E (IgE), these food allergies are easy to identify because of their immediate onset. 

 

But what about the less obvious symptoms caused by the foods we eat?

Unlike food allergies, reactions from food sensitivities may occur hours or even days after eating the offending food. Delayed food sensitivities, known as IgG-mediated reactions, are sometimes blamed on aging or other environmental factors. Most sufferers are unaware that their symptoms are related to the foods they are eating.
