Food Sensitivity Testing

Is Your Food Making You Sick?

Even Healthy Foods Can make You Sick

Removal of highly reactive foods from the diet is a non-invasive therapy that often mitigates a patient’s symptoms.

The clinical significance of IgG food testing was illustrated in an early article published by an otolaryngologist who reported that the majority of his patients had substantial health improvements after eliminating foods found positive by IgG food allergy testing. The study demonstrated a 71% success rate for all symptoms, achieving at least a 75% relief. Of particular interest was the group of patients with chronic, disabling symptoms, unresponsive to other intensive treatments.

What are Food Sensitivities?

Food sensitivity is where the digestive system has a difficult time breaking down a certain type of food leading to discomfort, but is not a life-threatening condition. Food sensitivity is a digestive response, not an immune response as is with food allergies. The inability to break down certain types of foods can lead to anxiety, fatigue, gas, diarrhea, and other unpleasant symptoms. These symptoms can occur within a few hours after eating with the main source of relief coming from limiting or eliminating problem foods.

Which Patients Can Benefit from Food Sensitivity Testing?

Digestive health is the key to total wellness. Understanding the IgG response from certain foods is a critical tool in shaping the diet to achieve complete gut health and overall wellness. While a food sensitivity is not a life threatening health risk, understanding your body’s sensitivities can improve your overall quality of life. Increase your awareness of what your body reacts to and make better food choices that will help alleviate symptoms you may not have realized were caused by foods.
