WE TEST FOR FOOD SENSITIVITY & MICRONUTRIENT DEFICIENCY

FOOD SENSITIVITY

Additional Information

An innovative tool that tests IgG & IgA reactivity to 96 most commonly consumed foods including Dairy, Meat, Seafood, Fruits, Vegetables, Grains, Legumes, Nuts and Nightshades amongst others.


WHAT IS FOOD SENSITIVITY?

Food Sensitivity is your body’s response (IgG antibody reactions) to certain foods that occur hours to days after certain foods are consumed. These are also termed as delayed food reactions.


SYMPTOMS TO CONSIDER FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING

  • Abdominal pain
  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Skin itchiness and redness
  • Rashes like eczema
  • Bronchitis and asthma symptoms
  • Musculoskeletal joint pain
  • Muscle stiffness and swelling
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Sweating and feeling weak

Undetected food sensitivities could lead to symptoms and systemic changes that are associated with certain conditions/illness.


DIGESTIVE DISORDERS

Conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Crohn’s disease have been linked to IgG food reactions. Research has shown that elimination of IgG reactive foods can alleviate IBS symptoms.


MIGRAINES

A 2007 research study found that 43/65 patients with migraine headaches had complete remission of headaches after one month of eliminating reactive foods. Another study in 2010 found a significant reduction in the number of headache days and migraine attacks with elimination of reactive foods.


MOOD/ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDERS

Deposition of antibody antigen complexes in nervous system tissues may contribute to hyperactivity, depression, anxiety, inability to concentrate and other mood disorders. There is some evidence that eliminating IgG food antigens improve attentiveness in children.


WEIGHT GAIN

Antibody-antigen complexes in tissue cause inflammation, which leads to fluid retention and weight gain. To fight inflammation, the body releases a chemical called ghrelin, which also happens to be an appetite stimulant. Thus, IgG food reactions may contribute to weight gain in two ways: fluid retention and increased appetite.

MICRONUTRIENT TESTING

Additional Information

Micronutrient testing measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within your white blood cells.  These tests allow nutritional assessment of a broad variety of clinical conditions, general wellness and the prevention of chronic diseases including arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular risk, diabetes, various immunological disorders and metabolic disorders.
