“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” ― Ann Wigmore.
Feeling bloated, gassy and experiencing frequent bowel movements might feel normal for you since you have felt these symptoms for a long time. However, these symptoms might be a way of your body negatively responds to certain foods, or better put, having” food sensitivity”. Food sensitivities affect not just your digestive health, but can also compromise your gut’s integrity and emotional and physical health by impacting your immune system. Hippocrates said, “All disease begins in the gut.” Almost 80% of your body’s immunity is located in your gut. Among the health issues that have been linked to the breakdown in the health of your gut may include rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines, headaches, asthma, food allergies, chronic sinusitis, eczema, migraine, irritable bowel, and fungal disorders.
The Food Sensitivities testing helps identify those with IgG–mediated food intolerances. IgG antibody is related to delayed or non–lifethreatening food reactions that exacerbate or contribute to those mentioned above, and other, health problems. This antibody food sensitivity test is ideal for people who may suffer from delayed reactions/sensitivities to specific foods. This test measures your body’s reaction/sensitivity to 87 different foods, including commonly consumed foods such as corn, milk, eggs, and wheat. Below is a sample report of the test.
If you have been experiencing undiagnosed symptoms for a while and visited a few physicians without obtaining a diagnosis or relief of your symptoms, this test could be the right one for you.
When it comes to healing the gut, it is equally important to know what to exclude as it is to know what to include. This can be very individual, and a consult with our expert Registered Dietitian can truly be life altering. She can carefully evaluate your specific needs and develop a targeted food elimination plan and protocol. If you have any questions, call us at 941-749-0741.
