What Does Food Sensitivity Testing Involve?
Initially, we do a simple blood draw for our comprehensive food sensitivity testing. Afterward, we send the blood sample to the lab where they test it for allergy-related antibodies known as immunoglobulin G (IgG). The presence of these antibodies can indicate that the body is having an immune response to certain foods, spices, and anything else that your body is ingesting. Lastly, the test results are usually ready in a week or two. The top 8 offenders for food sensitivity are:
- Crustacean Shellfish
- Tree Nuts
- Wheat (Gluten)
Many times ‘The Big 8’ (above) and other types of foods will create inflammation that builds within the body. This build up stays aggravated as you eat the same inflammatory foods over and over, therefore, keeping the body in a constant state of fighting off the aggravation. It can make you constantly tired. It can also be an indicator for unexplained pain such as fibromyalga, joint pain, rashes, skin irritations, headaches, digestive issues, and even depression.
Food Sensitivity Test and Treatment
Once we identify the cause, the obvious first step is to eliminate the food from your diet. That may be easier said than done depending on what your particular trigger food is. Many items we buy already have some of the top 8 irritants in them. Items such as soy and wheat (gluten) are common in packaged or processed foods. It may take some label studying to figure it all out but our professional staff will assist you with what to look for. Remember, it can take two to four weeks to see a difference once the sensitivity is removed from the diet.
