Compared with allergies, food sensitivities are vague and delayed reactions to foods. This is suspected when symptoms can include fatigue, weight changes, headaches, digestive disturbances, sore joints and skin reactions. Treatment plans involve elimination of highly reactive foods in addition to the prescription of gut healing nutrients.
Food sensitivity testing is ideal for patients who may suffer from delayed reactions/sensitivities to specific foods. Moreover, it may also provide insight on intolerances, or non-immune responses, to certain foods.
Different than food allergies, sensitivities are vague and delayed reactions to different foods. Suspected when symptoms can include fatigue, weight changes, headaches, digestive disturbances, sore joints and skin reactions.
A treatment plan involves elimination of highly reactive foods in addition to gut healing nutrients. Common or suspected foods are removed from the diet for a period of time and then reintroduced in a specific way to see if there is an effect on your symptoms. Typically, we use the results of the blood test to guide a more specific diet to see if the foods that tested positively recreate your symptoms after being eliminated and then reintroduced into your diet in a specific way.
