Our diets play a huge role in optimizing health and managing diseases.
Food sensitivities are delayed immune reactions to specific foods causing symptoms such as migraines, bloating, irritable bowel, inflammatory bowel disease flare-ups, gassiness, low energy, mood and memory disturbances, skin conditions, abdominal pain, and more.
With a blood sample, the food sensitivity test will give information about individual reactivity to over 100 foods and food components. Your naturopathic doctor will carefully go through the report with you to plan around eliminating certain reactive foods to reduce inflammation, improve digestion, and optimize your body's metabolic functions again. Most patients see improvements in symptoms with elimination of the offending foods in a few weeks.
Food sensitivity testing gives us valuable information on how we can use food to work with us again, not against us.
