Food Sensitivity Testing
Food Sensitivity Testing – testing food reactions can be useful for individuals that suspect food is responsible for causing unpleasant symptoms in the body. If “leaky gut” is suspected or you are experiencing decreased immune function, a test to identify the triggers can be beneficial. Increased intestinal permeability(leaky gut) can be reversed through food, supplements and lifestyle changes.
Other types of adverse food reactions that are causing digestive challenges can be referred to as food intolerances. For example, MSG, gluten, splenda, dairy, nightshades and lectins can be reactive foods and cause immune system deficiencies. Adverse food reactions can lead to distressing symptoms and chronic health conditions . The timeline for healing food intolerances varies due to the individual and health considerations. With food changes, hydration, supplements, lifestyle, sleep and basic support your gut will heal.
