Food Sensitivity Screening

Food-Sensitivity-Banner

 

A blood test is done to detect the presence of 132 food sensitivities.

Sensitivities to foods cause inflammation of the intestines. Once inflamed, even the foods you’re not sensitive to trigger an immune response effecting different organs throughout your body.

The average person is sensitive to 12 foods on our panel.

If you have one or more of these symptoms, there is a 95% chance you’ll benefit from a food sensitivity test:

1. Digestive Tract – diarrhea, constipation, bloated feeling, belching, passing gas, and stomach pains.
2. Energy & Activity – fatigue, sluggishness, apathy, hyperactivity, restlessness, and lethargy.
3. Joint & Muscles – pain in joints, arthritis, stiffness, limitation of movement, aches in muscles, and feeling of weakness.
4. Skin – acne, hives, rashes, hair loss, flushing/hot flashes, and excessive sweating.
5. Mind – poor memory, confusion, poor concentration, stuttering/stammering, and learning disabilities.
6. Ears – itchy ears, earaches, ear infections, drainage from ear, ringing in ears, and hearing loss.
7. Mouth & Throat – chronic coughing, gagging, often clear throat, sore throat, swollen tongue/lips, and cancer sores.
8. Head – headaches, faintness, dizziness, and insomnia.
9. Weight – binge eating, cravings, excessive weight, compulsive eating, water retention, and hay fever.
10. Nose – stuffy nose, sinus problems, hay fever, sneezing attacks, and excessive mucus.
11. Emotions – mood swings, anxiety, fear, irritability, anger, depression, aggressiveness, and nervousness.
12. Lungs – chest congestion, asthma, bronchitis, shortness of breath, and difficulty breathing.
13. ‘Other – irregular heartbeat, rapid heart, chest pains, frequent illness, urgent urination, and genital itch.

Patients who get a food sensitivity test will receive:
1. Four day rotational diet
2. Shopping List
3. Publications and cookbooks
4. Other foods to which you may be sensitive
5. Recipes/products that may contain foods you should avoid
6. Your Test Results

Your test results are 132 foods displayed in a color-coded bar graph.

Low sensitivities are green
Moderate sensitivities are yellow
Severe sensitivities are red

Treatment for the foods you are sensitive to are outlined in a four day rotational diet

– For moderate sensitivities the recommendation is three-monthavoidance followed by reintroducing the food into your diet every four days.
– For severe sensitivities the recommendation is six-monthavoidance followed by reintroducing the food into your diet every four days.

Foods to which you’re sensitive, cause intestinal inflammation, and symptoms up to four days after ingesting. It is therefore often impossible to pin point a food sensitivity symptom with out this screening. One may attribute a headache, for example, to daily stressors or another common cause. They would never make the connection by themselves that their headache is actually due to chicken they had three days earlier. (Example of an individual with sensitivity to chicken) This is very different from a food allergy symptom in which the individual often has an immediate reaction or symptoms.
