You eat what you consider a healthy diet. (Or maybe you don’t and you need help here too.) What you’re dying to know is this: why don’t I feel better?
Many of us unknowingly eat foods that produce inflammation in our bodies. We may even assume these foods are good for us, but the inflammation they cause can lead to all sorts of issues such as irregular moods, chronic pain, and even weight gain.
Is there a way to find out what you should and should not eat?
We’ve developed a streamlined process to figure it out. Through a simple finger prick test and a food elimination program, we can determine your unique food sensitivities and build a nutritional plan that works for your tastes and lifestyle.
What is food sensitivity?
Food allergy, intolerance, and sensitivity are terms that can be used to describe how our body can react to foods that don’t agree with us. Here’s the difference:
- True food allergy (IgE mediated) – immediate hypersensitivity reaction, you notice something (like hives) immediately following ingestion of a certain food. Allergists often diagnose true food allergies.
- Food Intolerance – symptoms are usually related to digestion. Think chronic issues like bloating, diarrhea, constipation, or abdominal pain. The best “test” for this is an elimination diet.
- Food Sensitivity (IgG or IgA mediated) – delayed hypersensitivity reaction – symptoms can show up not only in the digestive tract, but also as skin rashes, or generalized inflammatory symptoms like joint pain, headaches, brain fog, or autoimmune disease.
