FOOD ALLERGY TESTING
From stomach pain to brain fog, joint stiffness to chronic sinus infections, the food we eat can be the culprit. Diagnostic testing has come a long way from the days of skin prick testing. We have an advanced blood test that uncovers which foods stimulate antibody reactions to certain foods that can even last up to 3 days after eating them. Antibodies to foods called IgE are the typical allergy and anaphylactic reaction. But other antibodies called IgG, IgG4, and IgA are what give us food sensitivities. Once discovered, we can begin to remove these foods and heal the damage caused in the digestive system. There are other tests that can aid in the diagnosis of more serious illnesses such as dysbiosis, candida, SIBO, IBS and IBD (ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease). The digestive system is such a crucial part of our health, that when it becomes sick or unbalanced, many other health conditions appear. Some examples of conditions caused by an unhealthy digestive system are rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, depression, anxiety, obesity, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, hypertension, allergies, chronic infection, and even some cancers! Getting to the root cause is an essential first step in helping people feel their best.
