Food Sensitivity Testing

When it comes to food sensitivity testing, there are a few very important things you should first know!

  1. Allergy vs. Sensitivity​​

    • Allergy

      • A food allergy is anything that produces an anaphylactic reaction.  This is very evident by symptoms such as hives, swelling, and difficulty breathing​

    • Sensitivity

      • A food, preservative, additive etc. that your body reacts to in a non anaphylactic way

      • This can be very subtle, behind the scenes, and even latent meaning that you don't notice anything after ingesting it, but it is definitely doing damage to your body

      • Sensitivities are very difficult to detect and either require careful monitoring under an elimination diet, or lab testing

  2. Testing Quality​

    • There are so many food sensitivity tests on the market right now.  For good reason, food sensitivity awareness is at an all time high, and so is testing.  So popular in fact you may have even seen commercials or internet ads for various new tests.  These new, do at home tests are wonderful in concept, except for they fall short in their testing capabilities, leaving you with inaccurate results
