The terms food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances are often confused and used interchangeably, although they are unique physiological conditions. A true food allergy causes an immune system reaction that affects numerous organs in the body. It can cause a range of symptoms, and, in some cases, an allergic food reaction can be severe or life-threatening. In contrast, symptoms of food intolerances or sensitivities are generally less serious, but often more difficult to detect or diagnose. Some symptoms may include:
Our advanced food sensitivity testing identifies foods and additives that may be causing symptoms, such as chronic pain, headaches, indigestion, bloating, skin issues, and more. Some of the symptoms may only seem like minor annoyances today, but food sensitivities contribute to chronic inflammation which can lead to the development of chronic disease in the future.
Equally important to identifying the foods you should eliminate from your diet is identifying the foods that you are not sensitive to. This provides more dietary freedom to enjoy foods that you might be unnecessarily avoiding.
The results of your food sensitivity test results will be reviewed by our team of wellness experts in order to provide you with specific dietary guidance. You will learn exactly how you can adjust your diet to reduce symptoms and optimize your health and energy.

SENSITIVITY VS ALLERGY
Our food sensitivity testing measures your immune response to 96 different foods and food additives. It measures both IgA and IgG reactions, two markers of immune activation, to determine how your body is responding to each food. A food intolerance (or sensitivity) creates biological disturbances that may not be as noticeable or immediate as an allergic reaction, but they can contribute to an inability to lose weight, bloating, inflammation, indigestion, fatigue, depression, and chronic aches, pains, and headaches. Food sensitivities may seem less severe than allergies, but, in reality, both can create severe health concerns.
An allergy is identified by measuring the IgE immune marker. This is not part of the food sensitivity panel but it can be added to reveal the full spectrum of reactivity.
