Food Sensitivity Testing

About Food Sensitivity Testing

Food sensitivity testing tests for IgG immune responses to a variety of different foods. This is different from a “true allergy” which tests for an IgE response. Unlike food allergies, reactions from food sensitivities may occur hours or even days after eating a certain food.

When done properly, this type of testing can uncover sensitivities to certain foods that may be triggering an inflammatory response of the immune system and causing both physical and emotional symptoms making it difficult for them to live life well. 

 What are the core symptoms of food sensitivity?

A tremendous amount of health problems can be linked to food sensitivities. Common everyday problems like: autoimmune disease, anxiety, migraine, aching joints , gastrointestinal disorders, leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), eczema, hyperactivity/ADHD, asthma and even obesity can have their origins in food sensitivities. 

Those who have food sensitivities may be experiencing a variety of issues such as:

  • Acne
  • Allergies
  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Brain fog
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Gas
  • Headaches / Migraine
  • Joint pain
  • Nausea
  • Skin Conditions 
  • Weight gain

How does food sensitivity testing work?

A food sensitivity test is scheduled and you will completed in the office and the collected sample  it is sent to an outside lab for processing.

Results of the test are then sent to In Touch Counseling Services and an appointment is scheduled.  

A review of the food sensitivity results with a provider will provide valuable insight into which foods are causing inflammation and the physical and mental symptoms it causes.  This allows your provider to create a plan that eliminates the symptoms and improves your overall health.
