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.
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:
Once you schedule a food sesnsitivity test, you will meet with our nutrition provider for a short assessment and to collect a sample for the test in the office, the collected sample it is sent to an outside lab for processing.
Results of the test are then sent to In Touch Counseling Services, allowing our nutrition provider to use the information to create a plan that elimintes the symptoms and meets your overall health goals discussed in the initial meeting.
A 30 minute follow up appointment is scheduled to review the results, to gain valuable insight into which foods are causing inflammation and the physical and mental symptoms it causes; as well as review the individuialized plan that our nutrition provider has created for you to meet your goals.
The cost of food sensitivity testing varies widely. At In Touch Counseling Services we have created a $325 Food Sensitivity Testing Package that includes a 45 minute initial consult with our provider for the sample collection and a 30 minute review after the results are received (A $375 value).
