For those of you who are suffering with food sensitivities, you are more than likely seeking out options as to not only resolve your discomfort, but to also find the underlying root cause of that fit in the first place. This can be done by undergoing food sensitivity testing. This testing can be done in the comfort of our office. You are warmly invited to learn more about your intolerance to food and why it could benefit you to have food sensitivity testing.
Food Sensitivity vs. Food Allergy
Before we can expand on the importance behind getting a sensitivity test, it is necessary to address that there is indeed a difference between a sensitivity to foods and an allergy to foods. Allergies are intense, severe reactions, while sensitivities are more like intolerances. These intolerances can provoke the immune system, and they usually have delayed reactions.
The Importance of Testing for Sensitivities
If you have a food sensitivity, an issue that arises is that symptoms do not always appear all at once immediately after you have consumed your food or drink. In some cases, symptoms do not appear for days, if not weeks after your original consumption. By then, you have eaten and drunk numerous other things, which can cause confusion as to what is affecting you.
In such a case, undergoing food sensitivity testing early on will indicate a large number of food and drink items that are causing you problems. Once you receive these results, you will have a clearer idea as to what to avoid consuming as you know it will cause some complications down the road.
Testing for a food sensitivity is also important in terms of developing better eating habits overall. Our tests offer guidance on what foods to eliminate and even how to eliminate them. Without food sensitivity testing, you will still be doing guess work trying to discover which item, among many that you consumed, is the culprit behind your discomfort.
