FUNCTIONAL PATHOLOGY TESTING
FOOD ALLERGY AND SENSITVITY TESTING
Get on top of the digestive issues you have.
Does food confuse you? Some days the food you eat is fine, other days the same thing will cause bloating, bowel changes, and digestive discomfort? Food testing can help you uncover what foods are right for you and which ones you need to avoid or limit
Adverse reactions to food may initiate a myriad of physiological effects in the body.
This is a lifelong immune response to certain food/s. These reactions can be immediate and serious. Some of the most common foods that cause allergies are peanuts, shellfish, eggs, and dairy. Symptoms can range from hives to difficulty breathing.
What is a food intolerance/ sensitivity?
Food intolerance is when you have trouble digesting a food item well. These effects may occur some days after eating the foods.
Intolerances can happen for numerous reasons, the two most common are:
The body may be lacking the essential digestive enzymes to thoroughly digest a certain food leading to the numerous digestive/bodily symptoms
Sensitivity may even occur from excess consumption or overexposure to a certain food.
When you do not digest the foods, you eat properly you may absorb the nutrients less well and that can lead to deficiencies
To test for intolerance or a sensitivity call to book an appointment today.
As seen in the report below IgE food reactions are fast in onset and usually involve reactions such as diarrhoea, skin rashes, wheezing, abdominal cramping, swelling, hives, or the most severe reaction, anaphylaxis.
IgG food reactions (also known as food intolerance, food sensitivity) are more indirect in their display, often happening several hours to days following exposure to food antigens.
Unlike IgE food reactions, IgG food reactions produce cumulative symptoms. So frequent exposure can lead to delayed food reactions that may harm any organ or tissue in the body.
