Food Intolerance Profile Test

We’ll Help You Reveal Food Intolerances

Food allergies can also be called food sensitivities or food intolerances. They all can cause a variety of symptoms. We can help reveal and in some cases reduce or eliminate food allergies. Research has shown that around 60% of the US population suffers from food reactions that are causing health challenges.

Since there may be a delay in reaction time, you may not realize the symptom is caused by a hidden food allergy. When the problem food is consumed it increases the blood levels of IgG antibodies in reaction to the specific food.

Additional Information

The term “allergy” is often used as a catchall phrase to describe the body’s altered and excessive responses to otherwise harmless substances. However, a true allergic reaction is a function of the specific immune system while the broader category of intolerance is generally associated with nonspecific immunity.

Food intolerance is much more common than true food allergy. However, many people are unaware that they suffer from food intolerance because their symptoms may vary widely and often appear hours, or even days, after the causative agent is consumed.

The immune system is a double edged sword. It should react appropriately and protect against infection when confronted with harmful invaders or “infectious agents” like viruses or bacteria. Unfortunately for some, exposure to common foods, chemicals and molds may trigger chronic activation of the immune system.

Food sensitivities can begin at any age. Food intolerance can trigger many different symptoms and contribute to a variety of disorders in children and adults, including: learning disabilities, inflammatory bowel disease, fatigue, ADD / ADHD, anxiety, migraines, skin problems, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, sinusitis, chronic mucus and congestion and even recurrent ear infections.

It is easy to find out which foods are okay to eat and which foods need to be avoided.
