Food Sensitivity Testing

Easing symptoms by detecting food sensitivities.

Food sensitivity can manifest itself by producing a variety of symptoms and can affect almost any organ.

Bespoke elimination diets, as compared to generically restricted
diets, highlight significant therapeutic benefits relevant to many
chronic health conditions.

Foods may be an important trigger for autoimmunity in vulnerable patients.

Foods such as casein found in Cow's milk, wheat, gliadin, and egg white protein repeatedly showing up as key culprits.

A significant number of people have reported improvements in various health conditions following an IgG guided elimination diet with many experiencing a return in symptoms when the offending foods were reintroduced.

While food sensitivities must not be thought of as causative nor a replacement for prescribed medication or conventional care, identifying and eliminating those that provoke a significant IgG reaction have been associated with symptom improvement in a diverse range of health issues such as;

  • Depression
  • Migraine
  • Autism
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Irritable bowel disease / leaky-gut syndrome
  • Asthma
  • Eczema and atopic dermatitis
  • Arthritic joint pains / inflammatory arthritis
  • Chronic fatigue / post viral syndrome

A possible explanation between food and symptom exacerbation.

Diet and lifestyle stressors are increasingly recognised as
contributing factors towards the breakdown of epithelial cell wall
integrity, commonly termed intestinal permeability, or leaky gut.

Once this vital first line immune defence system is breached,
poorly digested foods, along with pathogens including viruses,
bacteria, and endotoxins, gain access to the body stimulating
unwanted immune responses, inflammation, and symptoms.
