Food Allergy vs Food Sensitivity

Food Allergy: A food allergy is an immune system reaction that occurs when the body mistakenly identifies a specific food, such as eggs, peanuts, or milk, as harmful. This triggers the IgE portion of the immune system, resulting in an immediate response. For example, someone with a strawberry allergy might eat strawberries and develop an instant rash on their face. Because the reaction is immediate and easily identifiable, testing is often unnecessary as the culprit food is apparent.

Food Sensitivity / Intolerance: Food intolerance, also known as non-allergic food hypersensitivity, refers to various physiological responses to certain foods or compounds found in foods. Unlike allergies, which involve the IgE immune response, food sensitivities primarily trigger the IgG portion of the immune system. It's crucial to distinguish between the two types of reactions.

We focus on testing for delayed sensitivity responses rather than immediate ones. These delayed reactions occur within 10-12 hours or even up to 72 hours after consuming the offending food. Patients often struggle to identify these delayed reactions on their own due to the lengthy time frame involved. Therefore, objective testing becomes essential. Our comprehensive testing evaluates approximately 100 foods to precisely determine your individual reactions.

Food Sensitivity Testing

Food sensitivities or intolerances arise from the body's inability to properly digest certain foods which primarily affects the digestive tract, unlike food allergies which involve the bloodstream. Symptoms of food sensitivities are often delayed, sometimes appearing hours or even days after consumption. It's important to note that food sensitivities are not static and may fluctuate throughout one's lifetime. Interestingly, individuals may find themselves craving foods to which they are sensitive. Some researchers propose that this craving could be linked to the body's addiction to chemical messengers like histamine or cortisol, which are released by immune cells in response to allergens. These messengers may provide a soothing effect, heightening the desire for more of the offending food. It's essential to recognize that both food sensitivities and allergies can change over time. Just because a sensitivity or allergy is diagnosed at one point does not mean it will persist indefinitely. Therefore, regular testing, ideally annually, is recommended to stay informed about one's dietary sensitivities and allergies.

Nutrient Deficiency Testing

While adhering to a balanced diet and supplementing with multivitamins are commendable steps towards improved health, they may not suffice to attain optimal nutritional equilibrium. It's crucial to recognize that being healthy isn't just about what you eat, but rather about what your body effectively absorbs. A growing number of individuals are facing gastrointestinal challenges such as IBS, leaky gut, Crohn's disease, and gluten intolerance, hindering their ability to absorb vital nutrients necessary for optimal health. Our nutrient deficiency test offers a precise and objective assessment of your body's specific nutritional requirements and highlights any deficiencies your diet may be overlooking. Since everyone's nutritional needs vary, we strongly advise against guesswork when it comes to your health.

Identifying these deficiencies allows us to tailor a personalized plan to address them, whether through dietary adjustments or targeted nutritional supplementation. By pinpointing nutrient deficiencies, we can guide you in designing a customized strategy to enhance your overall health and well-being or uncover underlying root causes contributing to health challenges. Our comprehensive nutrient deficiency testing examines 34 different vitamins and nutrients, ensuring a thorough evaluation of your nutritional status.
