Have you ever wondered why certain foods sometimes cause digestive symptoms, but other times those same foods seem to be no problem?
The reason is because food sensitivities are delayed hypersensitivity reactions. This means the sensitivities cause discomfort can occur anytime within several hours or several days after eating the food. This is also the reason why it is difficult to figure out which foods are behind digestive sensitivity issues!
Often times people will guess that the food they ate an hour ago caused a problem, when in fact it could actually be what they ate earlier that week.This is where food sensitivity testing comes in! It is a blood test that identifies antibodies for 120-220 different foods in a report that is easy to understand and implement into your diet.
In addition to causing uncomfortable digestive symptoms, food sensitivities are also connected to non-digestive symptoms, including eczema, psorasis, skin rashes, joint pain, fatigue, migraines, and any condition related to excess levels of inflammation.
This blood test is sometimes covered by extended health benefits. Book now with our Kamloops Naturopath before this calendar year is over!
