If so, testing your food allergies and sensitivities is quite simply the quickest way I know to improve these kinds of nagging symptoms and others like them.
You can do it at home and it’s great for all the family, including young kids.
Not only does a food sensitivity test improve the way you look and feel, it also removes the guesswork from your diet and nutrition and ends confusion from all the conflicting information out there on which foods you should eat and avoid.
You get a traffic-light colour coded food chart that shows you which foods and which ones to avoid. It makes choosing food really easy and removes the strain from your mind.
Without question, removing foods that are causing your immune system to react brings results faster than any other lab test or “therapy” available today.
it’s also FREE to do. You don’t need fancy supplements, IV infusions, cleanses or anything else: you just find out which foods are bad for you as a unique person, and stop eating them.
Sometimes a food sensitivity test and some diet changes are all you need to feel well. Whatever your situation, a food sensitivity cannot do any harm whatsoever – it can only be a good thing.
It’s more a question of what conditions it cannot help. Food sensitivities cause or contribute to symptoms in all my Seven Areas of Health.
If you are struggling with any of the symptoms in the diagram, and are at a loss to explain them, a food sensitivity test can help uncover the root cause.
Let’s face it: there are more opinions on diet and nutrition than there are on politics. No wonder people get confused and frustrated!
Nobody seems to be able to agree on what foods are best for us and which ones are harmful. And that’s because there is no correct answer.
As Hippocrates famously said, “One man’s food is another man’s poison.”
No truer word was ever spoken. In my 20 years of helping clients, I can only agree with Hippocrates and say with absolute confidence that nutrition needs to be customized to each individual’s needs.
A food that is a great option for one person can make another feel very unwell, possibly even triggering serious diseases.
But your confusion stops here because you’re about to learn how you can scientifically test to see which foods might be harming you, enabling you to remove and replace them with safe and tasty alternatives.
This is what food sensitivity testing does for you. It enables you to take charge of your foods and symptoms.
Like diet and nutrition in general, food allergies is a complex area of work, but I want to make it ultra simple for you.
In a nutshell, there are different ways your body can react to food, and you need different tests for each type of reaction.
Imagine your immune system as one great big army. Within this army you have different battalions, each one being a sub-division of your immune system.
These sub-divisions are called IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG and IgM, and here’s what they do:
The IgG part of your immune system is the one that causes chronic, day-to-day symptoms. Unlike IgE reactions, which are true allergies, the IgG responses are insidious and happen in secret.
It is these reactions that cause ongoing digestive problems, low energy, headaches, muscle and joint pain, anxiety and depression, skin rashes and spots, and sleep problems.
Getting rid of these symptoms and feeling great again might just be a matter of avoiding your personal offending foods.
While you are eating your personal “bad foods”, no fancy drugs or supplements will help. You must remove the foods, which is really easy to do (and is completely FREE!)
Lactose and fructose are sugars found in cow’s milk and fruit/root veggies, respectively. These food intolerances do not rely on an immune system response to cause symptoms, so we do not test them.
In some people they cause problems because the sugars cannot be properly digested. When this happens, gut bacteria ferment the sugars and cause bloating, gas, abdominal diarrhea and irritable bowels.
However, you can also have immune system reactions to certain fruits and some of the proteins in cow’s milk such as casein.
Thus, even if you do not have fructose or lactose intolerance, you can still have a delayed food allergy reaction to cow’s milk and certain fruits, which is what we look at in this test.
This is a huge area and needs an entire book to do it justice. To cut a long story very short, identification of gluten sensitivity and coeliac disease need a set of completely different tests.
However you can have a delayed IgG immune reaction to wheat and other gluten-containing grains even if you are not gluten-sensitive. This is why it is so important to look at the IgG reactions in this test.
This really is the best food sensitivity test available for ease of use and price. There is a lot of science behind IgG testing.
As a Functional Medicine Practitioner, I can use most any company I choose, and this is my preferred lab.
I want the people I care for to get simple straightforward results at the best price, and this IgG lab test came out on top.
It is backed by science, only tests the foods you’re most likely to eat (so you save money), and it can be done right at home without the need to draw blood or go to a lab.
Plus, it’s great for testing the whole family (ages 1 and up).
Candida overgrowth is very common and causes a lot of problems.
These problems are caused when the harmless yeast form of Candida mutates to its fungal form in your intestine.
Candida can take over sections of your intestinal wall causing numerous symptoms both inside and outside your digestive system.
As it grows out of balance it produces toxins that create holes in the intestinal lining, leading to leaky gut syndrome.
After entering the blood, Candida albicans causes an inflammatory immune system response.
A wide range of disorders have been linked to Candida including autism, multiple sclerosis, depression, and chronic fatigue.
Stress, poor diet, use of antibiotics, oral contraceptives, chemotherapy, and anti-inflammatory steroids greatly increase susceptibility to Candida.
This food sensitivity test also tests your IgG response to Candida. If your response is strong,
When “bad foods” and “bad bugs” like H-pylori, Candida and parasites damage your stomach and intestine, they can cause leaky gut syndrome.
This is where gaps open up between the cells in your intestinal lining and allow things to “leak” through into your blood without being properly digested or processed first.
When you see a lot of foods showing up in the yellow and orange sections of the test, it indicates that you probably have a leaky gut.
As well as avoiding these foods, you can then use specific herbs and nutrients to accelerate your digestive healing and help you feel much better, faster.
You can see in the sample report below, that this person has some big issues with the following foods and food groups:
Also showing up as being somewhat problematic are:
You can also see in this sample report that the immune system is strongly reacting to Candida, so this person would need an anti-Candida program.
A dairy, gluten, egg and beef-free diet would be needed for a period of 60-90 days, along with a program to heal the gut lining which is probably “leaky”.
This test is very informative and helps you uncover reasons why you haven’t been feeling yourself.
The information also enables you make simple, customized steps to quickly improve your wellness and performance, and that of your family.
As well as scientific accuracy, I choose all my labs for ease of use. This means we can mail out a test kit in the UK, Europe, US, Canada, Australia, South Africa, or anywhere else.
You can usually complete your food sensitivity test and send it back to the lab in the very same week.
All you have to do is follow the simple instructions, use the automated finger stick to poke your finger once, and then fill up the circles on the card with a few drops of blood like the image further down.
After that, you just place it in the prepaid envelope and mail it back to the lab – it couldn’t be simpler.
The results take 3-4 weeks after you’ve mailed your test kit. At that time you will receive a full PDF of your results.
Research shows that as their bodies and immune systems are developing, children can be particularly affected by delayed food sensitivities.
Energy, mood, skin, concentration, digestion, sleep and all other areas of children’s health can be affected.
Unfortunately, there is no focus on testing these kinds of food reactions within the medical system, yet it is so unnecessary for kids to suffer and struggle.
This test is fantastic for kids because no stressful blood draw is needed – it’s just a tiny prick on the end of a finger and a few drops of blood dripped on to a card, like the picture below:
