Resolving Food Sensitivities
Do you have unresolved symptoms, like stomach disorders, migraines, obesity, ADHD, fatigue, asthma, skin problems, nasal or other chronic conditions? Believe it or not, these can all be caused by food sensitivities.
I know–I too have suffered from migraines, canker sores, breakouts, hives and other symptoms of Food Sensitivities. That’s why I want to share with you what I’ve found to be most helpful in resolving them.
Food allergies and food sensitivities are actually two different things. While food allergies happen right away and can cause serious reactions like anaphylactic shock, food sensitivities are often delayed and can cause a variety of chronic symptoms like those I’ve mentioned. Since they can show up anywhere from 24 hours to four days later, they are often difficult to diagnose, so blood tests seem to be most accurate.
Modern living has made the likelihood of food sensitivities worse, due to things like GMOs (genetically modified organisms), Leaky Gut Syndrome or an imbalance in gut bacteria (Candida).
We test your blood through the Elisa/Act sensitivity testing to discover what may be impacting your immune system and when you blood reacts to specific antigens, it means you’re sensitive to them. ELISA/Act Laboratories tests your reaction to foods, molds, toxic metals and chemicals, and medications.
Once we get the results, we create a plan of recovery that may include changes in eating habits, supplements that help heal the gut and reduce inflammation, foods and spices that support the immune system, and creating a Nourishing Lifestyle Plan™ that helps you heal faster and reduce future sensitivities.
I know from personal experience how hard it is to hear that you can’t eat a favorite food. The good news is that it is usually only a short-term issue and you will feel so much better afterward. In fact, clients often find they develop new favorite foods while they are healing!
Many practitioners offer the test, go over the results and send you on your way with a couple of follow-up visits.You are left to figure out how to substitute your own foods (when cooking, flavoring can become difficult). We often crave the foods we are sensitive to, as well. I’ll help you every step of the way, giving you lots of recommendations and assistance when you need it.
My allergies are gone! So is my post-nasal drip. I got a lot out of our time together…so much more than just the physical benefits that I hoped for. Thank you so much!
