FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING
Food intolerance happens when one can’t digest a certain type of food, which then remains in their digestive tract and putrefies, leading to inflammation and toxicity. Partially digested materials from these foods trigger the immune response because the body recognizes these particles as potentially dangerous. This is why it’s important to do food sensitivity testing.
Sometimes, chronic diseases can occur, when these foods are ingested over a long period of time.
However, not every food intolerance is a food sensitivity. When the body responds to a certain food particle with symptoms of food sensitivity such as rash or swelling, then you should stay away from that ingredient. For example, you may be intolerant to lactose and dairy products, which will cause you stomach pain, diarrhea, and flatulence, but if you’re allergic to peanuts, you may suffer a serious reaction where medical intervention is needed.
Luckily, you can easily find out whether you are intolerant or allergic to some foods by a simple blood test. Food sensitivity testing identifies if there are any particular foods that are not well digested or metabolized. These foods you are allergic to can cause maldigestion, intestinal toxemia or/and irritation to body tissues, especially the lining of your gastrointestinal tract.
Food intolerance leads to different symptoms, such as headaches, diarrhea, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, eczema, and/or anxiety.
However, not all of these symptoms appear immediately. Some may be mild at first, but over time they get worse, especially if there’s a continued ingestion of the foods you are intolerant to. That’s why it’s important to make sure to leave them out of your diet or reduce your intake to a bare minimum. Your immune system is heavily weighed by the materials from this food when digested, leaving toxic residues in your gastrointestinal tract, that may lead to chronic disease. Remember, you are what you eat, just be careful not to overdo it. Find out everything about your food intake with our food allergy testing.
