Food Allergy Testing
The Food Allergy Test gives healthcare professionals as well as the patient a tool for managing conditions linked to inflammation and many other health problems or even learning disabilities. The tests measures an individual’s response to foods and other substances that may reveal the underlying trigger of certain symptoms you are experiencing.
Food and chemical sensitivities have been linked to migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, and other symptoms related to chronic activation of the immune system. The efficacy of food allergy testing has been documented in numerous studies implementing rigorous double blind and often placebo controlled study designs. Eliminating certain foods (or substances) that your body does not have a positive response to can be life altering. Foods that are good for one person can be poison for another person. Testing your compatibility to the food/substance items in these food sensitivity tests can really change a person's life as well as alter any future or current health problems.
