This simple blood test is able measure your immediate and delayed reactions to 220 different foods types, herbs and spices. Using immunoglobulins, this test is able to see if you have a particular intolerance to certain food types by their reactions in your blood sample.
Immediate reactions (IGE) to food intolerancs are fairly obvious as they occur soon after eating the problematic food however,
Delayed reactions (IGG) are much harder to pinpoint as reactions can occur up to three days after consumption. This is where the blood test can come in handy.
Reactions to food intolerances can appear in many different forms, some not even related to the digestive system! Some examples different types are:
Gastrointestinal: distension, bloating, gas, cramping, colic, IBS, diarrhea
Respiratory allergic reactions: rhinitis, nasal congestion, sinusitis
Dermal: Skin rashes, eczema, angioedema
Central Nervous System: mood swings, behavioral changes, learning difficulties
Neurovascular: migraines, Meniere’s disease (vertigo)
Musculoskelatal: weakness, feeling “below par”, arthralgia, myalgia
Without testing, you could be experiencing reactions to food intolerances without ever knowing it.
Discovering food intolerances is not an easy thing to accomplish; most allergy testing fails to identify foods that are aggravating (as they induce a different bodily reaction than allergens do) and while food elimination diets do offer a chance to discover food intolerances, they’re extremely restrictive and long-lasting.
We use this test because the reactions to food intolerances are especially important to limit for thyroid patients (who already have system troubles and often deal with nutrient deficiences and digestive issues) and because the speed and accuracy of this test is unparalleled,
