Food Inflammation Testing
Do you have bloating, stomach pain, fatigue, joint pain, migraines, eczema, sugar cravings, or trouble losing weight? Maybe it’s what you’re eating. Food sensitivity can cause inflammation throughout your body leading to these or other health conditions over time. About 70% of your immune system is located in your gut so it’s easy to see that there is a strong connection between your gut and your overall health. When you ingest something you are sensitive to your immune system jumps into action to help eliminate the intruder. But when we constantly expose our intestines to foods that we are sensitive to it causes a lot of inflammation. This can also lead to leaky gut syndrome if it is not addressed.
It may be difficult to pinpoint exactly what foods are causing you all this discomfort because food sensitivities can be delayed. Symptoms can occur anywhere from a couple hours after ingestion up to a few days after consumption. Starting an elimination diet without much guidance can be challenging. That is why we offer FIT tests (food inflammation test) which measure your sensitivity in different foods, additives, and even candida. With just a simple finger stick you can get the results you need to get your gut feeling better. The test measures the severity of IgG and complement reactions which is your immune response to the various foods and additives. You also get a free 30 minute wellness consultation with a clinical pharmacist to go over your results, talk about other similar foods you may need to avoid, and supplementation to help heal your gut and get you back on track.
Symptoms of food sensitivity include: irritable bowel syndrome, joint pain, chronic headaches, migraines, fatigue, eczema, and psoriasis to name a few. These symptoms generally occur days after the food is ingested which makes the offending food hard to identify without proper testing. Test, Don't Guess! The FIT test is a patented multi pathway delayed food sensitivity test. This new technology measures both IgG and Immune Complexes, the most common food-related pathways in the body. The test comes with a free wellness consultation with our clinical pharmacist. Available for ages 2 years and up!
We offer two options, the FIT 132 and the FIT 22. For more information you can call and speak with one of our pharmacists or send us an e-mail.
