ABOUT FOOD SENSITIVITIES
Food is our source of physical nutrition and an important component of our well-being. Sometimes, our immune system rejects certain foods by releasing antibodies; foods that cause this reaction are called “antigens.” We commonly see IgE (immediate anaphylactic reaction) and IgG (delayed response allergy) antibodies causing full allergic reactions or more subtle food sensitivities, respectively.
HOW DO FOOD ALLERGIES HAPPEN?
Some food allergies, stress, drugs, or alcohol cause the gut lining to become inflamed, which then causes food particles to leak through into the abdominal cavity. Your body perceives the food particles as invaders in the abdomen and produces immunoglobulins to attack them, resulting in uncomfortable or painful sensations. non corem volute volor modi omnis dolliti osandisimus.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY?
We can test your food reactions in our facilities with a simple finger prick. After about 2-3 weeks, results from this test will help us determine which foods may be problematic for you. Together, we will review your IgG graph and interpret results to better understand which reactive foods may be causing dietary concerns.
