Could something that you are eating everyday be making you feel tired, bloated, achy, gi distress, skin issues or frequent headaches? These are just a few of the symptoms that a food sensitivity can cause. We talk about food being our medicine but some foods even so called “healthy” foods can have a negative reaction in our body causing the body to go through unneeded stress and inflammation. A food sensitivity test can tell you which foods may be causing an inflammatory response in your body.
What is the difference between a food allergy and food sensitivity? A food allergy may occur immediately upon ingesting the food or for up to 8 hours after. This is a very severe reaction and can be life threatening. Symptoms may be hives, wheezing, trouble swallowing or even anaphylaxis. Food sensitivity is a less severe reaction and can take up to 72 hours to show symptoms. This is why it is so hard to pinpoint what food may be causing the issue. Food sensitivities are not life threatening but can cause thousands of different symptoms.
If you are wondering if a food sensitivity could be the cause of your underlying issue come get tested today. Food sensitivity testing can take the guess work out of what foods your body likes and doesn’t like. A simple blood test can determine what foods you may be sensitive to. At Odom Health and Wellness we offer food sensitivity panels of either 96 or 184 food panels. When the results are in our registered dietitian Bobbi Horner will sit down with you and interpret the findings.
