Food Sensitivity Testing
What Is It?
The Food Sensitivity Test determines which foods, of the 120 or 200+ foods tested, are causing an immune-response. This immune response can occur immediately after we eat, or may take several hours to days to display. Some types of symptoms that can occur from these foods we are sensitive to are: bloating or IBS-type symptoms, headaches/migraines, fatigue, skin-related issues like eczema, inflammatory conditions like joint pain/arthritis, weight problems, and more.
How Do IgG-mediated Food Sensitivities Work?
The Food Sensitivity Tests determines IgG-mediated food sensitivities (i.e., type III hypersensitivity). This means that when a food is a consumed the IgG antibodies will attach themselves to the food antigen and create an antibody-antigen complex. These complexes are most often destroyed by cells in our body, called macrophages, but if the complexes are recurring or are present in large numbers (often when certain reactive foods are over- or consistently consumed), the antibody-antigen complexes accumulate in the body, causing inflammation and other conditions noted above.
If you’ve long-suffered from digestive concerns, skin ailments, or other inflammatory conditions like arthritis, determining your food sensitivities is your next step to your health journey.

Does Food Sensitivity (IgG) Testing Test For Lactose Intolerance?
No, IgG-antibodies test only for sensitivities and not intolerances. Lactose intolerance is caused by a deficiency in the lactase enzyme; this is not an immune response.
Does Food Sensitivity (IgG) Testing Test For Food Allergies?
No. Food allergies are an IgE reaction and must be tested for separately.
