Food Allergy Testing
Are you tired of suffering from disruptive, painful, chronic illnesses like IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), fibromyalgia or autoimmune disorders? Have you been given prescription after prescription but you don’t really feel any better? Are you starting to think that maybe more medicine isn’t the answer? If you are, we think you’re right and we know that we can help alleviate disruptive problems with your body not by prescribing more medication, but by making changes to what you put in your body in the first place.
That’s why we offer the Food Inflammation Test with the goal of removing harmful foods from your diet in order to help you achieve true wellness. You see, the same foods don’t necessarily work for everyone. Different foods, colorings and additives can have separate effects on people and sometimes those effects can be detrimental to your health. These problems can be caused by a variety of reasons, including:
- Allergic reactions: You might be allergic to foods you’ve been eating your whole life. Sometimes allergic reactions are developed later in life the reaction is so subtle that you don’t notice it. However, food allergies can cause serious problems in your body and can often be miss-diagnosed as another disease.
- Leaky Gut Syndrome: This develops when the bowel lining or gut wall is damaged and there is underlying inflammatory process due to foods your sensitive to. The damaged linings becomes leaky so that toxins get into the body this causes a huge variety of health problems.
- Other Food Intolerance Conditions: Some negative reactions to foods are not actually allergies, even though they can present as if they are. Conditions like Celiac disease and lactose intolerance result from the body not reacting correctly to particular foods. The body can simply be intolerant of some foods or additives and while an allergic reaction is not technically produced, the intolerance can cause severe and damaging effects for you.
Our test is designed to determine these specific sensitivities and give you a personalized food report which you can use to work with our nutritional experts in order to create a diet plan which works best for your body. We will test you for 132 different foods, additives and colorings in order to determine which elements need to be eliminated to put you on a pathway to lasting wellness and happiness.
Thomas Edison famously said: “The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” It seems we, as a society, have not yet reached “the future” as many doctors today are still keen to prescribe and over-prescribe medications to manage diseases—rather than looking for the root cause of disease in the body. At My AntiAging MD, we are a little more forward-thinking and we tend to agree with Thomas Edison. Not only do we seek to educate you about your body, but we know that in many cases the diet is the cause of disease and fixing the diet for good can be a powerful preventative measure.
