We all want to be healthier, and an often overlooked part of that is understanding our bodies individually. Some of us don’t respond well to specific diets, and we should tailor our eating habits to what our body is telling us, rather than the other way around. A prime example of this is food sensitivities. Some outdated sources even doubt the existence of food sensitivities. Which is why proper education on this underrated nutritional problem is a must.
What is a Food Sensitivity?
Food intolerance or food sensitivity is where your body struggles to properly digest a specific food ingredient that most people have no problem with. A few common intolerances include wheat, gluten, and dairy. To most people, these foods are relatively harmless, but to those intolerant, they can be a nightmare.
Reactions can range from mild to severe and may vary depending on the amount of the problem food consumed. As well as how bad the sensitivity is.
Food sensitivity testing can be performed on either a blood or hair sample. If a hair sample is the chosen method, I must include the root of the hair. These samples are then tested in lab, against various problem foods for a reaction. You’ll then receive results explaining the responses and identifying any intolerances.
Your sample can be tested against various items, both edibles and non-food items such as metals and tree bark or pollens.
Why have a food sensitivity test?
You deserve to live your best life, with a healthy and happy body, free from frustration and aimless avoidance. Having a food sensitivity test gives you the power of better nutrition, coupled with a worry-free experience when trying new meals or eating at a new restaurant.
Look after your body and it’ll look after you. A food sensitivity test will show you how, and this will mean a better, stronger, and healthier life. Putting an end your food-related woes.
