Food Sensitivity Testing
Food sensitivities are adverse health reactions that can be can be caused by food, food additives or other substances in your food. These reactions can play a major role in common health conditions including, migraines, digestive problems, joint and muscle pain, sinus and skin disorders.
Identifying reactive foods can be difficult. It is important to note that any food or food chemical can be reactive-- even foods that are considered healthy, may be reactive for some people. Sometimes a reactive food, such as milk, can be easy to identify. Other times however, the reactive substance may be a food chemical, such as salicylates, and it is anything but easy to determine. In addition, symptoms can present anywhere from 4 to even 96 hours after a food or chemical is ingested. Symptoms usually involve more than one food or food chemical, and may also be dose dependent. This means, unless we eat enough of the food or food chemical to immediately trigger a reaction, we may not feel the effects of a reaction until hours or days after we have eaten the food. For these reasons, dealing with food sensitivities on your own can be very difficult.
