Service Description

What is Food Sensitivity? Food sensitivity results when your body reacts negatively to particular foods. Often the foods we eat regularly or the foods we crave are the ones causing us problems! Research has shown that food sensitivity can be linked to IgG antibodies produced when these problematic foods are eaten. Normally these antibodies do not have any ill-effects, but if the immune or digestive system are not functioning optimally, their presence may provoke a wide array of symptoms. Symptoms of Food Intolerances: • Bloating • Constipation • Diarrhoea • Flatulence • Headaches / migraines • Irritable bowel syndrome • Lethargy • Nausea / vomiting • Stomach cramps / abdominal pain Why Test for IgG Food Antibodies and Food Sensitivity? As it can take up to 72 hours to notice symptoms triggered by food sensitivities, culprit foods can be hard to detect using elimination diets. A food sensitivity test is therefore a helpful tool to remove the guesswork. Testing IgG responses to specific foods may help to identify problematic foods, which can then be removed or rotated in the diet for a prescribed period resulting in a reduction of symptoms. The test works by measuring blood levels of IgG antibodies. IgG antibody formation is triggered in response to contact with specific food proteins (antigens) to which they bind and together form an immune complex. These complexes may be deposited in tissues and when formed in excess and faster than the immune system’s ability to remove them efficiently, inflammation and the development of associated symptoms may be triggered.
