Setting aside the old adage that fruits and vegetables are good for you, I have come to understand that “one diet does not fit all”. Why is this? This could be due to genetic variances among individuals, different states of health, age, activity level or different immune system responses.
What do I mean by immune system responses? In simple terms, when you eat food, your immune system recognizing food particles as “good” or “bad”, which translates to “easily digested and absorbed” or “poorly digested and absorbed”. When a food reaction occurs in the body, a.k.a food sensitivity, these reactions are characterized by the production of IgG antibodies. These antibodies form antigen-antibody complexes that deposit in tissues and leads to chronic inflammation. They are responsible for the ‘delayed-onset’ of symptoms, which can occur several hours or days after foods are ingested, hence making the foods difficult to detect.
Symptoms may include:
- irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- high blood pressure
- joint pain
- runny nose
- weight problems
IgG Food Intolerance Blood Test
If you experience any of the above symptoms, you are a candidate for this test. The IgG Food Intolerance Test can accurately determine which foods (200+) or ingredients may be causing your symptoms. With removal of the offending foods, which are outlined in your test results, your body can heal, find balance and good health.
Here is what my patients are saying after taking the test and implementing the results.
This test gave me a piece of mind. I had bloating and constipation for many years and couldn’t narrow down which foods were the problem. After seeing my test results, it was clear what I needed to avoid and my symptoms went away. I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner. Thanks Dr. Jen!
I lost 20 lbs avoiding the foods that my body did not agree with. I no longer had bloating and felt pregnant. I am now eating cleaner and have more knowledge about food and ingredients since doing the test.
I suffered with IBS for many years and was prescribed laxatives and antispasmodics by my G.P. I still felt unwell and something was telling me to do a Food Sensitivity Test. I saw Dr. Jen and after completing the test and getting my results, I realized that two foods I were eating were creating so much inflammation in my body. Since then I removed the foods and have better digestion and appetite control.
Knowing my sensitivities was something I was curious about. I was afraid that gluten would come up, but it didn’t. When I removed dairy, which was a sensitivity for me, my allergy symptoms resolved and I no longer have to keep a box of Kleenex by my side.
I had eczema on my elbows for many years and cortisone cream would work modestly at best. I did the test with Dr. Jen and started seeing results within 2 weeks of avoiding my sensitivities. The eczema on my elbows has almost completely cleared without steroid cream. I am happy with the results.
Hope this helps,
