Is Your Food Making You Sick?
Are you suffering from a stubborn health problem that won’t go away no matter what you try? Or perhaps the medications and treatments you’re taking aren’t actually getting at the root cause of your illness, but you want something that will. If you feel this way, or know someone who does, consider some important facts:
- Medical Research has shown that sensitivities to foods and food chemicals can be involved in a wide array of painful symptoms and chronic health problems.
- If foods and additives in your diet are causing your illness, whatever medications you take will ultimately fail because they only mask the symptoms. They don’t treat the underlying cause of the symptoms. And many medications have side effects that can lead to other health problems.
- If food sensitivities are causing your illness and you don’t properly address them, you could easily end up suffering for many years, spending thousands of dollars for treatments that will never work the way you want or need them too.

An All-To-Common Problem
Millions of Americans suffer from food sensitivities. Conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, migraine and other headaches, weight imbalances, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, skin eruptions, brain fog and many other uncomfortable lingering health problems are often directly related to specific immune reactions to the foods we eat. Even so called “healthy” foods such as salmon, chicken, apples, or garlic can provoke symptoms in sensitive individuals.

The Gold Standard for Food Sensitivity Testing and Anti-Inflammatory Eating
The first thing a food sensitivity sufferer needs to do is identify their trigger foods and food chemicals. In the past, this has been easier said than done for many reasons: Food sensitivity reactions may be delayed by hours or even days after ingestion. Even if you suspect food sensitivities, would you consider that the headache you have right now was caused by something you ate yesterday? And often, food sensitivities are dose-related. This means a small or moderate amount of a reactive food may not cause any noticeable symptoms, but a larger amount does. Or perhaps when you eat 2-3 moderately reactive foods at the same time, you get symptoms. But if you ate only 1 of those foods you wouldn’t. If that wasn’t enough of a challenge, reactive foods vary widely from person to person, even if they have the same symptoms, and there are usually many reactive foods and food chemicals, not just one or two.
In addition, the most common blood test used to help identify sensitive foods (ELISA IgG) can only detect one lesser kind of sensitivity reaction (Type 3, which covers only about 25% of food sensitivity reactions). Plus, IgG testing can’t identify reactions to food-chemicals.
