Test Your Food Sensitivity

Food sensitivity testing at Cornerstone Wellness Center can identify food intolerance is how the body reacts to digesting certain foods or types of foods. Every person digests food differently. When there is a food sensitivity, this means that there is a lack of enzymes to digest certain foods. Classic examples of this are Celiac’s Disease and Lactose Intolerance. It is a common misconception that people with these two diseases are the only ones with food intolerances. In fact, everyone has some degree of a food intolerance it may just be so minor that you might not notice it as much as more severe cases.

Food sensitivity often leads to improper food digestion, which in turn leads to food particles that putrefy in the GI tract and cause toxicity and inflammation. That is why food sensitivity testing is so valuable; once you find your intolerances you start feeling better!

Partially digested materials are deemed as foreign to the body and your blood, this is when an immune response ensues. If this becomes a reoccurring thing, it could affect your overall normal functioning of the body, and can, in turn, lead to a chronic disease.

Food intolerance can be determined by a simple blood test.  This method of testing identifies foods which are not well digested or metabolized in a particular body.

Symptoms of Food Intolerance

  • Constipation

The body may or may not “react” immediately to the intolerant foods when eaten.  The reactions you may experience can vary from sneezing, coughing, mild itching, to less noticeable chronic reactions. Always be aware of what is going with your body and how it is reacting to the foods you are eating.
