What is food sensitivity testing?

Food sensitivity testing is a highly accurate blood test that can identify which foods cause a negative reaction in your body.

Some foods can trigger an inflammatory response because your body mistakenly identifies them as dangerous invaders. Even healthy foods can cause inflammation that leads to persistent:

  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Acid reflux
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Stomach cramps and pain
  • Skin rashes and hives

If left untreated, chronic inflammation can increase your risk for ongoing health complications and disease.

By identifying what’s triggering your symptoms, you can learn how to make diet changes to prevent inflammation-related side effects and lifelong illnesses.

How does food sensitivity testing work?

The food sensitivity testing Nancy Feiwel, MD utilizes is a highly accurate blood test. Dr. Feiwel will take a full medical history, including food history, and use that information along with blood test results to identify food sensitivities, allergies, food intolerances, and chemical sensitivities.

 The information obtained is invaluable to your health. Because you can be sensitive or intolerant to any type of food or specific chemical in food, testing is essential to pinpoint exactly what contributes to your symptoms.

By understanding what triggers inflammation in your digestive tract and your body as a whole, Dr. Feiwel can jumpstart your natural healing processes so that you can get your life back.

How do I manage food sensitivities after testing?

Using the results of your blood test, Dr. Feiwel creates a customized eating plan, incorporating holistic therapies to improve your gut health and minimize your exposure to foods and chemicals that produce an inflammatory response in your body.

Dr. Feiwel also takes other factors into consideration, including your medical history and dietary preferences, to create a personalized diet to prevent inflammation. She focuses on holistic strategies that support your digestive health and your overall wellness.

As part of your treatment plan for food sensitivities, Dr. Feiwel may also recommend:

  • Daily exercises
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Improved sleep habits
  • Stress management techniques

In addition to relieving existing inflammation and preventing additional inflammatory responses in your body, your holistic treatment plan can also support safe and effective weight loss.
