IgG Food Sensitivity Testing

Food sensitivities are abnormal immune reactions to certain foods, generally affecting the gut. In contrast, food allergies can cause a multitude of body responses including severe, life threatening, allergic reactions, such as anaphylaxis. IgG food sensitivity testing is not the same as IgE or IgA food allergy testing. IgG can be helpful in uncovered "hidden" food sensitivities which are not life threatening, but may cause chronic concerns.
 
IgG Food Panels are available for either 24 or 88 foods (see specific foods below). Both panels are able to identify the severity of the sensitivity, and extent to which those foods may be involved in the development of gut inflammation. Test results are helpful determining the possible source of enzyme deficiencies and whether they are coming from the stomach, pancreas and/or biliary system.

Whenever possible, I reccomend testing for gut permeability and inflammation, alongside food sensitivities to uncover a clearer picture of your gut health. This will allow us to effectively create a gut healing plan personalized to your needs. 

How it Works

Before your appointment, you will be provided with a test kit and required to collect a small sample of your own blood (easy and painless). The test kit is sent to the lab and once the results are received, we will review them during a 60-minute consultation.
