Diagnose your Food Sensitivity with a Food Sensitivity Test!

Healthy FoodDo you periodically feel tired or moody? Do you often experience headaches, gas, bloating, or constipation? If something “feels off,” it could be caused by a food sensitivity. This condition often goes unnoticed but can dramatically affect the quality of life of the people that experience it. If you’ve found yourself experiencing changes in energy, mood, and overall health, you might want to undergo a food sensitivity test. This test can help rule out or confirm food as the source of your discomfort.

What are Food Sensitivities?

At least 100 million people in the world today are affected by food sensitivities. Contrary to popular belief, food sensitivities and food allergies are not the same things. While food allergies elicit a severe overreaction of the immune system that is quickly noticeable, food sensitivities trigger less severe reactions that usually manifest themselves slowly over time.

Symptoms of food sensitivities include:

  • Acne
  • Brain fog
  • Fatigue
  • Food cravings
  • Gas, bloating, and constipation
  • Headaches
  • Heartburn
  • Joint pain
  • Moodiness

Because the symptoms of food sensitivities are usually subtle and easy to attribute to other factors, they conditions can often go unnoticed and unaddressed. These conditions can be caused by a variety of factors, including eating the same foods repeatedly and consuming foods with pesticides, additives, or food coloring.

How Can Food Sensitivity Testing Benefit You?

At Benessere we administer a high-quality food sensitivity test to our patients. This test can help our physicians identify foods that each patient is particularly sensitive to. In addition to identifying these foods, food sensitivity tests are useful because they can provide an explanation for strange symptoms, either confirming or ruling out diet as a cause. Vibrant Lab food sensitivity tests include a phone consultation with a dietician.  After making guided dietary adjustments, many patients feel more energized, alert, and in overall better moods.
