Benefits of Food Intolerance testing
■ IgG testing determines if food reactions are contributing to physical or mental symptoms, and much more quickly
than eliminating and then reintroducing each suspect food one-by-one over a period of time.
■ Removal of highly reactive foods from the diet is a non-invasive therapy that often mitigates a patient’s symptoms.
■ Research and clinical studies suggest food allergies identified by IgG testing can be major contributing factors to
many chronic health conditions.
■ Eliminating all identified IgG-positive foods after testing can reduce stress on the immune system, decrease
inflammation (helping to heal “leaky gut”), resolve food cravings, and reduce the potential for eating disorders
I find this test to be useful information for eliminating foods in the short term and then gradually reintroducing them, but it is also helpful to know how and why these intolerances arose. I commonly find it to be due to leaky gut syndrome and would therefore recommend a GI Effects Comprehensive Stool Analysis to be run alongside it so that we can get to the root cause of the intolerance.
