Food Allergies and Sensitivities
High-quality blood testing is used to evaluate potential food allergies & sensitivities. Testing can give clues to the health of your gut and the specific foods that might be irritating to your body. Gluten, wheat, yeast, dairy, and eggs are a few of the most common food allergens, but we are all different. This testing will often uncover the cause of many different symptoms including fatigue, acne, constipation, rashes, itching, allergies, congestion, joint pain, etc. Then you will learn how to remove the necessary allergens and include healthier options.
Improving your diet and nutrition levels can treat elevated cholesterol or blood pressure, insulin resistance, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, IBS, and more. Clinical nutrition is an alternative medicine that can prevent the need for medications.
