Food Allergy Testing

I'm happy to now be offering a new method of food allergy testing, called EAV testing. Food sensitivities or intolerances are substances that are stressful or irritating to your system. Sensitivities can affect any organ system of the body. They may cause low energy, digestive complaints, anxiety, depression, itchy skin, breathing problems and much more. The identification and removal of food sensitivities can augment other treatments and is a cornerstone of naturopathic medical philosophy.

Most people are familiar with food allergy testing (skin prick testing) which elicits the body's immediate immune response to certain substances; however, determining food intolerances or sensitivities has historically been done by elimination and reintroduction diets. This method can be time-consuming, impractical and involve too much guesswork. The alternative is to have an evaluation that is specific to your system to help determine which foods may be an issue for you.

This method of food testing is gentle, non-invasive and the results are immediate.
