Food Sensitivity Testing at Garibaldi Health Clinic!


What is food sensitivity testing?

Food sensitivity testing is a valuable tool for identifying specific foods that may be triggering unwanted symptoms in your body. Unlike food allergies, food sensitivities can be more challenging to pinpoint, often causing delayed reactions that may go unnoticed for hours or even days.


When is the test ordered?

Dr. Gordon may order a food sensitivity test if you have a history of:

  • Digestive disorders
  • Migraines or headaches
  • Mood/Attention Deficit Disorders
  • Weight Gain
  • Skin conditions including dermatitis, psoriasis and hives
  • Low immunity
  • Fatigue
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Brain fog
  • Joint pain

Symptoms associated with food sensitivities develop slowly over time and can create inflammation and contribute to symptoms of a variety of health conditions and diseases overtime in the body. The key is to uncover the root cause of these symptoms and discovering food intolerances via testing can be instrumental in guiding the treatment process.


Sensitivity vs Allergy

On exposure to certain foods, your immune system can react by releasing proteins called antibodies. Foods that cause antibodies to be released are called antigens or allergens. Two types of antibodies are commonly produced in response to foods: IgE (immunoglobulin E) and IgG (immunoglobulin G). A food allergy is an immediate reaction caused by the production of IgE antibodies, while a food sensitivity is a delayed reaction caused by the production of IgG antibodies to specific foods.
