Food Sensitivity Testing Q & A

What is a food sensitivity?

Many people assume food sensitivities and allergies are the same. However, a food allergy causes immediate and potentially dangerous symptoms while a food sensitivity causes milder symptoms that usually develop later in the digestive process.

There are several proteins, nutrients, and preservatives that can trigger food sensitivities, and every patient responds differently to their food sensitivity. The team at PURE Executive Health & Wellness offers comprehensive micronutrient food sensitivity testing to identify the precise foods, ingredients, or micronutrients that trigger your symptoms.  

What are the signs of food sensitivity?

Food sensitivities and intolerances cause a variety of adverse symptoms, such as headaches, bloating, fatigue, and weight gain. Food sensitivity can also cause complex health issues, such as gastrointestinal or metabolic disorders.

What is food sensitivity testing?

The team at PURE Executive Health & Wellness uses the Alcat Test, which measures your immune cells’ response to more than 450 foods, herbs, molds, medications, as well as chemicals. It can also uncover which foods and other substances trigger chronic inflammation in the body.

Traditional lab work doesn’t accurately measure your levels of many common vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, or amino acids. With the Micronutrient Evaluation, the PURE team can test for more than 35 micronutrients at the immune cell level. This process involves a simple, yet sophisticated blood test.

The team provides testing that allows them to customize a lifestyle program that is appropriate and optimal for you as an individual.

What happens if I have a food sensitivity?

The team at PURE Executive Health & Wellness offers an array of nutritional science services, including a personalized lifestyle program that not only helps you look great but feel great. Your doctor recommends dietary adjustments to avoid the micronutrients that trigger your sensitivities while also ensuring you get all the vitamins and nutrients you need for optimal function and wellness.
