Food Allergy Lab Testing

Dr. Samantha Ristimaki, BSc, ND (Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine)

samanthaFood intolerances have been recognized to have implications in many chronic and acute disease conditions. When the body does not tolerate a specific food, immune complexes called IgG’s are formed. If the body can’t get rid of them, the body deposits them at various sites around the body which can then become sources of irritate or inflammation. This IgG response has been linked to either causing and/or provoking over 100 allergic symptoms.

A growing number of patients are reporting improvements to their health by simple elimination of certain foods that are found to be intolerant. A simple IgG antibody detection blood test provides a scientific, simple and rapid test that will identify which foods ought to be eliminated. The results are reliable and reproducible in the identification of 93 specific foods.

Before this test was available, controlled elimination diets were primarily used to diagnose the intolerance. Despite their benefits, they are extremely time consuming for the patient and practitioner and also require a high degree of patient motivation and compliance. The IgG blood is far more accurate in determining specific food intolerances. It saves valuable time so that the patient can work towards feeling better sooner.

Ask about how we can help you identify and treat your potential food intolerances.
