Food Sensitivity

Having a food sensitivity or intolerance induces a chronic activation of the innate immune system and gives rise to inflammatory processes.  This includes the excess production of reactive oxygen species and the release of pre-formed and newly synthesized mediators of inflammation.

 

This inflammation has been lined to many chronic conditions, including:

  • chronic fatigue
  • weight gain & obesity
  • attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • eczema, acne & other skin conditions
  • migraine headaches
  • asthma & other respiratory problems
  • irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) & other digestive disorders
  • arthritis & aching joints
  • fibromyalgia

 

Rocky Mountain Analytical and ALCAT both provide several types of food sensitivity tests − depending on your needs.  A simple blood draw is taken in the office and sent out to the laboratory for testing.  The test results take two to four weeks to return − depending on the test that you select.  Once the results are obtained, Dr. Moira will create a rotational diet based on your food sensitivity results to help minimize the symptoms that you experience and achieve optimal health.
