Food Sensitivity Testing

Many people under the impression that they are suffering from food allergies are merely experiencing food sensitivity. Sensitivity usually results from an abnormal response by the body to a food component, which releases immunoglobulins that can cause irritation. Food Sensitivity Testing identifies which substances cause adverse reactions by the body, allowing patients to make proper diet choices. The information these tests provide can serve as the starting point for significant, beneficial lifestyle modifications.

While physical medicine including Chiropractic and Physical Therapy are the core components of our practice, Food Sensitivity Testing resonates with our holistic approach. This allows our healthcare providers to optimize patients’ wellness to a higher degree. 

About Food Sensitivity Testing

Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine offers multiple Food Sensitivity Testing options. All tests scan for sensitivities to the most common fruits, vegetables, nuts and meats. Many people are unaware they have sensitivities to these basic food components. This is because symptoms of food sensitivity are sometimes delayed and can take up to 72 hours to appear. For patients looking to delve even deeper, we also offer more comprehensive options. 

Food Sensitivity Testing merely requires a blood sample from the patient. While some patients elect for a standard blood draw, we also offer a finger prick option for those who dislike needles. We will then send the sample off to our laboratory for analysis and results are usually available within 10 business days. We will promptly reach out when the results are ready and schedule an appointment for you to review them with our medical provider. The results provide scientific explanations of the patient’s food sensitivity, which translate into potentially beneficial diet, supplement lifestyle changes.
