    Food Sensitivities

    Food sensitivities are delayed reactions to specific foods that are triggered by IgG antibodies. There is a growing body of evidence to support the clinical benefits of eliminating IgG reactive foods from the diet. IgG food sensitivities have been implicated in migraine headaches and irritable bowel syndrome. Bloating and indigestion are also common food sensitivity reactions. Continued consumption of reactive foods may contribute to mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, and hyperactivity. Food sensitivities lead to inflammation and may contribute to weight gain or difficulty losing weight as well as fatigue. Eczema is also commonly associated with food reactions. Because IgG food reactions take hours or days to develop, it makes it difficult to determine which food are causing your symptoms. This is where testing can be helpful. Naturopathic physicians at Living Wellness frequently perform a simple in-office finger prick test which measures IgG levels against 120+ different foods.

    E-card

    We must pay greater attention to keeping our bodies and minds healthy and able to heal. Yet we are making it difficult for our defences to work. We allow things to be sold that should not be called food. Many have no nutritive value and lead to obesity, salt imbalance, and allergies.

    David Suzuki

    The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore, the physician must start from nature with an open mind.
