A tremendous amount of health problems have been linked to food intolerance and chronic inflammation – common everyday problems like migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, eczema, hyperactivity/ADD, asthma and even obesity.
Food intolerance has been defined as reproducible adverse reaction to specific food or to any of its components. Among the most common products that cause intolerance reaction are milk, peanuts, eggs, fish, shellfish and wheat.
This food intolerance test designed to detect the individual’s sensitivities or intolerances on foods, chemicals and molds. It measures delayed reaction over the course of several hours after exposure, as well as the changes in size/volume of WBC.
You will be shipped a collection kit and a mobile collector will contact you to set up a date and time for the collection.

- What is food intolerance?
According to the American College of Gastroenterology, when ingestion of a particular food or food additive causes unpleasant symptoms, a person is said to be intolerant to that food or additive. Symptoms occur as a result of either poor absorption from the intestine into the bloodstream or less commonly by the release of chemicals within the body occurring as a result of contact of the food/additive with the body.
- What are the signs and symptoms of food intolerance?
The common symptoms of food intolerance are:
- Abdominal pain
The less common symptoms of food intolerance include:
- Fluid retention
- Inflamed sinuses/eyes/nose
- Vocal cord swelling
- What is the difference between food allergy and food intolerance?
Food allergy and food intolerance are both types of ‘food sensitivity’. The main differences between them are the length of time it takes for symptoms to appear and the type of symptoms involved. When someone has a food allergy, their immune system reacts to a particular food as if it isn’t safe. This causes immediate symptoms, such as itchiness, rash and swelling.
Food intolerance doesn’t involve the immune system. Some reactions are caused by an inability to digest a particular food. Usually symptoms are not immediate, but there are some preservatives and flavor enhancers that can cause flushing or wheezing in people with asthma soon after eating them.
- How is food intolerance detected?
Because the symptoms of food intolerance are not immediate – usually appearing one or two days after eating the offending food – they are much harder to diagnose. Among the available food sensitivity testing kits nowadays include blood test, skin test, and elimination diets. Comprehensive wellness tests that can check up to 100 commonly eaten foods can be helpful in identifying the food culprits you diet.
- What are the common food triggers of food intolerance?
Some food offenders can be difficult to identify because the food "trigger" may be found in a wide variety of products. Among them are:
- Artificial additives (MSG and food coloring)
- Artificial sweeteners
- Citrus (mostly oranges)
- Coffee and caffeine
- Corn and corn derivatives
- Dairy products
- Wheat and refined flour
- Are there treatments for food intolerance and food allergy?
The goal of treatment for food intolerance and food allergy is to avoid or reduce your intake of food “triggers” and treat symptoms when they arise. Treatment at the time of a reaction varies according to the severity and type of symptoms. Mild symptoms may go away without treatment. Doctors generally recommend over the counter or prescription antihistamines to relieve mild itching, swelling, rash, runny nose, or headache. Soothing skin creams may provide some relief of rashes. Avoiding the offending food is the best way to prevent future allergic reactions. Please talk to your health care provider about possible treatments for food intolerance and food allergy.
