Before You Invest in Food Sensitivity Testing (What You Need To Know)
Listen now
Before you buy food sensitivity testing, you need to hear this because so many people are harmed by these tests. For one thing, food sensitivity testing is touted as a miracle, cure-all answer for skin rashes. So when you take the test, cut out the foods, and your rash is still flaring up — it can leave you feeling really lost and even hopeless that things will ever change. AND for many, food sensitivity tests trigger food fear that drives unnecessary diet restrictions that do more harm than good negatively impacting not just your physical health, but also your mental well-being. That’s not a great place to be. And then there’s the fact that these tests are expensive. So, if you fork out the money for one of these food sensitivity tests, and you don’t see the results you were hoping for, now you’re out of hope and you’re out a serious bit of money too which could have been better spent on other tests which are more helpful. Especially since food sensitivity testing CAN’T identify root cause problems triggering skin rashes or flare-ups. That’s why today, we’re diving into food sensitivity, what results mean for your rash, and asking the big question, “Does food sensitivity testing work?” And because it’s so common to have low stomach acid when you struggle with skin rashes – especially if you suspect that your rash is triggered by the foods you eat — be sure to try my completely free DIY Low Stomach Acid Test before you do anything else.

How to reintroduce a food after an elimination diet What I recommend instead of food sensitivity testing Quotes “The problem is that food sensitivity tests are not accurate. There’s little evidence to support the idea that IgG testing can uncover food sensitivities. In fact, both the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology and the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology warn against using food sensitivity tests as diagnostic tools.” “Food sensitivity testing results are highly changeable depending on your current diet. So it’s not uncommon to see all of your favorite foods that you eat daily show up as moderate or even high food sensitivities leading you to think that they are now bad for you.”
