Hey everyone! How are you feeling so far today? I hope you have a wonderful day. I’m working on my podcast today (new episode tomorrow) and meeting some friends for lunch.

In today’s post, I want to share a little more about my personal health journey and one of the steps in that journey: food sensitivity testing. When I first enrolled in the IHP program (you can read my review of Level 1 here and Level 2 here), I knew I wanted to be able to help my friends and clients in a completely different and more personalized way. I had no idea how useful this information would be on a personal level as well.

Through IHP’s knowledge and testing abilities, I am able to discover some of the root causes and work to restore balance to the body by removing toxicity and repairing deficiencies.

At-home IgG food sensitivity test review (and my results)

Simple version:

– Last spring, I suffered from severe pink eyes that triggered constant eye problems such as watering, extreme redness, itching, and discharge. I couldn’t wear contacts for almost 3 months. I have tried almost every pharmacy eye section :/

– I went to several eye doctors who couldn’t help me (they just tried to throw the kitchen sink full of eye drops and prescriptions at me and didn’t help anything) – I finally I found a dry eye specialist who gave me a plan of action.my eyes have improved significantly

– I did a blood test at PCP to check for basic markers and inflammation, and two markers for lupus came back positive. This explains the joint pain and weird rashes on my hands that I’ve had for years. Whenever I was under extreme or prolonged stress, I would break out in a rash, and my hands would often hurt at night, but I thought it was because I was typing too much.

– I immediately went into test and learn mode, HTMA test, candida metabolism and vitamin testing, and Food sensitivity test. (If you are interested in testing, please email us and we will get it for you at a lower price than what is available on the website.) Eye problems (I believe this is partially an allergic reaction) + Autoimmune symptoms tell me something is probably going on. So I wanted to know if I had yeast, bacterial, or candida overgrowth (I had all three) and how my body was responding to stress. I was nutritionally deficient in several metrics and also had elevated levels in some heavy metals.

– After months of working to reduce inflammation in my body, my lupus markers came back negative in December!!! Yay! I had never been officially diagnosed with lupus, but since my symptoms were under control, I was waiting to see a rheumatologist until I had answers and could be retested, but this… It just shows that the inflammation is definitely going down, which is a good thing overall.

– I have made major changes in my lifestyle and eating habits. The food sensitivity test was to see if I was eating anything that could cause excessive inflammation. In today’s post, I will share the process, results, and valuable information gained from this at-home test.

IgG food sensitivity test results

What is an IgG reaction?

IgG, or immunoglobulin G, is an antibody present in our immune system. IgG reactions occur when the body perceives a particular food as a threat, triggering an immune response that can cause a variety of symptoms. These reactions are different Symptoms are caused by an immediate allergic-type reaction (such as hives, anaphylaxis, or severe itching) and are often accompanied by delayed symptoms, making them difficult to identify without specialized testing. is.

A whole day from start to finish

At-home IgG food sensitivity test:

IgG food sensitivity test is a convenient home test designed to identify potential food sensitivities. This process usually involves a simple blood sample that can be taken using a finger stick kit provided by the testing service. To better illustrate this experience, I’ll share a screenshot of my test results.

Advantages of IgG food sensitivity testing:

Personalized insights:

This test provides personalized insight into your body’s specific reactions to different foods. This information allows you to make informed dietary choices that meet your unique needs. This special test covers 190 of the most common foods and spices.

Identifying hidden triggers:

Unlike immediate allergic reactions, IgG reactions are often delayed, making it difficult to identify the triggering food. This test helps uncover potential hidden causes of various health problems.

Symptom management:

Understanding and addressing food sensitivities can help manage a variety of symptoms such as bloating, fatigue, skin problems, brain fog, anxiety, and digestive discomfort.

Nutritional optimization:

With knowledge of your body’s responses, you can optimize your nutrition by choosing foods that support your overall health and minimize the risk of triggering an inflammatory response.

Targeted elimination diet:

Test results can guide the implementation of a targeted elimination diet. By temporarily removing identified trigger foods, you can assess the impact on your symptoms and gradually reintroduce the food based on your body’s response. Depending on the severity, remove food for 6 weeks, 12 weeks, or 6 months, then gradually introduce food back in to see how your body responds.

Cons of at-home food sensitivity testing:

Although food sensitivity tests are gaining popularity as a potential tool for understanding an individual’s response to specific foods, it is essential to be aware of some of the criticisms and concerns regarding these tests. Critics argue that the scientific validity and reliability of many commercially available food sensitivity tests are debatable. The main criticism stems from the diversity of immune responses and the complexity of the human body’s response to different foods.

Furthermore, the concept of IgG response as an indicator of food sensitivity is not widely accepted in the medical and scientific community. Some argue that elevated IgG levels do not necessarily correlate with adverse reactions and may vary between individuals, even in the absence of obvious symptoms.. Additionally, the dynamic nature of the immune system makes it difficult to establish definitive causal relationships between specific foods and health problems. For those considering food sensitivity testing, it is important to approach the test with a critical mindset, be aware of the limitations of the test, and consult a medical professional for a comprehensive assessment of any health concerns. It is important.

My experience:

In this article, I will explain it with my personal experience. IgG food sensitivity test, I’ll share the foods that caused the reaction, my initial reaction, and how I adjusted my diet based on the results. I thought it would be helpful for friends who are considering this or are on a similar journey.

This test involves ingesting a mixture of different foods in your body, especially those that seem to be problematic (but not allergenic; if you know you’re allergic to walnuts, avoid them) is needed. Dr. Cabral recommends an egg sandwich with cheese a few days before the test. I wanted this test to be representative of how I eat, but I’m excluding gluten and dairy for now. Several books recommended cutting out gluten and dairy if you have autoimmune conditions, so I cut these out after going down the lupus rabbit hole. I noticed a significant improvement in my joint pain and eyes.

I ate a few bites of my birthday cake a few days before the test and my gluten levels were elevated, proving that it wasn’t the best choice for me right now.

The numbers for almonds, egg whites, and yogurt were also slightly higher, which was a surprise to me.

Through this experience, I was disappointed to learn that I would not be able to eat eggs as long as I used to until my intestines healed. I only eat it about once a week now, and I enjoy every bite. Once the gut has healed, the idea is to allow dairy, gluten, and eggs to be introduced more frequently, checking for reactions along the way.

The test also includes sample meal rotation to help include a variety of foods, potentially reducing negative reactions and reactions to different foods.

This whole process was very enlightening and informative. I look forward to sharing more along the way.
