Food Sensitivity Testing

Saliva Hormone Testing

Saliva Hormone Testing is an accurate, non-invasive method of determining hormonal imbalances in the body. Saliva collection can be done in the comfort of your own home by simply spitting into a tube. 

Why get your hormones tested?
Hormones play a key role in an individual's overall health. Stress, mood, memory, energy, irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain/loss, sleep and libido are some of the aspects of our well being that are directly affected by our hormone levels. When in balance, hormones are important contributors to wellness and good health. 

Leaky Gut Testing

Leaky Gut Testing (or Intestinal Permeability Testing) is a non-invasive gastrointestinal test that measures small intestinal absorption and barrier function in the bowel. 

The gastrointestinal tract, referred to as the "gut", is the portal to general health and wellness. It contains 80% of our immune system and may be affected by enzymatic or bacterial imbalances, resulting in inflammation. These reactions may lead to gut cell deterioration and increased permeability (Leaky Gut). 

What is Leaky Gut?

Leaky Gut occurs when the gut lining becomes abnormally permeable, allowing bacteria, food, and other large molecules to pass through. This results in inflammation and allergic responses. 

Food Sensitivity Testing

Food Sensitivity Testing measures your body's total IgG response to your choice of 24 or 88 common allergen food panels. Food Sensitivity Testing helps determine the possible source of enzyme imbalances, such as the stomach, pancreas and/or biliary system as well as bacterial imbalance (dysbiosis). When used together with Leaky Gut Testing, the tests give a clearer portrait of gut function, a vital aid in determining treatment. 

What is a Food Sensitivity?

A food sensitivity is a result of immune reactions (IgG), with symptoms generally limited to the gut. This distinguishes it from a food "allergy" (IgE), which may cause severe, life threatening, allergic reactions (anaphylaxis).
