What is a food sensitivity test? A food sensitivity test is looking at antibodies that are floating around in your bloodstream for different foods.
What's the problem with that?
Well, 80% of your immune system is in your gut. So if your gut is inflamed, then you're going to have a sensitive immune system with lots of antibodies to various foods.
And your immune system changes with the seasons, with your stress level, with your emotions and with the food that you're eating.
So food sensitivity tests like this are not effective. Not only do they not find the actual root cause of the dietary issue, but they give you a lot of false positives so that you're cutting out lots of foods that aren't actually going to solve the problem.
So look out for food sensitivity tests that don't get to the root. If you want to get to the root chat with us. I'm Dr. Alex from Haven.
