Food Sensitivity and Intolerance Testing and Treatment in Georgia
Food sensitivity tests help identify the foods that makes you feel unwell and sick. The inability to tolerate foods, also known as a food sensitivity or food intolerance, can have negative nutritional effects and can contribute to immune system problems and inflammation.
This inflammation has been linked to countless chronic conditions including:
- Digestive disorders
- Chronic fatigue
- Aching joints
- Skin disorders
The food sensitivity tests we offer at our Optimum Health Rehab clinics in Georgia are more robust than some of the at-home tests you can find online. Our panels look for more biomarkers, especially those that can be used to ascertain the functioning and integrity of a patient’s gut lining, microflora, and microbiome.
Maybe the most important benefit of trusting Optimum Health Rehab with your food sensitivity testing is the expert analysis we can offer. Our wellness medicine experts have extensive training in the interpretation of food sensitivity test results and comparing those results to your symptoms.
Rotation Diets, Seasonal Diets, and Elimination Diets
Accurately identifying your food sensitives is only half the battle. We also want to make sure you have the knowhow to make lifestyle changes informed by what you learn. There are several ways in which the diet you choose can help either improve your tolerance to certain foods or help you reach your nutritional needs despite your intolerances.
Elimination diets, for example, involve removing specific foods from your diet for a set period of time to see if your symptoms improve. Severe allergic reactions are far from the only negative way in which your body can react to certain foods, additives, preservatives, flavor enhancers, or common chemical compounds.
Once intolerances have been identified and those foods have been eliminated from your diet, you can work with your wellness team on a plan to reintroduce certain foods in a slow, regimented way. It’s important these types of diets are approached with care and the analysis of your reactions are thoroughly documented.
Rotation diets can similarly help identify food intolerances by ensuring you can isolate specific foods and ingredients on specific days and track your body’s reactions to those foods.
There are also significant health benefits to both rotation diets and seasonal diets. It’s only been recently in human history that you can get nearly every imaginable food at any time of the year. Humans evolved to eat foods that were seasonably available, and it’s possible a seasonal diet of appropriate foods may help alleviate some of your food intolerance symptoms.
Our wellness teams can help you understand your many options for diagnosing food intolerances and finding ways to cope with your intolerances while still maintaining or even improving your quality of life.
Can Optimum Health Rehab Help Me Determine if I Have a Gluten or Gliadin Sensitivity?
Yes, our food sensitivity panel and testing methods can help you determine whether you are gluten or gliadin intolerant. Some people who suspect they have a gluten sensitivity learn that their symptoms have another cause. Before you start dramatically changing your diet or lifestyle it’s worth your time to undergo a food intolerance panel and testing.
What Should I Do Once I Discover I Have a Gluten or Gliadin Sensitivity?
Our food sensitivity experts can help you customize a diet that lets you continue to enjoy the foods you love or safe alternatives that won’t leave you with the inflammation or gastrointestinal distress.
We can also prescribe pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements containing proprietary blends of amino acids recommended for enhancing structure and function related to nutritional needs and deficiencies.
Some of the natural or medical-grade supplements we suggest can:
- Help maintain proper digestive function
- Aid in the repair of mucosal lining of the digestive track
- Help to improve immune function
