Food Sensitivity Testing
IBS, migraine, and fibromyalgia affect 60,000,000 Americans. Roughly 2/3 of them are women. Unfortunately, conventional treatments (including pharmaceutical therapies) are often unsuccessful. Diet is typically the area that gets the least amount of attention but in most cases is the key to find relief. Food sensitivity testing may be the missing link in getting you back on the road to health.
Food Sensitivities are quite different and far more common than food allergies. In a true food allergy, the immune system will produce a reaction within minutes of eating the offending food. Food allergy reactions affect breathing, skin (rashes) and/or the GI tract (eg vomiting) and can result in death. Food sensitivities on the other hand have delayed reaction and can affect all parts of your body. Symptoms may manifest in a few hours or a few days. Food sensitivities also may be dosed dependent. For instance you might be able to tolerate one egg on occasion but not a 3 egg omelet.
The LEAP Program (Lifestyle, Eating and Performance) is a strategic method of dealing with the dietary components of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), migraines, fibromyalgia, joint and muscle pain, fatigue, vomiting, chronic sinusitis and other symptoms caused by delayed food sensitivities.
