 Allergy and Food Sensitivity Testing

Celiac disease (also referred to as celiac sprue, non-topical sprue, and gluten-sensitive enteropathy) is an autoimmune disorder triggered by consuming a protein molecule called gluten.  Gluten can be found in grains such as wheat, barley, and rye.  When a person with celiac eats gluten, the protein can create a cascade effect resulting in inflammation and damage to the areas of the small intestine where absorbtion of nutrients occurs.  Inflammation can also affect other areas of the body as well, such as the joints, skin, and sinuses.  The absorbtion sites in the small intestine are called villi.  This damage of the villi can lead to a host of problems including: some cancers, osteoporosis, infertility, diabetes, and other autoimmune diseases, thyroid disorders,  and depression.

Common Symptoms:
Abdominal pain
Delayed Growth
Dermatitis Herpetiformis
Joint Pain
Pale Sores in Mouth
Numbness in Legs

TESTING for food allergies and food sensitivities not just gluten

Not all testing is reliable.  Testing for Gluten Sensitivity, and Celiac disease has continued to evolve.  I have researched and feel that the testing done by the labs I recommend are very good.  We will discuss your options for testing, as well as alternatives to testing with your first consultation.  Please feel free to call for an appointment today, or schedule one yourself on line for Naturopathic services; by choosing the schedule now button. 

An obvious concern to most people is will I have to give up my favorite foods?  Thankfully there are ways to re-create your favorite foods that are not only delicious but don't create havoc from food sensitivities.  There are also ways to create a healthier version of most foods.  With a little coaching, most people begin experimenting in the kitchen with real food instead of processed packaged foods and love it.  The results are often a healthier version of themselves.
