Food Sensitivity Testing

Food Sensitivity Testing with our Manhattan Chiropractor

Most people experience some form of digestive issues while traveling, and most people are unaware that a chiropractic office can help them figure out what problem is behind those issues. While traveling, it's likely that you eat different foods than you normally would. For example, during a business meeting, you might indulge in some cocktails and sushi. Later that weekend, perhaps you head home for a family bbq. The following week? Traveling internationally, trying all sorts of new foods that you haven't had before. Trying different foods is one of the best parts of traveling... except when all of that deliciousness leaves you sidelined with tummy trouble.

One of the best ways to figure out what foods you need is to take a food sensitivity test. Many of us have food sensitivities, and these are different from allergies. Food sensitivities don't cause super obvious reactions that we see with allergens (such as hives, anaphalaxys, or rashes). In the past, the only way to figure out food sensitivities was to do a complex elimination diet, completely eliminating all possible allergens, then adding them back in one at a time to see which foods (if any) caused symptoms. While effective, this type of diet is tough to follow, and many people who try it find that it's easier to simply give up and live with their symptoms when they occur. Thankfully, there is now an easier way. 

What To Expect

Food sensitivity testing is a simple, in office procedure performed by many chiropractic and holistic medical offices. Your food sensitivity test will inform you and your practitioner about what foods you need to avoid. As you remove these foods from your diet, you're likely to experience a decrease in weight alongside an increase in energy levels and a heightened sense of overall well-being. Your practitioner will work with you to help you find ways to make your new nutrition plan work for you. Eliminating foods to which you are sensitive is also likely to decrease any bloating or inflammation you are currently experiencing.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
