Food Sensitivities

A child with a food sensitivity has symptoms from an immune system reaction after eating a particular food. Symptoms from a food sensitivity can take up to 72 hours to appear. Opposed to allergic reactions to food where symptoms usually start within minutes.

When the immune system overreacts to food, we call it food allergy (when it raises the antibody IgE) or food sensitivity (when it increases the antibody IgG). Food allergies can be life-threatening, whereas food sensitivities aren’t life-threatening.

Symptoms related to food sensitivities include:

  • Bloating
  • Indigestion
  • Constipation
  • Headaches
  • Brain fog
  • Fatigue
  • Acne
  • Rashes

Food sensitivities are diagnosed with blood testing.

Conventional medicine doesn’t yet recognize the clinical utility of food sensitivity testing.

“Dr. Sue’s comprehensive approach pieced together the pieces of the puzzle for me that I couldn’t between our pediatrician and lots of reading! The testing she did made sense and the results helped me better understand my son’s health needs.” – Carly Elia
