Food allergies are usually immediate reactions after consuming a particular food, which come on suddenly and can be life-threatening. Food intolerances (or sensitivities) on the other hand are delayed reactions by our immune systems, which often result in seemingly unrelated symptoms. They can be developed overtime by consuming too much of the same foods, or due to poor digestive function. Food sensitivities are being linked to many different health concerns, including energy, hormonal imbalances, gastrointestinal disturbances, skin problems, weight gain, mood, headaches, among many others. At Oakville Naturopathic Clinic we employ Electrodermal (Vega) testing, blood antibody (IgG) and dietary testing to uncover any hidden food intolerances that may be affecting your health.
