Did you know that over 30% of adults and 40% of children suffer from food allergies?* Food allergies are the foundation for of symptoms related to your brain chemistry, immune system, hormones and more.
If you are suffering from any of the following, you should get your personalized Food Allergy test:
- Symptoms related to brain & mood health: Anxiety, depression, sleeping issues, irritability, concentration issues, brain fog, ADD/ADHD and more.

Your gut health is the foundation of your immune health, brain health, and impacts your risk factor for acute and chronic diseases. If our gut is compromised and out of balance, than our entire system will be out of balance resulting in the symptoms listed above as well as many others.
Food allergies are foods that your body has become hypersensitive to. A well-known example of this is Celiac Disease. Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease where your immune system mounts a response against gluten and the small intestine. A celiac panel looks at immunoglobulin made by the immune system in affected individuals; similarly, a food allergy panel will look at immunoglobulin(s) compared against other types of foods that your body might be reacting to.
Because the health of the gut is the foundation for your entire body’s health, when the gut becomes damaged you will experience many other systemic symptoms, and the gut becomes a breeding ground for imbalances in the yeast and flora in your gut.
There are hundreds of dietary programs on the market. The problem with these programs is that every fad-diet assumes that every single person has the same dietary needs. These diets do not take your individual biochemical makeup into consideration. By looking at your unique biomarkers, we can discern what foods are good for you and what foods are not.

An allergy is defined as a damaging response of the immune system to a substance, particularly a pollen, dander, food or dust. The person becomes hypersensitive to these, resulting in unwanted symptoms upon exposure. Your gut health and immune system are inextricably linked, in fact, 78% of your immune tissue is in your gut. The gut is the foundation for our immune response. If our gut is out of balance, our immune response will be out of balance. Allergies originate in dysfunction with the gut and a healthy gut is a safety buffer against allergies, and contrastingly, an unhealthy gut is the foundation of allergies (WebMD). To learn more about the relationship to the gut and the immune system, read the article published in Johns Hopkins Medicine Journal entitled: “The Gut: Where Bacteria and Immune System Meet” by Helen Fields (2015).
*The statistic of 30% and 40% is derived from the aforementioned understanding of allergies starting in the gut.
The evidence is clear that the immune system is regulated by the gut and that allergies are a dysfunction in the immune system in response to an external substance (food, dust, etc). Allergies start in the gut and the treatment of allergies—even if the “symptom” is only seen with exposure to trees or grass, for example—must begin by addressing the gut health and the gut’s response to food.
The challenge is that many allergists are not yet testing gut health. Partly this is because of the systems-based nature of our health care system. Psychiatrists only look at the brain, gastroenterologists only look at the gut. Allergists do IGE (immediate anaphylaxis) testing, and unfortunately this results in many people not identifying the root cause which may be an IGG response to a food they are eating, which causes an immune cascade and therefore reactivity to their environment.
