Offering a one-on-one consultation with a registered nutritionist, these appointments can be a stand alone approach to your health or a nice add-on to your naturopathic visits, if you would like a treatment plan that focuses primarily on nutrition education, meal planning, and specific dietary plans.Learn More

Food Sensitivity Testing
Food Sensitivities are abnormal reactions to certain foods that can manifest themselves in a number of different ways in the body. These foods can trigger a reaction between the food allergen and your antibodies, generating inflammation in the body tissues. This can lead to a variety of health concerns such as
- mood swings
- brain fog + memory issues
- bloating, constipation, gas
- headaches + migraines
- eczema + rashes
- joint pain + stiffness
There are many more symptoms and health concerns that can arise from food sensitivities. Ultimately with food sensitivities, the gut tissue becomes inflamed allowing these allergen-antibody complexes to enter the blood stream, which causes inflammation and symptoms! Testing for your unique sensitivities allows for an understanding of the root cause of inflammation in the body, and how to move forward. By reducing inflammation, and healing the gut lining so that it doesn't allow leakage of these substances into circulation, we can lay a foundation for optimizing your health!
Our Holistic Nutrition Consultant offers testing packages that include a Food Sensitivity Testing Kit, a follow up consultation to discuss the results and develop a treatment plan that includes recommendations for lifestyle and supplementation of nutrients and botanicals, and a structured meal plan to support your health journey.Contact Us!
