Food intolerances and sensitivities are more common than you might think. In fact, about 1 in 5 people have some type of food sensitivity, and many don’t even know it. Food sensitivity is different from a food allergy. Symptoms may not be as pronounced, and they can vary broadly depending on the type of food and the degree of sensitivity. If you’re frequently experiencing digestive discomfort, bloating, fatigue, headaches, or other unexplained symptoms like these, food sensitivity may be to blame. Unfortunately, food sensitivity testing is often overlooked in the primary care setting. This is just one way in which naturopathic care can offer a more holistic view of your health and help you feel better naturally.
Upon your first visit with our ND, Dr. Bristow, you may discuss food sensitivity testing as part of your treatment plan. With a better understanding of your nutritional needs and sensitivities, we can formulate a nutritional plan that’s right for you. After all, your diet is the foundation of your health and wellness, so it should be specifically catered to your needs.
