TweetThe words foods you can eat are different from person to person..
And you'll never know WHICH foods are bad for you unless you take a food sensitivity test.

Food Sensitivity Test
Who should take this test?
Do you ever feel like you may have certain symptoms related to foods, such as headaches, stomach pain, diarrhea, or fatigue? You may want to try eliminating possible triggers, but you are not sure where to start?
Our Food Sensitivity tests measure your body's IgG immune response to 96 foods that are commonly found in western diets.
Unlike a true food allergy or severe medical conditions like celiac disease, an antibody IgG immune response has been demonstrated to offer guidance on what foods may be the best to eliminate. Rather than randomly eliminating foods over many months and assessing your change in symptoms, as improvement in symptoms is always the best test, you can have a directed elimination plan. This test is not a food allergy test. Food allergy tests measure IgE antibodies, which require a larger volume of blood and thus can't be currently taken at home. This test also cannot diagnose Celiac Disease.
Food can trigger an immune response which manifests itself in physical symptoms such as:
- Dry and itchy skin
- Other miscellaneous skin problems
- Food intolerance
- Feeling bloated after eating
- Joint pain
- Gastrointestinal (GI) distress
- Stomach pain
If you are looking to add a potentially ‘problematic’ food back into your diet to see if you’re still sensitive to it on your test results, it’s recommended to consume that food for about 4 weeks prior to testing. Please be advised that if you experience symptoms while eating this food, you’ve already identified a sensitivity.

What will my results tell me?
Your results will tell you how reactive your IgG antibodies are to 96 foods commonly found in western diets.
Each food will have a rating of Class 0 (low reactivity) all the way to Class 3 (High reactivity).
How accurate is this test?
Our test is very accurate, and can detect low levels of IgG reactivity.
IgG antibodies are naturally broken down by your body if they aren't being used; therefore, some people who have eliminated foods from their diet for long periods of time may not have any elevated IgG reactivity to report, but that does not mean your IgG reactivity would have measured the same had you still been consuming the symptom provoking foods you previously removed.
Additionally, you may have an elevated reactivity to a food that you do not consume as a result of cross reactivity to other substances you are exposed to in the environment or as a result of ingesting ingredients in processed foods that you did not realize were actually a particular food.
What guidance will I get along with my results?
EverlyWell will provide tailored advice about what to do next. While reactivity does not always equate with symptoms, it can help prioritize the elimination of certain foods. Once you have your IgG test results, you can try an elimination diet of your choosing until you achieve the right balance of minimizing your symptoms while maintaining a lifestyle that you enjoy.
You may choose to not stop eating certain foods, but knowing your reactivity might lead to adjustments in how much or frequently you eat them.
