Testing my limits with EverlyWell
Do you ever get that feeling? You exercise, you take care of yourself but you have gone out to lunch or dinner and your tummy hurts. Really hurts. Your tummy blows up and you feel like poop. Stress, food allergies or something more serious? How is a person to know? All I know is I was not ready for a bunch of tests and lab work with hard to follow and understand results. I wanted something that fit my schedule and my budget.
Let me introduce you to EverlyWell.
I did the food sensitivity test. Here are the basics:
Food Sensitivity Test
1.) Tests sensitivity to 96 foods commonly found in modern western diets including gluten, dairy, wheat, and yeast.
2.) Test kit shipped directly to you! No need to go to multiple appointments normally required by traditional labs. No copays, no time off work, no dingy labs.
3.) Quick and easy sample collection – only a few drops of blood needed. We give easy-to-follow instructions and materials to collect your own sample on your own time.
4.) Tests are of the highest accuracy available and performed by the most experienced labs in the nation.
A food reactivity is different from an immediately life-threatening food allergy. Food reactivity is an immune response by the IgG antibody, the largest circulating antibody in our immune system and can cross the placenta from mother to child. Some studies suggest that up to 20% of the population may have reactivity to certain foods, and these reactivities contribute to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, headaches, types of arthritis, autism, ADD/ADHD, eczema, chronic ear infections, gut malabsorption, insomnia and many chronic conditions. Identifying possible offending foods can be difficult since we eat so many different types of food. While reactivity does not always equal symptoms, it can serve as a screening test to find the foods that most likely may cause symptoms for prioritization in trying food elimination.
So I ordered, I collected my blood sample, that was easy ( I pricked my finger) and I mailed the test. What fun test results i received. They are easy to read! I found out I have mild reactions to: eggs, cottage cheese, grapes, pineapples, sesame, chia, black pepper, basil, kelp and a few other things. A nice place to start in my journey to a happy belly.
