Food Sensitivity Testing

Do you think some foods and food chemicals make you sick? Food Sensitivity Testing can help you discover what exactly your body is reacting to, even when it’s a food you’ve consumed your whole life.

Many times, your immune system reacts to certain foods and food chemicals as “invaders” to our own body, causing symptoms that produce inflammation in our bodies.

Food sensitivities are more common than we imagine yet difficult to identify, as symptoms are quite varied and reactions can be delayed and dependent on the amount of food we consume.

The only lab test in United States (also reached Mexico and Canada) and their counterpart in Poland (for all European based patients) is the Mediator Release Test (MRT) patented by Oxford Biomedical Technologies (Florida), which tests 150 foods and food chemicals.
