Put Your Body to the Test with an At-Home Kit for Food Sensitivity
If you suspect that certain foods are giving you “tummy trouble”, it may be time to put your body to the test when it comes to food sensitivity. Going to see your primary care physician should be your first option, then if you’re looking for an alternative way to learn more about which foods don’t agree with you – there’s an easy test you can take.
The Texas-based business, Everlywell provides access to multiple at-home health and wellness tests, including food sensitivity. Not to be confused with an allergy test, this kit measures your body’s immune response to 96 foods to help guide you on what types of food may be the best to choose for an elimination diet. This includes dairy, seafood, grains, and more.
A food sensitivity test kit can be ordered from their website, but can also be found at your local pharmacy. Each kit includes directions, pre-paid shipping, all of the materials needed to collect sample analysis, digital and printable results, and access to a group webinar with a healthcare professional.
The results of your Everlywell Food Sensitivity Test are intended to be used to guide a temporary elimination diet with an add-back challenge.
Speak with your primary care physician before beginning any diet to make sure it’s suitable for you.
