Food Allergies & Sensitivities

Do you or someone you know struggle with food allergies or sensitivities? The food that we put in our bodies plays an integral part in who we are – the way we metabolize food varies dramatically across different individuals. Certain foods can have a strong effect on some people while not on others; this can influence energy, weight, inflammation and overall well-being.

Did you know that over 70% of people eat foods that their bodies can’t easily tolerate? The result can include weight gain, loss of energy and even a shortened lifespan. We all know someone that has severe allergies to certain foods (nuts and shellfish, for example), but did you know that even a mild reaction to food – even though we can’t feel any direct major symptoms – can attack the body and create an immune response that results in these symptoms? This inflammation can raise insulin levels and prevent effective weight loss and create chronic pain – in addition to many other dangerous symptoms.

Inflammation can take a toll on the body – it is the body’s attempt at self-protection. Taking control of inflammation can help you take control of your life and help you live it to the fullest.

Arcadia Wellness Center is one of the only clinics in the valley that can test you for food sensitivity or allergies. Our examination can test you for over 300 different foods as well as molds and dyes. We provide a comprehensive plan to help you avoid the foods that are making you sick, making you gain weight, causing chronic pain and reducing your lifespan. Many of our patients have already had their lives changed just by avoiding a few foods – and have experienced weight loss and dramatic improvement in their overall well-being.
