Mom2, my suggestion is that you find a doctor who will give you the ELISA sensitivity test and will work with you to devise a diet that will (in many cases) actually heal you of a lot of your food sensitivities. Sometimes the body just needs a long-term break from certain foods to get it to settle down from its inflammatory responses. But, in my strong opinion it is best to do this test with a doctor (most likely it would be a naturopath) to get an expert's help to interpret the test results to your best advantage. The ELISA test is way better than those skin prick tests that often give wrong results and don't actually help a person to GET OVER their sensitivities.
It is expensive, I have to warn you. But it is truly worth it; it's your health. If your body keeps experiencing inflammation without breaks it can get much worse. The ELISA test will detect foods that are causing inflammation that you aren't aware of...yet. One culprit food will make another culprit food cause stronger reaction.
I hope this helps.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
