I must admit, including food sensitivity testing into our portfolio of services was something I’ve been reluctant to do. Not because it lacked validity, but I’m extremely protective of our ShyTown community and only want to provide the best tools available on our quest to feeling our best.
It wasn’t until we started receiving feedback that my perspective shifted.
I’d still recommend starting with a conservative elimination diet to identify if there’s an issue. But Tracey had exhausted all options, spending thousands of dollars on blood work, medications, and doctor visits… she was ready to try something else.
Tracey’s story in her words:
(1) What symptoms did you have prior to making changes?
- Weight gain
- Brain fog and lethargy
- Uncontrollable cravings
- Joint pain & sinus infections
- Acid reflux – I didn’t even know this was happening because it had been going on so long my throat was permanently burned.
(2) When did you recognize you were having symptoms?
- I knew something was wrong, especially with the bloating. My belly by afternoon was distended and firm. But I wasn’t thinking food allergy. I was thinking thyroid, hormones, leaky gut or even rheumatoid arthritis.
- I have never had high blood pressure or high cholesterol. But during this time, both were embarrassingly high.
- ANA test result was literally through the roof! The only explanation was an undiagnosed autoimmune disease.
- Over the last two years I saw an internist, a primary care doc, my gynecologist, a gastroenterologist, a rheumatologist, an endocrinologist, and spent thousands on lab work!
(3) What foods did you need to avoid based on your results?
- Off the charts high reaction to egg whites
- Moderate to egg yolks
- Low for gliadin.
- Moderate level of candida.
(4) Since eliminating how long did it take to start feeling better?
I saw results within a few days after eliminating eggs!!
- The afternoon bloating stopped!
- So far I’m down 25 lbs!
- Within a couple of weeks I no longer needed an afternoon catnap.
- The lethargy & brain fog lifted.
- Depression, joint pain, and sinus infections have all disappeared.
- My physical cravings are basically gone.
- For the first time in 30 years I’m off all Anti-depressants!
(5) Any other benefits that resulted from the changes?
- Sleep is definitely better too & digestion is slightly better.
- Best of all, both my cholesterol & Blood Pressure are back down to an athletic level!
- Forgot to add, my once sky high ANA results (tested twice over 6 months, both times abnormally high) is now NORMAL!!!
- ANA is an autoimmune indicator. The fact that it has reversed now that eggs have been eliminated suggests the food testing correct!
- That’s huge!!! Autoimmune diseases are difficult to diagnose. It’s really a process of elimination. But no one thought to check food allergies! So These doctors would’ve kept medicating me for a disease I didn’t even have! Mind blown! Lol
