Food Sensitivity Testing (KBMO FIT) - $390
· Food sensitivity and related disease affect at least 100 million people worldwide
· Food Sensitivities have increased more than 50% in adults and children in the past few years.
· 90% of sensitivities or allergies are in eight food groups: milk, wheat, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish & fish.
· One or all of the foods in a specific group may cause food sensitivity.
· Delayed food sensitivities can occur hours or days after food ingestion.
· Food intolerances can contribute to a leaky gut and a leaky gut can create food intolerances.
So what causes leaky gut? Poor digestion, poor diet, toxins, stress & food sensitivities all can weaken the walls of the small intestine creating inflammation loosening the normally tight junctions. (This allows large food particles, toxins and other substances to pass through into the bloodstream where they don’t belong. Once in the bloodstream, the immune system may not recognize these substances and attack them as they would a virus creating antibodies so every time that food or substance is eaten, the immune system will mount an attack creating inflammation in the body).

The most accurate way to identify food sensitivities is with a blood test.
Prairie Hill Nutrition is excited to offer a new state of the art food sensitivity test to detect food intolerances called the FIT test or “Food Inflammation Test” by KBMO Labs. This test measures the sensitivity to 132 foods, colorings and additives. This is the only test available that measures both IgG and Immune Complexes together making it much more sensitive to identifying allergens.
The food sensitivity test is a simple finger stick blood spot test that you can do in office or at home and mail in yourself. Results usually take 7-10 business days after receipt. Prairie Hill Nutrition will receive and forward the results to you.
Addressing food sensitivities can play a big role in reaching your health & wellness goals. Working on digestive health and blood sugar regulation is essential to managing and eliminating food sensitivities. Balancing these foundations through nutritional therapy may allow you to reintroduce these foods into your life again.
