IgG antibodies are present in all body fluids and serve as a first line of defense against infection, but do not release histamine or produce the familiar immediate hypersensitivity reactions of itching, hives, flushing, or sneezing associated with classic IgE allergic reactions. In contrast, IgG antibodies may have more subtle immune effects, ranging from gastrointestinal bloating and nausea to headaches, mood changes, and fatigue. Unknowingly, people may continue to eat “offending” foods, not connecting delayed reactions to the foods eaten perhaps hours or days before.

  • Helps determine if food reactions are contributing to physical or mental symptoms

  • Removal of highly reactive foods from the diet is a non-invasive, food-based therapy that often mitigates a patient’s symptoms

  • Research and clinical studies suggest food allergies identified by IgG testing can be a major contributing factor in many chronic health conditions

  • Food rotation and elimination diets can reduce stress on the immune system, lower gut inflammation, resolve food cravings, and reduce the potential for eating disorders
