When it comes to GERD, ignorance is not bliss.
A single dietary mistake can leave you with symptoms of burning, nausea, and belching.
There are certain foods known for triggering acid reflux, foods you know not to eat. However, that doesn’t mean these are the only foods that can cause your symptoms.
Each person’s immune system is crafted differently. And sometimes that means your spouse can eat that delicious dish while you experience an acid reflux flare-up.
Your body may simply be experiencing a food sensitivity that others don’t struggle with.
One of the ways you can beat acid reflux is by knowing which foods are triggering your symptoms. You can find this out through a food sensitivity test. I’ll explain exactly what I’m talking about.
What is a food sensitivity test?
A food sensitivity test will measure if your body will likely produce a negative reaction to certain foods.
Here at Cure Your Acid Reflux, we offer something called an immunoglobulin G (IgG) food sensitivity test.
We offer two types of this test; one test will probe for 96 food sensitivities while the other will test for 184 food sensitivities.
To see which foods are causing your issues, this test will require you to have your blood drawn. You’ll then send your blood to a lab. In approximately 2 weeks, you’ll know your results.
How can a food sensitivity test help my acid reflux?
If your body has a strong negative reaction to a certain food, then that food product has the potential to trigger your stomach’s acid reflux.
For instance, you may have an inflammatory reaction to a vegetable, and you’ve experienced this sensitivity your whole life—without knowing it.
And each time you eat that vegetable, your body panics and triggers your GERD symptoms.
Once the results from the lab come back, you’ll have a better understanding of what could be contributing to your unusual acid reflux symptoms.
With a food sensitivity test, you can pinpoint those foods you want to avoid when you’re…
- Grocery shopping.
- Eating out.
- Cooking meals.
What if I need more help than a food sensitivity test?
A food sensitivity test is a great place to start if you’re looking to halt your reflux symptoms naturally.
However, treating your GERD without PPIs, H2 blockers, or antacids will sometimes require you to do more than just avoid certain foods.
You may need to create radical, holistic changes.
Here at Cure Your Acid Reflux, we want our patients to do just that. In our program, we work to help each patient…
- Eliminate harmful bacteria in the gut.
- Replace that harmful bacteria with good bacteria.
- Help the stomach do its job again with digestive bitters.
- Work through lifestyle changes.
We even offer the IgG food sensitivity test.
