Food sensitivity plays a large role in your acid reflux, or at the very least, can be ruled out—or identified—by your physician. Some foods may have a subtle effect on you about because not all food allergies are obvious. This is sometimes the case for those with GERD—lifelong food allergies that they remain unaware of. They continue to eat the same food without realizing that it causes acid reflux flare-ups.
Curing your acid reflux starts with identifying what foods may be contributing to your symptoms.
While there are many foods typically associated as GERD triggers—alcohol, raw onions, citrus fruits, tomatoes—these might not be what’s causing your heartburn. A food sensitivity test will identify your problem foods and beverages, rather than force you to give up a ton of foods you love that may not even be responsible for your condition in the first place.
To beat hidden food allergies and combat your acid reflux, we offer 2 different food sensitivity tests that gauge your immunological reaction to a multitude of foods, depending on which test you purchase. There’s a Food Sensitivity Test for 96 foods, and one for 184 foods.
The food sensitivity tests help your physician understand what impacts your body in a negative way, so they can create a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and symptoms. Often times, removing a problem food is enough to decrease flare ups; but if the damage caused by your GERD is significant, further treatment options may be necessary. Food sensitivity tests are the best place to start when attempting to cure your acid reflux.
