    Hi,

    I wanted to know if anyone has ever gotten allergy tested where they test your blood and see if you have reactions with foods over a 72 hour span? If so, is it worth it and can anyone recommend a place? Thank you!!!

    There is a type of doctor called allergist, so I would find one in the phone book or under your health insurance if you have one. People rate them online as well.

    I had a FACT test by Genova Diagnostics, which showed up some random allergies like Oats, Oregano amongst other things i’ve never noticed adverse reactions too.

    I also had a Candida blood test, although in hindsight I’ve learnt that was a waste of money.

    An allergist won’t likely tell you about food intolerances, rather only allergies. You would have to see a homeopathic person to see what foods your body is not liking in one way or another. My daughter has eczema. No allergist will tell her it’s related to a diet, but homeopaths did and told me which food groups and foods. Good luck.

    In my opinion thats pretty easy to work out yourself then, write down what foods you eat a lot, then assume these could be the one’s you are intolerant too, then eliminate them for 2 weeks to 3 months & see if anything it improves.

    I’m not convinced an IgG test will tell you anymore than you can work out yourself, especially the pin prick tests that you post back to them.
