With its latest announcement, PWC wants to encourage Idylwood residents who have experienced symptoms of food intolerance or a nutritional deficiency to contact one of their healthcare professionals since if left unchecked, dietary issues can affect their body’s natural immunity and defense against illness.
A report by Reuters Health indicated that the US, alongside Germany, Italy, and Norway, is the country with the highest rate prevalence of food sensitivity, with around a fifth of individuals producing antibodies against one or more types of food. Unlike food allergies which usually manifest themselves as symptoms within minutes, food sensitivities can take days to develop. Through food sensitivity testing, the team at PWC can test a patient’s intolerance for up to 200 foods, as well as for nutritional deficits, which can lead to fatigue, low attention span, joint pain, as well as dermatological or gastrointestinal disorders.
The integrative and functional medicine speclistsIt can also design nutritional plans to reintroduce reactive foods after a period of avoiding them, which allows the body to lose its memory of the immunity reaction.
The center also offers advanced nutrigenomic testing, which collects data on a patient’s metabolic weaknesses to allow the team to develop a healthy lifestyle plan or nutritional strategy. Specifically, they can identify the key genetic factors that may cause chronic diseases and food sensitivities and diagnose conditions based on testing and symptom assessments. Using these insights, they can develop preventative care plans that evaluate early signs and symptoms before they worsen.
“Nutritional deficiency testing focuses on nutritional deficiencies at the cellular level. The test that we use is the most comprehensive evaluation available to help overcome chronic disease and promote optimal health”, a spokesperson for the center explained.
