Food Sensitivity Test
5 Word Review: LIFE CHANGING, Worth Every Penny
The EverlyWell Food sensitivity test is an “at-home test measures your body’s IgG response to 96 foods to help provide guidance on what foods may be the best to eliminate.” It costs $199, but I believe I had a 20% coupon around Black Friday. My husband was convinced that he had a dairy intolerance because once he had eliminated dairy from his diet (including his morning yogurt) and he was feeling a LOT better. Mind you, cheese is our main food group here in our household so this was a BIG diet change and sacrifice. He was livin that dairy-free life but still not feeling great (but better). I saw a discount code for the Food Sensitivity Test, had an “aha” moment and ordered it as a sort of early Christmas present last year. We have Kaiser insurance and they would never pay for something like this.
You do a finger stick, squeeze a few drops onto the provided card and mail it back (regular mail). His results arrived within a few days and he said “the test is totally wrong.” It showed he had a mild intolerance to honey and brewer’s yeast (his top 2). He decided to pay attention to those ingredients in what he ate and OH. MY. GOODNESS. He became a new man. We realized his morning yogurt’s top ingredient was honey and that the beer he was drinking regularly was high in brewer’s yeast. That meant he did NOT have a dairy intolerance and he could have all the Mt Tam triple cream brie, Laura Chenel goat cheese, and Irish cheddar his heart desired.
The results of the test guided C.J. to what he should avoid (honey and brewer’s yeast) and gave him back the ability to eat dairy. All in all, I would say the $160 (or even the full price of $200) was a small price to pay for a lifetime of cheese enjoyment and symptom reduction from avoiding honey and yeast.
It looks like EverlyWell has around 29 tests to choose from inclusing fertility, women’s + men’s health and STD testing. You don’t have to give your full/real name to send it in.
