Diagnose your Food Sensitivity with a Food Sensitivity Test!
Do you periodically feel tired or moody? Do you often experience headaches, gas, bloating, or constipation? If something “feels off,” it could be caused by a food sensitivity. This condition often goes unnoticed, but can dramatically affect the quality of life of the people that experience it. If you’ve found yourself experiencing changes in energy, mood, and overall health, you might want to undergo a food sensitivity test. This test can help physicians either rule out or confirm food as the source of your discomfort.
Better Life is proud to provide both male and female patients in the Charleston, South Carolina, and Charlotte, North Carolina areas with a wide variety of wellness services.

What are Food Sensitivities?
At least 100 million people in the world today are affected by food sensitivities. Contrary to popular belief, food sensitivities and food allergies are not the same things. While food allergies elicit a severe overreaction of the immune system that is quickly noticeable, food sensitivities trigger less severe reactions that usually manifest themselves slowly over time.
Symptoms of food sensitivities include:
- Brain fog
- Food cravings
- Gas, bloating, and constipation
- Joint pain
Because the symptoms of food sensitivities are usually subtle and easy to attribute to other factors, they conditions can often go unnoticed and unaddressed. These conditions can be caused by a variety of factors, including eating the same foods repeatedly and consuming foods with pesticides, additives, or food coloring.
How Can Food Sensitivity Testing Benefit You?
At Better Life, we administer a high-quality food sensitivity test to our patients. This test can help our physicians identify foods that each patient is particularly sensitive to. In addition to identifying these foods, food sensitivity tests are useful because they can provide an explanation for strange symptoms, either confirming or ruling out diet as a cause.
If our doctors do find out that a patient has a food sensitivity, patients can then begin to take the proper steps towards cutting the foods that they are sensitive to out of their diets. Once patients take these steps, they usually begin to notice many of their adverse symptoms subsiding. Many feel more energized, alert, and in overall better moods.
If you’re experiencing some of the symptoms of food sensitivity, contact Better Life today to schedule a food sensitivity test. We’re proud to offer this amazing service to interested patients in the Charlotte, North Carolina, and Charleston, South Carolina areas.
