Food Sensitivities

If you suffer from chronic constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, headaches, acne, eczema, psoriasis, anxiety (really, the list could go on and on), you may have an underlying food sensitivity. Most people know if they are allergic to a food, such as peanuts or shellfish. But food sensitivities often get missed.

Common symptoms of food sensitivities are:

Nasal congestion                   Puffy Eyes                              Gas, Bloating

Frequent Colds                      Mental Fogginess                  Mood Changes

Headaches, Migraines        Joint Pain, Arthritis             Diarrhea or Constipation

Testing for Food Sensitivities:

The best way to find out if you have food sensitivities is to have your blood tested.

Your immune system responds to food you are sensitive to by creating antibodies against that food. These antibodies are measurable in your blood and can be key in determining your food sensitivities. At Lakeside Natural Medicine, we offer a test to assess for food sensitivities to 96 general foods.

Identifying food sensitivities is one of the first steps to healing the gut.

Naturopathic wellness services are not a substitute for diagnosis and treatment from your medical treatment provider.


Dr. Joanne Aponte's bedside manner is both calm and patient. She listens intently and then explains her recommendations in great detail and then provides my wellness plan printed for my convenience. She is very knowledgeable in naturopathic medicine. With her help I am symptom free, feel great and know I am leading a healthier life than before knowing her. I strongly recommend Dr. Aponte.
