When clients suffer from difficult to treat symptoms, they often suspect food sensitivity. Food sensitivity blood testing is very appealing because it gives clients a list of foods to avoid, and with that, a sense of control and hope. Working with clients that have had food sensitivity testing can be challenging.
At the end of the session, participants will:
- Understand what IgE and IgG blood tests measure and their clinical relevance.
- Recognize why clients seek this testing and the detrimental effects of inappropriate testing on clients’ dietary intake, stress and relationship with food.
- Gain new tools to discuss test results with clients and help mitigate the damage.
