Suffering from unknown food intolerances is frustrating, as you aren’t able to enjoy your favorite meals. Not knowing what specific foods are causing digestive or other issues can even be frightening, and you might even find yourself approaching every meal with hesitation. If you live in San Diego, ALCAT Food Allergy Blood Testing through our practice at Holistic Solutions might be able to help you, though. After just a short visit to our office, we might be able to tell you precisely what is causing your symptoms.
The Symptoms of Food Intolerances
Unlike food allergies, which may restrict airways or send a person into anaphylactic shock, food symptoms rarely pose life-threatening reactions. Nevertheless, they can significantly interfere with your quality of life. Food intolerances may cause:
- digestive pains
- diarrhea or constipation
- joint pain (including arthritis)
Food Intolerances are Common
Food intolerances, unfortunately, are common in much of the population. As much as 70 percent of people suffer from one or more intolerances, making them extremely common yet often ill-treated.

At our office in San Diego ALCAT Food Allergy Blood Testing only takes a few minutes but could benefit you for a lifetime.
