Food Sensitivity Testing

Did you know that these symptoms may be related to the foods you eat?

A food sensitivity test is a simple blood test, which helps to identify foods that cause an adverse reaction in your body. Call Peggy at the office, 203-575-1811, ext. 127, and ask her if Food Allergy Antibody Testing is right for you.
