Allergies – This is the IgG Food Sensitivity Test… Many allergies are delayed making it really hard to know what particular foods may be causing added inflammation and bloating/gut issues. This test has been really useful for me decreasing the inflammation in my body and you can see the decrease in immune response from my first test last year to my more recent test after decreasing these particular foods in my diet. I’m working with @labtestsdirect to give you some options to improve your health that you can complete at home. This one is a simple finger prick test. You can then discuss your results with their support staff or your own health care practitioner to interpret and make a plan to improve your health. See labtestsdirect.com.au for the test they’ve included the code IGG10 for a 10% discount for you guys #preventivehealth #foodsensitivity #healthyliving

STRESS- The stress response is there to save us and keep us alive… but we’re not built to live in it all the time! Getting my Adrenal Fatigue Assessment done has been especially interesting to explain why my sleeping patterns are off… in short, my cortisol is low in the morning and too higher at night… which may explain why I generally don’t bounce out of bed and why I struggle to go to sleep early. . I’m working with @labtestsdirect to give you some options to improve your health that you can complete at home. This one is a simple saliva sample.

In contrast to the old adage, we are not only what we are eat, but how we digest our food, absorb nutrients and eliminate wastes. Healthy digestive and gastrointestinal function, which includes the stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, gall bladder and pancreatic function, is the true pillar of good health. Gastrointestinal function is important for general health. The intestinal tract contains significant amounts of bacteria; some beneficial, some neutral, and some harmful. Balancing beneficial microbial flora in the gut is key to proper digestion, efficient nutrient usage, and ridding the body of waste and pathogens. Poor digestion and malabsorption can lead to immune dysfunction, nutritional insufficiencies, mental/emotional disorders, and autoimmune diseases. This stool testing offers the Complete GIFx profile using PCR-based DNA testing, for the most thorough look at the gut environment and overall function. I'm doing a test in the comfort of my own home that came with everything I need which I can express post back to the lab and have my results sent to me so I can see what's going on inside and make the changes I need too. I'm looking forward to seeing what my results are and I shall do an update and let you know when I get them back. If this is something you've been wanting to do head over to @labtestsdirect and order your test you can add code AT10 to receive 10% off all tests that you can do in the comfort of your own home. #labtestsdirect #ad #healthandwellness #healthbenefits #healthierchoices

The results are in!!! I've always had an innate curiosity about how my body works, so when I discovered @labtestsdirect I was super excited to find a range of tests available to order online, without having to visit the GP! I decided to check out the Food Sensitivity Combo test which screens for both IgG and IgA reactions to 96 commonly consumed foods that may be causing reactions in the body. I had previously never been tested before so I was super interested to see what the results would come up with… turns out I have high reaction to chicken eggs (both the white and yolk!) and moderate reactions to duck eggs, milk, and whey! I had no idea! 😱 Although think about it it now puts so many puzzle pieces together and explains why both Indi and Elsie have had egg reactions too! By having food sensitivity testing you can help determine if food reactions are contributing to physical or mental symptoms, get a result quicker than elimination strategies, and then eliminate all identified food allergens to reduce stress on the immune system, decrease inflammation, and resolve food cravings. There are also loads of other tests you can check out including Adrenal Fatigue, Gut Bacteria Screen, IBS Status and even Fertility Profile Screen. Head to the Lab Tests Direct website for more info and to order your test today- use my special code NW10 for 10% off 🙌🏻 #labtestsdirect #ad

TRUE HEALTH is finding what works best for you and your body🌿🙏🏼 while all evidence supports that all humans can thrive off a plant based diet, individual differences can play a HUGE role too in which foods and what kind of lifestyle make us feel or best🌻✨ Studying Nutritional Medicine really made me appreciate this on a whole new level + how important it is to learn to listen to your body😌 . With both myself and my clients, one of the biggest factors that tends to hold people back from achieving their best health are food sensitivities ~ which can result in a while range of symptoms from poor digestion to skin issues🙊 Finding out exactly which foods are the cause is tricky, which is why I rely on simple, yet accurate pathology testing, such as Food Sensitivities test from @labtestsdirect to shine some light on finding out the root cause (NUTRITION #NERD at heart🤓🍎) . I recently got the results back and it showed that I am reacting to quite a number of foods I eat on a daily basis, including buckwheat and almonds (sad face 😓) so now I’m focusing on TEMPORARILY removing those foods + healing my gut so I can enjoy them again soon!🙌🏼 . With a whole range of nutritional tests you can complete from your very own home (and you can use the code NG10 for 10% OFF!), I’m so grateful for tools like this to help me tweak and adjust my own diet + that of my clients to FEEL GREAT and achieve best health. Health truly is the greatest wealth💜 . . . . #labtestsdirect #ad #nutrition #health #foodie #diet #nourish #fruit #raw #vegan #plantbased #food #healthyfood #cleaneating #smoothie #breakfast #fitness #fitfood #recipe #wellbeing #happiness #nutritionist #veganfood #nicecream #guthealth

Hearty Vegetable & Chickpea Soup🍃I'm looking forward to all the nourishing comfort food that the cooler weather brings. Next to my delicious bowl of soup you can see some of the results of my IgG Food Sensitivity Test that I took with Lab Tests Direct, which screens for 96 different foods. I have never had any kind of food sensitivity test before so I found this really interesting, and it was great to find that I have no major sensitivities! You can see my results showed very low antibody levels for a few things including wheat, gluten, beets, and cane sugar. I am planning on reducing the amount of these foods in my diet and I'm excited to see if I notice a difference to how I feel!
