Remember, even if you eat a healthy diet you can still be reactive to certain foods. Perhaps you have sensitivities to eggs, whey, almonds, apples, chicken, lentils or gluten. This specialized at-home test looks at these common foods and more as well as candida.
This easy at-home lab test measures IgG food sensitivities, which is very different from the typical food allergy tests you may have tried before.
While typical food allergy tests search for severe, life-threatening or immediate food reactions, the IgG test ferrets out the foods that are causing hidden immune reactions 24-72 hours after you eat the food.
If you don’t test for food sensitivities and keep eating harmful foods that are causing a reaction, your body will rebel. When you unknowingly overtax your immune system more serious health issues are apt to follow.
This easy, at-home specialized test measures IgG antibodies that may be causing you and your loved ones’ sensitivities to a host of common foods.
Allow approximately 3 weeks once you’ve returned your sample for the lab to process your results. During this time, you will be able to schedule your 30-minute call with one of our health coaches.
All of our health coaches receive extensive training from Dr. Cabral.
Each lab test comes complete with everything you need to easily take your test at home and at your convenience.
During your one-on-one call, your health coach will assess your symptoms and reasons for doing this lab test. Your coach will explain your lab results, answer any questions you may have.
You will walk away with personalized recommendations according to your test results. These can include:
A supplement plan Dietary guidance Sleep guidelines Stress reduction techniques Detox regimens Lifestyle changes

And you can feel confident that the supplements, diet and lifestyle changes we recommend are the right ones for your body and your health goals.

Can I take this test if I'm on immune suppressants?
Since this lab is testing for an IgG reaction, if you are on immunosuppressants the results will not be accurate and we do not recommend using this lab at this time.
When should I re-test for food sensitivity?
In general, we recommend retesting no sooner than 4 months after following the recommendations provided by your health coach. *If you have completed any gut-based protocol and are following with the CBO Finisher/Gut Rebuilding Protocol, we recommend testing after 3 months on the Gut Rebuilding protocol.
Can I take this test if I'm pregnant?
Yes, you can take this test if you're pregnant.
What should I do prior to my blood spot collection?
We highly recommend reading through all instructions thoroughly before planning the day of your collection to make sure you are prepared and don’t have additional questions.
A few tips:
-Hydrate with plenty of water (2-4 eight-ounce cups) a few hours prior to collection
-If there are certain foods you are specifically curious about testing, you can eat them 2-3 days prior to collection the sample (however, the test will still pick up other foods that have not been eaten)
How do I mail this sample back (US)?
Place all contents & forms back in the pre-paid envelope and call for pickup: 1-800-463-3339 (mention you have a prepaid overnight envelope). Do NOT put kits in a FedEx drop box.
Every product on this website was formulated with the mindset that my family and I would be using each nutritional supplement.
When you go into a product formulation knowing that your own family and children will use these products it ensures there will never be any compromise…
Plus, I want only the best for my online community and private practice clients. And, since people come to me for results after failing many times in the past, I have to know that every one of these products are truly the best of the best and will help people on their healing journey…
It’s important to understand that not all nutritional supplements are created equal.
For example, in a Functional Medicine practice only methylated or highly bio-available vitamins and minerals will be used in order to make it easy for the body to utilize.
Not only do these formula get better results, but they do not build up as toxins in the body or simply get excreted in the urine like most cheaper forms…
I made a promise to myself when I first started formulating the EquiLife line that I would not compromise on quality…
Even if a product cost me a few more dollars, I would not take any shortcuts in order to make a product for less.
This has enabled EquiLife to set itself apart even in the Functional Medicine community as a leader in the best ingredients used.
Besides never compromising on using the highest quality ingredients available when formulating our nutritional supplements, I make sure that each batch is 3rd Party tested for contaminants like:
This then allows me to be confident when consuming these products myself and knowing that the dosages are what is stated on the bottle.
Again, this leads to better user results and happier customers and wellness clients!
Another way in which the Equilibrium Nutrition supplement line sets itself apart as the leader in the industry is by always producing fresh orders every couple of months.
Our products do not sit in warehouses for over a year…
Instead we maintain freshness with smaller continuous batch orders along with climate controlled fulfillment centers.
This guarantees purity, freshness, and taste.
This is a difference you can both see and taste with every bottle!
At EquiLife we strive to provide the fastest and most convenient shipping available!
Since I know you’re going to absolutely love and see & feel the difference by using the Equi.Life supplement line I’ve formulated for my private practice, my family, and online community I'm happy to offer you my “Empty Bottle Guarantee!”
This means if you don’t see or feel the results you were looking for, or just don’t believe this was the absolute best product in its class that you’ve ever used, simply ship back the empty bottles, within 60 days of your purchase, for 100% of your product purchase price (not including S&H).
My team and I firmly believe in putting our clients and customers first, and we only want the best for you in your wellness, weight loss & anti-aging goals!
I just took the Food Sensitivity Test and plan to get it in the mail tomorrow. I am excited to see my results. The test was self explanantory and quite simple, just make sure to use the alcohol wipe and stroke pricked finger to increase blood flow for the sample. I needed one finger prick for all five circles!
Not the kind of test you take just one time though. My data has changed as I have been working on my health.
Everyone should do this lab test. Answered so many questions.
Love this test! So much easier than an Elimination Diet. And super simple to do at home. Highly recommend it.
There's no getting around me being afraid of the prick, but the gratitude I have for the test surpasses that. I took it with my 13 year old son.
