becoming increasingly common due to a variety of factors including our over-consumption of processed and genetically-modified foods, chronic stress, and long-term use of certain medications (e.g. heartburn medication and antibiotics) which can disrupt our digestive health. In contrast to classic food “allergies” such as peanuts allergies, food sensitivities can be harder to identify because symptoms may appear 24 to 72 hours after eating an offending food. To complicate matters, the symptoms of food sensitivities don’t always affect our digestion and may also include headaches, fatigue, skin concerns, joint pain, etc.
In order to help our patients identify both food allergies and sensitivities, we encourage them to book an in person appointment with Bruce Bonner, MASc, RNCP.
Registered Nutritionist, Bruce Bonner, can also conduct food sensitivity testing here in the Living Science Wellness Centre in his office. You will come and meet with Bruce for a one-hour initial appointment ($195+hst). We would then schedule a follow-up appointment to do the testing. He uses a machine EIS that uses electric pulses to determine your sensitivities. The cost of the testing is included in the appointment cost with Bruce - so it would be $195 for a one hour session and you would need a minimum of two sessions.
Question most often asked by clients and patients: Are these services covered by insurance?
May we suggest you check with your Insurance Company to determine if they cover a Registered Nutritionist (RNCP) as it is not usually covered. As each and every plan is different, we suggest you contact your insurance provider or human resources department to determine which specific services are covered by your company's plan.
