Did you know the gut is largely responsible for our immune system and overall well-being?
Experts say our gut health affects everything from skin conditions to mental health and even obesity. It’s believed that supporting gut health will be one of the most important medical goals in the 21st century. That’s why at Inside Out Aesthetics, we want to support you by offering food sensitivity testing in Scottsdale to help you understand what’s happening in your gut so you can feel your best!
During your consultation, we will review your medical history, listen to your goals, and address any questions you have before determining your individual treatment plan. We offer complimentary consultations in our office and online through our virtual consultation tool.

In addition to testing for food sensitivities, we highly recommend testing for leaky gut.
Why is it important to test for leaky gut? Leaky gut is usually a main root cause of food sensitivities, inflammation and autoimmune disease. By knowing if a patient has leaky gut, and how bad it is, we can take specific steps to treat it and retest to make sure its getting better. Once leaky gut is healed, many of these symptoms go away and autoimmune can even be put into remission in some cases.
Food sensitivity testing can be very useful to help prioritize an elimination or rotation diet.
Usually removing foods that the body has produced antibodies for will alleviate symptoms because the source of inflammation is removed.
If you have any of the following symptoms, you may be a good candidate for the Food Sensitivity test.
- Abdominal pain
- Brain fog
- Rashes, such as eczema
- Nausea and vomiting
- Skin itchiness and redness
- Bronchitis and asthma-like symptoms
- Musculoskeletal joint pain
- Muscle stiffness and swelling
How it works
Food Sensitivity Testing
Food sensitivities can be a trigger for common inflammatory symptoms that affect the gastrointestinal, neurological, integumentary (skin), connective tissue/joints, and other body systems. At Inside Out Aesthetics, we work with Vibrant Wellness to offer peptide-level testing which ‘zooms in’ on the individual peptide fragments of proteins in order to test for the full array of reactions to each of the 180 optional tested foods.
