Sorry for the late response but to be honest with you I have been too busy enjoying life and am hardly on the computer at all.
Not sure if I can explain it well enough but the jist of food sensitivity is that when one eats something that their body is sensitive to, the body will react in one way or another. It isn't just limited to the digestive system and IBS. The food that we eat is distributed all over our bodies once it is digested, including our muscles. In my case my fibro was causing alot of muscle and joint pain. Once I eliminated the food and chemicals that my body was sensitive to, I no longer had pain in my muscles and joints. I was sensitive to many of the foods that I ate on a regular basis so it took a while for my body to eliminate them all from my muscles and such. But it did happen and I have felt so much better ever since. I also feel healthier because as I said before, I only eat natural food that my body doesn't react to and nothing with all those preservatives and such.
I also have Myasthenia Gravis so I have to be careful of doing too much but to answer your question, yes I am able to do things such as pulling weeds and not have fibro pain after doing so.
Now the cost of the test is , if I can remember correctly, around $250.00 but I had put so much money into doctor appointments and medications that I was willing to spend that amount on this just to see if it would help me and it paid off tenfold.
I have stated this before and I will say it again, that I am not claiming this to be a miracle cure for Fibro but it really worked for me and the overall health benefits are a plus as well. It doesn't hurt to eat healthy and your body will love you for that.
I hope I answered all of your questions. If not, I can give you the website that I went to and it has a little more information. I don't think I am allowed to post it here but I can send it to you in an e-mail if you want.
