Food can bring some of life’s great pleasures. For us, it provides a reason to gather with family and friends, allows us to explore cultures and flavors different from ours, and serves as a creative outlet from the doldrums of daily life. That said, food is not always our friend. We’ve all heard the famous saying, “You are what you eat” and, in a perfect world, we could eat whatever we want, whenever we want. Unfortunately, in today’s day and age of processed foods, dietary restrictions, and a seemingly endless list of potential allergies, that’s just not the case.
Well, Miami foodies, Relax SPA – a Coconut Grove-based acupuncture and medical aesthetic practice that specializes in Traditional Chinese Medicine, skin rejuvenation and beauty treatments – is here to help. Their new Food Sensitivity Test is designed to detect the types of foods that your body is compatible with, and vice versa.
Also known as a Body Transformation Program, the non-invasive test (just a quick finger prick) tests your blood for 96 potential allergens that include a variety of dairy products, fruits and vegetables, meats, fish, grains, legumes, nuts, and other miscellaneous food items. Upon receipt of the lab results, Dr. Alberto LopezAcosta, founder of Relax SPA and Doctor of Oriental Medicine, will provide a review of dietary change recommendations and suggestions of foods that should be eliminated from your diet. Your personalized results also include recommended vitamins and supplements that are uniquely suited to you. Additionally, the program includes a series of four B12 and MIC (fat burner) injections, four body analysis tests, and nutritional counseling.
So, while we’re not blindly jumping on the whole “food intolerance” bandwagon, if there was a way to make subtle adjustments to your eating habits that could rid you of some chronic ailments like pesky headaches, ear infections, skin irritations, arthritis, and a general sense of sluggishness, wouldn’t it be worth it?
Our friends over at Relax SPA are extending an exclusive offer for MMTM readers. Dr. LopezAcosta is offering 20% off all Food Sensitivity Test purchases as well as 10% off all other treatments (acupuncture, mesotheraphy, hydro-infusion facials, laser theraphies, etc.). What are you waiting for?
