my naturopath recommends that I take a blood test to see if I have any food allergies that could aggravate my acne. the test is rather expensive though so i'm not sure if i should do it. has anyone take a blood test like this and did the results indicate anything that was able to help you?

In general, if you believe that you have a food allergy, it would be TRES IMPORTANTE to get yourself tested. If not just for your acne.

I would think that knowing about a food allergy would be a very good hing for your health. The other way to find out is to avoid one type of food or another for a few weeks and see how you feel. (A friend of mine thought that stomach pain and gas was normal. Turns out, she's allergic to dairy, as a lot of people are. Her tummy is all better now.)

How much is the test? Does insurance cover it? Are you able to shop around?
