Health Journey: Everlywell

health Aug 31, 2023

I was recommended Everlywell by a friend who's been on his own health journey. Often times we geek out about testing, activity tracking, food, and exercise so I was interested when he mentioned having eliminated foods to help with his sweating. TMI but I sweat BUCKETS; exercise makes me look like I swam in my clothes and I "run hot" pretty much all the time so I was interested in seeing what I might be able to tune.

The process was pretty simple; I did the Food Sensitivity Comprehensive Test and they give you a great look at what potentially impacting you along with recommendations on how to do some elimination testing. For my nerdy self, they also provide the raw numbers but it wasn't easy to export or download them so I had to manually copy them down into my own tracking system (Excel, go figure) so I could sort and such.

My results showed I only had a significant issue with chickpeas (bu-bye hummus) but I was mildly reactive to about 30 things. So I've decided to eliminate everything that had a reactivity score above 20 (excluding butter and garlic because they're low reactivity and necessary for food to taste good at all). Give it 30 days and then I might start adding things back to see what makes me feel bad.
