– Just do my Hail Marys. Okay, I’m good. Just do it, just do it. (screaming)
Oh, God. (upbeat music) Today, Chloe and I are going
to test our food sensitivities. – Using this at-home kit by EverlyWell. So, for the last kind of two years, I’ve had a lot of digestion issues. – I get constant bloating. I feel like I always am on my period. – I get cramps and stuff
I don’t wanna go into, and I can’t figure out what
kind of food does it to me. – It doesn’t matter what I eat. It only happened eight months ago. – I’ve been to the
doctor about it recently because I was just like, this
isn’t normal after two years. They basically say that
I probably have IBS, fun! – I have tried probiotics, seeing if it’s an imbalance
of my hormones, lab work, checked to see if I have
a bacterial infection. – My doctor told me to
try the elimination diet, which you take out certain
foods and then, you know, see if you get better. I have taken things out of my diet, I’ve been vegan for a
while, I’ve been vegetarian. So, this test just does it in a few days, you get your results online. – It tests 96 foods you
could be sensitive to. – I don’t know how accurate it’s gonna be, but I’m super excited to try it. – The only thing about
it is that there’s no doctor supervision with this. – This is a very convenient thing that you can just buy online and then just prick your finger at home, which I don’t mind about. Sheila’s freaking out. – I’m gonna have Chloe help me. I hate needles. I literally have to hold on to something every time I get a shot. I need a lollipop by the end of this. Look what just came in the mail. Super excited. It tests for 96 foods. – A bunch of dairy, fruits,
grains, seafood, seeds and nuts, spice, and vegetables, and meat. The fact that it has healthy
stuff on here, too… I know that sometimes
I’ll eat healthy stuff and it still affects me.
– Yeah. – It’s not just me
eating a bunch of cheese and feeling gross, you know?
(laughing) – Oh, I feel like a doctor with all this. Oh, these are bandaids
for the blood (echoing). – This is well packaging, actually. You have to register
your kit, which we did. There’s a biohazard bag,
blood collection card. – Oh, we have to drink a glass
of water 30 minutes before. – Did you do that?
– No. – Go on, it says squeeze
the base of your finger with your free hand
(screaming) to produce more blood flow. – I’m sweating right now. I’m gonna need your help.
– I’m here. I’m here.
(laughing) – Okay.
– Alright. – Let’s go drink some water.
– Woo hoo! – Chloe, you’re up first. – Oh, I have to hang my hand down. – Yes, hang ’em down, hang ’em down. – By my side. I have to clean the site. I just washed my hands,
was that not enough? Wipe, wipe, wipe, wipe, wipe. Here’s the collection thing. Oh, okay, okay, you just twist that off. Place your finger against a firm surface. I’m gonna use my knee. Press down on the yellow button until an audible click is heard. – I can’t look, I really can’t. – This is making me scared
’cause you’re scared. – No, it’s okay, you’ll be fine. – Three, two, one.
(clicking) Oh, that was nothing. Okay, I’m barely bleeding, actually. Okay, it’s coming, it’s coming. Dude, come on. It literally won’t drip. I’m gonna have to do this again. One, two, three (groans). That one hurt a little more. Yes!
– Oh my God, you got it. – I’ve never tried to bleed before. This is really weird. – I really thought it was
gonna be gushing blood. – Yeah, me too. I’m gonna do an extra one just because I don’t know
if this is good enough. I did it, it took me like
an hour, but I did it. – I’m dangling my arms, and
Chloe’s gonna be my nurse. Okay, I can do this. Okay, just wipe it off. Just do my Hail Marys. Okay, I’m good. Just do it, just do it. Oh, God, oh, god, is it bleeding? It’s just a waiting game now. – I don’t think these
things pierce deep enough. I think that’s the problem. That’s very small (laughs). – Gotta use my other finger ’cause there wasn’t enough blood. – Good?
– Wait, yeah. – Ready?
– Wait, yeah, hold on. – Okay. – [Sheila] That one definitely hurt. – [Chloe] Oh, really, I’m sorry. Maybe that means it’s deeper. – Come out, come out.
– Yes, yes! Yeah, nice.
– Oh, (bleep) – Nice, that’s fine.
– Oh, okay. – Now we’re going to the post office and mail it to the laboratory, and hopefully we hear back
within five business days. – Yay!
– Yay! So, today is the day. We have our results back. I’m about to open them. I’m really kinda nervous, honestly. – I like how they email it to you because it’s super accessible. – So, I’m gonna click on my results. Low reactivity foods should
be considered largely… This is really confusing,
just so you know. (sighs) I understand. Okay, I finally understand this after like five minutes looking at it, and I’m a little bit disappointed because I have zero high
reactivity and zero moderate. I only have 22 mild and then 74 low. which is basically
nothing, like no result. – So, there’s no high for
me, zero moderate activity. I only have 19 mild and 77 low reactivity. I wish I would’ve gotten something to kind of point me towards
the right direction, and now I feel like I have
to start back on square one. – I really really thought I would get at least some high and moderate, and that kind of worries me
because what is wrong me, then? What is going on? – Alright, so for mild reactivity, the first one is actually pork. I don’t normally eat pork,
so that’s really interesting. – My top one is a pear. I never eat them anyway,
so I guess that’s good. My second highest is sole, the fish. So random. – [Sheila] Yeast bakers, so that’s bread. – [Chloe] Cottage cheese, which I hate. – I am shocked that
black pepper is in here. I use black pepper on everything. – Wheat, which I do eat quite a lot of. – I had a feeling I would’ve
been reactive to cow’s milk because dairy doesn’t
sit well with my stomach. – Now I’m just like, cool, I’m mildly reactive to a bunch of crap I barely eat anyway like kelp. – So, the things that I
love like bread and beer are things I probably should try to avoid. – I mean, it’s not the test’s
fault, the test did its job. I’m just disappointed that
this isn’t more helpful for me. – I feel like I have to start back and do some detective
work and really figure out what’s causing all this bloating. I wonder sometimes if
bloating is caused by stress. – I will try and cut these
things out, I suppose, and see if it helps. At least it gives me a
bit of a thing to try, like a little bit of a guide. The good thing, I guess, which
I’m not even appreciating, is that I haven’t got that
many food sensitivities. – I think that it’s worth doing this because at least you’ll be informed if it food or if it isn’t. (upbeat music)
