FOOD ALLERGY PANEL
There are two types of reactions Type I and Type II. Type I toxic reactions or IgE reactions, are the commonly known anaphylactic reactions from foods like shellfish and peanuts. You know when you have one because your body suffers a notable and almost instant reaction. Whereas, Type II (IgG) reactions are not immediate, but delayed reactions up to 1-3 days later, making them almost impossible to detect without sophisticated testing. Different foods are metabolized at different speeds, causing different toxic reactions depending upon the food and your personal body chemistry. Therefore, without scientific testing, it is very difficult to judge which foods cause which reactions and when.
More than 75 symptoms are associated with food toxicities. Perfectly healthy foods can be poisonous to your particular system. The latest trendy diets may be good for general information but everyone’s system is different, so you want to find out which foods are toxic to your individual system. This will help you be healthier and more energetic than ever before and alleviate many unexplained and chronic symptoms.
Testing begins with a simple blood draw. We work with labs that utilize ELISA (Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay Technique) to measure serum antibodies in the blood. Once the results are in, the lab generates a comprehensive report detailing your toxic foods. Sometimes people find that while they may only have a few food toxicities, these foods make up what they eat regularly. Therefore, if you are allergic to pasta and you eat it four times per week, you could be poisoning yourself four times per week.
Next, we recommend avoiding the offending allergens for 90 days. This will support your digestive system as it heals. Nutritional supplements will be included to soothe the irritation of the digestive system and speed healing. After 90 days, symptoms will be reassessed. Avoided food allergens may slowly be reintroduced at this time and symptoms will continue to be monitored.
The most notable point to make here is how much better you will feel. Some people rid themselves of lifelong chronic conditions like migraines, which are almost always caused by a food toxicity. Some people feel a tremendous boost in energy, sex drive and a general increase in mental acuity. Others notice that their constant irritability is gone. Testing includes education in how and what to eat for the best results.
A Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) article revealed that more than 75% of the money spent on health care is spent on chronic conditions. Our research indicates that a great deal of these chronic conditions are the direct result of food toxicities; easily treatable by simply removing the foods from your diet.
With only 270 million people in this country more than 2.9 billion prescriptions are written every year, generating more than $131.9 billion for the pharmaceutical companies. Many of these prescriptions mask the conditions caused by food toxicity and rarely lead to a cure.
