Looking to Test Food Intolerance Properly?
Our test for food intolerance will test 209 common foods and additives like preservatives, artificial sweeteners, thickeners, color dyes, and pesticides which can lead to chronic inflammation and increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut).
The best way to test food intolerance is to look at the IgG and IgA immune pathways. This will give you the answers you need to know for what foods and additives your body reacts to.
It is the proteins in food cause the most inflammation and symptoms in our bodies. For example, gluten and the proteins in the grains are a huge problem for many. When I have a client with extreme inflammation, inability to lose weight, to even cancer concerns, I want to eliminate the problematic proteins from their diet to reduce the symptoms and enhance their health.
Think about it: people who eat a vegan diet often remove protein from their diet because, without it, they have fewer symptoms. An excellent movie called “Forks Over Knives” thoroughly describes the problems with excess protein.
How do They Test for Food Intolerance?
Our way of running a test for food intolerance is very different from your traditional allergen test. Most food tests involve an antigen injected below the skin surface to see if your body reacts.
Our lab test food intolerance by checking for protein reactions from the foods in the IgG and IgA immune pathway. When you eat a food you are intolerant to, your body produces IgG or IgA antibodies to protect you from these problem foods. IgG indicates inflammation anywhere in the body and is the marker for foods inhibiting weight loss. IgA is the antibody for the gut lining and absorption. If you are intolerant to a particular food or group of foods, Igg and IgA antibodies are already circulating in your blood and can be detected in our food intolerance test.
Your test results will show the problematic foods in dark pink for a severe reaction or yellow for a moderate one. This way, you know if you need to eliminate or reduce the food from your diet.
What are the Three Most Common Food Intolerances?
- Casein or Lactose
The casein protein is one of the most complex proteins to digest and break down. When we eat the food, our body may react like it has an intolerance to it through adverse symptoms.
Some dairy intolerance symptoms are acne, eczema, itching, bloating, irritable bowel, diarrhea, brain fog, and respiratory symptoms like shortness of breath, joint pain, inflammation, and weight gain.
Gluten intolerance affects one out of seven people. Symptoms can vary from autoimmunity, shortness of breath, joint pain, bloating, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, hair loss, eczema, psoriasis, brain fog, irritability, insomnia, and pain.
Egg intolerance is seen in many people. Almost every food intolerance test I run shows an egg intolerance. Symptoms are skin inflammation, hives, eczema, itchy or runny nose, rhinitis, coughing, shortness of breath, bloating, nausea, or diarrhea.
Can You Trust Food Intolerance Tests?
If you have never heard my parsnip story, here it is. Many labs test food intolerance but I will only trust one lab. I have used other food intolerance labs in the past, but when I ran a double-blind study, they lost my trust, except this one.
I love parsnips; they look like white carrots and taste delicious. After discovering them, I would eat them with other root vegetables and greens once a week. But after my meal, I looked and felt inflamed in my gut.
I tried an elimination diet, but it did not pinpoint the problem food. I had to listen to my advice and test food intolerance properly on myself. I did a double-blind study and had to chuckle as parsnips were toxic.
At this point, I tossed any test kit from any other lab and only would use this lab for my client’s health. It never let me down. Parsnips are not an everyday food, and there was no way this lab knew I loved parsnips.
I sadly eliminated parsnips from my diet, and the inflammation disappeared, and I felt great again.
