Clinical studies have confirmed that approximately seven out of ten people have significant immune reaction to food without knowing it.
Knowing if your body accepts or rejects certain common foods is a must for keeping the body healthy and strong.
Don’t look for allergic reactions
Unfortunately immune reactions are not like typical allergies, where you have clear reactions such as sneezing, runny nose or hives.
Immune reactions can masquerade themselves in the most unexpected ways and cause or exacerbate many seemingly food-unrelated conditions such as: eczema, asthma, weight issues, sinusitis, colitis, constipation, fatigue, fibromyalgia, IBS, migraines, hyperactivity, indigestion, depression, anxiety, arthritis, and muscle aches, or high blood pressure among others.
Weight loss problem?
People who do not know about their food allergies unnecessarily suffer from health problems for years or take damaging drugs to manage their condition, however, the solution may be extremely simple. Start with taking the test. It is a finger prick, not a skin scratch test. You will send the sample to the laboratory from home.
Once you know your allergies, your road to recovery becomes much simpler. Correcting the diet according to the results usually produce significant improvement in immune system and reduce overall inflammation within 2-4 weeks.
How do drop a few pounds quickly?
Many people have managed to take themselves off pain or other medications or lost weight quickly after adjusting their diets accordingly.
Let’s go over some examples.
Some time ago I had a youngster coming in with his mom. He was always sick and he frequently coughed. Finally he was given a diagnosis of asthma and was put on puffers. Mom was an intelligent woman and knew about side-effect of puffers, so she looked for a more health-oriented solution and ended up in our clinic. I suggested a food allergy test. Mom agreed with eagerness and later we found out it was a great idea. Within just a few days on elimination diet Justin started to sleep better, and breathe better. He no longer got sick or coughed. Shortly after he was taken off puffers. Mom is happy. Justin is just a normal healthy boy now.
Jolanta was a classic case of stubborn weight. 5’5” tall and weighing 180lb. She had difficulty losing weight, yet tried very hard in the past by going on many promising diets. They produced nothing much except for yo-yo effect. I told her about food allergies and a possibility that she may have some hidden weight-loss blocks. Hesitantly she did the test and two weeks into changing the diet she admitted she felt great! She lost the bloating, sensation of heaviness, and her waist shrunk. In fact, she lost 8.5lb in two weeks. No, it wasn’t fat, just unnecessary water in the body. Water that accumulated due to her inflammatory diet. I asked her if her statement “I cannot lose weight” holds true now… and she said “I did not know that way…”
Well you may be getting excited about your new discovery, but you may start wondering: “Why hasn’t my doctor ever suggested this test?” To answer this question consider this:
Your doctor may not even know it
Immune reaction to food is not an unknown concept to your doctor, yet an integration of this information in a medical setting provides a major challenge. Current medical system operates in areas of specialization. There is a different specialist for a lungs, different specialist for skin, and different specialist for immune system.
It is hard to expect that an immune system specialist will take care of eczema, asthma, or hyperactivity. And you will most likely not go with your arthritis to a skin specialist or immune specialist. Yet a joint specialist will not do food allergy test, because s/he deals with joints, not allergies.
Look for the source, not the effect
The second reason why this food allergy test is seldom used in medical settins is the fact that the system focuses on symptoms, not causes. For example, a lung specialist will agree that asthma is an inflammatory disease, yet s(he) will not be interested in answering the question where the inflammation comes from.
That’s why an asthmatic will get an anti-inflammatory drug, rather than an investigation of causes. The problem is that if you do not know the cause, you will need to stay on that anti-inflammatory drug for the rest of your life.
Food allergy that involves immune reaction is a major contributing cause of inflammation and regardless of the tissue affected: the lungs, skin, joints, or other, one should always test for food allergies. The test is very simple, yet the results are extremely powerful. You can order the test kit here.
