Could Your Food Choices Be Making You Sick??
Unidentified food sensitivities, allergies, and intolerances can cause or trigger symptoms in people with IBS, migraines and fibromyalgia. Yet , for many reasons, diet remains one of the most neglected areas of treatment. You may already suspect that certain foods are causing problems for you. Or, you may have been searching for answers for years to your chronic pain, living on numerous pain medications that may only be treating symptoms, not the cause.
Newer technology, called Mediator Release Testing (MRT), is now available giving us the ability to test which foods may cause reactions leading to inflammatory symptoms. Older methods of food allergy testing were only 40% accurate. So, if you had traditional allergy testing in the past, chances are you don't have all the answers you need to get well. MRT can measure the body's white blood cell response (histamines, cytokines, etc.) to 150 different foods. This type 4 hypersensitivity testing has been shown, through research, to identify the food triggers that can cause migraines and IBS symptoms.
With MRT nutritional analysis and an ImmunoCalm elimination dietary plan to test and confirm results, you may, more easily, narrow down what is making you sick. Learning which foods cause reactions and your symptoms is the first step to feeling good again. Chronic physical distress can stand in the way of doing all the things we want to do and having the life we want.
