FOOD SENSITIVITY AND HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS

Food sensitivities are delayed reactions to specific foods that are triggered by IgG antibodies. They often stay undiscovered and can cause a lot of trouble in the body.
 

In an IgG reaction, the IgG antibodies attach themselves to the food antigen and create an antibody-antigen complex. These complexes are normally removed by special cells called macrophages.  However, if they are present in large numbers and the reactive food is still being consumed, the macrophages can’t remove them quickly enough. The food antigen-antibody complexes accumulate and are deposited in body tissues. Once in tissue, these complexes release inflammation causing chemicals, which may play a role in numerous diseases and conditions.

 

Why Test IgG Food Sensitivity?

Adverse reactions to foods are causing increasingly more health problems. Approximately 5% of the population is affected by a food allergy, which produces an immediate onset of the symptoms often associated with a ‘allergic response’. However, it is estimated that more than 40% of the population have a delayed type of reaction, which occurs several hours or days after a food is consumed The delay in the appearance of symptoms, makes it difficult to determine which foods could be considered as the trigger of the health problem.

Common symptoms include:

  • Chronic gastro-intestinal problems: irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, bloating

  • Skin problems: itching and psoriasis

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Hypertension

  • Headaches and migraines

  • Weight control

  • Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia

  • Attention deficit and/or Hyperactivity Disorder

  • Arthritis
