The best “test” for reactions is elimination of suspect items. The limitation with this approach is that irritants can interact. That is, exposure to one item will not cause symptoms, but when two mildly reacting foods are present, together they trip a response by overloading the system. In “load” reactions, a little is tolerable, but too much of one or a combination of two or more causes trouble. Blood testing may then be useful, but the problem in load allergies is usually a leaking gut.
Rather than eliminating additional foods, the answer is repairing the underlying leak.
This test determines if a person has Leaky Gut Syndrome. Leaky Gut Syndrome is associated with allergies, pain, inflammation, Crohn’s disease, and other illnesses.
The small intestine has the paradoxical dual function of being a digestive/ absorptive organ for nutrients as well as a powerful barrier against the excessive absorption of bacteria, food antigens and large molecules. Increased permeability of the intestinal mucosal barrier can swell the number of toxins & antigens entering the bloodstream and lead to an overly sensitized immune system in some individuals. Decreased permeability, on the other hand, appears as a fundamental cause of malnutrition, malabsorption and failure to thrive. A number of clinical disorders are associated with both conditions.
