The ImuPro test is a way to improve your health through simple dietary changes. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? We hear this on a daily basis from the people we test. Do you find that you suffer from IBS, headaches, fatigue, post nasal drip, eczema etc, etc?
All of these symptoms and many more could be the result of a food intolerance. By avoiding the food that your body is reacting to you will be able to eliminate your symptoms. Food intolerances develop because the gut wall becomes leaky or porous. This means that the food proteins can leak through the gut wall and be found in the blood stream where they are seen as foreign by the immune system and the immune system attacks them just as it would attack a cold or flu virus. The immune system is now attacking the food you are eating on a daily basis. When this happens an inflammatory cascade is set into motion and immune complexes develop. These immune complexes can settle in organs and tissues and cause any number of chronic complaints.
The ImuPro test is a specialised blood test that can detect the immune systems response to food – it looks for IgG antibodies. By knowing exactly which foods the body is attacking you can then avoid these foods and stop this attacking process from occurring and thereby eliminate your symptoms. The production of these IgG antibodies by the body is often delayed so it can be hard to know exactly which foods are causing your symptoms. Eg. You might have a splitting headache on a Wednesday and wonder what you have eaten that day to cause it when it was in fact the milkshake that you ate on the Sunday. This is why the ImuPro test is so helpful. It will tell you exactly which foods to avoid and for how long.
The other exciting thing about IgG antibodies is once you have avoided the foods for a certain period of time you may then reintroduce this food, so you do not have to avoid the food forever. If you have any of the symptoms listed above or would like some more information please contact:
