I’m writing this short blog to share some fascinating and very disturbing test results I just received.
I really do practice what I preach. This means I eat a very clean diet, use 90% organic and natural beauty and cleaning products, as well practice good self-care to manage stress.
But with a past history of chronic GI issues, I too get occasionally challenged with recurring symptoms that remind me I need to examine what might be causing these flare-ups.
So every year I test instead of guess, to get a bottom line interpretation of what’s happening inside my body. My recent test results surprised me. A LOT!
Mystery number one.
My GI MAP showed I’m having a reaction to gliadin (the protein in wheat), although I’ve been 100% gluten free for over 10 years. It also showed I had a lot of inflammation as well as a suppressed immune system. To investigate further I did a food sensitivity test to see what other foods might be contributing to these findings. This is what I found. . .
Mystery number two.
The results of my ELISA/LRA food and chemical sensitivity test presented even more disturbing results. Out of almost 400 items tested, the good news is I only had 16 total immune reactors. This means that I might be currently ingesting these items OR if I do ingest them, I will have a strong immune reaction to them.
7 of the 16 are CHEMICALS!
