Chances are if you have found yourself on this website, I don’t have to tell you that your symptoms affect all areas of your life. They can cause missed work which leads to financial hardships. If you need to rest often, it can lead to less time with family which can be difficult for everyone to understand. Spouses, kids or friends may forget that you have this condition that affects you everyday and not understand why you can’t get out and do things.
Whether it's frequent/urgent diarrhea, joint pain, headaches/migraines, weight gain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), brain fog, fibromyalgia, fatigue/low energy, or psoriasis/eczema, these all have one thing in common...inflammation is the root cause. In fibromyalgia, inflammation causes neurological symptoms and pain receptor activation. In RA it causes tissue damage in the joints. In digestive conditions, inflammation causes smooth muscle contraction in the bowels. In migraines, it causes damage either to the vascular system or neurological system, or both. In skin conditions, inflammation also damages the vascular system and damage to blood vessels.
What Is Inflammation?
Inflammation is the result of our White Blood Cells (WBC) fighting an invader in the body. These invaders can be bacteria, viruses, or food. Most people are aware that processed foods cause inflammation, however healthy foods can also be a problem. It all starts in the digestive tract. If the gut lining becomes permeable (which means it gets little holes in it like a screen), then foods can get through the lining before they are fully digested. This is called leaky gut. These partially digested foods end up in the bloodstream where the WBC’s come and attack it. The WBC’s release something called mediators and these mediators are what cause inflammation in different parts of the body. What makes this even more interesting is that different foods cause inflammation in everyone. Even though broccoli might be healthy for me, it might be the food that your body sees as an invader.
Comprised of a series of tests and based on your unique biochemical makeup, a treatment plan is tailored to your needs.
All food-induced inflammatory reactions involve a mediator release from the WBC’s. These mediators (such as cytokines, leukotrienes and prostaglandins) when released cause inflammation. The test we use measures how much inflammation is created when these mediators are released. It tests 170 different foods and chemicals and tells how much inflammation is created by each individual item. Highly reactive foods will be red, moderately reactives foods yellow, and low reactive foods green.
It’s not enough to say just avoid your yellow and red reactive foods. WHY? Because this test looks at 170 different foods and chemicals. But there’s something like 40,000 different foods and chemicals at the grocery store! There’s no test that can measure that many items! Just because you eliminate your yellows and reds does not mean that foods you eat that were not tested are non-reactive! That is what our approach addresses.
We create a plan based on only your non-reactive foods. Those would be your lowest reactive green foods. When you eat only non-reactive foods, or foods that don’t release mediators and cause inflammation, your immune system calms down and the gut is allowed to heal. As the gut heals, the lining which was like a screen starts to close in those holes until food can’t get through anymore.
Testing for Micronutrient Deficiencies
To ensure the gut can heal properly and quickly we test for micronutrient deficiencies. Virtually all metabolic and developmental processes that take place in the body requires micronutrients, this includes healing your gut. What makes this test unique is that it measures the functional level and capability of micronutrients in your white blood cells taking a person’s biochemical individuality into account. Armed with this information we can give your body what it needs to repair itself and eliminate your symptoms.
Once your symptoms are eliminated, you introduce one tested food every 24 hours. You eat it once and see if you have any symptoms. If not, it’s a safe food. If you do have symptoms you know that’s not a safe food for you. Once your gut heals and the immune system is calm, symptoms occur quickly so you can evaluate one new food every day. And then we can create a list of safe and unsafe foods from the list of foods we tested. Then you start introducing foods that were not tested. Again, you try 1 food every 24 hours. And we educate you on how to expand your diet safely on your own even after you’ve completed the program.
We typically see a significant reduction in symptoms within 7-10 days. Clients report they feel better on a daily or weekly basis the longer they are on the diet. At 6 weeks, most clients report symptoms are resolved. We continue to work with you throughout the year to measure your progress and transition you into a life-long solution. After this year you have all the tools you need to maintain this on your own, however you still have lifetime access to our community where you can receive as well as give help to others.
