IgG Food Intolerance Testing

By  Dr. Jason Porter - at  September 4, 2008    

A 25 year study reveals that 95% of the population has what is known as a Type II toxic reaction or IgG response to common everyday foods that we eat regularly. Unfortunately, the foods that cause this toxic shock vary widely according to genetics, lifestyle, environment, and individual weakness. In addition, many IgG  reactions are delayed reactions, so they are very difficult to detect on our own.

More than 75 symptoms are associated with food toxicities. Perfectly healthy foods can be virtual poison to our particular system. The latest trendy diets may be good for general information, but everyone’s system is different, so you want to find out which foods are toxic to our particular system. Eliminating food IgG response allows us to  be healthier and more energetic, and alleviate many unexplained and chronic symptoms.

There are two types of reactions, Type I and Type II. Type I toxic reactions or IgE reactions, are obvious. You know when you have one because your body suffers a notable and almost instant reaction. Type II reactions are not immediate, but delayed reactions, making them almost impossible to detect without sophisticated testing. Different foods break down at different speeds, causing different toxic reactions depending upon the food and your personal body chemistry. Therefore, without scientific testing, it is very difficult to judge which foods cause which reactions and when.

Testing begins with a simple blood draw. Once the results are in, the lab generates a comprehensive report detailing your toxic foods.. Sometimes people find that, while they may only have a few food toxicities, these make up foods that they eat regularly. Therefore, if you are allergic to pasta and you eat it four or five times per week, you could be poisoning yourself four or five times per week.

The most notable point to make here is how much better you’ll feel. Some people rid themselves of lifelong chronic conditions like migraines which are almost always caused by a food toxicity. Some people feel a tremendous boost in energy, sex drive and a general increase in mental acuity. Others notice that their constant irritability is gone. Testing includes education in how and what to eat for the best results.

A Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) article revealed that more than 75% of the money spent on health care is spent on chronic conditions. Our research indicates that a great deal of these chronic conditions are the direct result of food toxicities; easily treatable by simply removing the foods from your diet.

With only 270 million people in this country more than 2.9 billion prescriptions are written every year, generating more than $131.9 billion for the pharmaceutical companies. Many of these prescriptions mask the conditions caused by food toxicity and rarely lead to a cure.The following conditions have improved with food IgG testing and elimination: Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Arthritis, Autism, Asthma, Candidiasis, Celiac, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Depression, Diabetes, Digestive Disorders, Ear Infections, Eczema, Fibromyalgia, GERD, G.I. Disorders, Headaches & Migraines, Heartburn, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Joint & Muscle Pain, Leaky Gut, Mental Fatigue, Molds, Obesity, Poor Memory, Psoriasis, Sinusitis, Skin Disorders, Weight Loss, and Yeast Infections.
