What does the Immune System do?

Medical science has now come to recognize that the immune system has defense as well as repair capabilities. The defense component of the immune system fights off the “invaders” that create disease, while the repair component plays an important role in restoring tissue and organs from damage that the disease state may have caused. If either the defense or repair function becomes overburdened or overstressed, immune dysfunction and disease may result. Recent studies have shown that when the defense elements or lymphocytes (type of white blood cells) of the immune system are burdened due to the effects of foreign antigens, the vital repair process suffers.

Which foods can I eat and how many people does this affect?

As your body reacts differently to each and every food, the food you eat each day will enhance proper body chemistry, or disrupt the correct balance. In fact, 95% of the people we've tested show that one or more foods they regularly eat cause a toxic reaction in their body. You might not even notice these toxic reactions. Most of them work at a cellular level, and may cause symptoms that you won't notice right away. Or, you might not EVER make the connection that what you're eating is actually damaging your body. So, nutritious foods you eat (like corn, soy, egg whites, green pepper, whey, or chicken, for example) may actually act like a poison in your body. When you eat foods that form toxins in your system, those foods can cause harmful, chronic problems with your health

Do I have a chronic autoimmune condition?

Chronic autoimmune conditions are usually characterized by:

• Inflammation
• focal or systemic swelling
• pain
• cumulative repair deficit

 

Examples of autoimmune conditions :

Diabetes Addison’s syndrome Thyroiditis Lupus (SLE) Eczema
Psoriasis Allergic migraine headaches Multiple sclerosis Asthma Myocarditis
Pericarditis Rheumatoid arthritis Connective tissue syndromes Interstitial Cystitis Ulcerative colitis (UC)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) Hepatitis Vasculitis Myofascial Pain Fibromyalgia (FM)
Chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS)

 

Are food sensitivities preventing you from achieving your ideal weight?

What are food sensitivities?

When you eat healthy foods your body will usually digest and assimilate them properly. Digestion breaks food down into simple components which can easily be absorbed and utilized nutritionally. The immune system “recognizes” these components as beneficial once they are absorbed into the bloodstream and does not react again them. In some cases foods are not completely digested and large complex components called macromolecules are absorbed into the bloodstream. The immune system does not “recognize” these macromolecules as beneficial and thus mounts a defense reaction against them. This is termed a Food Sensitivity which can result in a variety of symptoms including weight imbalance.

How to detect Food sensitivities:

It is almost impossible to pinpoint your sensitive foods on your own because the reactions you experience can occur from several hours to several days after the food is eaten. Now there is a simple blood test to test for these immune reactions. Your immune system’s defense reaction produces antibodies, called Immunoglobulin (IgG).
