This test involves your blood serum being analysed against 90 common trigger foods (refer below) to determine precisely which individual foods could be contributing to underlying low grade inflammation and contributing to your uncomfortable symptoms.
A specialised laboratory performs a reliable diagnostic test (ELISA) to measure IgG antibodies to 90 foods in your blood. Based on the results, the foodstuffs are then categorised into three groups:
- Not elevated
- Highly elevated
Allergy or Intolerance?
The terms “food allergy” and “food intolerance” are sometimes used interchangeably, but are in fact quite different.
Food Allergy – A true allergy is an acute immune response (IgE antibody) to a food or other substance. The reaction is usually immediate with symptoms including difficulty breathing, swelling of the tongue or lips, skin rashes, hives, swollen throat, water and itchy eyes, or in severe cases anaphylaxis. Common food allergies are eggs, nuts, milk and shellfish.
Please Note: the ImuPro IS NOT AN ALLERGY TEST. If you experience symptoms of an allergy please refer to a qualified allergist
Food Intolerance – A food intolerance involves an immune response (IgG antibody) and are a lot more common than traditional allergies. Typical symptoms include digestive problems (IBS, bloating, stomach pains, diarrhoea, constipation, weight gain), tiredness, fatigue, headaches, skin conditions, sore joints and depression.
The offending food causes a defence reaction by the immune system and if the food continues to be eaten the symptoms can be very unpleasant and, if left untreated, can lead to serious issues down the track.
You may have food intolerances if you suffer from the following symptoms…
- weight problems
- flatulence, bloating, diarrhoea or irritable bowel syndrome,
- feel lethargic after meals
- migraine, chronic fatigue
- inflammatory skin conditions or itching
- You suspect you might have a gluten (wheat) intolerance
Which foods are analysed?
The ImuPro Basic test involves analysing 9 common foods including gluten, dairy, soy, yeast and eggs. Click Here for a a full list, or refer to bottom of page.
What does the ImuPro test involve?
It is quite easy to take the ImuPro test. The test involves a blood sample which will be sent to a specialised lab where it will be analysed. In just a few simple steps, you will have your ImuPro results emailed directly to you.
Your ImuPro Basic test includes…
- Individual analysis of 90 most typical trigger foods such as meats, vegetables, fruits, cereals, dairy product and chicken eggs
- Comprehensive report with accurate results at a glance
- Your personal nutrition guidelines which include individual dietary recommendations based on your results. This equips you with the knowledge you need to ensure you are replacing your trigger foods with equally or more nutritious foods.
Can I be tested for more foods?
Yes, if you decide you would like more foods tested you can upgrade to the ImuPro 270 within 6 weeks of testing. Please contact us for Special Upgrade Price and more information email@example.com
