How we can improve our health by what we eat and what our Intolerances are!
For many, good health starts from having healthy intestines, with many diseases resulting from what is known as ‘leaky gut syndrome’. One of the causes of intestine disease can be food intolerance. As mature adults we are generally aware of any food allergies that we have but do we know of any food intolerances that we may now have? A Food Intolerance Test can indicate intolerances in our intestines caused by what we eat or drink.
“A Food Allergy causes an immune system reaction that affects numerous organs in the body. It can cause a range of symptoms. An allergic foodreaction can be severe or even life-threatening. In contrast, Food Intolerance symptoms are generally less serious and often limited to digestive problems”
The most common food allergy symptoms include itchy rash, difficulty breathing, nausea and diarrhoea, generally occurring almost immediately. Symptoms from food intolerance are generally not immediately apparent, are not severe but chronic, which can lead to complications. Our bodies release Immunoglobulin E antibody as a reaction against some types of foods, these symptoms are not only allergies but can affect other organs through the intestines.
Many people find themselves experiencing weight gain, irritable bowel or lack of energy. This can be due to the molecules of food which cause the intolerances, penetrate the walls of the intestines and trigger white blood cells to produce antibodies to interact with such food. Our bodies remember the specific food that triggers the reaction. When such food is consumed again, white blood cells will again produce antibodies causing more irritation to the walls of the intestine. Every time this particular food is consumed, white blood cells are triggered and in time the immunity is affected and creates inflammatory mediators which can induce inflammation in different organs including:-
- Inflamed arteries leading to swollen arteries and hypertension
- Inflamed brain can lead to insomnia, irritability and mood changes
- Inflamed joints can lead to joint pain, bone pain and rheumatoid arthritis
- Inflamed skin leads to rash, skin allergies and autoimmune disease
These chronic diseases can all start from an intolerance. A Food Intolerance Test will indicate which foods cause reactions that can lead to leaky gut syndrome. Most intestine related diseases are due to food intolerance so remember that good health starts from healthy intestines!
Having suffered from recurring bouts of joint inflammation, I was looking for the reasons and decided to try a Food Intolerance Test which is conducted with Bio-resonance equipment. For my test the specialist used a system from Rayonex directly based on the principle of Bio-resonance as conceived by Paul Schmidt. The procedure is very straightforward, non-invasive and does not require any preparation. You simply place your feet on 2 metal pads, in one hand hold an electrode and in the other a metal pen. Touching the pen on the test samples creates a reaction to a ‘Rayotensor’ held by the practitioner. This sensor oscillates in different directions indicating high, mild or low intolerances to a substance.
The client is circuited to the sensors by 2 computers. The energy emitted is measured against 5 high level frequencies via these computers. The rod will show a positive or negative response.
The basis of a Food Intolerance test is a collection of several hundred substances in glass phials. With the pointer pen you touch a prime substance on the left, if the sensor oscillates it indicates a positive or negative response. If positive, there are 3 more substances associated with this substance. If no reaction you proceed to the next major substance. For example, my test indicated intolerances for Milk, Yogurt, Cream, Butter, Hard Cheese, Pork, Sorbitol & Maltitol, White Wine, Garlic and Orange. The Bio-resonance machine also indicates conditions in your body and mine where primarily stomach inflammation, stomach acid and mild bowel inflammation. If you have particular foods that you consume regularly, take a sample with you to be tested.
Bio-resonance is non-invasive and whilst an increasing number of medical professionals are recognising the relevance of such a test, many, including the Pharmaceutical companies, do not. I believe that it is an interesting test which provides indications as to what is happening in one’s intestines. My practitioner suggested cutting out all the indicated substances for a few weeks to see how my body reacted. I could notice the difference and now when I forget and slide into poorer eating habits, I am reminded to which foods I have an intolerance. Remember a happy stomach leads to a happy body and a fuller lifestyle.
The Bio-resonance text that is tried was conducted at Surecell Clinic in Pratumnak, Pattaya. The 45-minute test costs THB.1,500 and I believe, is well worth the money!
