Food Sensitivities IgG4:

$2,995

Adults and children who are interested in finding out which foods to avoid for optimal health. Know what to eat for your goals

Blood test, done by a small pinprick to the finger.

People can take years to weed out certain foods that make you feel tired lethergic or bloated.

We’re all familiar with rapid acting food allergies, such as those caused by peanuts, or shellfish, and if you have that type of allergy, you almost certainly know about it already. This test does not measure the rapid reactor type of antibody, called IgE (immunoglobulin E). Instead, the Food Safe test measures a class of slower reacting antibodies called IgG4 (immunoglobulin G4). IgG is the most common type of antibody in the blood, reactions to eaten food of which are indicative of slower-type food intolerances.

Food specific IgG4 levels increase in response to food antigens in the bloodstream. Not surprisingly, increased IgG4 levels are most often associated with foods eaten regularly, such as dairy, wheat, and eggs. IgG4 responses to foods often cause delayed symptoms, including, but not limited to, joint or muscle pain, chronic low back pain, bedwetting, recurrent bladder or upper respiratory infections, chronic headaches, fatigue, hives, eczema, psoriasis, canker sores, ulcerative colitis, gallbladder attacks, heartburn, and indigestion. Since IgG4 reactions often occur hours or days after particular foods are consumed, they can be difficult to recognise and correlate to the offending food. The reactions can be subtle or severe, and if not identified and eliminated, may lead to chronic symptoms and chronic degenerative conditions.

Ideally retested after 16 weeks to see how certain food groups can be reintroduced

 

Ultimate Body Composition:

How is this test done:

By cotton swab taken from the inside of your cheek, therefore non-invasive.

What you will get:

Manage hormonal and nutrient imbalances associated with localised fat distributions that prevent optimal body composition. Maximise your wellbeing by tracking biomarkers for thyroid function, inflammation, lipid profile, and nutrients. Ultimate Body Composition Biomarkers provides an essential contextual tool and marker for persons aiming for optimal body composition and performance by identifying localised areas of fat storage on body associated with imbalances in hormonal levels, facilitating the possibility of remedial intervention. Used as a preventative tool, the test also serves as a powerful early indicator of insulin resistance and risks for metabolic syndrome and diabetes.

GI Map:

$4,750

Who is this test for:

Adults and children who have gastrointestinal issues. Progression from Food Safe.

How is this test done:

This is a take home test as it requires a stool sample.

What you will get:

Gut health is heavily linked to digestion issues, autoimmune reactions and diseases, mood and fatigue. Unfortunately modern day fast pace stressful life, eating the wrong foods and genetics can all play a role.

The GI-MAP™ (GI-Microbial Assay Plus) stool test utilises cutting edge, FDA-approved technology to provide a true DNA/PCR based stool analysis which provides actionable information to the clinician regarding the microbiota and how it relates to many inflammatory, autoimmune, metabolic, cardiovascular, and other chronic diseases. This technology has high sensitivity, specificity and a rapid turnaround.

The GI pathogens include bacteria, parasites and viruses. Continuing with this platform, the GI-MAP measures opportunistic organisms, normal flora, fungi, parasites and antibiotic resistance genes. And the Plus refers to immunologic markers and gut enzymes for GI health and function including SIgA, Elastase, Lactoferrin and Anti-gliadin testing.

DNA/PCR techniques also allow for the measurement of antibiotic resistant genes and virulence factors that contribute to pathogenicity. Both are used to help determine clinical significance and the most effective treatments.
