Need Relief From Allergies? Test For Leaky Gut

Food Allergies or Intolerances May be a Result of Leaky Gut

Food IntolerancesA leaky gut refers to intestinal permeability, or the movement of toxins and undigested food particles through the intestinal lining into the bloodstream.

The intestinal lining can become damaged due to many factors:

  • persistent inflammation (often the case after vaccinations due to mercury or other toxic exposure),
  • overgrowth of Candida/yeast
  • parasites
  • chemicals in processed food
  • food dyes
  • enzyme deficiency
  • NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen),
  • prescription corticosteroids
  • diet of highly refined carbohydrates; cookies, pasta, bread and processed foods
  • chemotherapy and radiation treatments

All of these things are contributing factors to what is known as “leaky gut.”

Once the lining of the intestinal tract is compromised food particles begin to seep through into the bloodstream. These undigested proteins and fats can be seen by the immune system as foreign invaders to attack. This can result in autoimmune disorders, developed allergies, and inflamed organs and tissues of the body and brain. This is how we develop allergies to foods that we previously were not allergic to.

Available At-Home Testing for Leaky Gut

Uncomfortable procedures to check for gut inflammation are a thing of the past. Today there are convenient, at-home tests for multiple issues. Genova, at-home, diagnostic tests offer a multitude of various tests to assess numerous issues from inflammation to intestinal permeability, parasitology, and much more.

Tests can be done with a simple stool, urine, or saliva sample. They can give information about IgA antibodies (gluten allergens), fungus, and more.

These tests can be done from home, are mailed off to the lab, and results come to you via e-mail. There are qualified professionals available to help you with the results.

This Is What Can Trigger Allergies

Triggers for Allergies; Candida and Gut Dysbiosis

Due to the nature of biology, individuals react differently to various substances. One person may be greatly impacted by one product, and another not impacted at all. For the very sensitive, simply touching a substance with your hands may cause a severe reaction through absorption from the skin.

What Causes Allergic Reactions?

The cause of an allergic reaction may be biological, or due to a possible genetic weakness that was triggered by something in the environment. To learn more about this please listen to my podcast interview with epigenetics expert Dr. Bruce Lipton.

The intestinal system has a delicate balance that can be easily disrupted by many different aspects. Common issues can arise from an overgrowth of Candida/yeast, heavy metals, viruses, vaccines, food chemicals, air pollution, sugar, or a diet high in processed carbohydrates.

Many children contract Candida/yeast overgrowth in their gut from their mother while in utero, or while passing through the birth canal. This creates weaknesses in, not only their gut, but also in their immune system. Additionally, this adds a toxic load to their biology and sets them up for poor detoxification channels at birth.

Children with a weak digestive tract do not usually absorb the nutrients properly from the food they eat. The nutrition may not be getting in even if they are eating healthy foods. If their body is not absorbing the nutrients from the food properly, then their body becomes starved of vital nutrients which also feed the brain.

Home Gut Tests

There is an at-home candida test that is free and easy to do.  CLICK HERE to learn more about candida and get this free test.

You can also purchase an at-home test. Genova Laboratories carry various types of home tests for different issues. Choose the test that is best for your symptoms or call us if you need help. One test for general microbial analysis will indicate if you have candida overgrowth or an imbalance in your good and bad bacteria. The Genova Intestinal Permeability Test will detect if there is a problem with leaky gut.
