Food Inflammation Testing Reveals Hidden Triggers

Jun 29, 2018 12:21AM

The patented Food Inflammation Test (FIT) can reveal which foods are causing inflammation and disease, and help develop a personalized nutritional guide to improve a patient’s state of health and energy levels. It does this by measuring immunoglobulin and immune complexes, the most common food-related pathways into the body.

       The FIT 132 measures sensitivities to as many as 132 different foods and additives to avoid fatigue, brain fog, fibromyalgia, arthritis, congestion, runny nose, migraines, eczema, IBS, GERD and more. FIT 22 evaluates 22 of the most common food sensitivities, using a blood sample obtained from a finger prick. Some of the foods tested include gluten, egg white, egg yolk, cow’s milk, casein, peanuts and almonds.

       Zonulin testing checks for increased intestinal permeability, which can be caused by food allergies and sensitivities, stress, infections and low stomach acid, among others. Elevated levels of Zonulin are associated with leaky gut, celiac disease, autoimmune disease, multiple sclerosis and other chronic illnesses.

FIT is available at both RX3 Compounding Pharmacy locations: 11934 West Broad St. and 12230 Ironbridge Rd., Ste. C, Chester. 888-384-5470.
