Test, Don’t Guess!
The Food Inflammation Test (FIT) is the definitive short cut to what to eat and what not to eat right now to reduce any type of inflammatory reaction that you might be getting from your diet. By testing 132 different foods, emulsifiers, food additives, and chemicals in one test, you will get back information that will give you and your family immediate, actionable information.
The FIT Test measures delayed food sensitivities which means you may have symptoms that seem very unrelated to what you have eaten in both the timing and the types of symptoms. The delay in symptoms together with the additive nature of food sensitivities makes it very hard to identify the specific culprits on your own. Because the FIT Test evaluates each item with a sensitivity scale, you’ll find out the specific food items to which you have small and large reactions.
Symptoms of inflammation from your diet include a variety of GI symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, alternating diarrhea or constipation, burping or burning as well as seemingly unrelated symptoms like fatigue, “brain fog,” headaches, joint and muscle pain, mood issues, food cravings, weight gain or difficulty losing weight, unexplained weight loss, skin problems and much more. Furthermore, having many food sensitivities and chronic inflammation creates a gateway to many inflammatory and autoimmune related diseases.
The latest science derived from sequencing the human genome and the microbiome (the communities of microorganisms that live on or in people, plants, soil, oceans, and the atmosphere) shows us that an imbalanced gut microbiome may be a root cause of chronic gastrointestinal symptoms, intestinal permeability, hormonal imbalance, autoimmune conditions, chronic inflammatory arthritis, and food sensitivities.
The GI-MAP uses FDA-cleared DNA analysis to identify the microorganisms that cause disease or that disrupt normal microbial balance in the gastrointestinal tract. Because of the superior sensitivity and specificity of this new technology, the results can help resolve persistent and complex illnesses. Since the immune system, the intestinal barrier, and microbial diversity are intimately interwoven, a better understanding of your gut microbiome holds promise for new approaches to treat and prevent disease of all kinds.
The GI-MAP identifies a comprehensive collection of microbial targets (including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites) as well as immune and digestive markers providing actionable information to identify what is specifically disrupting your gastrointestinal microbiome. The latest scientific studies associate the markers on the GI-MAP to many diverse symptoms including:
- Gastrointestinal / urinary tract symptoms like: abdominal pain, bloating, candida, constipation, Crohn’s disease, diarrhea, food poisoning, gastric cancer, gastritis, gastroenteritis, gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and disease (IBD), leaky gut, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), ulcer, ulcerative colitis, urinary tract infections, vomiting, yeast overgrowth;
- Autoimmune conditions like: reactive arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, thyroid (Hashimoto’s and Grave’s), type 1 diabetes, psoriasis, eczema, Ankylosing spondylitis
- Allergic diseases like: asthma and eczema.
