Great Food Intolerance News!

From eNewsletter 11/14/2022

DID YOU KNOW that there is genetic test to see whether you tolerate the class of cholesterol drugs called statins?

While 23andMe just announced they received FDA clearance to add this to their recommendations, we have been doing this in our Pure Genomics Genetic Wellness Screening for a few years now.

There are only very specific individuals who need statins, but having the ability to test for the SLCO1B1 gene first is a great resource for you to have.

Great Food Intolerances News!

Steve: Many in the medical community guffaw when food intolerance is mentioned. We don't. Food intolerance testing has been an integral part of our practice for decades. Many in the medical community use the excuse that little research exists regarding food intolerance. That could not be further from the truth.

Just to give you a refresher: food intolerance (IgG/cytotoxic) is a slow-forming toxic reaction to one or more foods, whereas food allergy (IgE) is massive immune response within 24 hours of being exposed to the offending food. Food intolerances are so stealth that they may not crop up until a chronic condition develops, even into adulthood. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a very common result of food intolerances.

Screening for, and eliminating problematic foods resulted in a significant difference on IBS measures of improvement and symptom relief in subjects from one of the largest and most rigorous randomized, double-blind study presented at last month's American College of Gastroenterology 2022 annual meeting.

If you are thinking about removing food intolerances yourself... the authors were quoted as saying, "outcomes following self-directed elimination diets are poor". Work with a qualified health professional please.
