There is no such thing as a healthy diet! In fact, it depends on what your body can do with it and whether you can stand it. Foods play a major role in chronic symptoms. In our lifetime, we work away about 50 tons of food. That’s about 50 elephants! 60% of all patients have a food allergy and this seems to be getting worse. The allergy clinics have long waiting lists. Many of my patients have been there before. It usually didn’t result in much except that they either had to learn to live with it, or the immune system was suppressed with medication. Consider corticosteroids.
The classical antibody test, the regular way of testing such as the RAST test and immune IgE tests have limited value and are completely inferior to a test for food hypersensitivity that we use ( imupro).
The IgG ImuPro food test.
Allergy to food produces an angry response from the immune system. Think of that immune system for a moment as an army of soldiers whose leadership has run away. The soldiers panic and shoot at “everything. An inflammatory and often increased histamine reaction occurs.
But beware there are many tests type igG in circulation that are not recommended. It only confuses you further because far too many positive results are found. Imupro is a good test, though.
An (immunological/allergic) reaction to food can lead to a wide range of symptoms. It is advisable to start with the :
- Imupro 90 in which 90 types of food are tested through your blood. If there are many responses then it is advisable to pay a portion extra and then do the heavier imupro
- Imupro 300 ( 270 responses)
Now why is it so hard to figure out for yourself what you can’t stand?
The complaint is often not linked to food allergy. For example, who thinks of an intolerance when they have a headache? And especially: the reaction is delayed, sometimes days after eating….So you quickly link that Friday’s banana as the “culprit” when it might have been due to Monday’s strawberries.
Not infrequently I see people who no longer dare to eat anything. They avoid everything and limit their diet to a few things they do dare to eat. That’s wrong! First, deficiencies (deficiencies in vitamins & minerals) and, on the contrary, increased permeable gut develop so quickly.
Food allergy is an abnormal reaction of the immune system, in which specific defenses are made in the body against certain allergens in food. The antibodies that are formed are called immunoglobulins or IgG.
An immunological reaction will not occur immediately the first time one eats the food to which one is allergic.
Only after some time and multiple contacts with the allergen in question does the immune system produce antibodies or immunoglobulins against that allergen, often still without noticeable symptoms. However, with repetitions, the immune system will recognize the allergen as an “offender” and an allergic reaction follows. Only then do complaints become noticeable. It is impossible to tell in advance what symptoms one will get, it is individually determined. Also, the same food provokes different reactions in certain individuals in different systems of the body.
Intestinal problems: all intestinal problems cramps, bloating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malabsorption syndrome
Darm inflammations: ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s * (IBS)irritable bowel syndrome
Chronisch fatigue syndrome
Neurological Hyperactivity, difficulty concentrating, epilepsy,
Skin complaints: eczema, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, lupus
Ademise complaints: asthma, sinus complaints, sneezing, coughing, wheezing
Psychological disorders, – depression
Migraine*, headache, fatigue, vertigo
Inflammation: inflammation, cancer, arthritis
Auto-immune disease: diabetes
Aly chronic diseases
Stournaments in fine motor skills
Overweight (in children)*, adiposity
Can food allergy type IgG pass?
The immune system will always remain alert for determinate foods. However, by avoiding them for some time, depending on the severity of the reaction, one can usually reintroduce the food after a while.
Can I do this myself?
It is highly inadvisable to experiment on your own. In our experience, people start to keep certain foods out of the diet and eat far too one-sided foods. There is then a danger of becoming deficient in certain nutrients and weakening. Or the one-sided diet may cause another allergy to foods that one then eats (too) frequently. After all, many people have a more or less leaky gut (leaky gut) that must first be repaired with a gut protocol. This is what Complimed specializes in.
How is testing done?
To do this, your blood is first tested for IgE food allergy (direct allergens). Through our laboratory, you will be tested for 90 IgG allergens immediately in the process. If necessary, further testing for additional 180 IgG allergens can be done in consultation to complement the picture.
*: IgE allergy tests are included in the basic package.
*: 90 IgG allergens are NOT reimbursed.
What can I expect in a treatment?
You will first have an intake interview in which you tell us what complaints plague you. The same day you will be tested in the laboratory in the same building. After about 3 weeks you will come back and the results will be discussed with you and an initial treatment and food recommendation will be made.
Depending on how severe your symptoms are, you then follow at least 4 more sessions spread over several months to a year. It all depends on your complaint and whether multiple organs are involved. You will find that you usually start to feel better very soon.
What does testing and treatment cost?
The test is done through LHM diagnostics , your practitioner does not earn anything from it, you will receive a form from the laboratory with a direct debit.
- The ImuPro Basic (90 allergens).
- The ImuPro Basic test costs €164.00. (excluding €15.65 medical processing fee and 21% VAT)
- Imupro Screen (22 allergens)
- The ImuPro Screen test costs €44.00 (excluding €15.65 medical processing fee and 21% VAT)
- ImuPro Complete (270 allergens)
- The ImuPro Complete test costs €399.00 (excluding €15.65 medical processing fee and 21% VAT)
Furthermore, you pay for the consultation time in which a specific recommendation is worked out for you with the corresponding resources ordered for you immediately. You will receive a bill for this from the relevant supplier(s) at home. Of course, this is done in consultation with you.
Demonstration of IgG antibodies to food components in blood
The ImuPro is a diagnostic test, which detects IgG antibodies to antigenic components from food. If IgG antibodies are present in the serum, this indicates the presence of an immunological reaction, food allergy type 3 (popularly known as food intolerance).
The test was developed in 2000 using the latest diagnostic technologies by the R-Biopharm AG in Darmstadt and is produced there under the strict criteria of the German Artzneimittelgesetzes (AMG). The processing of the test is done in the laboratory of Pro Health Medical in Weert.
Importance of IgG antibodies
The demonstration of high concentrations of IgG antibodies indicates regular contact between food and immune system cells. Antibodies bind to the food antigens and thus mark themselves as foreign to the body under formation of an immune complex. The immune complex is then processed through descending inflammatory processes. These processes take place continuously and are the cause of a multitude of chronic diseases.
Once the foods responsible for this have been identified by the ImuPro 300, the patient can begin to adjust their diet. A comprehensive report, determined from the laboratory examination, gives him guidance. The report is complemented by a recipe collection, featuring only tolerable foods.
ImuPro is used by many physicians for unclear therapeutic complaints:
Chronic diarrhea, constipation, ulcerative colitis, IBS
Stomach acid, ulcer, hernia diafragmatica
Headache/Migraine (study available)
Childhood obesity (study available)
Relationship to Adiposity
Self-perpetuating inflammatory processes lead to the release of inflammatory mediators. An important role in this plays the tumor necrosis factor, TNF-a. The natural function of TNF-a, when tumors arise, is to limit the energy supply of derailed cells.
Over binding to insulin receptors prevents the transport of blood sugar into cells. High concentrations of TNF-a then leads to the development of insulin resistance, thus promoting adiposity.
