Food Sensitivities and Gut Health El Paso, Texas

Vibrant America is at the forefront of modern medicine and is a leader in autoimmune diagnostics. Vibrant America has the ability and technology to get high-quality, accurate test results down to the peptide level.

One of the many tests we utilize from Vibrant America at Injury Medical & Chiropractic Clinic is Food Sensitivity. With this test, we are able to analyze 96 of the most common foods that are consumed. This is important because food sensitivities can occur hours or days after the food is consumed. Many individuals who suffer from digestive orders, migraines, weight gain, and inflammation might not realize it is from food sensitivities.

 

Why test for Food Sensitivity?

Not only do food sensitivities leave you with uncomfortable side effects days after ingestion, but they are damaging your gut. In a healthy gut, the intestinal lining will provide immunity to food antigens. The food we eat is not supposed to cross the intestinal barrier. However, in an unhealthy gut, the intestinal lining becomes damaged due to inflammation and an under abundance of healthy flora. This allows food particles to pass through into the bloodstream which then causes an IgG antibody response. This is commonly referred to as a “leaky gut“. This can result in further inflammation and can contribute to some diseases.

What Is Leaky Gut Syndrome And How Do You Fix It?

 

When to test:

At Injury Medical, we want all of our patients to feel their best. On top of chiropractic care, we also offer functional medicine. When a patient mentions to us that they are having symptoms correlated to “leaky gut” such as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, skin itchiness, rashes like eczema, nausea, vomiting, joint pain, muscle stiffness, or feeling weak, we recommend running a food sensitivity panel.

How it works:

Once we sit down and have a detailed conversation, we send you to the labs with a “kit”. This “kit” provides the phlebotomist with everything they need in order to draw blood for the tests we order.

From here, the blood gets sent to Vibrant America. The blood is then examined all the way down to the peptide level. This allows a team of clinicians to discover the IgG and IgA antibody numbers in reaction to 96 foods (including dairy, meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, etc.).

Next, the results are sent back to us at Injury Medical Clinic. Dr. Jimenez and I ( Kenna Vaughn, Senior Health Coach), study these results to determine a proper treatment protocol. In addition to this, we have a team of clinicians that review each case with us, in order to fully understand what each result looks like and how to best approach it with the patient’s specific lifestyle.

Below is an example of how a patients test results would look:

Why this works

As mentioned above, food sensitivities have a delayed response. This testing works because it allows us to see what foods are responsible for the symptoms/reactions without the patient having to do an elimination diet.  With these results, the patient can start to make adjustments to their diet with our help in order to start feeling better and reducing their symptoms. The key to a healthy life is a healthy gut.

No one should have to live with uncomfortable symptoms or pain. If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, come into Injury Medical Clinic where we can assess your needs and help you get on track to feeling better! – Kenna Vaughn, Senior Health Coach

 

Disclaimer: It is important to remember that food sensitivity testing and food allergy testing are not the same. Food allergies involve an IgE antibody and are an immediate reaction and can occur within minutes.
