“I love this test because food sensitivity tests are hard to trust their accuracy and therefor the results have to be taken with a grain of salt. In essence, this test looks at if the body is having any kind to reaction to a food so the results are much more accurate.” Dr Heidi Hook
Oxford Biomedical Technologies provides the most comprehensive food sensitivity test out there. This panel quantifies the inflammatory response to 170 different foods and food chemicals at the same time, identifying your best foods. This is so accurate because it is a Mediator Release Test. Despite all of the clinical and immunologic complexities associated with food sensitivities, the single common component of all diet-induced inflammatory reactions is pro-inflammatory and pro-algesic mediator release from white cells. It’s the release of cytokines, histamine, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc., from neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils and lymphocytes that lead to all the negative clinical effects a food sensitivity sufferer endures. This is true under all of the numerous immunologic circumstances and clinical circumstances associated with food sensitivities. Because of the vast array of potential mediators and reacting cells, measuring volumetric changes in all circulating white cells after antigen challenge is the most logical, direct, comprehensive and functional measure of food sensitivity reactions.
