Since food intolerances and sensitivities have delayed symptoms, it can be difficult to pinpoint which foods are causing your symptoms or daily discomfort. This is where food intolerance and sensitivity testing are critical. By using UCARI’s intolerance testing kit, you can determine which foods could potentially be causing your symptoms and begin eliminating them from your diet for a certain period of time. This is known as an elimination diet that our highly trained wellness coach can take you through.
An intolerance is a reaction to an external trigger and strong intolerances are usually from a body that is out of balance. This means that it is possible to improve intolerances by either 1) Removing the trigger, or 2) Improving the body' s balance. So don' t worry, if you are experiencing an intolerance, there is a good chance you will be able to improve your symptoms. However, if your symptoms do not improve, then it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible. Many symptoms of intolerances can mimic symptoms of other conditions which are not necessarily related to what you eat or your environment. Taking the time to eliminate intolerance triggers will not harm your health, but ignoring warning signs may. So keep your doctor in the loop of what you' re up to and make sure to get any questions checked out.
No. You don' t have to have all of the potential triggers you would like to test in your stomach or on your skin. (That would be quite the feat!) You don' t even have to have been exposed to it before! We will use your hair to test how your body reacts to different food and environmental triggers. The electromagnetic waves in your hair still respond the way they do in the rest of your body, and that' s what our machine reads. So think of your hair sample as the representative for your body, and our machine asks how it would respond to peaches, or lamb, or Red#40. Your hair will let us know how tolerant it is of the substance with its electromagnetic response, and that will tell us how your body would likely respond. Those are the results we give to you.
Non-food intolerances refer to items you may come in contact with that may cause an intolerance response, but are not foods. Things like soaps, shampoos, perfumes, makeup, or natural things in the environment like pollen, dust, and dander can all trigger an intolerance response in your body. Once you identify these non-food triggers, you can choose to avoid them so your body can be better balanced.
Metal toxicity is the build-up of large amounts of heavy metals in the soft tissues of your body. The heavy metals most commonly associated with poisoning are lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium. Exposure usually occurs through industrial exposure, pollution, food, medication, improperly coated food containers, or the ingestion of lead-based paints. Symptoms vary between the different types of heavy metals.
Skin sensitivities refer specifically to your body' s reaction to substances that touch your skin. For example, makeup, lotions, and sunscreen are common triggers. Your body may respond with a rash, redness, swelling, or a higher sensitivity to pain. Skin sensitivities may be worsened when a trigger is highly concentrated, or used often. Simply washing your skin too often can cause your skin to become sensitive to any substance.
