You’re iron deficient and can’t figure out why? Could it be the wheat or a number of peptides within the proteins themselves that are to blame?
What we know is that all grains, legumes, nuts and seven seeds can play a role in reducing iron absorption. These contain something called phytic acid (or phytate), which can block the important absorption of iron from the foods we eat.
Enter the Wheat Zoomer. One of my favourite thing about this test is that it cuts cost for my patients. It’s basically a bunch of tests all rolled up into one – thanks to its state of the art technology.
From the standpoint of my colleagues, who just so happen to be immunologists…
If you have elevated antibodies to zonulin, actinomycin, or LPS, you’re likely to have some sort of pathogenic intestinal permiabilityTom O’Bryan
Predictive autoimmune testing can provide a much deeper understanding of WHAT is going on inside of us. This means detecting antibodies 7 to 10 years sooner than would happen if we simply left it for ‘symptoms’ to arise.
What makes this different than conventional labs? Much like other testing done within the Functional Medicine scope, the limits are removed. The failure rate is lower and the results tell a much more detailed story.
What Patients Would Benefit From the Wheat Zoomer?
- Suspected gluten or wheat sensitivity
- Suspected intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome)
- Gastrointestinal inflammation
- (diarrhea or constipation; cramping; nausea; discomfort after eating)
- Headaches, including migraines
- Neurological symptoms
- (memory loss, balance problems, numbness, tingling, anxiety)
- Skin rashes
- Joint pain
- Diagnoses of autoimmune conditions
- Low vitamin D status
- Multiple food sensitivities
- Excessive fatigue after meals
