What is the hidden food intolerance test?
It is a special type of laboratory analysis, which identifies nutrition components that negatively affect a patient’s health. The test helps to build the strategy to treat chronic diseases and symptoms related to type III immunopathological reactions. Such reactions are characterized by tissue damage and inflammatory processes that are caused by certain microelements in food products during the process of digestion.
Hidden food intolerance test at Kivach Clinic
In order to detect hidden food intolerance, the specialists of the clinic use a diagnostic system called Immunohealth. Unlike its analogs, Immunohealth sets the “norm-pathology” criterion for each patient individually. It minimizes errors in defining the products that harm a patient’s health.
Special Immunohealth methods identify not only the products your body is not tolerating but also the clusters of such products – the groups of food products that are not recommended for consumption. It helps to develop an individual elimination diet for a patient – a regimen that helps to get the elements that provoke allergy and other pathologic reactions out of the body. It is done through the exclusion of certain products and clusters of products. In fact, this diet is an effective therapeutic way to treat many chronic diseases.
Specialists of the clinic draft an individual food regimen based on the test, and send the patient a letter with commentaries.
