Food Sensitivity Testing : Finding the Right Laboratory  

Food sensitivity testing is not something that any laboratory can do. Accurate results are achieved when food sensitivity testing procedures are up-to-date.  

I recently went to Bastyr University, the Naturopathic school here just outside of Seattle, Washington. They're holding a continuing education conference and my Naturopathic friends here told me that I should show up and see if I could interview some interesting people and I did. 

I also got to interview two of the labs. First of all, I found their services are fascinating. Most noteworthy is their food sensitivity testing.   

Great Plains Laboratory  

I met Katlyn from Great Plains Laboratory.  It is the only lab in the United States that does glyphosate testing at a very affordable rate. According to Katlyn, they are based in Kansas and the lab has been around since 1996.   

The lab director of Great Plains Laboratory is Dr. William Shaw. Dr. Shaw is board certified in the fields of clinical chemistry and toxicology by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry. Glyphosate testing is also his passion.  This testing can be performed with a simple urine test. They also do other treatments to help get glyphosate out of your body.   

Why Get Glyphosate Testing?  

The Great Plains Laboratory website states that medical reports show many chronic health problems are caused by glyphosate exposure. Consequestly, it can enter the body by direct absorption through the skin.  In addition to that, it can also enter the body by eating foods treated with glyphosate or drinking water contaminated with glyphosate.  

"Glyphosate is a ticking time bomb in your body. There are too many chronic conditions. We see high co-relations with autism and different cancers as well," says Katlyn.  

Hence, Katlyn says it's important to measure where you are so that you can take the protocols to get it out of your body.   

Tips On How To Lower Glyphosate Levels  

  1. Switch to organic foods.  
  2. Make sure you're doing reverse osmosis for water to help get some of those glyphosate out.  
  3. There are also supplements to help excrete this from your body.  

Katlyn also says infrared sauna therapy is a way to detoxify it. It helps to sweat it out. One thing people need to remember is that when they are sweating out these toxins, they need to wipe it off with a towel frequently so it doesn't re-absorb back into their bodies.   

She also suggests that we should take control of our own health. In a addition to that, Katlyn stresses the importance of food sensitivity testing especially for glyphosate. This is so that we you can have a starting point to go where you need to go.    

And I agree. Consequently, what is measured is manageable. If we don't know what our levels are, then how can we get back on the road to good health.  

Common Symptoms Of Overexposure To Toxins  

  1. Headaches 
  2. Chronic fatigue 
  3. Gut issues  

Many patients of Great Plains Laboratory come to them on their last limb. They usually can't figure out what's going on. Hence, the lab looks at these areas that are not typically evaluated. So when they do find it, the patient goes through the treatment and symptoms have improved significantly.  

Meridian Valley Lab  

I also came across the Meridian Valley Lab who does several kinds of food sensitivity testing aside from glyphosate testing.   

According to their website, Harvard University and University of Michigan graduate, Dr. Jonathan Wright is Meridian Valley Lab's medical director.  Dr. Wright is an expert in research and application of natural treatments for healthy aging and illness. Furthermore, he also was the first to develop and introduce the use of comprehensive patterns of bio-identical hormones. This includes estrogens, progesterone, DHEA, and testosterone.  

The lab is a world leader in Allergy and Hormone Testing. In addition to food sensitivity testing, they also specialize in Comprehensive 24-Hour Urine Hormone and Metabolite Testing.  

Furthermore, established in 1976, Meridian Valley was the first lab in the USA to offer this test to help doctors use Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy safely and effectively.   

In the area of food sensitivity testing, they are the first lab in the United States to do the ELISA method, which is now the most used method of labs in the country.  

ELISA Method  

ELISA stands for enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. It is a type of food sensitivity testing that detects and measures antibodies in your blood.  

This food sensitivity test can be used to determine if you have antibodies related to certain infectious conditions. Antibodies are proteins that your body produces in response to harmful substances called antigens.  

The Meridien Valley Lab can test up to 190 foods for allergies and food sensitivity. While other labs only average around 150 foods.
