While other Food Sensitivity tests simply list the foods that may be causing inflammation and expect you to eliminate them from your diet permanently, only the ImuPro Food Sensitivity test guides you through a 3-stage process to reintroduce those foods back into your diet, so you can enjoy them again.
The ImuPro Concept is composed of 3 stages:
During the elimination phase, it is recommended that you restrict your diet to the foods that did not show elevated levels of specific-IgG antibodies in a 4-day rotation cycle. This not only helps to prevent the development of new food sensitivities, but also eliminates the possibility of malnutrition – which is key. All foods that showed elevated levels of specific-IgG antibodies are avoided during this phase, which results in the reduction of the inflammatory processes.
After the elimination phase, you begin a provocation diet by gradually including the avoided foods one by one. The provocation phase helps to find your personal “trigger foods”. Reintroducing possible trigger foods one at a time, allows you to better determine which exact foods may be responsible for your inflammation.
During the stabilisation phase, the trigger foods identified in the provocation phase are avoided for at least one year to allow the specific-IgG antibodies to diminish over time and allow your body to recover. After that period, you may reintroduce those foods one at a time (much like the provocation phase) to determine if the original inflammation returns. At that point, you may discover that there are only one or two specific foods that you may need to eliminate from your diet permanently.
The entire ImuPro Concept is described in detail in the Personal Nutritional Guide, which you will receive with your comprehensive report, as a part of your total report package
