Inflammation can significantly increase intestinal permeability and compromise assimilation of nutrients. The extent of inflammation, whether caused by pathogens or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), can be assessed and monitored by examination of the levels of biomarkers such as lysozyme, lactoferrin, white blood cells and mucus. These markers can be used to differentiate between inflammation associated with potentially life-threatening inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which requires lifelong treatment, and less severe inflammation that can be associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) which is frequently due to the presence of enteroinvasive pathogens.

Cornerstones of good health include proper digestion of food, assimilation of nutrients, exclusion of pathogens and timely elimination of waste. To obtain benefits from food that is consumed, nutrients must be appropriately digested and then efficiently absorbed into portal circulation. Microbes, larger-sized particles of fiber, and undigested foodstuffs should remain within the intestinal lumen. Poor digestion and malabsorption of vital nutrients can contribute to degenerative diseases, compromised immune status and nutritional deficiencies. Impairment of the highly specific nutrient uptake processes, or compromised GI barrier function, as in "leaky gut syndrome," can result from a number of causes including:


Low gastric acid production
Chronic maldigestion
Food allergen impact on bowel absorptive surfaces
Bacterial overgrowth or imbalances (dysbiosis)
Pathogenic bacteria, yeast or parasites and related toxic irritants

The use of NSAIDs and antibiotics Impairment of intestinal functions can contribute to the development of food allergies, systemic illnesses, autoimmune disease, and toxic overload from substances that are usually kept in the confines of the bowel for elimination. Efficient remediation of GI dysfunctions incorporates a comprehensive guided approach that should include consideration of elimination of pathogens and exposure to irritants, supplementation of hydrochloric acid, pancreatic enzymes and pre- and probiotics, and repair of the mucosal barrier.

foodallergytestingFOOD ALLERGY & SENSITIVITY TESTING

 

Here at Pure Wellness, we offer different types of examinations for food allergy or sensitivities.

read more ↓

 

 

 Pure Wellness Group offers different types of examinations for food allergies and sensitivities, including a simple finger prick blood test,  Conventional Food Allergy Testing and Zyto Scanning. 

 

Finger Prick
When an immune reaction occurs, the immune system reacts by releasing cells called antibodies. The foods and inhaled particles that provoke the release of antibodies are called allergens. Two commonly produced antibodies are IgG (immunoglobulin G) and IgE (immunoglobulin E).   Food Sensitivity Testing involves testing for the IgG immune response to a variety of foods.  IgG testing requires a simple finger poke, taken at home.

Conditions related to IgG food sensitivities:

  • Headaches and high blood pressure
  • Mood disorders
  • Asthma and recurring respiratory infections
  • Joint pain
  • Runny noses and puffiness around the eyes

 

For more information on the Zyto Scan, see the Zyto Scan section in our testing menu.  
For Conventional Food Allergy Testing, please contact the clinic.

heavyHEAVY METAL TESTING

 

One of the many testing kits that we offer, is the Heavy Metal and Toxic Elements test. 

read more ↓

 

 

Once collection has been done, the sample is sent off to the lab, Doctor’s Data (operating since 1972), and results are forwarded back to our clinic.

Analysis of the levels of toxic metals in urine after the administration of a metal detoxification agent is an objective way to evaluate the accumulation of toxic metals. Acute metal poisoning is rare. More common, however, is a chronic, low-level exposure to toxic metals that can result in significant retention in the body that can be associated with a vast array of adverse health effects and chronic disease. Toxic metals do not have any useful physiological function.  They adversely affect every organ system in the body and disrupt the homeostasis of nutrient elements.

 Acute metal poisoning is rare. More commonly seen is a chronic, low-level exposure to toxic metals that can result in significant retention in the body.  This retention is associated with a vast array of adverse health effects.

This test is useful for:

Toxic Element Exposure
Alopecia
Bone Density
Cardiovascular Disease
Depression
Dermatitis or Poor Wound Healing
Detoxification Therapy
Fatigue
Gastrointestinal Symptoms
Hypertension
Immune Function
Impaired Glucose Tolerance
Inflammation
Kidney Function
Nutritional Deficiencies
Parkinson's-like Symptoms

lymediseaseLYME DISEASE TESTING

 

Lyme disease is a world-wide infectious disease caused by microscopic bacteria carried by tiny ticks

read more ↓

 

 

What is Lyme disease?
Lyme disease is a world-wide infectious disease caused by microscopic bacteria carried by tiny ticks.

 

How is Lymes transmitted?
There are several species of deer ticks across the US that have become infected with the spiral bacterium,Borrelia burgdorferi. Unsuspecting humans and animals walking through woodlands and brushy areas may be bitten by a tick and never know it. The tiny ticks, some the size of poppy seeds, may stay on your body for hours or up to days. The tick engorges itself with blood. If infected, the spirochete is transmitted to the bloodstream of the person or animal during the bite.

 

What are the symptoms?
A characteristic red bulls-eye rash (EM) at the site of the bite is present in less than 40% of patients. The rash may appear within days or weeks after the bite but could be hidden in the hairline or armpits.

 

Lyme Disease Tests

  • IgG/IgM/IgA Screen (IFA)*
  • IgG/IgM and IgM Antibody ELISA
  • C6 Peptide
  • IgG Western Blot and IgM Western Blot
  • 30/31 kDA Confirmation Test*
  • Lyme Dot Blot Assay (LDA)*
  • Reverse Western Blot (Confirmation test for LDA)*
  • Multiplex PCR for urine, whole blood, serum, CSF
  • Multiplex PCR for Miscellaneous samples (skin biopsy, breast milk, semen, etc)

 

In addition to Lyme Disease, a co-infection may be suspected for Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Bartonella or Rickettsia. Pure Wellness Group offers tests for these other tick-borne illnesses. The tests are IFA (fluorescent antibody) or direct tests by PCR. In the case of Babesia, we offer PCR tests for both B. microti and Babesia duncani (West Coast strain). In addition, we offer a Babesia FISH (fluorescent in situ hybridization) test that detects Babesia parasites directly on air-dried blood smears. The FISH test is highly specific for Babesia, unlike the standard test, the geimsa stain smear, which is neither sensitive or specific.

 

Babesiosis Tests

  • B. microti IgG/IgM Antibody
  • B duncani IgG/IgM Antibody*
  • Babesia PCR Screen
  • Babesia FISH (RNA)

Ehrlichiosis Tests

  • Anaplasma phagocytophila (HGE) IgG/IgM Ab
  • Anaplasma phagocytophila (HGE) PCR
  • Human Monocytic Ehrlichia (HME) IgG/IgM Ab
  • Human Monocytic Ehrlichia (HME) PCR

 Bartonella Tests

  • Bartonella henselae IgG/IgM Antibody
  • Bartonella henselae PCR for Whole Blood, Serum*, or CSF

 

Rickettsia Tests

  • Rickettsia PCR for Whole Blood, Serum or CSF
