    Hi all,

    My current GI ran some Allermetrix testing--many viles of blood--to test all kinds of food intolerences...very comprehensive....many of them I already knew thru the elimination process but there were some 'surprises'...it also shows which foods I do NOT have a problem with.

    I would encourage all of you to find a doctor who will run these tests for you, as it could cut down the symptoms and such.

    He told me too that our bodies have developed antibodies to foods--as a result of different things--like the chemicals they spray on foods to preserve them to work environment--breathing in chemicals.

    He told me that a lot of his patients not only had their IBS clear up after modifying their diet based on the results from this test, but also had other things like arthritis and migraines clear up too!!!

    Most of the foods that I 'enjoy' are problematic for me so I get to develop new tastes...am thankful that chocolate is NOT a problem for me!
