Food Intolerance Testing
In an effort to help both our clients and society as a whole, OPTIHealth Weightloss and Wellness Center has partnered with Modern Allergy Management to offer their largest, most comprehensive food intolerance testing, available now at a discounted rate.
Our society is barraged with many impurities and toxins on a daily basis. It truly is no wonder we have so many health problems. While there is very little we can do about many of these daily assaults on our bodies, there IS a way that we can take back control over those we can! Modern Allergy Management has used the latest in bio-technology resonance hair testing and developed a series of safe, simple, and non-invasive tests that include 650 different food and environmental (non-food) items, 50 nutritional items, and 50 metal (toxicity) items. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could find out some of the things that our bodies have developed an intolerance for so we could actually make educated decisions as to how much, if any, we allow into our systems? By doing this, we increase our chances of reducing internal inflammation, as well as a host of other issues. Power is knowledge! Knowing that your body is reacting negatively to something gives you the power to remove the offender for a little while before reintroducing it or removing it permanently, if needed.
You are literally 3-5 business days away from gaining that knowledge!
What is the difference between a food sensitivity, an intolerance, or an allergy?
The main difference between a sensitivity or intolerance and an allergy is that an allergy will manifest itself almost immediately and tends to be stronger in severity. Food intolerance, on the other hand, is not as easily detected. Depending on the individual, symptoms may arrive anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days after consumption or contact. The symptoms of an intolerance can manifest in various ways and severity, and this makes them very tricky to deal with. This is especially true if you do not know what is causing them!

Symptoms of Palladium toxicity include extreme tiredness, confusion, sore throat, migraines, blisters on the body, pain in the teeth and jaw, and impairment of the immune system.
It has the highest electrical conductivity of any element and is soft with a silver/white color. It is commonly used in jewelry and can be mixed with mercury and used in fillings. It is used in many photography products and is still used in many household medicinal products. Symptoms of silver toxicity includes headaches, severe joint pain, fatigue, skin irritation, heart palpitations, and increased levels of mucus.
This yellowish metallic element is highly reactive. It is named after Strontian, a village in Scotland where it was first discovered. It is used in cathode ray tubes. Symptoms begin with a skin rash and progress to violent flu-like symptoms and an increased white blood cell count. The organs of the liver, kidneys, and lungs can be severely damaged if exposure continues.
It is often classed as a poor metal and is used to coat other metals to prevent corrosion. It is silver in color. It is mainly used in soldering with 52% of all tin being used in this way. It is also used as a coating and in food preservation. It is found in many industrial produced fruit juices. Symptoms of tin toxicity includes cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, chills, and many gastro issues.
It is a very strong element and is known for its corrosion resistance including against sea water. It is found in most living things including rocks, water, and soil. It is used in aircraft, spacecraft, and missiles. It is also used in the manufacture of cars, bikes, sports equipment, and even spectacles. It is sometimes used in jewelry and medical procedures. It is now being used in dentistry as a teeth replacement product. Symptoms of titanium toxicity includes eye irritation and eye issues, skin pain, sore throats, vomiting, mouth and nose irritations, and shortness of breath.
This is a very hard silvery metal. It is very rarely found on its own as it is chemically combined in nature. It is corrosion resistant. It is used in rust-resistant springs and high speed tools. Symptoms can include fever, chills, headache, cough, anorexia, or ear infection.
Zinc (sometimes known as Spelter) is used in paints, rubber production, photocopying, and as a wood preservative. It is also used in televisions and x-rays. Symptoms include burning sensation, chills, convulsions, rash, shortness of breath, and vomiting.
This is the third most common metal on earth and one of the most toxic. It has incredibly low density and is able to resist corrosion. It is soft, durable, and lightweight and is silver/dull grey. It is commonly found in most water (except filtered and bottled). Very low levels can be found in plants, cereals, fruits, and vegetables due to high concentrations in the ground. However, there is none found in herbs, spices, and teas. It is quite common in dough and processed cheese. It is common in everyday items like transport, household products, packaging, and lighting. It is used in some antiperspirants, and many over the counter medications contain quite high levels of aluminum. Symptoms of aluminum toxicity can include memory loss, learning difficulty, loss of coordination, disorientation, mental confusion, disturbed sleep, colic, heartburn, flatulence, and headaches. Studies are still continuing about its possible link with Alzheimer’s.
This is a shiny grey metal and is extremely flame retardant. It is often used in cosmetics, army supplies, and in cables. Symptoms of antimony poisoning are headaches, nausea, dizziness, and depression. Large doses cause vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, and tingling of the extremities.
Arsenic appears in many minerals and is a metallic grey color in its raw form. It is used in pesticides, wood products, and is notoriously poisonous. Symptoms of arsenic poisoning are headaches, confusion, severe diarrhea, and drowsiness. In intense exposure, it can cause death.
This is a divalent element which naturally occurs when used in combination with other elements in minerals. It has a high melting point and a higher elasticity than steel. It is commonly used in aircraft, missiles, spacecraft, and satellites. Symptoms include conjunctivitis, skin irritation, skin ulcers, nausea, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, eye irritation, and in severe cases, pneumonia.
This is a brittle metal with a silvery white color when fresh, but it gains a pink tinge due to oxidation. It is also slightly radioactive. Bismuth has a low toxicity and is found in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals including Pepto-Bismol. Symptoms of bismuth toxicity include confusion, decreased appetite, weight loss, weakness, joint pain, skin rash, tremors, diarrhea, and staining on gums.
A very similar metal to zinc and mercury, it is slightly blue/white in color. It is commonly found in batteries (mainly rechargeable), electroplating, televisions, and paints. There are also large quantities found in food products such as spinach, potatoes, shellfish, and offal. It is one of the most toxic ingredients in cigarettes. Symptoms of cadmium toxicity include fatigue, headaches, vomiting, anemia, and in more severe cases, kidney dysfunction and emphysema.
Chromium is a steely-grey hard metal with a high melting point. It is mostly used to harden steel and other services to resist corrosion. All chromium compounds may cause dermatitis, and some may cause occupational asthma. They can also cause chrome ulcers which form little holes in the skin.
It is produced by reductive smelting and is silver/grey in color. It used to be used as a blue pigment for jewelry but had to be stopped due to the amount of reactions it caused. It can commonly be found in lithium batteries and electroplating. Symptoms of cobalt toxicity include gastro issues, tinnitus, and respiratory diseases.
It is soft and malleable and red/orange in color. It is a great conductor of heat and electricity. It is often found in many household fittings including electrical wiring, roofing, and plumbing. Symptoms of copper toxicity include headaches, insomnia, fatigue, depression, learning difficulties, and skin rashes.
This is an alloy consisting of mercury (50%), silver (22-32%), tin (14%), copper (8%), and other trace metals. It is used due to its low cost, ease of application, strength, and durability. Symptoms include various chronic breathing disorders, compromised cognitive functions, extreme changes in mood, hallucinations, and depression.
