If your body has problems producing certain enzymes, you can experience a lifetime of health issues due to maldigestion.
Even somewhat healthy vegetables such as lettuce or parsley can elicit a food intolerance reaction if you are intolerant to these foods.
These reactions cause inflammation in your gut system and can lead to discomfort and health issues including weight gain due to carb cravings and slow metabolism, depression, headache, bloating, edema, fatigue, brain fog, stomach ache, acne, eczema and more.

Food intolerance is caused by undigested foods, which start accumulating in the gut and begin making their way into the bloodstream.
Our immune system recognizes most amino acids as friendly molecules. By contrast, partially digested food proteins are recognized as foreign intruders, which activates the immune system to combat these “invaders.” This is how the “war” begins.
The war between the immune system and partially digested proteins can lead to severe inflammation in the gut and other parts of the body.

Remember that when you have the flu, which also causes inflammation, you may experience a lot of discomfort including a headache, bloating, edema, fatigue, brain fog, stomach ache and more.
The reason for these discomforts is due to the fight between your immune system and the flu viruses.
The response that the immune system in a food intolerance reaction is similar to the inflammation seen in a viral or bacterial infection. Food intolerance discomfort, different from the flu, can last a long time or even lifetime if you keep continuing to consume foods that are causing food intolerance.
Serotonin plays the most important part in maintaining mood balance, but Serotonin is also the appetite suppressant in our body. This powerful brain chemical curbs cravings and shuts off appetite. It makes you feel satisfied even if your stomach is not full. Serotonin deficiency in our body also leads to sugar and carb cravings which make it tough to follow a low-calorie diet.
Despite the common belief that serotonin is primarily produced in the brain, 95% of the serotonin production originates from the cells of your gut. When our gut system gets inflamed due to food intolerance, the serotonin production is seriously decreased.
Lack of serotonin puts us in a vicious cycle. The more we eat the foods that we are intolerant to, to feel full, we crave more for food.
Today there are many methods to test for food intolerances. Most of these tests are considered old, alternative medical diagnostic methods that are typically not recognized by mainstream medicine.
The prevailing opinion of the scientific community is that reliable food intolerance testing requires IgG measurements made by using a microarray test such as Pinnertest.
To understand the difference between old technologies and a microarray test, a good example is the comparison of an X-ray and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner. X-rays provide important imaging details, however, much greater detail is possible with an MRI scanner.
Thinking that this will affect your future diet, choosing the right test is critical for you.

When you order a Pinnertest kit through www.pinnertest.com, in 2-3 business days you will receive a blood collection in a box. You may quickly return the blood sample back. In just seconds, you just draw a few drops of blood from your fingertip and return it on a sample pad, free of charge with the envelope provided inside the Pinnertest box.
Pinnertest is a finger stick lab test performed with blood. Thanks to the advanced technology, only a few drops of dry blood are enough to perform the Pinnertest.
You will receive the results via email in a week. The easy to understand report tells you exactly which foods make you sick. You can also receive a free consultation from Pinnertest consultants, for further questions.
Taking the Pinnertest was an enlightening experience. It pin-pointed food intolerances I never would have thought of. What's more it did so in an expedited fashion compared to using an elimination diet alone. Since taking it and using the information I learned I've seen immediate improvement in my skin.
