If you answered yes to 3 or more of the above questions, you might have a Food Intolerance.
Food intolerance occurs when our bodies cannot properly digest and convert the foods we eat into the necessary nutrients that fuel our systems. This maldigestion causes inflammation, which leads to many negative symptoms including fatigue, migraine & headaches, eczema, bloating, gas, congestion, weight gain, brain fog, joint ache, acid reflux, food cravings, diarrhea, skin rash and more.
Thanks to advanced biotechnology, there is now a very precise method to know which foods you are intolerant to – Pinnertest is an in-home, next generation blood test that identifies a patient’s individual food intolerances.
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. Differently from the flu, however, these symptoms will persist over a lifetime if you continue to consume foods that your body is intolerant to.
One of the more common side-effects of food intolerance is weight gain. This is mainly due to depleted levels of serotonin, the powerful chemical responsible for maintaining mood balance, social behavior, libido, memory, and digestive health. More importantly, though, serotonin also acts as the natural appetite suppressant in our bodies, making us feel satisfied even when our stomachs are not full.
When fighting a food intolerance, serotonin production (95% of which originates from the cells in our intestines) decreases dramatically, leading us to intense carb and sugar cravings.
This process sends our bodies into a vicious cycle of mood swings, depression, and unwanted cravings, all stemming from the body’s fight against food intolerance.
Today there are many methods to test for food intolerances. Most of these tests are considered old, alternative 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.

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.
