Food sensitivities and allergies have gone undetected for decades. Allergy tests, i.e. scratch tests or skin testing, performed in doctors' offices, measure immediate hypersensitivity reactions; they do not measure delayed reactions. They also measure skin reactions however reactions can occur anywhere in the body i.e. intestine (almost all reactions start here), brain.
Meredith teaches parents other options for detecting, managing and eliminating adverse reactions to food; there is simply no need to continue watching your child suffer. Meredith performs Interro-electro dermal testing in her office, a method of testing for immediate or delayed adverse reactions that occur in the intestine. This form of testing has been around for over 20 years – it has and continues to help thousands of people identify the foods to which they are reacting adversely.
Electro dermal testing, on the Interro system, measures the electrical/energetic resistance of the skin. Every organ system and cell of the human body forms a conduit for electrical energy; this energy flows through specific paths called meridians. The level of sensitivities to foods (220 foods!) is measured specifically from the flow of energy through the meridian of the large intestine.
A stress measurement reading is acquired by touching a probe (a pen-like device) to the exterior of the index finger. The computer records the stress and scales the measurement into levels of sensitivity. The test is non-invasive and does not hurt. Children from age 2 and up can be tested, provided they can sit still for about 20-30 minutes. Sometimes children read or watch movies, while Meredith does the testing but most are curious to see the results as they come up on the computer screen.
Test results are printed off immediately, so there is no waiting time! And of course, Meredith is knowledgeable about all of the alternative foods to the major food groups, if any of those foods come up as a challenge. As you know, she is also well vested in helping children overcome their food sensitivities.
