Identify the foods that are causing your systemic inflammation. Sub-clinical systemic inflammation is a primary cause of most degenerative diseases in our western culture and this inflammation begins in the digestive tract. Dr. Otis G Carroll, ND developed a methodology to identify an individual’s food intolerance, which is a test of digestive insufficiency rather than allergy or immune sensitivity. When a person consumes these foods, the undigested macronutrients create a non-optimal micro biome which is inflammatory to the individual. By identifying and removing these poorly digested foods, the patient is able to eliminate this source of inflammation and heal the affected bodily system(s).
The Carroll Food Intolerance technique involves a small finger poke blood sample and is completed within one week.
