IgG testing, results, biomedical autism treatment

Dr. Woeller is a biomedical autism treatment specialist. He has been in clinical practice for over 11 years implementing a variety of biomedical interventions including those of the Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) organization for individuals on the autism-spectrum.







I had the pleasure of asking Dr. Woeller a few questions, with his permission I'm sharing the questions and answers here.

What are the benefits of IgG allergy testing?

IgG testing is useful to determine the likelihood of increased food sensitivity to one or a group of food items. IgG is the most abundant antibody in the bloodstream and when it complexes with a food protein the interaction may stimulate inflammation. IgG is also a protective antibody and so an elevation of IgG against a food is a defense mechanism in the body to prevent perceived adverse reactivity from the immune system. Most food reactions are mediated by chemicals other than IgE (true allergy). Food IgG can be a drain on the immune system as more and more elevated markers to food indicate that the immune system is over-sensitized to a particular food and avoidance of that food is warranted.

Who should be tested and why?

Individuals with chronic illness are good candidates for food IgG testing. Also, individuals with unexplained digestive complaints such as bloating, pain, constipation, diarrhea, and reflux. Other issues such as recurring headaches, fatigue, skin rashes, joint and muscle aches and pains, etc. can often be attributed to food sensitivities.

Why would someone test positive to a food they are not consuming?

This is called molecular mimicry (MM). MM is when the chemical configuration of one food looks similar to something else. An example is soy protein having cross-sensitivity, i.e. MM with gluten (wheat) and/or casein (dairy).

What can you tell us about learning issues, speech delay and IgG food allergy's?

There are chemical interactions with food and brain chemistry. Food IgG does cause immune complexing that has the potential to cross-react with tissue cells in the body. If this reaction occurs in the nervous system the potential for speech centers to be affected is a possibility. However, there are other components in food that seem to play a role chemically. Gluten (wheat) and casein (dairy) have certain amino acid sequences (peptides) that look similar to opiate chemicals. It is known that these chemical patterns of gluten (called gluteomorphin) and casein (called caseomorphin) can disturb brain chemistry which may adversely affect speech.

What are two important facts everyone should know about IgG allergy testing?

  • Food IgG is just one aspect of food reactivity in the body. A normal food IgG test does not necessarily indicate that a suspected food is okay to eat, as there are chemical effects of food that may cause problems too, i.e. gluten and casein peptide issue.

  • Food IgG is classified as sensitivity or intolerance. IgG is not true allergy. IgE is the allergy chemical and what most allergist test for when assessing suspected food or environmental allergens. However, in the vast majority of individuals food IgE is normal, while food IgG reactions are elevated. Again, food IgG can be indicative of ongoing stress on the immune system leading to inflammation formation in the body.

For additional information on allergy testing please watch these two videos below from Dr. Woeller:

Did you have IgG testing done or planing on having testing done? Dr. Woeller can help.

Do you need help understanding what all those lines and graphs on your test results mean? It can be very confusing trying to decipher all the markers by yourself, and then what are you supposed to with the information? You can send your test results to Dr. Waeller, video lab reviews will analyze and review the test results, record it, and send you the link to view a video explaning everything.

ADHD in many cases has been linked to diet, which includes food allergies and nutritional deficiencies…simply eliminating certain foods or adding others may reduce symptoms or eliminate them altogether.

Those with autism are more susceptible to allergies and food sensitivities than the average person.

How were you diagnosed with Celiac Disease, gluten intolerance, gluten sensitivity?

I started a poll, located in top left hand corner of this blog.

Please take our Poll and leave us a comment.


"A video on the latest cutting edge research about Gluten"

The 2009 Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Forum was hosted to a capacity crowd.

Highly requested was a DVD of the event both from those who attended as well as for those unable to attend the live event.

"They" (http://www.healthnowmedical.com/)are now happy to offer you the chance to own a copy of the DVD.

Dr. Vikki Petersen, D.C., C.C.N., Co-author of The Gluten Effect
Did you know that not only does the average person wait 11 years for a diagnosis of celiac disease, but the gold standard of testing is no longer considered to be a biopsy? Learn the pros and cons of current testing methods, as well as the additional health risks associated with delayed diagnosis.

Dr. Rodney Ford, M.B., B.S., F.R.A.C.P., A.S.M., Professor of Pediatrics
Dr. Ford presents compelling data from his own research that supports the theory that gluten sensitivity and celiac can affect all the body’s systems. In one study, up to 80% of non-celiac patients felt better on a gluten-free diet, raising the question of whether or not most people – gluten sensitive or not – would benefit from a gluten-free diet.

Dr. Richard Petersen, D.C., C.C.N. Co-author of The Gluten Effect
Wonder why you still feel ill, even on a gluten-free diet? Dr. Petersen deciphers the secondary health problems associated with gluten sensitivity and details a strategy for successfully treating them.

Food Allergies

Monday, March 15, 2010

We have all heard the expression;

“You are what you eat”, "One Man's Food is Another's Man’s Poison"

Let's talk about Food Allergies:

Delayed Food Allergy (IgG) "food sensitivities" TYPE TWO reactions are not immediate.

Mainstream medicine normally tests for Immediate Food Allergy (IgE)

TYPE ONE toxic reactions.

Could IgG "food sensitivities" be effecting your health?

Food intolerance IgG is a delayed immune response to food. The response can occur over several hours, or days after eating the offending food. Food sensitivities can cause unpleasant symptoms and is associated with a host of chronic conditions including: Celiac Disease, IBS, Colitis, Gastroenteritis, Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis, Urticaria, Dermatitis, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, Chronic Otitis Media, Recurrent Aphtos Stomatitis, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, among others.

Unfortunately, we tend to crave and eat the foods to which we are intolerant. Eating these foods everyday can cause sensitivities for us, leading to profound effects on our physical and mental health. The foods that we are intolerant to are usually the foods that cause weight gain, weight loss, digestive disorders, and skin disorders among other ailments. Eating these “reactive” foods over time can have profound long-term effects on our physical and mental health.

An ongoing study reveals that 95% of the population has what is known as a Type II toxic reaction or IgG response to common everyday foods that you eat regularly. Unfortunately the foods that cause this toxic shock vary widely according to your individual system. In addition many Type II reactions are delayed reactions, so they are very difficult to detect on your own.

Antibodies are known as ‘Immunoglobulins' or “Igs” for short. Each individual has their own unique reaction to foods due to their own particular digestive process, their own history of specific intestinal infections, medications, parasites and their individual diet. As antibodies against the food appear in the blood, it triggers an immune reaction to substances that adversely affect the organism. Over time, these antibodies may form immune complexes, which are deposited in joints and other organs and may be responsible for many of the symptoms that are related to food sensitivity.

Facts & "Wows" about Your health!

A Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) article revealed that more than 75% of the money spent on health care is spent on chronic conditions. Current research indicates that a great deal of these chronic conditions are the direct result of food toxicities; easily treatable by simply removing the foods from your diet.

With more than 270 million people in this country, you will be shocked to learn that more than 2.9 billion prescriptions are written every year, generating more than $131.9 billion for the pharmaceutical companies. Many of these prescriptions mask the conditions caused by food toxicity. And, these prescriptions don't cure the condition, they simply help alleviate the symptoms (pain killers and other symptom-relieving prescriptions).

Over 43 million people suffer from arthritis. Arthritic pain is often the result of food toxicity.

Ear infections cause parents to take their children in for more than 20 million doctor visits - a symptom caused or aggravated by food toxicity.

More than 50 million Americans suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (abdominal cramps, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, etc.) this is almost always directly caused by food toxicities. Remove the foods and the symptoms go away.

“Eat Real Food”

During the month of March we are having the "Real Food Challenge."

Challenging ourselves and our readers to eat fewer processed foods and focus on eating"Real Food"

Join our food challenge!

So what do I mean by Real Food?

Simple…I mean foods that are in, or very near to, their natural state.

Our family will be making a few changes. One being the type of milk we drink.

Did you know?

  • Most modern milk comes from cows fed a disproportionate amount of grains. The most nourishing milk comes from cows being fed their natural diet of grass — the greener, the better.

  • Most modern milk is homogenized. The original fat globule membrane is lost and a new one is formed that incorporates a much greater portion of casein and whey proteins, potentially leading to milk related allergies.

  • Most modern milk is adulterated.

  • Most modern milk contains antibiotics.

  • Much modern milk contains synthetic growth hormones.

What do you think?
