Cranberry

Optimal Result: 0.3 - 2.4 ELISA Index.

Cranberry is commonly too bitter to be eaten fresh but may be sweetened and preserved as sauce, chutney, jelly or pastry filling, or bottled as juice. Cranberry juice ‘cocktail’, with other juices used for sweetening, is a popular commercial product in the US. In the United States and Canada, cranberries are traditionally associated with Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. The fruit is even used to make gravy. Canned whole cranberries and cranberry sauce and jelly are commercially available, as are frozen cranberries. Dried cranberries can be used like raisins in baked goods or as snacks. A tea is made from the leaves.

Native Americans used the berries, twigs, and bark for medicinal purposes. An infusion of the plant has been used to treat cases of slight nausea.

In recent years, cranberry products have been increasingly marketed as a natural remedy for recurrent urinary infections. Cranberry appears to inhibit the attachment of pathogens to uroepithelium and may decrease the number of symptomatic urinary tract infections.

The juice of the fruit is used to clean silver. A red dye is obtained from the fruit.

What does it mean if your Cranberry result is too high?

Remove this item from your diet or minimize your exposure to it.

Elevated levels of IgG/IgA reaction to a certain food does not necessarily mean you have an intolerance, but research shows that by eliminating foods that cause an the reaction, you can potentially improve certain food-related symptoms - including gastrointestinal distress, headaches, dry and itchy skin, and fatigue. Please keep in mind that reactivity does not necessarily correlate directly with symptoms, so your results are meant to guide you through the next steps of the process.

Elimination of IgG/IgA positive foods may improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, AD(H)D, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and epilepsy, according to numerous clinical studies.

IgG/IgA food test results are often used to develop food antibody-guided exclusion/ elimination diets. The implementation of such diets has been shown to alleviate symptoms associated with nonceliac gluten sensitivity and food sensitivity-induced atopic conditions, reduce the frequency of migraine headaches, decrease the occurrence of diarrhea, decrease failure-to-thrive among children with cystic fibrosis, reduce symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, improve rectal compliance, decrease stool frequency in Crohn’s disease, prevent seizures and hyperkinetic behavior in children with epilepsy, and ameliorate kidney function in glomerulonephritis. Food elimination diets also hold promise for the improvement of behaviors associated with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
