Why CEDS Testing?
If there is damage to the mucous membranes anywhere along the digestive tract, it can allow undigested food components to cross into the bloodstream. Once these large undigested foreign particles have entered the bloodstream the immune system recognises them as threat and immediately launches a number of defence mechanisms to remove and neutralise them. This creates an overactive immune system and will consequently produce excess antibodies.
These excess antibodies can then rupture mast cells (immune white blood cells) that contain histamine. Excess histamine can cause inflammation anywhere in the body. Once this inflammation accumulates in a certain area, we give that inflamed area a name. In the joints it can cause or aggravate arthritic pains, hence termed arthritis. In the respiratory tract it can cause inflammation of the sinuses, trigger asthma or produce excess mucous. In the nervous system it can cause or aggravate headaches, migraines, depression, tiredness and exacerbate ADHD. In the skin it can cause or aggravate rashes, eczema, psoriasis and hives.
