Eating for Illness – Why Food Matters

By Lucy Rose Clinic

May 27, 2021

There is a famous quote that you would have seen before;

“Let Food Be Thy Medicine, and Medicine Be Thy Food”

That was by Hippocrates Born 460 BC. Can you imagine what he would say about our food today?!?!

Our food has dramatically changed since the advent of industrialisation. Refrigeration made fermenting moot, as did the use of new preservatives and additives. Taste and visual appeal overtook nutritional value, and food marketing is sales-focused.

Every bite we take literally can heal us – or promote disease.

The Lucy Rose Clinic puts a huge emphasis on food quality and diet in every person’s treatment plan for a reason. You simply can’t get well if you are not eating healthy food – no matter how amazing your supplements are!

Sometimes it can be hard to know exactly what you should be eating or supplementing. There is SO MUCH information out there, and trying to apply it in our day-to-day life – when we are not experts in this area – can be very hit and miss.

Have you ever wondered if what you are eating is even helping you?

Or if that supplement that sounded so good on a website promising health is even adequate for your needs?

In reality, supplement manufacturers are generally more interested in their sales than your health, and many products on the market are not strong enough, or pure enough to help a health concern.

We see it all the time. In fact, last week a lady came who had been on vitamin D all winter by her doctor’s recommendation, yet her vitamin D test result was still too low and affecting her immune system and mental health!

Even Healthy foods such as melon, celery, or macadamia nuts could be negatively affecting your health if you have an intolerance to them.

Our programs test 220 foods against your blood sample to discover scientifically which foods will help or hinder your healing journey.

Dietary triggers are right at the top of the list of drivers of inflammation affecting your energy, mood, and hormones. Your diet can be the biggest driver of inflammation due to the number of times we are putting food into our body, potentially fueling inflammatory responses in the gut which causes a cascade of inflammatory cytokines, and immune system stress that affects the entire body. These types of intolerances gradually build with repeated exposure and drive immune system imbalance.

Food Intolerance Test

This is the most advanced and comprehensive test offered for identifying food-specific IgG antibodies to foods we consume.

This is a new, state of the art, immunoassay based on Microarray Technology to detect food-specific IgG antibodies, from a blood sample.

Once you have your result, your healing begins! You simply avoid all foods in RED, limit foods in YELLOW and ORANGE, and eat the foods in BLUE.

In 3-6 months you can start reintroducing your RED foods again.

Below is an example of a patient’s food intolerance report. Once she started eating correctly for her own body, she lost over 10Kg!
