Charleston Sports Medicine brings the best science to determine “leaky gut” syndrome to our patients. A simple oral and blood lab text is now the answer to a complicated diagnosis. Cyrex™ addresses the cross-connections between the body’s endocrine, gastrointestinal, and neurological systems which play a significant role in the development of today’s complex disorders.
Immunology is at the root of many chronic disorders that affect the ongoing wellbeing of women and men. Combining Dr. Bright McConnell’s knowledge of hormones, nutrition, fitness and bone health with this powerful laboratory test allows patients struggling with leaky gut syndrome to determine an individualized nutrition plan to alleviate symptoms. Cyrex’s research and education divisions provide in-depth scientific and practical knowledge, allowing Dr. McConnell to use the most updated standard of care in your diagnostic and monitoring process.
Healing your gut begins with a good nutrition plan. The Cyrex 2/10 test includes a Multiple Food Immune Reactivity Screen that tests your unique responses to dairy, eggs, grains, beans, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruit, fish, seafood, meats, herbs, spices, gums, brewed beverages, additives, and more. Call Charleston Sports Medicine at 843-284-5200 to schedule a time to take this test and get to the bottom of your gut health challenges.
The Science of Gut Health
- The duration of gluten exposure is a key factor in the development of other autoimmune diseases. The longer sensitive individuals eat gluten, the more likely they are to develop other autoimmune diseases. A 1999 landmark study published in Gastroenterology found that the duration of exposure to gluten in celiac disease patients affects the risk of developing other autoimmune diseases. The finding made age at diagnosis an important factor in the overall health of patients with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
- At The 2019 American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM), Dr. Vojdani lectured on “Gut to Brain Connections” in which he explained the connections among the gut, brain, body, and immune system. Gut health is a critical connection between physical and mental wellness.
