Which Zoomers Are Right For You?

The Vibrant Food Zoomers provide the most in depth and accurate look at true food sensitivities - because they are tests that examine immune responses to peptides within these antigenic foods, compared to all other food sensitivity tests which measure antibodies to whole proteins, which are rarely actually what our immune systems are exposed to in real life during digestion.

POSSIBLE REASONS FOR RUNNING A FOOD ZOOMER BUNDLE:

 

• You have an autoimmune disease

• You are especially sensitive (chemically sensitive, for example), manifesting in rashes, temperature dysregulation, coughing, running nose, watering eyes, excess sneezing after eating certain foods

• You’ve been unable to heal an issue despite multiple efforts - i.e. unable to lose weight despite great efforts, still have heartburn even with dietary avoidance, etc.

• You have altered bowel function (symptoms of IBS, SIBO, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, excess gas/pain)

• You have neurological or mood (example: anxiety) symptoms, even without any digestive/gastrointestinal symptoms

 

CONSIDER WHAT FOODS YOU EAT REGULARLY

What common food antigens & allergens are you eating regularly? Consider what you eat daily, weekly, and monthly to determine which foods are most relevant to test for.

Wheat Zoomer

The Wheat Zoomer is a foundational test and should be included in each Food Zoomer bundle.

 

The Wheat Zoomer goes far beyond just wheat and gluten sensitivity. It currently provides the most in depth panel for assessment of intestinal permeability (leaky gut) available, and can differentiate between permeability/leaky gut that is likely caused by gluten and permeability that is more likely to be caused by bacterial overgrowth.

1 in 7 individuals in the United States has a wheat-related disorder. Interestingly, many people who have a gluten or wheat sensitivity DON’T experience digestive problems. I have found wheat and gluten to be a “dealbreaker” in my clinical practice -- if people are still consuming gluten, or experiencing cross-contamination -- they may be unable to fully heal from chronic conditions and symptoms. 

There is no other test like the Wheat Zoomer on the market. It aids in the specific recognition of antibodies to wheat peptides – including gluten and non-gluten components, along with antibodies that indicate the presence of intestinal permeability/leaky gut. It is also a highly sensitive peptide-based array designed to detect autoimmune reactions to gluten.

This unique technology results in enhanced sensitivity and specificity compared to other platforms. The Wheat Zoomer has been validated at 99% specificity and sensitivity.

 

If you have the following symptoms, you may be a good candidate for the Wheat Zoomer:

  • Digestive discomfort/IBS

  • Low vitamin D levels

  • Difficulty concentrating or “brain fog”

  • Low energy levels/fatigue

  • Intestinal permeability (“leaky gut syndrome”)

  • Skin inflammation (eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis)

  • Chronic headaches or migraines

  • Weight gain/weight loss

  • Joint pain or numbness in the legs, arms, or fingers

 

The Wheat Zoomer can detect:

  • Intestinal permeability (“leaky gut syndrome”)

  • Celiac disease

  • Wheat allergy

  • Wheat germ agglutinin-related vitamin D deficiencies

  • Gluten ataxia and other neurological symptoms

  • Gluten’s role in dermatitis/eczema (skin-related disorders)

  • Gluten sensitivity

  • Wheat sensitivity

Corn Zoomer

Corn is a grain that is heavily used in gluten-free foods and, therefore, patients following a gluten-free diet that do not experience symptom improvement after fully eliminating gluten may benefit from testing to determine if they also have an underlying corn sensitivity.

Not only is corn widely prevalent in foods, but its various forms and derivatives are present in beverages, vaccines, medicines, supplements, and household items such as shampoo and body powder.

 

If you have the following symptoms, you may be a good candidate for the Corn Zoomer:

  • Bronchitis and asthma symptoms

  • Rashes (eczema)

  • Arthritis

  • Gas

  • Bloating

  • Fever

  • Fatigue

  • Diarrhea

  • Abdominal pain

  • Known intestinal permeability

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Skin itchiness and redness

  • Joint pain

  • Muscle stiffness and swelling

  • Excessive sweating

  • Weakness

Lectin Zoomer

Lectins are a large class of sugar-binding proteins that can be found in all forms of life. In plants, lectins are part of the natural defense against microorganisms, pests, and insects. Although lectin has been considered a low-level toxin, many members of the lectin protein family can agglutinate (clump together) and become problematic for human health.


If you have the following symptoms, you may be a good candidate for the Lectin Zoomer:

  • Autoimmunity

  • Intestinal permeability (“leaky gut syndrome”) (bloating, gas, and abdominal cramps)

  • Rheumatoid arthritis (painful and swollen joints)

  • Allergies (watery eyes, sniffling, sinus congestion, throat tightness, and itchy skin, mouth or tongue)

  • Fatigue and tiredness

  • Mental health problems (e.g., depression)

  • Skin rashes (redness and itchiness)

  • Hormonal fluctuations

  • Nausea

  • Frequent use of antibiotics

  • Following vegan/vegetarian diet

  • Allergies

  • Family history of autoimmune disorders, especially rheumatoid arthritis

Dairy Zoomer

A comprehensive peptide-level test to detect with the highest sensitivity and specificity whether an individual is sensitive to any of the multiple peptides found in cow’s milk.

The Dairy Zoomer will also help you to determine if cow’s milk dairy may be at the root of an individual’s symptoms or medical conditions, and guide nutritional interventions based on specific lab results.

If you have the following symptoms, you may be a good candidate for the Dairy Zoomer:

  • Abdominal pain during or after meals

  • Diarrhea

  • Bloating

  • Colic(in infants)

  • Vomiting

  • Eczema or other rashes

  • Mucous-filled cough

  • Runny nose

  • Eye irritation

  • Recurring ear infections

  • Other food sensitivities and allergies

  • Atopic dermatitis

  • Family history of dairy allergy

  • Advanced age

Mammalian Milk Zoomer

Designed to identify reactivity to non-cow milk dairy products from other mammals at the peptide level, eliminating concerns about cross-reactivity of similar foods. Specific milks measured: Goat milk, sheep milk, camel milk, donkey milk

 

Conditions and Symptoms Associated with Milk Sensitivities Include:

  • History of other food allergies

  • Atopic dermatitis

  • Family history of milk allergies

  • Advanced age

  • Abdominal pain

  • Diarrhea

  • Gas

  • Bloating

  • Colic

  • Persistent abdominal rumbling or gurgling

  • Vomiting

  • Eczema

  • Rashes

  • Cough

  • Runny nose

  • Eye irritation

  • Ear infections

Soy Zoomer

Soy is considered a highly antigenic food and is one of the 8 major allergens found in Western food processing. Because soy is so ubiquitous in the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industry in the United States, sensitivity to soy can often be difficult to detect through simple elimination diets alone. Testing for antibodies to peptides in soy is the only way to definitively assess a patient for soy sensitivity.

Soy is also a common cause of asthma-like symptoms in some sensitive individuals, and the Soy Zoomer can identify if those individuals may see symptom relief on a soy-free diet

Due to the highly genetically modified nature of soy in the United States, differentiating between sensitivity to GM or non-GM soy may aid in individualizing nutrition elimination and liberalization of diet in affected individuals

Because soy sensitive individuals may have concomitant sensitivity to peanuts or tree nuts, consider running the Peanut Zoomer panel and the Nut Zoomer panel for comprehensive testing


If you have the following symptoms, you may be a good candidate for the Soy Zoomer:

  • Atopic dermatitis

  • Eczema

  • Diarrhea

  • Excessive gas or bloating

  • Asthma-like symptoms

  • Wheezing

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Runny nose or watery eyes

Peanut Zoomer

Unlike peanut allergy (which produces IgE antibodies), an individual produces IgG and IgA antibodies against peanut antigens in peanut sensitivity. Peanut sensitivity symptoms, like all other food sensitivity symptoms, are often delayed (takes hours to days), hence diagnosis of the exact sensitivity is nearly impossible and often misdiagnosed.

 

Symptoms and Risk Factors of Peanut Sensitivity:

  • Headache – especially migraine

  • Nausea

  • Asthma

  • Fatigue and tiredness

  • Hyperactivity

  • Stomach pain and abdominal cramps

  • Stomach pain and abdominal cramps

  • Skin rashes (redness and itchiness)

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Age

  • Other sensitivities and allergies

  • Other sensitivities and allergies

  • Family history of sensitivities and allergies

  • Eczema

Egg Zoomer

Symptoms of egg sensitivity can often mimic or overlap with symptoms of other conditions, or other food sensitivities. Distinguishing between egg sensitivity and other conditions or food sensitivities can, therefore, be difficult without very specific peptide-level testing.


If you have the following symptoms, you may be a good candidate for the Egg Zoomer:

  • Excessive gas

  • Bloating

  • Stomach pain and cramps

  • Vomiting

  • Breathing difficulty

  • Headaches

  • Skin reactions

  • Joint pain

  • Heartburn

  • Joint pain

  • Irritability

  • Nervousness

  • Nausea

Gluten Free Grains Zoomer

Considering order the Gluten Free Grains Zoomer if you’re on a gluten free diet, but still experiencing:

  • Gas

  • Bloating

  • Fever

  • Fatigue

  • Diarrhea

  • Abdominal pain

  • Rashes (eczema)

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Skin itchiness and redness

  • Bronchitis and asthma symptoms

  • Joint pain

  • Muscle stiffness and swelling

  • Sweating and feeling weak
