Food Intolerance Tests

Many of my clients are confused about food and feel that foods that they eat are making them ill. It is very difficult to find out which foods, simply by elimination as there are many hidden foods and some foods react immediatedly and some foods can take 24 hours to react. If you continue to eat intolerant foods your symptoms will get worse, however, if intolerant foods are removed and the gut repaired it is often possible to re – intoduce after 3-4 months .

Symptoms commonly include digestive symptoms such as, pain, bloating, diarroea, constipation and gas as well as many systemic symptoms such as the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Constipation/diarrhoea/bloating
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Migraine
  • Water retention
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgis
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Depression
  • Gastritis
  • Itchy Skin
  • Weight Control Problems

The clinic is working with Cambridge Nutritional Sciences to scientifically diagnose food intolerance.

IgG antibody response can be measured by taking a simple finger prick blood sample which is collected into a small glass capillary tube. Using a precisely measured volume of blood leads to greater reliability and reproducibility of results.

Your treatment Plan will be as follows:

Remove: your test may show a mild ,moderate or strong reaction some foods that youhave been eating. You will be advised about eating a healthy diet with elimination of intolerant foods.

Replace: You will be advised how to replace any intolerant foods with healthy foods to provide essential nutrients for energy and health.

Re- inoculate: You will be advised to take pro biotics to improve your gut immunity and digestion.

Repair: You will be advised to take enzymes and glutamine to repair ‘leaky gut’ which may be the cause of your intolerance.

Re- introduce: You may be able to re- introduce some foods after 3-4 months.
