Food Intolerance Testing

It is estimated that food intolerances affect over 40% of people and can significantly impact health. Unlike food allergies, symptoms of food intolerance generally come on gradually and though not immediately life-threatening, can still leave the sufferer feeling extremely unwell.

Food intolerance is associated with antibody-antigen reactions and consequent inflammation. This can cause a variety of complaints including inflammatory bowel disease and arthritis. Even before inflammation becomes a definable disease, sufferers of food intolerance may complain of lethargy, mental dullness, headaches, skin complaints, joint pains and other symptoms that can persist over years. In the early stages, these symptoms cannot be easily diagnosed medically. Food intolerance can also cause difficulty in achieving or maintaining a healthy weight.

If you have one or more of the following symptoms you may have a food intolerance:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Bed Wetting
  • Bloating
  • Coeliac Disease
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Diarrhoea
  • Eczema
  • Fatigue
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Migraines
  • Nasal Congestion
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Weight Gain
