It is thought that almost half of the population react adversely to foods that they eat. Whilst the effects of a food intolerance may not be life-threatening, the resulting symptoms can have a massive impact on a person’s quality of life. Food intolerance can cause a wide range of disruptive symptoms such as skin conditions, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, digestive problems, and a general feeling of being unwell.
Food intolerance tests use a very simple finger prick blood collection wand system. Because the finger prick system is so easy to use, the sample can be taken in your home, or I can do it for you in the clinic. The sample is then posted back to the laboratory (in a pre-paid envelope), tested and analysed for IgG antibody reactions to 100 food and drink ingredients. The results can provide a much-needed starting point for addressing your symptoms while we work on healing the root cause of the food intolerance and support the body back to optimal health.
