Intolerance TestingImprove your health by optimising your nutition.

Essentially food intolerance is your body’s abnormal reaction to certain foods which can manifest itself in a number of ways.

What is Food Intolerance?

The complex way food affects our everyday lives is an emerging area and diagnosing the cause of symptoms which seem to be ‘unexplained’ is often difficult. People who experience some of the symptoms of food intolerance are often led by the medical profession and the media to believe that their condition is ‘all in the mind’ and are treated for the physical manifestation of the condition rather than the cause. However there are now answers to your questions and a food intolerance test can identify the cause of your symptoms leading to long term relief.

Although not life threatening like a food allergy, food intolerance should never be underestimated as its impact on sufferers can be significant, severely impacting on their ability to live normal healthy lives. Food intolerance is extremely widespread and it is estimated that 45% of the population could be affected. Many people with food intolerance experience more than one symptom. Symptoms can often be vague and the root cause of the problem, food, is not always correctly diagnosed. Sufferers often complain of seeming to be in a ‘fog’, feeling bloated and being tired all the time.

Food allergy is not the same as food intolerance.

But the two are frequently confused. A classical food allergy (such as peanut or shellfish allergy) is usually characterised by an immediate and often severe reaction of the immune system to exposure to a specific food.

The symptoms of food allergy include sneezing, rashes, skin irritation, swelling, runny nose, fatigue, diarrhoea and vomiting. Normally symptoms occur within a few minutes of eating or coming in to contact with the offending food, although they can be delayed by up to two hours.

What are the Benefits?

So many symptoms can be caused by a food intolerance. They can range from severe headache, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine and skin or respiratory conditions. Realising that the foods you are eating is a driver for particular symptoms can be a huge step in reducing your symptoms and speeding up your recovery. In fact, following the elimination of problem foods, many sufferers realise that they had been experiencing minor symptoms as a result of intolerance for their entire lives.
