Food Intolerance Testing

Food allergies and intolerances are linked to your body’s immune system. The immune system is the body’s natural defence against foreign invaders, such as viruses, bacteria, and harmful poisons. When you have a food allergy or are intolerant to a food your body doesn’t completely digest it, which allows incompletely digested food to enter the bloodstream where it is treated as an invader and is targeted by IgG antibodies.

If you are constantly eating the same food to which you have an intolerance to you are continuously putting your immune system and digestive system under stress. This places a huge demand on energy reserves as the immune system and digestive system repeatedly has to work harder to fight these challenging foods and detoxify your system.

Reactions to food sometimes produce inflammatory conditions and also produce a whole range of chronic health problems as well as unexplained symptoms. The symptoms are often masked which means they resemble the symptoms of everyday problems such as headaches, fatigue, and joint pains.

It is also known that certain food allergies and intolerances produce different reactions every time it's consumed, i.e. a headache one day and then an upset tummy the next. Masked reactions are commonly caused by the food we eat often. Some foods that we crave may make us feel temporarily better for a while but then have a big payback later on. Due to the delayed reaction, people do not always associate it with the particular food that caused it.
