What is a Food Intolerance Test?

Food allergy, food intolerance, food sensitivity; whatever you know it as, intolerances to certain foods is something that has become ever more common. However most people who do live with a food allergy or better termed intoleranceremain unaware, because their adverse reactions are often either cloaked by other more noticeable symptoms or just take their time showing themselves.

In fact 45% of the UK population suffer with the symptoms of food intolerance. So from just one simple blood sample, our food intolerance test allows you to finally enjoy maximum freedom from food intolerances. 

A food intolerance can be the underlying culprit in many disease states, especially those like:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Eczema
  • Weight Gain
  • Psoriasis
  • Skin problems – eczema, psoriasis, acne and blemishes

How Do I Test For a Food Intolerance?

At holistic first our experts can test for the most common food intolerances. We can also expand the test to cover more than 150 different food groups, chemicals, artifical flavorings and perservatives. We’ve partnered with Lorisian, Europe’s leading provider of food intolerance testing. The test is really simple; a small sample of blood is taken and sent to a laboratory where it is tested. Once the results have been collected we will book you in for a 30 minute follow up consultation with your nutritionist who will then advise you of the foods you are intolerant to, and suggest removal of these foods from your diet for a certain period of time. After removing these foods, many clients find a huge improvement in their health and vitality, along with a significant reduction or complete disappearance of symptoms. 

If left untreated, food sensitivity can damage the gastrointestinal system and contribute to many disease processes such as autoimmune diseases, skin conditions, weight gain and IBS. Take a proactive approach and book an appointment with Holistic First.
