Food Intolerance Test

A food intolerance is an abnormal reaction to certain foods that can manifest itself in several ways.  Food intolerances are not life-threatening, but can greatly impact our health in many different ways.  It is estimated that approximately 65% of the population could be affected.  They often go undetected and untreated because the reactions are delayed—up to 3 days after eating the food. Food intolerances lead to many chronic medical conditions.

Symptoms commonly experienced from food intolerances are:

      • Arthritis (pain & stiffness in joints)

      • Asthma

      • Fibromyalgia (pain & inflammation in muscles)

      • Increased mucous/ phlegm ie sinus, fluid in ear, post nasal drip

      • Bloating

      • Headaches & Migraines

      • Constipation & Diarrhea

      • High Blood Pressure

      • Gastritis

      • Itchy skin problems

      • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

      • Eczema, dermatitis & psoriasis

      • Lack of focus & foggy thinking

      • Sleep disturbance

      • Hyperactivity & Anxiety

      • Water retention

      • Runny Nose & Puffiness around the eyes

      • Weight Control Problems

      • Chronic Pain

      • Chronic Fatigue

What is the difference between a Food Allergy and a Food Intolerance?

The symptoms of food allergy occur quickly, usually within one hour.  The reaction is obvious and may be quite severe.  True allergies (like peanut allergies in children), which are associated with IgE antibodies, are suspected to affect only a small percentage of the population.   Symptoms usually involve swelling of the lips and throat; breathing difficulties; skin rashes; severe pain; vomiting or diarrhea.  Your medical doctor or an allergist will test for this type of IgE reaction.

Food sensitivities or intolerances (IgG antibodies reaction) affect many more people and can develop at any time during one’s life. Unlike food allergies, symptoms may be delayed for hours, days or even months after the exposure, making diagnosis more difficult.
