Professional advice on food intolerances in St Albans & Hertfordshire
Food Intolerance Testing
Food intolerance is not the same as an allergy, but it can still cause unpleasant symptoms. Whilst a severe allergy can be life threatening, an intolerance, although unpleasant, is not a threat to life.
Food intolerance tends to occur as a result of various digestive issues and can produce an endless range of symptoms. Temporary avoidance of identified foods can result in a huge improvement of symptoms.
Those suffering from food intolerance may not realize that they are sensitive to a particular food and continue to consume it. Whatever treatments they try, the symptoms are unlikely to improve until the offending food is eliminated from their diet.
It is not easy to determine which foods are causing symptoms, without delving deeper into our diet and possibly the use of laboratory testing. We now offer food intolerance testing. The test we use checks for 134 food and drink reactions and is a simple finger prick blood test which can be done in the comfort of your own home.
We always consider food intolerance when clients come to us with health problems. Should we discover either of these are a problem, we then work to support you by finding alternative foods and recipes.
Once problem foods are eliminated from the diet, sufferers can experience a profound improvement to their health.
PLEASE NOTE : Health problems should always be checked out with your doctor before assuming that food intolerance is to blame.
