We are pleased to announce we can now offer our customers food intolerance testing via our partner Lorisian Laboratories
Over 45% of the population react adversely to foods that they eat, which whilst not life threatening, can have a massive impact on someone’s quality of work and home life.
The way that food can affect our everyday life is often difficult to explain and it is common for people to try and eliminate foods from their diet to help themselves feel better. Often they don’t know which foods to try and eliminate and have to guess. Many people don’t know that identifying food intolerances† can be an important element of optimising health and wellbeing.
Lorisian, has over 35 years’ experience, specialising in laboratory tests that measure food triggers (food-specific IgG antibodies). Our results offer a fast track or starting point for an elimination diet. The tests are aimed at those that may have food intolerances†, and those who want to optimise their diets by avoiding any foods that they are reacting to. Our aim is to promote wellbeing within the pressures of a modern lifestyle. There are 3 testing options available with reactions to 75, 100 or 150 different food ingredients tested.
It is recommended that you book in for a nutrition consultation to discuss your results and be supervised during the possible elimination of foods and their re-introduction afterwards.
How it works:
- Order your test
- Take the test at home – full instructions provided
- Post sample in pre-paid envelope provided. (UK only)
- The lab will send your results to our nutritional therapist, Jo Rowkins, who will then forward them on to you
- It would be recommended to book a nutrition consultation to discuss your results.
†Food intolerance is a condition with a range of symptoms including gut symptoms, bloating, headaches, migraines, low mood, fatigue, weight gain and skin problems. These symptoms must always be checked out by a Medical Professional.
