What Is Food Intolerance?
The condition begins when the digestive system is no longer able to process particular foods as they pass down the digestive tract. The end result is the build-up of many poisonous intestinal toxins.
This toxic intestinal mix eventually escapes into the bloodstream. These toxins are then carried throughout the body where they cause infection and inflammation in other organs and body systems. The objective of the Test is to find the particular foods which are causing this toxic state.
Symptoms of Food Intolerance
• Bloating and other digestive problems
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome
• Sinusitis and Ear, Nose and Throat problems
• Weight problems
Allergy or Intolerance?
The term Food Allergy is used to describe those cases in which the adverse reaction occurs almost immediately, usually within one hour. The reaction is obvious and often quite violent, for example developing a swollen lip or tongue after eating peanuts, or becoming violently sick after eating shellfish. True food allergies are quite rare. They affect only a small percentage of the population and most often develop during childhood.
The term Food Intolerance, on the other hand, affects a great number of people and can develop at any time of life. The symptoms of food intolerance rarely occur immediately after the food is eaten. In fact, the reaction is usually delayed by many hours or even many days. For example, the cheese eaten on Monday could be the cause of Wednesday’s asthma attack. It is these delayed reactions which make the detection of the culprit foods a very difficult task without the help of expert laboratory testing.
How does the test work?
A small blood sample is taken. This sample is sent to the laboratory where it will be analysed against a range of food substances. The Fitzwilliam FoodTEST Clinic performs the laboratory tests. Fitzwilliam FoodTEST Clinic is an exclusive provider of Cambridge Nutritional Sciences Services in Ireland.
Your results will come back to the clinic in approximately 10-14 days. Once the results have been received, I will contact you to schedule a second appointment where I will perform a full consultation with you to review these results.
I will provide you with a guidebook and a set of easy-to-follow recipes in order for you to adjust your diet to any intolerance that has been detected. So call today and find out exactly which foods your body does not like.
