Food Intolerance Testing

Food Intolerance Testing  Food Intolerance Testing at Total Balance Aberdeen

 

Food intolerance and sensitivities are becoming so much more common these days as food production methods change and the variety and quality of the foods we eat gradually reduces.

Food intolerances and sensitivities are different to food allergies. Food allergies can make you seriously ill, whereas symptoms of food intolerance may be either quite subtle or more obvious, such as:

  • fatigue or reduced energy levels, from feeling below par to exhaustion much of the time
  • preventing you losing weight; causing too much weight loss or weight fluctuation
  • digestive bloating, loose stools, digestive discomfort, nausea, vomiting or IBS
  • diarrhoea, constipation, Crohn's, ulceralitve colitis, coeliac, stomach or duodenal ulcers
  • unexplained aches and pains such as back pain or aching muscles, joint pain and rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis
  • headaches and migraines
  • sinus and respiratory problems such as rhinitis, hay fever-type symptoms, stuffy or runny nose, asthma or difficulty breathing.
  • oedema, bed wetting or frequent urination
  • eczema, itchy skin, frequent mouth ulcers
  • facial puffiness, discolouration around the eyes - "panda" eyes, itchy or puffy eyes
  • depression or anxiety, feeling spacy
  • susceptibility to frequent infections, intolerance to alcohol, insomnia, hyperactivity
  • and much more

 

There are a few types of food intolerance testing kits offered on the market, some of which I have shown below so you can choose which type will be most suitable for you.

"Just wanted to let you know how I'm getting on after my food intolerance 
testing at the start of August, and in a word the results have been 
"amazing"!  I'd guesstimate that my skin has cleared up about 90%! 
A real result, thanks so much!"           LK, Aberdeen
