Food Intolerance Testing
Food Detective Food Intolerance Testing identifies foods causing food specific IgG antibody production which may be involved in various conditions such as food intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, eczema and arthritis.
The reaction tray is spotted with food protein extracts. A small blood sample is taken from a finger-prick and is then diluted and added to the tray.
In subsequent steps the use of detector and developer solutions identifies the presence of food antibodies through the appearance of one or more blue spots on the tray. Reference to the food layout plan allows the foods causing antibody production to be identified. Once identified, the trigger foods may be eliminated from your diet.
The test is safe, simple to use and gives accurate results.
Food Intolerance Testing appointments last one hour so that Fiona can take a verbal case history from the client and make additional recommendations about dietary and lifestyle factors that could help to optimise their client’s health. Many client’s find this really useful especially if the test result is negative.
Test results, recommendations and handouts are then provided for the client to take away with them.
