Not to be confused with food allergies, food intolerances can affect you without
immediately apparent symptoms. However, over time, continual ingestion
of a food you are intolerant to can manifest in a host of different ways. You may feel constantly tired, suffer with headaches (or migraines), a recurring skin condition, gradual weight gain, digestive issues etc, any or all of which could be the result of a food intolerance. In my experience, unidentified food intolerances lie behind most (if not all!) health conditions, including auto-immune diseases.
No matter which of the following testing methods you choose, your appointment will include discussion on your digestive health and any other symptoms you may be experiencing. We also go through your diet and will provide alternative ideas should any intolerances be identified.
