What is food intolerance?
Food intolerance is frequently confused with food allergy, and people often think they have an allergy when – in fact – they are suffering from food intolerance.
Food intolerance can cause swelling and a huge range of symptoms including IBS, bloating, digestive problems, itchy skin, headaches, low mood and even weight gain.
Food Intolerance could also be interfering with your weight loss or exercise regime.
The problems are caused by the foods and drinks we consume and the way our bodies break them down. The proteins in foods and drinks are broken down into smaller parts in order to be more easily digested into our body. However, larger parts can pass through without breaking down and sometimes our body reacts to them as though they are invaders – attacking them with antibodies called Immunoglobulin (IgG).

The good news is once we establish your exact level, we can address it quickly through dietary changes or a supplement protocol. The test also includes: Ferritin (Iron) This is essential for energy release and vital cell functioning and is often tested by professional sporting bodies.
