Food sensitivities and intolerances can have a serious impact on the way people live their lives. They are different from a food allergy but it is still so important that you identify your potential triggers with a food intolerance test. There are few food trends which have become so popular so quickly as the gluten-free movement. Think back to when you were at school, many people did not know that they were suffering from food intolerance and coeliac disease was not the phenomenon it is today.
When should you order a food intolerance test?
There is confusion over what causes certain responses in the body from certain foods. This is because the terms ‘food intolerance, food allergy and food sensitivity’ are often used interchangeably, even though they are different. You should order a food intolerance test if you are beginning to experience intolerance symptoms like headaches, a runny nose or bloat. If your bloated stomach occurs everytime you eat a certain food item, then it may be a food intolerance. This is when you should order a food intolerance test to see which items are causing your symptoms.
When should you consider a food allergy test?
If you think that you may be suffering from allergy symptoms, then we recommend you speak to a Doctor immediately. If you are experiencing any food allergy symptoms, which range from mild itching and hives to severe anaphylaxis, then please consult a Health Professional. We do not offer a food allergy test but we do provide information on what an allergy is and what you should look out for. If your doctor does not think you have an allergy, and your symptoms do not subside, then you should consider a food intolerance test.
What is a food intolerance?
Food intolerance is when the body fails to digest a food item properly. This could be caused by overindulging on that item or too much exposure, so it is important that you know what is causing your symptoms. Food intolerance does not involve the immune system, and that is why our expert lab technicians are able to use bioresonance hair testing in order to identify your food intolerances.
