I use Lorisian Gold Tests – a trading brand of York Food Intolerance Tests. Now only £280 – usual cost of test alone is £222. The offer includes a one to one consultation plus food intolerance test measuring the IgG antibody response to over 130 foods.
IgG Food Intolerance Testing is a well established way of investigating a wide range of symptoms (see below) as well as being incredibly useful for diagnosed conditions such as Hashimotos thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, lupus…. the list goes on. The test measures your antibody response to a broad variety of foods and gives an indicator as to how much of a reaction you are having.
Approximately 70% of our immune system is in our gut, so this is why immune reactions to certain foods can effect the whole body. You may not even notice any gut related symptoms at all! I incorporate the results of your test into a broader, personalised support plan, as it provides a fantastic framework to work from and helps people stay motivated towards making the changes.
It’s important to note here that the foods do not have to be reduced/removed for life! When you remove/reduce trigger foods for long enough (and this time will vary from person to person), it allows healing to take place and at some point the foods can be reintroduced. By this time, your diet and health should be in a totally different state, so the body doesn’t over react to foods – often though, people find that although they reintroduce some foods, there are others that they feel better off keeping to a minimum.
