FOOD INTOLERANCE TESTING

Your favourite food may be affecting your health.... When we crave a food it may indicate that we have an intolerance to it. Allergy UK estimate that 45% of the UK population have an undiagnosed Food Intolerance and estimated 50% of people with a Food Intolerance crave the foods their bodies cannot handle.

Food Intolerance Testing is done using a simple blood test which is sent and analysed by CNS Laboratories who quantify IgG antibodies to the proteins in over 200 different foods.

If you suspect you have a Food Intolerance and would like a test, please contact me.
