It could be that you are one of the 45%* of the population suffering from food intolerance. Food intolerance is different from food allergy in that symptoms are delayed, and usually more than one type of food is causing the problem. Symptoms of food intolerance are not life threatening, but they can still have a major impact. Often people with food intolerance take medicines to try and ease their symptoms rather than considering that food could be the cause.
Typically each food intolerance sufferer will have their own pattern of symptoms and a unique “finger-print” of foods that they are reacting to. Working out which foods are causing particular symptoms is not easy when, unlike food allergy, food intolerance symptoms appear up to two or three days after eating the particular foods. You may be eating your problem food or foods every day without realising it.
There is a simple solution which is a test for food intolerance which can be obtained from Brookes Pharmacy in Bandon. The Lorisian Food Intolerance Test is a simple finger-prick blood test that analyses for IgG antibody reactions to foods in blood. You can collect the finger prick of blood with the help of your Pharmacist and the sample is sent away for analysis at a fully accredited laboratory using hospital standard test methods. The test results tell you exactly which foods you are reacting to so that you can eliminate them from your diet and start feeling better.
Based on years of research, 91% of Lorisian customers would recommend the test on offer, and scientific data collected from over 5000 users of the test show that over 3 out of 4 people feel better after acting on the results, the majority within three weeks.
Paula Radcliffe – Olympian and World Marathon Record Holder
“Olympian and world marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe told us that she started to suffer from symptoms that were so unbearable it was affecting her training.
Her test came back informing her she had IgG antibody reactions to egg, chicken, wheat, tomatoes and dairy.
After some time on her new diet Paula returned to YorkTest for a retest of her FoodScan. Her results came back as a surprise as she learned that she was reacting to blackcurrant, yeast, soya bean, gluten and chilli pepper. Paula was advised on how to best eliminate these foods from her diet without taking away their key health benefits.”
