Food Intolerance and Allergy Testing
Reactions to food and drink can cause discomfort for many people. The elimination method, ie removing one food at a time, can sometimes find the cause but often this is inconclusive, particularly where there are multiple foods causing the problem.
Often the quickest route to establish whether there is a true food intolerance is with the help of a simple blood test which gauges an IgG, (a delayed) reaction to different foods. The test is wholly scientific, providing a conclusive, and graded, reaction to between 100 and 200 different foods from a single sample.
With the guidance of a Nutritional Therapist, people can eliminate the problem ingredients from their diet, without risking any nutritional deficiencies. Sometimes, once adequately rested and repaired, the gut can often heal itself to allow the reintroduction of previously problematic foods and drinks.
As well as intolerance testing, Cotswold Nutrition offers a whole range of hormonal and gut function tests, all undertaken by professional laboratories. Most tests are non-invasive involving either saliva, stool or urine testing. A full laboratory report is supplied as well as interpretation of the results in a consultation environment.
