FOOD INTOLERANCE TESTING
45% of the population suffer from food intolerance.*
Are you one of them?
What is food intolerance?
Food intolerance is frequently confused with food allergy, and people often think they have an allergy when – in fact – they are suffering from food intolerance.
Food intolerance can cause swelling and a huge range of symptoms including IBS, bloating, digestive problems, itchy skin, headaches, low mood and even weight gain. Food Intolerance could also be interfering with your weight loss or exercise regime.
The problems are caused by the foods and drinks we consume and the way our bodies break them down. The proteins in foods and drinks are broken down into smaller parts in order to be more easily digested into our body. However, larger parts can pass through without breaking down and sometimes our body reacts to them as though they are invaders – attacking them with antibodies called Immunoglobulin (IgG).
How can we help?
We are approved partners of Lorisian, Europe’s foremost supplier of laboratory IgG antibody testing for food and drink intolerances.
From a small finger prick blood sample, we can help you identify the foods and / or drinks that could be causing your symptoms. The blood sample is then sent to the Lorisian laboratory for analysis and tests are usually back within 14 days.
Once we’ve identified your problem foods, we help you exclude them in the healthiest way possible, with expert nutritional support and guidance.
We offer the following food intolerance tests:
Lorisian 100 – €235
Analyses your IgG antibody reactions to 100 food ingredients
Lorisian 150plus – €350

It’s recommended that food intolerance tests are done in conjunction with, or followed up by professional nutrition advice, so that any temporary food elimination is done under professional supervision, and that the results are interpreted in the context of your own individual case.
