Are Some Foods Making You Ill?

If so, a simple food intolerance test may reveal which foods are causing the problem.

Do you suffer from any of the following?
Bloating, lack of energy, headaches, constipation, weight problems, aching joints, anxiety? Then you may have an intolerance to some foods that you are eating.

You Are Not Alone

45% of the population suffer from food intolerance which, whilst not life threatening can cause many different symptoms.

Digested foods are usually broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption in the body. Sometimes larger fragments can pass through into the blood steam, causing your immune system to react to them as invaders, attacking them by using antibodies (known as IgG antibodies).

Symptoms can be slow to develop and can take hours or days to appear. These IgG antibodies can cause inflammation in the body and this, over time, can lead to some chronic disease. The good news is however is that once you know which foods your immune system is reacting to, we can take the appropriate action.

Prevention is the key

  • The first thing is to make sure we can identify these antibodies and the most effective way to do this is through a blood test. It tells us how your body is reacting to the different foods.
  • Every Tuesday and Saturday I have a nurse called Mandy who comes in to take the blood samples.
  • These are then sent off to one of two of the top intolerance testing clinics in the UK.
  • Using a small blood sample, the clinics can identify IgG antibodies raised to over 200 foods

Why is it important to know if you are intolerant to different foods?

Being intolerant to a food means that you will build up antibodies in your bloodstream. There is now increasing evidence that this can, over time, lead to inflammation and provoke your immune system into being ‘over-reactive.’ On-going inflammation is now being connected to some chronic and also some auto-immune diseases. Being aware of the foods you are intolerant to could be a key factor in helping you to keep healthy in the future.
