Taking The Guess Work Out Of Your Diet

June 08, 2022

Do you feel Bloated, Tired, Constipated and Sluggish?

If you answered 'yes' to any of the above, and you're dreading starting another elimination diet that you know is doomed to failure almost before it's started - don't despair. The good news is that we have a food intolerance test that will take the guess work out of what food/s are making you sick. If you want to stop feeling sick after you eat, address digestive issues, skin issues, sinus and your energy levels this is where you need to start! Take our simple pin prick test and get tested against 400 foods, so you can get back to feeling your best!


How do Food Intolerances Develop?

Food intolerances begin when the digestive system is no longer able to process foods as they pass down the digestive tract. These undigested foods basically go off and putrefy within the intestines. Toxic gut bacteria feed off this undigested food. This creates a toxic gut environment. Bloating, indigestion, acid reflux, constipation, diarrhoea and general gut irritability is the result. Left untreated, these gut toxins begin to seep into the blood stream. There they trigger the immune system into over-response mode (autoimmunity) which can contribute to a number of chronic inflammatory disease. These conditions include Eczema, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Gastritis, Headaches, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Insomnia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Skin problems, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Constipation, Bloating, Migraines, Sinus, Diarrhoea, Water retention and Weight gain.

Our food intolerance test can detect the immune system’s IgG antibody response to individual foods. We will be testing 400 foods against this antibody, all we need is just a few drops of blood. This is a very simple pin prick test from the tip of your finger. If we discover you have foods you must avoid, we will provide this information for you, via email. This information is used to guide you on your food elimination diet. To help you with your food eliminations we will be also providing you with meal plans to help you through the process. We provide 10 options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a list of snacks and a list of treats with lots of recipes to keep your diet tasty and interesting. We provide you with images of the new food items you will now be able to include in your diet also.


What Are the Benefits of Getting Food Intolerance Testing?

1: IMPROVE YOUR GUT HEALTH AND IMMUNE SYSTEM
Your gut is home to 70% of your immune system. You can support your gut health by reducing your “immune load” and removing foods that may be causing it to overwork from your diet.

2: TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR WELLBEING
Taking a test can help you to take control of your overall health! Within 5 -7 days, you’ll receive your very own ‘food fingerprint’ and you’ll finally know which food and drinks you’re intolerant to. This allows you to plan your meals, with our meals plans provided to you and you can start living your life to the fullest!

3: HELPS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ALLERGY AND AN INTOLERANCE
Differentiating between a food allergy and a food intolerance ensures you will receive the right treatment plan. Simply put, intolerances occur hours or even days after consuming the food and can cause digestive problems. In contrast, an allergic response occurs quickly, and is triggered by the release of IgE antibodies, this usually causes an immediate reaction of some degree.

4. IMPROVES EVERY DAY LIFE
Managing a food intolerance can be difficult, but it is made far worse when you are limited by your knowledge of the precise triggers. When you understand which foods will cause a reaction, you can live life comfortably, without concern. Children can attend birthday parties, school events and other functions without fear, while teachers and other responsible parties can stay informed about all dietary requirements.

5 IT’S ACCURATE AND FAST
Intolerance testing is fast in terms of getting and delivering results, making it ideal for those that need to know quickly what those intolerances are. It is also accurate in those results, you know what the problem is and how to avoid it, making meal planning easier and avoiding the guess work. You will have results within 5 -7 working days.

6: IT’S INDIVIDUAL TO YOU
All of our bodies are made differently and have different strengths and weaknesses. Therefore when you have this food intolerance testing done you are making sure that you are protecting yourself by having an individual test for you that works for you and you alone. There is no “one size fits all” for testing because there is no “one size fits all” for your body.

The Bonus of intolerance testing
While an intolerance test is not intended as a cure-all situation for every problem in your life, it does offer a lot of benefits that can positively impact your overall health and wellness. Identifying a food intolerance gives you the power to improve your quality of life one meal at a time in the future.

Knowing the true cause of your mystery symptoms and how to defeat them will help you enjoy a better quality of life. Don’t you deserve that? We think so.
