Food intolerances are an IgG immunity response to food nutrients (generally proteins) that an organism recognises as ‘toxins’ and consequently attacks them causing inflammation. An inflammation response that becomes chronic has been shown by research to be potentially at the base of many inflammatory illnesses.
I offer food intolerance testing in central Edinburgh premises. Tests are sensitive and accurate and involve a 3ml blood collection by use of a safety lancet and a collection tube. The sample and relevant paperwork are send to the labs and tested using ELISA assay technique.
During the Corona Virus Pandemic all services (except for phlebotomy) have moved temporarily online to abide by the Government regulations on social distancing. The kit will be sent directly to your home address together with a video for support on how to easily take the blood sample at home by yourself.
When I meet YOU during the consultation (currently only online) and I hear YOUR symptoms, I focus my attention and time during the appointment to listen to YOUR ‘story’: each detail adds to your physiological profile and allows me very quickly to understand whether a physiological imbalance may be causing your symptoms. I build a holistic image of your digestion through my note taking and targeted questions on possible ‘other symptoms’, which guide me from the very first appointment, to advise key dietary changes to help you resolve your digestive issues.
My clinical advice and dietary protocols are based on the latest science and research and always accompanied by nutritious and yummy recipes so that you are enticed to try new foods and increase variety in your diet (the secret to a healthy gut).
The food intolerance test results are a tool that allows me to:
- recommend ways to temporarily replace the nutrients to which you have become intolerant;
- help you understand how to use food and where to source it;
- suggest life style changes;
- target your health imbalances in a functional manner, to facilitate healing of the gut lining;
- support you in re-introducing those foods back in your diet once the symptoms have resolved.
These are detailed and extensive tests that cover from 40 to 200 foods according to your choice and need, including fully vegetarian and vegan food panels. Food print testing require a finger prick blood test and are sent to the laboratory for analysis. The results are available generally within two weeks along with a personalised report identifying problem foods.
