Food Intolerance Testing
As a registered Lorisian Practitioner, I can provide home-to-laboratory food intolerance tests.
Lorisian, via its parent company YorkTest, specialises in offering laboratory tests that measure food-specific IgG antibodies; known as food intolerances. With over 35 years of excellence in laboratory diagnostic testing, they are Europe’s leading provider of food and drink specific IgG antibody testing.
Digested foods are usually broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption in the body. Sometimes larger fragments can pass through into the blood stream, causing the body to react to them as invaders, attacking them using antibodies called immunoglobulin G (IgG).
On average it is suspected that around 45% of the UK population has a food intolerance which, whilst not life threatening can cause a range of symptoms from bloating, discomfort after eating, lethargy, headaches, mood swings, symptoms of depression and many more.
A recent study has shown that those who eliminated trigger foods based on food-specific IgG test results had reductions in weight, body mass index, waist and hip circumference and improvements in all indicators of quality of life that were measured. The quality of life indicators included physical and emotional wellbeing, mental health, social life, pain levels and vitality.
If you suspect certain foods are causing you symptoms, a simple home to lab finger prick test is all that is needed for the expert laboratory team at Lorisian to test and analyse the sample to identify an individual’s food intolerance.
There are no needles, just a simple finger prick blood collection wand system, to take a small blood sample; just a few drops of blood which is so easy to use, that a sample can be taken anywhere.
This test kit can be sent out to your home address or it can be done at the Sacred Tree clinic.
The sample is then posted back to the Lorisian Laboratory (in a pre-paid envelope), tested and analysed for IgG antibody reactions.
You can choose from testing 100, 150 or up to 208 common food and drink ingredients.
