Food Intolerance Test
Allergies stress the body and burden the immune system. The most common allergies are to wheat, cow’s milk and eggs. Symptoms of allergy include: tiredness, headache, oedema, skin rash and itching, blocked nose, itchy eyes, digestive problems, depression and hyperactivity in children. Most food problems are in fact an ‘intolerance’ and not a true allergy. This is where your food intolerance test helps.
Allergy Test also includes:
- Mineral & vitamin testing
- Animal danders
- Skin care products
- Soap products
Allergies can also be treated by eliminating immune system over-reaction. When there are many toxins in the body, they stress the immune system so much that it becomes over-sensitive to allergens. These toxins include mercury, petrochemicals, pesticides, pollens, moulds and fungi. Eliminating these toxins unburdens the immune system so that it is no longer over-sensitive.

Food allergies and sensitivities are on the rise, and yet the diagnosis is difficult, since symptoms vary from person to person. For example corn may cause: muscle aches in one person & stomach cramps in someone else.
Immediate or delayed adverse allergic reactions when eating specific foods include dark circles and puffiness under the eyes, chronic diarrhoea, malabsorbtion, chronic infections, chronic inflammation bloating, insomnia, swelling, cramping.
Diarrhoea is a very common result of food allergies, but stomach cramps, constipation and indigestion are other problems. Food allergies can also provoke hives, sore throats, hay fever, migraines and asthma attacks. Allergies can produce vague symptoms too, like emotional irritability, fatigue and anxiety.
Studies show most hyperactive children have at least one food sensitivity. Sensitivities to food, addictions and cravings, and being linked to candiasis, which can prepare the foundation for allergic response.
Certain allergies have the tendency to appear quite suddenly without warning, and they can disappear just as quickly. Delayed-onset allergies appear gradually. This is often true if the problem substance has been eliminated from the diet for some time and the body has been given time to heal itself.
A widely accepted diagnostic tool for pinpointing allergies is the elimination diet, on the basis of a simple, bland diet, or after a fast, suspect foods are reintroduced one at a time. Although this technique is time consuming, it is an excellent method for identifying problem foods.
Causes of Food Allergies
Food allergies is a term applied to a whole host of reactions caused by consuming various substances. In actual fact, allergies are only one in three possible causes of irritation. Allergies are caused by an overreaction of the immune system to a particular substance. What is often thought to be an allergic reaction may actually be a food intolerance because symptoms are the same or similar. While allergies are caused by an immune system response, food intolerance occurs when the digestive track lacks enzymes for proper digestion, as in lactose intolerance when the body lacks the enzyme lactose. Food sensitivities are a personal over sensitivity to a certain type of food, unrelated to an immune system response.
Any food or substance can be an allergen.
Common sources of food allergies are eggs, wheat, fish and shellfish, citrus fruit, nuts and berries. Allergy-causing food additives are particularly difficult to avoid, and can make dining out impossible. This works by bioresonance.
