Food Intolerance Test
Welcome to Ka-Toning Food Intolerance Testing Clinics based in Cookstown at the heart of Mid Ulster and Kilrea in the Causeway coast and Glens Borough.
Ka-Toning has over 15 years’ experience in helping those suffering from Food Intolerance problems.
Ka-Toning has provided a non-invasive Food Intolerance screening service for over 15 years in Cookstown and Kilrea areas, and helped thousands of people improve their health by identifying and helping them eliminate many of the base underlying imbalances which have caused their health problems.
Clients that have attended our clinic have suffered from a wide range of health problems including food intolerances, IBS, chronic fatigue, headaches, bloating, sinusitis, acne, eczema, fibromyalgia, asthma, constipation, arthritis, thyroid imbalance, anxiety, rashes and more.
Identifying Your Food Intolerances
Identifying the root cause of ill health is what we are concerned with. Screening technology provides our practitioner with all the information they need to do just that. It ‘stress tests’ the body’s energy system to screen for a whole range of potential problems.
What is a food allergy?
Genuine food allergy is rare. About 2% of the population (and 8% of children under the age of three) are affected. A Food Allergy is a rapid and potentially serious response to a food by your immune system. It can trigger classic allergy symptoms such as a rash, wheezing and itching. The most common food allergies among adults are to fish, shellfish, and nuts – including peanuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, and brazil nuts. Children often have allergies to milk and eggs as well as to peanuts, other nuts, and fish.
What is a food intolerance?
Food intolerances are more common than food allergies. This is what we specialise in here at Ka-Toning. The symptoms of food intolerances tend to come on more slowly, often many hours after eating the problem food. Typical symptoms include:
Bloating and Stomach Cramps | Constipation or Diarrhoea | Tiredness or Fatigue | Unexplainable Skin Rashes | Candida and Yeast Problems | Headaches and Migraines | Sinus Pain
It is possible to be intolerant to several different foods. This can make it difficult to identify which foods are causing the problem. Food intolerances can also be difficult to tell apart from other digestive disorders that can produce similar symptoms, such as inflammatory bowel disease, gastrointestinal obstructions, or irritable bowel syndrome.
Food Intolerance may be a Digestive Problem
Food intolerances may also be an inability to properly digest certain foods. In some cases, food passes right through the body before digestion is complete – so is eliminated only partially processed like milk products causing diarrhoea. In other cases, some foods have components which attack the lining of the gut and damage it every time that food is eaten (like Celiacs with gluten). Fortunately, most food intolerant people recover fully when the offending food is avoided.
Direct problems such as severe abdominal cramps, bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea, and haemorrhoids are common. However, the indirect problems associated with poor absorption can be much more harmful. When food leaves the body only partially processed many vital nutrients are lost too. People with food intolerance typically catch viruses easily, many have dry skin, hair and nail problems and tire easily. Some become deficient in iron or calcium and suffer a further series of health issues like anaemia or osteoporosis.
Many food intolerant people are underweight due to their inability to get full nutrient value from foods. Of course, with diarrhoea there is the constant risk of dehydration especially among children and elderly people. Others can be overweight often from an interference with the thyroid gland causing a disruption to normal metabolism.
If you are suffering from food intolerances, environmental allergies, IBS, bloating, lowered metabolism, or hormonal disruption, consider taking one of our food intolerance or bodytalk sessions to pinpoint some of the underlying causes.
Could it be another type of food intolerance or condition?
Sometimes it is not clear which food is causing a problem. The only reliable way of identifying such a food intolerance is through an exclusion diet, or by having a test for Food Intolerances.
Coeliac Disease is a common digestive condition where a person has an adverse reaction to gluten. However, coeliac disease is not an allergy or an intolerance to gluten. It is an autoimmune condition where the immune system mistakes substances found inside gluten as a threat to the body and attacks them. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley that damages the intestine of people with coeliac disease. Symptoms include diarrhoea, bloating and weight loss. Coeliac disease can be accurately diagnosed with a blood test and biopsy.

What happens during an appointment
Your appointment will take in the region of 20-30 minutes. We use a detailed health questionnaire to gain a fuller picture of your health, lifestyle, diet, past and current medical problems to assess how effectively your body is working now and how this can potentially be improved.
We will then carry out your Food Intolerance Test using our diagnostic screening system. The client remains fully clothed and will feel nothing throughout the screening process. The practitioner runs the tests and the results are evident straight away.
We will then discuss the test results, after which you will receive some initial recommendations and advice to ensure optimal results of symptom free are achieved.
