Do I Have Food Sensitivities or an Allergy?

Food sensitivities or allergies can be hard to recognise at first because the symptoms can vary so greatly from one individual to the next. Many people live with minor or major symptoms of food sensitivities for years without ever really knowing what the cause is. There is a long list of symptoms that can relate to food sensitivities and intolerance. 


How do food sensitivities / allergies develop?

Food allergies generally develop due to poor lifestyle habits, resulting in reduced digestive enzyme function, these enzymes are responsible for breaking down food. This can lead to a common condition called "Leaky gut syndrome" when gaps form in the vital gastrointestinal barrier. These gaps allow toxins, microbes, undigested food, waste and other tiny molecules to 'leak' out through the gut wall and into the blood stream. When this happens the body initiates an immune reaction to foods - resulting in a range of 'allergic' symptoms. 

How do I test for food sensitivities?
Our Clinical Nutritionist  can test for the most common food allergies from cows' milk, eggs, beans, nuts and cereals, etc by the most reliable method called the IgG Food Sensitivity Profile (Tests 98 foods). Food sensitivity tests are very simple. A small sample of blood is taken and sent to a laboratory where it is tested against various foods.According to the test results, out Nutritionist takes a holistic approach to construct an individual treatment plan including a diet guidance, which can help you find practical, effective ways to feel better naturally, without resorting to pharmaceutical drugs. When left untreated, food sensitivities can damage the gastrointestinal system and put you at greater risk of more serious health problems.
