Food Intolerance Test

Our simple, painless test for food intolerance is, able to pinpoint potentially harmful foods that could be causing your symptoms. Our food allergy consultant can offer you advice on a sensible elimination diet, as well as a vitamin and mineral check which is also provided alongside basic nutritional counselling.

What does a food intolerance test involve

Over 120 substances which include common foods and drinks are tested during your visit with our food allergy consultant, plus vitamins and minerals deficiency.
The equipment we use include an electronic machine which measures the body’s resistance to specific substances contained in foods. If a substance is found to be causing a problem, it will affect the body’s measured energy resistance. The food intolerance test is completely painless and is best described as a ball point pen touching the tip of your finger upon a acupuncture point.

Are the foods you are eating making you feel ill?

Who can be tested?

This food intolerance test is suitable for anyone other than those with a pacemaker and any aged child subject to them being on solid foods. If you are taking prescribed medication this will not interfere with the test.

How many food intolerance tests will I need?

This is dependent on the individual, but we tend to find that only one test is necessary. It is generally advisable, however that at least one follow up appointment at our Woking clinic is made to revisit one month after the test, to monitor progress whilst carrying out any eliminations of food from your diet.

Will I have to avoid certain foods forever?

This will depend on whether your body can tolerate the food once it has been reintroduced into your diet, after an initial 4-week programme. In some circumstances this 4-week period will have to be extended, if, for example, the body’s immune and digestive systems need additional support to eradicate the underlying problem.
