Intolerance & Other Health Testing
Information is the essential when your body reacts unexpectedly to food. Intolerance tests give us the insight we need and takes guess work out of the equation! If tests prove an intolerance, simple dietary alterations could be the answer to your current health problems.
Over 45% of the population react adversely to foods that they eat, which whilst not life threatening, can have a massive impact on quality of work and home life.
The way that food can affect our everyday life is often difficult to explain and it is common for people to try and eliminate foods from their diet to help themselves feel better. Often they don’t know which foods to try and eliminate and have to guess. Many people don’t know that identifying food intolerances can be an important element of helping to optimise health and wellbeing.
York Test has over 30 years' experience, specialising in laboratory tests that measure food triggers (food-specific IgG antibodies). The results offer a fast track or starting point for an elimination diet. The tests are aimed at those that may have food intolerances, and those who want to help optimise their diets by avoiding any foods that they are reacting to. Our aim is to promote wellbeing within the pressures of a modern lifestyle. There are 3 testing options available with reactions to 75, 100 or 150 different food ingredients tested.
Food intolerance is a condition common with a range of symptoms including gut symptoms, bloating, headaches, migraines, low mood, fatigue, weight gain and skin problems. These symptoms must always be checked out by a Medical Professional. If you have seen a Medical Professional but have not been given a diagnosis for your symptoms then you may be suffering from food intolerance which is easily tested.
