Intolerance Testing

Intolerance Testing

The majority of the population suffer from intolerance's, whether these are causing visible symptoms or not. However, many people are unaware they have an intolerance, let alone what the intolerance may be.

Food intolerance's (not to be confused with food allergies) are also known as non-IgE mediated food hypersensitivity or non-allergic food hypersensitivity, and refer to the difficulty in digesting certain foods.

The most common type of intolerance is over-consumption or over-exposure. We all have different tolerance levels to different items and once this level has been reached, the body will begin to reject it, usually causing symptoms of intolerance.

However, intolerance's can also occur if you have never consumed the item. This happens because foods require a variety of enzymes to aid digestion and if your body is lacking any of these enzymes it makes digesting certain items problematic.

Unlike allergies, intolerance's can and do change regularly, depending on diet and lifestyle. This is why we recommend clients re-testing every 6-12 months.
