Food intolerance is difficulty digesting certain foods and having an unpleasant physical reaction to them. Besides, our responses to foods and drinks vary significantly as individuals. An ingredient that may cause problems for one person could be completely acceptable for another. The most common food intolerance symptoms are bloating and stomach pains. Those usually come on a few hours after consuming the food.
At Lorisian, the experts refer to this as our personal “food fingerprint”. Discovering and understanding your food and drink intolerances†, as well as the effects they have on your health and wellbeing, is essential to ensure you make the best possible choices to balance your diet.
The “Premium food intolerance test” kit from “Yorktest” contains all you need to take a small blood sample (2 – 3 drops) in the comfort of your own home. Return your sample in the prepaid envelope provided (the UK only) to the laboratories. Expert laboratory technicians will then analyse this for reactions to 208 food and drinks. They will post your confidential results and additional support material to you within ten days.
When you have received your results and are ready, you can contact us to book your appointment with one of our qualified nutritional therapists. These half-hour sessions will provide you with support and knowledge to assist you in your new diet, ensuring you are confident in the changes you can make to improve your health and wellbeing. In our latest customer survey, 4 out of 5 customers told us that they had seen improvements in their health after following a programme, and 89% of those people did so within just one month of dietary change.
