Food Intolerance Testing – GOLD

Parkland Natural Health & Wellness-Studio.co.uk
Are you suffering from headaches, bloating, tiredness? These are often signs of food sensitivity as well as a food intolerance affecting your daily life. The Gold Food Intolerance Test is our most comprehensive food intolerance test which analyses your IgG reactions to 208 food and drink ingredients. So, you will be provided with precise results and nutritional support to help you replace your problem foods and optimise your diet.

What does it measure?

Food intolerance can occur when the body has difficulty digesting certain foods. When this happens over time, large food particles (proteins) may enter the bloodstream, and this can cause inflammation. When the digestive system processes foods and drinks, it brakes down the proteins within them into smaller fragments for easy absorption into the body.  Larger particles can pass through without breaking down. Therefore, sometimes the body reacts by attacking them using antibodies called Immunoglobulin G’s (IgG). Food intolerance can cause a wide range of disruptive symptoms such as digestive problems, eczema, migraines and headaches, fatigue, depression and low mood, joint pains and sinusitis.

Food intolerance symptoms

  • Abdominal Pain
  • Aches and Pains
  • Acne
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Diarrhoea
  • Eczema

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

  • Skin problems

  • Tension

  • Wheezing
For instance, symptoms of food intolerance can take up to 72 hours to appear after eating the trigger food or group of foods. Meanwhile, on average people who suffer from food intolerances* usually have around 4 or 5 trigger foods.

A word on Intolerance and Allergy

The term ‘food intolerance’ and ‘food allergy’ are often confused and are two very different things. Also, a genuine food allergy is relatively rare.  Besides, only about 2% of the adult population is affected. In short, a food allergy is a swift response by the body’s immune system to a specific food.  In this type of reaction, the body’s immune system mistakes a food for an ‘invader’ which often results in a rapid allergic reaction usually within minutes, but generally within a maximum of two hours. Moreover, this type of allergic reaction is commonly associated with responses to peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs and seafood. Food intolerance is quite different from a food allergy, and while the symptoms can impact the person’s quality of life, they are not life-threatening.  Food intolerances are much more common than food allergies.

What is food intolerance?

Food intolerance is difficulty digesting certain foods and having an unpleasant physical reaction to them. As individuals, our responses to foods and drinks vary a great deal. An ingredient which may cause problems for one person could be completely acceptable for another. The most common food intolerance symptoms are bloating and stomach pains, which usually come on a few hours after consuming the food.

How to find out if you are intolerant to foods?

At Lorisian, we like to refer to this as our personal ‘food fingerprint’. Discovering and understanding your food and drink intolerances†, and the effects they have on your health and wellbeing is essential to ensure you make the best possible choices to balance your diet.

How food intolerances can hinder weight loss

Before taking a Lorisian Test, Lauren suffered from Eczema for many years. She also experienced digestive discomfort and fatigue. Besides, Lauren said “I often wondered if there could be a connection with the food that I was consuming”.

“I had bad bloating, weight gain, no energy and was generally feeling miserable. Therefore, each day was a constant misery as I didn’t know what was causing me to feel like this. I had tried to cut certain foods out and eat healthy meals but there were still no changes in my symptoms.”
