Food Intolerance – are you suffering?
Food intolerance is the name we give to the condition which occurs when we react or become unwell after eating or coming into contact with a particular food or ingredient. It is estimated that up to 45% of the population suffer from some level of food intolerance.
Symptoms range from IBS, to eczema, asthma, bloating and fatigue and can lead to a host of other chronic health problems.
However, the intolerant food or trigger is often only half of the story and a more complete digestive and general health assessment provides a wider view of the problem and how to deal with it.
For example; the state of the digestive tract and immune system will also have a bearing on how the body is able to deal with certain foods. Low probiotic levels, gut pathogens and immune weakness will increase the chance that you will suffer from food intolerances.
Simply avoiding foods may not be enough, and in some cases may even lead to nutritional deficiencies which will have a further detrimental effect on your health.
At Bionetics we adopt a more rounded approach to food intolerance by including pathogenic (bacteria, fungus, virus and parasite) testing, along with toxic screening and nutritional imbalances. This not only provides you with an extensive ‘foods to avoid’ list but also advises you about how to improve your digestive and immune function and which nutrients your body needs more of.
In addition to the short term benefit of avoiding intolerant foods, you will be reducing the potential occurrence of future food related ill health and the chronic problems that can result from this.
How does the Bionetics Test work?
We use samples of hair to carry out our testing. Hair has become a very important factor in forensic and complementary medical science due to its ability to store information about an individual. Although relatively new when compared to more conventional blood screening, hair testing is proving to be a popular, non-invasive and cost effective alternative to normal tests.
The screening technology uses Bio-Field Resonance Scanning to build up a picture of the dietary, pathogenic, toxic and nutritional imbalances which could be affecting an individual’s health. This information is used to generate a personal report of the findings along with advice about actions and products that will help to correct the imbalances.
You simply need to follow the online instructions in order download an application that is sent to our Testing Centre for analysis. The results are available online or via post within 7 days of the receipt of your application.
How does it compare to other tests?
There is no other test which directly compares to the Bionetics Test and the factors it covers for 1 affordable payment of £54.95. Most food intolerances tests work by identifying key immune system markers like IgG and IgE and cost between £150 -£300 for a similar number of foods. However these tests do not include pathogenic, toxic and nutritional screens, which we feel are equally important.
Test accuracy is a big issue and one over which no single product can claim an outright advantage. Often, the tests are measuring slightly different markers, which, makes direct comparison very difficult. Also, food intolerance is a function of digestive and immune function and these two factors are in constant movement, which means that food intolerances will also change. True food allergies tend to be more constant as they are often linked to immune dysfunction which tends to change less frequently. Having said that, children often ‘grow out of’ severe food allergies as their immune systems develop to full strength, demonstrating that even these can be tackled.
Our advice is not to be over reliant on an exclusion-diet based on the results of any one test but to take a more balanced approach to food intolerance and dietary problems.
What our customers say
I am so grateful to you for the diagnosis. I did not realise how much food intolerances had contributed to the onset of my M.E. Within a few days of starting your course I began to feel the benefits - the first thing I noticed was that my face stopped being puffy, then I lost loads of weight. Little 'niggles' cleared up, and it has proved to be a real turning point for my M.E. - I now seem to improve a little every day! I have recommended your services to several of my friends and family.
