If you’ve had a chronic illness you’ll know that the regular tests available don’t always give you the answers you need. You’re told your tests results are normal but you’re still feeling unwell. The following tests can finally give reasons as to why you get bloated after eating or have intermittent gas and diarrhoea! Or why you feel tired even after a good nights rest.
“All disease begins in the gut” Hippocrates
Did you know that 70% of your immune health comes from your gut?
Did you know that not only does your emotional state affect your digestion but your digestion also affects your mental health?
So here’s the conversation we all dread…your digestive health!! Many people suffer with their gut but it’s a topic that most of us are
too embarrassed about to discuss or seek help!
Many of us experience symptoms regularly like:
but they’re the obvious ones! Did you know that other symptoms can also be linked to the gut like:
- Inability to concentrate
- Muscle/joint pain
- Halitosis (bad breath)
- Body odour
Our guts can become damaged over the years through bad diets, stress, illness, medications etc and sometimes we can experience some of the above and find it very frustrating trying different medication or supplements or cutting out different food groups in an attempt to uncover the causative factor. Through the tests we offer, we can uncover these causative factors to help alleviate those nasty symptoms.
Fitzwilliam Food Intolerance Test
40 Food Test. €135
93 Food Test. €255
In our current environment of processed, sugar-laden foods, our digestive tracts can easily become damaged. When our digestive system is no longer able to process particular foods, we can end up with a build up of many poisonous intestinal toxins. These toxins will eventually escape into the bloodstream, where they are transported throughout the body causing inflammation and infection in other organs and body systems.
A food intolerance to a certain food can be hard to pinpoint as unlike the immediate reaction you have with an allergy, the reaction with an intolerance is usually delayed by many hours or even days. For example, the cheese eaten on Monday could be the cause of Wednesdays asthma attack.
The Fitzwilliam FoodTEST – food intolerance test – is a blood test which measures IgG antibody levels associated with specific foods. These tests take place in Cambridge Nutritional Sciences Laboratory. There is a significant amount of published references indicating an association between elevated levels of these specific IgG antibodies and:
- Digestive Issues
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Migraine/ Headache
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Skin Disease
- Respiratory Symptoms
