IgG Food Intolerance Testing is scientifically validated and helps to identify which proteins of certain foods are causing an unwanted inflammatory response in the body.
What are the symptoms of food intolerances?
There are a variety of symptoms which may indicate food intolerances:
- Low energy levels
- Decreased concentration (e.g. 'brain fog')
- General feeling of unwell
- Weight control problems
- Nutritional malabsorption (e.g. deficiencies)
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
- Irritable skin (e.g. itching)
As symptoms are not life threatening, individuals may live with these symptoms for several months or years before they are diagnosed.

Treating Food Intolerances
If you test positive for any of the food groups in the test, the simple act of reducing or eliminating the food from your diet for a certain period of time will provide enormous benefit. The amount of time the food is reduced/eliminated in the diet will depend on your regular intake of that specific food; your dietitian will advise of recommended time frames for your specific situation.
