Food Intolerance Test + Consultation £130
Why have a food intolerance test?
When addressing health and diet food intolerance testing is a useful place to start as it can indicate the general health of the digestive tract. It also highlights food that should be temporarily excluded. Food intolerance tests can help you to understand why you may experience digestive problems such as bloating, constipation and diarrhoea, cramping, flatulence and more. Food intolerance can be a contributing factor in conditions like IBS and inflammatory bowel disease and can also be the cause of seemingly unexplained symptoms. These might include fatigue, acne, and eczema, hives, acid reflux/ heartburn and indigestion, stuffy nose, catarrh and excessive ear wax etc.
The food intolerance test gives results within 50 minutes. This means you’ll leave the session knowing what foods are problematic for you and how to go about working towards reintroducing them. Food intolerance test results need to be interpreted with care. You should not avoid the problematic foods forever. As part of the consultation we’ll show you how you can enjoy these foods in the future.
Food intolerance is usually a sign that there is an imbalance within your gut. Food intolerance doesn’t just suddenly appear; it is caused by something. During our consultation we’ll try to work out what this may be and discuss an action plan to correct this imbalance. Our goal is to help you avoid developing further intolerance and heal any intolerance you may already have.

What are the limitations of the test?
- Food intolerance tests measure your IgG immune reaction to foods because an IgG reaction is most commonly associated with food intolerance. It is not uncommon to have other types of immune reactions, for example IgE, IgM, and IgA. This intolerance test will not detect these types of immune reactions and therefore, may not detect every food intolerance you may have. It is possible to test these other types of immune responses, however it is costly. If you would like information on this more advanced testing please don’t hesitate to ask.
- This test will not test for enzyme deficiency intolerance, such as lactose intolerance, as a different type of test is required for this.
- This test will not test for food intolerance caused but gut bacterial imbalances.
- As this test is measuring the amount of antibodies in your blood to foods, it may not detect intolerance to foods that you have been avoiding for 3 months or more.
With these limitations in mind, this test is useful as a starting place. We insist on having the consultation alongside the intolerance test so that we can assess for these other types of intolerance, as well as other factors that may be contributing to your symptoms.
