Food intolerance may produce a variety of symptoms including:
• Anxiety ( acute or chronic ) • Arthritis • Asthma • Bed wetting
• Bloating • Bronchitis • Chronic fatigue syndrome • Constipation
• Diarrhoea • Fibromyalgia • Gastritis • Headaches
• Inflammatory Bowel disease • Insomnia • Irritable Bowel Disease • Itchy skin problems
• Malabsorption • Migraine • Sleep disturbances • Fluid retention
• Weight Control problems
The symptoms of food intolerance can be delayed for many hours or even days and for this reason it is often difficult to identify the problem foods. Sufferers of food intolerance frequently complain of lethargy or “fogginess “and a general feeling of unwellness. These symptoms often persist for years.
FOOD DETECTIVE is a test for food intolerance that is performed in the clinic. It tests for IgG antibody reactions to 59 commonly eaten foods. The test is performed using a blood sample from a finger – prick that is diluted then added to the FOOD DETECTIVE testing tray ((containing small spots of food protein extracts.) In subsequent steps, the use of detector and developer solutions identify the presence of food antibodies through the appearance of one or more blue spots on the tray. FOOD DETECITVE gives results in just 40 minutes. It’s simple, safe, accurate and fast.
FOOD DETECITIVE tests your IgG antibody reaction to the following foods:
CEREALS: Corn, Durum wheat, Gluten, Oats, Rice, Rye, Wheat.
