Why Do I Need A Food Intolerance Test?

There is growing proof that a lot of chronic disease could be due to diet. Processed foods, too much sugar in your diet, hypersensitivity to wheat and dairy, plus other foods that your body is struggling to cope with. Or do you simply over eat a few types of food

Chronic problems like:

Indigestion; IBS: Skin conditions; Joint pain ; Period problems; Anxiety; Depression; Hay fever; Sinusitis; Constant tiredness; Sleep disorders; headaches to name but a few.

These are just a few of the imbalances that can be caused by a simple food intolerance.

Can Babies and Toddlers Have a food intolerance, food sensitivity, or food allergy?

Yes! We have found health problems: like eczema; constant ear infections, coughs, and colds; tummy upsets; sleep problems; hay fever; even moods can be related to foods their body is not able to process properly.

How Many Foods Are Tested ?

We test 400 foods, plus dehydration & toxic levels, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, these can all be a maintaining cause of illness or a general feeling of being unwell.

This will help regain your body's natural balance: when you are aware of foods your body struggles to deal with, changing your diet, drinking more water and reducing your toxic intake, is a good place to start.

Do I have a wheat or a gluten intolerance ?

What is Gluten

It is a mixture of two proteins present in grains, especially wheat, which is responsible for the elastic texture of dough. Gluten is a family of proteins found in grains like wheat, rye, spelt and barley. Of the gluten-containing grains, wheat is by far the most commonly consumed.
The two main proteins, in gluten are glutenin and gliadin. It looks like playdo its the substance (the glue)that binds and shapes bread etc.

What is guar gum?

Guar gum is a gluten-free thickening ingredient made from the guar bean. It also acts as a binder and volume enhancer and is used in gluten-free baking to help provide the structure that normally comes from gluten.
It can work like a laxative if consumed in large quantities.

Substitutes: for xantham or guar gum are:- psyllium husk, ground chia seeds, and ground flax seeds these can all be used as substitutes for xanthan and guar gums. Use a one-to-one substitution.

Gluten Free Products

(in the free from section of the supermarket)

These products are low in amino acids, B vitamins, and iron.
They also contain fermented sugars
Oligosaccharides
Disaccharides
Monosaccharides
Polyrols
Fructose corn syrup may also be used
not as healthy as you may think, so if you are Grain intolerant and not gluten intolerant and you are eating these free from foods, you may well find more symptoms appear due to the fermented sugars in these products.  
A food intolerance test can put your mind at rest, or an elimination diet but be sure to keep an accurate food journal.

Natural Gluten free:

Rice.
Cassava.
Corn.
(maize)
Soy.
Potato.
Tapioca.
Beans.
Sorghum.
Semolina.

The Good News is

People get confused with Wheat Intolerance and Gluten Intolerance. In our experience 95% of people are Wheat or Grain Intolerant, and not Gluten Intolerant although the symptoms are very similiar, they are not usually as servere as being gluten intolerant. But can still be very distressing

Wheat intolerance symptoms

Wheat is tricky to completely remove from your diet as it appears to be in everything, however if you drastically reduce your intake this could be enough to help your body get over difficulty with digesting wheat. You may think you have no problem with wheat but the symptoms can be tiredness, bloating and a general sluggish feeling in your body. It can also result in poor absorption of other foods as it clogs the colon resulting in your body becoming toxic and acidic.

below is a list of the more frequent symptoms: (but can vary from person to person) bloating with or without constipation, joint and muscle pains, muscle cramps, extreme tiredness, can be worse after eating, headaches, diarrhea, stomach cramps, weight gain or weight loss, leaky gut syndrome, IBS. thrush a feeling of being full all the time, or constantly hungry, low immunity.

Celiac Disease

Gluten Intolerant
Is a digestive and autoimmune disorder. An autoimmune disorder is one in which the immune system directs antibodies to attack the body. The antibody of celiac disease is directed against gluten, a protein found in grains.

Symptoms of celiac disease

Servere digestive problems (abdominal bloating, pain, gas, diarrhea, pale stools, and weight loss).
A severe skin rash called dermatitis herpitiformis.
Anemia (low blood count).
Musculoskeletal problems (muscle cramps, joint and bone pain).
Growth problems and failure to thrive (in children).
Seizures.
Tingling sensation in the legs (caused by nerve damage and low calcium).
Aphthous ulcers (sores in the mouth).
Missed menstrual periods.
Thyroid disease.
Type 1 diabetes.
Lupus.
Rheumatoid arthritis.
Liver disease.
Sjogren's syndrome (a disorder that causes insufficient moisture production by the glands).

Celiac disease can also leave the patient vulnerable to other health problems, including: Osteoporosis, a disease that weakens bones and leads to fractures. This occurs because the person has trouble absorbing enough calcium and vitamin D.
Miscarriage or infertility. Birth defects, such as neural tube defects (improper formation of the spine) caused by poor absorption of such nutrients as folic acid. Growth problems in children because they don't absorb enough nutrients.

 

Dairy or Lactose Intolerant

Cow's milk is a common cause of food allergy in babies and toddlers Although some children outgrow cow's milk allergy by the age of 5-10 years, but a lot more may not resolve the issue

Reactions can occur within minutes or up to several days after having cow's milk (dairy) products.
Rapid onset reactions usually occur within 15 minutes and sometimes up to 2 hours after exposure to cow's milk or other dairy
products:
cheese; cakes; biscuits; chocolate; sauce mixes; pasta dishes; milkshakes; sweets; Cream: (single, double, soured, whipping,) Crème fraiche; Fromage frais and Ice cream.
Symptoms can include: wheezing; abdominal discomfort; sickness; diarrhoea hay fever symptoms; eczema; hives itching skin; headache sinusitis and throat problems If you do have an intolerance to milk and dairy you can find your body over produces mucus resulting in a loose chesty cough. infants and young children can also become floppy or tired.
Cow’s milk is ‘hidden’ in many foods as well as drinks, be mindful of sauce mixes, pasta dishes, milkshakes, sweets, if there are any foods you eat a lot of, then check the packaging. Cream (single, double, soured, whipping,) Crème Ice cream

Lactose intolerance: is not the same as milk intolerance and can and does cause confusion Lactose intolerance is caused by the lack of the enzyme lactase, which helps to digest the milk sugar called lactose. Symptoms can look very much like a milk intolerance.
If you think you or a family member may have a dairy intolerance. Then a food intolerance test is the quickest way to find out. Elmination diets are also an option but keep a food diary and be patience as this option does need time.

Reviews

Julian Thompson
I cannot recommend the food intolerance tests that World of Homeopathy offer enough!

The service was so easy to use and the team were so helpful and really went beyond my expectations.
I not only found out about food intolerances but the test also includes vitamin and mineral deficiencies which are so important to be aware of.
The advice I received was also excellent. After reading my report my family and friends are now having food intolerance tests done, including all of the young children, which is great to see!
Many thanks again
