Food Sensitivity Testing
The British Allergy Foundation estimates that up to 45% of the UK population suffers from illness related to food sensitivities (at some time of their lives) and the picture is similar in other Western countries. Intolerance or sensitivity can affect many of us in our normal everyday lives and this sensitivity can be a cause of many long-standing medical conditions.
This may be caused by a variety of factors such as:
- Increased consumption of sugar and refined foods
- Chemical additives in our foods
- Increased environmental pollution
- Increased workloads and subsequent increase in stress levels
- Lowering of immune function
- Over consumption of dairy products
Conditions that are often precipitated by food sensitivity may include Arthritis, fatigue, sinusitis, headaches and migraines, skin conditions, hyperactivity, Irritable Bowel syndrome, unexplained weight gain, fluid retention and many others. Visits to your GP may not have solved the problem.
By taking a Food Sensitivity Test, you may be able to pinpoint the potential food source or irritant that is causing your symptoms. Then with nutritional advice and some changes to your dietary habits, you may find your health improving significantly. The Medica Nutrition food test is quick and effective and includes over 120 foods, a vitamin /mineral test, a candida check, plus testing for pollens, moulds, house dust mites, and E number sensitivity.
The testing method* used is by an EAV (Electro-acupuncture) machine. The patient simply holds an electrode, whilst the tester probes acupuncture points on the fingers with a metal pen. Homeopathic test ampoules of food are introduced into the circuit, and the degree of sensitivity is interpreted by assessing the degree of distortion recorded on the machine.
The testing method provides:
- Instant results
- Painless procedure
- Personalized nutritional brochure
- Advice and back-up
- Complete confidentiality assured
* The test does not constitute a medical diagnosis. For all medical and dietary problems, please consult your GP.
