Headaches? Tiredness? Joint Pain? Indigestion?
...Maybe you have had all the normal tests and they've shown nothing.
You are puzzled and so is your doctor...
The logical step now may be to consider the possibility of testing for food allergy or intolerance.
Why a test?.... because these reactions cannot otherwise be diagnosed.
An efficient way of detecting allergy or intolerance is with the Vegatest. Up to 150 substances ranging from cereal and dairy products to pets, pollens and chemicals can be tested for. Even drinks such as coffee, tea and fruit juice may provoke hitherto unsuspected reactions.
No injections, no patch tests are needed!
The test unit (above) measures the body's reactions to potential allergens. The test is totally painless and involves a probe which lightly touches a fingertip or toe.
What is the difference between food allergy and food intolerance?
Allergic reactions are caused by the proteins in foods, which may resist cooking, stomach acids and digestive enzymes. They may then enter the bloodstream and cause reactions throughout the body. These proteins may stimulate the production of antibodies specific for each particular protein. Every time the protein is eaten it triggers this antibody to release histamine and other substances to produce localised inflammatory reactions.
