Food sensitivities and food intolerances manifest in a wide variety of symptoms. If you experience any of the following, and have ruled out other causes, it might be worth exploring whether certain foods are causing you problems.
- Unexplained weight gain
- Irritable bowel type symptoms
- Sinus congestion
- Arthritic type aches and pains
- Headaches or migraines
- Fatigue or lethargy
- Inability to concentrate
- A sense of ‘just not feeling right’
Unlike food allergies, reactions to food sensitivities and food intolerances are rarely immediate. They can manifest up to 72 hours after eating the problem food and this can make it difficult to identify which foods are causing the problem.
Kinesiology muscle response testing takes the guesswork out of the process. As well as foods, it can help to identify if products such as toiletries or washing powder are having an impact. Muscle response testing is non invasive and painless, and is suitable for all age groups, including babies.
My test kit includes 150 samples of common foods, beverages and spices, as well as other common irritants such as house dust, fur, feathers and pollen. I encourage clients to bring their own foods and products for testing. Food sensitivity testing may be carried out face to face or remotely via video connection.
