Reintroducing high reactivity foods
We recognise that many people wish to start re-introducing foods into their diet following the exclusion processes. This means that you do not eat foods on your ‘high reactivity list’ for 3 months. This must be done with care and it is important to start slowly. At a time convenient to your individual needs, introduce one food at a time and leave one week between that food and the next. If there are no symptoms after a few days then use that food on a four day or more rotation to maintain increased tolerance.
If at any time your symptoms start to return or you start to feel ill DO NOT continue with the re-introduction of that food.

Here is what our clients are saying…
I had been suffering from reflux/antacid problems & was frequently using Gaviscon to reduce the effects. I had also been prescribed statins & was slightly concerned about cholesterol level.
I’d never thought of blood test for intolerance so was a little sceptical. The cost seemed quite high as well. There are so many “fads” out there & I thought this may be just another one.
I thought I had a good diet already. The process was explained & the potential outcomes. The blood sample is easy & just a week or so wait for the results. The results were then explained & suggestions made on how to amend diet.
There have been many results! I’ve not used Gaviscon for a year now!
I feel better in myself. I am much more conscious of my diet & along with exercise have reduced my weight & maintained it. An additional & much more beneficial effect is that I haven’t used my inhalers for 12 months! Having suffered asthma for 40 years I hardly suffer any effects at all now. Cutting down dairy & gluten food products have improved my overall health.
And most of all this has saved me £200 in prescriptions & Gaviscon in 12 months so the cost of blood test has almost been recouped.
I took the food intolerance test as I had suffered with a few different symptoms – Sinusitis, IBS, headaches and joint pain. The sinusitis was investigated by the NHS but they found no cause.
I wasn’t given any help for my IBS either – just a diagnosis. After 3 months of taking the test (it found me to be intolerant of egg white and dairy) I have found that my abdominal pain has reduced to minimal and I don’t feel the need to rush to the toilet as much as I used too, which is good because I have taken up playing golf and this could of been a big problem for me. I do still have some symptoms of bloating and diarrhoea, but I know this is only when I have eaten something that has something in it that I shouldn’t have.
I do find it hard to avoid foods in certain situations like eating out in restaurants or friends’ houses, but I find they do accommodate as much as they can. I no longer have headaches and I have not had IBS symptoms for a while. As for joint pains they are in my legs mostly but I feel that is down to my weight and my nutrition in the past, I have lost 8lbs and hope to lose more, I feel this is a slow process but it’s going in the right direction.
I do have sinusitis, but I have found that it flares up when I have had dairy and egg whites and not realised, I have eaten it, or drank it. I am really surprised where dairy is used like in Smokey bacon crisps soups etc. Reading labels is essential and is something I do every time I go shopping now.
Having the intolerance test has been a big eye opener for me and it has made me realise how much I took for granted in what is being put into our everyday food. Being aware has helped me to eat healthier and have a bigger understanding of what I have been doing to my body.
I would recommend taking an Intolerance because it is a great way of knowing what your body needs as an individual, so having the knowledge can help with having a better healthy life.
