A food intolerance is an adverse chemical reaction that can occur when eating certain foods. An increasingly common affliction for Australians, food intolerances can cause symptoms that range from mild to severe. Symptoms may include bloating, constipation, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, flatulence, reflux and indigestion, and more.
If you suspect you have an intolerance to certain foods, the team at Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic can provide accurate food allergy sensitivity tests. Boasting highly trained staff and fully equipped facilities, we’re capable of conducting food allergy sensitivity testing for patients of all ages.
The Testing Process
At Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, we use a reliable method known as the IgG Food Sensitivity Profile to assess food intolerances. The test involves taking a small blood sample which is then tested in a laboratory against various foods you may be intolerant to. The results should confirm whether or not you suffer from a food intolerance, allowing us to make personalised recommendations.
If an intolerance is confirmed, we can help you rebuild and restrengthen your gastrointestinal system using holistic methods, such as prescribing nutrients and herbs that improve gut health, decrease inflammation and balance the microbiome. Over time, you may even be able to reintroduce the foods that you were previously intolerant to.
