Lorisian 150 plus is our complete food and drink intolerance programme which tests and analyses IgG antibody reactions to 150 food and drink ingredients
What are food intolerances?
When foods and drinks are digested the proteins within them are broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption into the body. Larger fragments can pass through without breaking down, and sometimes the body reacts to them as invaders, attacking them using antibodies called Immunoglobulin (IgG). This can cause inflammation and a wide range of symptoms including headaches, digestive problems, itchy skin,joint pain IBS, weight gain, bloating,and low mood to name a few.
How do food intolerance tests work?
1. First of all a few drops of blood are taken using our simple finger prick blood collection wick system. Because the finger prick system is so easy to use, the sample can be taken anywhere.
2.The sample is then posted back to our laboratory (in a pre-paid envelope), tested and analysed for IgG antibody reactions to more than 150 food and drink ingredients.
3. Clear colour coded test results and support pack are delivered back that explain food and drink intolerances. This allows to discuss in detail recommended dietary and nutritional changes – a fast track to an elimination diet that optimises health and wellbeing.
