Instore Services: Food Detective Allergy Testing

Available at our Glebe store.

Food Intolerance is not usually life threatening, but can make you feel extremely unwell. The symptoms of food intolerance can be delayed for many hours or even days and for this reason it is often difficult to identify the problem foods.

Food intolerance may produce a variety of symptoms including:

Anxiety, Arthritis, Asthma, Bed Wetting, Blaoting, Bronchitis, Coellac Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Constipation, Cystic Fibrosis, Diarrhoea ,Fibromyalgia, Gastritis, Headaches, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Insomnia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Itchy Skin Problems, Malabsorption, Migrains, Sleep Disturbances, Water Retention & Weight Control Problems.

Sufferers of food intolerance frequently complain of lethargy or 'fogginess' and a general feeling of unwellness. These symptoms often persist for many years. Sufferers regularly report visits to their doctor have not resolved their problems and in many cases their symptoms are dismissed as 'all in the mind'.

Food Detective is a blood test for food antibodies (IgG) that can be conveniently used in the clinic of a health professional. You don’t have to send off a sample and wait weeks to receive results from a testing laboratory.

The testing tray that shows if the patient has IgG antibodies to specific foods has areas spotted with food protein extracts. A small blood sample is taken from a finger-prick and is then diluted and added to the tray.

In subsequent steps the use of detector and developer solutions identify the presence of food antibodies through the appearance of one or more blue spots on the tray.

Food Detective gives you your results in just 40 minutes.
