On average up to £350 is wasted on remedies and pills trying to relieve the symptoms brought on by food intolerance
Leeds, West Yorkshire (PRWeb UK) October 28, 2010
It is estimated that up to 12 million people are living with food intolerance and spending on average up to £350 on wasted remedies and pills trying to relieve the symptoms before they discover the cause.
By using a convenient home test kit and service such as the YorkTest, sufferers can put a stop to their food intolerance once and for all. YorkTest Laboratories is Europe's leading food allergy testing company and offers the only food intolerance testing service endorsed by Allergy UK.
Food intolerance is a delayed response to certain foods and can be a debilitating condition that affects long term health and quality of life. Some of the most common problems people can experience due to a food intolerance are IBS symptoms , bloating, tiredness, migraines, and digestive complaints.
Sufferers often react to more than one food, which means it can be a timely process identifying which foods are causing the problems. Getting rid of food intolerance is about identifying the foods that are making you ill and subsequently eliminating them from your diet. Currently the NHS advocates an arduous process in treating food intolerance involving an elimination diet and food diary which often proves a lengthy process.
YorkTest Laboratories offer a simpler and faster solution to identifying food intolerance with a two step test to help reveal whether someone is food intolerant and identify specific types of food intolerance. The FirstStep YorkTest provides a positive or negative result as to whether a person is food sensitive or not. If results prove positive the sufferer can then upgrade to the YorkTest to identify exactly what the problem foods are so they can begin eliminating them from their diet.
The YorkTest includes a finger prick blood collection kit with detailed instructions on how to take the test so it’s easy to use and straightforward. The results which are based on the presence and amounts of food-specific IgG antibodies are analysed by scientists at YorkTest Laboratories who can accurately identify which foods are causing the food intolerance symptoms.
The results will give a breakdown of which of the 113 individual foods from cow’s milk to yeast, tea to tomatoes, wheat to walnuts, egg yolk to mustard seeds, gluten, tuna, beef, lamb and lentils are causing the food intolerance and give advice on which foods to avoid, those that are borderline and foods that are fine to continue consuming.
The process also includes two telephone consultations with a registered nutritionist from the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy who will offer specific individual advice and help on how to incorporate the recommended diet changes. A 12 week food diary with diet tips will also be provided to help sufferers keep track of the changes they are making to their diet.
The YorkTest food intolerance testing service is available as a two stage process. The First Step is currently available at the special price of £9.99 (RRP: £20.00). Following the First Step, if your result is positive you can then upgrade to the comprehensive laboratory analysis and aftercare for £245.
