How food intolerance affects your health.

Food is intimately linked to your body's immune system. The immune system is the body's defence against foreign invaders, such as poisons and harmful bacteria. When you are sensitive to a food your body doesn't completely digest it, allowing incompletely digested food to enter the bloodstream where it is treated as an 'invader'. Therefore, if you are regularly eating foods to which you are intolerant, you are continually placing your immune system under stress.

Some conditions influenced by food intolerence:-

  • Bloating
  • Sickness
  • Stomach Cramps
  • Constipation
  • Wheezing
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Sinusitis
  • Tension & Nausea
  • Hives
  • Rashes
  • Itching
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Loss of Energy
  • Panic Attacks
  • Bad Headaches
  • General feelings of being unwell
  • Diarrhoea
  • General aches & pains

FoodSCAN Food Intolerance Indicator

Yorktest has developed a simple, unique and revolutionary YES/NO test. Designed for people suffering from chronic conditions or less than satisfactory health, the test analyses a tiny sample of blood to see if food intolerance exists and therefore whether it is likely or not that your symptoms could be food related.

Find out if food you eat is contributing to your symptoms

  • Just a simple pin-prick of blood is all that is required.
  • 15 working day turnaround for results
  • Accurate and reproducible laboratory testing
  • Clear YES/NO result
  • Saves time and money

If your Indicator result is positive, you can 'upgrade' to one of their in-depth tests. All you have to do is contact Yorktest and they will arrange for your original blood sample to be fully analysed. There is no need to order another test - they only need one sample!

The Indicator test will eliminate any doubts you may have that food is contributing to your symptoms and will give you a clear Yes or No result. The in-depth tests will then identify exactly which foods you should avoid and which you can continue to enjoy!
