Food Intolerance Screening

What is a food allergy?

A Food Allergy is a rapid and potentially serious response to a food by your immune system. It can trigger classic allergy symptoms such as a rash, wheezing and itching. The most common food allergies among adults are to fish, shellfish and nuts – including peanuts, walnuts, hazelnuts and brazil nuts. Children often have allergies to milk and eggs as well as to peanuts, other nuts and fish.

What is a food intolerance?

Food intolerances are more common than food allergies. The symptoms of food intolerance tend to come on more slowly, often many hours after eating the problem food. Typical symptoms include:

  • Bloating and stomach cramps
  • Constipation or Diahorrea
  • Tiredness and fatigue
  • Unexplainable skin rashes
  • Candida and yeast problems
  • Headches and Migraines
  • Sinus pain

It's possible to be intolerant to several different foods, which can make it difficult to identify which foods are causing the problem. Food intolerances can also be difficult to tell apart from other digestive disorders that can produce similar symptoms, such as inflammatory bowel disease, gastrointestinal obstructions or Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Allergy Testing

What is an Allergy? Allergies are those things that your body reacts to immediatley; most people are aware of their allergies. Some common allergy culprits are:

  • Trees and pollens
  • Dust mites
  • Nuts
  • Cosmetics
  • Metals
  • Medications
  • Environmental pollutants
  • Food preservatives & colourings
  • Fungals and moulds

Common Allergy Symptoms

You'd think common allergy symptoms are often those which you would associate with a cold, such as sneezing or coughing. However, allergies can affect virtually any part of your body, and as such there are a number of different symptoms that can happen under normal allergic circumstances. Here are just some of the most common allergy symptoms:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Diarrhoea
  • Sneezing fits
  • Runny/blocked nose
  • Sinus Pain
  • Itchiness

    Most symptoms are minor and only result in small discomforts, however at the same time many can be very severe. For example, allergies can often cause anaphylaxis in which the body has a reaction so strong that it goes into a state of shock and begins to “shut down”. In this instance an allergy treatment needs to be administered immediately or a reaction like this could be fatal.

    Many common causes could actually trigger a reaction like this, such as insect bites and stings, medication and nuts. If you ever see anyone who appears to be having an anaphylactic shock then alert the emergency services as quickly as possible.

  • Rashes
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sore Throat
  • Asthma Attacks
  • Swelling

Description of Tests

Young Children's Tests

All tests are suitable for children from 8 years upwards.

‘E’ Numbers and Colourants

Food additives are substances added to food to preserve flavour or improve its taste and appearance. With the advent of processed foods in the second half of the 20th Century many more additives have been introduced, of both natural and artificial origin.

Many clients are unaware that Food additives/'E' numbers are affecting them, but one of the most shocking and regularly taken in drinks is the artificial additives – Aspartame, Acuesflame, canderel, sweetex.

Vitamin Deficiencies

If you are low in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and essential fatty acids you will not be performing at your best and you are putting your health at risk.

Mineral Deficiencies

Deficiencies and imbalances of vitamins, minerals, etc. can cause low energy, headaches, digestive complaints, skin and hair problems, joint pains and depression, just to name a few.

Essential Fatty Acid Deficiencies

Essential Fatty Acids have desirable effects on many disorders. They improve the skin and hair, aid in the prevention of arthritis, lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. They are beneficial for Candida, Cardiovascular disease, Eczema and Psoriasis. They are needed for the development of a healthy brain, and a deficiency can cause memory loss and impaired recall.

Amino Acid Deficiencies

There are 21 Amino Acids that make up just one protein cell. Protien cells are your Hair, Skin, Nails, Muscles, Bones, Joints, Organs... in fact your whole body is made up of these Amino Acids, they are part of every living cell. Deficiencies in these Amino Acids can cause:
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Brain Fog
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Metabolism
  • Heart Disorders
  • JointProblems
  • Poor Hair Growth
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Poor Skin Quality
  • Arthritis
  • Respiratory Disorders
  • Ulcers
  • Allergies
  • Blood Sugar Irregularities
  • Depression
  • Menstrual Irregularities
  • Diabetes
  • Pain
  • Low Mood

Digestive Enzymes>

We look at any digestive enzyme deficiencies that may be contributing to an impaired digestive system. We also test for Candida, a form of yeast fungus in the body that can be the cause of many unexplained illnesses. Lack of Digestive Enzymes can cause Acid Reflux, Bloating, Belching, Food Allergies, viral infections, inflammation and injuries.

Nutritional Supplements

The Asyra Pro chooses the very best Health Supplements especially tailored to your condition, you can even bring your own Supplements you use (up to maximum of 5).

Fungals, Mould and Yeast Infections

Funguses are simple parasitic life forms which cause illness by direct poisoning, toxic by-products, allergic reactions and colonisation of body tissues eg: the skin.

We test for Asperigllus, which can cause coughing and wheezing attacks and bronchial problems. These are common Moulds which are found in soil, dust and decaying leaves, usually Moulds can be implicated in causing Rhinitis, stuffy nose and sinus problems.

We also test for Penicillium toxins, which are common and found in soil, decaying vegetation, food, house dust, wallpaper, moist chipboard and water damaged fabrics.

Yeast infections are common and the most recognised is Candida in its many forms. Candida Albicans is most commonly associated with vaginal symptoms, and can affect the mouth and skin and Colon, but there are other forms: Candida Glabrata, Krusei, Pnemoniae Psittaci and Trachomatis.

Pollens, Dust and Grasses

One of our most popular sceenings
  • We scan for Mixed Grasses, shrub pollens: buttercup, heather, nettle, plantain, buttercup and many others
  • We scan for Mixed Tree Pollens, eg. Alder, Ash, Beech, Hazel, Elm, Oak, Poplar, Willow and many more
  • We scan for House Dust Mite
  • We scan for Mixed Pollens: Daffodil, Hawthorn, Oat grass, Ragweed, and many perennial flowers.

Heavy Metal Profile

Metals cause some of the most hidden health problems on the planet. Do you actually know what is in your water? Yes, Aluminium. It can cause havoc with the skin, and can be responsible for Eczema, Dry Skin and Contact Dermatitis. Aluminium is a hidden danger and is also found in aluminium cooking foil, cooking pans, deodorants, bleached flour, table salt and baking flour. Aluminium can affect the brain and slows learning, is this one of the causes of Alzheimer’s?

Aluminium is also found in processed cheese, is masked as anti-caking agents in food.

"Large numbers of people in our aluminium-using society are the victims of slow aluminium poisoning" wrote Stephen E Levick, MD of the Yale University School of Medicine, and said that there has been an increasing amount of literature implicating aluminium as the cause of dementia or mental deterioration.

How many Mercury (Amalgam) fillings do you have?? Are they affecting your health?

We scan for all Metals, Iron, Boron, Cadmium, Copper, Silver, Tin, Lead etc.

Chemicals and Inhalants

Chemicals are all around us in our environment, and in our everyday lives.

We get up in the morning and brush our teeth nearly all toothpaste contains Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, usually used in the automotive industry as a degreaser. Ladies who apply lipstick, who unknowingly wipe lead across their lips, and apply it at least four times a day, seven days a week!!!

Chemicals like Formaldehyde, which are common and found in printing ink, textile fabrics,carpets,chipboard,adhesives,as a preservative in cosmetics and toiletries, lozenges, cleaning products and garden fertilisers. Formaldehyde is the most common skin irritant and can cause breathlessness.

We also scan for, bleach, creosote, crude oil, (found in most plastics) textiles (lycra, mixed nylons, latex, lanolin, etc.) perfumes, petrol fumes, stain removers, paint, aerosol propellant, tobacco, diesel fumes, washing powders (also please bring your own make).

Please note that all tests have not been scientifically proven and should not replace Medical Advice.
