It could be that you are one of the 45%* of the population suffering from food intolerance. Food intolerance is different from food allergy in that symptoms are delayed, and usually more than one type of food is causing the problem. Symptoms of food intolerance are not life threatening, but they can still have a major impact. Often people with food intolerance take medicines to try and ease their symptoms rather than considering that food could be the cause.

Typically each food intolerance sufferer will have their own pattern of symptoms and a unique “finger-print” of foods that they are reacting to. Working out which foods are causing particular symptoms is not easy when, unlike food allergy, food intolerance symptoms appear up to two or three days after eating the particular foods. You may be eating your problem food or foods every day without realising it.

There is a simple solution which is a test for food intolerance which can be obtained from Cobh Pharmacy. The Lorisian Food Intolerance Test is a simple finger-prick blood test that analyses for IgG antibody reactions to foods in blood. You can collect the finger prick of blood with the help of your Pharmacist and the sample is sent away for analysis at a fully accredited laboratory using hospital standard test methods. The test results tell you exactly which foods you are reacting to so that you can eliminate them from your diet and start feeling better.

Based on years of research, 91% of Lorisian customers would recommend the test on offer, and scientific data collected from over 5000 users of the test show that over 3 out of 4 people feel better after acting on the results, the majority within three weeks.
