Do you think the foods you are eating are making you ill?
Would you like to find out what foods are contributing to your symptoms and making you feel ill?
It is well known that what you eat has a huge influence on your health and wellbeing, however, your diet can also have a negative effect on your health, particularly if you are one of the estimated 45% of people who suffer from food intolerance.
Food intolerance is a condition with a range of symptoms including gut symptoms, bloating, IBS, headaches, migraines, low mood, joint pain, fatigue, weight gain and skin problems. These symptoms must always be checked out by a Medical Professional.
The company that I use for food intolerance testing is Lorisian Laboratories. This is done via a finger prick to access a drop of blood. There are 3 comprehensive tests one can choose depending on the one’s need – 75 foods, 100 foods, and 150 foods.
Lorisian 75 £149
Lorisian 100 £199
Lorisian 150plus £299

Your Lorisian test results will provide you with information about your food and drink intolerances. Remember that, for some, eliminating food and drink intolerances on their own may be enough to help them reach their Ideal Weight. However, there are many other dietary changes that can influence your weight and the Ideal Weight Programme is designed to help you identify other foods and drinks, apart from your food intolerances, that will help you define your new diet.

By choosing to take a Lorisian Intolerance Test you will make an important first step towards managing your personal food intolerances.
What is Homocysteine?
Homocysteine is a naturally occurring amino-acid involved in essential chemical pathways in the body. Although it is a natural substance, too much of it could be harmful. Increasingly, medical experts are warning that raised levels in the blood could be more concerning than high cholesterol.
What are the effects of high Homocysteine?
High level of homocysteine in your blood have been implicated in the following:
Heart Disease and Stroke
Alzheimer’s and dementia
Research has shown that lowering homocysteine levels by just 3umol/L can reduce the risk of:
Heart attack by 16%
Strokes by 24%
DVT (deep vein thrombosis) by 25%
Who may be at risk?
If you tick any of these boxes, you may be at risk of increased homocysteine levels:
If you smoke
If you drink alcohol
If you drink excessive caffeine
If you do little to no exercise
If you have a poor diet and/or are overweight
If you have diabetes
If you have rheumatoid arthritis
Levels can also increase with age, oestrogen deficiency and with some medications, as well as for those following strict vegan or vegetarian diets.
Whatever the state of your health a homocysteine test can help to assess your risk allowing you to take action to reduce that risk and provide peace of mind for the future.
