How do Lorisian food intolerance tests work?

First of all a few drops of blood are taken using our simple finger prick blood collection wick system. Because the finger prick system is so easy to use, the sample can be taken anywhere – at your premises, at the clients’ home, at the gym etc.

The sample is then posted back to our laboratory (in a pre-paid envelope), tested and analysed for IgG antibody reactions to more than 150 food and drink ingredients.

Clear colour coded test results and support pack are delivered back to you that explain your clients’ food and drink intolerances. This allows you to discuss in detail recommended dietary and nutritional changes – a fast track to an elimination diet that optimises health and wellbeing

What are food intolerances?

There is a lot of confusion about the terms food intolerance and food allergy, and the differences between them. Many people think they have a food allergy when their symptoms can sometimes indicate food intolerance instead. Up to 45% of the population suffer from food intolerance* which, whilst not life threatening, can have a negative impact on many aspects of daily life.

When foods and drinks are digested the proteins within them are broken down into smaller fragments for easy absorption into the body. Larger fragments can pass through without breaking down, and sometimes the body reacts to them as invaders, attacking them using antibodies called Immunoglobulin (IgG). This can cause inflammation and a wide range of symptoms including headaches, digestive problems, IBS, bloating, itchy skin, joint pain, weight gain and low mood to name a few.
