Allergy Testing, Tolerance and Nutrition
Why allergy testing? Correct eating patterns and good food enhance the body’s own natural healing processes, improves the immune system, reduce stress and increase energy on all levels. Allergies/Intolerances/Sensitivities can disturb this process.
ALLERGY (nowadays referred to as SENSITIVITY or INTOLERANCE) means the body does not recognise the substance and will deal with it inappropriately.
TOLERANCE means the body can recognise the substance but has a problem with the volume it can cope with at any given time. Both have very similar symptoms.
Combinations of foods or substances will also be tested if appropriate. For example all vegetables may test ok until three are combined. If tea, made from a tea bag, is upsetting a client it maybe a combination of water, tea, milk, sugar, paper, bleach and glue.
