Testing

 

 

Instead of treating symptoms of an illness, Nutritional Therapy attempts to find the underlying cause of the illness by using detailed medical history, assessment of signs and symptoms, as well as functional laboratory testing.

 

Food Intolerance Testing

 

 

Food intolerance is a condition with a range of symptoms including gut symptoms, bloating, headaches, migraines, low mood, fatigue, weight gain and skin problems. These symptoms must always be checked out by a Medical Professional. If you have seen a Medical Professional but have not been given a diagnosis for your symptoms you may be suffering from a food intolerance.

I am a Lorisian practitioner therefore I can arrange food intolerance testing and evaluation and tailored food plans and advice.

Lorisian, has 35 years’ experience, specialising in laboratory tests that measure food triggers (food-specific IgG antibodies). The tests are aimed at those that may have food intolerances, and those who want to optimise their diets or improve their digestive health by avoiding any foods that they are reacting to. Identifying food intolerances can be an important element of optimising health and wellbeing.

DNA Testing

 

 

I am a MyDNAHealth practitioner (genetic tests and reports). Therefore I can arrange DNA testing and evaluation and tailored food plans and advice.

My DNA Health does not diagnose any medical conditions but rather tests for epigenetic predispositions which or may not be expressing. The tests only show the genes which can be influenced by our choice of nutrition and lifestyle.  Additional information is gathered about each client by filling in relevant questionnaires which adds more details to the genes they are testing for by evaluating their current lifestyle. Examining this information alongside their genetic potentials provides a clearer picture of how their lifestyle is affecting their gene expression i.e.

 

We can’t change our genes but through the implementation of diet and lifestyle we can influence how our genes express.
