Allergies are on the increase, and food allergies in particular are becoming more common. Allergies are caused by an overreaction of the body’s immune system to certain innocuous molecules from the outside world. These allergens may be from foods, pollens, house dust, animal hair or moulds.

A food sensitivity response takes place in the gut, and it occurs when you are unable to properly breakdown the food. This could be due to enzyme deficiencies, sensitivity to food additives or reactions to naturally occurring chemicals in foods. Often people can eat small amounts of the food without causing problems.
A food sensitivity occurs when someone has difficulty digesting a particular food such as gluten or dairy - this can lead to symptoms such as intestinal gas, abdominal pain or diarrhoea.
The ALCAT® diagnostic system is more comprehensive than traditional IgG antibody food sensitivity tests, as it uses whole blood which contains all of the immune factors (not just IgG antibodies), cells and proteins that might be involved in an adverse reaction to a food.
Many nutrients are absolutely essential for good health. It's possible to get most of them from a balanced, real food-based diet, however the typical modern diet lacks several very important nutrients. Find out your nutritional status with this simple nutrition blood test.

The female body produces many different hormones, but certain types have a bigger role to play in the body's health and well-being. When your hormones are in proper balance they help the body thrive, but small problems with hormones can cause serious and life-altering symptoms. Specifically imbalances of sex hormones, thyroid hormones and adrenal hormones, as well as insulin resistance are common problems that can contribute to a host of chronic health issues.
