Testing for sensitivities
Food intolerance should not be confused with food allergy. Food allergy is an adverse reaction to a particular food, for example fish and peanuts, and it affects the body’s immune system. The allergy can produce symptoms such as a skin rash or it can be sudden and life threatening (anaphylaxis).
Food intolerance is different, it is an adverse reaction that is not immune mediated; smaller amounts of the offending food are generally better tolerated. Symptoms, develop after eating a food that the digestive system cannot adequately process. The symptoms, although less severe than a food allergy, can still undermine well-being.
Food intolerances often involve the foods we most commonly eat and we tend to crave the foods that we are intolerant to.
Common symptoms of food intolerances and sensitivity are:
Fatigue Stomach cramps Bloating Nausea Heartburn Congested sinuses
Excessive Wind Belching Frequent sneezing Irritability Skin rashes or other skin problems
Constipation or diarrhea Headaches Poor sleep Pains in joints and muscles Difficulty losing weight
I use the Asyra pro Health Screening to assess reactions to substances suspected of causing health disturbances.
The Asyra screening is a totally non-invasive way to get information from the body about any areas of imbalance. Readings are taken by holding two brass handmasses, and tiny changes in the electrical resistance of your skin are monitored as different signals are output from the system.
It covers 220 of the most common foods and also measures your vitamin and mineral status. Your report will quickly highlight any problem foods and reveal any vitamin or mineral deficiencies.
The Asyra Pro system represents the latest developments in Bio-energetic screening technology and your report covers 220 common foods and 80 vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
A new study looks at the efficacy of the Asyra in treating intolerances
