The only testing that is done on site is Food Detective testing. It is a quick, simple and effective way to discover if you have intolerances to a wide range of various food groups. Essentially, food intolerance is your body’s abnormal reaction to certain foods which can manifest itself in a number of ways. Some people will have one symptom such as a severe headache whilst others will be unfortunate to experience irritable bowel syndrome, migraine and skin or respiratory conditions.
This is a finger prick blood test performed by Mel to determine food intolerances. It tests the blood for food antibodies (IgG) and gives a result within 45 minutes. It is simple, safe and accurate. Mel will provide you with a detailed and individualised report with your results, elimination and reintroduction periods, food information and alternatives as well as a comprehensive protocol to best suit your needs.
