Over 45% of the population react adversely to foods that they eat which, whilst not life threatening, can have a massive impact on someone’s quality of work and home life.
The way that food can affect our everyday life is often difficult to explain and it is common for people to try and eliminate foods from their diet to help themselves feel better. Often they don’t know which foods to eliminate and have to guess. Many people don’t know that identifying food intolerances† can be an important element of optimising health and wellbeing.
Lorisian, has over 30 years’ experience, specialising in laboratory tests that measure food triggers (food-specific IgG antibodies). Our results offer a fast track or starting point for an elimination diet. The tests are aimed at those that may have food intolerances†, and those who want to optimise their diets by avoiding any foods that they are reacting to. Our aim is to promote wellbeing within the pressures of a modern lifestyle. There are 2 testing options available with reactions to 100 or 150 different food ingredients tested. Check out the different levels here:

You can either pop in and have the test performed at the clinic, or we can send it out in the post for you to do at home. It's easy to do and involves a small prick on your finger to produce a drop of blood which is then absorbed with a test stick.
Results will be received by email, usually within two weeks, followed by a hard copy in the post with supportive literature.
If you want to discuss your results in more detail, a further appointment can be arranged.
The test is not advised for anyone in the following categories:
Suffering from blood borne diseases such as Hepatitis or HIV
Under the age of 2
Pregnant or breast feeding
Taking steroids or immunosuppressants
