What is a Food Intolerance?

A food intolerance is a food which may be the underlying cause of bloating, constipation, cramping, and other gut health, and problems. Or it may also be the cause of skin problems like acne, psoriasis and eczema. A food intolerance is not the same as an allergy which can only be diagnosed by a physician and which can lead to life threatening anaphylaxis. Trial elimination of food intolerances is recommended. A food sensitivity test may help identify imbalances which can be the underlying cause of food intolerances.


An FDA Registered food test may identify imbalances to certain foods. One of the best approaches to dealing with a food intolerance is to remove any suspected foods from the diet for three months. This is called trial elimination. The results of the BioScan FDA Registered food sensitivity test may be used to trial eliminate foods suspected of being food intolerances. Only a doctor can diagnose a condition, however imbalanced foods may be indicated by a food sensitivity testing, and may evince the presence of an underlying food intolerance. Often improvements are seen by removing such imbalanced foods for three months. This is called trial elimination and it is the recommended protocol for deal with suspected food intolerances. If symptoms persist beyond this time, contact a GP.


Electrodes are placed on the fingers, and a sample of the food is emitted at the body in frequency form through the BioScan, an FDA Registered testing technology. This is painless and non invasive. Results are instant, and are explained by the clinicians and substitute options may be recommended.


No. The BioScan FDA Registered test helps to identify imbalanced foods. It does not diagnose any condition or identify allergies. For those who have had an allergy test already and ruled them out, it is highly useful to consider having the FDA Registered BioScan Food Test. Please seek the advice of a medical allergist if your symptoms relate to swelling of the throat, lips or other signs of anaphylaxis which is not signs of intolerances but medical allergy. Always contact your doctor before undertaking dietary changes.
