For the Food Sensitivity test, a pin prick of blood from you is used to analyse 59 different foods. The test takes 1 hour and is conducted within your consultation. During that time, the practitioner will explain what food sensitivities and intestinal permeability are and how you can help improve your digestion in the future.
After the test, they will go through the results with you and explain the alternatives you can have and how you can avoid any potential nutrient deficiencies.
They may also recommend certain supplements that will help restore your gut integrity and improve your digestion. More details for Food Sensitivity Testing with Philippa Parish
