The Gut And Skin Clinic


What are the benefits of identifying food intolerances?

Food intolerances may be the underlying cause of gut health problems like constipation, bloating, cramping, IBS and weight gain. They may also be causative factors in skin problems like acne, psoriasis, and rosacea.

It is generally accepted that the best way to overcome a food intolerance is by trial elimination of that item which means removing the food from the diet for no more than three months. This can be more difficult than it sounds because it is hard to know which items are causing the problem.  Many people chose to undergo food sensitivity testing with the BioScan Food Test as a useful guide. By knowing the foods that are imbalanced, it is possible to create a trial elimination plan. It is believed that  the imbalanced foods are also the likely food intolerants.
