Clinical Testing for Food Toxin Sensitivity

Types of Testing to Detect Food Sensitivity

While Clinical tests for food sensitivity can give minute detail, they frequently return 'inconclusive' results. Therefore you may need to have several types of test before the doctor can suggest possible causes of your symptoms. But there is one method which gives accurate results first time, every time - the Journal Method.

Types of Clinical Tests Used By Your Doctor

It is our mission to help you understand FOOD TOXINS and learn how to reduce them in your diet. We recommend using a Journal - as in foodintol® LoTox Living.

Of course there are clinical tests with your doctor. However - no single test can conclusively identify all your food intolerances. To get a postive diagnosis you will need a series of different tests - from which your doctor will build up a fuller picture of your situation. Your medical doctor (GP) may use:

    • Several kinds of blood tests
    • Hydrogen breath testing*
    • Allergy testing (e.g. by skin pinprick method)
    • Gastroscopy (tube guided into stomach while under anaesthetic)
    • Endoscopy - checking for signs of intestinal damage linked to food intolerance
    • Intestinal biopsy (small tissue sample taken under anaesthetic)
    • Stool (faecal) analysis - DNA testing
    • Skin sample analysis (e.g. with flaking skin infections)
    • Genital swab (e.g. for fungal conditions)

*No longer practised by many doctors who cite unreliability.

A naturopath or alternative medicine practitioner may use:

    • Iridology (diagnosis by looking into the iris of the eyes)
    • Examination of eyes, skin, tongue and pulses
    • Vega testing (small electrical currents sent through person and food)
    • Reflexology - pressing on soles of feet
    • Other methods
