Food Intolerance Testing

Over the last 10 years in practice I have used food intolerance testing as a clinical tool to aid digestive issues, skin problems, migraines, low energy, reduce autoimmune response and anything relating to inflammation in the body.
Most illness, pain, bloating, redness, disease is an inflammatory response.
With food intolerance or sensitivity, you remove the reactive foods short, medium or long term to remove the trigger.
I have seen many clients achieve great results and quality of life from doing the test.

Before Taking A Food Intolerance Test

This test works by measuring your response to food so it is important to eat a broad range of foods beforehand. Click on the 60, 93 or 200 Food List buttons below for a list of foods tested. Do not eat any food which has already caused a severe reaction without first getting a medical opinion.

Fitzwilliam FoodTEST support the HPRA recommendation.

Vitamin d test.Vitamin D deficiency can be a serious problem and does not have very obvious symptoms. It increases susceptibility to other more serious conditions. Maintaining Vitamin D levels protects the body from a wide range of diseases including viruses, cardiovascular disease and bone disease including osteoporosis. Depression and breast, prostate and colon cancer have also been linked to an increased risk of Vitamin D deficiency.

The long Irish winter and the lack of sunlight is perhaps the biggest cause of Vitamin D deficiency amongst people living in Ireland. That’s why we should be more concerned than most countries.





Thyroid antibody testing.The new thyroid autoantibody test is able to detect these antibodies sent out to attack the thyroid gland. Early detection of raised thyroid antibody levels can often precede the onset of symptoms by a year or more. The presence of these thyroid antibodies unequivocally confirms the diagnosis of thyroid disease.

Thyroid disease is typically a malfunction of the thyroid gland, where the immune system destroys or stimulates thyroid tissue. It is almost always caused by the autoimmune condition Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, in which the body’s immune system reacts against the thyroid gland gradually making it inactive and causing hypothyroidism, or by Graves Disease, where the production of thyroid hormone is stimulated causing hyperthyroidism.





Candida albicans testing.Candida Albicans is a yeast-like fungus that is normally present on the skin and on mucous membranes such as the vagina, mouth, or rectum. An overgrowth of Candida in these areas is commonly referred to as thrush. It is also a normal inhabitant of the human gut, however, when a person has a microbial imbalance, Candida Albicans can change its form to become a pathogenic (injurious) invasive fungus.

The test is designed to detect elevated levels of IgM and IgG antibodies to Candida Albicans. Elevated IgM results indicate an early stage infection. Elevated IgG results indicate an actively ongoing infection or the occurrence of a past infection





Coeliac testing.Coeliac Disease (CD) is a permanent disease of the small intestine, caused by a reaction to the gluten found in wheat, rye and barley. The intestinal lining is subjected to severe attack as a result of the gluten. The intestinal lining becomes leaky and loses its ability to absorb nutrients from food. It’s a good idea to look into coeliac testing if you suffer from the below.

You should really suspect CD if despite all the best treatment, your condition fails to improve. This is because the proper diagnosis has not been made. In truth, many thousands of people are but treating the associated symptoms.
