Understanding Food Intolerances and what to do

Can you honestly remember everything that you have eaten or drunk in a 72 hour window?  The possible manifestations of a food reaction are enormous and often non-specific.
Food reactions may cause many discomforts.
We have been looking after food intolerance sufferers for about 17 years and have gained a wealth of knowledge to help you.

Gluten Free – to be or not to be ?

Ask yourself this: “How can it be that I can enjoy a freshly baked baguette in France or a delicious crusty based pizza in Italy and have no reaction, yet one slice of bread purchased at my local supermarket leaves me curled up in pain?” Read on for more on Gluten and how to find a traditional Artisan Baker near to you.

FODMAPS – What are they ?

FODMAPs are sugars that aren’t absorbed properly in the gut, which can trigger symptoms in people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Do you feel bloated, suffer from stomach pain and cramping after eating foods or before going to the toilet ? Do you regularly have constipation, diarrhoea or both ?

Pets and Allergies – is your pet causing an Allergic Reaction ?

Pets and Allergies – It is probably not your puppy, bunny or kitten that you might be allergic too but it’s dander. What’s dander? Well basically its all the dead skin flakes that come off your beloved pet and these get everywhere! This dander is often covered in your pet’s saliva and urine too ( just to make things even more yucky ! ).

Asthma and Allergy – Is there a connection ?

Dr James Li from the non-profit Mayo clinic in the US thinks “Yes”.

He explains in a recent article that the same substances that trigger hayfever such as pollen, dust mites or pet dander may also cause asthma signs and symptoms.

Too Much Chocolate or Hot Cross Buns at Easter ?
