Food Intolerance is not does not exist as an entity in itself. It is however a major contributory cause for migraine, irritable bowel syndrome and eczema, and a factor in many other conditions.

Currently the gold standard treatment is by the taking of a proper history, exclusion of a food or foods identified as culprit(s), resolution of symptoms and then, and this is the most important part, return of symptoms with the re-introduction of culprit foods. To be widely available this requires a network of properly trained and competent practitioners to be carried out properly. At the moment this is not the case, certainly in the United Kingdom.


Tests are available to assess food sensitivities or nutritional status and may be used by practitioners on which to base their advice. They may be provided by laboratories at a distance that send detailed results to the patient who may then seek professional advice or work on the basis of the results alone, or directly by a practitioner.
