Testing for food intolerance
Have you ever wondered which foods might be secretly causing your body to react negatively? Some people intuitively know which foods not to ingest by picking up on the subtle signals of their bodies. But the majority of people's diets are dictated by cultural influences rather than what is best for them, with many unknowingly consuming unusual herbs, foods and supplements for supposed health reasons unaware of their intolerance.
Food intolerance occurs when your body struggles to properly digest and convert ingested food into the necessary nutrients that fuel your system. This maldigestion causes inflammation, which can lead to many negative food intolerance related symptoms including fatigue, migraine & headaches, eczema, bloating, gas, congestion, weight gain, brain fog, joint aches, acid reflux, food cravings, diarrhea, skin rash and more.
If you relate to any of the above symptoms you may benefit from visiting a nutritionist who can help you identify any underlying food intolerances that may be secretly plaguing your body's system and come up with a diet plan that addresses any imbalances or deficiencies you may have.
The Pinnertest is a quick and easy way to identify food intolerance, the kit which is delivered to your door comes with a relatively painless finger-pricker that extracts a couple of drops of blood. Once the blood is collected, the kit is sent back to Pinnertest's California HQ in the provided packaging.
As soon as your blood sample is received and analysed a food intolerance chart is emailed to you indicating which foods to avoid according to three degrees of intolerance +1 LOW REACTION +2 MODERATE REACTION and +3 HIGH REACTION.
My results were very interesting and unexpected to say the least with 3rd degree intolerance in Lemon and Soybean, and 2nd degree intolerance in Almond, Vanilla and Cow's milk.
I already had my suspicions about intolerance to cow's milk, so had replaced it with soy milk in my diet - unwittingly increasing my symptoms of maldigestion! Likewise, I thought I was being very healthy in taking lemonwater every morning - how wrong I was. I have now replaced all lemon in my diet with lime, which the Pinnertest indicated I have no intolerance to. I also regularly snacked on almonds, wondering why I felt nauseous afterwards. Mystery solved.
So if like me you are filled with curiosity about which specific foods might adversely affecting you, or perhaps in an attempt to improve your health you have added some unusual foods, herbs or spices to your diets that don't seem to be making a difference, the Pinnertest is a very fast and convenient way of finding out exactly which foods are the ones double-crossing your health.
