I once had a patient who came to me with digestive and bowel issues. We managed to get him 80% better using herbal medicine and some nutritional changes but after three months we just couldn't seem to get him to the point where he was symptom free!
On this basis we agreed that a food intolerance test was an appropriate course of action. It turned out that one of his favourite afternoon snacks, Almonds, were his most intolerant food!
Of course when we removed these from his diet he immediately went from 80% better to 100%!
Functional testing is available for food intolerances as well as comprehensive digestive analysis, hormone panels and adrenal testing amongst others. The key to your health might be as simple as making one simple change like our friend in the story above.
