Allergy or intolerance?


There are important differences between allergy and intolerance.

Symptoms of an allergic response usually happen quickly after eating or exposure to a food or substance, and may be life threatening.



You are advised to contact your GP if you believe you have an allergy to any food or substance.

The symptoms of a food intolerance usually occur several hours after eating the food. You need to eat a larger amount of food to trigger an intolerance than an allergy, and intolerance is not life threatening. www.nhs.uk/conditions/food-allergy/

Food intolerance

You may or may not have some idea of the food or food groups that cause you a problem. However, it is really useful to keep a food diary for at least a week before your appointment

  • When you eat & drink
  • How you feel after you eat or drink


    Some of your symptoms may be;

  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea
  • IBS
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Skin problems
  • Irritability

    Testing for intolerance

    Intolerance testing can help identify which foods are causing problems, as well as testing for sensitivity to environmental allergens such as pollens and chemicals.

    This simple test can help identify which substances are causing the intolerance and problems such as

    abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, nausea, IBS testing for sensitivity to substances such as wheat, dairy, pollens and chemicals.

    Once problematic substances have been identified, we will discuss whether they need to be avoided, or whether combinations of foods may need to be changed or avoided.

    I will usually give a homeopathic remedy to help with the symptoms you are experiencing. It is useful that you keep a food diary for a month and note any changes, until the next appointment, when we will review.
