Food Allergy Testing in Brisbane

Have you noticed that some foods just don't agree with you anymore?

There are a few simple ways to find out which foods you may be allergic or intolerant to. It’s amazing how your health can improve after removing the burden of food allergies.

We can help you demystify which foods work for you and which foods work against you.

Many people get very confused trying to work out which foods are causing their health problems. This is because a bad reaction to food may not appear for up to 48 hours after you have eaten it. This is why it's so important to have a qualified health professional help you identify your food allergies. We offer food allergy testing at our clinic in Grange, Brisbane. Our Naturopaths and Nutritionists can help you to understand which foods may be causing food allergies or food intolerances. We also help you with food intolerance testing, or keeping food diaries where we teach you how to identify the common causes of food intolerance.

Food Elimination Diet

Your naturopath will ask you about your diet and identify foods which may be causing your symptoms and instruct you on a diet eliminating these foods, then perform a “food challenge” to test which foods are causing your problems.

This is widely considered by dietitians and medical experts as the most comprehensive way to identify food intolerances and food allergies.
