Our practitioners can now perform the Food Detective testing during your consultation.
What is the Food Detective?
The Food Detective™ is a blood test for food antibodies (IgG) that can be conveniently used in the clinic of our health professional.
You don’t have to send off a sample and wait weeks to receive results from a testing laboratory.
The testing tray that shows if the patient has IgG antibodies to specific foods has areas spotted with food protein extracts. A small blood sample is taken from a finger-prick and is then diluted and added to the tray.
In subsequent steps the use of detector and developer solutions identify the presence of food antibodies through the appearance of one or more blue spots on the tray.
Reference to the food layout plan will allows our practitioner to identify any foods to which you may have an intolerance.
Food Detective™ gives you your results in just 40 minutes.
For more information please discuss with our receptionist, they will be happy to book you an appointment with Deirdre, Manuela or Carolina to discuss possible food intolerance and your nutritional requirements. Phone us on (07) 5522 0505 to book!
