Symptoms of food intolerance can manifest in many different ways. Symptoms don’t necessarily have to be digestive in nature and often people can go years suffering from ill digestive health being told by medical professionals that there is nothing wrong or being given the diagnosis of ‘irritable bowel’ leaving most at a loss of where to go next.
The most common symptoms of food intolerance are:
- Irritable bowel
- Diahorrea or soft stools
- Abdominal cramping
- Reflux (this includes breast fed as well as formula fed infants)
Other not so obvious symptoms can include:
- Recurrent tonsillitis, especially in children
- Recurrent ear infections or glue ear
- Lowered immunity
For any suspected food intolerance a 96 Food IgG blood spot test is carried out at your initial appointment. This test can be performed on children and adults. For infants that are breastfed the testing will be carried out on the mother instead as IgG antibodies can travel through breast milk causing symptoms in newborns.
At the initial consult an elimination eating program is implemented and further foods may be eliminated once test results are received. A supplement regime of prebiotics and probiotics as well as digestive enzymes is also commenced along with the dietary changes to help heal and seal the digestive lining during the period of elimination.
Healing the gut is at the core of helping any sort of digestive or immune issue as foods can affect people in many different ways from causing nutritional deficiencies to aggravating chronic auto immune diseases such as Hashimotos and rheumatoid arthritis.

What our clients say about us
“Our journey as a Family started with Daniela just over a year ago. My daughter and I are both Coeliac and although we adhere to a strict gluten free diet we both were not feeling fabulous. I just knew there had to be something more to it than just accepting that how we felt was “normal”. As a mum I wanted to give my daughter the chance at optimum health and give my son every fighting chance to avoid the disease. Daniela has given me the knowledge and tools to get our bodies back on track and start the healing process. I now have knowledge that none of the doctors or specialists shared regarding our disease. I have gained knowledge in many underlying factors and genetic predispositions that play a large role in achieving optimum health for Coeliacs.
A year later and our health has improved tremendously. We are a lot more body aware, intolerances have been identified and we are more confident and in tune with what our bodies need and don’t need.
As a mum i feel empowered to handle the families health with natural alternatives, thanks to Daniela. Addressing the symptoms and not simply masking them has undoubtedly been the most powerful piece of advice.”
