What we eat can impact both the body and skin. If you are struggling to manage acne, eczema, rosacea, irritable bowel syndrome etc a food intolerance test may be beneficial.
What is a Food Intolerance?
Up to 45% of the population suffer with symptoms of food intolerance. Whilst not life threatening, it can have a big impact on your quality of life. When you eat or drink a particular food your body can produce a variety of inflammatory responses as it identifies the food as a threat. Unlike an allergic reaction, a food intolerance can be delayed up to 72 hours and vary in severity affecting digestion, skin, joints and energy levels.
