Our Intolerance Programme
With the incidence of food intolerances ever on the rise, at Advanced Naturopathics we are pleased to present our specialised programmes at our Christchurch clinic.
Firstly it is important for you to understand what we are testing for. An allergy is a response that is characterised by the release of IgE antibodies by our immune system. In the case of allergies, these IgE antibodies are primed to react to harmless substances ie. shellfish, and generally happen very quickly after eating a food. True allergies such as these are what is tested with the traditional skin prick test. If you experience any facial swelling of the eyes, mouth or throat your testing needs to be conducted through your GP/local hospital.
What is of more concern to us at Advanced Naturopathics, are Intolerances. These types of reactions do not involve IgE antibodies and do not show up in traditional types of skin prick testing. However these types of reactions produce many of the same symptoms as an allergy (with the exception of anaphylaxis). They are also far more prevalent that true allergy.
Our testing service focuses on the identification of these intolerances.
Intolerance Testing Service - Results in 24 Hours
Using non-invasive Electro-Acupuncture (EAP) testing procedures, over 100 of the most common foods and substances known to cause an intolerance type of reaction are tested. Individual substances that are suspected of causing a reaction can be brought in and included in the testing process, making it highly specific for each client (i.e. personal care products and household chemicals). The service includes: food intolerance testing, environmental intolerance testing, and food additive intolerance testing.

We Also Offer A Desensitisation Service
Utilising Bicom bioresonance therapy, we offer an intolerance desensitisation programme aimed at reducing the inflammatory response within the body. In this process the mirror image of the substance’s energy pattern is sent into the body. Over time, this has a desensitisation effect, thus reducing the over-reactive immune response.
