Are you tired of being tired? Do you suffer from low mood and not enough stamina to get things done? Food can be your greatest medicine or the slowest poison if you do not eat the right foods for your body. At The Liosbaun Clinic, Yvonne O’Shaughnessy, leading food intolerance specialist and nutritionist, offers food intolerance testing using blood analysis of 150 foods, aiming to avoid symptoms of chronic fatigue, bloating, IBS, weight gain, migraine, skin conditions, constipation, irritability, sugar cravings, etc.
“Food intolerances are far more common than food allergies, and at some point during our lives it is likely that we will all experience an unwanted reaction to something we have eaten, it when this reaction or symptoms become more common that it starts to affect our bodies,” Mrs O’Shaughnessy said. “Food intolerances may eventually cause damage to the lining of the small intestine, preventing it from absorbing the goodness from foods, especially in the case of coeliac disease. The damage caused is usually a reaction to eating gluten, or other high intolerances for that individual, and symptoms vary so greatly from person to person that often the condition can go undiagnosed for a period of time. Gastrointestinal symptoms can include abdominal pain, bloating, indigestion, constipation or diarrhoea, nausea, and unexplained weight loss.”
One other common symptom of food intolerance is fatigue. For those with chronic fatigue, certain food combinations can contribute to worse symptoms and sleepiness. Identifying and eliminating specific foods from the diet is an important step forward in improving energy levels. Currently the best accepted method for confirming food intolerances is by blood analysis (pin prick test ) which is offered at The Liosbaun Clinic, Tuam Road, Galway, phone 087 0573098. Cost is 120 per person tested including nutrition consultation.
