You can get many tests done by your GP, but some are not available on the
NHS or even from private doctors. It is always good to share the results
with your doctor. These tests can give a general overview of how foods or
nutrient deficiencies can be affecting you and what direction is best to go in
re dietary and lifestyle changes.
A FACTest (Food Allergen Cellular Test) – tests for IgG antibodies and can
determine if you have a true food sensitivity,
A CDSA 2.0 +P (Comprehensive Stool Analysis + parasitology) is extremely
thorough in detecting parasites, inflammation or bacterial imbalances in the gut.
Also this measures digestive enzyme output and looks at fibre
and protein presence in the stool.
Antibody profile tests – these tests are for Candida, Gluten sensitivity,
Anaemia profile – tests for iron, folic acid and B12 and ferritin
– all implicated if there is insufficient haemoglobin in the blood

in the body including – all vitamins, minerals, amino acids (proteins),
