Food Intolerance Testing

Your better health starts here!

Do you suffer from digestive problems, bloating, skin problems, low energy, blocked sinuses, catarrh, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, mood swings, migraines, fluid retention, weight problems or joint pain ...? The list could go on.

Have you been offered medication as the only option?

Would you like to know if the food you eat is making you ill?

Many people who take a Food Intolerance Test are delighted to discover that when they identify and avoid foods or drinks they are intolerant to, their symptoms are either greatly reduced or clear up altogether. 

Having a Food Intolerance Test can be life-changing and most clients come through the recommendation of someone who has already experienced the benefits of a Food Intolerance Test - which I guess speaks for itself! You might like to read about the results others have achieved before you book

A Food Intolerance Test and consultation costs £85. You will receive the results during your appointment along with guidance on how to work with the results to get the best outcome for your health.

A message from Caroline Tyler
"Covid-19 has brought many changes into our lives. Changes in personal circumstances mean that I will not be returning to the clinic and appointments for Food Intolerance Tests are now in the capable hands of Nutritionist Irene McCabe.

Irene and I have been friends for some time and we have very similar backgrounds, training and experience. She is absolutely lovely, very warm and genuine with so much knowledge and expertise. I am confident that Irene is the best person to offer the same high level of care and attention that my clients have always been used to—I am sure you will enjoy meeting her."

Here are just a few of Irene's glowing testimonials:

"Irene almost 2 stone down and feeling better than I have in years and have stopped battling with my diet. So many things make sense since removing the foods you have advised from my diet. Weight has just fallen away. Thank You for all you support. So appreciated."

"Cannot recommend Irene McCabe highly enough. So incredibly knowledgeable, down to earth, warm, funny and the voice of reason. It is amazing how a few wee changes can make a massive difference to your feeling of well being."

"I saw this wonderful lady last week for Nutritional Advice and Food Allergy Testing and it was a totally enlightening experience. Not only did I find out some really interesting things, about what I should and shouldn’t eat but Irene’s knowledge and her unique holistic approach, which was tailored to suit me (because of course we are all individual and unique) was so precise and on the button. She is very thorough and caring and I would wholeheartedly recommend her. Make an appointment! You won’t regret it and the good news is I can still drink wine!"

Please note: Irene McCabe is a fully qualified and insured independent practitioner.

Booking is via my online calendar. Click here to make an appointment. Any problems - please let me know.
The Food Intolerance Test is carried out with a Bio Resonance testing machine. This is a sophisticated electronic device which measures your response to a wide range of foods and drinks. It is a non-invasive procedure which means there are no needles involved.

To receive the test you simply hold a metal rod in one hand as the end of your finger is probed with a metal stylus, which looks a bit like a ball point pen. 
Yes. There are some things I need to ask you to do ... or not do!

Eat and drink normally on the day of your appointment.

Don't wear any perfume, cologne, aftershave or body spray. A normal amount of deodorant is ok. I am sensitive to fragrance so need to limit my exposure.

Remove your watch and ALL jewellery, including earrings. If you have some piercings or rings that never come off that's fine. But anything that can be removed should be removed.

Don't be chewing gum, eating or drinking anything other than water.

Turn your phone fully off or on to flight-mode as the signal can affect the test results.

Remove phones, keys and coins from your pockets.

Remove all metal hair grips. If you are wearing a belt the buckle shouldn't be in direct contact with your skin.

It's amazing how long it can take to remove jewellery and turn off a phone so please make sure all this is done BEFORE coming in to the consulting room so you get the most out of your time with me.

Thank you

The appointment lasts for an hour. We do our best to run to time but please allow for extra time if paying for parking - just in case! 
You'll receive the results of the Food Intolerance Test immediately together with recommendations for any dietary or lifestyle changes and vitamin and mineral supplementation -  if appropriate.
You will be asked about your health, diet and lifestyle. We are very experienced at asking the right questions to get the information we need in order to help you. However, if you want to keep a Food and Drinks Diary for the week (or at least a few days) prior to the test that's fine. Not a problem if you don't.

If you do decide to keep a diary please include EVERY food and drink you consume.

You will be asked if you have ever had any operations, taken antibiotics or had any serious illnesses. We'll go through every system of the body and ask if you have, or have had, a tendency towards any particular symptoms. You'll be asked about any medication or contraception you may be on, or if you are taking supplements.

We like to make sure there is plenty of time during the consultation to give you the best advice and recommendations so concise, accurate answers are always appreciated.
Many health issues are caused or worsened by the lack of micronutrients in our diets so If I believe you will benefit from specific vitamins, mineral, essential fats or probiotics I shall certainly recommend them to you.

Not all supplements are created equal so I only recommend brands I have absolute faith in. In other words, products I use myself.

We only test children aged 5 and over. 
This form of testing is not recommended for anyone who has a pacemaker or  uncontrolled epilepsy.

We don't test during pregnancy.

Very rarely, (about once a year) we are unable to test someone who has exceptionally dry skin on their fingers. Elderly people have less padding on their finger tips and may have dry skin but dry skin may also be due to a skin condition or chronic under-hydration so can be an issue with younger people too.

We don't test children under the age of 5. 
We usually recommend eliminating the test results for 6 to 8 weeks to allow the body body to become clear of them. If you do this suddenly you may get withdrawal symptoms such as headaches or cravings. Some people are fine with that but you may prefer to wean yourself of them gradually over a couple of weeks before beginning the full elimination period.

For some people a reduction in symptoms can happen almost immediately. However, if you are in any way constipated or are experiencing a skin issue that needs time to heal, or have inflammation, it can take time for your body to be clear of the offending irritants in which case an 8 week period of elimination is best.

Once you have completed the elimination period you would begin to re-introduce the foods and drinks one at a time, leaving a gap of at least 3 days between each reintroduction. Paying close attention to any symptoms or reactions immediately after eating and over the next 2 to 3 days. This is the best way to get a clear picture of how those foods were affecting you.
The following government guidelines will be implemented for the re-opening of the clinic on 31st August 2020. 

- If you, or anyone you have been in close contact with, has ANY COVID-19 symptoms, please get in touch to arrange a future appointment. Please DO NOT come to your appointment.

- Hand sanitiser will be provided and all patients are asked to use this on entering reception

- Please wear a mask unless you have a health condition which makes you exempt from doing so

- You have already provided your name and contact details, submitted when making your appointment, should these be required for any government test and trace facility.

- Only 1 patient will be allowed in the clinic room at any one time unless you are a parent accompanying a child

- Only bring yourself to the appointment, unless health conditions dictate that you MUST be accompanied

- During Testing when I need to be with one meter of you. I will be wearing gloves and a mask.

- Please bring as little baggage with you as is realistic. bags, etc

- If you wish to bring your own bottle of water this will be absolutely fine. Please just remember to take it away with you.

- Each client will have their own chair to sit on. This chair will be sanitised and cleaned before and after each patient

- Toilets are available for urgent use. Toilet are sterilised daily but please try to use the bathroom before you come to your consultation.

The following comments are from Caroline Tyler's clients. They have been listed here as a testimonial to the large number of benefits people experience from having a Food Intolerance Test carried out.   
"Caroline many many thanks from both my daughter and I for turning our health, sleeping patterns and weight around (for the better!) My daughter-in-law's mother went to you a couple of years ago. Having tried everything, including hospital testing - she's like a new person too!"
"I lost a stone and a half without doing anything other than cutting out the things that had shown up. Who would have thought that after all those years of battling my weight it would be as simple as that?"
"I cut out tomatoes and oranges as the test suggested and noticed the dryness and redness on my face and chest disappearing within a week. A few weeks later I cut out cows milk out of my diet as per your suggestion and it helped my psoriasis on my scalp so much my boyfriend couldn't believe the difference. I now find I can actually eat any of the foods above and I am not affected, as long as I eat in moderation. My colleagues can't believe how good my skin is looking and my boss has booked for a test next month with you!"
"Now I know what foods to avoid to have the most energy.
I hadn't realised that I felt so tired because of what I was eating."
"Further to my consultation with you in January I wanted to thank you for your help and advice. My symptoms have improved amazingly and I've never felt better. At our discussion, I told you changes to my diet normally only worked for a week or 2 max, hence I've left it so long to write to you. However, the advice you've given me is still working and I am hopeful this will continue in the longer term. Thanks again for all your help."
"I came to see you a few months back regarding my IBS, I wanted to thank you, since sticking to all the foods I can eat and changing my diet that you advised I have been great!!"
"I wanted to thank you for my dairy intolerance diagnosis back in March; my eczema has completely cleared up since cutting out dairy! I developed my eczema (which covered my face at one point) as an adult 3 years ago and GPs and dermatologists were useless in offering any help. Upon undertaking my own research I discovered yourself and since my diagnosis my skin has returned to normal and I no longer feel depressed at having to cover my arms and legs up all the time. I will also hopefully never have to see my face red and swollen with angry eczema patches and for that I thank you! You also helped me get rid of the small red cracks I had developed around 5 years ago at the corner of my mouth with a B12 supplement (again something doctors were unable to diagnose following many blood samples). I am so grateful for your help and I wanted you to know how you have made me happy again as I no longer hide indoors or behind long sleeved tops (which was a nightmare in the summer)."
"Further to my consultation with you I wanted to thank you for your help and advice. My constipation has improved amazingly and I've never felt better. At our discussion, I told you changes to my diet normally only worked for a week or 2 max, hence I've left it so long to write to you. However, the advice you've given me is still working and I am hopeful this will continue in the longer term. Thanks again for all your help."
"My itchiness on the skin has reduced so much with avoiding the things you mentioned."
"Going to the toilet on a regular basis now, I have had no bloating and generally feeling a lot better. I also lost 8 pounds so all good news."
"I came to see you for an Intolerance test and I just wanted to say thank you. After following the advice you gave me and eliminating the foods and drinks that came up in the test my IBS has been cured! I’m also drinking the 2L of water a day. I’ve never been so regular in my whole life and the bloat is gone! It’s quite incredible what a difference it has made to me."
"I've lost a stone and eight pounds since I came to see you just by avoiding the foods that showed up and I don't have any pain any more. I feel so much better ... have so much more energy. I did test it out one day by having a lasagne and I was in pain all night so I now know what I need to avoid."
"My daughter has been to you too, as has her husband. They are doing so well. She was on long term medication for heartburn which she no longer needs. The doctor had said she would be taking it indefinitely, so she's absolutely delighted."
"My son came to see you last year and he is like new person. I can't tell you the difference it made to him. He has stuck to the advice you gave him and he looks great. He has lost lots of weight and has lots more energy. Even his body shape has changed! He also feels different emotionally and has been able to come off his medication."
"Since being to see you I have lost 2.5 stones and feel great!"
"It's been 2 months since I came to see you and I can't begin to tell you how much better I feel. I haven't had a really bad headache since my appointment and I have had so much more energy and, another upside is, I've also lost quite a bit of weight. I would say I'm mainly over my chocoholic status and haven't had any for longer than I care to remember!
"I am officially entering my 6th week of cutting out the foods that I reacted to. I just wanted to say what a difference it has made,  I came for weight loss reasons and I have lost a stone without really trying! I also feel that my moods have settled and I generally feel much better in myself. I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to go through everything with me."
"Thanks so much for our session six weeks ago. Then, I was suffering from a six-week long cold, low energy and mood. I also have chronic headaches. Our consultation gave me the push I needed to cut sugar right down to fruit only, and cut my dairy consumption by two thirds. I also gave up tomatoes at your suggestion. Result? Energy levels better than they have been for years and headaches considerably diminished. Will continue with the rest of your detox suggestions in the New Year. Happy to recommend you to anyone from now on who I think might benefit."
"Dear Caroline, it is now over six months since I consulted you at the end of October.

Having conducted appropriate tests your main recommendations were to cut dairy and sugar as much as possible, as well as tomatoes, and to do the same with tannin and caffeine.

So I immediately cut dairy and sugar by 75% approx. and have stuck to that. I also cut out tomatoes. Then in the New Year I cut my tea and coffee to one cup of each per day, sweetened with Manuka honey.

Results? Immediate : the cold symptoms and sneezing stopped within 36 hours. I also was weepy and emotional for a couple of days. I noticed after a few days that my energy levels seemed better.

So - I am very pleased indeed with the results following from our consultation and would happily recommend anyone to you. I found your professionalism, knowledge and kindness very inspiring and supportive of my own efforts to help myself. Thank you so much."
