The Advantages of the Food Reaction Test
There are countless different food allergies and food intolerances and almost as many tests to get to the bottom of them. Do you have unanswered complaints and do not know where to start? Then the cerascreen® Food Reaction Test offers you a helpful initial orientation.
Food intolerances or food intolerances can not only be responsible for gastrointestinal complaints. They often manifest themselves through symptoms such as tiredness, skin irritation and burning sensation in the oral cavity. Without a food intolerance test, it is often difficult to identify the causes of such symptoms in everyday life.
