    I've been the same for years for the sake of £75 ( for me and the missus ) I feel it was worth it even this early on for the confirmations, if it reveals true to form that the other foods listed are an issue as well I'm more than happy to stop eating everything listed. Rice is probably the killer for me, the rest I doubt id miss as I've never been a bread eater anyway.

    With the Milk I switched to A2 milk a couple of years ago and instantly saw an improvement there. If i go back to normal milk now i feel terrible within hours.

    Yes strong coffee and milk seems to definitely be bothersome for me too, already been switching to non dairy milks and noticed an improvement but still not all symptoms are gone. Sod it think I'll order one of these tests and see what it gives me.

    I'd struggle with not having rice, I love the stuff!

    If you havent tried A2 milk its worth a shot, It tastes exactly the same, can get it from tesco's. I went through all the crappy horrible tasting milk alternatives before i found A2.

    That's really interesting, I will have to have a think about doing it myself, my diet is already annoyingly restrictive and I think I've got a good handle on what my body doesn't like

    I was watching Joe Rogan talk to some kind of diet specialist the other day, they said an interesting thing about the bacteria in your gut and that it might not be the food itself you're eating sometimes that's giving you problems, so much as that type of bacteria that food is promoting in your gut that your body doesn't like

    You do hear about life changing results from people with autoimmune diseases from going on all vegan diets, or all carnivore diets

    I always thought I had a good handle on what my body didnt like, I mentioned at the start of the thread I used to take supplements for yeast management and pro-biotics to help as well. Years of trying different things etc.

    So far I've got rid of all my old habits for supplements. I'm now only doing this :

    1. Vit D spray ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00JNG8KBS/?tag=acorn06-21 )
    2. B-12 Spray ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B074N32T2Q/?tag=acorn06-21 )
    3. Multi-Vit Spray ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00JNG89AU/?tag=acorn06-21 )
    4. Pro-biotics, but now only 2 or 3 times a week if i feel the need. ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B071Y1DHLY/?tag=acorn06-21 )
    5. I also use these pads on my feet 3 times a week at night ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01K49YC5A/?tag=acorn06-21 ) Originally i brought them to see if they helped with tinnitus, but they actually help me sleep.
    6. Swithced to A2 Milk ( https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/287259076 )
    7. Plus obviously now watching my diet according to what im supposedly intolerant to.

    All a bit namby pamby but after 20 years of feeling crappy im game for trying anything now lol, the above formula so far I feel better than I have since being a teenager.

    So far out of everything, I think the Vid D was a big thing for me as it's made a noticeable difference but overall I'm glad I done both thriva and intolerance labs for the hints they've given so i can keep testing what works for me. I don't think anyone will be the same, it's all about putting in the effort to see what works for you

    Slightly off topic, Joe Rogan was interviewed by Aubrey Marcus, they own Onnit the supplement company. Aubrey is BIG on health, I highly recommend his book 'Own The Day' can get it on Audible & Amazon. He mentioned that allergy/intolerance tests that test the skin can be a poor test as your skin won't have the same bacteria/etc as your gut. Lots of great info on all round health, mental, physical, etc ..

    @Adam H

    How do the pads work ? The theory... not how do they attach to your foot obviously :)

    @dee , they just stick on the sole of your feet, I put them on about 15 mins before I goto sleep because if you walk around with them they normally unstick. So last thing you do before shutting your eyes and in the morning take them off, give your feet a wipe as it produces black gunk.

    If you get sweaty feet in the night and it comes unstuck you can just put on some ankle socks at night and it keeps it stuck.

    Apparently they draw toxins out of your blood, some people they work, some they don't. For me I sleep 10x better and strangely I don't get that gammy dry feeling in my mouth in the morning when using them. Wake up feeling like I've actually had a decent sleep. I do it 2 - 3 times a week, if I don't do it for a week I can tell the difference. My other half thinks they are nonsense, but my parents and grandparents see the same benifit as I do.

    Whether you feel fine or not, bodyweight is a reliable indicator of many health risks. This link to a BBC page offers some broad info, and a neat BMI (body mass index) meter.

    I did read about testing hair for food intolerances awhile back and it appears to be complete pseudo science.

    I'm considering doing a follow up test next month to see if my changes have made any difference. I feel they have, but will be interesting to see the results for sure.

    This week I started taking omega 3 in the form of algae oil

    Been vegetarian for 10+ years so had no oily fish source

    Reading about it there are 3 types of omega 3, ALA found in plants and then EPA and DHA in fish and algae

    You need DHA and EPA; luckily your body can use ALA and turn it into either but only at a small percent, depending where you read, anywhere from 1-15%

    The only thing I could find in my diet that was decent in ALA was navy beans and broccoli which I eat maybe twice a week so I would guess I'm probably quite deficient

    Symptoms of deficiency are pretty vague common stuff
    • poor concentration
    • depression/anxiety
    • trouble sleeping
    • fatigue
    • joint pain/inflammation
    • low immunity
    • dry eyes
    I would say of those my eyes are often feel a little dry, my concentration isn't the best, my energy levels are a million times better since I started taking vitamin D but I hear about how some people live their lives and I certainly don't have their energy levels lol

    Can't find anywhere that says a length of time you might notice a difference, I will give them 3 months taking them everyday and see if I notice any positive change
