Did you know that thousands of people have food intolerances and don’t even know it? So, what exactly is a food intolerance and most importantly, how can you identify which foods you are intolerant to?

We Are What We Eat!

There is no doubt that your food and drink choices have a massive impact on your body. Eating junk food, snacking on sugar, drinking alcohol and not providing your body with the right kind of nutrition leads one way only – hello weight gain, bloating, lethargy and headaches. But did you know that eating healthy foods that our body is intolerant to is just as bad?

Dietary intolerance testing at Homefield Grange, also known as a dietary sensitivity test is a painless, non-invasive test. Using the Di Etx machine to measure your body’s electrical resistance. It is a simple rod placed into your hand, each food type is then tested in turn. The testing lasts for about 50 mins with results delivered to you during your session.

Meet Our Practitioners

We have two practitioners at Homefield Grange who are qualified to carry out the Dietary Intolerance Testing. They have been with the team for many years and have helped hundreds of clients.

“Clients often come to us with unexplained symptoms and suspicions about food that they are intolerant to. They feel better when they identify foods causing an issue. Simply cutting the food out of their diet for 2 months and gradually reintroducing the food that they are intolerant to does a world of good”


“I … had a lovely consultation with Judy about food intolerance. She helped me to understand the effects of the wrong foods on my health. Good advice that will help me to continue looking after myself outside of my visit to the retreat.”
