Did you know the NHS has recently confirmed that a huge number of patients they see have food related issues. The facts are undeniable, common foods and drinks could be making you ill and create symptoms like gas, bloating, IBS, irritability, weight gain, low mood and poor energy levels.
If you think that foods that you are eating are causing you health issues, it could be worth you undertaking our simple, painless test, which offers instant results on over 120 food substances, plus a vitamin and mineral check, alongside a basic nutritional counselling session.
Feeling good and enjoying life is much easier if you eat the right foods. If your gut is happy, so are you!
You’re a unique individual and so are the types of food that suit you. We can help you find out what’s right for you.

Your dietary intolerance test/consultation uses a simple machine called a Dietex. It is an electronic machine that measures the body’s resistance to certain foods and drinks in a painless and harmless way. If a substance that you are using in your every day diet is causing a problem that it will effect your body’s energy. This is what we are measuring for you during this test.
The test is suitable for everyone, (however, a fitted pacemaker is a contra indication). It is also possible to carry out the test even if you are taking medication.
An intolerance test is different from an allergy test. Allergic foods could trigger an immune system reaction, which is a life threatening condition. If you have an intolerance, for most people you’ll find that you’ll be able to eat a small amount of the offending food without trouble – sometimes you’ll become symptomatic and other times you won’t. This is one of the reasons why a food intolerance is so hard to distinguish on your own.
We have found from experience that 85% of people who eliminate the foods identified in this test gain very positive results for their skin, energy and vitality, by eliminating the identified foods.
This test is not 100% accurate and does not replace medical advice given to you by your doctor. We would be happy to discuss the test further with you. Please ring us on 01536 712219, 9am to 6pm daily.
Before the test you’ll complete a questionnaire detailing your health status and current daily lifestyle habits.
You’ll also discuss in detail the concerns you have and what you wish to achieve for yourself.
If any food or drink substances are identified as problematic for you during the session, you’ll be given specific advice on how to move forward and often we give you help with substituting different types of foods as a replacement.
Homefield’s nutritionists are fully qualified and have undertaken extensive training over years, at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.
You can rest assured that our experienced nutritionist is registered with BANT (British Association Nutritional Therapists) and work with integrity and empathy at all times.
They will help you understand the link between your diet and the presenting symptoms you may be experiencing.
We would never recommend an Intolerance Test as a replacement of your doctor’s advice, however we have found from experience that knowing the right foods to eat can play a powerful role in supporting and enhancing your health and wellbeing.
Our clients have often found that by eliminating the identified foods for 30 days, then re-introducing them slowing over a period of time can help with offending symptoms.
We have also found that if the problem lies with diary, wheat, gluten or sugar, these foods are best avoided for the long term to prevent symptoms from re-occurring.
Your needs as an individual are very unique and by having an Intolerance Test carried out, will often highlight where you need to make changes to your diet specifically. However, here is some general advice to follow regardless of your age, medication and health concern:
Variety. A golden rule for healthy living is to ensure you put variety in your diet. This will also help prevent an intolerant build up to certain foods. Rule of thumb, look at eating the same food only 3 times a week – on other days eat a different variety, (i.e. don’t just eat an apple a day, mix it up a bit with a kiwi one day, or a handful of strawberries).
Stay Hydrated. Your body cries out for fresh clean water every day. Flush your cells, cleanse your blood, improve your energy levels by drinking 2 litres daily.
Dark Green Leafy Veggies. Kale, spinach, salad greens, all vitally important to provide your body with nutrients that help you stay well.
Cut out the sugar! Each time you eat biscuits, cakes, sausage rolls, confectionery, etc you rob your body of essential minerals that help you move, sleep and think well. Think of this food as “dead food” – the only thing you gain from eating them is calories.
When You Eat. Breakfast and lunch need to be your most substantial meals of the day. Evening meals need to be eaten at a time that allows four hours gap before you climb into bed. By 6pm your digestive enzymes begin to diminish – it’s not the time to be eating a heavy meal. Aim for a soup, salad, some grilled veggies, light fish dishes, small veggie stir fry.
How You Eat. If you find your body is piling on the pounds around the middle, you’re probably eating in a stressed state. Proper digestion needs you to be in a ‘parasympathetic’ mode, (rest and digest). If you’re eating with one hand on your lap top, or talking on the phone, your cortisol levels will be up, which means you’ll store your lunch as fat instead of usable fuel. Slow Down, take your time for a 30 minutes breakfast and lunch. It’s essential for weight management.
Healthy Eating. What do you think healthy eating is? If you think it’s about giving up things, not having treats, you mustn’t and you shouldn’t, your belief around healthy eating needs to be challenged. So many of us make eating a battle, it needn’t be that way. We can show you how to enjoy nourishing your mind and body in a caring, mindful way. Give us a ring on 01536 712219, 10am to 4pm daily, to book your Nutritional Consultation today.
Come and have a one off consultation, or book a follow up to help keep you on track long term.

This photo taken ten days after my first HydraFacial treatment, I love the brightness it's given me, it's really made my skin glow. When results like this are so visible after the first treatment, a HydraFacial is now a part of my monthly beauty routine at Homefield.

I have just completed my third stay at Homefield Grange, the last one being 18 months ago. I can honestly say that I have never had such an enjoyable or beneficial week’s holiday. I feel fit, energised and so well rested and relaxed. Homefield was its usual cocoon of care and luxury. All the staff on hand can’t do enough and really care about us all as individuals. The group was supportive and so friendly; it’s just been like a week’s country house (healthy) party. Having recently lost a lot of weight I was in a good position to take advantage of everything on offer, and the programme has been honed to perfection over the years. The mix of food, exercise, education and pampering is spot on. Since I last came the big thing for me has been the introduction of Decleor products in the treatment rooms. I had a Decleor aromatherapy massage and facial, and both were to die for. For anyone thinking of coming-just do it! I will be back early next year.
"Homefield Grange provides the kind of detox that you dream of. By that I mean, it doesn't’ feel difficult! Their delicious juices and homemade soups, along with various therapies, long walks and good conversation make the days fly by." *
It was wonderful to be able to find somewhere to go in the UK that is such a high standard a real 5* health experience. The staff were lovely, everyone so friendly and helpful. I’ve been a detoxer for years, and yet I've learnt a lot of new things, especially kitchen time spent with Hans, learning a new way of raw food cooking which I’ll be using all the time… the food, honestly is just delicious and fresh. Live blood analysis was amazing……..I saw a huge shape change in a week (a lot of exercise went into it too) and have booked again already!*
