You have arrived here no doubt because like me, 5 years ago, I too had concerns and worries that I may be poisoning myself through no fault of my own !!
A few short tests with my local colonic lady and I found out my sensitive genetic gene pull – Blood type O meant certain dairy products were my silent killers ……
Firstly lets clear up some important definitions of intolerance and allergies:
A food intolerance definition:
Occurs when digesting foods are a problem/concern.
A food allergy definition:
A much quicker response and potentially dangerous condition when your immune system reacts to a particular food. Food intolerances can be the host of many health issues and diagnoses from your doctor.
Why is the test important ?
By finding out what foods you are intolerant to, you can make important decisions on your diet by removing the foods from your diet and then slowly re-introducing them to build up tolerance to those foods. This could improve your health and wellbeing.
Symptoms of food intolerance?
There are usually more than one symptom…Sufferers often complain of:
- Brain fog
- Feeling bloated
- Skin rashes
- Irritable bowel syndrome
Some have the unfortunate to experience irritable bowel syndrome, migraine and skin or respiratory conditions. Symptoms don’t always develop straight after eating and can take up to 3 days causing is difficult to determine which food it is.
Is it possible to be affected by foods that are not detected?
Some foods may cause a classical allergic reaction involving the production of a type of antibody called IgE. These will not be detected by any IgG food test. There are also many foods that can cause a reaction in the body without involving the immune system but produce symptoms similar to IgG reactions. For example, amines in chocolate, cheese and red wine may cause migraines; some food additives such as tartrazine can cause hives, rashes and asthma; monosodium glutamate in Chinese dishes produces sweating and dizziness; and ‘Nightshade’ alkaloids in potatoes, tomatoes and peppers can affect the joints. These are very difficult to test, but you should avoid them if you suspect they are affecting you.

What our clients have said about us:
Fiona Duncan – Nottingham
April 2014 was a great month for me because this was the time that I met Jolene and she changed my life- yes no exaggeration, she CHANGED my life. As a sufferer of IBS, anaemia and a low immune system, I have very much struggled over the years to find a diet that suits my restricted needs and very often have suffered the not so nice symptoms of chronic fatigue and bloatedness amongst other things, I sometimes found it difficult to get through a whole working day without needing to nap or take time out of work and GP’s didn’t know what to do with me- blood tests came back clear and I was at the end of my tether… Then Jolene attended my event back in April 2014 and I asked for an appointment in Nottingham for a consultation; Her speciality- The Blood Type Diet. I was given a quick pin prick in my finger to determine my blood type, which as it happened I’m an O- and then the fun began!
It is now 6 months later and I can say I have completely changed my diet for the better, I noticed a difference for the better in just one week! Amazing results and highly recommended.
Thank you Jolene !!!

I approached Clarity because I wanted a detox after Christmas . Jolene was very warm in her approach, as well as answering my endless questions, nothing was to much trouble for her. Her knowledge and passion for Clarity is transparent from your first communication.
I ‘m so glad that I found Clarity. I would not hesitate to buy from Clarity again, communication was very fast and Jolene is an expert in her industry, she know’s her stuff! I loved the fact that there was no hard sales pitch, the products speak for themselves. Have confidence and use clarity, Jolene is amazing! Thanks so much Jolene! xxxx
