At Arden Grove Clinic we take great pride in working with our clients from start to finish to provide the best possible outcome. We do not just provide test results but a full advice hotline where patients can call with any questions or concerns regarding their test results.
Joe and Carolyn Kinchin offer Food Intolerance testing at their private clinic in Knowle or home visits if preferred.
We will point out the foods showing intolerance plus their severity. We will explain how these intolerances effect you in relation to your history. We will go through the foods to remove from your diet for a minimum of three months. We will discuss alternative foods to put in place to keep a balanced diet.
WHAT WE DO
The first consultation with our clients at the clinic or their home is to assess your concerns and symptoms and take a background history.
We will then take a small blood sample from your finger which will be tested against a number of different food proteins like apple, lamb, chicken, yeast, wheat, peas, dairy, egg, etc covering most commonly eaten foods.
It will then take us 2 – 3 days to review your results including comparisons with many case histories in our library of previous results.
A comprehensive written report will be produced and a second appointment made to discuss the way forward.
THAT'S NOT ALL
Diet change can be a trial that’s why we provide a seven-day a week helpline for you to use so that we can work with you to achieve the best possible results over the three months or longer if required.
We have helped many clients over the years that have used the help line one or two years later for advice, which we are always happy to give.

The tests that we use can cover anything from 50–200 food proteins, and measure food specific IgG reactions in the blood,which is recognised as the most reliable wayto identify foods that may be causing a problem.
Due to the number and types of tests available dependent on your particular circumstances we cannot give exact prices.
Therefore please ring us on 01564 770802 so that we may discuss your situation and advise on the most suitable test for your needs and the price.
The procedure is to place your blood sample in a diluent that is put in a tray containing the different food proteins, after a period further solutions of antibody detector and developers are added to show any proteins were there has been a reaction.
