What is a Food Intolerance:
Many get confused between a food intolerance a food allergy; but what really is the difference between the two?
An allergy to a particular food is when your body’s immune system reacts to a particular food or drink. The symptoms can range from mild to severe, depending on the severity.
Although some symptoms of food allergy and food intolerance may be the same, it is the digestive system that is affected by a food intolerance. This means, your body has difficulty digesting a particular food. Symptoms may not be suffered immediately, and may be delayed by up to 48 hours, and may last for hours or even days. This makes it quite tricky to pin-point what specific food you have an intolerance to.
If you have a food intolerance, this can be tested with a home finger prick test. Nutriprep is partnered with one of the UKs largest laboratories, providing you with your results within 3-5 working days to test for over 130 food groups. Contact me directly from my website to enquire more. Following your results, a bespoke meal plan will be generated for you to help alleviate your uncomfortable symptoms.

What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?
Irritable bowel syndrome is a common condition affecting the digestive system, affecting two in 10 people in the UK. A flare up varies between each individual and may change from one episode to the next. You can develop IBS at any age, but you usually have your first symptoms when you’re between 20 and 30.
Symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome include stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. These may come and go over time.
You can usually help ease irritable bowel syndrome by making changes to your diet and lifestyle, such as avoiding things that trigger your symptoms.

I did the food intolerance test with Marina and I can honestly say that my life has changed for the better since. Through the test results and Marinas help I was able to identify and eventually eliminate or considerably reduce the foods which agitated my skin and stomach. The best thing about the service is that you can actively plan your new unique diet with their team, which includes many delicious recipes.
Hands down a 5 Star experience. Insightful and helpful from consultation to results & advice stages. Great presentation of results, very clear and easy to understand. Would definitely recommend investing extra in the meal prep plan - It’s one thing to know what to avoid, yet it’s empowering to know the potential substitutes & minimise the impact of elimination. Big thank you to Marina @ Nutriprep!
My local pharmacy recommended Marina and her company Nutriprep when I was talking about improving my nutrition to help solve long-standing intestinal problems. Right from our first consultation I was impressed with Marina’s knowledge and straightforward advice. She knows her subject. Having discussed a way forward to deal with IBS, diverticula disease and reflux, she devised some delicious recipes for me to try. There was also a goal of losing a bit of weight. No strict diet just healthy changes. It has worked very well. The recipes are easy to follow and make and I have learnt a lot. Keeping a meal diary helps both of us to see what works. I lost a couple of pounds over two weeks. So I highly endorse Marina and Nutriprep. It has been a big positive step forward for me.
Marina at Nutriprep Nutrition has all the answers to start you off on a journey to a better you.
