Discover your unique trigger foods from a simple finger prick blood test. The Blue Horizon IgG Food Intolerance Test analyses your blood to show reactions against 134 foods and drinks by accurately analysing your food specific IgG antibody reactions.
- Adverse reactions to foods can cause problems like
- Fatigue Skin Problems
- Headaches & Migraines.
- These problems can occur 2 hours, or 2 days after eating your trigger foods, making it very difficult to self-identify your intolerances. There are typically two types of people that would take a food intolerance test:
- Those who have problems that may be caused by diet (IBS/Bloating, Skin problems etc) the test is used here as a fast track to an elimination diet. Rather than trying to follow a restrictive diet and relying on months of trial and error - the test can accurately show reactive foods, and the level of reaction.
- Those who are looking to personalise their diet, ensuring it is not just optimal on paper, but optimal for them as an individual. This is more relevant to athletic and health and fitness conscious clients. Your results will show which foods and drinks you are reacting to, and the level of reaction.
- The test covers 134 foods and drinks, including sections looking at:
- Grains & Staples
- Dairy & Eggs
- Herbs, Spices & Oils and all major food groups.
Once you receive your test results, you can book a 30 minute telephone consultation with one of our Nutritional Therapists. This consultation is used to discuss your results and help remove and replace your problems foods – all whilst ensuring you are still enjoying a varied and balanced diet. All our Nutritional Therapists are both BANT & CHNC registered and specialise in helping clients with food intolerances.

We can however only offer this money back phlebotomy guarantee once per patient to make the guarantee fair for all.
Finger-Prick Try Again Guarantee
If you are not successful in obtaining a viable finger prick sample (1 in 10 are unsuccessful) we find that in situations where finger-prick instructions have been followed correctly and success has not been met, then a second attempt will most likely meet with the same fate. But the choice is yours – so if you want to take this risk we can send out another finger-prick kit free of charge for you, but if you fail again and request a refund we will need to deduct an administration charge of £5.
Alternatively of course we can look at phlebotomy options for you such as a nurse visit, attendance at a BMI hospital or you can arrange your own vacutainer sample collection and we won’t charge you for the failed finger-prick kit.
One year usage Guarantee
You have up to one year from when you have purchased the kit to return it to the Laboratory in the supplied envelope. After a year has expired if you still would like your test please contact us and we’ll see what we can do for you. We may just need to check expiry dates of batch components.
Refund requests must be made by email to assistance@bluehorizonmedicals within the timeframes stated above together with a reason for the request. Unused kits should be sent to Blue Horizon Medicals, Tavyside Health Centre, Abbey Rise, Tavistock PL19 9FD. Please do not use the supplied envelopes as these go to the laboratory and may incur further charges. We guarantee that any refunds or pathology points due to be credited will be done so within seven working days of our receipt of the kit.
