Gastrolyzer Test


This test is available at Remedies B’Kara

The Gastrolyzer®️ consists of a breath analysis monitor that can help to find the cause of your gut discomfort, such as flatulence, bloating and nausea.

A Gastrolyzer®️ breath test is a quick, reliable, non-invasive mode of testing. It works by measuring the level of hydrogen and/or methane on your breath that is produced when your gut breaks down food. Based on the levels of these gases, it can help to determine if you have a condition, such as food intolerance, malabsorption or bacterial overgrowth problem. Once your doctor or dietitian has your hydrogen and/ or methane breath levels, they can advise you how best to treat your condition. This may be through changing your diet, lifestyle, taking medication, or a combination.

Preparation for the breath test

It is important that the patient preparation is followed so that a true baseline reading
can be measured.

Up to four weeks before the breath test:

  • No antibiotics.
  • No stool hardeners or softeners.
  • Avoid pre and probiotics.


24 hours before the breath test:

  • Avoid foods containing grains, dairy, fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and beans.
  • Eat chicken or fish, plain rice, eggs and water.


On the day of the breath test:

  • Fast for 12 hours before the test.
  • No smoking, no chewing candy, no exercise.
  • Clean your teeth two hours prior.


Breath testing process, direct to the monitor:

Provided you have completed the patient preparation, including fasting, you will be
asked to provide an initial breath test. This will be your baseline reading. Once you have
your baseline reading, you will be given a solution to drink.

Then, depending on what condition you are being tested for, you will be asked to follow
a protocol by providing further breath samples at certain times.

Hydrogen & Methane Breath Testing (HMBT)

The bacteria in your gut will produce more hydrogen and/or methane when it is reacting
badly to something you have ingested. A doctor/dietitian can compare your breath
samples after you have drunk the solution to your baseline reading to help find the
problem and advise you on the best course of action.

HMBT with the Gastrolyzer®️ range can help reach a diagnosis for:

  • Sugar intolerances
  • Intolerance of dairy products
  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Investigation of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a powerful treatment modality used in psychotherapy and health. A growing body of research now validates hypnosis as a highly effective tool for pain reduction, stress, anxiety, and a range of medical issues.

In the therapeutic relationship, clients access a peaceful state of internal focused concentration, which allows for creative insight and higher awareness; this state of focused concentration is not unlike the brain wave state that is achieved in deep meditation.

In clinical hypnosis, the client is in COMPLETE CONTROL of the process. Anything you’ve seen or heard about regarding stage hypnosis is nothing at all like what you’ll experience in a hypnotherapy session with our clinician. You’ll find clinical hypnosis to be an extremely effective and gentle, healing tool for change.

We integrate best practices in hypnosis with clinical counselling and coaching, and can assist clients in the following areas:

Habit Control
Public Speaking
Stress Reduction
Pain Control
Fears, Phobias, Anxiety
Core Belief Transformation
Forgiveness Work
Decision Making
Resolution of Past Issues
Motivation and Performance Issues

Skin Prick Allergy Testing

  • We can test for a wide range of allergies
  • Straight forward & minimally invasive
  • Clear results in as little as 15 minutes

Allergies to pollen, dust mites, animal dander, and foods can have a negative impact on the well-being of individuals. An allergy is a disorder caused by an exaggerated IgE-mediated immune response to allergens.

Allergy and related diseases are extensive and rapidly growing problems affecting up to 30-40% of the world population and if left untreated can lead to severe diseases such as dermatitis, rhinitis, asthma, conjunctivitis, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms of allergies include difficulty in breathing, rashes, swelling, runny nose and vomiting. 

At Remedies our rapid allergy test covers some of the most prevalent allergies. 

The test uses a modified Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay that detects specific IgE antibodies. Allergy test is particularly well-suited for patients being treated with antihistamines. The test is straight forward and minimally invasive by means of a simple pin prick to identify the degree of allergen sensitisation. Visible results are available in as little as 15 minutes.

Food Intolerance Testing

Find out which foods might be affecting your health and well-being.

Foodprint is a blood test that shows if our bodies are intolerant to some foods. Food intolerance or non-allergic food hypersensitivity is a negative reaction to a food, beverage, food additive, or compounds found in foods. Foodprint is a highly sensitive and accurate laboratory test that is the first step in identifying which foods may be causing an inappropriate immune response and affecting your health.

Intolerance produces symptoms in one or more body organs and systems. It is not a true food allergy. A true food allergy requires the presence of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies against the food, whereas food intolerance is usually associated with the presence of food-specific immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies. Symptoms of food intolerance are often delayed for many hours or even days and for this reason it is often hard to identify the problem foods. The Foodprint test can identify the foods that cause this delayed sensitivity by detecting food-specific IgG antibodies.


Often patients report multiple symptoms such as gut pain with headaches and skin rash. Common Symptoms include:

  • Anxiety (Acute or Chronic)
  • Stress, Tension and a Sense of Frustration
  • Constipation, Diarrhea, Bloating and Indigestion
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Insomnia
  • Joint Pain and Roughness
  • Asthma , Bronchitis or Chest Pain
  • Water Retention
  • Muscle Pain and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Itchy Skin
  • Weight Control Problems
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

How it Works:

  1. Blood samples are taken at our clinics by a health practitioner
  2. Blood samples are analysed by an accredited lab by using a new, state of the art assay based on microarray technology to detect IgG antibodies specific for over 200 foods including a combination of dairy, meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, cereals and nuts.
  3. You will receive your test result from the health practitioner within seven working days along with a dietary regime, specially tailored for you, and a full Support Package including “Help Notes”. A qualified nutritionist will also provide you with the needed support and follow up.

Our Nutrition team is also here to help, if you have a query about your results or the test, or would like a personalized dietary plan based on your results.

At Remedies we offer 2 types of food intolerance testing. These include:

  • Food Detective – 59 foods Price: €150
  • Food Print – 220 foods Price: €260

Food Detective® is a point-of-care test that screens for the presence of IgG antibodies to 59 common foods, giving results in 40 minutes. FoodPrint® is a laboratory-based system which utilises an innovative, colorimetric microarray-based ELISA technology for the measurement of food-specific IgG antibodies in human serum or plasma for over 200 different foods. Both systems use specific food extracts to identify the corresponding level of circulating IgG antibodies to these potential antigens and can therefore detect foods to which the immune system is reacting.


  1. an enzyme deficiency or chemical sensitivity
  2. an immune response related to food specific antibodies called ( IgG) antibodies These antibodies recognize and bind to specific food proteins to form complexes in the body which can accumulate in joints and other organs where they cause many of the symptoms associated with food intolerance.
It can be difficult to know where to start with making changes to your diet. If you are unsure or have any queries, we recommend that you seek the advice of a qualified expert such as your health practitioner, dietician or nutritionist, who can answer your queries, and help you modify your eating habits accordingly. Our Nutrition team is also here to help, if you have a query about your results or the test, or would like a personalized dietary plan based on your results.

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple and painless test used to measure the level of electrical activity and rhythm in your heart. Sensors are attached to the skin on the chest, arms and legs to detect the electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats. ECG is used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart’s health:

  • Check abnormalities, such as thickened heart muscle
  • Check your heart rhythm
  • Diagnose a heart attack
  • See if you have poor blood flow to your heart muscle

Before an ECG, you may need to have your hair shaved or skin cleaned so the electrodes stick on your body properly. Also, if you are wearing an underwire bra, you might be asked to take it off as it could affect the readings of the ECG.

Stress ECG

A stress test, also called an exercise stress test, shows how your heart works during physical activity

A stress test or exercise stress test can determine your risk of having heart disease. It assesses how your heart works during physical activity since exercise makes your heart pump harder and faster this test may reveal blood flow problems within the heart.

A doctor performs the test. The doctor will learn how much your heart can manage before an abnormal heart beat rhythm kicks in or blood flow to your heart muscle drops. During an exercise stress test you will be asked to walk on a treadmill. The level of exercise will become increasingly difficult. Your ECG, heart rate, and blood pressure will be tracked throughout to enable the doctor to assess and it lets your doctor know how your heart responds to being under stress.


Ten small sticky patches called electrodes are put on your arms, legs and chest. These are connected by wires to an ECG machine which picks up the electrical signals that make your heart beat. This electrical activity is recorded and printed onto paper.
The whole test takes a few minutes and is completely painless. You will need to lie still as moving can affect the results.
An ECG can help detect problems with your heart rate or heart rhythm. It can help doctors tell if you’re having a heart attack or if you’ve had a heart attack in the past. An ECG is usually one of the first heart tests you will have. It does have some limitations, so often you will have one or more other tests too. An abnormal ECG reading doesn’t always mean there is something wrong with your heart.
