Re: Where to do food stamp test?

Somebody told me that this test defines which kind of food are suitable to each body. Some people suffers from indigestion or fatigue all the time because they eat food that does not suit their body.

Have you asked that "somebody" where they got a test... ie, was it at a Doctors, hospital, or maybe at an allergy clinic?

I feel like a dentist. OK, so what did your French speaking Acupuncturist say this test is called in French, or what type of Lab, in French, does this test in Paris. You then have a head start on me in finding one in the French speaking part of CH, this site will probably find one for you, if not, this one should.

And don't forget to report back, someone else here at a later date may also be interested in what a "food stamp test" is and what type of lab does it.

Re: Where to do food stamp test?

The food groups and types have been around for ages, why don't you try Payot near the gare Cornavin, they speak English well and might even have books on this on the shelves? Otherwise your GP might also know about his, or your pharmacist.

Is this a blood type corrensponding food group? This was pretty big, a few years back.

Why is this thread called food stamp? Got me all excited...

Re: Where to do food stamp test?

In the US, it's easy. If you make less than $903 net income per month, you qualify for food stamps. I don't know what it is here.

But this sounds like it is based on some sort of nutrition theory. You'll have to find out which theory to find the test.

I suggest sampling all kinds of foods. If you like it and it doesn't make you feel sick, great. Just don't eat too much of it.

Re: Where to do food stamp test?

People can be intolerant without being completely allergic to certain foods (or inorganic materials like toothepaste or washing powder or cosmetics etc) and not even know it.

An allergy doctor can tell you if you have a doubt. Try "allergologue" in Grumpy's link www.directories.ch

Re: Where to do food stamp test?

Hi, I did a food allergy test with a Kinesiologist, she used small viles of dehydrated food, which was placed on mt abdomen, and performed the test.

it was really helpful, i found out that i amnot allergic to swiss milk, but rather the fat content in the milk/cream!
