London’s complementary and natural health event
Complementary health will for many conjure up ideas of quack practitioners performing strange voodoo rituals to exorcise the demons that cause you to get a headache. The swamp where spurious health misinformation runs rife. At CamExpo, an exhibition for complementary and natural health held at London’s Olympia we did indeed witness some kooky treatments like reiki, magnet and even tuning fork therapy for which the supporting science ranges from lacking to non-existent, but there was also a lot of good stuff spanning nutrition, supplements and fitness.

Food Detective is a product that has caught our eye previously this year at Be:Fit London. It provides a potential solution to the problem of false self diagnosis of food intolerance, which that is currently plaguing the world of health. It has become an all to common occurrence for someone who’s health may not be at its peak to convince and then declare themselves as intolerant without a single shred of evidence. This can result in people removing foods from their diets unnecessarily whilst failing to address the root of the problem. The is an intolerance testing kit that works by the user adding a pin-prick of blood to developer solutions which are then applied to a dish containing tiny samples of 59 different food proteins including common allergens like dairy, wheat, gluten, soya, nut and shellfish. The results can be analysed at home or sent to Cambridge Nutritional Sciences to be analysed in laboratory conditions.
