Optiway Food Intolerance testing

Optiway Food Intolerance testing

Optiway is a Food Intolerance Test that tests a full menu of 222 different types of food. This is a simple way to test which foods are suitable for you and which you are intolerant to.


There is a common misconception between an allergy and an intolerance. While allergies can appear almost instantly, Food Intolerance symptoms can take up to 72 hours to appear. And while allergies can be life threatening, Food Intolerances are quite common, affecting approximately 45% of the population. Food Intolerances can however have a negative impact on many aspects of a person’s daily activities and cause significant discomfort.


If you’ve ever suffered from migraines, eczema, skin rashes, fatigue, joint pain, bloating, IBS, diarrhoea, nausea, sinusitis, anxiety, constipation, acne or depression, to name just a few, and you’ve battled to understand why you could have an intolerance towards a specific food or drink. Food Intolerances occur when a person experiences an adverse physiological response to a particular food. The symptoms are very specific to the individual and the type of food in question. When you take into account that such a large part of the population is affected by food intolerance, as opposed to only 2% affected by food allergies, the OptiWay Test is the most effective and accurate way to determine which foods trigger negative reactions and which foods can be enjoyed freely.

Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. It prevents the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from axon endings at the neuromuscular junction and thus causes flaccid paralysis. Infection with the bacterium causes the disease botulism.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are small injections of gel, typically made up of hylauronic acid, that fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. You can have dermal fillers in different parts of your face: around the eye, cheeks, mouth and jawline, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue.
