K-Test: New Food Intolerance Test - Reveals foods which uniquely benefit individuals’ body, age and lifestyle within minutes - Friday 18 January 2008 PDF Print For more information:Contact Sarah or Claire on 0207 498 8211 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com K-Test: New Food Intolerance Test - Reveals foods which uniquely benefit individuals’ body, age and lifestyle within minutes - Up to 45% of people have symptoms linked to food intolerance – headaches, fatigue, poor complexion, feeling bloated or just feeling below par *. A revolutionary new and affordable food intolerance test now available in pharmacies, gyms, spas and health clubs, can identify exactly how we can manage our dietary intake so that it is tailored to our individual body’s requirements. Use this Food Allergy and Intolerance Week, 21 – 25 January 2008, as the turning point to identify any culprits in your diet that can be adversely affecting your well-being. Unlike other food intolerance tests, some of which use invasive techniques and can take up to three weeks to confirm results, the K-Test is non-invasive and shows instant results. By simply placing two fingers on the K-Test unit, within minutes of taking the test, you will receive a print-out of your own personal results, right there and then. K-Test puts the individual in control by enabling them to understand how they can regain their equilibrium and optimise their health. K-Test ‘s Virtual Nutritionist is a comprehensive, interactive, web-based tool which enables individuals to understand their results, substitute foods which do not agree with them and nutritionally balance their diet. The Virtual Nutritionist is fully supported by a team of specialist nutritionists and naturopaths. The K-Test is the culmination of extensive research and development, testing and validation by a dedicated team of professionals. Applying techniques from forensic science, K-Test uses the unique infra-red molecular ‘fingerprint’ of a food, to measure an individual’s reaction to that food and identify current or potential problems right there and then. K-Test researchers realised that each foodstuff has a selection of resonant frequencies, which represent its fingerprint. Dr N. Mohan, General Practitioner at the Ascot Medical Centre commented, ”Nutrition is fundamental to good health, so I am delighted that there is now a non-invasive, specific test to help patients identify which foods specifically suit their body and lifestyle. Today too many people have an imbalanced approach to nutrition, which often is the cause of minor and even chronic disorders. A test such as K-Test is a self-empowering tool and the early results have been very promising. I am keen to work with K-Test as it continues to progress through further clinical assessment." *Patient Support Group Allergy UK estimate. www.allergyuk.org -ends- Notes to Editors: For further information, case studies or to interview an expert, please contact Sarah Allen or Claire Dunbar at Fuel PR: firstname.lastname@example.org / Claire@fuelrefuel.com or 020 7498 8211.

If the individual has a pre-diagnosed condition e.g. coeliac disease or if symptoms persist, they must consult their GP. Kymatika is not intended to diagnose diseases, nor will it necessarily pick up disease-related intolerances ·The Kymatika K-Test is marketed and distributed exclusively in the UK by Healthantec Ltd, 4th Floor, Exchange House, 494 Midsummer Boulevard, Central Milton Keynes, MK9 2EA The K-Test Trials During the development of the K-Test, Kymatika tested over 500 people, of whom 68% were women and 32% men. In trials conducted during 2007, each person was tested with 40 foods. On average, the red ‘avoidance’ scores were about 8.5% of the total of foods tested, 28% were amber ‘monitoring’ food scores, with the majority of foods scoring around 60%, deemed fine for those tested. Of those who retested on a monthly basis to monitor changes, after having slightly adjusted their own personal diet, a marked improvement in the overall feeling of well-being was reported.
