Intolerance can be defined as the incapacity to soak up the nutrients required by the body. In this situation the body fails to metabolize the nutrients required, leading to ill health.
A drug intolerance is an adverse effect from a drug, whereby the patient reacts to a normal dosage as if they had taken an overdose. This occurs simply because the body is unable to metabolize the drug and correctly absorb the medication.
Some Examples of Drug Intolerance:

These are of the food stuffs high in salicylates which feed this organism. Hilary can detect Toxoplasma and advise a diet free until it is cleared from the body. The foods can then be re-introduced.
