NO THIS TEST IS NOT ALLERGY TESTING. This is better explained as intolerances or sensitivities. If you consider a spectrum of reaction, allergies are those elements of a strong, immediate reaction (let’s say the top 10-20%). This test is looking for the lower range of reaction (lets say the range below 80%).
REGARDING ALLERGIES – our naturopath Cassandra is anaphylactic (to nuts, seafood & mango) and as an experienced allergy-sufferer, she recommends that if ALLERGIES ARE SUSPECTED you obtain specific allergy testing (ie, the ‘skin prick’ test). Allergy results can be COMBINED with these hair test results, for a comprehensive overview. We do not offer allergy testing through the clinic, it is best obtained via your GP, where some may be bulk billed.
