Natural Allergy testing is safe, painless and non-invasive. It can be used for people of any age, from newborns through to seniors. I have also tested cats, dogs and horses.
Allergies are often just one piece of the picture, so I believe it is essential to test for allergies and sensitivities, along with toxins, intolerances, nutritional deficiencies, parasites/infections, emotional issues and structural imbalances. This gives a truly holistic view of the causes for your symptoms.
How do you test?
I use Muscle Response Testing also known as Autonomic Response Testing or Applied Kinesiology. This process taps into the body’s wisdom and has been in use since the 1950s.
A strong muscle is found; usually, an arm and your response to the various potential allergens is determined. In the case of small children, people with joint issues, those who are very sore, or the elderly and infirm, we test through another adult. This is known as surrogate testing. This is also the method for testing pets.
What can you test for?
Foods including milk, eggs, gluten and grains, fruits, nuts and much more. Usually, the component parts of foods are tested, such as the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fats etc.
Environmental Allergens such as dust and dust mites, moulds, perfumes, pollens, pets chemicals, perfumes, nickel, latex etc
Electro-magnetic Frequencies from cell phones to TVs and wifi to fluorescent lights and even Weather Patterns.
I have over 300 allergen vials available for testing and will test those that are relevant to you. You can also bring any suspect items, nutritional supplements, herbs or medications and we can test them.
What happens in natural allergy testing?
There are two options I use for natural allergy testing, and in both cases, you receive the results at the end of the visit.
I can only test for a broad range of substances and provide you with a list of those to which you are sensitive. This list may consist of 20 or more allergens and can be overwhelming. I will provide a guide book with a list of the allergens that came up, and some general recommendations as to which you need to avoid.
The method preferred by me and the majority of my clients is to assess your allergens concerning your health concerns and symptoms.
I can determine the main triggers for those health problems and symptoms, considering allergies, sensitivities, toxins, intolerances, nutritional deficiencies, parasites/infections, emotional issues and structural imbalances.
In this case, your guide book will provide a list of your symptoms and health concerns and their main triggers.
It will include information on allergy treatments to desensitise you, which particular food and environmental allergens to avoid, any lifestyle changes or nutritional support needed, how to address any parasite or infection detected and structural or emotional treatments that would be beneficial.
I find this method to provide more practical information than Method 1, providing you with relevant information that removes the guess work as to what to avoid and can improve your life in the short and long term.
