WHATS THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN ALLERGY AND INTOLERANCE?
Allergy and Intolerance are often confused
or thought of as similar conditions when in reality they are very
different. Allergy is an immediate, sometimes dangerous or life
threatening reaction to a food or drink. This is often present from a
young age and always involves antibody type IgE. Intolerance can be
developed later in life and takes longer for symptoms to present
themselves, making it more difficult to pin point the culprit food(s).
Testing can be beneficial to discover the trigger foods and drinks
WHAT DO YOU TEST FOR?
We test for over 350 types of food
including wheat, eggs, nuts etc. We also test for over 350 non-food
items like pet hair pollen and detergents. If you need a full list get
in touch and we can get you one.
WHAT AGE IS THE YOUNGEST
YOU WOULD CONSIDER TESTING?
We don't test anybody
under the age of six.
CAN I TAKE THE TEST IF
Optimum nutrition during pregnancy and
breast-feeding is vital for mother and child. To reduce any possible
risk to the mother or baby, it is our lab's protocol not to offer tests,
advice or lifestyle changes during pregnancy and/or breast-feeding.
ARE THE TESTS PAINFUL?

from your body

head. It can come from your leg , arm even chest.

IVE BEEN CUTTING OUT
FOODS ALREADY SHOULD I REINTRODUCE THEM?
No our tests test your hair at a cellular
level so there is no need for you to have been eating your trigger foods
recently. They will still be found by our testing equipment.
HOW DOES YOUR TEST
COMPARE TO THE BLOOD TEST?
These two tests are very different in what
is tested, the process and the results. A blood test is testing for IgE
mediated allergies and will only produce results listing reactions in
the immunoglobulin system (these are estimated at only 2% of all
allergies) Our hair sample test is examining changes at a cellular level
because the latest science shows that up to 43% of allergies are in fact
a reaction in T cells. The two tests are measuring totally different
reactions and will produce totally different results.
SHOULD I GET A BLOOD TEST
OR A HAIR SAMPLE TEST?
only offer hair sampling. Currently the main way of identifying the two
types of allergies : IgE and Non IgE is on the reaction time from
consuming or being in contact with the item. If you notice a reaction
that is almost instant or within 2 hours max , you would normally
consult with your GP and he might consider a blood test. These are
normally essential for more serious allergies which fortunately only
account for 2% of all allergies. If your reaction time is slower or you
are unable to identify the link between your symptoms then it is more
than likely you have a non IgE mediated allergy. In this instance , we
would recommend our hair based non IgE mediated allergy test.
CAN YOU TEST AGAINST
SPECIFIC ITEMS NOT INCLUDED ON THE STANDARD TEST?

there allergies. This has included strange foods, supplements and
medication as well as pet hair feathers and even leaves from house
