Allergy Testing

We offer a variety of affordable and reliable allergy tests to identify intolerances and allergies in both the food you consume and your environment.

What is allergy testing?

For food allergies and intolerances we use the Food DetectiveTM test. It measures IgG antibodies which may be linked to inflammatory conditions in the body, manifesting in a range of health issues.

What happens during an allergy test?

A reaction tray is spotted with food protein extracts. A small blood sample is taken from a finger-prick and is then diluted and added to the tray.

The use of detector and developer solutions identifies the presence of food antibodies through the appearance of one or more blue spots on the tray. Reference to the food layout plan allows the foods causing antibody production to be identified. Once identified, the trigger foods may be eliminated from your diet.

We also offer a more comprehensive test in store. Please call for more information.

Des Lardner& Emily Grieger are trained in the use of the several different Allergy tests. Please call the store to find out which test will suit your needs on (03) 53827766.
