Do you have a food allergy or intolerance?

Food allergy or intolerance exists when there is an inappropriate reaction to the ingestion of food, or irritation from an external source, such as handling food.

A food sensitivity reaction may be instant or might be delayed by as much as 3 days.

Common signs and symptoms of food sensitivities are:

  • dark circles and puffiness under the eyes
  • diarrhoea or constipation
  • bloating and flatulence
  • eczema, dermatitis or hives
  • irritability, anxiety
  • inability to loose weight
  • and many more.

Your reaction could be caused by a food protein, starch or other food component, or by a contaminant found in food, such as colourings or preservatives.

Your immune system might or might not respond to the reaction.

Increase and possible causes of food sensitivity

The incidence of food sensitivity or intolerance has increased at an alarming rate in the last 30 years. Possible causes include increased stresses on our immune systems, earlier weaning and earlier introduction of solid foods to infants, genetic manipulation of plants and increased ingestion of fewer foods.

If you or your child suffers from a suspected food sensitivity, the hair allergy test is the safe, easy, affordable way to assess the problem.

Other types of sensitivities

Reactions can also be triggered by things in your environment, other than food. When you order an Allergenics food sensitivity test we automatically test for:

  • Dust and mites
  • Pollen
  • Grasses
  • Cat, dog, horse, goat and cow hair

  • Petrol, diesel and LPG
  • Paint
  • Cigarettes
  • Detergents
  • Mould and dry rot
  • Hair dye
  • Round-Up
  • Straw, hay and chalk dust

If you suspect you are sensitive to or intolerant of a substance not on this list, please send a sample of the substance with your lock of hair. Note: Please do not send hazardous materials.
