At The Wellness Emporium we offer a variety of allergy and intolerance testing dependent on your case.
The Elimination Diet (this is a program, not a test) is often our first port of call and is considered the gold standard for uncovering food intolerances. The Elimination Diet is a short term eating plan that eliminates certain foods that may be causing your symptoms. After symptoms resolve, foods are then reintroduced back in one by one while monitoring your symptoms.
The Elimination Diet does not cost you anything extra and can be incorporated into your individualised program when you book with us. Alternatively, you can purchase our very own online program that takes you through the steps of an elimination diet and helps you to create your very own individualised diet. Find out more here.
500 Item Hair / Saliva Test
The 500 Item Hair / Saliva Test is a bio-compatibility hair analysis that assists you to identify 500 different items that are either compatible or incompatible with your body. The 500 items are common items from local supermarkets such as Woolworths and Coles and Health Food Stores. The items include bathroom, laundry & kitchen products, as well as over 350 food items . With over 30 years of research, this test is aimed at providing a list that is specifically unique to you and your body.
The 500 Item Hair / Saliva Test can be purchased online without an appoinment. To download a sample report and find out more, click here.
Pathology Testing for Allergies & Intolerance
Some of the pathology tests we use for food allergies, intolerances and sensitivities:
IgE (immune-immediate reaction) is often elevated in atopic diseases such as allergic asthma, hay fever and atopic dermatitis. IgE can assess your reaction to both foods and inhalants such as tress and mould.
IgG (delayed reaction) can assess your delayed reaction to foods and also inhalants including grasses and mould, as well as cat dander, dog dander, and household dust.
Gluten Sensitivity & Coeliac Gene Testing. Coeliac Gene Testing is useful for those who already adhere to a gluten free diet, as it does not require the consumption of gluten for the test.
At The Wellness Emporium we often combined the IgE and IgG test to get the best possible picture and results. Download a sample report here.
To learn more about this test and more we recommend booking in for our initial wellness appointment,where we can advice what test will be best suited to your health concerns and goals.
