Allergy Screening

What is an Allergy? Allergies are those things that your body reacts to immediatley; most people are aware of their Allergies.

Some common Allergy culprits are:

  • Trees and Pollens
  • Dust Mites
  • Nuts
  • Cosmetics
  • Metals

  • Medications
  • Environmental pollutants
  • Food preservatives & Colourings
  • Fungals and Moulds

Common Allergy Symptoms

You’d think common allergy symptoms are often those which you would associate with a cold, such as sneezing or coughing. However, allergies can affect virtually any part of your body and as such there are a number of different symptoms that can happen under normal allergic circumstances.

Here are just some of the most common allergy symptoms:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Diarrhoea
  • Sneezing fits
  • Runny/blocked nose
  • Sinus Pain
  • Itchiness

  • Rashes
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sore Throat
  • Asthma Attacks
  • Swelling

Serious Allergy Problems

Most allergy symptoms are minor and only result in small discomforts; however at the same time many can be very severe. For example, allergies can often cause anaphylaxis in which the body has a reaction so strong that it goes into a state of shock and begins to “shut down”. In this instance an allergy treatment needs to be administered immediately or a reaction like this could be fatal.

Many common causes could actually trigger a reaction like this, such as insect bites and stings, medication and nuts. If you ever see anyone who appears to be having an anaphylactic shock then alert the emergency services as quickly as possible.

What happens during a Consultation?

Our first meeting will take in the region of 1 hour. We use a detailed health questionnaire to gain a fuller picture of your health, lifestyle, diet, past and current medical problems to assess how effectively your body is working at the moment and how this can potentially be improved.

We will then carry out your Allergy / Food Intolerance Screening or Whole Body Screening using the Electro Dermal System system. The client remains fully clothed and will feel nothing throughout the screening process. Our system runs the tests, and the results are displayed on the computer screen, along with courses of treatment.

We will then have a discussion about the results, after which we will make some initial recommendations. Following your consultation we will send you a full email report and supporting handouts .

Description of Health Screeing items

‘E’ Numbers and Colourants

Food additives are substances added to food to preserve flavour or improve its taste and appearance. With the advent of processed foods in the second half of the 20th Century many more additives have been introduced, of both natural and artificial origin.

Many Clients are unaware that Food additives/’E’ numbers are affecting them, but one of the most shocking and regularly taken in drinks is the artificial additives: Aspartame, Acuesflame, Canderel, Sweetex.

Pollens, Dust and Grasses

One of our most popular tests. We test for:

  • Mixed Grasses, shrub pollens: buttercup, heather, nettle, plantain, buttercup and many others
  • Mixed Tree Pollens, eg. Alder, Ash, Beech, Hazel, Elm, Oak, Poplar, Willow and many more
  • House Dust Mite
  • Mixed Pollens: Daffodil, Hawthorn, Oat grass, Ragweed, and many perennial flowers

Vitamin Deficiencies

If you are low in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and essential fatty acids you will not be performing at your best and you are putting your health at risk.

Heavy Metal Profile

Metals cause some of the most hidden health problems on the planet. Do you actually know what is in your water? Yes, Aluminium. It can cause havoc with the skin, and can be responsible for Eczema, Dry Skin and Contact Dermatitis. Aluminium is a hidden danger and is also found in cooking foil, cooking pans, deodorants, bleached flour, table salt and baking flour. Aluminium can affect the brain and slows learning; is this one of the causes of Alzheimer's? Aluminium is also found in processed cheese and is used as an anti-caking agent in food.

“Large numbers of people in our aluminium-using society are the victims of slow aluminium poisoning” wrote Stephen E Levick, MD of the Yale University School of Medicine, and said that there has been an increasing amount of literature implicating aluminium as the cause of dementia or mental deterioration.

How many Mercury (Amalgam) fillings do you have? Are they affecting your health? We test for all metals: Iron, Boron, Cadmium, Copper, Silver, Tin, Lead etc.

Chemicals and Inhalants

Chemicals are all around us in our environment, and in our everyday lives.

We get up in the morning and brush our teeth - nearly all toothpaste contains Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, usually used in the automotive industry as a degreaser. Ladies who apply lipstick, who unknowingly wipe lead across their lips, and apply it at least four times a day, seven days a week!

Chemicals like Formaldehyde, which are common and found in printing ink, textile fabrics, carpets, chipboard, adhesives, as a preservative in cosmetics and toiletries, lozenges, cleaning products and garden fertilisers. Formaldehyde is the most common skin irritant and can cause breathlessness.

We also screen for bleach, creosote, crude oil (found in most plastics), textiles (lycra, mixed nylons, latex, lanolin, etc.), perfumes, petrol fumes, stain removers, paint, aerosol propellant, tobacco, diesel fumes and washing powders (please bring your own make).

Digestive Enzymes

We look at any digestive enzyme deficiencies that may be contributing to an impaired digestive system. We also screen for Candida, a form of yeast fungus in the body that can be the cause of many unexplained illnesses. Lack of Digestive Enzymes can cause: Acid Reflux, Bloating, Belching, Food Allergies, viral infections, inflammation, and injuries.
