What people are saying

I feel like a child again, happy and full of life. After following my Allergenics report and cleaning up my system by taking out the foods that were harmful for me, all the horrible PMT, bloating, & fatigue went away. I loved the unexpected bonus of dropping a pants size and finding my feel good weight without having to change any other aspect of my life. Thank you so much!

– Rachel Evans, Auckland - April 21

I am so thankful for giving Allergenics a go! I was skeptical at first, but after years of chronic migraines, nausea, and fatigue I decided there wasn’t much to lose. Within the first week after cutting out the foods suggested, I had significantly more energy and no pain. I have maintained this diet for more than 3 months now and can delightedly say I also haven’t had a single migraine (a drastic change from having multiple a week). I’m so much more healthy and happy – cannot recommend this company enough!

– Ruby Heslop, Nelson - Feb 21

We were so distressed over a time that should have been exciting and fun – baby’s first solids! Instead of the fun stage of trying new foods, we were dealing with never ending face rashes and even swelling. A naturopath advised us to get her hair tested and the rest is history! After her hair test we were able to know what foods her body could and could not tolerate and within days her rashes cleared up and we haven’t seen a single bump. She is so happy and healthy.

I am more than thrilled to have found Allergenics. I now know which foods to avoid, which vitamins I should be supplementing with and which hormones are not in balance and after having implemented the changes, I feel fantastic, no more tiredness, brain-fog, bloat or reflux. I am going to have all 3 of my daughters tested as I wish I had known years ago, what I know now. It’s an investment in our well-being and well worth it! I cannot recommend Allergenics highly enough.

– Shannon Kenney July 20

For the past 2 years I’ve had this very annoying itchy rash that comes & goes, it’s only on my face & nowhere else on my body! After changing skincare products & makeup with no relief I decided to get a food intolerance test done with Allergenics and SO PLEASED I did. Turns out I’m highly intolerant to Wheat & moderately intolerant to Dairy! So stoked to finally get to the bottom of it. Another crazy side affect I’ve noticed is that I’m alot stronger in the gym too. Highly recommend getting this hair test done!

– Ania Gratkowski July 20

Wow! I have just recently had myself and 2 teenagers tested. After just 3 days of changes we have seen a difference. Especially finding my daughter had a sensitivity to Chlorine. Bottled water for 3 days has already proven an amazing difference to her skin! The blotches and itchiness have just about gone! So pleased we went ahead with your testing. A long way to go to eliminate foods but already we are all feeling so much better!

– Angela Gichard

Thank God!!! I finally have answers. Was a sceptic but did this out of desperation after having years of expensive tests. My gastro also recommended this. Cut out foods on list and I’m a new person.

Thank you!!!

– Misha Phelan

I used Allergenics with my 15 month old as doctors wouldn’t test for coeliac or allergies – Allergenics confirmed my suspicions and now 5 weeks later my wee guy has amazing skin, is happier and is tolerating his new diet with no issues.

– Jen Tay

The results were outstanding! – I first noticed after about a week how much more energy I had – I would literally bounce out of bed in the morning. Thanks for giving me the spring in my step back – I would definitely recommend a hair test to all!!

– A Carr

Ever since using Allergenics I’ve felt amazing and most of my chronic symptoms have disappeared! Highly recommended.

– Chantal Marie

Wish I hadn’t waited and wish I had found this place earlier. I have been totally amazed by the effect cutting these foods out of my diet has had. My energy levels sky rocketed after 1 WEEK – noticed by my husband too!
