Food and Environmental Sensitivity Assessment


The Food and Environmental Sensitivity Assessment is a safe and non-invasive test that utilises hair analysis to assess sensitivity to a broad range of food and environmental compounds. Sensitivities and intolerances to foods and environmental compounds are on the increase, and can cause varying amounts of distress to the body. In many cases, the exact triggers for this distress cannot always be readily identified. The body systems that are most affected by these reactive compounds are the gastrointestinal and immune systems.

This hair test is able to identify sensitivity to a broad range of different substances including food and environmental compounds. Where applicable, the hair testing report will also provide nutritional supplement recommendations which are aimed at bringing the gastrointestinal and immune systems back into balance.

What our customers are saying

For me, working with Allergenics has provided us with insights, information and support that I am truly grateful for. These results have had a direct impact to our health and well being and we will be forever grateful!


One of my most valuable assets in my naturopathic work would definitely be having the services available from Allergenics. I have found their intolerance testing to be incredibly accurate.

I just wanted to write and say how grateful we are of your services and especially the on-line option . Gilbert's skin is now amazingly clear and he is a much more contented and happy boy who is now able to reach his full potential.

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

Wish I hadn't waited and wish I had found this place earlier. I have been totally amazed by the affect cutting these foods out of my diet has had. My energy levels skyrocketed after 1 WEEK (Noticed by my Husband too.)
