It can be a mystery why your child may have a sore tummy or is bloated, picks up every bug that is coming their way, has eczema without a known reason, has cracks in the corners of their mouth, has puffy eyes, has asthma, has diarrhoea or is constipated, among many other signs of sensitivities.


​When a child is experiencing these, there often is an underlying intolerance that their bodies are constantly dealing with. This can make them very tired and become "sickly".

This particular food intolerance is ideal for children as there is no needle involved. Simply cut a few hairs of their head and send it away to the lab.

Please note the difference between allergies and sensitivities below.

An "allergy test" needs a blood sample or in the case of coeliac, can also be done with a stool sample. For more information on testing for Coeliac, check the Transglutaminase IgA test offered.


Classical allergy is an example of an immune-based sensitivity reaction. It is usually an immediate reaction (within 30 minutes) and involves a special subset of immune antibodies called IgE.

These antibodies trigger the release of histamine, giving all the classic symptoms of allergy i.e. swelling of the lips, mouth and throat, skin rash, itching, hives and respiratory symptoms.

These symptoms can vary in intensity and in extreme cases may lead to anaphylaxis, which could be fatal.

Some allergic reactions are more delayed and occur up to 48 hours after exposure to the substance. These reactions may be immune-based (allergy), or a non-immune (sensitivity) physiological reaction. The immune-based delayed reactions usually involve different subsets of antibodies called IgG or IgM.


They present with more diverse symptoms such as skin reactions, headachesfatigue and gastrointestinal symptoms such as bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea and constipation.

The Food Intolerance and Environmental Sensitivity Test is a comprehensive sensitivity screen that will identifying triggers for intolerance reactions. It is able to identify reactivity to a broad range of substances including foodsbeveragesfood additives and environmental compounds.




  • Allergic or inflammatory type reactions such as eczema, allergic dermatitis, psoriasis, hay-fever, rhinitis, sinusitis, itchy-red eyes
  • Gastrointestinal disturbances such as IBS symptoms, bloating, stomach pain, diarrhoea, constipation, nausea, reflux and indigestion.
  • Acute and chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma, emphysema, bronchitis e.g. 
  • Recurrent infections & chronic inflammation with unknown cause.
