in Alternative Testing for Food Intolerance
& Substance Sensitivity
Allergy-Link’s aim is to establish any substance that may cause a burden or is ‘disagreeable’ and thus is likely to be a contributor to any 'adverse reaction' symptoms - specific and non-specific.
From the onset the aim was to develop a comprehensive test that combines testing for Intolerance, 'Allergy' and Substance Sensitivity in one test. The tests provide a current picture of specific foods, non-foods and environmental substances - potential allergens - which may cause reactions or indicate that a food or substance poses some form of 'stress' to the body.
The term 'allergy’ as utilized by Allergy-Link, refers to the generic term commonly used by the general public describing any form of adverse or negative reaction - a potential 'link to allergy'. We use the wording 'Adverse Reaction', 'Allergy', 'Intolerance' and 'Substance Sensitivity' interchangeably also with allergy-like reaction, sensitivity or energy toxin.
However, only a minority of people are affected by medical classed allergies - app. 5% of adults and app. 12% of children. True allergies are signified by an IgE mediated immune response and usually cause immediate reactions and in serious cases can cause life threatening anaphylactic shock.
Most people experience intolerances or substance sensitivities; while many people with digestive 'discomfort' would experience 'food related symptoms'. Intolerances and Substance Sensitivity - are associated with many common diseases; and can be either a contributing factor - minor or major, a temporary or chronic condition or even the primary cause of ill health.
'Allergy Testing' as such has been claimed by the medical profession as their domain alone to establish true Type 1 IgE mediated allergies.
We had to remove any claims of 'Allergy Testing'. As recently a NHS doctor has claimed that Allergy Link needs to remove all claims made with regards to ‘Allergy’ Testing, or he would escalate a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority. However, Allergy testing is not a standard procedure within the NHS. It is rather grossly neglected, leaving many patients with severe allergic reactions and anaphylactic shock without follow-up appointments for testing; and if so they are put on a 12+ months waiting list. While alternative testing is being criticized as unreliable and non-validated, the NHS fails to deliver allergy testing for sufferers at large.
We had to include 'People with probable allergy are urged to consult their GP, with immediate reactions, hives, itchy rash or swelling. Any person suffering an immediate IgE mediated reaction to a specific food should consult a medical practitioner to discuss avoidance, testing for type 1 (IgE mediated) allergy, risk assessment for anaphylaxis and emergency medication'.
Instead of squabbling over competence, we would welcome cooperation in helping people.
We Offer Comprehensive Holistic Testing
12 common Foods causing Adverse Reactions & Intolerances
These 12 foods make up app. 85% of all food related reactions:
- Milk & Dairy
- Wheat / Gluten
- Fish & Shellfish
- Tree Nuts
- Corn / sweet corn
However, any substance can become a trigger causing adverse reactions at any time and can develop at any age. Most often are reactions delayed and take many days, months or even years before they manifest and take form such as: skin problems, respiratory problems and tiredness / lethargy, Irritable bowel (IBS).
How is the test carried out?
Our unique test method, employs a standardised test-protocol for detecting adverse reactions, Intolerances & substance sensitivities; and is influenced by the pioneering work from NAET® ‘Nambudripads Allergy Elimination Techniques and Allergy Antidote™.
Based on Vibrational Medicine, the test is established through a 'biofeedback' method called Radiesthesia. The refined testing procedure utilizes an information carrier - a hair sample - which contains the energy imprint or frequencies of a person.
We like to stress that the testing Allergy-Link provides is not medically approved. Allergy-Link is an independent alternative specialist, working in conjunction with complimentary and alternative medicine practitioners. Alternative testing procedures as such are not subject of scientific research and therefore not 'yet' recognized by conventional medicine.
