There are many benefits to knowing your exact allergies. It gives you the ability to develop a specific prevention plan, anticipate your allergy season, change your environment to eliminate harmful allergens as much as possible, and seek specific treatment.
At Care Cure, we test for allergies, intolerance and sensitivities for up to 110 food items, food additives, drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) colouring and preservatives. In addition to this our allergy test includes environmental (breath in) allergens, such as dust mites, pollen and animal hair, cosmetics and detergents.
The test will also make recommendations for supplements that you may benefit from.
The allergy testing can be done in our clinic or remote.
The whole processing is conducted by obtaining a strand of your hair and completing a basic form outlining potential symptoms.
