About Allergy LinkAllergyLink is an independent Alternative Allergy Specialist - Established since 2004
Allergy Link is specialised in Allergy & Intolerance Testing by post since 2004 andhas provided 25,000 tests throughout the UK, Europe, Scandinavia and Japan.AllergyLink's unique approach and testing procedure has helped many people tomake informed decision and manage their allergy related symptoms.
The Testing Service is used by individuals suffering from allergies and intolerancesand also by many professionals, practitioners and clinics around the world.
Allergy Link aims to deliver high quality service offering an alternative, pain-freeand affordable allergy testing service by post, presenting a solution that doesn’tcompromise on quality.
Allergy Link was founded to meet the growing needs and demands of peopleaffected - experiencing intolerances, allergic reactions and related health problems.The rise in awareness that the foods we eat and the substances we are exposed to,actually do play a role in our overall health, lead to the rise in the demand fortesting. Many of our clients have expressed their dissatisfaction that doctors havedismissed the possible link to foods as cause or contributing factor of theirsymptoms.
Conventional allergy testing does not recognise intolerances, or any other allergy-like reactions such as sensitivities or energy toxins. Allergy testing is not yet astandard procedure within the NHS, as the margins of a ‘true allergy’ are set tightlyby the medical profession. But some medical doctors are becoming slowlyeducated, that there are other solutions, one of whom is Dr. Mehmet Oz who said:‘’The next big frontier in Medicine is Energy Medicine’’. Which Chinese Medicine hasestablished already thousands of years ago.
Allergy Link adopts an ‘Vibrational or Energy Medicine’ approach to Allergies,recognizing that a person can be affected by substances in various ways. Our
specialism is influenced by the pioneering work from NAET®- ‘NambudripadsAllergy Elimination Techniques’ and Allergy Antidote™, two energy medicinetechniques that detect, and treat both ‘allergies’ and substance sensitivities.

MMaayy bbee iitt iiss aann AAlllleerrggyy
Allergies are increasing progressively. Allergy is the description commonly used todescribe adverse reactions and abnormal responses to a food, drug or somethingin our environment, which usually does not cause symptoms in most people. Asensitive person may react to even minor quantities.
The word ‘Allergy’ has become interchangeable with ‘intolerance, sensitivity,hypersensitivity, substance sensitivity, energy toxins and allergy like reaction’;essentially representing anything that weakens our body’s immune or energysystem.
Besides the known traditional allergic problems, any undiagnosed, vague oruntreatable symptom can be from an immune system reaction. Allergies are oftenfound to be an underlying cause or contributing part of the problem.
Any symptom can be caused by a substance reaction - and in turn - anysubstance can become an ‘allergen’ and trigger or cause reactions. Foods andenvironmental substances are also known to worsen symptoms or conditions.
The body’s ability to cope with everything we eat or are exposed to is dependanton many individual factors. Often it is the accumulation or ‘rain barrel’ effect thatreactions all of a sudden develop or break out. One of the main contributingcauses in the rise of allergic reactions is ‘stress’ and ‘over exposure’, also to toomany artificial, synthetic or ‘hazardous’ substances and the increase ofelectromagnetic radiation.
There are many reasons for the increase in food and environmental sensitivities.The most obvious reason is that we are being exposed daily to more and morechemicals and substances that our bodies were never exposed to during ourevolution.
Today we are inhaling and ingesting chemicals on a daily basis, whose names wecan’t even pronounce, yet assume our bodies will be able to determine if they arehealthy for us.

There is much misunderstanding about these two terms and they are frequentlyconfused. Many people speak of Food Allergy when what they describe is likely tobe Food Intolerance.
FFoooodd AAlllleerrggiieess are an autoimmune response caused by the body ‘misreading’ afood protein as an enemy or toxic substance. An Allergy is a rather fast responseby the body’s immune system to a perceived invader.
Signs or symptoms are typically immediate, dramatic andvisible: coughing, sneezing, vomiting, migraines, wateringeyes, rashes, swelling tissue, hives – or in severe cases ananaphylactic shock which requires emergencyintervention.However other symptoms like the gastro-intestinal
responses nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea can be delayed for hours or even days.
FFoooodd IInnttoolleerraannccee on the other hand is an inability to process a particular food. Itis also thought to be an immune system response. The gastro-intestinal tract insome people is simply unable to produce appropriate enzymes for normal chemicalbreakdown. The food passes through unprocessed, or lingers in the gut fermentingproducing excess ‘gas’.
AAlllleerrggyy--lliikkee rreeaaccttiioonnss take the form of both physical and emotional symptoms.These reactions can be responsible for a myriad of symptoms including A.D.D.,anxiety, depression, arthritis, respiratory problems, digestive problems, chronicfatigue, brain fog and panic attacks.

In severecases an anaphylactic response causes tissues to swell up to twoor three times their normal size, swelling up so rapidly that theyobstruct breathing. The allergy sufferer gasps for air and cansuffocate and die if not given emergency treatment by EPI-penadministration of adrenalin.

Reactions are experienced differently by every person; ranging from temporarysensitivities, intolerances, to severe allergic reactions, or life threateninganaphylactic shock (anaphylaxis).
Very often there are more than one allergen involved in causing reactions such as -itching, swelling, sneezing, wheezing, and various other symptoms. It is primarilythe immune system, that is affected or weakened, and may react or give rise to avast number of complaints.
TTeellll ttaallee ssiiggnnss of an allergy especially in children are:
dark circles under eyes, swollen or red around eyes,red ears and cheeks, itchy nose /ears / eyes,behavioural or mood changes like ‘sudden’ irritability,hyperactivity or withdrawal symptoms, changes inhandwriting / drawing.

AllergyLink's unique test method, employs a standardised test-protocol fordetecting allergies, Intolerances & substance sensitivities; and is influenced by thepioneering work from NAET® (Nambudripads Allergy Elimination Techniques’)andAllergy Antidote™.
Based on Vibrational Medicine, the test is established through a 'biofeedback'method called Radiesthesia. The refined testing procedure utilizes an informationcarrier, like a hair sample, which contains the energy imprint or frequencies of aperson.
The accuracy of the Allergy & Intolerance Test is in our experience as high as85% - 99.9%. The result of the test is given as a colour coded report - showing aclear table of food and non-food items.
