There is such an incredible number of allergens that they are almost unlimited, they may be drug-induced, from pollen and moulds, animal fur, dandruff, bacteria, foods, smoke or pollution, the list goes on.

Specific treatment can then be prescribed by our experienced team to remove the symptoms you are experiencing and improve your health naturally.
Allergy testing will be carried out by our natural health practitioners. The test could involve a blood test, urine sample, skin prick, or a saliva swab. The method will depend on your symptoms and your practitioner’s individual analysis.
