DO YOU THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE ALLERGIES OR INTOLERANCES?
Food and environmental sensitivities are the cause (or part cause) of many common health problems, and these can be identified and remedied by allergy testing and treatment. Conditions include hay fever, eczema and asthma; also fatigue, weight gain and IBS, and many more.
THE 'BIGGER PICTURE'
During your consultation we will discuss your health and wellbeing in some depth. Many people with allergies have underlying issues which predispose them to react to things in an allergic way. Together we will consider your diet and eating habits, home and work environments, the impact of common toxins, lifestyle and stress factors, and so on.
The 'big picture' for you will provide the context for evaluating the results of your allergy test, and for the treatment and advice you'll receive.
TESTING METHODS AND TREATMENTS
You will be tested for a range of allergies. The method used is Diagnostic Kinesiology (sometimes referred to as ‘muscle testing’), a safe and non-invasive approach which is both accurate and versatile. It is ideal for children, including babies, as well as adults.
Additionally, if it looks like there are significant food sensitivities, a Diagnostic Elimination Diet is usually recommended. This takes the diagnostic process one step further and helps to confirm the results of kinesiology testing.
Laboratory Tests are also available (at additional cost), but these are only required in exceptional circumstances. They include blood and stool tests to further evaluate immune response and gut health.
Used individually or in combination, the above tests will provide an accurate picture of your allergy status.
The aim of testing and treatment is twofold: firstly, to reduce the toxic load in your body; and secondly, to strengthen your immune response to offending allergens. Health is restored (as required) by means of detoxification, attention to diet and to gut health, allergy desensitisation, and nutritional medicines.

My Clients Say ...
"Dear Robin, I came to see you on August 12th and you identified various foods and substances that I am sensitive to. Although I was a bit sceptical I followed your advice and made a few changes to the way I eat. I was surprised and delighted to find that I very quickly felt a great deal better. I am very pleased that I came to see you and am grateful for your excellent advice."
"I consulted you last Spring (2019) with extreme hay fever reaction. I did exactly as I was told and saw limited improvement during last year; this year has been a totally different experience, since my hay fever is massively less aggressive than in the past. Thank you for your help in that!"
"I'm just writing to thank you for the consultation on the 25th and to let you know I'm doing ok. I had a headache for about a week but that has now gone. The best thing is that the catarrh has reduced and I haven't had the drumming in the ears for over a week. I've followed all of your advice, and thank you again, it was an extremely helpful and enlightening experience."
"How fortunate we are in Eastbourne to have this gem of a clinic that offers a wide range of natural therapies and treatments."
