Allergy Testing at Care Cure Acupuncture Galway City, Loughrea, Tuam, Dun Laoghaire & Longford

An allergy intolerance is an acute sensitivity to an otherwise harmless substance, which the immune system confuses with a dangerous infection thereby releasing a surge of histamine, which causes allergic symptoms.


At Care Cure we conduct an extensive intolerance test, which measures the sensitivity of up to 110 food items, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, food additives, colouring and preservatives. In addition to this the test also checks for dust mites, pollen and animal hair. 

We conduct the test by taking a strand of hair, which contains your DNA and it makes no difference to the results if you dye your hair or not. Next the hair is posted to our labs for a complete analysis and the results are sent back to us within 5-10 working days. At this stage we will give the person a call and discuss results over the phone or ask them to come in and talk to us. Results can be emailed or posted depending on preference.

The results are colour coded with red being the most dangerous high intolerance (to be avoided for 6 months to 12 months), orange being medium intolerance (to be avoided for 3-6 months) and yellow being a slight intolerance (to be avoided for up to 3 months or if necessary the substance can be taken in small does twice or three times a week). Green is the colour code depicting vitamins, minerals and substitutes that are lacking in the diet.

Substitution can be difficult for items such as wheat and dairy. To make it easier for you to avoid intolerances we have added on a free service where you can ask to be called by our nutrition expert who will explain in detail what substitutes are available and make out individual lists of substitute foods.

Test costs €60 and are conducted in the clinic. We also require the customer to fill in a form on the day.

We also offer free Consultations in the clinic if you feel there is a more serious problem. These are conducted using tongue and pulse diagnosis and can highlight underlining digestion, respiratory, skin and stomach issues.
