    I bought this test online from them and loved it. I’m about to buy another for my nephew. This test was quite comprehensive for food allergies. My daughter had chronic eczema and once I removed grains and spinach from her diet, her symptoms cleared up quickly. Seller was responsive and the nutritionist on staff was extremely nice!

    Found out my son was intolerant to some foods we thought were healthy.

    Good stuff to know on top of his food allergies

    I bought this test for my 10-year-old daughter. I always had the feeling that she had an intolerance to dairy; when we got her test results back she had an intolerance to daily as a level 3 (mother knows best)! I was so happy with her test results that I purchased tests for the whole family!

    I found out about this company from my neighbor. I purchased it for my son who has always had stomach issues. When I got his test results back he had a high intolerance to apples which makes complete since because he eats them all the time for a snack. I called the office and spoke with Elaine who said that my son could be over consuming the apples, which could be the result of his intolerance to them. We have limited his intake of apples for about 6 weeks (suggested time) and hasnt had an upset stomach in weeks! Highly recommend!!

    A lot better than getting pricked at the doctors office. I got to test my son for food intolerances from the comfort of my home.

    Non invasive holistic approach is the future of medicine and this company is ahead of the curve. Thank you for helping me understand that the foods on this list I can not force me son to like for a reason.

    It literally took 10 strands of hair to find out life changing answers for my daughter. I used a clean brush to get the strands out. This company is great!

    I didn’t realize they had a deluxe test. I wish I had gotten the more extensive test for my son. It was really easy to take though. I pulled a few strands from my son’s head hair from the root and cut the rest.

    My son Jonah actually had fun with this and got involved with the testing process too. I am happy I got the test for him.

    My daughter asked for this test for her birthday because her acne had gotten bad. She was very diligent with taking the test and implementing her results. I’ve got to say, I am really impressed with how much her acne has cleared up after only about a week. I am probably going to buy this test for myself as well because now I am curious.

    This test has saved our lives as parents. Our son was constantly having issues. We changed up his diet, and have seen great improvements.

    Keep in mind they test “kids” for under 14. I almost bought the wrong test for mine. Great results!

    I’m so glad they test children, because my pediatrician would not test kids under 4. This has helped me figure out what is causing my son constant diarrhea. We have made some changes, and it was so worth the money.
