In brief: Buyer be ware.

There are many practitioners out there that are doing things that they call allergy testing that don't have any basis in science or reality.
Be sure you see a board certified allergist for evaluation for allergy to be sure you are getting the best possible care!

I agree with the above. Right now, it seems that every Tom, Dick and Harry offers allergy care and treatment -- and this is not limited to physicians. Be very careful about those who offer any medical therapy but have little if any training.

It often appears that the term "natural" means "non-scientific" or "of no proven benefit". Snake oil salesmen still abound, and for every one there are tons of gullible customers.

In brief: No

There is no scientific evidence that naturopathic allergy testing is valid.
Igg food testing has no value what so ever. The suggestions that igg causes food allergy is not true. Furthermore, with regards to food allergy it is the history which should elucidate the cause of the allergy with appropriate testing to support the history.

In brief: Seriously?

Holistic and naturopath doctors aren't real doctors.
Doctors go they years of rigorous training based on scientific method. This means if something can't be reproduced with research it is rejected. There is no such standard for holistic/naturopaths. ". Why would you listen to them ? Be careful and watch your wallet. They are usually trying to sell you something

IgE antibody is related to allergy. IgG antibody is made in response to any exposure and does not cause allergy symptoms, it merely proves exposure.
