“One man’s meat is another man’s poison” – Lucretius  95-55 BC

Robin Ravenhill is a qualified Allergy Therapist with over 18 years’ experience. He is registered with the British Institute for Allergy and Environmental Therapy. He does not just do allergy tests and leave people with the results. He values:

  • A holistic and in-depth approach to allergy and toxicity issues
  • Effective testing and treatment options
  • Clear and helpful explanations and advice – a way forwards

Below is a summary of what he does and what you can expect from a consultation:

Do you think you might have Allergies, Intolerances or Toxicity issues?

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 Robin and you 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 with Robin you 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 to reduce the toxic load in your body, and to strengthen your immune response to offending allergens. Health is restored (as required) by means of detoxification, attention to diet and to gut health, homeopathic allergy desensitisation, and nutritional medicines.
