There are other tests available that, it is claimed, can identify allergies and other sensitivities. These include the cytotoxic test, in which white blood cells are exposed to allergens. This has been shown to be a valid test, but accurate only in up to 70 per cent of cases. Until its accuracy can be improved, it may mislead you dangerously.

Hair analysis is inaccurate in diagnosing allergies and sensitivity and has little value. Other diagnostic tests available often involve measuring energy flow or electro-magnetic fields, such as dowsing, Vegatest electrical devices, or energy boxes. Applied kinesiology is based on measuring muscle strength. Such tests are often attractive as a means of diagnosing allergy or sensitivity, in that they are relatively quick and easy and it is tempting to think that they can do no harm, but they can do harm in that they are often inaccurate.

People whose allergies have already been identified and who know what they react to, report that they get different or varying results from such methods and that they do not find them reliable. So, if you use any of these methods, keep an open mind, use them to corroborate your own detection work, but do not allow them to send you off on wild goose chases.
