I had my hair tested for allergies. Is this an acceptable diagnosis?
Measurement of food specific IgG antibodies, hair-analysis, cytotoxic tests, kinesiology, iridology, and electrodermal testing are a number of alternative methods of diagnosis. None of these test have been proven to be accurate in diagnosing allergies, hence clinicians cannot recommend the use of them in diagnosing allergies.
