Getting a sensitivity test, via hair samples, and allergen tested via a blood test can definitely help guide a person in assisting in their symptoms.
I am not sure of the validity of the hair test, and plan on doing another test soon to see what comes up... but, I stopped one of the triggers I was highly sensitive to, and lower left Sharp postin 2is virtually gone and (while working to do an entire elimination of all of them) my belly pain and bloating has improved.
I believe I am on the right track.
