Yeah, that is what I was thinking too but I didn't know if the naturopaths had a way around that. But I guess not :(
I asked my daugthers ENT about
this and he said he wasn't sure if the immune suppressor would mess up an allergy test and told me to talk to my GI. My GI says no, it wouldn't but then I told him about
the RAST in which showed I had no allergies to hazelnuts and strawberries when in fact I break out in hives when I eat strawberries. Also the RAST showed no environmental allergies but yet I sneeze like crazy when I'm outside with the pollen and stuff.
I can't go off the immune suppressor even for a short time for allergy testing. So in the meantime, I am suffering from these darn allergies that they're driving me insane.

I tried several naturopaths for my allergies and asthma and always came home with a box of supplements which after a week or so made my condition worse. I am a total fan of NAET for identifying and eliminating allergies. I have used it for over a year and it works. For more information go to NAET.com or the Ben Roy Baker face book page. Be Well.

I saw a naturopath in New Hampshire a few years back, and she did help me a lot with several ailments. They may do some tests, mostly blood work, but the biggest thing will be their diet recommendations for you. At least, that has been my experience. Don't be surprised if they take you off gluten, dairy, and soy. Or, at least, gluten and soy and a recommendation to only consume raw dairy products.
They will mostly likely prescribe probiotics for you as well, and I highly recommend taking them.
Also, there are anti-histamines that are homeopathic that contain quercitin. Have you tried this? I never have, but the naturopath I saw a few years back recommended it. She also told me to eat as much onion and garlic as possible, as they are natural sources for quercitin - a naturally occurring anti-histamine. Yes, it's possible your breath will be....interesting....but I did it, and I found it helped a bit.
