Q.

homeopath &  allergy test

My 1,5 year old son has been suffering from allergies and is on chronic allergy medicine.
I decided to try the alternative ant took him to homeopath who sent him for bioenergetic stress tests for his allergies.
I am however very sceptical and I am not convinced in the authenticity of such tests.
What is your opinion of them?
