Why test for Allergens?

•We provide Ige testing for both enviornmental and food allergens to reveal the reactions that occur immediately after eating offending foods such as tree nuts or shell fish or the reactions that occur when in contact with specific environmental allergens such as mold, dust mite, or specific trees.

•Discovering delayed food reactions (IgG & IgA) and avoiding those foods for a period of time can often subside the suffering accompanying allergen reaction.

•Chronic food reactions stress the immune system with accompanying vulnerability to infections and disease.

•Multiple food sensitivities can be indicators of the health and integrity of the GI tract.

•Testing for BOTH IgG & IgA delayed food reactions tests in 2 separate compartments. IgA reactions involve mucous membranes whereas IgG reactions involve the blood. Often, IgA reactions can eventually lead to IgG reactions.
