Food Allergy Test
BLOOD SPOT / HOME KIT ($280)
It is estimated that up to 12 million Americans have food allergies or food sensitivities. A food sensitivity is an inflammatory response of the immune system to a food trigger or allergen. Sometimes the symptoms are almost immediate and this makes cause and effect easily discernible.
You will receive results in about 10 days and we”ll schedule consultation with Dr.T. to discuss results.
She will recommend to best food to EAT or NOT to EAT or use food cycling or elimination if needed.
We use Meridian Laboratory, a world leader in food and allergy / sensitivity testing.
The Lab measures food-specific IgG4 antibodies using the ELISA method for the assessment of delayed food allergies.
Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is the most abundant antibody. There are 4 subclasses of the IgG antibody family. IgG4 has a very high affinity or attraction to allergens, unlike the other subclasses. This makes IgG4, rather than total IgG, ideal for assessing chronic food sensitivities.
