Allergies & Inflammation Testing
Overview of Allergies & Inflammation Testing
Allergies are triggered by a variety of things and allergens can be found on any surface. Do you suffer from seasonal symptoms? To begin to understand allergies, it is important to have knowledge of what their fundamental cause is.
Through a simple blood test by a prick of the fingers, we can identify food and environmental allergies that may be causing symptoms such as pain, inflammation, or lethargy. We also offer another form of test that is conducted on the arm through a series of little pokes. This testing is designed to measure inflammation that might develop from various sources.
The AIH Integrated Approach
Once we identify which food or environmental factors are affecting your body, we can begin creating an effective course of action. We then lay out a plan on how to deter negative outcomes.
With food, it is rather simple. For example, if chocolate is found to be a source of inflammation in your body, we will advise you to stay away from eating chocolate. At the very least limit your intake of chocolate so that your body is less likely to negatively react to it.
With environmental sources, we go about the process differently. We offer immunotherapy based off of your serum response. This will allow you to build up your immunity to handle the particular environmental factor that is affecting you negatively. Over time your body will be able to better handle the sensitivity to said factor.
Benefits of Allergies and Inflammation Testing
The biggest benefit of these services is awareness and identification. Once you are aware of these sensitivities to certain things that you may not have realized were hidden under the surface, you will better understand how to manage your reactions to them. As well as this, you can expedite your healing process by identifying problems that may have been hindering your recovery without you even being aware of them.
