Allergy & Intolerance Testing

Allergies & Intolerances may impact your health overall.

Testing is recommended annually from birth for children add bi annually for adults. More frequent testing maybe recommended if you have a particular health concern that is being measured & monitored.

Once I am tested for allergies or intolerances do I just need to avoid these things to feel better?

Working with allergies or intolerances is two teared.  One detection and two healing.

Allergy or intolerance testing is step one in your path to wellness.  Once the food or environmental reactions are determined it is important to have a health plan to understand the source of why these reactions developed and an approach to healing those mechanisms.

When one is under stress either consciously or unconsciously the body reacts by overproducing stress hormones from the sympathetic nervous system , while under producing digestive enzymes from the parasympathetic nervous system.  This leads to irritation at the bowl lining , a reduction of good bacteria and potentially many digestive concerns including leaky bowl syndrome , which amplifies many secondary health concerns including: increasing the total number of items a person is allergic or sensitive to , fibromyalgia, attention deficit, fatigue, headaches and hormone imbalances leading to increased weight.

Will I always react to these items?

When phase two is introduced as the healing portion of your plan after a new patient visit, many food or environmental reactions are reduced or eliminated.

What is a Food Intolerance Test? And what conditions can it help?

A Food Intolerance Test helps to determine if there are any foods that you are eating that are acting like a stress to the body and thus are not being digested and absorbed and potentially contributing to your health concerns. It is different than a food allergy in that it does not follow the immunoglobulin E pathway as an allergy , yet does impact the body generally in the area of genetic predisposition.

What is the difference between Allergy IgE and IgG Testing and Food Intolerances?

“Allergies” can follow two pathways either an Immunoglobulin E ( IgE) response which is an immediate reaction or an Immunoglobulin G ( IgG) response which is a delayed response. In an allergic reaction the mast cells in the immune system then release histamine to produce traditional allergy symptoms.  The traditional allergy symptoms include:  hives, swelling, itching eyes, running nose, headaches, sinus symptoms and maybe life threatening.  revIvelife ™Allergy Testing is done via blood and tests for both IgE and IgG reactions and is suited for those with allergy type symptoms.

Sensitivities do not follow the histamine pathway yet impact the body in a negative way.  The symptoms of sensitivities maybe varied and tend to impact an individual where their genetic weaknesses are.  For example one person sensitive to tomatoes may get a headache while another may have arthritc pain.  Sensitivity or Intolerance Testing at Revivelife is indicated for those with generalized health concerns.

How is the revIvelife™ life allergy testing different than what is done by a traditional allergist MD?

Your Medical Doctor may refer you to an allergist to assess potential allergens.  He/she will use one of the skin testing methods to determine allergic responses.  The advantages is that you will have information about the most severe allergic reactions.  The disadvantages is that the less severe allergic reactions or sensitivities may be missed.

The most comprehensive approach to food & environmental reactions would be to overlap sensitivity results with allergy results.
