Food allergies and food sensitivities are abnormal responses to a food component triggered by the immune system in the form of immunoglobulins (IgE, IgG, IgA), representing either an immediate or delayed response.
Specific IgE food panels include the major food allergens known to be responsible for immediate-type reactions and are grouped for adult, basic or comprehensive panels. Individual specific IgE foods can be ordered from the lab’s inventory of over 100 different foods as needed.
Specific IgG, IgA ELISA food panels are arranged in comprehensive panels of 96 foods consumed in the typical western diet or 184 foods, many of the substitute foods typically found in rotation/elimination diets.
Yeast and intestinal immunity panels are used to help identify the cause of patients suffering from the effects of gut dysbiosis, a disturbance of the gut microbiome. Microbial dysregulation within the gut is an important contributing factor in a wide range of disorders. Food sensitivities, environmental toxins, stress, prolonged use of antibiotics and genetic predisposition may contribute to gut dysbiosis.
Environmental IgE & IgG Allergy Tests and Panels include airborne pollens from grasses, trees, and weeds; animal danders, molds, dust mites, and occupational allergens.
Once the test results are in, we will call you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rory, who will thoroughly review your Food & Mold results with you and make concise recommendations based on his findings. Dr. Rory makes dietary, lifestyle, and supplement recommendations based on these test results.
