Food allergies are a HOT topic in the medical world right now. I just saw a sign at my gym advertising food allergy testing this morning!
They are common, and commonly misunderstood by doctors as well as patients. So be sure you know what you are testing and what information it will give you before you buy an expensive testing kit. (We do not mark lab testing up in price, we extend the cost price to you.)
The food allergy testing we do is through ELISA/ACT. ELISA/ACT labs, founded by Russell Jaffre, MC, PHD, CCN, is the most accurate food allergy test on the market to date. This test is the only test on the market that tests the delayed reaction an allergen, up to THREE days delayed.
It analyzes the body’s reactive antibodies to IgA, IgM, and IgG. Most tests only test for ONE of the THREE antibody reactions, making this the most accurate and thorough test available.
