Allergies – Food

We have partnered with ImmunoLabs, Inc. and ALCAT for the most comprehensive testing for food allergies and sensitivities.  All that’s needed is a small blood sample.

ImmunoLabs, Inc. provides an individualized, color-coded computer printout that identifies and assists you in eliminating foods you are allergic to as well as a plan to decrease food sensitivities.

ALCAT testing measures personalized nutrition at the cellular level to measure your body’s response to a wide array of substances including foods, food additives and colorings, molds and environmental chemicals.  The ALCAT is NOT an “allergy” or IgE test.  It is the most effective and comprehensive sensitivity/intolerance test available.

A comprehensive discussion with our resident allergy expert, Mark Swircenski, PA-C will allow him to determine which test is the best fit for you.

NOTE:  Billing for these tests is between the patient and the company.  AFWC does not handle billing for these out-of-state lab tests.  Payment method must be included in the package with your sample when it is sent via overnight courier.

Experiencing Any of These Symptoms?

Food sensitivities can cause a variety of chronic symptoms which you would never think could be linked to foods.  The following health problems and others may be alleviated when you identify and eliminate reactive foods.

  • Weight gain
  • Joint pains
  • Sinus problems
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Skin rashes
  • Indigestion
  • Achy muscles
  • Fluid retention

Am I Allergic or Sensitive?

Food allergies are a strong, immediate reaction to foods and other substances.  Food sensitivities are delayed reactions which can occur anywhere from a few hours to a few days after exposure to the reactive food.  As such, they can be difficult to detect without sophisticated scientific testing.

What Causes Food Sensitivities?

Medical evidence suggests that food sensitivities result when foods and their protein components are not completely digested.  When these components are absorbed by your body, your immune system does not recognize them as nutritional and beneficial.  It responds protectively by producing antibodies, starting a series of reactions which can affect many tissues and organs.  The result can be any of the symptoms already mentioned, headaches, skin rashes, fatigue and more.

How Do I Know if I Have Food Sensitivities?

Of the hundreds of thousands of people ImmunoLabs, Inc. has tested so far, almost all had food sensitivities, so there is a good chance that you are also sensitive to one or more foods.  If you experience any of the symptoms previously described, you may wish to consider looking into food sensitivity testing.

How are Food Sensitivities Treated?

Food sensitivities are usually just temporary.  They typically disappear when you eliminate the reactive food for 60 to 90 days.  Most people can then reintroduce the foods back into their diet without recurrence of symptoms.  The most effective way of preventing food sensitivities from developing again is to rotate, combine and cook foods properly.  Your individual Immuno Bloodprint report provides all these preventative measures in an easy to follow format.
