Find the Cause. Stop Guessing. Start Testing.
AllergyFree has two convenient ways to test for what causes allergies. Needle-free skin testing can be performed quickly and accurately inside the medical practice in 15 minutes.
Blood testing for 88 food sensitivities requires a couple of vials of blood but can be drawn in most medical practices and sent to the AllergyFree laboratory.
There is never one single cause for allergic reactions, therefore, there is no single test that can be used to gather all of the information needed to get to the root of the problem. This is why AllergyFree offers three types of testing for a complete picture of your immune systems.
Like a detective uncovering clues and gathering evidence, AllergyFree uses different testing platforms to find all of the “clues” for your doctor to get the “best evidence” to reach the best course of action for your greatest outcome.
Needle-FreeIgE Skin Testing for Inhalants
Needles are needless! With AllergyFree, plastic applicators are used to apply a small amount of allergen extracts to the skin to trigger a histamine reaction for “active allergies.” Based on the skin reaction, we can quickly and easily identify exactly what inhalant allergens cause your allergies.
Skin testing looks for protein sensitivities you breathe in such as grass, weed and tree pollens, molds, fungi, animal dander, and “dust” that floats in the air (dust mites, cockroach, mice hair).
COMPREHENSIVE Blood Testing for Food
The AllergyFree Dietary Antigen Test is designed to show which commonly ingested foods are causing a response within your immune system. Foods with a moderate or high reaction are recommended to be reduced or eliminated from your diet. We offer the ultimate testing options for your practitioner to determine the best plan of treatment based on your individual responses.
IgE Food Allergy: Fast Response
The IgE antibody response is the most commonly known food allergy response. This response usually occurs immediately and can create severe symptoms such as swelling, hives, itching, and – in some cases – anaphylaxis. Even though IgE reactions are immediate, the allergic potential of food-based allergens can remain in your system 1-2 days after ingestion, extending the presence of symptoms during this duration. IgE reactions can be permanent or they may improve with the elimination diet and gut treatment. IgE reactions stimulate the release of histamine in the body.
IgG4: Blocking Agent to IgE
IgG4, which is a subclass of IgG, is a distinct antibody in the immune system. IgG4 total antibody is important in relation to IgE because this antibody acts as a blocking agent for an IgE reaction. When the IgG4 reaction is greater than the IgE reaction for a particular antigen, IgG4 blocks the IgE antibodies from binding to the receptor sites. It releases histamine and reduces severity of the symptoms associated with the IgE reaction. This is referred to as the blocking potential. IgG4 carries its own clinical relevance in high levels and may mediate several conditions and diseases.
IgG Food Sensitivity: Slow Response
The IgG antibody response creates sensitivity to a particular food. Symptoms may be less severe than with an IgE allergic reaction and can manifest anywhere from 3-72 hours after exposure. IgG reactions create inflammation that makes many pathologies worse. The delayed response makes sensitivities difficult to identify without a diagnostic test. Sensitivities get better with treatment and improved gut health.
C3d: Activator for Magnified Response to IgG
C3d is a complement antigen and an activator to our complement cascade system. Reaction to the specified food will worsen if C3d activation is present with IgG. The C3 protein attaches to the antigen and amplifies the IgG response, increasing the inflammatory potential of IgG titer.
Advanced Barrier Assessment
Imbalances in Zonulin, histamine, DAO and LPS are associated with intestinal permeability, often referred to as, “leaky gut.”
When the gut barrier is weakened, a person is more vulnerable to food antigens, toxins, and unfriendly microbes. A leaky gut tears down the body’s defenses and opens up the system to increased inflammation.
There are many possible causes of damage to the GI lining and subsequent leaky gut. Common causes of intestinal permeability are bacterial overgrowth, food sensitivities including gluten sensitivity, NSAIDs, and alcohol consumption.
Reducing inflammation and healing the GI lining can help restore the GI barrier and normalize Zonulin, DAO, histamine, and LPS.
AllergyFree diagnostic testing is compliant under FDA regulations. Our methods were created by top researchers to ensure compliance and results. AllergyFree testing is covered by most major health insurance companies.
Fast results. The answers you need.
No more waiting on allergy test results. With AllergyFree, patients get answers the same visit as the test. Our skin test takes only 15 minutes for a detailed analysis. The AllergyFree blood drops, when combined with the skin test, give the most thorough IgE test. The AllergyFree method provides easy to understand results for any medical specialist to provide.
