When your body encounters an allergen, your immune system over-reacts and produces antibodies. These antibodies can be IgE (immediate) or IgG (delayed).
The more times you are exposed to an allergen, a chain of reactions occurs in your immune system. The most important of these is the release of a chemical in your body called histamine. Histamine can be present in the nose, sinuses, ears, and throat. It is the production of histamine that produces your allergic symptoms.
Environmental or Inhalant: trees, pollen, grass, weeds, cat, dog, mites, cockroach, molds and yeast including Candida, additives, coloring’s, and chemicals. INHALANT ALLERGENS: Over 40 million Americans are living with inhalant allergies. Unfortunately, allergens sufficient to cause a reaction can be found extensively in the environment. Prominent grasses, trees, weeds, including ragweed, plus indoor and outdoor molds have the potential to cause an allergic response. Some allergic reactions may be seasonal. For example, pollen travels the most easily in hot, dry, windy weather, so these conditions can worsen your allergy symptoms. Dust mites, pets and cockroaches are some of the most common indoor allergy triggers.
Tree Pollen: Oak (Fagaceae); Birch, Alder (Betulaceae), Box Elder, Maple (Aceraceae); Cottonwood, Poplar, Willow (Salicaceae); Ash, Olive, (Oleaceae); Sycamore (Plantanus); Walnut (Juglans); Mulberry (Morus); Cedar, Cypress, Juniper (Cupressaceae); Pecan, Hickory (Carya); Elm (Ulmaceae)
Grass Pollen: Rye, Timothy, Meadow fescue, Orchard, Kentucky (June) Blue (Fesctucoidea); Bermuda (Eragrostoideae); Johnson, Bahia (Panicoideae)
Weed Pollen: Ragweed (Ambrosia); English Plantain (Plantanus); Sage aka Common Mugwort (Artemesia); Lambs quarters, Russian thistle, Burning bush, Wingscale (Chenopodium); Sheep sorrel (Rumex); Pigweed, Carelessweed (Amanaranthus)
Indoor Aeroallergens: Cat; Dog; Mites (Dermatophagoides farinae, Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus); Cockroach
Molds: Alternaria; Aspergillus; Cladosporium; Epicoccum; Fusarium; Helminthosporium; Mucor; Penicillium; Phoma; Rhizopus
CANDIDA BLOOD TEST IgG, IgA, IgM: Candida overgrowth is the most common cause of systemic fungal infection and accounts for 80% of all major systemic fungal infections. Mild, chronic and polysystemic candidiasis can be positively identified through high serum levels of IgG, IgA and IgM antibodies against Candida antigens. Test results include an interpretation and positive results are accompanied by The Candida Diet.
ADDITIVES, COLORING’S, CHEMICALS (IgE, IgG): Chemical sensitivity is a chronic condition affecting different parts of the body and usually occurs in response to a chemical exposure. Chemical sensitivities appear to develop in people who are prone to other types of allergy. They may have a history of asthma, eczema, or hay fever in the past, or genetic predisposition.
Items Tested: Ammonium Persulfate, Benzoic Acid, Cochenille Red, Formaldehyde, Glutamic Acid, Orris Root, Phenol, Protease 1, Quinoline Yellow #10, Saccharin, Tartrazine #5, Toluene
COMPREHENSIVE MOLD / YEAST IgE IgG: Yeast and mold belong to the Fungi family. Fungi are living cells that contain protein that can cause allergies or sensitivities. Fungi, in the air we breathe or the food we eat, constantly surround us. Mold allergy and sensitivity is more prevalent due to our environment and other toxic exposures. People who suffer from allergies may be more sensitive to mold. Other susceptible populations may include asthmatics, children and infants, the elderly, or individuals with existing respiratory conditions or weakened immune systems. One symptom of a yeast allergy is fatigue. Other symptoms are swelling, joint pain, skin eruptions, dizziness, breathing challenges.
Items Tested: Penicillium, Cladosporium, Aspergillus, Mucor, Candida, Alternaria, Helminthosporium, Fusarium, Stemphylium, Rhizopus, Aureobasidium, Phoma, Epicoccum, Cephalosporium, Stachybotrys
