ALLERGY/ INTOLERANCE TESTING / IMMUNOLOGY TESTING
We provide a variety of allergy and intolerance / sensitivity testing at our naturopathic clinic from a variety of laboratories such as Genova, Alcat and other labs that we trust and we are pleased to offer the state of the art testing with highly accurate and sensitive tests using blood samples.
We offer an array of allergy / intolerance and immunology tests that include and are not limited to:
The newest allergy profile available measures quantifiable IgE antibodies for Molds. As the modern world continues to evolve, it is becoming increasingly apparent that our indoor environment can have a huge impact on our health.
Molds (also know as fungi) are ubiquitous in the environment and can concentrate in homes, offices and public buildings. It is estimated that the annual work impairment costs associated with pollen / mold exposure are between $5.4 - 7.7 billion dollars in the US alone!

Call us if you would like to see the various lists of allergens and intolerances we can test you for.
Do you think you may be Celiac Disease? Clinical studies indicate the Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase IgA / IgG and Endomysial IgA antibodies as highly prevalent and reliable for non-invasive assessment of
Celiac Disease. We offer a celiac testing profile that includes Total IgA to rule out false negatives in IgA immunodeficient individuals, and the Endomysial IgA as a reflex when indicated.
Anti-GLiadin IgA and IgG is available to establish levels and use as a monitoring tool for successful elimination of gluten.
