Allergies

Unlock allergies, prevent exposure and reduce inflammation

We offer testing for hundreds of food and inhaled allergens, as well as for immunologic reactions in your body. Allergies can lead to acute and chronic inflammatory reactions in your body, so it is critical to have intolerances tested as early as possible. Food sensitivity is often a commonly overlooked cause of chronic inflammation.

We run various tests to accurately diagnose what is triggering your particular reactions. Besides acute reactions, allergies and food insensitivities can also cause symptoms like migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders.

At Neo-Health we are dedicated to finding the cause of your allergies and, through elimination, we can help reduce your body's inflammatory reactions .

The tests we offer include:

  • The ALCAT Test
  • GHP2,the Acute and Chronic Food Allergy tests
  • ELISA test (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay)

ALCAT

The ALCAT Test is a lab-based immune stimulation test. Your white blood count is challenged with various substances, including foods, additives, colourings, chemicals, medicinal herbs, functional foods, molds and pharmaceutical compounds, and your unique set of responses help to identify substances that may trigger potentially harmful immune system reactions.

The ALCAT Test results provide classification feedback which may help to design an effective diet to eliminate the specific triggers of chronic immune system activation. By reducing this ongoing burden - and in particular, by reversing the sustained and destructive inflammation it produces - normal body functions and immune system balance can be improved.

GHP2 The Acute and Chronic Food Allergy tests

Using a small blood sample, the test assesses your immune system's response to 96 foods. The actual levels of IgE and IgG antibodies against these individual allergens can be precisely measured. The allergy test will help you discover with ease what you need to avoid or what you can include in your diet to minimise allergic reactions and strengthen your immune system.

ELISA test

ELISA (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay) is a term describing the biochemical process whereby the antibodies are detected in your blood. The ELISA Food Allergy Test measures IgE and IgG antibodies (immediate and delayed food allergies) to discover the influences of foods on the body to which you are allergic.

In a normal healthy person, or in someone with no food allergies, no antibodies will be detected. However, in a high percentage of people with chronic health problems, this test reveals elevated antibodies to a specific food or foods. The ELISA test will tell someone with an allergy what he/she is allergic to after detection of a raised antibody level. We would then target and remove the food which triggers the allergy and prescribe the right treatment for any deficiencies.
