Food & Environmental Allergy Testing
80% of the immune system is in the gut, which is the largest area of contact with the environment. For our protection, it distinguishes around the clock between "harmless" and "harmful". Many of our daily aches and pains can be directly associated with food and chemical sensitivities. These conditions may include;
- Gut (IBS, diarrhea/constipation/bloating, gastritis, reflux, Chron's Disease, etc.)
- Metabolism (obesity, diabetes, healthy weight loss, thyroid illness)
- Skin (eczema, psoriasis, rashes, urticaria, etc.)
- Joints (rheumatoid arthritis, muscle pains)
- Respiratory (chronic cough, asthma, sinusitis)
- Neurological (migraines, chronic fatigue, ADD, etc.)
Here at Vitality Healthcare, we help you figure out the foods and environmental factors such as inhalant allergies and chemical sensitivities that are impacting your health and wellness through ALCAT/IgG Food Allergy Testing and Applied Kinesiology.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a form of diagnosis using muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning. AK is a very precise, specific and non-invasive method of testing, analyzing, and correcting nutritional deficiencies and imbalances in the body. The analysis begins with muscle testing utilizing the body’s neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. Each of the tested points relates to a specific organ or function within the body (as derived in ancient Chinese medicine). Because the anatomical structure of the human body has not changed significantly in thousands of years, we are able to continue to accurately rely on the behavior of our reflexes and nervous system, therefore making imbalances and weaknesses easily identifiable through this method of testing. During the testing the practitioner is also looking for specific stressors such as food sensitivities, immune challenges, scars, metal, and chemicals. If present in your body these stressors may be preventing your body from healing.
