Allergy Testing.

Allergy testing provides a quick and easy way for Allgenic’s professionals to discover potential causes of allergic reactions and allergy-related diseases whether the allergies are airborne, skin based or food allergies. The test reports include reference ranges along with a suggested treatment plan. When compliance is high, patients report improvement in symptoms and elimination of long-standing health issues.

Testing Includes:

High quality, standardized antigens from licensed American manufactures. Very user-friendly results. Prompt and quick turnaround time. Automated laboratory processes that ensure efficiency from the time the sample is received to the time the result is reported. Consistent automation and tracking for the most accurate assay results. Individualized elimination treatments and rotation diet guidelines.

Skin and Airborne

An allergy skin test is used to identify the substances that are causing your allergy reactions. The allergy test is done by using a simple "scratch" technique - which involves a painless scratch on the surface of the skin and introducing a small amount of allergen extract to create a reaction (inducing an IgE reaction). Offending allergens produce a wheal (a raised, red area similar to a mosquito bite) in varying sizes depending on the severity of the reaction.

Food Allergies

It is estimated that that up to 12 million Americans have food allergies. A food allergy is an abnormal response by the immune system to a food trigger. Development of food allergies is dependent on a number of factors including timing of exposure to the allergenic food, frequency of consuming the allergenic food, and the integrity of the gastrointestinal system. Food allergies are implicated in a wide variety of conditions, some of which include migraine, depression, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic ear infections, eczema, psoriasis, recurrent infections, and weight gain.


immediate onset, occurs rapidly with the ingestion or inhalation of an allergen and is referred to as immediate hypersensitivity reaction, and is characterized by the release of histamine upon exposure to the allergen. IgE mediated hypersensitivities can be life threatening and occur in approximately 20% of the population. IgE is produced in response to an allergen/antigen and binds to the mast cells and basophils.

Delayed Onset

IgG antibodies are produced for several hours or days after exposure to an allergen and are called Type III delayed hypersensitivity reactions. Immune complexes activate a portion of the immune system known as complement and cytokins. This process takes anywhere from several hours to several days, which is why hypersensitivity reactions are delayed. Depending on which tissues are involved, deposition of IgG-Antigen complexes may result in a variety of health concerns such as joint pain, chronic headaches, hypertension, fatigue, eczema, and psoriasis.
