At AToL we can take out the ‘needle in the haystack’ approach!
The symptoms of IgG mediated food intolerance (food allergy Type 3) are not instant but delayed, appearing hours or even up to three days after the consumption of a trigger food. It is therefore, very difficult to pinpoint what is the cause of your symptoms!!
We use at AToL a high standard of European, English and Australian Laboratories who will analyse your blood serum with their specialised diagnostic testing to measure IgG antibodies to either 90 or 220 or 270 common trigger foods.
The results from these tests will determine precisely which individual foods may be contributing to you experiencing symptoms such as bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, reflux, eczema, itching, hives, facial flushing, sneezing, watery eyes, sinus, cough, wheeze, migraines, fatigue, weight gain and mood disturbances. All these symptoms are contributed by low grade inflammation.
Based on the results of the antibody titre, the foodstuffs are then categorised into three groups:
- Not elevated – Normal
- Elevated – Moderate or Borderline
- Highly elevated
We can help you with our AToL Practitioners who are specially trained in Clinical Nutrition and Naturopathic Medicine.
Our Nutritionists will discuss with you the results of your report and will suggest an integrated approach of elimination, challenge and re-introduction of the foodstuffs you have reacted to in an organised way.
Let’s face it the whole elimination, re-introduction and rotation of foods seems quite a daunting process and even worse if there are other family members to consider! Our Nutritionists are skilled in guiding you through this complicated maze by personally putting together a rotational diet not only of the foods you can eat but also and more importantly ‘the foods you like to eat’!
Our practitioners have over 27 years experience between them in understanding gut health and the immune system. They are trained to address the root cause of the allergy. We do not use bandaids which allows the allergy to repeat after the short term medication has worn off. A thorough case history of your gastrointestinal and immune health will be taken together with the results from your allergy test and with this information it will enable us to create an individual treatment protocol for you.
No one person suffers the same ‘cluster’ of allergies so therefore we offer a wide selection gut healing powders, scientific probiotics and nutrients to help reduce the inflammation, restore the integrity of the gut wall and improve your immune tolerance. Our qualified Naturopaths are on hand ready to formulate and tailor make these powders specifically for you.
We have heard so many times stories of how long people have been suffering and continue to suffer! ‘What is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result (wrongly attributed to Albert Einstein but nonetheless a great quote!).
When it comes to Allergies there is no quick fix we have to understand and address the underlying causes.
