Nature Doctors employs the latest in scientific allergy testing to determine those allergies that are often hard to detect or are missed on standard skin prick allergy tests with your MD. The test consists of a finger prick with 5 drops of blood and can test for 96 common foods, herb/spices as well as environmental allergen and food additive panels.

What makes IgG / IgE testing unique is its ability to detect low grade allergies. IgG/IgE reactions can take anywhere from hours to days to occur so the patient often cannot figure out the triggering allergen. These antibody/allergen reactions have been linked to the following conditions in the literature:

  • Skin depositions: Eczema, Psoriasis and Acne
  • Respiratory Depositions: Asthma and recurrent ear, nose, sinus and throat infections
  • Joint Depositions: Joint pain and immune mediated arthritis
  • Fatigue and Pain
