Allergy Testing

Allergy Testing

Functional medicine practitioners commonly use allergy lab tests to gain a better understanding of what is going on in your body’s ecosystem. Your body is complex, so different root causes may show up as symptoms that seem typical or irregular for that particular ailment. This is especially the case if one source of disease or dysfunction is interacting with another. The specific information provided by the allergy lab tests we offer allows you to get the big picture of your body’s ecosystem and help you begin your journey toward better health. Discover a happier, healthier you!

ELISA/ACT®

ELISA/ACT Biotechnologies (EAB) is the exclusive provider of the lymphocyte response assay (LRA by ELISA/ACT) tests – the gold standard in delayed hypersensitivity testing.

Built on a strong foundation of patented technology, patient-friendly guidance, value-added support, and proven results, EAB will provide you with a successful plan to determine and address the causes of chronic disease and immune system dysfunction and restore overall health.

For over 30 years, our clinically proven, proprietary tests and individualized treatment plans have been  used successfully in managing chronic autoimmune and immune dysfunction syndromes.

LRA by ELISA/ACT®

ELISA/ACT® conducts a Lymphocyte Response Assay (LRA) test to detect delayed food and chemical allergies which is administered through a blood draw. The test examines your lymphocytes that indicate health and chronic illness, and also detects delayed food and chemical allergies.

Who is this test for?

This test is for people suffering from the autoimmune variants or immune dysfunction symptoms and conditions. Chronic autoimmune, immune dysfunction, and inflammatory problems deserve attention to their cause. LRA by ELISA/ACT® tests and interpretive treatment plans can be the key to unlocking the mystery of chronic illness.

How Is LRA by ELISA/ACT® Testing Unique?

LRA by ELISA/ACT® tests are the first and only blood tests that provide a complete evaluation of the body’s delayed immune response. A special blood drawing system, combined with simple patient test preparation instructions, prevents activation of lymphocytes prior to analysis. ELISA/ACT receives the patient’s one-ounce blood sample within 24 hours and analyzes it promptly.

LRA by ELISA/ACT® tests are:

  • Comprehensive – The only test that detects all 3 delayed allergy pathways (Type II, Type III, and Type IV) and offers the most items for testing.
  • Functional – Identifying only symptom-provoking reactive substances, not merely the presence of antibodies, which can be harmful or protective.
  • Ex-vivo – The unique ex-vivo system tests the lymphocytes as though they are still in the bloodstream being exposed to foreign invaders, thereby, providing highly specific and accurate information.

OUR HOLISTIC APPROACH

A Functional Medicine approach to healing includes evaluating and addressing the function of the body’s systems. Underlying issues such as genetics, diet, and lifestyle play a large part in the state of our health. That being the case, our approach often lends itself to the evaluation of the body’s systems. This is to say, we focus on identifying and addressing the underlying cause of an illness, rather than just suppressing symptoms. In short, we address the root cause of your health concerns, as well as the symptoms.

Holistic Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine Treatments

We use various health treatments to eliminate triggers and restore proper function and balance. These include nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, and lifestyle changes, and in some cases prescription medications. Deep and lasting healing is possible when we address the root causes of illness. For this reason, understanding the core systems of the body and how they are related, many chronic illnesses can be prevented and even reversed.
