Allergy testing is an important first step to effective treatment for food and chemical sensitivities. More than 50 million people in the United States have allergies that can be causing weight gain, fatigue, muscle or joint pain, hypertension, indigestion, anxiety, depression, etc.
These allergies may not show in a simple scratch test, but with Momentum Health Center’s testing platforms, Allervision and Alletess, we can uncover sensitivities that cause your body to have inflammation and dysfunction that over time can develop into chronic issues. The highly individualized testing will help you with your issues. You do not have to live with allergies or auto-immune disorders. There are simple solutions.
An allergy is an overreaction of the immune system as it thinks it is being invaded by a parasite rather than a food or harmless allergen in the environment, and therefore it rallies its defenses to fight off the enemy.
The list of symptoms caused by allergies is longer than you might think. Primary signs of allergies include:
- Runny or congested nose
- Watery and itchy eyes
- Frequent ear infections
- Sinus headaches
- Nasal polyps
- Conjunctivitis (eye irritation)
- Muscle/joint pain
- Mental problems such as confusion, slow thinking, depression and forgetfulness
- Respiratory effects including endless colds, chronic cough, recurrent bronchitis
- Digestive issues such as bloating, indigestion, and IBS
- Weight gain
Of course, there are many possible reasons for these symptoms. The only way to know if they are caused by allergies is to take an allergy test. Momentum Health Center offers a pain-free skin test that provides answers in very little time.
