Our Allergy Evaluations include a customized supplement plan for seasonal, food, and environmental allergies. The number of Americans with allergies has grown in all racial, sex, and age groups since the 1980s. According to a survey from the CDC, in 2010 alone there were 11.1 million visits to physician offices with the primary diagnosis of allergic rhinitis, also commonly known as hay fever or seasonal allergies. Moreover there are approximately 50 million Americans that have asthma, hay fever or other allergy-related conditions. Some allergic conditions are mild, whereas others can be life threatening. There are no cures for allergies, but they can be managed through regular treatments. Having an allergy evaluation performed by In Sync Health can help identify the specific triggers of your allergy symptoms, and avoidance of the specific allergen can augment healthy living.
Kinesiology follows a simple procedure when detecting possible allergic sensitivities. The patient’s muscles are tested to find out whether the patient is allergic to a particular allergen.
The therapist exposes the patient’s body to the suspected allergen and examines the movement of the muscles. The movement will reveal whether the body is allergic to the allergen or not. The focus is on the strength and weakness of the muscles. It is also possible that muscle testing or kinesiology can help identify the possible antidote for the allergy.
Kinesiology is a safe and simple allergy testing method that has no known side effects. The patient will not feel any pain throughout the process. They can stay relaxed why kinesiology is being administered. This is the reason why Kinesiology can be done even to infants. This is the perfect way to administer Allergy Evaluations.
What is the Difference Between a Food Allergy and a Food Intolerance?
With a food allergy, the immune system is involved and the response is usually immediate and dramatic. Typical symptoms include: coughing, sneezing, vomiting, migraines, watering eyes, rashes, swelling tissue, hives. In severe cases, there can be anaphylactic shock which requires emergency intervention. With symptoms involving the digestive system, such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea, the response can be delayed for hours or even days.
A food intolerance tends to have a slow onset (hours, days or even weeks). It happens when a person is unable to break down and digest a particular food, often because of a lack of appropriate enzymes. The food therefore passes through the digestive tract unprocessed, or lingers in the gut fermenting and producing excess ‘gas’. Sometimes protein fragments can rupture the lining of the intestines, allowing foreign particles into the bloodstream. Although food intolerances may involve the immune system, they are aren’t life threatening, although over time can prevent the absorption of nutrients, causing serious illness and tissue damage.
How can Kinesiology Help to Diagnose Allergies?
Using muscle-testing, we can find out whether a particular food is stressful for a person by placing the item on their body and pressing on a muscle. If the person is stressed by the food, the muscle will unlock (go weak) whereas if there is no stress involved, the muscle will remain locked (strong). We can also test to see if it is an allergy or an intolerance and see how it might be affecting the person emotionally as well as physically.
