HOLISTIC TREATMENT OPTIONS
Allergy Testing (Including Food Allergy Testing) – Plano, TX
Allergic disease (also known as allergies) are a number of conditions caused by an abnormal immune response to foreign substances in your body. Trying to find everything that you are allergic to is difficult (and sometimes dangerous).
Allergy testing should be performed by an expert that can properly diagnose what triggers your immune response. Once you know exactly what you are allergic to, your allergy doctor can develop a personalized treatment plan to provide allergy relief.
Did you know that untreated allergic disease can be the main cause of many illnesses such as insomnia, sinusitis, headaches & migraines, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, muscle aches, joint pain, back pain and much more?
Allergy testing, physical exams and your complete medical history are the most reliable, cost-effective, and safe approaches to finding what you are allergic to.
What Happens During Allergy Testing?
Our allergy test center uses what is called a “scratch test” to find out what you are allergic to. This is done by placing a “skin tester” on your back. The “skin tester” exposes your skin to many different substances at once. Make sure that you avoid any antihistamines for at least 48 hours prior the allergy test to ensure the best results.

This procedure is quick and painless, but if you are allergic to any of the substances, you may experience some itching. This process will only take 20 minutes. Be sure to take this time to ask your allergy doctor any questions.
After we go over your results, our allergy doctor will give you a copy of your results. If needed, you may be recommended a special allergy treatment called home immunotherapy . Home immunotherapy is a process in which a serum (similar to insulin shots) is created based on your test results.
The allergy tech will make sure that you able administer the sreum to yourself correctly by yourself. Over time the serum will build up your immune system to the allergens you are allergic to. This form of allergy treatment saves time because it doesn’t require multiple trips to the doctor’s office.
