Food Allergy Blood Testing
Allergy Blood Testing (IgE & IgG )
The Allergy Testing offered at Revivelife™ is done via blood plasma analysis which assesses both reactions that occur immediately (IgE) and reactions that occur in a delayed reaction (IgG).
The number of items tested may be a whole panel or a smaller limited number depending on the area of concern. The most comprehensive approach to food & environmental reactions would be to overlap sensitivity results with allergy results.
Highlight: Test to check for allergies to foods
Functional Assessment of: IgE (immediate allergy reaction) & IgG (delayed allergy reaction)
Indicated for: Those who wish to feel optimal & balance digestive health, skin, asthma, allergies and energy.
The advantages to the Revivelife™ method are:
Number of Items Tested– Because one blood draw is taken and the testing is done on the sample retrieved, many items are able to be tested.
Accuracy– False negative results are minimized ( as when a person is stressed which may occur in scratch testing, the body releases adrenaline which may cause false negative results especially in children)
Immediate & Delayed Reaction Assessment– We are able to see results from an immediate allergic reaction ( IgE) and a delayed allergic reaction ( IgG)
Flexibility- The Test may be done as single samples from Gammadynacare or as group testing at Meridian Valley Labs through reviVelife Clinic. If you have more than 19 items that you wish to have tested it is advised to use the group testing for 95 items as your best financial option.
Accessibility- You do not need a doctor’s referral and your visit to obtain your lab requisition may be booked to your earliest convenience.
Why Should I Have Allergy Testing Done?
Allergy Testing is recommended if you have “traditional allergy” symptoms such as hives, swelling, itching eyes, running nose, sinus symptoms, anaphylaxis reactions OR wish to have a very comprehensive report on what your body’s reactions are to foods.
What is the difference between allergies & sensitivities?
Allergies follow the immunoglobulin E or G pathways causing the mast cells in the immune system to release histamine to produce traditional allergy symptoms.
The symptoms of allergies include: darkness under the eyes, sinus congestion, moodiness, hives, swelling and may be a medical emergency in anaphylaxis cases.
This is in comparison to sensitivity symptoms which tend to impact your health wherever your genetic weaknesses are so are more generalized .
Sensitivity symptoms may include: bloating, gas, diarrhea or constipation, headaches, skin symptoms, pain, mood changes and decreased focus or memory to name a few.
In general the weaker the digestive system and immune system the more the number of allergies or sensitivities that are present. Leaky Gut Syndrome may be a related underlying factor. If you have many reactions it is important to have a health restoration program which includes adrenal , digestive & immune balancing features designed for you. For a complete review it is recommended to have a new patient visit with any test methods.

Steps to Testing
Step one- You are given a requisition for testing in which you go to any Gammadyna Care Lab in Ottawa
Give the Gammadynacare technician your Gammadynacare lab requisition.
They will take your kit, draw your blood sample and then centrifuge it and ask you to return 2 hours later to pick it up. Allow for time for this ie go at least 2 hrs before the lab closes.
Step two– Once the sample is received then it is to be sent to the US lab that will complete the testing . Follow the shipping instructions below.
The results are generally available 2 weeks after sample is received.
Refer to shipping instructions with the kit
The sample must be taken on either Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, and must be shipped on the same day the sample was taken. The sample must arrive at lab with in 24-48 hours.
