Allergens are usually harmless substances capable of triggering responses that begin in the immune system and can result in symptomatic reactions. The immune system responds by releasing inflammatory chemicals that typically cause symptoms in the nose, throat, eyes, ears, skin, or roof of the mouth. Symptoms can also include inflammation within the body that result in pain or soreness. The two types of allergies include environmental and food. Environmental allergies include trees, grass, pet hair, dust, mold, and a variety of others. Food allergies consist of nuts, dairy, shellfish, wheat, and a variation of others.
Environmental allergies can be treated with immunotherapy, as food allergies can not. Food allergies can only be treated with an elimination diet. Immunotherapy involves gradually increasing doses of the known allergy slowly over time to build up immunity.
Benefits of Allergies and Inflammation Testing
The biggest benefit of these services is awareness and identification. Once you are aware of these sensitivities to certain allergens that you may not have realized were hidden under the surface, you will better understand how to manage your reactions to them and reduce the occurrence of chronic inflammation. As well as this result, you can expedite your healing process by identifying problems that may have been hindering your recovery without awareness.
The DEXA scan stands for dual energy x-ray absorptiometry. This machine identifies body composition and bone density. Body composition is total mass, fat mass, lean mass, and all of that mass distributed to different parts of the body. Bone density relays information regarding the quality of the bones.
A hydromassage bed is a convenient, dry, and full body massage that uses pressurized water to deliver a “all sides” massage. This massage is great for patients that do not want a full deep tissue or hands on massage. Hydromassage beds give temporary relief to minor aches and pains while reducing stress levels and improving circulation.
