Good news to those whose lives have been controlled by their allergies! You do not have to live with them anymore and have this menace trouble and enslave you forever!
I am so honored to be at the launch of LifeScience Center for Health and Wellness in BGC where I covered for Millennial Moms PH. It was an afternoon of learning alongside other concerned mommies who’d like to know what causes allergies and how to avoid them.
I, myself, suffer from a common allergic symptom of sneezing in the morning and having runny nose or itchy eyes and throat. My 1 year old daughter, Ysha, has this case of occasional dry spots on her skin which her derma calls as Atopic Dermatitis or which we commonly know as eczema. We are both allergic of something but we do not know what it is! If we knew, then we’d be able to avoid it, right?
Worried mommies like me would be thrilled to know that there is a test to identify allergens before they can even cause an allergic reaction!
FABER test is the most up-to-date and complete tool today to diagnose an allergy. With just one extraction and a minimal amount of blood sample, it will measure specific antibodies against bacteria, viruses and allergens.
The very simple process:
- Data gathering (history, daily diet or activity, etc.),
- Blood sample (no fasting or whatever preparation needed)
- Lab test
- Formulate personalized results and recommendations for you or your kid!
And get this- When found out that it’s chicken you’re allergic to, they could still trim it down to which component specifically. They’ll find out that your allergen could only be the yolk then you don’t have to avoid chicken altogether! Which means, life isn’t totally ruined! My kid could still enjoy fried chicken!
This screening test for allergies is made with the most advanced knowledge in the field of nanotechnology that’s why it’s also recommended for those who have allergy with rhinitis, asthma, urticaria, food reactions including abdominal pain and diarrhea.
Common allergies are rashes and sneezes, but they also manifest in the form of:
- swollen lips or face
- severe headache
- shortness of breath
- anaphylactic shock!
And I would not let my daughter experience any of these life-threatening allergy symptoms especially knowing that there’s a way to figure out what to avoid for her not to.
You may not even be aware that you have allergies. The symptoms really depend on what form you’re allergic to and how you came in contact with it. Most of the time, people discover they’re allergic to something when it has already caused a reaction in the body, right?
Infants to elderly are all eligible to take the test! Ysha’s eczema keeps coming back and when I asked her pedia of what can I do to stop it, she says we could visit an allergist and have her take the skin test to find out what is she allergic to. I didn’t want her to experience that! It could be really traumatic for a little girl to be pricked several times! Good thing with FABER, all it takes is a small amount of blood, one time, and we’re done!
This test is also recommended if you have been on a serious diet but still haven’t shred a single pound! Or if you are traveling to an unknown destination, moving to a new home, or even when starting a new job.
LifeScience uses the FABER test as tool in helping clients optimize their health through nutrition and lifestyle modification so they can properly avoid their allergy triggers, and learn how to better manage their allergies. Health span, longevity and vitality are their primary concern. That is why they’re not only specialists, they are supergeneralists!
You may request for the FABER test from your doctor or allergist who can customize the individual test interpretation based on the role of individual molecules seen as “risk markers.”
