Allergies can range from irritating, to debilitating, to life-threatening – so it's important to learn what you're allergic to. Many people aren’t even aware of their allergies, or how their allergies might be connected to other quality of life aspects. With Allergy Testing by Confidia™ Health Institute, you’ll know what you’re allergic to – and how to overcome allergies hindering your healthy living.

Inside The Science
What Causes Allergies?
Allergic reactions are the result of your body reacting to external stimuli. Essentially, a foreign particle – like pet dander, pollen, or dust – enters your body. Your body thinks it’s being attacked by something infectious, and “overreacts” by releasing chemicals or antibodies. This release can cause a myriad of symptoms, some visible and some not. In particularly severe cases, the sudden release of chemicals is so great that it can send your body into shock. Severe allergic reactions can be treated with epinephrine, such as an EPI pen.
What is the Allergy Test Like?
Confidia Allergy Testing involves applying various common allergens to your skin and observing your body's reaction. A system is used to apply 10 or more different allergens at a time, to expedite the test for you. By observing and documenting how your body reacts – usually seen by swelling around your allergic sites, the Confidia staff can determine exactly what you're allergic to, and to what severity.
Allergy Treatment Plans
With the data from your Allergy Test, Confidia Health Institute can create a plan to reduce or eliminate your exposure to the allergens causing your symptoms. You will know the exact triggers of your allergic reactions, and how to avoid the triggers in the future.
Your allergy treatment will become part of a personal, connected care plan that builds Your Path to True Health. By reducing your body's need to spend energy fighting allergens, you'll feel better and be more productive.
If you require specific extracts to combat seasonal or perennial allergies, Confidia can provide Allergy Immunotherapy. These custom-mixed products can slowly train your immune system to be less sensitive to allergens. Tiny amounts of the allergen are introduced to your body over time, slowly getting your immune system used to the allergen. Then, when your body is exposed to the allergen during normal day-to-day activity, your immune system is stronger and doesn’t create a reaction.
Why Confidia is Different
- Confidia Health Institute considers Allergy Testing important data that can inform full body health – and unlike many primary care physicians, can perform treatment services inside the Institute rather than sending you to another facility.
