this is the one i did >
How much did you pay and do you have to go through some practitioner or just go by yourself?
My son's IgE came 250X of the higher end of the spectrum, so I am searching into allergies like zombie at this moment. There are so many methods and stuff to check that I am quite confused where one should concentrate.
honestly df, i don't remember - my ND set it up, I went and had the blood drawn, and it got sent off - I'm pretty sure you can work directly with them as long as you have a local lab that can take your blood - they can tell you for sure -
if i would have been smart and ditched the bad stuff from the get go, i probably would have saved myself years of grief - but stubbornness and stupidity ruled my world at that time -
the biggest issue for me is the sneaky ass gluten - for me it's not a quick attacker - it's slow, stealthy thing that eventually catches up and wreaks hell on my colon - that's why it took so long for me to accept that is was THE biggest problem ! an allergy is easy - eat a banana, run before your pants fill up - with a sensitivity or intolerance, it's much harder to decipher - it literally would takes months for me, depending on how much i ate -
i also have issues with corn and rice, which also tested in the red zone -
