We Offer Comprehensive Food Sensitivity Tests
Why Use the US BioTek Food Sensitivity Test - at home finger stick
The foods you eat may be impacting your health more than you know. In fact, many non-seemingly related conditions--from IBS and digestive problems to migraines and mood disorders to acne and eczema--may actually be correlated to adverse food reactions. Unlike food allergies, reactions from food sensitivities may occur hours or even days after eating the offending food. Delayed food sensitivities, known as IgG-mediated reactions, are sometimes blamed on aging or other environmental factors. Most sufferers are unaware that their symptoms are related to the food they are eating.
US BioTek offers a simpler way to get tested using an at-home finger stick blood sample. All their tests are run twice, so you never have to second guess the results. After you collect a blood sample and send it to their laboratory for analysis, easy to interpret results are sent back to your healthcare provider with a personalized plan for your specific food sensitivities.
To get started, pick up the kit from our office then collect a sample at home. Current patients & non-patients are welcome!

Why Try a Designs For Health Detox Kit
We live in an ever-increasingly toxic environment. Many of the toxins abundant in the environment today did not exist 30yrs ago. These new toxins include certain pesticides, herbicides, and industrial chemicals that can enter the body through food, water, and air supplies. These toxins can and often do become trapped in the body's organs and tissues, which over time can negatively impact health, vitality, and overall wellness, and may contribute to the development of chronic illness. By supporting the body's natural two-phase process of detoxification, tonis can safely and effectively be cleansed from the body.
Detoxification is a continuous physiologic process that your body depends on for survival. There are complex cellular detoxification mechanisms that are constantly at work for you all day, every day. Natural and synthetic chemicals are processed by this complex system of cells, organs, and organ systems to keep you healthy in the face of a virtually constant barrage of toxic material. This program is an excellent tool to improve your detoxification in the short term.
