Allergy and Sensitivity Testing at
Coeur d’Alene Wellness

Desi with patientHave you ever wondered about the difference between allergies and sensitivities to various foods, chemicals, plants, etc.? The answer is relatively straightforward. If you are “allergic” to an item, it means your immune system has created antigens to that item, just like it would for an infection, say, strep throat or the stomach flu. Then when you are exposed/exceed the threshold to that substance in the future, your body has an actual immune antibody reaction to it.

Anaphylaxis to peanuts would be a well-known example of this type of allergy. Often the reaction is not as extreme, but you get the idea. Whenever you are exposed to an allergic substance (a drug, food, insect sting/venom, chemical, etc.), your immune system is primed to respond with antibodies that have just been waiting. With repeated exposure, the severity of the reaction may increase.

What Are Sensitivities?

Sensitivities, on the other hand, are your body’s overreaction due to exposure to a food or substance to which your immune system has an inflammation response but does not develop antibodies. You may bloat if it is a food, feel itchy if it is a substance, etc.

The SET-DB Program

Coeur d’Alene Wellness utilizes a program through ZYTO Elite software called SET-DB, which is specifically designed to detect and reduce or eliminate hundreds of sensitivities. We run an initial scan showing you categories that are out of range for you; that is, your body has an exaggerated reaction.

The initial scan checks over 70 categories, including the following:

  • Foods
  • Plants
  • Chemicals
  • Molds

Follow-up care is done on a per category basis with specifically selected items from the category or categories needing action. Some categories have 35-40 items, while others can have 600-650 items. A per category session takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.
