Allergy Symptoms Require Allergen Analysis Services
Overreaction (allergy symptoms) can lead to a runny nose, sneezing, blocked sinuses, itchy, and watery eyes etc. If you’ve found allergies in kids, or any family members, you may need allergy tests like skin tests, blood tests, or elimination diet.
At the same time, you need to figure out which of the environmental allergens around you too. The sooner these allergens are identified, the sooner they can be treated, or removed, and, minimizing the allergic reactions, and improving the health. Will Legend helps to restore you to an optimal balance of health and vitality.
Allergy Testing Complementary To Allergen Analysis
After skin tests, blood tests and once doctor has determined which allergens are causing the allergic symptoms, we can then work together to come up with a complete solution for avoiding, or minimizing allergens around you.
On the other hand, if you worry about allergy tests may result in mild itching, redness, swelling of the skin or, on rare occasions, an immediate, severe allergic reaction that requires medical attention, you can choose to eliminate the environmental allergens first.
Mould Allergy (Mold Allergy) & Mould Illness (Mold Illness)
Mould (Mold) is one of the most commonly missed allergens, or understated toxins (called mycotoxins) in homes or workplaces, and the fact is mould (mold) identification is challenging. For people who are allergic to mould (mold), they are affected by mould (mold) illness in multiple different ways for examples, tearing, redness of the eyes, chronic cough that mimics asthma etc.
Will Legend believes that mold allergy tests, functional medicine should be combined with a proper environmental allergen analysis as well as green-deep cleaning options. Of course, a healthy lifestyle like eating healthy, exercise more, sleep well, and maintain a positive spirit is also essential. In every case, the very first thing you need to do is to stay away yourselves from mold exposure. It could help you to get rid of mold illness like mold allergy, mold toxicity, mold colonization, and mold infection.
Green-deep Cleaning Reliefs Allergic Reactions (Allergy Symptoms)
At indoors, the most common ways that trigger allergic reaction (diseases) are by breathing and touching. Allergy symptoms can include like skin rashes, trouble breathing, coughing, sneezing/runny nose (or congestion), itchy eyes, and upset stomach etc.
To relief allergic reactions (or allergy symptoms), mold illness and mold allergy, Will Legend highly recommends to adopt the Green-deep Cleaning Service after locating the environmental allergens like VOC gases, dust mites, bacteria, moulds (molds), and viruses etc. These allergens may cause allergic reactions (hypersensitivity reactions) from mild skin issues to severe health issues including asthma, bronchitis, and eczema when they land on the skin or in the eye or are inhaled and eaten.
Will Legend Indoor Environmental Allergen Analysis Services
Will Legend adopts MARIA® Allergen Analysis. MARIA® is a multiplex array developed on the Luminex XMAP® system that can provide quantitative, accurate, and precise measurements of multiple indoor allergens in a single test.
MARIA® Analysis Services can detect specific allergens from 14 common allergens of dust mite (Der p 1, Der f 1 and Mite Group 2), cat (Fel d 1), dog (Can f 1), mouse (Mus m 1), rat (Rat n 1), cockroach (Bla g 2), Alternaria (Alt a 1) and the pollen allergens of birch (Bet v 1) and timothy grass (Phl p 5).
Will Legend goes to the home, and the workplace to collect dust samples, and analyse whether the allergens are dust mites, animals (rats, cats & dogs), cockroaches, pollen, moulds, or bacteria etc.
A written Indoor Allergen Analysis Report (Allergen Analysis Results) will be sent to you after samples are analyzed by the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited Environmental Testing Laboratory. Once allergens are located, not only a range of green-deep cleaning services will be recommended, but also allergy relief products. This is because Will Legend works things out as a whole over a single symptom.
