Navigating the Lymphocyte Response Assay Test

women in consultation If you’re seeking relief from chronic inflammation, understanding the journey of the Lymphocyte Response Assay is crucial. The first step in this process involves a meticulous four-day preparation to ensure accurate results. You must abstain from steroids for four days and antihistamines and aspirin for two days during this period. These restrictions are in place to allow your white blood cells to respond effectively during the test.

Every detail matters on this journey to relief. The night before the test, washing your hair with an organic shampoo or Johnson’s baby shampoo is essential because some shampoos contain aspirin derivatives, which could potentially interfere with the test. Aspirin is absorbed through the skin, so this step helps prevent false positives.

How to Prepare for Test Day

On the test day, simplicity is key. When you wake up in the morning, refrain from bathing, applying makeup, or brushing your teeth with toothpaste. Instead, brush with water only to avoid any substances in toothpaste that might affect the test results. This rigorous attention to detail ensures that the test’s accuracy is maintained.

Once you arrive at our facility, we take your picture as part of the process. A blood sample is drawn and then airfreighted to a specialized laboratory where the real magic happens.

An Impeccably Accurate Test

The laboratory behind the Lymphocyte Response Assay is no ordinary establishment. Founded by a Senior Fellow from the National Institute of Health, this facility has refined the test to achieve impeccable accuracy. Originally developed at St. Louis Medical School, the laboratory founder perfected the test to stop inflammation and promote healing.

A Holistic Approach to Healing

When the results are in, our holistic approach to healing kicks in. We consider not only dietary changes but also the optimal functioning of your cells. Cellular energy is essential for repair, so we test your Omega-3 and Omega-6 oil concentrations, and if necessary, we may recommend supplements to optimize cellular energy. Additionally, vitamin C, magnesium, and antioxidants are vital for stimulating cellular repair.
