In House Allergy Testing

Has allergy season got you down? Do you know what is actually contributing to your symptoms?

IHC offers in-house allergy testing to help identify what might be causing you grief this season.

Some of the most common offenders include trees, pollens, grass, dust, mold, or perhaps it’s your favorite 4-legged friend?

Information from allergy tests can be used to help develop an allergy treatment plan. Allergy tests to diagnose allergies and successful treatment can result in improvements in:

Hay fever

Allergic asthma

Dermatitis (eczema)

Unexplained fatigue

Scratch testing has been used for decades to safely and effectively identify allergies. Before your test it is important to avoid any allergy medications, like antihistamines, for 72 hours to ensure the most accurate results.

Exciting News!

IHC is excited to now be offering I.V. Ozone and Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (O3UVB)!

From the long-used “low-dose” ozone treatments (60 Gamma or 3600mcg) that have been used since the early 1900’s, to the latest technological advancements in the treatment allowing for “high-dose” O3UVB treatments (70 Gamma or 140,000mcg) – we will offer whatever dose is ideal for each individual patient. With over 70,000 treatments of high-dose ozone with UVB having now been administered, and over 200 medical studies validating this treatment, we believe this will be a well-received new offering for the patients of IHC.

O3UVB treatment has the most evidence of benefit in the following conditions:

  • Ischemic heart & peripheral vascular disease
  • Acute & Chronic Bacterial infections (Strep, staph, E. Coli, chronic osteomyelitis)
  • Acute & Chronic Viral infections (influenza, hepatitis, H1N1, pneumonia, sinusitis)
  • Autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, allergies)
  • Cancer (for improving quality of life and managing certain side effects of treatment)
  • There are also OB/GYN, Pulmonary, Gastrointestinal, Genito-Urinary, and psychiatric indications

Ask your IHC doctor if this treatment can be helpful for you.

From the Cancer Care Centre

Cancer Prevention

Approximately 40% of all cancers diagnosed in Canada may be preventable. It is possible to lower cancer risk through proper health optimization and early screening. The Integrated Health Clinic has doctors who are highly trained in both cancer prevention and screening and we encourage you to book in for a consultation to discuss this matter. As we are heading into the warmer months, be aware that sun exposure is a well known modifiable risk factor for skin cancers including melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. DNA damage from sun begins early in life. As such protective behaviours early in life will provide the greatest benefit. This summer ensure to remember the following when it comes to protecting your and your children’s skin:

Do not burn.

Avoid sun tanning and tanning beds.

Applysunscreen to sun exposed regions (Thinksport SPF 50+ Sunscreen is one of the most coral friendly sunscreens available)

Wear protective clothing such as wide brimmed hats, sun glasses, light weight long sleeved shirts and pants.

Seek shade between 10:00 AM-4:00 pm when UV rays are the strongest.

Use extra caution near water or sand which reflect damaging rays of the sun.

Check the UV index before you head out to give you a sense of what the risk of burning is.

Get your vitamin D safely through a diet that includes vitamin D supplementation and do not rely on the sun for vitamin.

In the News

Vitamin D supplementation could not only save lives, but millions in health care dollars.

"In the United States, distributing a 5-cent vitamin D tablet to persons older than 50 would cost about $2.2 billion per year but would prevent 78,000 cancer deaths, save $3.7 billion, and endow older Americans with an additional 870,000 years of life” - Medscape

Food for Thought

Like Chocolate?

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE chocolate! One of my favorite chocolate recipes is actually bean based. Bean are full of protein and fiber both of which help you feel satiated and keep blood sugar stable and thus help keep your energy stable. Unlike most chocolate treats. There are few ingredients and all you need is a pan and high powered blender or food processor


3 ½ cooked beans (2 cans)

¾ cup melted coconut oil

¾ cup cocoa powder

½ cup low carb sweetener (or to taste)

6 scoops stevia extract

½ tsp vanilla

1/8 tsp salt


Put all the ingredients in high powered blender (like Vitamix) or food processor and process until smooth. Adjust sweetener to taste at this point

Spread mixture in an 8x8 pan pressing down firmly

Place in fridge for at least an hour or until firm. Slice into squares and serve

Store in fridge or freezer for longer storage or for a frozen fudgey treat

Recipe from https://wholenewmom.com/healthy-fudge-dairy-free-fudge/

Its one of my favorite sweet treat recipes and easily adapted for many allergies or food intolerances. I have used every bean for this including chick peas and kidney beans and all work wonderfully. Hope you enjoy!
