IgG Antibody Testing Now Available
Have you been exposed to Covid-19?
Antibodies are produced by the immune system once it is exposed to a harmful bacteria or virus. At first exposure, IgM antibodies are produced by the immune system to fight the infection. These circulate mainly in the blood and lymph. Once the active infection has passed, the long term IgG antibodies continue to circulate in the blood and tissues to provide long term protection against the microbe.
Our practice uses Sonora Quest Labs an FDA approved lab. Most insurance covers the test if done through Sonora Quest. This is a serum test, not a finger stick which is much more accurate, as there are not enough comparison studies done to establish the accuracy of the finger stick test.
The most important reason to go to a naturopath for this test is the office visit will provide you with education on how to modulate your immune system. This is especially important for those who suffer from chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation increases the likelyhood that you will develop serious complications to Covid requiring hospitilization. This is due to having more proteins in the blood (thicker blood), chronic immune system activation, and the use of over the counter medications.
By coming to a naturopath, you will be empowered with how to naturally thin the blood, lower inflammation, and build a strong immune system which will create a broad based protection for you. This broad based defense is more powerful and effective than a vaccine which targets a specific strain of the virus. It is well known that viruses mutate, this is why those who receive the flu vaccine still get the flu. Your immune system, if healthy and unburdened by toxins and poisons has the ability to adapt to these mutations, providing continual protection for years to come.
