Allergies are the body's subtle way of altering us to the potential dangers of snuggling with shellfish or filling the Jacuzzi with peanut oil. Discover the things you should avoid with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a food-allergy test and consultation at Interchange Medical Wellness Center (a $229 value).
Interchange Medical Wellness Center employs an ELISA food allergy blood test to identify delayed, hard-to-pinpoint food sensitivities. The results of the test measure the patient's reactions to 20 of the most common delayed food allergens including dairy, wheat, gluten, and soy, as well as reactions to other potential allergens such as food additives, environmental toxins, and homework. Once the lab processes the results, patients return to the lab where the doctor discusses an individualized treatment plan designed to improve health, boost the immune system, and avoid uncomfortable run-ins with ex-love Mr. Peanut. As an added bonus, Groupon customers can also take advantage of a 20% discount on their first purchase of supplements from Interchange, and may opt to apply the value of today's deal to a more intensive test of more than 80 food allergies ($330).
As of July 2012, Interchange Medical Wellness Center no longer offers allergy testing, but the value of this Groupon may be used toward any other service, including acupuncture ($75 for one session), personal training ($45 for one 30-minute session), and massage ($45 for one 30-minute massage).
