Primary Specialties

Food Allergies and Sensitivities

  • Do you suffer from digestive problems, such as gas, bloating, diarrhea, or constipation?
  • Do your eyes sometimes feel itchy or watery?
  • Do you often experience fatigue, hyperactivity, or difficulty in concentrating?
  • Do you suffer from recurrent asthma, bronchitis or sinus problems?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be experiencing symptoms caused by food allergens. The symptoms may be immediate or may be delayed – by hours or even days after exposure. There are two major ways to identify food allergens:

  1. The allergy elimination diet. In this diet, you would eliminate foods that tend to be troublesome such as dairy and wheat. After a period of time, you would then add back the eliminated foods, noting which ones cause your symptoms to reoccur.
  2. A LEAP blood test which identifies the body’s reactions that cause delayed responses – “hidden allergies” that do not show up on conventional tests.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a very common complaint, consisting of symptoms of bloating, pain before bowel movements, diarrhea and/or constipation. First we have to determine by questioning and sometimes by lab tests which of several causes is predominant in your particular case. IBS then responds well to treatment. Sometimes treatment is a change of diet, and sometimes supplements are added such as probiotics and magnesium. Sometimes the culprit is food sensitivities and diet is built up around foods which are best for you as an individual. I use the LEAP test by Signet Labs which gives us the full body response to 150 foods and chemicals. Other factors may play a role in individual cases. Come in for some help and diet recommendations. We can determine which specific regimen and food plan is right for you.

  • "I have been coming to see Dr. Judith Mabel for three months. Since then, I have lost 44 pounds and 13 inches! We started with a simple cleansing diet and then moved to a sensible eating plan which I have been able to follow during a very busy couple of months. Judy also got me started on an exercise program, and then I joined a gym. I can't tell you how great I feel right now! I feel like a new person."
