Treatments Offered

We can treat most allergy cases including routine allergens (trees, grasses, weeds, molds, cats, dogs, stinging insects etc.); foods, yeast, and chemical allergens; and even some illnesses such as Shingles, Herpes Simplex, Mononucleosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Fibromyalgia. Treatment can be by either intradermal or sublingual. The patient chooses. Some patients try one and then the other. Intradermal treatment is for once or twice a week, depending on the antigen. Sublingual is daily but no syringes are required. Below is some general information about allergens to help you understand what they are.

A substance which induces an allergic reaction.
Provocative Testing not only shows relative sensitivity, but it is used to make a solution which is designed to help the patient eat that food in moderation.
Food Screening
A series of skin tests is given to show relative sensitivity to certain foods. This helps the patients to identify probable offending foods.
The initials of three mold which occur as skin infections. Trichophyton-Candida albicans-Epidermophyton. Trichophyton causes athlete’s foot and similar infection over the body. Candida causes thrush, ear infections, vaginitis, prostatitis, and gastrointestinal yeast infections. Epidermophyton also causes skin reactions.
Organic compounds fall into two major categories: straight chain (aliphatic) and circular (aromatic with a benzene ring). Formaldehyde is the simplest straight chain, and phenol is the simplest circular organic compound left when the body breaks down an organic compound to its simplest form. By desensitizing to either, or both, most individuals can again tolerate many other chemicals, carpets, materials, tobacco smoke, perfumes, soaps, hair products, pressed boards, etc.
Flu, Chronic Fatigue, Mononucleosis, Shingles
Dilute amounts of the influenza virus vaccine can be used to counteract flu symptoms. The same regimen can be used to treat Herpes Simplex, Herpes Zoster (Shingles), Varicella (chicken pox), Mononucleosis, and other post viral symptoms such as the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Food Dyes
Vegetable coloring in foods, cosmetics, soaps, toothpastes, etc. may cause allergic reactions. They are made from salycilates and are chemically related to aspirin. These too can be treated.
Food Additives & SweetenerAspartameMSG<Saccharine
Aspartame, Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), and Sccharine are antigenic to some. While most may be avoided, many times we unknowingly encounter these when we eat out. Avoidance is best, but neutralization can be achieved if necessary.
Chlorine, Mineral Spirits, Latex, Silicone
These miscellaneous chemicals can also be neutralized in most cases to a tolerable level.
Caine Drugs
Caine drugs can cause allergic reactions that can be life threatening. Lidocaine, Carbocaine, Marcaine, Novocaine, Septocaine, etc. can be tested to rule out which caine drugs your doctor/dentist may or may not use.
we offer mosquito drops to help with reactions when encountering mosquito bites.
Stinging Insects
Stinging insect antigen includes bumble bee, honey bee, fire ant, hornet, wasp, and yellow jacket. Neutralization can help decrease reactions caused by these stinging insects.
