Allergies and Their Cure

Dear Friends, ALLERGIES AND CHRONIC SINUSITIS CAN BE CURED! I have been practicing ‘clinical ecology’ and nutritional cleansing for 19 years, and during that time, hundreds of patients have become ‘allergy-free’ in as few as 2 to 3 visits! Here’s how:   The sinuses are dependent on the intestines for their well-being; Clogged intestines, clogged sinuses. And when an imbalance occurs in the organisms that live in the lining of the intestines, a condition known as ‘dysbiosis’, a wide array of symptoms and conditions can occur. The list includes: allergies, asthma, irritable bowel, Crohn’s, urinary tract infections, inability to concentrate, memory loss, headaches, depression, skin conditions, fatigue, cold hands and feet, food cravings, loss of libido, joint pain and more! Humans should have billions of the beneficial bacteria living in their intestinal tract. These ‘good bacteria’ keep the yeast, fungus, parasites and bad bacteria from overpopulating. Antibiotics, birth control pills, steroid drugs, a sugary junk food diet, and even the chlorine in tap water, have a damaging effect on the good bacteria. As the population of good bacteria weakens, the opportunistic bad organisms multiply and begin a cascade of ill effects. These include: increased inflammatory response, hypersensitive mucous membranes and ‘leaky gut syndrome’, a condition that permits unfriendly bacteria, undigested proteins and toxins to enter the blood stream. The various symptoms and conditions that result from this toxification vary from person to person, but the most common reaction is allergies and sinusitis. As you might guess, the use of antibiotics to combat sinus infections only perpetuates the problem. Septal defect surgery simply makes more room in the nasal cavity. It does not cure the problem of chronic inflamed mucous membranes! Eating yogurt or taking probiotic (friendly bacteria) supplements is only helpful in about 5% of the cases. It is far more important to artfully kill off the offending organisms and rebalance the ecology of the intestinal lining. This is where the skill comes in. A person could possibly get good results with an ‘anti-candida’ supplement from the health food store, but it’s hit or miss. Every intestinal tract is different, and there are many different types of maleficent organisms to contend with. I use specific kinesiology (muscle-response) testing techniques that pinpoint the offending allergens, and indicate which organisms are present and exactly which nutritional supplements are needed to do the job of cleansing and restoring the balance in the mucous membranes correctly the first time in most cases. In addition, I boost the immune system and balance the organs with acupuncture, give specific dietary guidelines for clearing the mucous and increasing energy, and give specific spinal adjustments to restore balance and increase vitality. I know it could be a stretch for some people to think that lifelong allergies could be relieved within a month or two, but the testimonials speak for themselves. Be prepared to throw away your antihistamines and inhalers and experience a greater quality of...

Food Allergies: More Common Than You May Think

Posted by on Apr 5, 2012 in Allergies, Back Pain, Healing, Holistic Health, Immune System | 0 comments

Food allergies and sensitivities are all the rage. Going ‘gluten-free’ is almost a fad these days. You are likely reading about it in magazines and hearing about movie stars trying it. Well, just like antioxidants in blueberries and omega 3 in fish oil, food sensitivities are something us Naturopaths and Clinical Nutritionists have been preaching for decades. In my own practice of twenty plus years, not a week has gone by that I haven’t taken someone off of one or another foods to help them turn their health around. A great many people are eating foods everyday that their bodies don’t process very well. When they do, it causes inflammation in the intestinal tract, and that can create conditions both subtle and gross such as low energy, brain fog, gas and bloating, headaches, rashes and much more. I have hundreds of success stories I could share. Here are two. One woman came to me complaining of daily headaches for the past 30 years. Mayo Clinic did not help, nor did any of the other dozen clinics she went to. She came on referral from one of my patients and told me her story. Within the first ten minutes I determined that she had a dairy sensitivity as well as a fungal (yeast) overgrowth. She started eating dairy free and clearing out the yeast, and in less than a week her headaches were gone and have not come back. Another patient presented with fatigue, gas and bloating and GERD (reflux and heartburn). I determined that he had an intolerance to gluten (not as bad as Celiac’s) and several other common foods. Removing those foods and taking some intestinal herbal remedies cleared his condition within two weeks. Both of these case studies are representative of the experience most patients have when they come to me for food allergy and sensitivity testing. I have also had patients who were being treated for neck or back problems and no other major complaints whom I ran my testing on just to see and whom showed sensitivities to certain foods. Going off the foods that tested positive resulted in them having more energy, better sleep, less colds and sinus problems, clearer skin and less headaches, to name a few. If you are experiencing nagging health issues, please consider making an appointment so we can look at any food sensitivities, allergies and/or other underlying issues. Health is our greatest wealth, and I’m here to help you feel...

Natural Allergy Solution

Posted by on May 24, 2010 in Allergies, Natural | 1 comment

It seems like every other person suffers from allergies in the Spring time in most areas of the country.  It can make you absolutely miserable and dramatically lower your quality of life for weeks at a time.  Helping people with allergies has always been a significant part of my practice and I’ve learned a lot over my 20 years in natural medicine.   My basic message to readers is that ‘the outside reflects the inside.’ In other words, you will be susceptible to pollens, cat dander, dust, etc. that are outside your body, to the degree that your insides, namely your mucous membranes, are clogged, full of mucous, or otherwise imbalanced.   The mucous membranes are the lining of your alimentary canal that runs from mouth to anus.  The primary problem area is the intestinal lining.  This area is a perfect breeding ground for yeast (Candida albicans, a type of fungus).  With things like antibiotics, birth control pills, steroid drugs, tap water and a sugary diet all contributing to their growth, it’s no wonder it is such a prevalent health issue.  Yeast overgrowth also directly contributes to chronic sinus infections, chronic colds and bronchitis, indigestion, brain fog, low energy and lethargy, and indirectly to a long list of other conditions.   The solution is balancing your intestinal tract by doing a little cleansing of a very specific nature for a few weeks. Restricting the foods that grow yeast and taking a good antifungal (natural, not Nystatin) can make a world of difference not only for allergies but for all the conditions mentioned above.  And the effects are permanent, notwithstanding doing all the things to encourage yeast growth again.  It’s not the only way to help allergies but in my experience the majority of people derive enormous benefit from this type of cleansing. I would be delighted to help anyone you know who is suffering from allergies.  In an initial Holistic Health Visit, I’d use Kinesiologic Analysis to determine the best anitfungal for you, and in addition to giving you a full consultation and treatment to address your allergies, we’d get you set up with a cleansing program (typically 3 weeks, though it differs for everyone) to address your systems and the root of the problem. There’s no reason to continue to suffer with allergies!  Call us at 610.896.1554 and schedule an appointment today to start feeling better in as soon as a week from when you start a cleanse program specialized to your...

Allergies: A Hidden Cause

Posted by on Apr 6, 2010 in Allergies | 0 comments

Here’s an interesting story for you.  This happened a number of years ago, after I had gotten very proficient at curing patients’ allergies, especially to environmental allergens such as dust, pollen and mold, but also including animal dander.  A woman in her 30’s came in to my clinic complaining of serious allergy symptoms related to cats.  What made her so driven to cure this allergy was the fact that her boyfriend owned two cats and he was very attached to them. I was expecting to put her on a specific cleanse as I did with most of my allergy patients because dietary cleansing is a key component of re-balancing the immune system and altering the allergic response.  But because I treat holistically and always try to discover any and all contributing factors to a patients’ condition, and knowing that ‘anything can cause anything’, I tested for emotional related factors. Sure enough, I uncovered the fact that her allergies were somehow tied in to the emotion of grief. When I questioned her she affirmed that she had recently lost a friend and was in fact experiencing grief.  The emotional clearing technique I utilize, NeuroEmotional Technnique, traces emotional states back to their inception, which for her happened to be an event that occured when she was 8 years old.  Again I questioned her about an experience of grief she may have had around age 8.  After thinking for a moment, her eyes got big, her mouth opened, and with a surprised look she said, “That was how old I was when I watched my kitty get run over by a truck…she was my best friend.”  We did the clearing technique for that trauma and, long story made short, her allergies vanished.  No cleanse, no herbal or other supplements, no change in diet, no acupuncture, and no chiropractic adjustment. I always remember that symptoms can be misleading, and because of that, I seek to find and treat the hidden...
