We utilize the latest research showing allergies to be a "disharmonization" within the bodymind complex. We can pinpoint the specific offenders, whether it is food, chemicals, pollen, dust, dander, mold, etc. and "desensitize" the body so it no longer reacts to them. This often results in complete elimination of the allergy. This is an area where we have much success.
Conventional treatment of allergies is most commonly directed to block the immune response. While this approach can provide symptomatic relief, it does nothing to address the underlying causes of the problem. Patients often become dependent on their medications, they suffer from numerous side effects, and most importantly, they worsen their overall health by constantly suppressing their immune system.
Asthma is a respiratory condition in which the bronchial tubes spasm and excessive mucous is secreted into the lungs, inhibiting breathing and creating a variety of symptoms. "Extrinsic" asthma is an allergy-induced reaction in which serum IgE's antibodies increase. "Intrinsic" asthma is a bronchial reaction triggered by stress, cold, exercise, environmental pollutants, or an infection.
There are anywhere from 15-20 possible causes for asthma and usually a number of them are present concurrently. Some of the most common and important are:
We have considerable experience and expertise in identifying and correcting imbalances in all of these areas.
These are the result of lowered resistance or a malfunctioning immune system. The most important question here is "Why"? Why didn't one's immune system fight off the cold, flu or infection?
To a large degree, it is not the "germs" (i.e. virus, bacteria, etc.) that caused illness or disease, but rather lowered resistance. There are millions of germs all around, within our bodies and the environment. If "germs" or "something going around" truly caused illness, then everyone that was exposed to it would get sick. Yet, this is simply not the case; some get sick while others do not. The crucial factor is the strength of one's immune system. The cumulative effect of imbalances among the 8 areas of a holistic approach results in lowered resistance and immunity. Properly addressing these areas usually corrects this problem.
Similar to our approach to allergies, we can usually find the underlying causes of sinus problems and eliminate them—rather than trying to suppress the symptoms with medication.
Over-exposure to these mycological agents is a very prevalent problem today with extremely negative effects on health. They can result in a vast array of symptoms and interfere with our body's natural ability to heal and repair.
The main causes of yeast/candida overgrowth are diets high in sugar and refined carbohydrates, antibiotic use, birth control pills, and stress. Molds, to put it simply, are everywhere and especially in the air we breathe, certain foods we eat, ventilation systems, and many apartments and houses.
We utilize advanced, natural techniques to discover and eliminate these problems. Very specific nutritional supplements, which differ from person to person, are required. What really differentiates our approach from so many others is our "desensitization techniques" which greatly increases the body's ability to both to eliminate these substances and resist their negative effects in the future.
We have great success in this area.
