How do you test for allergies and sensitivities?

Our clinic can test IgE and IgG food sensitivity reactions through the blood. While we  do offer these tests, our patients prefer our novel approach as this doesn’t add extra expense.

At Advanced Allergy, our technology does not test or diagnose allergies directly- we test the nervous system’s perception of different substances and whether it is ‘stressed’ by a substance or ‘not stressed’ by a substance.   We use an FDA approved biofeedback machine that creates a digital signal mimicking your allergy or sensitivity.  The digital signal of the ‘allergen’ is not strong enough to stimulate an allergy  reaction or anaphylaxis.

We know that you are ‘stressed’ by a substance as this causes temporary muscle weakness that will be apparent to you and our staff (a form of Applied Kinesiology).  You will be amazed at how your body reacts when we identify a cause of your symptoms.

What do you test for?

We are able to test for over 120,000 substances bundled into over 100 categories of foods, environmental substances, and body chemistry-related substances.

For example: The “Dairy Products” category contains over 113 types of dairy including various proteins and minerals while the “Grasses and Weeds” category contains over 206 varieties that may be affecting you.

Some of the common irritants our patients inquire about:

  • All types of foods: wheat, dairy, sugar corn, nightshades, gluten/gliadin and many more.
  • All types of chemicals in foods: sulfates, nitrates, histamines, oxalates and more.
  • All types of airborne substances: pollens, weeds, trees, animal dander, pollution and more.
  • Various stimuli: sunlight, motion sickness, wind and barometric pressure.

My medical allergy tests said I was fine to an allergen but I know I suffer from it, can you check?

Yes. If your nervous system is responding negatively to a specific substance, chances are very high that we will not only be able to find it, but also help calm your nervous system to no longer respond negatively to it any longer.

How does the ‘treatment’ work?

Our nervous system has significant ‘say’ in whether our immune system over-reacts to a substance or not.  By using modern pain-free techniques like Vagus Nerve Stimulation and cold laser, we train your nervous system to calm its stress response thereby quelling the allergy symptoms associated with it.

What will you do during my ‘treatment’?

Each treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and is safe and non-invasive.

We start by using an FDA approved device that creates a digital signal mimicking your allergy or sensitivity.  Your body will recognize the allergen but the signal is not strong enough to stimulate an allergic response.

Next, we relax your nervous system by running a soothing percussion device along your back along with a sequence of breathing patterns.  This stimulates the Vagus nerve and helps keep your body in the parasympathetic state (rest, digest and heal).

Finally, we use our class IIIA cold laser to increase endorphins in your central and peripheral nervous systems.

Is this treatment safe?

100% safe because we aren’t exposing clients to the actual proteins or trigger substances in their allergens – just the digital biofeedback signal.

You are not ingesting, breathing, or having any substance pass a body barrier therefore you will not have an allergic reaction.

How many treatments does it take and how soon until I feel better?

The amount of treatments needed varies from person to person and is based upon how many allergies/sensitivities you are experiencing and their severity.  The length of time you’ve experienced symptoms and  your overall health are also determining factors.

Mild condition/children- 5-15 treatments

Moderate condition- 15-25 treatments

Severe condition- 25-35+ treatments

Regarding how soon you will feel better? This is the hardest question for us to answer.  Generally speaking, most patients experience a reduction in symptoms within the first 5-10 treatments. This typically means that you are a ‘responder’ to our therapy. Continued improvement should follow.

How often do I need to come in for treatments?

The most we can provide is two treatments in one day and there has to be a four hour window between treatments. Your schedule and budget determine how often you can come in.

Out-of-town clients will be with us twice a day, every day until they leave. Local clients also have that option. You can come in once a day, once a week or even once a month until all your stressors are cleared up. We don’t recommend going more than 1 month between treatments.

How should I feel after my treatments?

Most people don’t feel any different after a treatment, however some (10%) may experience fatigue that will subside after a nap or good night’s sleep.

Very rarely (1%), a patient may feel a short worsening of their symptoms and/or mildly ill similar to if they were detoxifying (aches, pains, headache, loose stool). This effect passes within 24-48 hours.

These are all signs that your body is responding to our therapy and adjusting to a new “normal.”

Can children and infants be treated?

Absolutely! The older we get the more sensitivities and symptoms we typically develop.

In fact, we work with moms (using a modified protocol) during pregnancy and just after delivery.  So, if we get children early enough in life we can dramatically improve their quality of life.

Do you guarantee my results?

We wish we could. Unfortunately, there are too many variables out of our control that can cause people to develop new or re-occurring allergies such as drugs, medication, dietary habits, lifestyle, illnesses, etc.

Can you treat people that are anaphylactic?

We do not treat anaphylaxis. We have treated and received positive feedback from patients that are anaphylactic to certain allergens, strictly for accidental exposure and in attempt to reduce symptoms to other allergens.

Can you completely cure allergies?

The proper answer is “no” and every physician should reply to you with this answer. Through the steps we utilize in our clinic you can certainly gain health and reduce or eliminate your allergy symptoms! Please read and watch some testimonials of what our past patients have experienced.

Is this covered by insurance?

Advanced Allergy Relief & Wellness Center does not contract with an insurance company. However, for those who have out of network benefits, you may be able to file for reimbursement on the initial consultation as well as for our treatments. If you have an FSA or HSA, you should be able to apply our services towards this.

Do I need to change my lifestyle?

What a great question!  The answer depends entirely on how you are currently living your life through diet, nutrition and exercise. We highly recommend that you do the best you can by eliminating genetically modified foods, eating organic, doing regular detox work, exercising and maintaining a positive outlook in life. We will be happy to advise you on these issues and steps in much more detail during your time at Advanced Allergy. Please note, the above advice is recommended but not necessary for our treatment to have a positive impact on your life.
