Food sensitivities are frequently ignored by the medical community due to the lack of effective medical therapies. They are a leading cause of hypoglycemia, bloating after meals, sinus congestion, fatigue and chronic bowel disturbances.

Environmental allergies manifest as frequent sneezing, itchy eyes/nose, chronic nasal congestion and post nasal drip. They typically occur in the spring and/or fall. Antihistamines, while effective, typically cause unwanted side effects.

We offer several types of desensitization that cover both environmental and food allergies as well as sensitivities. Usually one or a combination of the following will be successful in getting you well:

Immunotherapy:

Refers to your traditional allergy shots. This time-honored method is the primary tool offered by most physicians in treating most IgE mediated environmental and food allergies.

Low Dose Allergen Immunotherapy:

LDA (Low Dose Allergen) therapy is a form of immunotherapy that uses a minute dose of beta glucuronidase to help allergens stimulate T Regulator cells. These cells help in switching off the allergic response you may be having to certain foods or environmental agents. Since these T Reg cells live a long time in the body, the LDA shots are only given every two months and then even less often as time passes.

BioSET:

Is a series of acupressure treatments pioneered by Dr Ellen Cutler. It is very effective at eliminating both food sensitivities and environmental allergies, but not anaphylactic reactions. Dr. Patel works with local BioSET Practitioners with much success.
