The treatment is safe, painless and available to patients of all ages including infants.

How the Treatment Works

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics works directly with the relationships between the major organ systems and inappropriate reactions to harmless substances. While the immune system is responsible for initiating an immune reaction in the case of true allergies, it is the health and state of the organ systems that often determines the type of symptoms that may arise. With both sensitivities and allergies, symptoms typically stem from the organ system affected. For example, one patient may have a reaction to soybean by getting rashes while another patient may react with sinus congestion, heartburn or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The symptoms in each of these cases represent a different organ system involved. By treating the organ system(s) involved in a reaction, the body is able to respond more appropriately.

During treatment, gentle pressure is used on points that correspond with the organ systems involved in a reaction. The degree of stress on the organ systems caused by an allergen or offending agent, is proportional to the degree of the negative reaction. While the stimulation is applied, a subtle representation of the offending substance is introduced to the surface of the skin. The stimulation reduces the stress on the effected organ system, allowing for a more appropriate response.

All holistic fields of medicine are aligned in the approach to treat the whole body. They share the understanding that health conditions may develop as a result of interference in proper functioning caused by various forms of stress or other factors. Reducing the stress or interference allows for optimal health. When the specific organ system is supported and stress is reduced, the whole body is able to respond more appropriately.

What Allergies Cannot Be Treated and Why?

Treatments at Allergy Solutions of Indiana can only address conditions caused by inappropriate reactions to harmless substances or stimuli. If the condition involves pathogens, (bacteria, viruses or parasites) the treatment will not be able to affect such cases.

We cannot treat lactose intolerance. If the symptoms are related to an allergy to milk or other dairy products, the treatment can be very effective. However, lactose intolerance in not an allergy, it is the inability to digest certain amounts of lactose, the major sugar found in milk. The condition is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase, which is produced by the cells of the lining in the small intestine. Lactose intolerance is often confused with dairy allergies because the symptoms are similar, yet they are unrelated. However, the two conditions can occur together and in such cases, treatment can offer partial benefit.

While Allergy Solutions of Indiana can treat the many symptoms associated with allergies or sensitivities, some cases do not respond to the treatment.

The treatment may also be complicated by multiple symptoms, some of which may not be the result of an allergy. In addition, some sufferers have more than one substance contributing to one specific allergy symptom. This compounds the challenge in identifying the correct substance responsible for the reaction.

Have The Treatments Been Medically Proven?

Services and treatments at Allergy Solutions of Indiana are not medical treatments. The treatment protocol has been developed from an entirely different field of therapeutics using the principles of traditional acupuncture. However, multiple scientific studies on acupuncture and acupressure stimulation have shown specific biological effects that contribute to a relaxed state, such as a release in endogenous opioids and oxytocin, which also seem to be essential in the induction of functional changes of different organ systems. Studies also show a release in endorphins which resemble the opiates in their abilities to produce analgesia and a feeling of well-being.

Additionally, studies have shown that manual nerve stimulation can also give a sustained reduction in blood pressure. Alterations in blood pressure and heart rate are general results of sympathetic tone changes and patients with essential hypertension have shown reductions in blood pressure when treated with acupuncture.*

The measurable effects of acupuncture and acupressure in the reduction of biological stress provide scientific evidence of the mechanism involved in the effectiveness of our method.

How Long Will The Result Last?

For over fifteen years, patients have consistently reported long-term results. However, Allergy Solutions of Indiana cannot guarantee that symptoms won't recur or that new allergies or sensitivities will not develop in the future.

Why Should Allergy Sufferers Choose Allergy Solutions of Indiana

Patients are advised to seek the most effective treatment for their case. Conventional treatment involves avoidance of the allergen, medications to reduce the symptoms of the allergic reaction or injections to desensitize the patient to the allergen.

Drugs such as antihistamines may relieve symptoms of the allergy. Many over-the-counter and prescribed medications can be very effective and offer significant relief.

Desensitizing the patient to the allergen involves a series of injections over a long-term period.

Avoiding substances that cause allergic reactions may be impossible for many sufferers, as is the case with allergies to airborne pollens, pollution or chemicals in building materials. For people with multiple allergies/sensitivities, particularly to food, avoidance can have a considerable negative impact on the patient's quality of life, as they can often be heavily restricted to what they can eat.

Allergy Solutions of Indiana offers effective relief from symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities without the need for avoidance or the use of herbal or homeopathic remedies or special diets.

What is an Allergy

Allergies are a physiological error. The body reacts negatively to harmless substances, foods or stimuli. The word "allergy" comes from the Greek allos, meaning "other". It was first used in 1906 to refer to an "altered reaction" in the body's immune system.

An allergic reaction occurs when the body comes in contact with the allergen. This can occur through contact with the skin, inhalation, injection or ingestion of the substance.

The use of the word "allergy" has become a generic term used by the public to describe allergies, sensitivities and intolerances. The distinction of a true allergy based on immunoglobulin involvement is generally unknown. Therefore, the term "allergy" is often understood as a term for any negative reaction from exposure to a benign substance. We treat the symptoms caused by any negative or inappropriate reaction regardless if the symptoms are caused by allergies or sensitivities.

How soon will I see results?

Many cases respond quickly to the treatment and achieve long-term results with the first treatment. However, each case is different and some patients require additional treatments.

What are the most common symptoms addressed in the clinic?

Bloating, cramping, reflux, heartburn, gas, diarrhea, nausea, runny nose, sneezing, congestion, post-nasal drip, itchy watery eyes, coughs, wheezing, shortness of breath, red, scaly or itchy rashes, blisters with oozing and crusting, dry leathery skin areas, hives, itchy skin, hyperactivity, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, tiredness, chemical sensitivities, reactions to the sun, any negative reaction to harmless substances.

How many sessions are needed?

The number of sessions required depends on the number of items causing a reaction. For example, a patient who reacts to five families of substances (dairy, wheat, corn, animal dander and pollen) may require between 5 or more sessions to relieve the symptoms or resolve a condition.

Is there an age restriction for the treatments?

No. All ages may be treated, including infants.

How long do I have to wait before I can have contact with the items that were addressed in my session?

Following a session, a patient should avoid the substance that was treated for 2 hours, if possible. Depending on the item addressed, avoidance is not always possible. It is recommended that the patient not have excessive contact with the item until the following day.

Can I have more than one treatment in a day?

Yes. Two treatments can be completed in one day. However, there must be at least 2 hours between sessions.

How long are the sessions?

The Initial Session takes approximately 60 minutes and includes an assessment and one treatment. Follow-Up Sessions take 30 minutes and include one treatment.

Do I need to stop taking any of my medications before the treatment?

No, patients do not need to stop taking medication that has been prescribed by a medical doctor. You may continue taking over the counter medication to control current symptoms, as this will not affect the treatment.

Are any traditional medical allergy tests offered in the clinic?

We do not offer any conventional allergy testing. Patients are encouraged to bring in allergy tests from their physicians.

Are there any guarantees that my symptoms will be relieved?

Unfortunately, we can offer no guarantees; however, the majority of our patients respond favorably to the treatment on a long-term basis. We cannot guarantee that new symptoms will not develop in the future.

Can a food intolerance be treated?

No. A food intolerance is different from an allergy or sensitivity in that there may be an enzyme deficiency, which inhibits the body from properly digesting the substance. Such cases are not affected by the treatment.

Can you treat for anaphylactic symptoms?

No. We do not treat conditions involving anaphylactic reactions. However, patients with an anaphylactic reaction may be treated for other sensitivities that are not life threatening.
