Integrative Medicine Approach to Allergies for Rapid Relief

Posted by on Tue, May 15, 2012

 

Symptoms of Allergies

Do you, or a family member, have a runny nose, sinus congestion, headaches including sinus headaches?  You may be suffering from allergies to  pollens, grasses, molds, dust, cat or dog dander or feathers and may include allergies to foods.   

Non-Invasive, Painless Testing for Allergies

Testing for allergies  is done by electrodermal screening using EDS100 electrodermal test system which is painless, and only involves pressure of the testing device on the correct acupuncture point. The testing is non invasive and involves pressure of the testing device at the base of the thumb for airborne allergies  and the lateral side of the third finger for food allergies.

Testing is ideal for children since it is non-invasive,and uses no needles or injections. The child sits on the lap of the parent and the parent’s sinus point is tested at the base of the thumb to find the neutralizing dilution for airborne allergies and pressure or at  the allergy point on the  third finger, laterally for food allergies.

Integrative Medicine Treatment of Allergies with Customized Allergy Serums

Customized Allergy serums are the treatment for allergies. Treatment is done with allergy drops taken under the tongue taken once a week and not painful injections. The serums cause the immune system to build up blocking antibodies that turn off the allergic response, and may even eliminate the allergy, given an appropriate length of treatment. You can find rapid relief from the symptoms of allergies.
