Did you know that there are other ways to deal with allergies besides prescription or over-the-counter medications? One of the first things that many people overlook (or choose to ignore) when dealing with mild to moderate allergies is that many times it is easy to remove the allergen from your home or your life…problem mostly solved. A certain food you eat for example, or a pet if you are allergic to animals (sorry pet lovers…sometimes you have to choose between your health and your pet). Severe allergies are more difficult to deal with. However, in most allergy cases, removing the allergen as much as possible combined with natural remedies can greatly reduce a person’s allergic reaction and sometimes even eliminate it.
The Institute of Chiropractic and Acupuncture Therapy uses various techniques for allergy identification and treatment, including NAET and ASERT, acupuncture, computerized allergy testing and personalized homeopathic remedies. There are many alternatives to addressing allergies and sensitivities that do not involve drugs or medications! Types of allergies that we can treat are food allergies, seasonal allergies and hay fever, and allergies to pets and other animals.
NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques) and ASERT (Allergy/Sensitivity Elimination and Reprograming Technique) are holistic allergy treatments that utilize acupuncture therapy and other hands on techniques to help desensitize allergies.
The computerized allergy testing scans for many different allergies and sensitivities. With that information we are then able to recommend appropriate homeopathic remedies, nutritional and herbal supplements that will help reduce allergies and improve the body’s response to the environment.
