What exactly is an allergy? An allergy is simply an inappropriate response from your body to a normally harmless substance. For example, two people eat eggs for breakfast. The eggs are cooked together in the same pan with all the same ingredients. Both people sit down to eat them at the same time in the same room and finish eating at the same time. However, one person has a reaction and the other person does not. So was it the egg that caused the problem? No – it was the body’s reaction to the egg that caused the problem.
Traditionally, people treat the symptoms of these reactions to certain foods or pollutants (allergies) by taking pill after pill, shot after shot for years. They get temporary relief of symptoms, but no long term relief. You may feel you are doomed to suffer with these reactions the rest of your life, but there is hope. We offer a therapy that can help eliminate your need for daily or weekly treatments and provided long-term relief. It is called Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy (NSRT), and it uses an FDA cleared device for consistent, needle-free and effective treatment. This device is called the BAX-Aura and it can actually “re-program” your system to not have the negative reaction any longer, so that the next time you eat an egg you will not have the reaction again.
There is a direct correlation between stress and allergy symptoms. Recent research shows that general stress can cause symptoms of allergic reactions to be twice as severe. Histamine production is significantly greater when the individual is under stress. Reducing stress significantly reduces the expression of allergy symptoms. The Bax -Aura tests your body’s reaction to substances and helps identify the emotional stressors that cause the reaction. Using light therapy on acupuncture points, your stress is decreased, and in that scope provides a benefit to patients suffering from allergy symptoms.
