Effectively treating allergies for a symptom-free life.
If you suffer from allergies to grasses, pollen, weeds, trees, or dust during the springtime, you are not alone. If you have developed an allergy to meat after a tick bite(aka Alpha Gal), you’ll definitely want to read this!
Allergies can be caused by anything under the sun, including the sun itself. Over 50 million people suffer from allergies in North America. While most western doctors address allergies by suppressing the immune response, eastern medicine works to address the immune system’s allergic response to an allergen.
Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment
I use a protocol called the Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT) to treat allergies of all kinds. The SAAT is a powerful technique that provides the longest relief from allergy symptoms compared to other common treatments. It is a specialized yet simple acupuncture treatment where one needle placed in the ear can drastically reduce allergy symptoms by 80-95%. The treatment addresses allergies or sensitivities to:
- Food: gluten/wheat, soy, dairy, corn, eggs, sugar, meat (Alpha-gal), nuts, fruits, vegetables, shellfish, preservatives, and more.
- Environmental: animal dander, dust, molds, chemicals, pollens, trees, grasses, weeds, and more.
- l also treat Alpha Gal, which can cause a severe allergic reaction to the sugars found in mammal meats. This allergy is growing across the country due to the proliferation of the Lone Star tick that causes it. It is very prevalent in our area, and I see several patients each week that suffer from varying degrees of allergies from this syndrome.
I trained and am certified in SAAT by Dr. Nader Soliman, a pioneer in auricular acupuncture, who has completed years of clinical study on thousands of allergy sufferers. Through his acupuncture method of SAAT, patients experience elimination or considerable reduction in their allergy symptoms. There are currently only 3 acupuncturists in Georgia that are trained in this method, and I am one of them. There isn’t anyone trained in Florida or Alabama so patients come from all over the Southeast for this treatment.
How Does SAAT Work?
SAAT is aimed at completely clearing the immune response to a specific allergen. An allergy is an exaggerated response of the immune system. The SAAT “reprograms” the immune system to stop overreacting to allergens, thus eliminating the negative response.
What we do
Step 1: Identifying the Allergen
You may have identified your allergen(s) through allergy testing or process of elimination. We will confirm that allergy through our bio-energetic testing. Please bring your results of previous testing if you can. If you are unsure of a specific allergy, we can work together to identify the allergen that you are reacting to.
If you suspect you have an unidentified food allergy, keeping a food log or going on an elimination diet helps to identify the food allergens and will make it easier for treatment. If you need help to identify a food allergy, let us know.
Step2: Auricular Allergy Acupuncture
Once the allergen and reactive point in the ear are confirmed, the treatment needle is placed in the ear. ONE tiny needle is placed for a specific allergy with up to 3-4 different allergens being treated at one time. The needle is then covered with medical adhesive tape and worn for 3 weeks while the patient limits the exposure to the allergies being treated (if possible).
The SAAT technique appears to be superior in the treatment of allergies, eliminating allergies regardless of their origin by 80-95%. The benefits of this method include:
- The simplicity of the treatment,
- The minimum duration of treatment,
- Lack of side effects or complications, lack of medication needed and no repeated visits to medical practitioners.
Since SAAT’s introduction, thousands of individuals have been successfully treated and continue to be free of allergies despite repeated exposure to their previous confirmed allergies. This treatment is also likely to eliminate any cross allergies associated with a particular allergen.
After being treated, if symptoms are still present it is most likely due to another unidentified allergy that can often be associated with the first allergy. For example, someone who eats trail mix as a snack could test positive for a nut allergy. We would treat the specific nut allergy and then see how the patient reacts to the trail mix. If symptoms persist, we would then test the other items in the trail mix (dried fruit, seeds, chocolate, etc) to see if there are additional allergies. When 100% of the items in the trail mix are cleared, the symptoms will subside.
It is extremely important to keep in mind that the success of your treatment depends on identifying all the food, environmental or other allergies you may have. Results of treatment are individually specific and can take time depending on the number and severity of allergies you have.
Initial SAAT appointments MUST be made over the phone with the clinic. A phone conversation will help prepare both practitioner and patient for the initial visit.
Soliman Auricular Allergy Initial Consult: The first SAAT session lasts about 60 minutes and consists of a consult and Auricular Allergy Treatment for up to 3 confirmed allergies.
Follow-up treatment will be scheduled for 3 weeks out to test the results and remove the needle(s). This appointment typically lasts just a few minutes.
Follow up Consult with Additional SAAT: In cases where more allergies need to be addressed, a follow-up session will last around 60 minutes and up to 3 more allergies can be treated.
