Q:

Thank you, Denise ! that's m ore info than I've eveer gotten before. I'd like to get the intro Groupon coupon now. however, if this will turn into follow-up sessions @ $95. per, iIprobably can't continue. I've retired, and am living on Social Security. Even tho I'm in senior subsudised housing (per rotary Club), my budget doesn't allow for much private medical care, I'm w/ Kaiser & Medicare, neither great coverage. As I'm hard-of-hearing, w/ a hearing aide & a cochlear implant, phones are difficult. However, let's try ! My tel. # is (415) 332-3263. what's yours? I'll be out much of Thurs; maybe Fri will work. I'll go ahead & buy the coupon, trusting that something good will come of this w/in the time period that i can afford. I've wanted for years to find a "reputable" naturalpath"; maybe you're IT ! joan

Q:

How many people approach AAT who are also acne sufferers? I have a moderate amount of acne and believe there is a connection between what we put into our bodies and what comes out which is why I've made various modifications to my diet in the past 2 months. However, I know that many dermatologists deny a diet/acne connection and wanted to know how accepting of this approach AAT is (because a food allergy test would make my life a lot easier =) ). Thanks.

Megan D.  asked on  Nov 16, 2011

A:

Good question! Many people come in with acne and often food can be a contributing factor with their skin. After the first session you will know which foods are stressing your body. You can then chose to change your diet and observe any changes with your skin or have treatments for the foods you are showing reactive to. This may improve your skin but we can not guarantee any results. Acne may not be 100% due to food allergies, so to be clear, we will be addressing the allergy component of the condition. If the practitioner thinks other things are contributing we will refer you on. I am happy to discuss your case specifically if you would like. Please ask for Denise at 415.556.4700. Warm regards, Denise Wood Clinical Director

HI Denise, Is this therapy called bio set? Thanks, melissa Please feel free to call me 415 377 7946

Melissa P.  asked on  Nov 16, 2011

A:

Hi Melissa, No this is not Bio Set. We use a technique called AAT or Advanced Allergy Therapeutics. I will give you a call in a couple of minutes to discuss your son's case. Thanks, Denise

Q:

My son Lukas, age, 6, has excema and has had it since he was a baby. He is allergic to dust mites. We have done multiple allergy and food sensativity tests adn have been to every kind of practise around the globe. WE know if he eats eggs he itches, and we have recently taken him off gluton. Can you help desensitize his allergy to dust mites, etc... Hs your therapy helped to alleviate excema in patients? The dermatologist says we jsut have to treat hsi excema, that it may never go away. Thanks, Melissa Plotts 415-377-7946

Hi Melissa, Thank you for your inquiry. We treat children of all ages and eczema is one of the most common conditions we see and help. Your son will be assessed for multiple foods and airbornes on the first appointment, which will be about 40 different items. The session will also include at treatment of one allergen family. An example of a family is Dust Mites. Most of the time the allergen is cleared after one treatment. As you've noted, foods can also contribute to his symptoms so we always see which foods are contributing too. For example, he will be assessed for eggs, wheat, dairy, sugar, chocolate, preservatives, yeast, corn and soy. The airbornes we assess are pollens, trees, grass, weeds, dust, dust mites, mold, cats and dogs. For the first appointment one allergen family is treated and each following appointment another allergen family is addressed. Please let me know if there is anything else I can answer for you. Warm regards, Denise Wood Clinical Director

Q:

1.) I'm interested. However, I need to know more about who "the practitioners" are, and what background education & training they have. Please send that info, while your groupon is still available. 2.) . I'm a Physical Therapist w/ a 50 yr career. I also have chronic eczema, getting worse w/ age. I had a series of acupuncture Rx 6 yrs ago, which had no effect. A dozen dermatologists, over years, haven't done any effective Dx work, other than in early 2011 (at my insistence) a biopsy of 1 of the lesions. Report: " you seem to be reacting to something, either medicine or environmental"...w/ no follow-up. not much help ! Several allergy tests thru the past years have shown nothing either. what do you think ? Joan

joan p.  asked on  Nov 16, 2011

A:

Hello Joan, Thank you for your interest. Eczema is one of the most common conditions we address at the clinic. It is not uncommon for people to have had allergy tests show no allergies when they are having allergic conditions like eczema. We are assessing if the body is stressed by specific foods and airbornes. This allows us to detect when the body is reacting to a substance when allergy tests do not pick up a histamine reaction or an IG level in the blood. At the first appointment you would be assessed for about 40 different items including both foods and airbornes. You will then have a treatment for one of the allergen families. Examples of different food allergen families are wheat, dairy, eggs, soy and corn. Examples of different airborne allergen families are grasses, molds, dust mites, cats and dogs. As I'm sure you know, eczema can have multiple factors contributing to it. We address the allergy aspect of the condition. It most likely will be more than one treatment to see results, especially when someone has had it for many years. All of our practitioners are Licensed Acupuncturists except for myself, the Clinical Director and Owner, I am an Australian trained Naturopath. Please let me know if I can answer anything else for you. If you would like to discuss your case specifically please call the clinic at 415.556.4700 and ask for Denise. Warm regards, Denise Wood Clinical Director
