Allergies can be more than just IgE reactions (respiratory, anaphylactic, hives). In fact, I find that most people complaining of allergic symptoms have reactions to foods and environmental components that are not from the IgE immune reactions. Whether the ‘allergies’ are cat dander, pollen, foods, dust etc. three things really help. For seasonal runny nose, watery eyes, we often use a ‘pre-histamine’. Antihistamines break down histamines after they have wreaked havoc. Pre-histamines stabilize mast cells to minimize the reactive release of histamines, stopping the process and most people report they feel great. For other reactions, we use a process similar to NAET, that stimulates acupoints in the presence of the allergen to ‘reprogram’ you to not react. It is amazingly effective. Lastly, for some people, we do lab testing to identify which foods cause reactions.
