Allergy Clinic


The Allergy Clinic runs from November to February. Allergies seem to affect more and more people in today’s developed world. This is possibly due to the use of antibiotics and a food chain that has lost its way. Signs of allergies can manifest from a young age or later in life and allergies can be mild or severe in response to foods, pollen’s, dust or food components. Signs and symptoms vary from sneezing, itchy skin/mucous membranes, high eosinophils in the blood, digestive disturbances including bloating, discomfort, wind, irregular and erratic bowel movements. Many of these symptoms are uncomfortable and annoying but can also become life threatening if the allergy is severe enough to produce an anaphalactic reaction. More commonly they can simply affect our quality of life especially if antihistamines cannot do the job alone. Herbal medicines and nutraceuticals are very effective at treating not only the symptoms but also addressing the underlying causes of allergic reactions. Once you start exploring natural remedies for allergies you will find they become part of your treatment arsenal. We can help you start to treat the underlying mechanisms that research has shown contribute to allergies.  By working with us in clinic we can help determine what those factors are for you.

Our Allergy Clinic also utilises testing to help identify your triggers as well as look at your particular melody of signs & symptoms which may include stress, energy or digestive problems. By utilising testing we can discover the things you might be reacting to and slowly eliminate the majority of those. We then address the underlying factors with diet and supplements. . As we see you in follow ups, we see what works for you and we are able to paint you a picture of how to look after your atopic symptoms.

If  we don’t remove potential allergens form our diet and environment then this can burden the immune system. Our energy starts to slowly dip and we find that we start reacting to more and more things leading to chronic inflammation and reliance on medications. This also means that our body is using valuable energy defending ourselves. Left untreated allergies can manifest into Asthma or Eczema and become chronic. Stress can tip that balance and aggravate our symptoms. What started off as a genetic tendency for atopic reactions {nature} plus an altered microbiome {nurture} ends up destroying the friendly interplay of our immune system. Discover how to nurture your hypersensitive immune system by booking in for the Allergy Clinic:

  • 1 hour appointment ~ We go over your symptoms and talk about any testing you may need to embark on your journey. We start with herbs and supplements that can help alleviate your symptoms and we assess your underlying factors.
  • 45 minute follow up ~ You then go away and start the treatments and come back when the test results have arrived. We then start you on an elimination process to see if this provides you with a deeper kind of relief. We also address the underlying factors be it stress, digestion or  immunity.
  • 30 minute follow up ~ Further changes to your diet and lifestyle take longer to implement and if things are going well a maintenance plan can be made. For others, time and patience may require that you work on it for longer to get the desired results.
  • 15 minute follow up ~ From here we make a long term plan and decide what will help keep your allergies away.

Follow up appointments can be made in order to further track your progress.

All appointments involve a referral to a medical practitioner if necessary.
