An intolerance refers to a non-immune system response ranging from a minor irritation to an extreme reaction. The substance in which our body reacts to, which is generally non-threatening, is viewed by our body as a threat to our general well being. There are a host of substances that you may react with.
A Medical Allergist’s definition of allergy: “a reaction to an otherwise harmless substance, food or environmental, that results in an immune system response”. This reaction consists of the release of histamine, leading to an inflammatory reaction.
We define an allergy as any abnormal bodily reaction to a given substance.
Based on an ancient Chinese belief that energy runs through the body in pathways called "meridians" acupuncture is now a widely recognized health related modality. It is through these bio-energetic meridians that the brain and nervous system receive information about the state and functioning of the body as a whole. Modern electro magnetic imaging devices and radioactive tracer isotopes have confirmed the presence of these pathways.
Laser acupuncture is used transmit a low electronic frequency directly onto various acupuncture points (without the use of needles) on the body to stimulate and clear any blockages in energy. While the blockages are clearing, the body's cells are literally being reprogrammed to recognize the allergen's frequency. When this non-invasive and painless procedure is complete, the body will no longer see the allergen or intolerance as a threat when exposed to it; therefore, no longer producing any adverse reactions.
When the body has been freed of an intolerance or allergy to which it has been exposed to in the past, any damaged tissues will begin to break down and reabsorb back into the body. The odd headache, sore throat, sinus congestion, tired or lethargic feeling, aches and pains or even nausea are all usually signs of the body regenerating new cells and cleansing itself. This is known as a "healing crisis". A healing crisis can start the day after the session up to 3 weeks in some cases, and may last from 1 to 28 days. In fact, they may appear to be getting sick. This is actually a good sign, not a bad one. The body is merely re-experiencing the same symptoms, temporarily, as it now returns on the uphill road, throwing off and eliminating toxic wastes.
It is much easier to regulate ingested sensitivities, rather than that of environmental sensitivities due to the fact that there are literally thousands of potential environmental allergens that one can inhale or absorb through the skin. However, there are potentially hundreds of chemical food additives we can ingest as well. Most people find immediate results after the first visit, while others require several visits to detect and remove all suspect causes, particularly if an individual has many intolerances. In extreme cases, those with severe intolerances have reported a 4 to 6 week period lapse after their session before feeling complete relief of their symptoms. In some cases, due to toxic overload, we recommend a gentle cleanse to help support our clients during this process.
It often requires up to 2 sessions to rebalance an individual for up to several substances. Approximately 75% to 80% of intolerances can be rebalanced during the first session. However, depending on the degree of intolerance, and stress level of the client, amount of bodily toxins and the strength of the person’s immune system, others may require subsequent sessions. Once the intolerance is removed, you will most likely never experience symptoms from the same substance again.
We help to rebalance a person to life threatening (anaphylactic) allergy symptoms as well; however, we require you to seek approval from your medical doctor/allergist before you ingest, inhale or expose yourself to any substance to which you have been previously diagnosed as anaphylactic. It is a common occurrence to show a more severe reaction from your scratch, intradermal or RAST test from your doctor after your session with us. For our observations, we predicate that this is merely due to one of two reasons:
We suggest having your medical doctor's allergy test at least 8 months after your sessions with us. (A minimum of 3-4 separate sessions are required in cases of anaphylaxis).
Acupuncture is done with extremely thin flexible needles made of stainless steel and silver alloy. There is nothing 'special' about the needle; it is a tool to balance body energy. There is sometimes a brief pain as the needle passes through the skin.
No one really knows. As theories evolve from generation to generation, the secret behind acupuncture will not easily be solved. For this reason, it will remain a mystery for many generations to come.
There are three main things that acupuncture can do for you. These are pain relief from all sorts of different kinds of pain that the body can produce, preventing the pain from coming back into the body and heal the body from the pain.
Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing. The earliest acupuncture books were written 4,500 years ago. Acupuncture began with the discovery that the stimulation of specific areas of the skin affected the functioning of certain organs of the body. It evolved into a system of healing as the connection between the skin and organs became better understood leading to more sensitive methods of stimulation.
Low back pain is the area that we specialize in. Through the insertion of needles at various points in the body the body relieves that pain in the lower back by balancing the energy flows.
Energy blockages in the back cause pain and by clearing these blockages the pain stops. At the same time, we strengthen the immune enhancing points! This immune enhancing technique helps to strengthen the body's immunity - which is extremely important in today's society as we are exposed to many viruses.
Widely used in China for many years to prevent the onset of wrinkles and facial lines, Cosmetic Acupuncture increases the blood and energy flow to specific facial areas to hydrate, plump up and boost the supply of nutrients and oxygen to them.
No. Generally, the treatment should last for three to five years, at which time you would need to revisit your acupuncturist. The better you take care of yourself, the better the results.
10 sessions, twice every week for five weeks.
Cosmetic acupuncture is contraindicated in some pituitary disorders, heart disorders, hypertension, pregnancy, onset of an acute herpes attack, individuals who have a pacemaker and individuals who have a problem with bleeding or bruising.
There are no negative side effects. A client may experience bruising for a day or two but these should fade away naturally.
There are many remedies that we can give to you once we have determined what your problems are. These remedies can be composed of herbs and physical activities. Also, we will be making recommendations of foods that you should try to wean off.
Yes. Psychological stress can also be determined using iridology. For example, we could determine whether or not you currently have fear and anxiety or, perhaps, you’re irritable and depressed.
This is truly nature’s gift to us. Through the study of your eyes, we can determine ailments that you have received 20 years ago to present day to 20 years into the future.

Usually ½ an hour to a full hour is sufficient for us to go through everything that we have found with you.
For many years, we thought that the foods we were eating were healthy. By most parent standards, it was. We rarely ate out and we bought our foods from the closest grocery stores. However, after enrolling in this nutrition program, we discovered a whole lot of wrong in what we were putting into our daily meals. We have since revamped our entire kitchen contents and feel great! We have increased our energy levels just from the foods that we eat. We are now ready to pass on that information to others.
A holistic nutritionist can provide numerous services to you. Among them are:
If you follow our program of when and what to eat, you may find pounds shedding off your body. The food that we recommend does not involve dieting but rather just commitment to changes in lifestyle.
