"The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care

  of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation will take approximately 1-1.5 hours including filling in the necessary forms and also includes the first treatment.

Muscle Response Testing

Muscle response testing is used to determine what allergies are present. The patient holds a small vial in his/her hand and the practitioner presses on his/her arm. When a patient is allergic to a substance, a strong muscle will weaken in response to a message from the brain. This is one method to evaluate how the nervous system influences the muscle function in the presence of an irritant.


Pressure points are stimulated along the spine then specific acupuncture points are needled. The needles should remain in place for 20 minutes. In the case of small children or people uncomfortable with needles, acupressure may be used instead.

The allergen must then be avoided for a minimum of 25 hours.

The allergens are treated and cleared in a specific order and normally one item is treated per session. There are 15 basic items (nutrients) that must be cleared before moving on to the specific allergies of each patient. This is to ensure the patient's immune system is strong enough for the treatments of the specific allergens to hold.

Usually, it will take only one session to clear each allergen, although in cases of extreme sensitivity, more than one session per allergen may be required.
