Hello everyone,

It's been a while since I have posted. Some of you may remember me and my story. I developed severe asthma/allergies 3+ yrs ago and have been struggling for good control. I also had problems with foods triggering my asthma.

I saw a tv show on MTV called "I'm Allergic to Everything" that featured a young lady with idiopathic anaphylaxis from food/additives. She chose alternative medicine and I decided to give it a try. I also know that it may not be for everyone and all may not agree, but it has made of world of difference for me!

Treatment involves: laser treatment to desensitize me to my food/enviroment allergen/sensitivities, chiropractic, acupuncture and kinesiology. I have not used any medications (rescue/maintenance) since August 9, 2011. I have started to add foods back into my diet with great success. I have not felt this good in over 3 yrs. I was able to attend two parties over this past weekend with not problems.

I don't know if it is appropriate to post the dr's name or facility, so if anyone would like more information please e-mail me @ debneric@ptd.net .

I wanted to share my excitement and if I can help 1 person by posting this, it is well worth it.

Wow! That is great! Thanks for sharing. It's nice to read about some good stories.

IMO, whatever works for you is the best treatment. There seem to be so many unknowns when it comes to allergies and their treatment. I'm so glad to hear that you found something that is working so well for you.
