Allergy therapy

Allergy therapy may be particularly helpful for a number of health issues which include food intolerancehayfever,  chemical or environmental sensitivities,  Candida ,  hyperactivity, eczema, psoriasis, ME and irritable bowel to name but a few.  Many non-specific symptoms may be relieved using our treatment.  Following testing, you will be offered a variety of possible treatments dependent on your specific needs.  These may include, herbal and nutritional advice, homeopathic de-sensitisation or hypnotherapy.
Muscle testing was chosen after evaluation of all other available techniques as the most suitable of all methods of detecting allergy for a number of reasons. It is completely safe to use, the results are immediate and the patient becomes involved right from the start. It is painless and can be used to test the elderly, arthritics, small children and babies.


The remedies that are used in the treatment method are prepared by homeopathic pharmaceutical techniques and can be used safely and effectively by both therapist and patient. They are totally unrelated and dissimilar to the desensitisation injections which are usually given for hayfever in hospital clinics. The treatment is given by mouth and is free from side effects, involves no restrictive diets and is very acceptable to patients.


Whilst it is appreciated that there are many forms of allergy testing available, few therapists are able to offer treatment other than total avoidance of the suspected allergen. This is not difficult if the offending substance happens to be pheasant, lobster or yams for example, but can the patient be absolutely certain of avoiding preservatives, additives, food colourings, wheat, soya, eggs etc? And it is not a very practical solution if the offending allergen happens to be pollen, car exhaust fumes, house dust mites or formaldehyde. Few patients are sufficiently knowledgeable about nutrition to be able to exclude, for example, wheat and all dairy products from a child's diet and replace them with foods that will provide all the vitamins, minerals, and trace elements a growing child needs. As one Doctor so rightly put it recently "I have never seen so many cases of malnutrition as a result of dieting to relieve an allergy problem!"  Desensitisation whenever possible would seem to be preferable.


The Institute was formed in January 1987 to bring together a group of allergy practitioners all of whom had undergone the same course of instruction and who practise allergy therapy in a similar way, using muscle testing as a means of detecting allergy, and Isopathic desensitization (sometimes called neutralisation) as a means of treating it.  I have been an allergy therapist for 25 years and have qualifications in diet and nutrition, anatomy and physiology and hypnotherapy which add to my understanding of whatever issues may arise.   My experience includes working with new born babies, children of all ages through to very mature adults and a variety of animals.
Treatments are offered  in Amersham.  (Home visits available for animal consultations.)


"We consider the patient's welfare to be of prime importance and for this reason in general we will only supply desensitizing remedies via therapists who have received instruction in their use and who undertake to provide the necessary support to their patients throughout the treatment."
