Although our treatments are not currently covered by insurance programs, our treatments are very affordable compared to the costs of medication, insurance copayments and deductibles, and office visit fees.

Costs for the Initial Allergy Assessments and Treatments vary by location and the number of treatments necessary will depend on the symptoms you are experiencing and the number of allergens contributing to your symptoms. We will be able to determine your treatment plan following your Initial Assessment. Please note that most patients experience some relief after their initial visit. Contact your local AllergiCare clinic to inquire about pricing.

**Please note: If your insurance offers a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) you will be able to apply our services toward that account.

Allergies are a physiological error. The body reacts negatively to harmless substances, foods, or stimuli. The word "allergy" comes from the Greek word "allos" meaning "other". It was first used in 1906 to refer to an "altered reaction" in the body's immune system.

An allergic reaction occurs when the body comes in contact with an allergen. This can occur through contact with the skin, inhalation, injection or ingestion of the substance.

Medical treatment includes: avoidance of the allergen, medications to reduce the symptoms of the allergic reaction or injections to desensitize the patient to the allergen. The medical classification of a "true allergy" requires an IgE-mediated response. However, there are also non-IgE-immune sensitivities as well as involvement with IgA, IgG, or IgG4.

The use of the word "allergy" has become a generic term used by the public to describe allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances. The distinction of a true allergy based on circulating immunoglobulins is generally unknown. Therefore, the term "allergy" is now understood as a term for any negative reaction from exposure to a benign substance.

Thousands of patients have been treated worldwide using the state-of-the-art technology used at AllergiCare Relief Centers and long-term results have been obtained in the vast majority of these patients treated. The success rate is not yet 100% because there are many variables in human physiology and there are also the complexities of allergens. Our body of research is always expanding and the success rate continues to increase.

Some conditions are relatively simple to treat with a very high success rate, such as sinusitis, irritable bowel syndrome, hayfever, lactose sensitivity and wheat sensitivity. Unusual symptoms that are not normally associated with allergy or intolerance can often be treated with good results, such as ADD, ADHD, chronic fatigue syndrome, heat rash, joint pain, hives and more. Asthma is usually improved if the causes are allergies or food sensitivities.

Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can be treated if the causes are allergies or food sensitivities. These conditions can have significant improvement but may be very difficult to eliminate completely.

AllergiCare Relief Centers do not treat cases of anaphylaxis.

Our patients have consistently reported long-term results years after treatment. However, AllergiCare Relief Centers cannot guarantee that new allergies will not be developed in the future. The causes that initiated the original allergy may become a factor in creating new immune errors. In most cases, the results have shown to be long-term.

Patients are advised to seek the most effective treatment for their individual case. Conventional treatment involves avoidance of the allergen, medications to reduce the symptoms of the allergic reaction or injections to desensitize the patient to the allergen.

Avoiding substances which cause allergic reactions may be impossible for many sufferers, as is the case with allergies to airborne pollens, pollution or chemicals in building materials.

For people with multiple allergies/sensitivities, particularly to food, avoidance can have a considerable impact on the patient's quality of life as they can often be heavily restricted to what they can eat.

Drugs such as antihistamines relieve symptoms of the allergy but do not eliminate the cause of the reaction so once the sufferer stops using the drugs, the symptoms typically return. However, many over-the-counter and prescribed medications can be very effective and offer significant relief.

Aside from the short-term nature of drug-based treatment, many people suffer side effects from drugs and long-term effects of drug use on the body are unknown.

Desensitizing the patient to the allergen involves a series of injection over many months and sometimes years.

AllergiCare Relief Centers are able to treat the specific allergy or sensitivity, allowing the patient to be exposed to the substance while relieving allergy symptoms previously suffered and without any side effects that may come with other treatments.

While other allergy therapies are available, the treatments performed at AllergiCare Relief Centers consist of a highly advanced technology that is not replicated anywhere in the world. It is an independent body of research that is the product of over twelve years of research. The success of the treatment is attributed to the extensive knowledge base and in-depth study of allergens, in addition to a global network of health care professionals contributing on-going expertise in the field.

All AllergiCare Relief Centers practitioners are qualified, licensed doctors specially trained in our unique technique in treating allergy symptoms.

All practitioners receive extensive training in the latest technology and are linked with health care professionals worldwide to continually expand the application of the treatment and improve its success rate.

Although controlled studies have not yet been conducted on the treatments we perform, it has been proven by over a decade of consistent results with solid success with tens of thousands of people who have had their allergies/sensitivities completely eliminated.

The treatments we perform are not medical treatments. It has been developed from an entirely different field of therapeutics using the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the study of human physiology and an in-depth knowledge of allergens. Traditional acupuncture has been shown to have significant immune-enhancing effects on multiple medical university studies. Our research team includes medical doctors, acupuncturists, naturopaths and chiropractors.

The treatments performed at AllergiCare Relief Centers can only address conditions caused by inappropriate reactions to harmless substances or stimuli. If the condition involves pathogens, (bacteria, viruses, or parasites) the treatment will not be able to affect such cases.

AllergiCare Relief Centers cannot treat lactose intolerance. If the symptoms are related to an allergy to milk or other dairy products, the treatment can be very effective. However, lactose intolerance is not an allergy, it is the inability to digest certain amounts of lactose, the major sugar found in milk. The condition is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase, which is produced by the cells of the lining in the small intestine. Lactose intolerance is often confused with dairy allergies because the symptoms are similar, yet they are untreated. However, the two conditions can occur together and in such cases, the treatment can offer partial benefit.

While Advanced Allergy and AllergiCare Relief Centers can treat most all forms of allergies or sensitivities, some cases do not respond to the treatment. Allergies can be complicated. For example, a person can have a reaction after eating strawberries, but if treated for strawberries, the symptoms still remain. The true allergy or sensitivity might be to a specific component of strawberries which, when treated, will eliminate the reaction.

Another example is cat allergies. Some people will no longer react when treated specifically to cat dander. Yet others do not respond to the treatment. The key is to find the exact substance that the body is identifying as a threat. For those people who still react to cats after treatment, an additional substance may be contributing, such as glandular oil protein or a specific protein in cat saliva.

Treatment may also be complicated by multiple symptoms, some of which may not be the result of an allergy. In addition, some sufferers have more than one substance contributing to one specific allergy symptom. This compounds the challenge in identifying the correct substance responsible for the reaction. Our network of professionals conduct extensive, on-going research to increase the number of complicated allergies successfully treated.
