Allergies

What are allergies?

Allergies are exaggerated reactions of the immune system to substances or compounds that should normally be tolerated by the body. Examples of allergens include pollen (causing hay fever), dust mites (causing dust mite allergy), food, synthetic substances (such as perfume), metals (causing nickel allergy), and many more. Pollen and food allergies are particularly common.

Allergies can trigger an immediate response in the body (sneezing, teary eyes, difficulty breathing) or cause delayed symptoms. In the case of food allergies, both immediate and delayed reactions are often observed. Especially the symptoms that appear several hours to days later are often nonspecific (such as abdominal pain, skin rashes, headaches), making it difficult for patients to associate them with specific foods.

A significant role in the development and maintenance of allergies is played by chronic masked allergies to wheat and cow's milk proteins, which the patient is often unaware of. Treating these two central allergies can significantly reduce the body's predisposition to allergies. This is especially important for individuals with multiple allergies, as the traditional allergy treatment (immunotherapy against individual substances) often does not effectively address the multitude of allergies.

Furthermore, there is evidence that infection with certain viruses can be significant in the development of allergies. Here, appropriate diagnostics and therapy to address viral burden can positively influence the outcome of allergy treatment.

How is the diagnosis and treatment of allergies conducted?

Sometimes the patient's descriptions already provide a clear indication of an allergy. However, in many cases, the symptoms can only be attributed to specific allergens through diagnostics. Skin tests (such as the prick test), blood tests (especially for delayed-onset food allergies), and bioenergetic testing methods (particularly for individuals with multiple allergies, chronic masked allergies, or viral burdens) are available for this purpose. Occasionally, provocation tests are also required, but these are usually conducted in hospitals or specialized clinics.

In addition to symptomatic treatment of allergies for symptom relief, specific treatment aims to prevent the progression of allergies and ideally eliminate the allergic reaction permanently. If there are only a few clearly diagnosed allergies (such as birch, grasses, or dust mites), allergen immunotherapy can be a promising treatment option. This involves gradually desensitizing the body to the allergen over a period of usually 3 to 5 years through regular administration of the allergen, often via monthly injections.

However, complex allergic conditions (such as atopic dermatitis) are often challenging to treat successfully through allergen immunotherapy. This is because the number of treatable allergens is limited in this approach, and only the allergens that have been previously identified can be targeted. In such cases, after appropriate bioenergetic testing, the use of bioresonance therapy has proven beneficial. This therapy can not only treat individual allergens but also reduce the body's predisposition to allergies by addressing chronic masked allergies, potential viral burdens, and other therapy obstacles, thereby alleviating the symptoms.

What are the benefits of holistic allergy treatment?

By combining traditional medical diagnosis and treatment methods with the possibilities of bioresonance therapy, we provide all patients, especially those with complex allergic conditions, with a comprehensive care concept tailored to their individual needs and preferences.
