Allergies, Sensitivities & Intolerances
Did you know the body reacts to everything? Go from a dark room into a bright room and your pupils dilate, from a warm room to a cold room and you break out in goosebumps, eat something tart and your mouth puckers.
An allergy, sensitivity or intolerance is when a body has an abnormal reaction to a substance that is harmless in similar amounts in the majority of people.
Reactions differ from person to person. It is obvious that the offending substances or "allergens", are not themselves the cause or everyone would have a reaction to them.
The foods we eat affect our digestive system in different ways as well. According to Nutritionist Daniella Chace, between 1994 and 2000, the same time Genetically Modified foods flooded the market, allergic reactions more than doubled. "Genetically modified foods send food-derived messages that are negatively altering our cellular signaling systems, and the resulting epigenetic (the study of influences on genes caused by environmental or other factors not part of the underlying natural genetic structure) changes represent the origin of many of today's preventable diseases," Daniella Chace stated in an interview with Organic Connections magazine.
Why then, does one person react to a particular substance and another person not? These reactions are caused by a malfunctioning immune system. The master control system of the body - the nervous system - is often compromised. The brain then identifies a substance as harmful to the body and causes a reaction each time the body comes in contact with it.
Symptoms can manifest themselves in many ways. They can manifest as digestive disturbances, commonly considered food allergies, sensitivities or intolerances. They can manifest in the eyes and nose as hay fever, in the bronchi as asthma, or anywhere on the skin. A person can react with severe, debilitating headaches, rapid heartbeats, fatigue, sleeping disorders, rashes, hives, dandruff, chronic pains, etc., all as a result of the body's reaction to a substance it considers harmful.
What is the solution?
The first step is to identify the allergen(s). Most traditional practices stop here and the identified allergen is either eliminated from the diet or a medication is administered to counter the allergic reaction.
At Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center a revolutionary, sub-clinical, non-invasive process is utilized to identify the allergen and "de-sensitize" the body to it. This process utilizes a cold laser to re-educate the body regarding how it's reacting to the apparent allergen. Depending on the duration and severity of the allergy the process might need to be repeated, however the allergen may thereafter cause no ill effects and the person can live a normal life free of the previous reactions!

"The treatments reduced allergy symptoms amazingly well, and have also reduced pain in my hands and feet." -- LN 6/11/08
"I have had the best allergy season I can remember! My sinuses and lungs are much clearer." --CS 4/9/08
After receiving treatment from Dr. Wall, I don't get tired any more and I can hike to the top of the trail! I don't get any leg cramps at all and the bumps on my elbow disappeared in just three days, after only one treatment ! -- TP 1/15/08
I feel so good now. And when I do run across a food or chemical (skin cream for example) that triggers the symptoms, I usually don't react so violently. And then I take a sample into Dr. Wall and we deal with it. Thank you Dr. Wall. -- DB, December 12, 2007
After treatment by Dr. Wall, I never had the problem again. I can drink orange juice and eat cucumbers and things made with bleached flour without the breakouts or indigestion. - EF 2/22/07
The improvement after being treated by Dr. Wall was amazing and very quick. "I don't itch as much, my allergies are better and I am much calmer." (The parents hated giving him drugs for all the problems, especially since they weren't helping.) - CL 4/1/05
"Superior treatment: immediate and long-lasting." -KJ 4/23/08
