A Simplified Explanation on How It Works
SAAT is a single procedure that often completely clears or significantly (80-90%) reduces a very specific health concern.
Both western and eastern doctors agree that allergic responses of all kinds develop from an overly sensitive, “malfunctioning” immune system. While western doctors mainly address allergies by suppressing the immune response, eastern medicine, in this case, SAAT, works to address the immune system’s negative response to an allergen.
SAAT essentially “reprograms” your immune system to stop over reacting to allergens. If the body has the ability and power to develop the over active immune response, it has the ability to reverse it as well.
Dr. Soliman, a pioneer in auricular acupuncture has completed years of clinical study on thousands of allergy sufferers. His refined method of SAAT has led individuals to experience elimination or severe reduction in their allergy symptoms.
Most people with mild or moderate allergic reactions benefit tremendously from this technique. However, we follow the recommendations of Dr. Soliman for patients with severe anaphalactic reactions to substances – they may be treated with SAAT but the strong suggestion is to continue to avoid exposure if possible. The SAAT treatment may help to minimize symptoms of accidental exposure to such substances.
If you have identified your particular allergen via allergy testing or other means, we will order a homeopathic vial with the particular energetic signature (frequency) of your particular allergen(s) if we have yet to treat it at our clinic. We will confirm your sensitivity to your allergen utilizing the vial and then identify the EXACT location for needle treatment of that particular allergen for YOUR body. This location is identified by finding the most electrically conductive location in your ear using a specialized volt meter. This procedure was built on the work of Dr. Paul Nogier in France in the 1960s and refined by Dr. Nader Soliman.
If you unsure of your particular food and/or environmental allergy, we will utilize a variety of homeopathic vials containing the frequencies of many known common allergens to try to identify the particular allergen(s) your immune system has developed a negative response to.
Auricular Allergy Acupuncture
ONE tiny specialized ear acupuncture needle inserted per allergen. Each needle is covered by a small piece of medical adhesive tape, and worn for 3-4 weeks, and then can be removed at home. 3-4 specific allergens may be addressed per treatment.
Typical SAAT Results
From our experience so far, SAAT is capable of clearing 100% of a particular allergy symptom(s). These symptoms include gastrointestinal distress from particular foods, swelling/itchy mouth from particular food consumption, itchy/watery eyes, sneezing, runny noses, chest tightness and coughing when exposed to a particular animal (esp dog or cat), and contact dermatological reactions (latex, poison ivy) to name the few common ones. SAAT may also result in a severe reduction in symptoms, where patients may still experience a tiny residue of a symptom(s) but they report that their symptoms are 80, 90, or 95% improved.
We would like to share that Dr. Soliman notes that in 10 years of practicing SAAT, no reoccurrence of the same allergy has been reported, with the exception of those that occurred due to hormonal shifts in the individual (i.e. puberty, pregnancy, menopause etc).
If you still experience some type of symptom after treatment, it is most likely due to the fact that the body is responding to an additional allergy that has yet to be identified and treated. For example, a patient may not only be allergic to apples, he/she may also be allergic to the food grade wax or pesticide residue on the apple. In this case, treating for apple may greatly reduce the allergy, but only 100% clearing will result when ALL aspects the client is sensitive to are treated.
This is important to also keep in mind when addressing outdoor allergies. While we are capable of treating particular tree/grass/other plant species, identification of all outdoor allergies can sometimes be challenging. Paying attention to the time of year as well as the environment you are in when allergies are triggered are a necessity.
If you suspect you have a food allergy but have not identified it yet, food logs and elimination diets can help us identify your suspected food allergen(s).
Collaborating with an allergist (see below) is also welcomed to identify your particular allergen.
It is extremely important to keep in mind that the success of your treatment depends greatly on identification of all food and environmental allergies. While results from this procedure are individual specific, our experiences so far with this method have far well exceeded our expectations and those of our clients. Testimonials coming soon!
SAAT Scheduling & Cost
Fees associated with SAAT treatment:
$150 – First Needle
$100 – Each Additional Needle
Cost covers testing/determining the location of the allergen point for up to four (4) known allergies and needle placement.
If you are unaware as to what you are allergic or sensitive to, we offer allergy evaluation appointments. As these can get quite in depth the cost for an appointment is $250.00. No needle will be inserted at this appointment. Cost for needle(s) placement will still be charged at the SAAT treatment session.
Due to the specificity of this treatment, ALL APPOINTMENTS MUST BE MADE BY PHONE, along with a discussion with the SAAT provider.
PLEASE NOTE: In contrast to using Chinese Medicine as a therapy involving multiple treatments to resolve or manage a health issue, SAAT is viewed as a single procedure that often completely clears or significantly (80-90%) reduces a very specific health concern.
SAAT & Collaborating with Western Medicine
Traditional skin (scratch) tests and blood tests can, at times, identify specific allergens. We are certainly open to working with allergists and the information they can offer via traditional allergy testing. The more information we have to address your concerns, the better. It is important to remember that even many allergists note the limitations to allergy testing and that tests may not always reveal allergens or the degree of sensitivity to a particular allergen.
We are filled with sincere appreciation of the brilliant and innovative work of Dr. Nogier and Dr. Soliman, who spent tens of years developing and refining a procedure that went on to help thousands who suffer from allergies, with great success. Thank you Dr. Soliman, we are so happy to bring this ingenious allergy solution to our community!
