The first visit, a ninety-minute appointment, is a non-invasive assessment of the child’s general health history with a complete functional health evaluation. Identifying the elements that the stress immune system is critical to emptying the allergy “bucket” and supporting the child’s ability to deactivate allergic responses to foods.
After the pertinent health information has been collected, a functional health evaluation of the immune system using the Galvanic Skin Response Device (GSRD) by International Health Technologies is performed. The GSRD works with meridians: a network of energetic pathways that pass through organs and tissues in the body. Acupuncture points act as windows into the meridian system. When the GSRD is applied to specific acupuncture points, the bio-energetic energy travels through the meridians and allows A.R.T. Allergy Release Technique® to evaluate which systems are out of balance or stressed.
A detailed assessment on the immune system includes the digestion, lymphatic, hepatic, adrenal and nervous system. The evaluation looks for microorganisms that overload these systems such as bacteria, viruses, candida, mold, parasites, heavy metals and vaccinations. After creating a homeopathic based on the findings, one of the five trigger allergens that also attribute to the heightened immune response is worked on.
