My Clients Say...

Once I figured out that my swollen, stiff joints were a result of eating wheat, I began to wonder if many other discomforts were food-related as well.
I began to read about food allergies and discovered the BioSet method of treatment. I came to Monica, and through her knowledge and expertise, I was helped tremendously.
My food sensitivities and environmental allergies have been gone for over 2 years. My daughter and son also sought help from Monica in treating their allergies.
We are all much healthier now.

Before being treated by Monica Landry, I’d seen quite a few different doctors, naturopaths and specialists, and none of them could help me with my food allergies. Monica did, and now I enjoy a quality of life I haven’t had for years.

Though I knew nothing about Bioset Allergy Elimination when I went to see Monica, I easily and quickly connected with what Monica does and her extraordinary skills.  She was thorough in discussions with me and in her testing to narrow down the causes of my issues (and in re-testing to confirm results).  Most importantly, the results were undeniably impressive, both for body and, quite unexpectedly, for mind. She also has a great personality and is very easy to talk to. 

Having Monica eliminate my response to specific allergens is one of the best things I've done to take care of my health and entire well-being. Sarah A.

Allergy Theory

Western medicine recognizes an allergy as an immune system dysfunction. In a person who is susceptible to allergies, the immune system identifies non-harmful substances as harmful and launches a specific attack to destroy the substance. Western medicine treats symptoms with antihistamines, or an epi-pen when severe, but does not treat the root cause of the allergy.

Allergic reactions are commonly recognized as itchiness, runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, hay fever, hives, and anaphylaxis. However, allergies may appear in more subtle ways, often being responsible for many syndromes and chronic conditions. For many people, underlying allergies play a significant role in their acute, chronic and undiagnosed or misdiagnosed conditions.

Allergy Elimination was originally developed in 1985 by Dr. Devi Nambudripad (NAET), and was then further researched by Ellen Cutler (Bioset).The focus is on a safe and effective procedure for healing the body’s physical and emotional reactions.

As with all new healing modalities, this technique and its concepts have come under scrutiny. This is characteristic of many treatments borrowed or derived from non-traditional medicines and practices. With time however, complementary approaches have proven themselves to be effective methods for optimizing health and wellness.

Types of Allergies

Food allergies

Initial testing focuses on basic nutrients that may be out of balance preventing the body from metabolizing or utilizing that specific nutrient in the food. This approach is used when there is no immediate allergic reaction and the cause of symptoms is unknown. Any symptom can develop as a result of an imbalance involving basic nutrients.

This explains why sometimes “eliminating foods from your diet” doesn’t always give the expected relief from symptoms. Let’s take a look at a common food reaction such as dairy, as it tends to be a significant one. There are many components to dairy: vitamin D, calcium, chromium, whey proteins, lactose, etc. If dairy is eliminated from the diet but symptoms don’t totally disappear, then we can assume that a basic nutrient in dairy is present in other foods that are being eaten. When we find which nutrient is the culprit and treat for it, the symptoms linked to that nutrient are eradicated. There can be multiple symptoms attached to one imbalance.

Phenolics - the hidden allergen

When the allergen or the cause of symptoms cannot be immediately identified, phenolic compounds are often the hidden link. They are common in nature, giving food their scent and flavor. They are known as flavonoids, antioxidants, or essential oils, and can also be found in many household products as additives. Being desensitized to any number of phenolics can relieve many symptoms, such as: skin disorders - eczema, rashes, hives, itching bowel problems – colitis, diarrhea, constipation, IBS, bloating, gas lung issues - asthma, nasal congestion, sneezing, sinusitis, difficulty breathing pain, headaches/migraines, fibromyalgia, fatigue

Cross reactions – seasonal allergies causing a pseudo food reaction called Oral Mouth Syndrome

Some proteins in pollens are almost identical to those in certain foods. As a result, the body mistakes the food protein for the pollen protein, causing an allergic reaction to what seems like the eaten food, but in fact, the trigger is the plant pollen. Thus, after being treated for the plant pollen, the “food allergy” disappears.
