What goods or services do you provide? Integrative Allergy Solutions provides an integrative approach to environmental allergies and food sensitivities that may be an underlying cause of many chronic conditions people experience. In addition, we provide a low impact form of chiropractic adjustments, NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique), physical therapy modalities, acupuncture, homeopathy, and the latest technology in cold laser therapy.
What’s new or exciting at your place? We’re very excited to bring this innovative, natural solution for allergies and wellness to the valley. An individual can be allergic to anything: Foods, drinks, drugs, clothing, chemicals, pollen, grasses, etc. Allergy symptoms can range from mild to debilitating. From a Western point of view, an allergy is an overreaction of the immune system.
Integrative Allergy Solutions views allergies from a holistic perspective and defined in terms of the effect, an allergic substance has on the energy flow in the body. The result of energy imbalance leads to a diminished state of health. By utilizing a combination of chiropractic, NAET, neurologic stress reduction, acupuncture, kinesiology, homeopathy, nutritional supplementation, and the latest technology in laser therapy, we are able to reprogram the brain, remove blockages from the energy pathways, and regain perfect balance to reach optimum health.
What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your patients? My philosophy is based on a triad of health — anatomical (structural), physiological (nutritional and biochemical) and psychological (mental and emotional). By concentrating on all three aspects of a person you are looking at the body as a whole and not just treating their symptoms.
Tell us a little about your background, education and experience. My husband and I are the proud parents of two amazing sons. We are privileged to have lived and raised our family in the beautiful mountains of the Vail Valley for more than 25 years.
I have been a licensed chiropractor, certified NAET practitioner and certified acupuncturist in the state of Colorado for over nineteen years. I am honored to have this opportunity to serve the people of this great community.
