            Below is the list the list of the problems treated in the EPD Study that can be a result of allergy of all types.  Most of my patients have classical and non-classical inhalant, food and chemical allergy.  The primary method of treatment I use for many problems you see listed listed is LDA immunotherapy.  The list below is a fairly complete compilation of conditions that have been shown to respond to both EPD and LDA immunotherapy, thought the list is growing. If you don't see your problem listed here, please call us.

1.      Rhinitis, perennial (runny nose, nasal congestion, etc., year `round)

** Only if the patient has significant food or inhalant allergy/sensitivity

Some other primary modalities I use, and problems I treat, are listed below:

Oral and IV nutritional treatment.  These include patients with chronic fatigue, bacterial and viral problems, acute and chronic asthma and nutritional deficiencies.

Toxic Mold Exposure: I treat many patients with symptoms because they were exposed to toxic molds in their homes, at work or at school, and as a recognized "expert" witness, I give legal testimony regarding mold issues. The courts in New Mexico are very difficult when it comes to mold exposure, and I've personally had a very important case thrown out of court here for no other reason except the judge felt one of the patients persuaded the others that mold was a problem. If you live here, beware!

Dietary treatment: We offer a temporary diet to many new patients who have sensitivities to foods (known problems and the ones they don't recognize), and these problems are causing them to be continually ill.

Autoimmune diseases: including systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, autoimmune degenerative arthritis, ulcerative colitis and many, many others.  We employ active immunization for these problems, based on the principals of molecular mimicry, and now are using autologous LDA vaccines, the newwest development in LDA treatment.

Natural Hormone Treatment: I use natural (Armour) thyroid and other thyroid compounds, natural hydrocortisone (Cortef), natural estrogen, progesterone and testosterone for the treatment of the symptoms of menopause, fatigue and most health problems related to hormonal deficiency. Forouz, our P.A. is extremely thorough in her investigation of these issues, and will find the treatment you need if your situation is complex.
