Although common allergic substances include dust, molds, seafood, milk, soy, citrus, wheat, and nuts, the allergen causing your symptoms may be anything. In our office we make use of a broader model of "allergen" than the IGE mediated kinds that most traditional allergists work with. However, we do test (and desensitize if needed) for the most common allergens first.
"Vog" is a term that combines the word "volcano" and "smog." Here on the Big Island we have a very slowly active volcano that produces vog that is seen intermittently and affects certain sensitive people who reside in many of the Hawaiian Islands. People with pre-existing respiratory conditions are more prone to adverse effects of vog, which can include:
NAET is very effective in treating vog sensitivity, so that those who are vog-sensitive can continue to live happily in Hawaii while remaining symptom-free from vog. If you suffer from vog sensitivities we hope you will take advantage of this incredible life-changing technique.
