Q: How many visits are needed?
A: The number of visits required depends entirely on the severity of the case. It depends upon how many and what types of allergies the patient has. Some patients require one visit and other patients require 3, 6, 10, 20, etc. It all depends upon the patient. The average number of visits required is 6. However, some patients require up to 22 visits in order to get the best results. Doctor Johnson will let you know depending upon the diagnostic test.
Q: How long is a typical visit?
A: The typical first visit last between 30-60 minutes. Subsequent diagnostic visits are 15-30 minutes. Normal treatment visits is no longer than 15 minutes.
Q: If a patient already knows what he or she is allergic to would I go straight to the treatment?
A: Bio-Allergenix highly recommends that all patients be tested prior to treatment for several reasons. First, the BAX-3000 can determine what specific phenol (component) of the allergen a patient reacts to. By identifying and treating for these phenolics, there is a much higher degree of diagnostic specificity and, therefore, higher clinical success rates. Second, 95% of all allergic reactions do not occur for hours or days after exposure which oftentimes leads to the misidentification of the true culprit. Third, allergies are actually the cause of many of the chronic health conditions people deal with on a daily basis. Unfortunately, most people simply do not make the connection between symptom and allergy, causing the problem to become chronic. Identifying those underlying allergies can help to clear up many of these concerns. Fourth, the cumulative effect on symptomology that these underlying allergies have can exacerbate the symptoms caused primarily by the known allergy.
Q: When will patients notice an improvement in their allergy symptoms?
A: Most people notice diminishing symptoms after their first or second visit. Individual timetables to symptomatic relief will vary depending on how many allergies the patient has and what those allergies are. There are cases when asymptomatic allergies may require treatment before the primary allergy of complaint is treated. It is not uncommon for the symptoms associated with the allergy of primary complaint to reduce or clear up completely after only asymptomatic allergies are treated.
Q: Does the BAX-3000 cure allergies?
A: Even though all symptoms may be gone, a blood test may still reveal a trace amount of antibodies. Meaning you no longer get symptoms even though the blood test reveals antibodies. Antibodies stay in the system, just like the antibodies stay in the system after vaccinations. Who cares about antibodies if you no longer get the symptoms.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: No. A small percentage of patients report slight flushing or congestion for a short time (an hour or so) after their session, but this is actually a sign that the body is detoxifying (a good thing)!
Q: Is the BAX-3000 safe for children?
A: Yes, the BAX-3000 is safe for people of all ages. The laser works great for children’s allergies.
Q: What allergies can the BAX-3000 identify?
A: The BAX-3000 has 4000 substances in the main procedure allergen libraries and an additional 96,000 substances in the advanced procedures libraries. These substances include almost every substance that could possibly cause an allergic reaction.
