LGS

Posted by Donna on November 20, 1998 at 23:11:28:

Dear Dr. Stoll,
I posted the message on 11/16 about leaky gut and appreciate your response. I have ordered both "Mind as a Healer" and the stress and relaxation workbood from my library, they should be in in a couple weeks. And I plan on doing the meditation. However, I was wondering if the EPD shots will help me with my allergy symptoms and brain allergies and perhaps the insomnia while beginning the meditation. I have an appointment on Wednesday and have been trying to get as much info as I can on these type of shots. They are supposed to be for food allergies as well as inhalants.

Thank you again.

Donna Brady

Dear Donna,

What does EPD stand for?

If they are the standard "allergy shots" they will be 5% effective after one or two shots a week for 2 years.

They are not likely to harm you except for using money & time you could be spending doing more effective things.

Let me know about what EPD stands for.

Walt

EPD stands for enzyme potentiated desensitization. My doctor gave me a brochure on it. You have to be very careful what you eat, what personal products you use, what you are exposed to in the days before or after the treatment or you will become sensitized to them. It even said that women who had sex during this period could become senitized to their husband's sperm. I said no thanks.

Walt,
EPD stands for enzyme potentiated desensitization. Not only does the serum contain airborne allergents but also chemical and food allergents. They're not the regular allergy shots, I'm taking them now and it's been two years and they stopped helping. Now my allergy symptoms are getting worse, I get very congested from any food and anything, I'm just always congested. Also, my left ear is always making a swooshing noise and feels full (my allergist says I need tubes). I'd appreciate anything you can find about these shots. The serum comes from England I think.

Dear Donna,

I am not familiar with this approach so I canot tell you what to expect. HOWEVER, my prediction is that--even if they work--they will stop working just like the others did if that is all you do. That does not mean that you should not use them. What it means is that you need to have realistic expectations of their place in all this. This is a temporary fix at best. Let us know how you do with them since I am always looking for alternative options for people to use while they are actually solving their problem.

You are going to have to learn about LGS & C-RS and deal with the causes of them or you will still be looking for a permanent treatment 5 years from now.

Since total body "bracing" is the most common cause of LGS (and the complicating C-RS), and bracing inevitably causes the habit of letting your teeth touch when you are relaxed (the most common cause of your ear and nasal congestion), you need to stop and think about this.

This relationship has been discussed for years on this BB. You could find a wealth of information in the archives.

THEN, if you still have questions, write again.

Walt
