Applied Kinesiology - has anyone tried alternative medicine to treat an allergy?
My daughter is almost 2. It took 3 mild reactions (only reddness and itching) before we narrowed the allergen down to peanuts. I knew that peanut allergies usually get worse so I started looking for possible solutions. Several friends at La Leche League have had their childrens allergies (none as severe as peanut) treated successfully by a Chiropractor using applied kinesiology. Another friend had her son's dairy and wheat allergies (which were more severe) treated by another chiropractor with some hopeful results - no change in the dairy but the wheat allergy went away for 4 months (he ate wheat during that time). There are two MD's here in town that claim to be able to eliminate peanut allergies using techniques based on kinesiology.
Anyway I'm looking for more info...real experiences of people would be best - not claims of the practitioner.
