Another alternative type --

Has anyone seen him?

My Arts camp Director just gave me his name and told me that his daughter, about five at the time, had allergies to wheat, dairy and lots of environmentals. He took her to the best doctors and then to him. He cured her by giving her Nystatin. ( A drug prescribed for the yeast infection thrush). He told me nothing else worked but this did. He did not know if he was still practicing but I did just find him, and some of his books, easily on the net. Did anyone else out there go to him? yay or nay? (Dr. Lynch of NorthHampton, just got a resounding nay from someone, who I thank for helping me sort through the fringier doctors).

I know nothing about this guy, but I just wanted to say that when someone tells me their allergies are all better, the first question I ask is, "Tell me about your symptoms before you were 'treated.'"
As we all know here, some folks call intolerances or other minor symptoms "allergies." But they have not been clinically diagnosed (SPT or RAST) with allergies.
Unfortunately, I haven't found anyone in my area (Atlanta) that has been relieved of IgE allergies. Just that folks have been told by a chiropracter that they have 'allergies' and then they have been told they are 'cleared.'
Good luck,

I think that the camp director's daughter had intolerances. But the runny nose and upset stomach and environmentals are not totally unrelated either.
My ear perked because there have been recent studies relating antibiotics in early baby/toddlerhood and the dev. of FA. His child had strong antibiotics and so did mine.
I know those with sensitivites are in another camp. And yes, my friend is able to rally an entire preschool around her child's sensitivites as interpreted by a holistic DR (no blood test). And it bugs me. I should say good, but I feel she is asking alot for NOT a LFTA. But her son is loyally at his p-free table. So.

I never heard of this person but I'm thinking of seeing an alternative doctor.
My son never had antibiotics and he has PA/TNA and sesame allergy.
But I believe my allergies started after I was on antibiotics for a very long time.
I also believe that there are different reasons for allergies. Our immune systems are weakened by different causes. One could be toxins, another cause could be fungus. Someone I know had a child with asthma and allergy to peanuts and she went to an alternative doctor and he said he had a fungus in his stomach and they used chickweed drops and after that he didn't have to be careful anymore he could eat anything in the class. This confused my son because he understood that the other child was allergic but ate cupcakes. Also before the treatment his mom had a looser comfort zone then me. She actually gave out chocolates with nuts in it for one of the parties. For her son's sake I hope he is cured of his allergy.
I researched chickweed and from what I understand it helps with asthma.
