hi
i have been reading a book by sherry rogers( e.i. syndrome) and in the book she mentions allergy injections as a possible treatment for allergies. i would like to know if anyone has tried this type of therapy and what the cost is? not sure if my insurance will cover it. i have allergies and is doing skilled relaxation and have had some relief. thanks.

Hi, Debbie.

I am sure that Sherry does not recommend this approach as her first choice. As a matter of fact I would rank it as MY last choice.

What have you learned from the allergy archives?

Debbie,

I tried allergy injections a few years ago and actually felt much *worse* after starting them. I stopped after a month and went the homeopathic route. Much better.

I did allergy shots a few years ago, and they didn't do me any good. In fact I felt worse.
I decided to try them after my sister-in-law told me that they helped my adolescent niece. My daughter had allergies too and they improved when she reached adolescence WITHOUT shots. So it is my theory that my niece would have gotten better without the shots. But since she got better after having the shots, the shot's were thought to be the reason she got better, which wasn't the case, in my mind.
Another thing, my daughter had them when she was five years old. They did not help her.

they've been a lifesaver for me.

I always improve on shots, and I've quite several times. After about 5 years, I always have to go back and start them again. I get them every 6 weeks. I don't like it, but using alternative methods, combined with the shots, allows me to take no allergy meds otherwise.

Thanks, Lilly.

Statistically, 95% of tehe benefits from allergy desensitization shots is placebo. See the lead article in the journal "Spirituality and Health" August 2004 issue and let us know what you learn.
