Success Story

“When I came in 2 years ago, I could hardly breathe, and I was so tired. I knew that I had seasonal allergies, but I figured that was all. I have learned so much. I didn’t know my seasonal allergies were only the tip of the iceberg. I have a lot of food allergies too. I am feeling so much better. I can breathe! And I have energy to get me through the day. Thank you!”

Dr Sultan’s Comments

 “The key to controlling respiratory allergies in the form of asthma and hay fever, is serial dilution allergy testing. If you had allergy testing done in the past, it was more than likely a traditional allergy test, putting a scratch on the back and/or forearm.  On the other hand, a more precise and advanced method is called serial dilution testing, where the patient is tested for multiple dilution one after the other and that can pinpoint the treatment dose to treat allergies.  Most people can get well within a few injections if they have just inhalant allergies.  If in addition, they have food allergies or other sensitivities then it just takes a little bit longer to sort those things out and treatment them.”

Luke N. Age: 6 1/2 years

Success Story

When Luke was two years old, he started taking inhalation therapy at home, usually three to four times daily, occasionally as often as six times daily. He was sent to ABC Hospital in Kansas City (we decline to use the real name of the hospital for legal reasons) for a full diagnosis and treatment plan. We followed their plan, but the Asthma got no better - even worse at times (last summer was his worst summer) and he had frequent infections requiring antibiotics to cure pneumonia and bronchitis infections. The hospital plan treated symptoms only. Luke now has been taking treatment here for 1 year - allergy shots, low sugar diet, Nystatin.  This has been his best summer in 4 years!  He has needed progressively less frequent treatments for asthma attacks and fewer infections.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

 here are some sobering statistics from CDC about asthma in children: (Center for Disease Control & Prevention)

  • Number of children who currently have asthma: 6.8 million

• Percentage of children who currently have asthma: 9.3%

• Number of visits to physician offices with asthma:14.2 million

  • Number of visits to emergency departments with asthma: 1.8 million

• Hospital inpatient care for asthma: 439,000

•Number of deaths: 3,630

With all the advancements we are still having about 4000 children die from asthma that is one of the easiest diseases to treat. There should be practically no mortality. I bet all those who died and all those who are suffering were never given a chance to treat the cause. Pills and puffers are not the answer.

33. Rhinitis, Sinusitis, Bronchitis, Candida, Thyroid

Name

Shirley K

Success Story

Until I started seeing Dr. Sultan to find out what my problems were, I'd been getting sick every 6-8 weeks.  I'd have all of the symptoms of the flu but with no fever. After being diagnosed as being sensitive to petro carbons and allergic to dust, mold, mildew, fungus, dog, cats, cigarettes, perfumes and glycerin, I started on sublingual drops and allergy shots.  My Candida problem was diagnosed about 2 years into my treatment, and I was put on a no sugar diet with Nystatin.  We also found out that my thyroid gland was not working and so started on thyroid therapy.  My total treatment duration was about 7 years but I am now free of any problems associated with my sinuses, bronchial tubes, thyroid gland or the Candidiasis.  As Dr. Sultan once told me, "You didn't get sick overnight, so you won't get well overnight.  If you're willing to find out what causes your symptoms, you'll eventually find the relief you desire." 

I must also state that during this same time frame my son, who was 3 years old at the beginning of treatment, was also being treated for bronchial and sinus problems.  He also was allergic to dogs, cats, etc.  He is now doing fine and has no problems.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

Dr.  Sultan’s comments: so true- people don't get sick overnight and don’t get overnight. Most important virtue you need is Patience. Most of us being raised in “instant coffee” culture don't have. It takes time to understand what the causes of your illness are, how are they affecting you, and what to do about them. Then it takes time for body to heal

Asthma, Hay fever, Hypothyroidism, magnesium deficiency

Name

Stephanie M

Success Story

When I first came to Dr. Sultan, I had many symptoms -- Asthma, fatigue, runny nose, really bad headaches, hay fever, and many more things.  He found I was allergic to dust and molds and I have low thyroid.  He found also that I have magnesium deficiency.  

By taking care of these feel better.  I have more energy and can do more things.  Over the weekends I used to sleep all day until 4 pm.  Now I get up early in the morning and can go all day without getting tired.  In two months, I had started feeling so much better that I ran 1 mile in 11 minutes, 12 seconds for the first time.  I used to take several asthma meds daily even up to 6 at one time.  Now I needed my inhaler only once.  I know I am not over yet and I still have to watch what I breathe, eat and drink.

One of the major factors that triggered my asthma was fragrances.  That is why Thomas Jefferson Middle School students graciously made school fragrance free.  I am grateful to them.  Now I can tolerate fragrances to some degree.  This is where I think will take me long time to develop tolerance to.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

 this is unfortunate that in the current era people are so sick. We have made lots of advancement in all fields of science, physics, chemistry, biochemistry and medicine.

However, the branch of medicine dealing with causes of illness has not received enough awareness. The knowledge is there, but is kept from consumer’s reach.

Because someone took time to take care of this child, she went on become a chiropractic physician and serving her patients with same vigor and understanding as she received here.

Allergic Bronchitis and Frequent Respiratory Infections

Name

Robin E

Success Story

I was having respiratory problems and was in a pattern of getting sick every 3 or 4 weeks.  My previous doctor told me that I just worked too hard and had too much stress in my life!  I was frustrated and depressed about the constant bouts with sickness, which had definitely affected my lifestyle.

In the first 6 months that I've been coming to ATC, the difference is amazing!  I have more energy, I've broken the cycle of sickness, and my life is more active and fun.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

 first, a lesson to learn from here is that stress does not cause a serious illness. There are always physical causes for your illness whether it is a physical ailment or mental symptoms. Our job is to figure that out and offer solutions that work.

Respiratory allergies and infections can make life miserable putting you through the cycles of antihistamines, decongestants, and antibiotics. It is so easy to treat the cause, which is usually inhalant allergy like dust, molds, pollens etc. We use an advanced method of allergy testing called Serial dilution testing. Here, you test with multiple dilutions of various antigens to find a treatment dose. Once treatment dose is found it is matter of 4-5 injections to reach the maintenance dose, and that often means beginning of relief even though you may have been suffering for years.

Inhalant Allergy

Name

R. G.

Success Story

Since I have been treated, I feel a lot better. I don't get sick like I used to. I breathe much better. I don't break out in a rash anymore. So, the treatment works.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

Inhalant allergy is one of the simplest allergies to treat. However untreated, it is responsible for numerous sufferings like runny nose, stuffy nose, frequent respiratory infection, antibiotics, repeated visits to doctor, coughing, wheezing, difficulty in breathing and asthma attacks etc. Typically, these problems will be treated with antibiotics, antihistamines, and inhalers. To treat allergies, I say that it is 90% inspiration and 10% perspiration. However, in case of inhalant allergies it is 99% inspiration and 1% perspiration because all you really need to do is take the allergy injections. With new method of immunotherapy, you can get better within a few injections.

J. S.

Success Story

I no longer am having to go to a psychiatrist for depression. I no longer have the hives. I was taken off Synthroid and put on (desiccated) thyroid. The thyroid medicine was increased from 1 grain to 2 grains. After starting the allergy shots, my blood pressure became normal. I have not had any wheezing in the bronchial tubes. So, asthma has improved. With the corrected dosage of thyroid and the mineral deficiencies corrected I have more energy and feel better in general. Even though I do have diabetes, my blood sugar is generally under control.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

We all know that low thyroid is an important cause for depression. Even though patient has low thyroid, still depression gets treated by the psychiatrist. In our experience synthetic thyroid like Synthroid may not give the optimum relief and instead switching to Armour Thyroid which has two hormones T4 and T3 vs. Synthroid is only one hormone-T4 patient do much better and this was a turning point in improving her depression. In your normal frame of mind, you will never think about going to an allergist for hypertension, but the truth of the matter is that environmental, nutritional and hormonal factor affects the body as a whole and after immune and nervous system the next most important organ in system involved is the cardiovascular system. Taking care of underlying causes like low thyroid and magnesium deficiency can improve hypertension and again reducing the need for blood pressure medications. So, in hypertension who you may call? environmental allergist and he may be able to optimize blood pressure for you.

I was sick most of my life with bronchitis, pneumonia, hormone (female) early cessation at 42 yrs of age. Then I suffered 50% loss of bone (severe osteoporosis). Fell four years ago breaking the femur in my leg in pieces and shoulder in pieces. With allergy shots, hormone Progesterone, my bone pain has stopped. I walk better than most people and have a foot-long steel plate in left leg and had a 12" rod in shoulder. I feel better than when I was very young. A year ago, before treatment I had bronchitis for 5 months. No doctor visits this past winter because I took allergy shots. More energy since treatment. Feel younger again. Life is so much better and fuller thanks to Dr. Sultan's allergy treatment.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

Nothing comes close to treating the cause. People are having their lives ruined because of not knowing that they can treat the cause. One of the main functions of these success stories is to bring awareness. See how people are ruining their entire life running after symptomatic treatment. Promise that you will educate at least one loved one who is having health problems. They don’t know that treating the cause can bring a new revolution in their life.

Asthma aggravated by exposure to many common chemicals.

Name

C.M.

Success Story

After exposure to chemicals at my work environment, I was bed ridden. In June of 2000, I made my first appointment with Dr. Sultan. He was able to give me a diagnosis of MCS which numerous other doctors had not been able to do. After much testing and treating with Vitamins and supplements, my health and everyday living has improved. Although my husband must shop and run errands, I am able to function in our "safe/clean" home. I live by the Marine motto - Adapt - Overcome - Improvise.

most people do not realize that common chemicals in our environment cause chronic illness and for some it can be a debilitating illness. Common chemicals that we use or come in contact on daily basis and don’t think much about include fragrances, hair sprays, scented soaps, gasoline, Lysol, personal care products, gasoline, exhaust fumes, paints, varnishes etc.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

She has a strong message for all of us and it is “most people do not realize that common chemicals in our environment cause chronic illness and for some it can be a debilitating illness. Common chemicals that we use or come in contact on daily basis and don’t think much about include fragrances, hair sprays, scented soaps, gasoline, Lysol, personal care products, gasoline, exhaust fumes, paints, varnishes etc.”

 

If people did three things, most people would be able to get rid of a lot of their ailments. These are: 1) clean air, 2) clean food, and 3) clean water. To have clean air, do not smoke and use green products in cleaning and personal care. Remember, do not breathe what you cannot eat. What would happen if you drank Lysol, pine-sol, or gasoline? If you cannot drink it, don’t inhale it either. That is where green products come into picture like no fragrances, no perfumes, use baking soda, washing soda, borax etc. in cleaning as examples of green products

Chronic Cough

Name

B. T.

Success Story

I have been doctoring for over eleven years with various medical doctors to treat a chronic cough. I was treated for allergies with every allergy and asthma medication. I have even been treated with immunotherapy - IgE & IgG injections and IV's. None helped the cough and post-nasal drip. After all this, my chiropractor said that I had done enough, and he recommended the Environmental Health Center. Here I received allergy testing and got to give my own injections for molds, dust, Candida, and May/June allergies. Next, I started the Candida diet along with Nystatin to rid my body of an over-abundance of yeast due to the many antibiotics given to treat the chronic cough. I was also found to be severely magnesium/potassium deficient, so I started magnesium supplements and IV's. Miraculously the upper/lower back pain I had in the past disappeared. I was very pleased. I have significantly improved by 90% in just six months with treatment addressing environmental, nutritional, and hormonal causes. This is the key! After eleven years of traditional medical, I needed to seek a doctor who would get to the root causes. What I have learned is that my genetics had the gun, buy environmental, nutritional, and hormonal factors can pull the trigger. We need a focus in medicine on what causes sickness and not to mask these with medications only. I have spent eleven years’ worth of paying for weekly allergy injections and various treatments, not to mention lost time going to the office weekly for these shots/treatments. It was worth the time and effort to seek Dr. Sultan out. I have received aggressive and caring treatment to address my health at Environmental Health Center. Dr. Sultan has a great depth of knowledge and encourages me to learn to educate myself in healthy ways to care for myself and family. Staff is well informed and work diligently to answer questions.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

No pills or puffers can fix allergy problems; nor they can fix any other chronic ailment. The sooner you get to the root causes the sooner you can start enjoying wonderful heath once again.

Success Story

I came to Dr. Sultan over a year ago. I had many symptoms, such as bronchial asthma, recurrent vaginal yeast infections approximately 24 (once a month), itching and swelling of eyes (6 years), urinary tract infections for 7 years, fatigue, canker sores, gas and bloating for 1 year and headaches, also chest pains which turned out to be from food.

I had been to several doctors for my problems including a prior allergy doctor and no one could really get me well because they only treated the symptoms, not the cause. Dr. Sultan treats the cause.

Today, 05-15-91 - I feel great, I am taking allergy shots, watching my diet and doing what Dr. Sultan suggests I do. All my symptoms are gone except for slight asthma. Whenever I have been sick, the Doc has been there to see me and immediately help me.

I have since had friends come over and now my mother. I tell people all the time about Dr. Sultan and his allergy treatment center, and his staff has always been good to me. Whenever I have any problem of sickness or pain, I consult with Dr. Sultan first and I know if he can't help me, he will send me to someone who can. He is a very honest and caring Doctor. I would highly recommend anyone coming here.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

When she had multiple problems like this, doctor of the organ approach does not work. You need somebody who can look at the patient comprehensively from head to toe and make connections and figure out the reasons for all the symptoms. Once that is accomplished, recovery is quick.

Success Story

I first started coming November 1989. I have seen Doctors down in Georgia with no success. Dr. Sultan kept me on the medication I was on until I got used to the climate up here. With no success of my medication, Dr. Sultan suggested for me and my parents to believe in his testing, and his successes which started on July 5, 1990. At the end of all the testing I had the following problems: Candida, Dust and Mold, and Pollens. Since I've been taking my allergy injections, I have gone from seeing Dr. Sultan from once a month to every 4 months. I am thankful for being able to have met Dr. Sultan and his staff. He has made me feel like a real person instead of being sick all the time.

Dr Sultan’s Comments

The single most important cause for respiratory allergies is inhalant allergy like dust, molds and pollens etc. There are basically two methods of allergy testing-traditional allergy testing and serial dilution testing. Traditional allergy testing is typically very insensitive and misses a lot of allergies and cannot quantify allergy. On the other hand, in serial dilution testing, multiple dilutions are tested which makes it more sensitive and helps to pinpoint to the right treatment dose. Instead of taking injections for years to see a response, you can start seeing the response within a few injections like 4 or 5 injections and this is the point where recovery starts and need for medications minimized.

Success Story

Jeff is only 9 years old, but during his short life, he's known a lot of sickness. As a baby and toddler, he had frequent ear infections and upper respiratory infections. He's always had mood swings and tended toward "hyper" behavior. At age 5, he was hospitalized with bronchospasms and had several "asthmatic" type reactions during the next 2 years. Then he began to develop sinus infections and by age 8 was sick 8 months of the year. Eczema began to appear at that time and would often spread over large areas of his body. He was miserable. After allergy testing and treatment, Jeff is a totally different child. He is calmer, quieter, happier, less tired, better able to concentrate on his school- work. The eczema is gone. He has only 2-3 colds a year and they don't seem to develop into the frequent infections that they used to. He can breathe freely, and he enjoys jogging! He has fewer stomach aches and headaches, and life is just "more fun"! Hooray! We are grateful to God for the healing that we see and to Dr. Sultan and his staff for unraveling the "mystery" of Jeff's ill health. Jeff has a brighter future because of a lot we've learned .... Thanks!

Dr Sultan’s Comments

Look at this child who is 9-year-old and up until the age of 9 years he suffered and suffered and suffered. Besides this, frequent respiratory symptoms, and respiratory infection a dominant feature was “hyper” behavior with mood swings. This is again a typical case of neuroimmune disorders where the immune system as well as the nervous system is being affected. One of the complications of untreated respiratory allergies in children is development of hyperactivity, ADHD and ADD in later years. 30% of children are now classified as “mentally sick”. I assure you that none of them allergy has ever been suspected as a cause. The end- result is these children end up with Ritalin or Ritalin type medications and don’t accomplish very much academically.

Justin was what we called always sickly. He caught everything going around and often had bad coloring. In school he had difficulty concentrating and was confused often. Since our treatment began’ he no longer has trouble with his asthma, it's as if he never had it. He is healthy and rarely gets sick. His coloring is almost peaches and cream and his schoolwork is much improved. He doesn't have many behavior problems, so we now call it his angel behavior. We are so pleased we came here. Thanks.

 

Dr Sultan’s Comments

Respiratory allergies and difficulty in concentration are two classical symptoms of neuroimmune disorders in children. Barely treating dust and mold allergies produced not only dramatic improvement in respiratory symptoms but also in his behavior that mother now calls “angel behavior”.

When I came to see Dr. Sultan, I felt miserable.  I experienced chronic sneezing, coughing, runny and congested nose and chest.   I was having headaches, irritability, some bloating, poor concentration, head pressure and a variety of other minor discomforts.  Dr. Sultan discussed my problems with me, made arrangements for testing, found the major causes and has successfully treated me for about 95% of my symptoms.  The other 5% are there because of the things I still need to change in my lifestyle, but the Doctor is confident that these too will change.  He is very encouraging to me.  Overall, I feel 99% better because of Dr. Sultan.

 we don’t heal patients. People must be educated about the causes and watch how they conquer their illness. You can get well too!
