Story:

Before coming to Doctor Sultan, I was having asthma attacks at least twice every three months during winter.
Also a lot or sneezing and itching, but now that I have stated coming here, I haven't had one in four months.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

The single most important cause for asthma and repeated pneumonia is inhalant allergies. Treating inhalant allergies often resolves most of the respiratory problems.

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.

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 the 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.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

Candida overgrowth is an important cause for overall not feeling well because this yeast produces various toxins which when absorbed through the gut can affect any organ and cause fatigue and tiredness and make you feel unwell.

Story:

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.

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.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

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.

Since I have started my visits to Dr. Sultan I have overcome the dizziness and chest pains that I thought would end my life. Taking Dr. Sultan's advice and treatments, my life is much better. I used to wheeze when I breathed. That is gone. I was so tired, the days seemed top never end. Now I can enjoy the evening with my family because I have a lot more energy. Dr. Sultan works with me with my appointments because I live so far away. We take care of as much as possible per trip, so my health can improve more quickly.  Finding Dr. Sultan has literally saved me from an unbearable life of suffering.  Thank you, Dr. Sultan for your help.

No matter how sick you are and no matter how hopeless you are there is always light at the end of the tunnel if you look for the cause!

Chronic Cough

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.

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.

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.

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.

Story:

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”.
