Condition Treated: Dust and Mold, Pollen, Candida, Thyroid
Initials: J. K.
Date: 03/23/91
Story: When I started coming here almost a year ago, I had a yeast infection for months, with relief only when I used medicine for the 7th day. Then it was gone and I had yeast again! Now it is only an occasional problem. Also I had bad allergies and couldn't breathe through my nose and now it's a mild stuffiness that I can live with. No more constant sinus infections. I had missed over 500 hours of work during the year due to allergies and lethargy. The thyroid I now take keeps me at a normal energy level. No more falling asleep at 6 pm for the evening and I'm no longer cold all the time. Now this past year I've been coming here, I've only missed 4 hours of work and am much healthier and happier.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: In health care cost people usually do not think about its impact has on their career and subsequent ability to work and lost wages because of sickness. She lost 25% of her wages because of sickness. If we assume salary to be $40,000 a year, she lost $10,000 in lost wages which could be counted towards the health care cost. That is why I emphasize that there is nothing better in cheaper than treating the underlying cause when you take all the factors in.

 

Condition Treated: Inhalant Allergy
Initials: R. G.
Date: 03/13/91
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 any more. So the treatment works.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: Inhalant allergy is one of the simplest allergy 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.

 

Condition Treated: Magnesium and B6 and Oral Magnesium
Initials: C. B.
Date: 04/06/91
Story: Marked improvement in premenstrual anxiety, water retention with B6. With addition of magnesium menstrual headaches noticeably improved along with cramping. With magnesium and B6, also noticed improvement in bowel symptoms, specifically spastic colon part.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: This patient presented with PMS which can cause severe PM symptoms in the form of PM anxiety, PM depression, PM irritability, PM anxiety, PM breast engorgement and PM fluid retention etc. Here oral magnesium combined with oral B6 was instrumental in getting Chris better. See how simple it is to treat complex medical problems!

 

Condition Treated: Foods
Initials: C. B.
Date: 04/06/91
Story: I was on the special diet for food testing and I did notice that I felt better and I was not really hungry. I just thought I would like to eat it but I did not want to miss my testing so I stayed on the diet the best I could. The week after my testing was over I didn't stay on quite as strict. My lower partial broke the day before I was over my food testing and I had to go five days without it. It felt fine when I first put it in, so the next day I ate things I really knew I should not and my gums became swollen, then I didn't know whether it was just adjusted too tight or my gums were just puffy. I didn't want to have the dentist adjust it and then be too big if my gums went down. I just waited and went back to not eating what I knew I should not eat and then it felt better. So that proved to me how those foods affect me. I could also feel it in my eyes when I woke up.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: Most of the food allergy is hidden and people have no clue if there is any food allergy at all. It is in contrast to obvious food allergy where patient knows that for e.g, peanuts will cause swelling of the eyes or difficulty in breathing or shellfish will cause an attack of hives. The only way to figure out hidden food allergy is by testing.

 

Condition Treated: Sick Little boy improves within 2 months March 6th through April of 1991
Initials: J. H.
Date: 04/17/91
Story: Jason has been receiving treatment here for 2 months. When we brought Jason here he was a sick little boy. My husband and I cannot begin to tell you what a fantastic job you have done for us. Jason is a completely different child. His illness has improved so much. We thank you all so very much for all you have done for us and for the improvements you have done on Jason. I love to recommend you to anyone with the sniffles. Thanks again!
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: A severely affected child but simple solution: Treat inhalant allergies and see if the patient improves. Simple! Simple! Simple!

 

Condition Treated: Dust, Molds, and Pollens
Initials: D. W.
Date: 04/20/91
Story: For eight years, during the spring and fall -- March to June & August to October -- I suffered severe and debilitating allergic symptoms of running and clogged nasal passages, sneezing, scratchy eyes, nervousness and embarrassment that accompanies not being normal. Well, today I can say there's been a great change. At this point, all the above symptoms have been reduced to nil. I can eat out, walk in air conditioned rooms without carrying tissue paper or feeling embarrassed because of my nasal sound, where Vanity sounds like Banity. I am looking forward to increased relief because I have yet to each my maintenance dose. Thank God for men of science and medicine like Dr. Tipu Sultan who have become instruments for the betterment of mankind.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: Hay fever can be miserable, sneezing, wheezing, difficulty in breathing, swollen eyes daily going out in the pollen season spring through fall. The standard treatment is antihistamines, decongestants and nasal spray and still they may not do a good job. On the other hand treating inhalant allergies in the pollen season can bring immediate relief within same season. This is called co-seasonal treatment. You don’t have to wait for years to see the benefit.

Condition Treated: Candida, Thyroid, Smoke and Food Allergies
Initials: J. F.
Date: 04/20/91
Story: It has been about one year since my first visit. Over the last couple of years prior to my visit, I had gradually become "lifeless". I could not do anything except work and that was a struggle. I had complained to my doctor but was never given any solutions or remedies. I was told "Stress" was causing my problems. In the last year I have been found to need the Candida diet, I take Nystatin and CET injections. I have even learned to give my own injections which I never thought possible. But I was so sick I knew it would help me feel better. I have been through the food elimination diet and now eliminate those foods that caused me to have reactions. I now take thyroid pills and have energy to do yard work. We even have our garden started for the year. After 20 years all headaches, heartburn, no energy -- (gone). Things are great, I feel good.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: We physicians when we can’t find a cause we often tend to blame on “stress”. This is a matter of opinion diagnosis. In environmental medicine we don’t look for the cause but look for the demonstrable cause. We demonstrated in this case that she has problem with yeast overgrowth, low thyroid and food allergies by testing and either eliminating the allergen or desensitization or treating the underlying endocrine problem which was thyroid in this case. This is how we impart more power to you.

 

Condition Treated: Dust and Molds, Candida
Initials: P. G.
Date: 04/12/91
Story: I finally had enough sneezing, coughing and wheezing. I decided to give AllergyTreatment a try. In just five short weeks, I feel 100% better. No more coughing and wheezing and minimal sneezing. I feel like a new person. I still have some areas to work on, but with just a simple change of diet and minor environment changes and exercise, I really feel good. It has seemed so easy now. I only wish I had come here sooner. I know it will take some time to recover fully and get back to my real self again, but I'm able to do it without drastically changing my lifestyle or losing my pets.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: In these success stories you repeatedly see that inhalant allergies though bring so much misery for the patients but it is so easy to treat. Within five injections Paul states that he is 100% better. It is because of new method of allergy testing called serial dilution testing where after the testing you can pinpoint the treatment dose and then it is just a matter of taking a few injections at weekly interval to reach the maintenance dose. How do you spell relief? SDT (serial dilution testing)!

 

Condition Treated: Candida, Thyroid, Vitamins, Magnesium, and Dust and Mold Allergies
Initials: V. S.
Date: 03/30/91
Story: I started seeing Dr. Sultan following a severe allergic reaction which put me in the hospital. I had severe hives and my head swelled almost double in size. Upon examining my health history, we could see many health problems. I had chronic cervical strain (neck and shoulder pain), carpal tunnel syndrome (pinching and pain in the wrists), headaches, fatigue, depression, lack of concentration, and lack of sexual response. After testing and several months of treatment, I feel like a new person. I'm energetic, have very few aches and pains, headaches are about gone and I just feel better all over. I can concentrate more clearly and am more interested in sex. After years of feeling generally bad all over, I feel I can now enjoy my daily life!
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: She had severe allergic reaction called anaphylactic reaction. The patient can die within minutes if appropriate help is not available. The key factor in preventing such life threatening reactions is to figure out all the underlying causes which may not necessarily be all allergies alone. Usually with allergies is combined nutritional and endocrine problem. Like in this patient besides yeast overgrowth and dust and mold allergy she had low thyroid and magnesium deficiency. There is something interesting to learn from her reduced sex drive. Remember, when you are sick sex drive is first to go and when you get well is the last one to come back. When your sex drive is back it means that you are doing really well. When you are sick, nature wants to conserve everything and considers sex as the least important activity to spend energies on (though some people may disagree and consider sex drive as the most important thing even during sickness).

 

Condition Treated: Dust and Mold, Candida, Thyroid, Magnesium and Other Minerals
Initials: J. S.
Date: 03/30/91
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.

 

Condition Treated: Candida, Dust and Mold Allergy

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: 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.

 

Condition Treated: Asthma, Severe Allergies
Initials: J. S.
Date: 07/01/93
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 school work 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”.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments: There is no reason for people to suffer from headaches. These can be debilitating. We have great success in treating headaches. New patients who come to us with severe headaches, our standing instruction to them are that if from this point onward if you ever get bad headache give us a call and we will do our best to abort that headache. Though there are numerous causes for headaches but main causes include mineral deficiencies, food allergy, chemical sensitivity and hypothyroidism. Taking care of these invariably results in resolution of even severe headaches.

 

Condition Treated: Bronchial Asthma, Repeated Pneumonia
Initials: M. D.
Date: 6/24/92
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.

 

Condition Treated: Candida
Initials: B. V.
Date: 03/05/94
Story: I'm not sure that the symptoms were from job stress, Candida, or a combination of both. Because when I left my job a majority of symptoms went away.
One good thing about the treatment was that I watched what I ate more carefully and I lost some weight.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: It may be difficult for a person to know what is coming from stress and what is from the physical ailment. However one of the most important discoveries made in the field of environmental medicine is that serious mental symptoms do not result from psychological factors but from physical factors. Psychological factors can aggravate a given condition but do not cause it and this is a very important distinction to make. For e.g, if you have migraine headaches, a day of stress at work can precipitate a migraine headache. On the other hand if you don’t have asthma, no matter how much stress is put on you, you cannot come with an asthma attack.

 

Condition Treated: Thyroid, Low/Inactive - Chronic Fatigue
Initials: T. N.
Date: 10/30/93
Story: After years of daily tiredness and fatigue, I asked to be treated by the Allergy Treatment Center for chronic fatigue syndrome. I would come home from work and immediately lay down for 2-6 hours every night, in addition to my overnight sleeping. Even though I ate a healthy diet and regularly exercised, I always felt terrible. During treatment, the doctor discovered low thyroid and began to prescribe (desiccated) thyroid pills for one. I now can last an entire 8 hour work day and come home and enjoy activities where I would normally be in bed sleeping.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: Let’s see how chronic fatigue syndrome is diagnosed. Let’s say you go to physician A who knows five causes for chronic fatigue and he runs the test and doesn’t find them he is likely to declare you having chronic fatigue syndrome because there is no test to prove it. It is just by exclusion. Now you go to physician B who knows ten causes and looks for all those ten causes and doesn’t find any and then he will declare you having chronic fatigue syndrome. Now you go to physician C who knows fifteen causes for chronic fatigue and he runs and find that fourteen causes are negative and the fifteen comes out positive. He treats you and you get better. After all you didn’t have chronic fatigue syndrome!. In reality I have rarely seen a true case of chronic fatigue syndrome which did not respond to the interventions we have to offer.

 

Condition Treated: Allergies and Low Thyroid
Initials: N/A
Date: 03/05/94
Story: I had uncontrollable itching of my arms. I talked to a few different doctors about it. The responses I got varied: dry skin (my skin looked perfectly normal) in so many words they said it was mostly in my head (the more you scratch, the more you think you itch), etc. I am now getting allergy shots and I no longer have the itching.
I was also extremely cold all the time. I had a real hard time waking up in the morning. I was always so cold, I used a space heater almost constantly at work. Now, I'm hardly ever cold, not nearly as tired, and rarely use my space heater.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: Skin itching is a common complaint. When severe it is called pruritus. Here you have lots of itching but no rash to explain it. It is one of the common symptoms of allergy and responds well to allergy treatment. Another point to learn from this case is that when you feel excessively cold and along with that have fatigue including morning fatigue, tiredness by the end of the day, cold hands and cold feet then the chances improve that it is low thyroid.

 

Condition Treated: Candidiasis, Magnesium Deficiency
Initials: J G.
Date: 03/09/94

The responses I got varied: dry skin (my skin looked perfectly normal) in so many words they said it was mostly in my head (the more you scratch, the more you think you itch), etc. I am now getting allergy shots and I no longer have the itching.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments: If you have digestive problems like constipation, diarrhea or constipation alternating with diarrhea one of the most important cause is the yeast overgrowth. It is treated with antifungal medications, diet which consists of being off sugar and yeast and immunotherapy. In her case, only being on diet for two days brought dramatic relief. Rest was taken by treating with magnesium as she was found to have magnesium deficiency.

 

Condition Treated: Inhalants
Initials: A. C.
Date: 11/27/91
Story: I'm her mother, Deborah. I saw a big change in her attitude, in her reaction. She has done well.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: Inhalant allergies especially mold allergy not only affects the respiratory tract and causing runny nose, stuffy nose, coughing and wheezing but it can have a major impact on brain and causing all source of brain symptoms like headaches, depression, anxiety, poor memory, poor concentration and change in attitude. Just treating one cause may be enough to turn you around.

 

Condition Treated: PMS, Marked Fatigue, Severe Headaches
Initials: M. G.
Date: 08/27/92
Story: I came to Dr. Sultan because I was always feeling so bad. I thought there had to be more to life. I had severe PMS (fatigue, depression, sore breasts). I always had what I thought was a yeast infection, but the doctors told me I didn't have one. I took every sinus pill on the market. I was miserable. My husband was miserable. I have been treated for Candida vitamins (I had low thyroid already), and I also needed progesterone supplements. It took some time and a lot of "needles", but it was well worth it. I feel so much happier and just better. My outlook on life has completely changed from the first time I came in this office.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: See how a sickness in one person affects the family as a whole. Because of severe fatigue she was suspected of hypothyroidism and was found to have low thyroid and because of her depression and headaches she was suspected of Candida and treating both things brought great relief and then for PMS taking care of progesterone deficiency brought additional relief.

 

Condition Treated: Allergy
Initials: M. C.
Date: N/A
Story: When I came to Dr. Sultan, I couldn't breathe without sneezing, my eyes were always watery.
Two weeks after my first appointment, I was feeling better and I could go outside without worrying about my allergies flaring up.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: You will repeatedly see the theme that treating respiratory allergy is one of the easiest things to do. If you don’t treat the allergies properly then the person can be miserable for decades. Treat the cause and you will be happy that you did.

 

Condition Treated: Nasal Congestion, Tiredness, Depression
Initials: R. P.
Date: 06/26/93
Story: When I first came to the clinic I was having trouble breathing, depression, short memory and fatigue. The clinic first diagnosed my problems and then set up a three stage treatment plan.  Phase I treated me for common allergies.  Phase II treated me for Candida yeast.  Phase III was really not required. I feel that their treatment assisted my body in overcoming most of my symptoms very quickly.  I had been to numerous doctors prior to ATC and most of them said that I had no problems and would not treat me. I feel that the ATC helped me overcome my symptoms and enabled me to continue my life.
Dr. Sultan’s Comments: When people will come in with significant illness, it is usually that there are multiple causes instead of single cause. We lay out the treatment plan in the form of a roadmap. What Ronald is referring is that he went through phase 1 and phase 2 of testing and that had improved him so much that we not need to look for additional causes.
