Natural Relief for Food Intolerances

Dr. Zafis, DC has been helping patients manage their symptoms to food intolerances with great success in Sonoma County since 1995. Food sensitivities and food allergies are very different reactions in the body.

A food allergy produces an “IgE” reaction in the body. Food allergy typically causes itchy, hives, skin issues, and more serious reactions. Food sensitivities can cause many symptoms, however, typically food reactions that affect the digestive system are food sensitivities, not food allergies.

Patients have come into the clinic after being tested by their allergy doctor. The allergy doctor has told them that they are not allergic to the food with allergy testing even though the patient has obvious reactions to that food. Food allergies are very different than food sensitivities.

The clinic uses many different therapies to address food intolerances.

Natural Therapies Used in the Clinic:  

Nerve Interference

The nervous system controls many functions of the body. Nerve interference along the spinal cord may cause a muscle spasm, pain, and dysfunction to organs. The office performs on all patients a very gentle adjustment to the spine to address nerve interference in the spine.

Targeted Nutritional Therapy

Many patients come into the office after not responding to other forms of treatment. Dr. Zafis, DC uses the history, exam, medical tests, and Applied Kinesiology to assess the situation with each patient.  

Applied Kinesiology is a chiropractic technique taught in chiropractic schools that helps assess function in the body. It is very specific and detail-oriented and is a valuable tool for Doctors across the country. At one point 18,000 Chiropractors were using this technique.

This technique has been researched and published in several medical journals including the International Journal of Neuroscience, Perceptional Motor Skills, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, and American Journal of Sports Medicine.  

This system uses the nervous system to assess imbalances and specific biology in the body. It is used to assess which nutritional formulas best helps the patient at that specific point in time.  

It is also beneficial in identifying which foods cause imbalances in the body that may result in headaches, pain, fatigue, brain fog, and many other symptoms.

Chiropractic Acupressure Therapy

The NAET and BioSet techniques combine several styles of therapies including chiropractic, applied kinesiology, and traditional Chinese medicine. 

These techniques are a gentle, non-invasive, natural approach to health.  They are holistic therapies that support the body and may help reduce sensitivity reactions. These techniques are used In combination with nutritional therapy and other therapies.

Cranial Therapy

This technique assesses the correct position of the cranial bones. The position of these bones can be changed if head trauma has occurred such as from a car accident or sports injury.

These chiropractic techniques, in combination with nutritional therapy, have helped patients manage their health issues.
