Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT)

If you have allergies, you certainly know it. Symptoms can range from mild to horrific and for some, even fatal.  The southeast holds the top 10 worst cities for environmental allergies in the USA. One can be allergic to almost anything under the sun and the rate of allergy sufferers continues to grow.

Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT) is a newly introduced powerful technique that provides the longest relief from allergy symptoms compared to other common treatments. It is a specialized yet simple acupuncture treatment where one needle placed in the ear can drastically reduce allergy symptoms by 80-95%. The treatment addresses allergies or sensitivities to:

  • Food: gluten/wheat, soy, dairy, corn, eggs, sugar, meat (alpha-gal), nuts, fruits, vegetables, shellfish, preservatives, and more.
  • Environmental: animal dander, dust, molds, chemicals, pollens, trees, grasses, weeds, and more.

Dr. Bonnie Walker of Wellspring Chiropractic and Acupuncture Center in Boone, NC, was trained and certified in Soliman’s Auricular Allergy Treatment under the direction of Dr. Nadar Soliman.  Dr. Soliman is a pioneer in auricular medicine, building upon the work of Dr. Paul Nogier who first mapped the auricular microsystem.

How Does SAAT Work?

Step 1 of SAAT at Wellspring: Identifying the Allergen

If you have identified your particular allergen through allergy testing or process of elimination, we can confirm that allergy through our bio-energetic testing and use of homeopathic vials.  If you are unsure of a specific allergy, we can work together to identify the allergen that you are reacting to.
If you suspect you have an unidentified food allergy, keeping a food log or going on an elimination diet helps to identify the food allergens and will make it easier for treatment.  If you need help to identify a food allergy, let us know.

Step 2 of SAAT at Wellspring: Auricular Allergy Acupuncture

Once the allergen and reactive point in the ear are confirmed, the treatment needle is placed in the ear.  ONE tiny needle is placed for a specific allergy with up to 3-4 different allergens being treated at one time.  The needle is then covered with medical adhesive tape and worn for 3 weeks while the patient limits the exposure to the allergens being treated. The treated ear must be kept dry for the entire 3-week treatment period. Reintroduction of the allergens is managed carefully and systematically.

SAAT Results

The SAAT technique appears to be superior in the treatment of allergies, eliminating allergies regardless of their origin by 80-95%.  The benefits of this method include simplicity of the treatment, the minimum duration of treatment, lack of side effects or complications, lack of medication needed and no repeated visits to medical practitioners.   Since SAAT’s recent introduction, thousands of individuals have been successfully treated and continue to be free of allergies despite repeated exposure to their previous confirmed allergies.  This treatment is also likely to eliminate any cross allergies associated with a particular allergen.
Nader Soliman, M.D developed the SAAT protocol and notes that in over 10 years of practicing this method, there has been no reoccurrence of the same allergy reported except during hormonal shifts such as puberty, pregnancy, menopause, etc.

After being treated, if symptoms are still present it is most likely due to another unidentified allergy that can often be associated with the first allergy.  For example, someone who eats trail mix as a snack could test positive for a nut allergy.  We would treat the specific nut allergy and then see how the patient reacts to the trail mix.  If symptoms persist, we would then test the other items in the trail mix (dried fruit, seeds, chocolate, etc.) to see if there are additional allergies.  When 100% of the items in the trail mix are cleared, the symptoms will subside.

It is extremely important to keep in mind that the success of your treatment depends on identifying all the food, environmental or other allergies you may have.  Results of treatment are individually specific and can take time depending on the depth of allergies you have.

What People Are Saying

This week I finished my first SAAT allergy treatment with Dr. Bonnie Walker at Wellspring. She treated me for Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (which I had never heard of before this), histamine allergy, and tree pollen allergies. This treatment has a cure rate of 90%. The treatment is 3 weeks long. I have taken allergy meds every day of my life for decades and still suffered. I couldn’t take allergy shots because I ended up in the hospital twice from them. I spent a fortune on the SLIT (sublingual immunotherapy) drops for two and a half years. It all seemed to be useless for me. After three weeks of the SAAT treatment, I am completely off allergy meds, and I can go in my basement without a mask on and not get sick from it. I still have some allergies that need treating but I feel like I’m finally breaking free of this thing that has dominated me forever.
