What is SAAT (Soliman's Auricular Allergy Treatment)
Soliman’s Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT) is a single needle solution that reduces or eliminates your body’s sensitivity to allergens. Patients with food allergies, environmental allergies, and seasonal allergies have all reported significant reduction or complete elimination of their allergy symptoms with SAAT.
Margaret has specialized training with Dr. Nader Soliman who completed years of clinical study on thousands of allergy sufferers. Dr. Soliman pioneered the SAAT one needle treatment that often eliminates symptoms by reprogramming the overactive immune response to common allergens.
SAAT may also be a solution for symptoms related to MCAS (Mast Cell Activation Syndrome), histamine intolerance, and Alpha-Gal Syndrome.
SAAT is available to established patients only. At your initial consultation, Margaret will recommend a customized acupuncture treatment plan to prepare your body to receive SAAT treatments.
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS)
Mast Cell Activation Syndrome occurs when mast cells become over reactive. Histamine is one of the many inflammatory chemicals produced by overactive mast cells. MCAS symptoms may range from mild to severe and include hives, flushing, and digestive symptoms. MCAS may also be present when there is brain fog, sinus congestion, runny nose, itchy eyes, or headaches after eating certain foods. Joint pain, fibromyalgia pain, anxiety, and palpitations have also been reported by those with mast cell issues.
Alpha-Gal Syndrome is the so-called ‘red meat’ allergy caused by a tick bite. The Lone Star tick is known to cause sensitivity to a sugar molecule (galactose-α-1,3-galactose) found in most mammals. Alpha-gal can be found in meats such as pork, beef, rabbit, lamb, and venison as well as products made from mammals (including gelatin, cow’s milk, and milk products).
The alpha-gal carbohydrate is found in the tick’s saliva, which is injected into a person’s skin during the tick’s feeding. In response, the person’s body will then release immunoglobulin E antibodies to combat the foreign substance’s presence. Later on, the person’s immune system may mount an attack after red meat is eaten and the Alpha-gal carbohydrate is digested.
Alpha-Gal Syndrome can manifest as hives, swelling, stomach upset, diarrhea, stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, headaches, a drop in blood pressure, and in certain individuals, anaphylaxis. Reactions to eating meat, meat fumes, or food products and cosmetics that contain red meat byproducts may be experienced hours after coming into contact by those suffering with Alpha-Gal Syndrome, making the cause of symptoms difficult to detect.
What is Involved in a SAAT Treatment?
SAAT treatment is offered to established patients. After your initial consultation, Margaret will recommend a customized acupuncture treatment plan to prepare your body to receive SAAT. After a series of treatments, you will be evaluated for sensitivities using kinesiology evaluation (muscle testing).
SAAT is performed using electronic detection of an active point on the ear while you are in contact with the substance being tested. A small 3mm needle is then inserted into the active point. The needle is kept in place with sterile adhesive for 3-4 weeks to desensitize you to the substance being treated.
Avoidance of the allergen is recommended throughout the treatment period. After removal, the substance is slowly reintroduced over the course of a few weeks. In severe cases, such as those that react with anaphylaxis, it is recommended to avoid the substance entirely. SAAT aims to desensitize you so as to avoid anaphylactic reaction to accidental contact or cross contamination.
MCAS and Alpha-Gal treatments require the addition of a bioessence spray to further strengthen your SAAT treatment. Bioessence sprays are priced separately.
How Many SAAT Treatments Will I Need?
SAAT consists of one needle per allergen. After determining that you are clear of MCAS and Alpha-Gal (we test everyone for this), you may receive needles for 2-3 allergens per treatment. Each treatment is approximately 3 weeks between visits. Your results may last from one year to many years with no re-treatment needed. Patients with severe symptoms may require more than one treatment to reduce sensitivities. Many of Dr. Soliman’s patients have reported lifelong relief from their food and environmental allergies.
