"I was having severe reactions to food (allergies), abdominal
pain, headaches, not feeling well, and a variety of other things when I came to see Dr. Barkins. Some of the allergies
I had been living with for as long as 16 years. I avoided certain foods like avocado and walnuts. But, if I accidentally ingested
something I was allergic to, I was miserable, and some reactions were severe.
I have always loved avocados and was unhappy because I could not have them. My first allergic
reaction was a rash from head to toe. The next reaction was severe. After ingesting just a very
small amount of avocado, I started sneezing over and over, my eyes and nose were running like a faucet had
been turned on, I started coughing, my eyes were itching, and my breathing was wheezy. I took
Benedryl, and the symptoms improved. But, one eye was swollen shut for three days, I had pain deep in my joints, and for about
a week and a half I just felt generally achy (flu-like).
I saw Dr. Barkins she did a variety of tests and found parasites (which she treated) and some allergies I did not
even realize I had. Dr. Barkins treated the allergies with the Laser Acupuncture. After the treatments, I was a little
apprehensive to try avocado again because my allergy was so severe. But, I am thrilled to say, after sixteen
years, I can once again eat avocados. I can go to a Mexican restaurant and have guacamole, which I absolutely
love! We are chipping away at some of my other issues, and I am happy to say I am seeing definite concrete results.
Anyone thinking about getting treatment from Dr. Barkins should keep an
open mind and try it; it works.”
