Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT)
An effective auricular acupuncture therapy for a wide variety of allergies.
An allergy is when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, called an allergen. Over 50 million Americans suffer from various types of allergies and it is the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. It could be from something you eat, breathe into your lungs, inject into your body or touch. This reaction could cause coughing, sneezing, hives, rashes, itchy eyes, a runny nose and a scratchy throat. In severe cases, it can cause low blood pressure, breathing trouble, asthma attacks, and anaphylaxis, a life-threatening reaction.
In 2018, roughly 8% of adults and 7% of children were diagnosed with hay fever. Food allergies affect approximately 32 million Americans (AAFA, 2019). Each year in the U.S., it is reported that anaphylaxis to food resulted in 30,000 emergency room visits. Approximately 5% of the US population experience an insect sting allergy each year (Journal of Asthma and Allergy, 2015). The most common cause for anaphylaxis are medicines, food and insect stings. Nevertheless, according to a time trend study conducted from 1999 to 2010, medicines cause the most allergy related deaths.
There is no cure for allergies. You can manage allergies with prevention and treatment. Lastly, it is among the country’s most common, but overlooked, diseases.

A sublingual treatment remedy will be recommended for patient to take for a minimum of 6 weeks and a retesting of metal and adhesive after.
SAAT Treatment Method:
Initial visit will consist of complete health consultation followed by SAAT allergen testing. During testing the provider will provide a step-by-step instructions on the testing procedure. Blood and skin pinprick test are not provided during SAAT allergy testing but rather consist of a non-invasive neuromuscular testing.
The SAAT treatment will begin once the specific allergenic acupoint is determined for the specific allergen. The needling procedure involves a thin 3mm needle inserted into the determined allergenic acupoint. The needle is then covered with a medical adhesive tape to prevent the needle from falling out. The needle will be retained on the ear for 3 to 4 weeks.
*Please inform the provider if there is any discomfort (rare) during the testing or treatment process.
What to Expect:
SAAT treatment is to assist with reduction of the allergic reaction to the tested and treated specific allergen(s). Blood test result for antibodies (IgE) may remain unchanged following a SAAT treatment. A patient will be provided with a gradual exposure plan after the completion of the SAAT treatment. The gradual exposure is to prevent severe allergic reaction and ensure the SAAT treatment was successful. If patient continue to experience allergic reaction a re-treatment will be provided for alpha-gal at no additional charge. Patient with severe allergy to certain allergen such as peanuts or walnuts are encourage to continue to avoid exposure after SAAT treatment.
SAAT treatment is not a cure but a treatment method that enable the body to be desensitized to certain allergen(s). Although the procedure has been reported to have 80 to 90 percent success rate not all will experience similar outcome.
