"Do you know your children or grandchildren don’t have to suffer or take medications to overcome many childhood allergies?
A mom called our office sounding very frustrated and tired. She explained how Austin, her 2 ½ year old son and her 8 month old daughter, Alexis had developed an unsightly skin rash creating sores all over their legs and back. Alexis had itchy eczema since birth. Austin was also afflicted with dry eczema and cradle cap. The problem was compounded, especially with her son because he naturally wanted to scratch his itch – so much so that his sores would bleed. He was scratching so frequently Mandy had to place in his onesies - those PJ outfits from neck to toes - in the heat of the summer! Mom, dad and kids were miserable.
She had tried a dermatologist and several specialist doctors. This resulted in 2 one-gallon bags full of steroid creams and lotions, (plus several homeopathic remedies). She knew that they were not getting to the root of the problem because everything she had tried, including the steroids, only worked short term. She also made lots of adjustments to the children’s diet without much success.
Within 2 weeks of first visiting us, Austin’s legs and back had cleared up and he was wearing shorts instead of onesies! (See pictures below of before and after). Our testing revealed that for Austin the biggest culprit was an allergy to milk. After testing Alexis, it was discovered that she was allergic to some of the foods Mom was eating due to Alexis still breast-feeding. But mom stated that until both children were we tested she did not know the full range of food problems.
Mom of course is so pleased because everyone is happier. She added “Nothing has given my family these kinds of results like your treatments”.
As told to Dr. Patrick
According to a study released in 2013 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, food allergies among children increased approximately 50% between 1997 and 2011.
“Since infancy, Brooke had allergic-like reactions to many common substances such as milk, chocolate and eggs - ingredients found in many of her favorite things. It was very hard for Brooke, now age six, to enjoy anyone’s birthday celebrations, especially her own, because she could not have cake or ice cream.
While her symptoms were more ‘lifestyle’ than life threatening, I decided to look for someone who could eliminate her food sensitivities using a more natural approach. After visiting with Dr. Patrick for several months, Dr. Patrick was able to reduce sensitivities to two of her most cherished foods - cake and milk!
Brooke loved coming to Dr. Patrick’s office and would draw lots of pictures for him to show her gratitude for his help in overcoming her food sensitivities. Here is the picture she drew of herself eating chocolate cake for the very first time on her 7th birthday!”

PS: Notice the cake is the size of a wedding cake with all those layers! One for every birthday she missed!
Mom: "Arjun, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
Arjun: "When I grow really tall, I want to be a doctor!"
Mom: "And what is your favorite place?"
Arjun: "Dr. Patrick’s office because I get to eat more food!"
Yuba City, California
Note: Arjun was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and was having to follow a very restricted diet until Dr. Patrick was able to desensitize him to a number of different foods. After treatment, experts found that Arjun no longer had Crohn’s Disease.
