  • According to your history and symptoms you need to find out the allergen which is hurting you, by observing your daily lifestyle properly.
  • Best treatment for allergy is to avoid the allergen.

  • There is no definitive cure for allergy, but you can test allergy by blood test now.
  • With blood test you can check around 3000 allergens causing harm to your body.
  • Many of my patients get relief by yoga especially pranayama and sudarshan kriya. So, you can also do that.

Hello doctor,

I have attached my reports. Please advise.



I have seen all your reports.

  • You have many ingredients which you are not allergic to.
  • So, continue taking those food items which you are not allergic to.
  • Avoid those substances to which you are allergic like egg white, cow milk, wheat etc.
  • When you taste new food items, take it separately and wait to see if there is any allergy to that substance.
  • Keep your own record of allergens by observing and noting down.
  • Take medications whenever you encounter any allergy.
  • Many of my patients get relief by yoga especially pranayama and sudarshan kriya. So, you can also do that.

Take care.
