Say Goodbye to Allergies!!
In March of 2016, we had a practitioner open house at Leaves of Life, and I had the pleasure of connecting with Ginny Rockenbaugh, a local dietitian who does allergy elimination laser treatments.
Once I started treatments with Ginny and could quantify my own results (see my testimonial below), I began referring patients to Ginny almost daily – most of whom also had significant relief from food, environmental and other allergic responses. Through trial and error, we found the patients who had the best results were addressing any digestive issues alongside laser treatments.
Because so many patients were finding relief from these treatments, Ginny’s practice quickly filled up, and patients were waiting 2-3 months to start treatment.
So… drum roll please!!… about two months ago, Leaves of Life purchased our very own own ASA laser! Patients are amazed at the accuracy of the laser in pinpointing specific allergens and areas of concern, as well as receiving significant symptom relief. We’re excited to be able to offer this therapy to our patients – just one more piece of the holistic picture we’re trying to build here!
How it works:
The treatment takes between 20-30 minutes and is non-invasive and completely pain-free.
Laser allergy treatment can provide relief from food, environmental, animal and seasonal allergies and also benefit the following conditions
- Body Pain
- Skin conditions (Eczema, Psoriasis, rashes)
Allergies and Eczema
“My daughter suffered her entire life with many environmental allergies and eczema. We tried many over the counter and prescription meds to treat her symptoms. We found that they would help slightly, but nothing ever took her symptoms away. That’s when I started looking for a therapy that wasn’t invasive and didn’t involve taking meds. I started reading about laser therapy and immediately scheduled an appointment with Ginny.
After 2 sessions I noticed her eczema was improving. After the 4th session all her eczema was gone. It is now 3 years later and she continues to be eczema-free! Based on my personal experience, I know first-hand the potential benefits of this machine. As a medical professional, I’m excited to now be able to provide this service to our patients.”

Bees, Beer, and Barkers
“From an early age, I’ve struggled with asthma and allergies, which, despite my best efforts, have not responded well to natural therapies.
Over time, I’ve become intolerant to multiple foods – including wine and beer. Also, as a new beekeeper, it was frustrating to find that bee stings would swell up for a full week, driving me completely bonkers with the incessant itching. And though I love dogs, being in their presence would trigger asthma, itchy eyes and runny nose within about an hour, sooner if the dog was particularly active
I arrived at our first session on a particularly overwhelming day at the office. Ginny strapped a wrist cuff on me and we chatted while the machine used biofeedback to scan me (the machine can test for over 100,000 substances, including emotional states, foods, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, heavy metals, viruses, pesticides, bacteria and more, but it divides these into 13 different “chunks” because asking the body that many questions at once would not yield accurate results). Up on the screen came the list of things “bugging” my system. My jaw dropped to see “overwhelmed” right on the top of the list. The food list was mostly familiar: eggs, dairy, gluten and sugar, plus a few other things I hadn’t known were an issue.
Ginny began stimulating acupuncture points with a red/green/blue laser, which triggers an endorphin release while the wrist cuff simultaneously reintroduced frequencies that matched my list of allergens. She explained that this reprograms cellular immune memory, essentially convincing the body that things it previously considered allergens are, in fact, harmless. During the 30 minute session, I became so sleepy I could barely keep my eyes open. Ginny said this was common and usually short-lived. By the time the session was completed,I felt the most relaxed and emotionally centered I could remember feeling for a very long time. Ginny treated me for eggs, dairy, sugar and a few other things, and I was told to avoid these foods for the next 24 hours.
Because my symptoms of discomfort were very mild with these foods, and because I rarely ate them, I was uncertain how much difference the first session made for my allergies. Over the next few sessions, we cleared multiple vitamins, minerals, amino acids, food additives and more foods. I was unsuccessful at clearing for pollen and mold, but I attributed that to my inability to avoid these post-treatment for 24 hours since my windows are open a lot at home.
After the 4th session, I decided to move my bee hives about 15 feet to a new location that would offer them afternoon shade…my reward was 5 stings….which never swelled or itched at all. In fact, 3 days afterward, I could not even see any evidence of the stings. A week or so later, a friend brought over some special wine she’d found while traveling, and I decided to indulge. It was about 6 pm the next evening before I realized I had suffered NO consequences. Several exposures to dogs over the past 6 weeks have also been uneventful.
The amazing thing to me is that we hadn’t even treated for any of these things with the laser, but because we’d layered off many other burdens, this made my immune system more tolerant.
Many patients want to know if allergies are eliminated “forever”, and the answer is that if the same internal conditions that precipitated the inappropriate immune response persist or return, the body could again become sensitized. As with anything, the best results, whether short or long-term, are seen with a holistic approach to improving overall health…an approach that encompasses a healthy diet, lifestyle and stress management.
