Actually this is not a new type of treatment. We have had it for about 2,000 years and it was pioneered by the Chinese. It is called ACCUPUNCTURE and it works by stimulatin the nervous system the same way this laser does. Great that we still have these tech advances on old treatments but can't help but wonder why the 10 minute laser treatments can run $1,500 while accupuncture is usually around $75 bucks......Hmmmmmm

The $1500 cost is for the entire course of treatment. States that it can be upwards of 50 treatments. Really not that bad of a cost if it saves your worry and helps you feel better at life.

This information will criple those poor asthma and allergy Drs. who would prefer we manage our flare-ups with round the clock breathing treatments and prescription decongestants. Adding up co-pays with patient out of pocket expenses,$1500 is a steal.

Indeed, wonderful if it will really continue to work as well as stated. As in the first post, this 'non-invasive' treatment has been used for thousands of years by trained practioneers WHO HAD FREEDOM TO ACT AND LEARN, AND ACTUALLY HEAL. Look for the orthodox medical society to try to smash this procedure. Yes, I think it is set too expensive, but if it makes a life difference that is worthwhile, and eventually price will come down.

I have gone through this treatment on a different machine and I could not be more happy with the outcome! My allergist wasn't in favor of me trying it, but now I know that it's because I'm not forking money over to her EVERY MONTH! I paid a little over $1200 close to a year ago, but it has saved me A LOT more in the long run!!!

This is another example of psuedo-medical/scientific quackery. The only evidentiary support for the treatment is anecdotal. There is not one piece of scientific evidence to support any claim that it works. Even the makers of it add the "disclaimer" that it isn't intended to treat or cure any disease etc.... What a scam!

Roger is right, this "light allergy therapy" is pseudo-scientific medical quackery. The Channel 4 report by Ali Meyer was entirely credulous -- barely even mentioning that "skeptics question the laser's effectiveness", but including two very supportive patient anecdotes. Dr. Steven Barrett mentions the "BAX 3000" by name in his article, "Allergies: Dubious Diagnosis and Treatment" on the Quackwatch web site, here:

http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTo...

The chiropractor selling this unproven and highly dubious treatment is potentially putting people in grave danger, by convincing them to forego their conventional asthma medications. This behavior is unconscionable, in my opinion, and Channel 4 has done a significant disservice to our community by reporting this story apparently without even consulting proper medical professionals.

Warning! My husband and I paid for this treatment, up front. It was proving not to work for me, as the testing wouldn't even work on me, and the chiropractor would not refund our money. After the third treatment, I told him that I was still allergic to eggs even though he treated me, and he told me that I had to do at least 18 treatments before re-introducing. So, I stuck it out. I did 18. Then he tried to test me. It didn't work. So this chiro told me I must have bad adrenals, and that's why his machine wasn't working. He told me that his Bax 3000 machine wasn't going to work until he treated me for adrenal fatigue(which I don't have the symptoms of). He says it won't work, but he won't refund our $1250. I don't feel very good about this treatment at all!!!!

I recently had a friend spend $1500 on this "cure" without results. I would like to know how many parents with a child who has a severe life-threatening allergy to peanuts would stake their child's life on the BAX 3000? Or perhaps an adult with a peanut allergy? Imagine the lawsuit should someone with a severe allergy die when this miracle cure fails to work?

I am not all supportive of the medical community being all "god" in regards to health - but the the entire theory behind this is treatment/cure beyond suspicious.

This treatment works. I had gluten sensitivity issues and I was allergic to perfume and paper dust. I have NO ISSUES now. This is just another bs attempt to discredit this system. There are plenty of youtube testimonials as well.
I had 9 visits and it costs me a little over $500.
Does this work on peanuts why not?

We've had the entire family treated with the Bax3000/Aura. We investigated the options because our 2-yr old developed SEVERE allergies after two strong antibiotic treatments. We think it created Leaky Gut syndrome.
The Allergist prescribed Prednisone, but after researching it we were convinced a strong steroid was not the best for our daughter.
We found the Bax Laser treatment online and through a Bioveda website. Our treatments at Maximized Health have been great, were reasonably priced and highly effective.
Our daughter is not completely cured, but she's 90+% better!! Before she could not eat ANYTHING but rice, vegetables and water without breaking out in a rash or hives all over her face and body accompanied with itching. Now she can eat most foods, sometimes she may break out behind her knees or inside the bend of her arms, but it's a DEFINITE improvement from where we started.
Our Alternative provider really listened to our concerns, unlike the allergist who knew it all without our input. We can attest to the BAX's effectiveness for our whole family.

I was diagnosed with allergy induced asthma, with severe allergies to pines, weeds and grasses, which are plentiful here in Colorado. I have been prescribed numerous nasal drops, pills, and inhalers which yielded minimal relief, but then brought on negative side effects. Somedays I couldn't even walk across the room because I couldn't get enough oxygen, and I had difficulties thinking straight. I couldn't even get myself showered and dressed a lot of the time. Also my lungs would ache to the point of making me curl over. I gave up all hope, and gave up all meds a couple of years ago, and just tried to 'live' with it after on doctor just looked at me perplexed, and said she didn't know what I had, then proceeded to give me a perscription. After years of suffering a friend told me about this treatment. I am not even through the series and I haven't felt this good since 2004, when I first started getting sick. With the New Year I started working out on my treadmill and today I easily made it to 30 minutes at a brisk walk/jog pace! I don't care if it's Voodoo Magic, it has given me my life back and I can finally be a mother again to my four kids.

There are no guarantees in any treatment.(You should read the consent form for allergy shots. What a joke! After a year of shots, first weekly, then monthly, no guarantee!) You can take ibuprophen, but it won't necessarily get rid of your headache every time. It is why people still die of cancer, aids, etc. Not every treatment will yield the same results for everyone. It is called practising medicine for a reason. At least with this treatment, there are no negative side effects!

Steve you have no idea what you are talking about ! My Doctor Dr Gary Snyder co-invented the device, which took 6 years to develop. No acupuncture is involved in any way! It does use a laser "after" the machine scans your body to find the items that your body has a bad reaction to. In the future, please don't talk about something you have no idea what your talking about!

Actually, Steve is somewhat correct. You are stimulating acupuncture points and a major meridian (energy pathway) with the BAX laser. You can stimulate acupoints with Needles, Electricity (with or without needles), Heat (moxa therapy), Pressure (acupressure/ Shiatsu), or a laser. We've been using lasers to stimulate acupoints for well over a decade. These approaches all have clinical benefits.

He's somewhat correct????? Nothing ever touches your body with the Bax 3000, unlike acupuncture. No needles ever go in your body. In fact, no one ever touches you. Huge difference

This cures allergies being a IgE antibody immune response. IgE anitbody attaches to a Mast cell and then histamine and serotonin are released to fight the misstaken immune invaders or allergens. So by retraining the immune system to not react to mistaken pathogens or allergens is how this works I think. The blood type diet is talking about the IgM blood antibody that is agglutinating to Lectins, specific to the different blood types, in specific foods. This causes all kinds of problems and may have a allergic connection according the Dr. Dadamo. I don't think the lazer does or can do the IgM immune response. If anyone knows let me know please. Many of my allergies are also blood type avoids too. I don't want to assume anything but wanted to point that out.

Wow. Alot of uninformed people making alot of statements on a subject that they know very little about. I have been performing the BAX 3000 treatments for the past three years and have treated over three hundred people. The system has been a life changing experience for many, many people. The principles are sound and it really does work. It is called vibrational medicine and if you read about it you might understand the concept. try reading the book Vibrational Medicine by Dr. Richard Gerber. Until you taste chocolate, you can never really know what it taste's like. We know that God exists but have never actually seen him. There are many things in life that we may not understand but that does not mean that it does not exist or that it is not real. It only means that we dont understand it. Please keep an open mind. This system is the way of the future and the future is now. Please visit my website at www.westendchirocenter.com for more information regarding this incredible technology. God Bless.

Unfortunately this treatment did not work for me either. I was hoping this treatment would help me with my food allergies, gluten, dairy, eggs and fish as well as environmental allergies, dust, mold, cats and feathers. I had 23 treatments and have noticed no changes. I am still unable to eat the above foods and am still getting daily hives and runny nose all things which I was told this treatment would cure.
I am happy to hear this treatment worked for others because I am always hoping people who are so sensitive can find relief. For me this treatment was a waste of time and money and I would not recommend it to others.

I have gone through the allergy laser treatment. Itís been such a wonderful experience. Laser works great. Laser allergy treatment sometimes also called energy based laser treatment claims to be able to permanently cure allergies within 24 hours. If you suffer from allergies, you might benefit from trying laser allergy treatment.
