Chico Sucks…If You Have Allergies - Dr. Patrick’s Allergy Story

Learn how you can enjoy the beauty of life in the North State and breathe easier!

Chico Allergy sufferers find relief at Digestion Relief Center of Chico, CA…If you suffer from allergies! In the fall of 1999 my wife Kristan, and I were so excited to move to Chico. On September 13, we drove into town greeted by a beautiful sunrise. We knew that we had found a great community with wonderful outdoor recreation and people who made Chico one of the most special places in Northern California.  

Then Spring came…. And along with the Sacramento Valley's incredibly beautiful spring came itchy eyes, runny noses and headaches. In a matter of days, our fairy tale like life in Chico became a living hell because I experienced the worst allergy symptoms I had ever had. 

Many of you know what I’m talking about.  Spring and summer in Chico and the Sacramento Valley can be a disaster…burning and itchy eyes that won’t quit. You blow your nose, and within 2 seconds you have to blow it again, with no relief. 

Flowers, and perfumes would set me off for hours. And the nut trees really drove me nuts too - Especially the walnuts! The symptoms were so severe that at times that I’d just leave work early if I could, to go home and sleep.

Things were so bad, it looked like we were going to have to pull up stakes, leave Chico, and find somewhere else to live. Then, I asked an important question. “How would I treat a patient with this problem?”

So it was, “Physician Heal Thyself!” I called an out of town colleague and scheduled a series of visits at his office to harmonize the energy of my body with the energies of the things I was sensitive to so they would not bother me any more. Within a few weeks, my symptoms were gone without shots or drugs. No more anti-histamines for me because my body had been desensitized. No more time lost at work, or missed gatherings with friends because of the symptoms of allergies.  And for the first time in my entire life I could smell sweet honeysuckle and roses without fearing that I would pay the price for days later.  Ahhhh…once again, life in Chico could be enjoyed.

Since that time, I have focused my work and extensive post-graduate education for the last 17 years on helping people with digestion disorders and sensitivities to foods.  No other doctor in the Northern California has as much experience and training in alternative approaches to helping you with these problems. My commitment to you is that we will do everything we can to help you live your life free of allergy-like symptoms.
