Peanut Allergy Reversed in Majority of Children in Groundbreaking Trial

9/15/2017
I have seen results like these for years! Please contact us if you would like an appointment to discuss.

Researchers at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute in Australia have made a breakthrough in the treatment of peanut allergies in children.

"These children have been eating peanut freely in their diet without having to follow any particular program of peanut intake in the years after treatment was completed," said researcher Prof Mimi Tang.

The new form of treatment combines a probiotic with peanut oral immunotherapy, known as PPOIT. Instead of avoiding the allergen, the treatment is designed to reprogram the immune system's response to peanuts and eventually develop a tolerance. Forty-eight children were enrolled in the trial and were randomly given either a combination a probiotic with peanut protein in increasing amounts, or a placebo, once daily for 18 months.

At the end of the original trial, 82% of children who received the immunotherapy treatment were deemed tolerant to peanuts compared with just 4% in the placebo group.
Tang said the results were exciting and had been life-changing for participants.
"The way I see it is that we had children who came into the study allergic to peanuts, having to avoid peanuts in their diet, being very vigilant around that, carrying a lot of anxiety with that and, at the end of treatment and even four years later, many of these children who had benefited from our probiotic peanut therapy could now live like a child who didn't have peanut allergy."

I have seen this happen with most allergens after treating and optimizing the immune system via the gut. It is a rewarding thing when people who were destroyed by various allergens are able to imbibe or otherwise tolerate substances that caused them very great health distress.
