Video Transcription:

Deborah: Welcome back, everybody. Okay, ’tis the season for some sneezing, and some coughing, watery eyes, and well, you get it. In Houston it seems we are constantly in the middle of some kind of allergy season. Ragweed, among other things, is in full bloom right now. Medications can get you through, but are they really the best thing for your body? Are you taking care of the problem? Our next guest says no, and is offering a natural solution. Welcome, Dr. Steven Hotze with the Hotze Health & Wellness Center along with his patient, Mike Chinni. Hi.

Dr. Hotze: Thank you.

Deborah: We were just outside and it feels great, but it’s windy and it’s blowing around all that pollen and all the ragweed and stuff. I’m feeling it and so are so many other people. How many of you have allergies? Yeah. That’s life in Houston. All right. You were suffering with allergies. How bad did it get?

Mike: Let me put it this way. We’re at the end of October. I would have been in the hospital at least once and possibly facing a second visit. My allergies turned into asthma in my twenties and, frankly, traditional treatments really didn’t help me. They didn’t help me at all. In high school I was addicted to nose spray. That was the only thing that could keep my nose open where I could breathe. It turned into asthma in my 20s, like I said. I’d be hitting the emergency room. I’d be sucking on my nebulizer two or three times a day. I had one of those big ones that you plug in. Some of your kids might have them. It was really terrible.

Deborah: Dr. Hotze, a lot of what we’re doing with medications, especially when a lot of us self-medicate with over-the-counter…we go there and there’s hundreds of different things up there and we’re just grabbing stuff. We’re not really treating the problem. We’re trying to get rid of symptoms. The underlying problem is always going to be there.

Dr. Hotze: Right. Allergy is an abnormal reaction by your body to normal occurring substances in the environment, things you breathe in the air, weed pollens…this is weed pollen season. Ragweed is number one. We have tree pollen season. That’ll be when the oak pollen covers your car and it’s all green. Grass pollen season, which is later spring, early summer; mold year round in Houston; animal danders, and dust mites which are in our bed.

Deborah: The list goes on and on.

Dr. Hotze: It goes on and on. If a person has an underlying predisposition towards allergies, their body makes antibodies to those allergens, and every time they’re exposed those antibodies become greater and greater and they cause cells in our body, called mast cells, in the inner lining of the mucosal tissue of the nasopharynx and in the lungs…

Deborah: I’m glad you went to medical school.

Dr. Hotze: Yeah, I am too…in the nose and in the lungs, to rupture. The mast cells rupture and they spill a chemical called histamine. Guess what that does? It causes the tissue to swell, become inflamed, and drain. We run out and buy antihistamines to counteract that, but we still haven’t stopped the underlying allergy reaction.

Deborah: Yeah, and then, of course, when we’re taking that medicine over and over again sometimes we do more harm than good.

Dr. Hotze: All these medications are toxins, you have to detoxify, so it can give us temporary relief but it can have long-term adverse effects. The best thing is to get control of the allergies. Michael, for instance, was having asthma attacks three to four times a year for which he had to go to the hospital. I first saw Michael back in 1989, I believe, right?

Mike: Something like that.

Dr. Hotze: A long time ago. He’s been on treatment. We don’t treat using the drugs except acutely, but we want to desensitize. Most people think of allergy treatment as shots. You go get a shot. Instead of shots when we test, we treat by blood to see the level of allergen that the person has, and then instead of giving them shots once a week we concentrate it down and we give you a drop under your tongue once a day.

Deborah: What’s in that drop?

Dr. Hotze: This contains common weed pollens, grass pollens, molds, and animal danders that are common in the environment here, so it causes your body to build up a blocking antibody to block the allergens. Mike’s been on that now for, gosh, I don’t know, 15 years.

Mike: For however long you’ve been preparing it.

Dr. Hotze: I’ve been using drops in adults for 15 years. It’s just remarkable.

Deborah: Were you surprised that this worked? Because it wasn’t the conventional thing that we always hear about.

Mike: I won’t say so much surprised. I was just extremely relieved. There were so many things that I tried. I went to an allergist when I was 22 years old and, I swear to God, his response to me was, “Move to Europe for September and October.”

Deborah: Wow. Not that that’s bad, but it’s not solving the problem.

Mike: No, not at all. Dr. Hotze, he’s a different kind of doctor. He called me up a couple of times on like a late Sunday night out of the blue, “I was at a conference this weekend and I came across a treatment that might work for you. Let’s look into it.”

Deborah: That’s one thing that’s really important to you is to constantly not rely on what you may have learned X number of years ago in medical school.

Dr. Hotze: Constantly learning, asking questions.

Deborah: But what new advances are there? What can we do better?

Dr. Hotze: That’s right.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
