Low Dose Immunotherapy Allergen Antigen Mixture List

Food Mix and Sub-Mixtures

“Food” Mix – Contains all of the following sub-mixtures, with all foods at roughly the same dilution relative to one another.

Nuts and Peanut are actually 1C (100:1) weaker than the others, because reactions to those foods are typically more severe. Only the corn is made from a manufactured antigen concentrate vial with 50% glycerin as a stabilizer. ALL other foods (individual and mixtures) were made “from scratch” by blending up small amounts of whole foods in a Vitamix blender, drawing out some fluid and filtering it through a Millipore.

This was done because the glycerin used in stock manufactured antigens is almost always derived from corn; and people who are highly allergic to corn react badly to all other manufactured antigens. I had great difficulty treating patients with severe corn allergy using the old LDI mixtures because they had unpredictable and variable reactions that could not be optimized. That is no longer a problem using these new antigens.

This new approach also allows us to give doses at stronger concentrations than the old LDI antigens came in, which seemed to leave at least 10% of patients unsuccessfully treated; and we can now split up various subgroups to give them at different dilutions for more complex allergy cases.

Environmental (“Env”) Mix and Sub-Mixtures

The composite “Env” mixture is comprised of equal parts of the seven sub-mixtures listed below. For this mixture I ordered the sub-mixtures from an antigen supplier, having the individual subgroups assembled for me the way I wanted.

The individual subgroups are available as separate mixtures/dilutions as well, so you can tailor therapy to the individual who may react to one category at a different dilution from another (e.g. anaphylactic reaction to cats, but only mild hay fever from tree pollens).

The Trees, Grasses, Weeds, and Molds mixes are very similar to those items within the “IC” mix that has been included with LDI kits for years. There are some minor differences here and there, some individual species I’ve added that were not in the IC, and a few things I could not find to include – mostly trees and grasses. I believe my Molds mix is more extensive, which may be of help to some with mold sensitivity.

The major difference is within the Animals, Mites and Insects/Bugs subgroups. The IC mix did not have very many animals represented and very few insects/arthropods (cockroach, two species of dust mites, and maybe a couple others).

My Animals mix includes 43 animals, and the Insects/Bugs mix holds 33 types of creepy little arthropods.

The Mites submixture includes 18 total species, rather than just the two most common dust mites that were in the old mixture. This includes species that can cause human infestation like scabies, and other endemic skin mites.

I do not know if the “Bugs” mix could possibly help with allergies to wasp, bee or ant venoms, or perhaps mosquito bite reactions; but the samples are made from whole insects ground up and should therefore include some trace of the venoms. This is NOT the intent however, and these mixes should NOT be used to treat venom reactions in place of conventional immunotherapy that has a good success rate.

There may be expansions and additions to these mixtures over time, as the need arises and discrepancies are found.

Alligator, antelope, armadillo, bison, caribou, cat, chicken, cow, crocodile, dog, duck, elk, emu, goat, moose, musk ox, ostrich, pheasant, pig, quail, rabbit, rattlesnake, turkey, wild boar.

Chemical (“Chem”) Mix

This mixture was made by collecting small samples of hundreds of different chemical products and man-made substances in a jar, all mixed up together.

This included soaps, detergents, cosmetics, toothpaste, deodorant and all other manner of personal care products.

It included solvents and cleaners, paints and paint thinners, nail polish and nail polish remover, and other similar items.

I included gasoline and diesel, engine oils, 2-cycle oil, bar oil for chainsaws, and various other petrochemicals.

It includes all sorts of lawn and garden chemicals like fertilizers, pesticides, bug spray and the like.

I went through stores like Target and Lowe’s and squirted samples of everything I could get me hands on.

I went through a friend’s shop who is an auto mechanic.

I went through another friend’s warehouse space who has a large construction company.

I made sure to add a sample of Formaldehyde, which is have as a standard antigen vial.

I included a paper clip, penny, nickel, cheap earring, pieces of plastics and nylon and other synthetic fabrics, cotton balls, magazine pages and newspaper samples, and other things I could get my hands on.

Let’s just say that jar is a very scary sight.

This mixture has literally thousands of individual chemicals in it.

By comparison, the CF mix produced by the pharmacy only lists about a dozen individual chemicals as ingredients. Only things they could purchase in some sort of standardized “antigen” form. It’s very limited, but has always worked quite well in spite of that.

My new Chem mix has proven to be MUCH broader in scope/coverage and therefore far more effective.

Others

There are some items that I made as separate individual antigens or antigen mixtures and are not within the other broader mixtures. They are more likely to end up being used alone, or are just typically somewhat obscure and isolated in terms of reactivity. This list is likely to grow and change over time.

Artificial Colors (Red 40, Blue 1, Yellow 5 and 6)

Essential Oils (the entire collection offered by both Young Living and DoTerra companies all pooled together)

Gluten (by itself)

Histamine/Histidine (also available with the LDI antigens, for those who don’t use the Allergy series)

Latex

MSG
