Mary D says about Allertone "My sixteen-year-old daughter suffered from hay fever each summer and over the counter remedies were not offering any relief. This year she’s been taking the Allertone and hasn’t had one symptom as yet. I’m happier because she’s not taking chemical remedies and she’s happier to be getting relief! The success of the allergy tonic in treating my daughter’s hay fever would make me consider Dr Clare for other treatments in the future." *React Tea Bags go well with Allertone

"I went to Dr.Clare a number of years ago with Chronic Sinuses. I had spent an awful lot of time and money on antibiotics that weren’t improving the problem. With Dr.Clare’s help, I cut out some foods from my diet that were causing my sinuses to flare. Three other members of my family have also attended Dr. Clare for various reasons and she has helped all of them hugely. I couldn’t recommend this clinic enough. Thank you."
