A Visit from an Allergen

‘Twas the night before spring, when all through the house,

Not a creature was sneezing, not even a mouse;

IgE antibodies were waiting, on the mast cells with care,

In hopes that an allergen, would soon be there;

Diagram of the mechanism of an allergy

The children were nestled all snug in their beds;

While visions of spring-time danced in their heads;

And mama with her ‘kerchief, and I with a Claritin pack,

Had just prepared ourselves for allergy season’s attack,

When out on the lawn, there arose such a clatter,

The allergens had arrived; it was a fact of the matter.

Diagram of a Mast Cell

Away to the mast cells, they flew like a flash,

Binding to IgE antibodies, histamines flew out of the sash

When what to my wondering eyes did appear,

But a stuffy nose, and a river of tears,

With sneezing and itching so lively and quick,

I knew in a moment; I must be allergic.

“Educating Sanesco’s clients is the culmination of a life’s work.” Beginning when she left the hospital environment to manage a functional laboratory, Genova Diagnostics (formerly Great Smokies Laboratories) in 1987, Dr. Connie Shoemaker has continued to increase her knowledge of herbs and biochemistry as a journey of love. With her bachelor’s in science from Western Carolina University, she had worked in hospital laboratories for the first twelve years of her career. Then, personal health challenges led her to discover a new approach to her health and a determination to share it with others. In 1991, she began teaching and educating innovative practitioners in the U.S. and internationally as a manager of marketing, sales, and customer service.

The addition of her Doctor of Naturopathy degree to her existing knowledge base expanded her knowledge and her respect for a more natural approach to healing through balance. At Sanesco, she initially served to oversee technical development of products and services.

Now, she educates Sanesco’s clients on application of the CSM™ model for their specific patients and how to integrate the CSM™ model with other modalities they offer in their practice. In her personal life, Connie educates private clients on various health topics.
