Spring hasn't always been my favorite season. I spent countless years dreading the pollen swarm that attacked my eyes and nose. In my youth, I spent untold hours at the doctors office getting shots and taking medication to try and suppress the constant sniffling, sneezing, and watery eyes. Even then, I knew there had to be a better solution to this problem.
As I grew older, I learned that sometimes a problem is not always resolved with medications. Sometimes we have to look further, and that is exactly what NAET is all about.
I was first exposed to NAET during a break at a seminar in St. Louis. A fellow doctor took the time to explain this technique to me and it was really quite amazing. The non-invasive, drug-free technique seems strange at first, but you will soon realize how incredibly simple it really is.
So what is an allergy? An allergy is a chronic condition involving an abnormal reaction to an otherwise ordinarily harmless substance. In an allergic person, the allergic substance is perceived to the body as a threat to its well-being. When contact is made with an allergen, this begins the chain of events (immune response) that develops into an allergic response. With NAET, we are able to reprogram how the autonomic portion of your nervous system reacts, thus removing the energetic obstructions and significantly decreasing or eliminating the allergy.
By combining chiropractic principles, applied kinesiology principles, as well as acupressure meridians, we are able to achieve the kind of results people are desperately seeking.
Before we recommend anything to our patients, we are firm believers in fully investigating and trying any new techniques or therapies on ourselves. From personal experience, NAET has helped clear allergies to carrots, poison ivy, and even emotional sensitivities.
A recent example of a patient benefitting from the treatment involves a young girl who was experiencing gastrointestinal discomfort from milk. She was unable to enjoy milk and it was leading her to take lots of unnecessary medications for her abdominal pain. After treating her for milk, we were able to eliminate all discomfort when ingesting milk or milk products. No more medications, no more GI pain, and milk was back in her life!
The treatment has proven to be effective for both air borne allergies like dust, mold perfume, smoke and food allergies such as dairy, wheat, sugar, and shellfish.
What most people don’t realize is that this technique is not just for people with obvious allergy symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes and rashes. Biochemical imbalances may be due to allergies which affect the bodies’ ability to absorb needed nutrients. An example of this is a patient with an iodine allergy may experience a decrease in thyroid function because the thyroid needs iodine to make T3 and T4.
There are options to treating allergies besides medications. Like the solution to any great problem, you have to treat it at the root. With NAET we are able to reprogram how your body interprets the allergy allowing for a diminished or even no response.
