Allergies and Sensitivities

An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity to one or more substances. The allergic substance, known as an allergen, is viewed by the immune system as a threat to the body's well-being.

Allergens cause blockages in the energy pathways called Meridians, disrupting the normal flow of energy.  Allergies are the result of these energy imbalances in the body, leading to a diminished state of health in one or more organ systems. 

Many times the allergic reactions mimic other conditions:   

Respiratory problems: bronchitis, pneumonia, & asthma;    Circulatory problems: chest muscle pains, poor circulation, rapid heartbeats, heart irregularities;   Gastrointestinal problems: indigestion, abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, ulcers;   Genito-urinary problems: kidney & bladder infections, prostate troubles, menstrual syndromes, impotency, infertility;   Musculo-skeletal problems: unexplained pain, headaches, backaches, arthritis, restless leg syndrome; Brain symptoms: brain fog, depression, anger, ADHD, learning disorders; Skin problems: eczema, boils, slow healing wounds; Environmental reactions: sensitivity to chemicals, pollens, perfumes, animal dander, carpets, building materials, etc....

Just about any health condition could be a symptom of underlying allergies!

What is the treatment?

NAET® is a natural, drugless and painless method that can be used safely on all individuals (infants to the elderly) to alleviate symptoms arising from allergens. Acupressure points are used to balance the whole body, mind and spirit. Treatments are done in the presence of a given allergen, so that an allergic reaction will not result upon future contact with that same substance. The patient is "cleared" of the allergy to that substance.
