Another standard treatment is using drugs, either antihistamines or drugs like claritin steroids to control allergic symptoms. Unfortunately, this does not correct the underlying problem, and often has serious long term side effects. The most effective treatment option until now has been complete avoidance of the offending allergen(s). This can be difficult at best, and impossible in some cases. Now however, there is an alternative...
We treat allergies at Blue Ridge Family Chiropractic & Diagnostics using a treatment called Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique (N.A.E.T.). The treatment is non-invasive, painless, completely natural and works on most allergy symptoms. In some patients, their allergies will become completely eliminated permanently with this method. In many patients, if their allergy doesn't completely go away, their symptoms are greatly reduced.
We have treated many patients using N.A.E.T. and their allergies were completely eliminated; however some patients will still need to avoid contact with the allergen even after treatment. We even treat patients who have anaphylactic reactions to allergens, however the protocol is a bit different, but nonetheless still very successful.
Some patients we treat already know what they're allergic to, however many do not and we must test them first. Allergy testing at our clinic is also non-invasive, painless and natural. We use a system called Muscle Response Testing, where we measure the strength of the patient's arm while the patient simply holds a sample of the allergen in their hand. A measured weakness is due to the effect of an allergy the person is touching. This method of testing is much safer than some traditional medical methods (including Intra-dermal tests, patch tests and scratch tests).
Depending on the patient, the 'basics' list may be somewhat different, but most of the time the list includes eggs, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin B, Sugar, minerals, vitamin A, iron, grains, salt, chlorine and corn. Items looked at (tested/treated) next include artificial sweeteners, food preservatives, food coloring, MSG, wheat, potassium, magnesium, sulphur, essential fats and spices. After these are checked/treated if necessary, we look at chemicals, vaccinations, viruses and items specific to the patient's problems. We have many patients whose problems cleared just after treating the basics before even getting to their specific allergen.
Using N.A.E.T., we can also test and successfully treat allergies to temperatures or certain weather conditions. For example, some patients have worse symptoms (aches & pains, sinus, headaches, etc.) when it's rainy, damp, cold, humid or hot outside. Some people are 'hypersensitive' to different temperatures and conditions and this can be treated by N.A.E.T.
N.A.E.T. allergy elimination treatments get great results with symptoms like sinusitis, headaches, skin rashes/hives, chronic cough, sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, hyperactivity (in children), muscle and joint pain, ringing in the ears and chronic yeast infections. This method also allows us to get great results with conditions like Fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue and attention deficit disorder.
Allergy Elimination Treatment
When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways (called meridians), or we can say, it disrupts the normal flow of energy through the body's electrical circuits. This energy blockage causes interference in communication between the brain and body via the nervous system. This blocked energy flow is the first step in a chain of events which can develop into an allergic response.
The treatment is painless and takes 5-10 minutes. Afterward, the patient is instructed to rest and continue to hold the allergen for a 20 minute period. After the 20 minutes, follow-up muscle response testing is performed to determine whether or not the treatment took. If successful, the allergen is removed from the patient's hand and they are instructed to strictly avoid the allergen for the next 25 hours.
The allergen is re-tested on the patient's next visit; if successful we move on to the next allergen to be treated. If the patient is not anaphylactic, they are instructed to try the allergen and report what happens to fully determine whether or not they have been cleared.
