Seasonal Allergies vs. Other Allergies

Acupuncture is highly effective for treating seasonal allergies. The protocol I recommend is a series of annual treatments, which typically begin in winter, before allergy season has started. When a patient has other kinds of allergies in addition to seasonal allergies, I recommend NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique). I also recommend NAET for all children who suffer from allergies and or asthma, because it’s the only protocol I know that can eradicate allergies altogether.

What is NAET?

NAET is an amazing protocol, which was created by a doctor named Devi Nambudripad to combat her own debilitating illnesses. It combines acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy and kinesiology to systematically clear a person of sensitivities. I have successfully treated seasonal allergies; asthma; food allergies like lactose intolerance, stone fruit sensitivity, wheat intolerance; systemic yeast conditions; skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema; and thyroid conditions.

Allergy As a Cause of Illness

An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity to one or more substances. When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockage in the body, disrupting 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, which begins a chain of events that can develop into an allergic response.

An individual can be allergic to anything in the environment, such as food, nature (trees, flowers, weeds, molds, vines), pets, chemicals, inhalants, drugs, clothing, paints, plastics, radiation, etc. Symptoms can range from mild reactions to life-threatening illnesses.

Undiagnosed allergies are often the cause of common or chronic illnesses which, when left untreated can result in serious energetic and physical imbalances. These imbalances lead to a diminished state of health. By reprogramming the brain and removing the blockages, NAET allows the body to regain perfect balance (homeostasis) and to reach optimum health.
