Allergy Therapy

Identifying allergens can contribute to a return to optimum health.

Allergies are a combination of various body systems and organs being out of balance including the immune system, detoxification system, adrenal responses and central nervous system.

Many people are not aware that their health problems may be caused by an allergy to a particular substance that they are eating, drinking, or encountering in their daily environment. Our modern diet is full of chemicals, additives and preservatives; our foods are sprayed with pesticides and even our organic food does not contain the nutrients that were available to our grandparents. These ‘anti nutrients’ affect our detoxification systems, leading to lower energy and unnecessary triggering of our immune system.

Muscle resistance testing (kinesiology) is a quick, painless and effective way to identify food intolerances, sensitivities and allergies. By monitoring an indicator muscle that offers information to a trained therapist via the body's energy meridians – the theory being that when exposed to an allergen, the muscle will weaken to indicate an allergy – it is possible to test for 50-60 different substances/foods during your first and subsequent session(s). By eliminating or reducing the offending foods, the body's stress responses, digestive system and immune system are able to begin to rebalance, allowing a return to optimum health. Please also see NAET for more information about managing allergies.
