Allergies

In some ways PsychoNoetics started with allergies. I have always had allergies and the physical healing part of my work started when I became trained as an NAET * practitioner.

(*Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique, an allergy therapy based on a kinesiological diagnosis and acupuncture or acupressure therapy clearing.)

Allergies are the hardest things to heal. This is because they are not a disease state in themselves, but rather a healthy, defense mechanism run wild. An allergy starts with the association of a toxic stimulus with one or more innocuous ones. These associations create a category of stimuli that your immune system recognizes and reacts to as toxic and threatening. Thereafter, whenever these formerly innocuous stimuli are encountered, the body defends against them as if they are identical to the associated toxin. They have become allergens!

This kind of associative learning is not only normal; it is essential to our survival. It is what teaches us to unthinkingly avoid putting our hand in the fire or reflexively put our foot on the brake when the light turns red. Despite being normal, allergies can make our lives miserable and in extreme cases, endanger our health.

Associative learning is not only the way allergies form; it is the way they spread. For instance, many of us lose the enzyme to digest milk when we get out of infancy, but though it gives us indigestion, we like a plate of ice cream for desert. When we eat it after other foods, however, the toxicity of the undigested milk can associate with these other foods, and they can become "allergized".

Unlearning Allergies

So we don't heal an allergy, rather we unlearn it; we reverse the processes by which the allergy has been learned. When you come to me with an allergic reaction, I investigate what you have become allergic to, and then clear not only the reaction itself, but also the allergic associations and the way in which the immune system is triggered.

Even then, allergies cannot always be cleared permanently. They tend to come back. In much the same way as they were originally learned; they are re-learned. So sometimes the best you can do is manage your allergies, clearing or deconstructing them when they become bothersome.*

*When I first started working as an NAET practitioner, I was frustrated by the fact that some of my patients would regain their allergies, and I suspected that I was doing something wrong. However in time, I had the opportunity to treat people who were initially treated by very advanced practitioners and they too had relapsed. This motivated me to change my approach from allergy elimination to allergy management.

All allergies can be cleared. However, that does not mean you can come to tolerate exposure to every substance. Some so-called allergies are really incompatibilities or even toxins, and exposure to them will not only create a defensive reaction, but also "allergize" other substances that are associated with them.

Allergy clearing and allergy management

I offer two related services insofar as allergies are concerned.

  1. I do distant healing/clearing of allergies, clearing as many as you can tolerate in one session (usually two or three).
  2. I teach people how to diagnose and clear their allergies themselves so that they can manage them when they come back, and gradually become independent of my services. I encourage all my clients who have allergies to partake in the allergy clearing workshops that I offer periodically via telephone conference. As we clear allergies together, your bodymind starts to learn how to do it, and soon you develop the ability to clear on your own.
