Allergy Basics

There is so much confusion around the topic of allergies. Who has them? Who doesn’t? What is a true allergy? What’s the difference between allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances? Can one be cured of allergies or is it something that you just have to suffer with your entire life?


A true allergy is when an individual has an IgE mediated response upon inhaling, ingesting, contacting, or injecting a particular substance. These IgE markers can be detected in your blood. People can experience allergic symptoms without having an IgE mitigated response.  This would be considered an intolerance or a hypersensitivity. People can rid their bodies of hypersensitivities, intolerances, AND true allergies with NAET.


Our bodies are exposed to different substances all the time. When confronted with these various elements, the body initiates an appropriate response in order to protect itself. When your immune system starts to perceive harmless materials as threatening, this is when your body is essentially over reacting and creating symptoms that we associate with allergies.


In the book Say Goodbye to Illness, Dr. Devi Nambudripad states that an allergy is “a condition of unusual sensitivity of one individual towards one or more substances from one’s living environment which may be harmless or even beneficial to a majority of other individuals. In other words, an allergy is an energy imbalance between the electromagnetic energy of the person and the substance causing unpleasant physical, physiological and/or psychological reactions in the person’s body.”

“I've worked with Leslie regularly over the last two years and found her to be professional and deeply knowledgeable.  She has helped me with both pain management and recurring allergies.”
