Food allergies abound today. They affect people of all ages; infants to small children, teenagers on up to senior citizens. Some of the most common food allergens that we hear about today are: peanuts, nuts, wheat, gluten, dairy, shellfish, corn, and soy. There are people who are diagnosed with Celiac Sprue and others who are labeled as gluten intolerant. Lactose intolerance is now considered a world wide phenomena. Needless to say, food allergies have become a growing concern in just the last 20 years.
In my practice, I see a lot of health problems related to either food allergies or food intolerances. Each time that you inhale, ingest, have contact with, or inject a substance that you have an allergy or intolerance to the body creates a histamine response. True allergic responses will not only create histamine but also IgE titers in the blood. This reaction can last up to days, according to Dr. Nambudripad. It’s the histamine in the body that causes all those unpleasant symptoms that we associate with allergies.
Western medicine has people believing that there is no solution for food allergies and intolerances and that the only answer is pure avoidance. But what happens when the individual is allergic to so many foods that it makes it almost impossible to eat without getting sick? How does one eat when they are allergic to ingredients that are in almost everything that we eat, like basic vitamins and minerals? And what about conditions like diarrhea, constipation, and chronic sinusitis or life challenging illnesses like Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, GERD, IBS, and Allergic Asthma? These too can be related to food allergies. Once the allergy is treated, symptoms AND disease fall away.
NAET, is an innovative and lasting solution in the treatment of all kinds of allergies, including food allergies. Yes, even people with Celiac Sprue! NAET works for mild to severe allergic reactions; from mild intestinal discomfort and hay fever to full blown anaphylactic shock reactions. If you are wondering whether or not NAET is right for you, please, read the book entitled "Say Goodbye to Illness", or give us a call. We would be happy to clear up any confusion.
“I started working with Leslie after I lost hope with solving colitis seeing western medicine doctors. Kaiser had me on 5 different medications some of which were causing debilitating side effects including gout. I met with Leslie and she looked at all the tests I had been taking and came up with a plan of action of how to heal my conditions. Using NAET, acupuncture, and diet recommendations I am currently not taking any prescribed medications and learning how to manage colitis and gout on my own. Leslie has been great to work with. I really appreciate how attentive and thorough she is even with the smallest details. I would highly recommend seeing her if you are losing hope with western medicine and do not want the only answer from your doctor to be, “ try another medicine or double your dose”.
