Effective treatment for a range of allergies
Whilst homeopathy can be an effective treatment for allergies*, I primarily use NAET together with some homeopathic remedies to help to manage symptoms whilst treatment is progressing.
In 2008 I heard about N.A.E.T. when I was looking for an effective treatment for food allergies and intolerances. I was treating a number of people who were suffering from digestive disorders, and whilst food allergy testing could be useful, avoiding the allergic substance could be inconvenient and sometimes impossible. I also thought that if someone suffered from a specific food allergy there was a strong possibility that their body wasn’t absorbing the necessary vitamins and minerals from their diet.
NAET firstly eliminates any allergy or sensitivity to all the basic minerals and vitamins that the human body requires. Once these basic elements have been treated, specific allergens such as latex, nuts or animal dander can be treated.
The whole process can be fairly intensive, with weekly treatments recommended, but the health benefits can be remarkable. Not only will the specific allergy be eliminated but the patient’s overall level of health improves.
Below you can read the story of one woman’s treatment.
Before I had NAET treatment with Mary Jane I could only eat a very limited amount of foods. After a serious illness I developed a large number of allergies to foods and chemicals. I couldn’t eat gluten, sugar, dairy, potato, tomato, pork, beef and chicken and many other foods. If I did eat these foods, I would feel tired, ache and get a headache. I managed my symptoms by avoiding foods but it meant my diet was very limited and I could no longer go out for lunch or dinner with my friends. As I love eating out, it really affected my quality of life.
I tried the NAET treatment just to see if it might help, but I had lost hope that anything would make much of a difference. I was absolutely thrilled when after the first session I could eat chicken again! Each NAET treatment produced a positive effect and after about 3 months of treatment I can now eat absolutely anything. It is such a thrill to go to a restaurant and be able to order anything from the menu! My social life has improved as I can now go out with friends again and enjoy dinner parties at people’s homes without causing a fuss.
One unexpected benefit is that I also started to feel better energy-wise. I didn’t go for the NAET treatment for this but as we worked through the ‘basics’ I noticed I felt significantly better. I also stopped reacting to chemicals and dust mites, which made my life a whole lot easier. I can now stay at other people’s houses without lugging dust mite proof bedding around with me!
Mary Jane herself was a big part of the treatment. She was so kind and supportive throughout the treatment. She went out of her way to look after me and I felt as though we worked through the process together. She is also a qualified homeopath, and when necessary she supplemented my treatment with remedies – I felt like I was getting two for the price of one!
If you are suffering from food or chemical allergies, or even hay fever or pet allergies I would definitely recommend NAET. In fact I would recommend it to anyone to boost your general health and well-being and to help your body to run as smoothly as possible.”
