What is an intolerance / allergic reaction?
An intolerance refers to a non-immune system response ranging from a minor irritation to an extreme reaction. The substance in which our body reacts to, which is generally non-threatening, is viewed by our body as a threat to our general well being. There are a host of substances that you may react with.
A Medical Allergist’s definition of allergy: “a reaction to an otherwise harmless substance, food or environmental, that results in an immune system response”. This reaction consists of the release of histamine, leading to an inflammatory reaction.
I define an allergy as any abnormal bodily reaction to a given substance.
How does the method work?
Based on an ancient Chinese belief that energy runs through the body in pathways called “meridians” acupuncture is now a widely recognized health related modality. It is through these bio-energetic meridians that the brain and nervous system receive information about the state and functioning of the body as a whole. Modern electro magnetic imaging devices and radioactive tracer isotopes have confirmed the presence of these pathways.
Laser acupuncture is used transmit a low electronic frequency directly onto various acupuncture points (without the use of needles) on the body to stimulate and clear any blockages in energy. While the blockages are clearing, the body’s cells are literally being reprogrammed to recognize the allergen’s frequency. When this non-invasive and painless procedure is complete, the body will no longer see the allergen or intolerance as a threat when exposed to it; therefore, no longer producing any adverse reactions.
Are there any side effects from the procedure?
When the body has been freed of an intolerance or allergy to which it has been exposed to in the past, any damaged tissues will begin to break down and reabsorb back into the body. The odd headache, sore throat, sinus congestion, tired or lethargic feeling, aches and pains or even nausea are all usually signs of the body regenerating new cells and cleansing itself. This is known as a “healing crisis”. A healing crisis can start the day after the session up to 3 weeks in some cases, and may last from 1 to 28 days. In fact, they may appear to be getting sick. This is actually a good sign, not a bad one. The body is merely re-experiencing the same symptoms, temporarily, as it now returns on the uphill road, throwing off and eliminating toxic wastes.
How soon will I notice results?
It is much easier to regulate ingested sensitivities, rather than that of environmental sensitivities due to the fact that there are literally thousands of potential environmental allergens that one can inhale or absorb through the skin. However, there are potentially hundreds of chemical food additives we can ingest as well. Most people find immediate results after the first visit, while others require several visits to detect and remove all suspect causes, particularly if an individual has many intolerances. In extreme cases, those with severe intolerances have reported a 4 to 6 week period lapse after their session before feeling complete relief of their symptoms. In some cases, due to toxic overload, we recommend a gentle cleanse to help support our clients during this process.
How long will I be free of any intolerance reaction?
It seldom requires more than one session to rebalance an individual for a set of substances. Approximately 80% of intolerances can be rebalanced during the first session. However, depending on the degree of intolerance, and stress level of the client, amount of bodily toxins and the strength of the person’s immune system, some may require subsequent sessions or a ‘tune-up’ from time to time.
I help to rebalance a person to life threatening (anaphylactic) allergy symptoms as well; however, I require you to seek approval from your medical doctor/allergist before you ingest, inhale or expose yourself to any substance to which you have been previously diagnosed as anaphylactic. It is a common occurrence to show a more severe reaction from your scratch, intradermal or RAST test from your doctor after your session. This may be due to one of two reasons:
- The substance bypasses the first line of defense when it is administered directly into the skin or bloodstream using a scratch test or intradermal test. The pre-programmed IgE antibodies immediately react strongly to the invading allergen. It usually takes time for your body to reprogram your immune system to recognize the substance before complete recovery can be achieved. There may be anywhere from a 3 to 24 month delay before your medical doctor’s test shows a negative response to the anaphylactic substance.
- RAST, intradermal or scratch tests can often be inaccurate. These tests often show a false “negative” or false “positive” test result. This is not due to err from your doctor, but merely from the test itself.
I suggest you have your medical doctor’s allergy test at least 8 months after your sessions. (A minimum of 5 separate sessions per substance are required in cases of anaphylaxis). The goal with anaphylaxis is to reduce the severity of a reaction.
