Conventional estimates suggest that 35 million people in the U.S. suffer from allergies of different kinds. Allergies and sensitivities cause interference to health by triggering an immune system reaction that is abnormal and depletes the body. There are basically three types of allergies:

1). To a substance in the environment such as dust, mold, pollen, animal hair, ash, exhaust fumes, perfumes…etc

2). To foods or food additives such as wheat, corn, soy, cow’s milk, artificial preservatives like sodium benzoate and artificial colors.

3). Metabolic by-products such as bodily fluids and tissues: like mucous, sweat…

Allergic reactions can mimic a wide range of diseases and disorders and lead to confused immune system responses. Confused immune system responses kill off friendly and protective bacteria in our gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This lack of good, protective bacteria encourages infective organisms to proliferate. Infective organisms are linked to Leaky Gut syndrome, or excessive permeability of the GI tract. The infective organisms cause damage in the walls of the digestive tract, which allows LEAKING OF FOOD PARTICLES INTO THE BLOOD STREAM. Food particles in the digestive tract are normal, but food particles in the blood stream are reacted to as foreign invaders.

So what can be done about allergies and how does one determine if one has such a disorder?

Allergy / Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique (A/SERT)

What is A/SERT? A/SERT (Allergy / Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique) is a revolutionary treatment system based on the principles of Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and Applied Kinesiology (Muscle Response Testing). This technique was developed by Dr. John Brimhall, and is a modification of NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique) developed by Dr. Devi Nambudripad.

This treatment, in conjunction with the Six Step to Wellness Protocol, can bring about dramatic improvement -even total elimination- for all types of allergies. It is simple, non-invasive and extremely effective. It is currently practiced by hundreds of health practitioners, including MD’s, nurses, acupuncturists, chiropractors, and dentists.

How does A/SERT work?

A/SERT is based on the recognition that all things, animate and inanimate, in our universe have their own specific electromagnetic fields due to their atomic and molecular makeup, and that these fields affect each other. This is true for our bodies, rocks, pollen, mold, peanut butter, a flower, water, in short, everything. This electromagnetic energy is associated with meridians (energy pathways) in acupuncture, chi in Chinese Medicine, and can be demonstrated with Kirlian photography. Nuclear physicists can determine the type of atom by its electromagnetic frequency.

According to Dr. Devi Nambudripad M.D., this is what happens: Your energy system and brain interpret a particular substance (dust, pollen, a whole wheat bagel, a peanut, hot water, sun light) as potentially harmful to your body, and your body reacts. For other people this same item is totally harmless. Your energy pathways freeze up as a way of defending the body against this unsuitable substance. This in turn blocks your energy meridians and, if this condition continues, the overall functioning of your body suffers.

A/SERT Diagnostics – Our fingertips are very sensitive to the electromagnetic energy of substances with which we come into contact. By placing a sample of a suspected allergen into a person’s hand, and using Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, the A/SERT practitioner can determine whether or not a person reacts –weak” or –strong” to the substance, i.e., whether this substance causes an energy blockage in the patient’s body. Such blockages can cause a wide variety of symptoms, from sneezing and coughing to chronic diseases such as asthma.

A/SERT Desensitization – The A/SERT practitioner stimulates key points along the patient’s spine while the patient is holding the allergen. The doctor stimulates certain meridian points, specific organs and lobes of the brain with a Low Level Laser. A chemical change takes place in the autonomic nervous system, neutralizing any allergic reaction to the substance.

A/SERT reprograms the brain and the nervous system, and eliminates your body’s conditioned response to the ‘allergen’. Environmental medicine has been dealing with hidden allergies for several decades. You try to avoid the allergenic substance in your life, you go on a rotation diet, and maybe you can manage. But with A/SERT you can continue to have contact with the very substance that made you sick.

Why not get a check at Carib Wellness to see if your immune system and health is being burden by allergies and sensitivities. Remember, headaches are not because of a lack of Aspirin in the body and similarly allergies and sensitivities are not due to the lack of anti-histamines. Ask your doctor if A/SERT may be good for you.
