An energetic understanding of Allergy
Energetic medicine sees allergy as being symptomatic of series of disturbances, it may be the most
obvious symptom (particularly to sufferers) but, for an allergy to develop, the following four processes must
be contributing
1. The immune system has recognised benign substances as a threat and is attacking them
2. Toxins are accumulating in the body and overwhelming its natural detoxification capacities
3. Individuals have deficiencies of vital nutrients
4. Their system is overwhelmed by infective agents or other environmental assaults.
Immune system sensitisation
The core element that is failing when individuals develop allergic reactions to benign substances is overactivation of their immune system. Orthodox medicine explains this response in terms of human digestion,
whereby food is broken down into nutrients that can be absorbed and used by the body. Medicine accepts
that, when digestion is impaired or when the walls of the gut are damaged and become permeable, proteins
and peptides are released from the gut to the blood stream in a partially digested form. These molecules
can be large enough for the immune system to class them as foreign agents and potential threat (or
‘antigen’). Having detected their presence, lymphocytes (white blood cells) produce special proteins known
as antibodies to destroy them.
This process is, of course, vital to protect the body from harmful foreign substances and to prevent the
proliferation of damaged or cancerous cells. However when the immune system becomes sensitised to and
begins attacking benign substances, individuals become symptomatic when exposed to these. An
inflammation response will occur via the production of histamine at the site. Its role is to dilate the blood
vessels so that more lymphocytes can congregate there, and to speed up the metabolism of the cells.
However, too much histamine results in excessive inflammation that is symptomatic of allergy
Impaired detoxification
Alongside the core problem of immune system sensitisation, the other main contributor to allergies is
impaired detoxification capacity. These can be compromised
1. Genetically
2. As a result of early or excessive exposure to exogenous toxins
3. When a leaky gut allows partially digested food into the bloodstream. (see above)
Allergic reactions are a sure sign that individuals’ total body load exceeds their current tolerance level. As
they become progressively overloaded, individuals’ tolerance continues to decline, while their load of toxins
continues to increase, until the immune system is exhausted. This process can take many years, during
which time suffers are caught up in a progressive downward spiral of escalating and chronic ill health
Nutrient deficiency
The third contributor to allergies is a deficiency of nutrients, arising either from inadequate intake or from
compromised ability to metabolise nutrients. Particular allergens (such as milk) cause direct damage to the
villi in the intestinal wall with results that the body absorbs fewer vitamins and minerals, even if their intake
is adequate. Nutrient deficiencies create imbalances in metabolism which give rise to unbalanced
behaviour by the cell. Meanwhile certain deficiencies make individuals’ immune system more likely to react
inappropriate to foods. Deficiencies can also lead to the accumulation of toxins such as heavy metals.
Heavy exposure to infective agents or to environmental hazards such as metals or chemicals will add to the
load on the body. When the body’s coping capacity is exceeded, toxins will accumulate, allergies will
emerge and immune system and metabolic exhaustion can ensue
How can we help?
BICOM 2000
Allergy testing identifies substances (allergens and intolerances) that are negatively affecting your total
body load – which is the total load of environmental stressors in your body. With move environmental
stressors on your body, your total body load increases and you become unhealthy.
Every substance has a “signature” frequency pattern, ie. a unique frequency pattern that is specific to that
particular substance. Testing with the BICOM machine uses these signature frequency patterns to
determine which substances are placing a “strain” on your body.
Allergens are tested by using an electro-puncture stylus which is non-invasive and pain free. Our allergy
treatments using Bio-resonance Therapy (BRT) reduce your total body load, stabilizing your energetic
system and assisting in your body’s own detoxification process.
The naturopathic approach to allergies is to identify why the individual has the allergy, and then treat the
root cause of the problem.
If you are suffering from allergies that were present since birth or came back all of a sudden, or suspect
that you may be suffering from allergies to the environment or certain foods, we can help you identify what
caused the allergy to come about in the first place and help you treat the cause, we can also help you to
decrease allergenic reactions to the environment and foods using natural supplements, along with other
naturopathic modalities.
Alternative therapies help to reduce inflammation, minimize hypersensitivity reactions, modulate the
immune system and heal the digestive tract.
An elimination / challenge trial may help uncover sensitivities. Remove suspected foods from the diet for
two weeks. Reintroduce one at a time and watch for reactions. Do not perform a challenge with peanuts if
there is history of anaphylactic shock.
A rotation diet, in which the same food is not eaten more than once every four days, may be helpful in
minimizing allergic reactions.
Reduce pro-inflammatory foods in the diet including saturated fats (meats, especially poultry, and dairy),
refined foods, and sugar. If you are sensitive to antibiotics, eat only organic meats. Increase intake of
vegetables, whole grains, and essential fatty acids (cold-water fish, nuts [unless allergic to them], and
Omega 3 and certain Omega 6 essential fatty acids, such as flaxseed, borage, or evening primrose oil can
be anti-inflammatory. Children should be supplemented with cod liver oil (1/2 to 1 tsp. per day).
Colon Cleans
The colon (large intestine/bowel) is approximately 5-6 ft in length and 1 inch in diameter. The bowel has a
two-way wall and completes the digestive process, absorbing nutrients and water from the digested foods
and receiving dead cells, tissues and waste toxins from around the body. It acts as the body's sewage
Our bodies are bombarded from every direction with substances we were not designed to process or
eliminate such as air pollution, chemicals founds in our food, and industrial, beauty and household
products. When married with our Western lifestyle- stress, alcohol, cigarettes, infrequent exercise and
improper diet, the body is overloaded and cannot eliminate the toxins properly.
If the toxins are not eliminated the result is auto-intoxication, which is the putrefaction within the intestinal
tract. The waste materials intended for a healthy exit become reabsorbed into the bloodstream and
redistributed around the body.
As years pass a person's body, who continues to eat poorly and live under emotional stress, will gradually
become overwhelmed by the built-up toxicity. This is when diseases such as allergies, arthritis, migraines,
skin disorders, heart disease, gout, metabolic/hormone imbalances, Crohn's Disease, constipation,
parasites, Candida and others can manifest themselves.
Food Allergy self-test
If you suspect that you are allergic to certain food, a simple test can help you determine
if you are correct by recording your pulse rate after consuming the food in question, you
can reveal if you are having an allergic reaction.
Using a watch with a second hand, sit down and relax for a few minutes
When completely relaxed, take your pulse at the wrist. Count the number of bets in a
sixty-second period. Normal pulse reading, by age, are as follows;
o Newborn infants: 100 to 160 beats per minute
o Children 1 – 10: 70 – 120 beats per minute
o Children over 10: 60 – 10 beats per minute
o Adults: 60 – 100 beats per minute
o Well-trained athletes: 40 – 60 beats per minute
After taking your pulse, consume the food that you are testing for an allergic reaction.
Wait to twenty minutes and take your pulse again.
If your pulse rate has increased more than ten beats per minute, omit this food from
your diet for one month and then test yourself again.
Herbs Allergy
Boswellia Serrata –Works at the cellular level to reduce inflammation and
allergic response
Eye bright tea – Has been noted to reduce hay fever symptoms such as
watery eyes and runny nose in children.
Golden Seal – Aids the absorption of nutrients and fight infections.
Nettle – reduces inflammation in the sinus cavities. It is also a powerful
antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage and aids in preventing
allergic attacks.
Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea): Also known as purple coneflower, this
Native American herb is one of the best immune enhancing supplements
you can take. Echinacea has been the subject of more than 50 years’ worth
of study and has clearly demonstrated an ability to increase the production
of a number of T-cells and their distribution in the blood
Garlic (Allium sativum): The antiviral properties of garlic have been well
examined for many years. In Russia, the herb is known as "Russian
penicillin" where it was once used to treat respiratory disorders in hospitals.
Recent Japanese studies have found that aged garlic extract stimulates NK
activity and a potent antimicrobial action against bacteria and yeast
