It’s Allergy season again.

What’s that you say? “I thought that was in the spring”.

Actually Fall is the season of the Lung and this is the perfect time to be addressing your allergies.

Get your immune system up to par so next spring isn’t such a disaster. Imagine being outside and taking a deep breathe enjoying the flowers, trees.

Sounds good right?

Now imagine someone who has such an extreme allergy that it can send them into anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. It can occur within seconds or minutes of exposure to something you’re allergic to, such as a peanut or the venom from a bee sting.

The flood of chemicals released by your immune system during anaphylaxis can cause you to go into shock; your blood pressure drops suddenly and your airways narrow, blocking normal breathing. Signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis include a rapid, weak pulse, a skin rash, and nausea and vomiting. Common triggers of anaphylaxis include certain foods, some medications, insect venom and latex.

This means using an Epi-pen and going to the emergency room. More and more we hear of kids reacting to peanuts or peanut butter when someone brings them to school and they share their treats. This is a terrifying experience for everyone involve. If the reaction itself isn’t scary enough, the hospital experience can give them nightmares.

Now imagine a process that will reduce or eliminate these extreme reactions. Wow. Kids can just be kids. Adults can eat at any restaurant and not worry about peanut sauce or other substances that can be life threatening.

That process is here and it’s called NAET – Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Techinique. I recently spent 3 days in California at our annual symposium talking about and reviewing the research and experiences NAET practitioners have had addressing anaphylaxis in patients. It is a life changer. Even just being able to feel safer in the presence of these challenging substances and not having to use an Epi-pen or go to the ER is incredible.

This technique can be used on anyone, any age. It does not require needles so you can release that fear. Want to know more? Please call Oregon City Acupuncture and speak with Carol.
