- Me!!! Wheat sensitivity!! And often I feel my body resisting certain foods so I back away from it for a little while.
- None, food or environment.
- Most of the time, no. When I moved to Montana I had seasonal allergies in spring.
- Seasonal and it stinks.
- Horrible allergies, despite allergy shots and lots of pills.
- I have both and [my son] has a food allergy.
- Researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies.
- This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in every 13 children (under 18 years of age) in the U.S. That’s roughly two in every classroom.
- The economic cost of children’s food allergies is nearly $25 billion per year.
- According to a study released in 2013 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, food allergies among children increased approximately 50% between 1997 and 2011.
- Allergic rhinitis, often called hay fever, is a common condition that causes symptoms such as sneezing, stuffy nose, runny nose, watery eyes and itching of the nose, eyes or the roof of the mouth.
- These nasal allergies are estimated to affect approximately 50 million people in the United States, and its prevalence is increasing affecting as many as 30 percent of adults and up to 40 percent of children.
- 16.9 million adults and 6.7 million children have been diagnosed with hay fever in the last year.
- More than 13.4 million visits to physician offices, hospital outpatient departments and emergency departments were due to allergic rhinitis.
- Allergic rhinitis can be seasonal or perennial. Symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis occur in spring, summer and/or early fall. They are usually caused by allergic sensitivity to pollens from trees, grasses or weeds, or to airborne mold spores. People with perennial allergic rhinitis experience symptoms year-round. It is generally caused by sensitivity to house dust mites, animal dander, cockroaches and/or mold spores. Underlying or hidden food allergies rarely cause perennial nasal symptoms.
But I Can I Help...
SRT uses three well-known medical sciences that best work with the energetic systems of the body: kinesiology, homeopathy, and acupressure.
Kinesiology (muscle testing) is used to determine which allergen(s) you are sensitive to. Homeopathy is used to represent the allergens in testing viles, as well as the Traditional Chinese Medical balancing viles. While you're holding the allergen(s), a series of acupressure points along the spine are activated to open channels in the central nervous system. This begins what can be related to as "reprogramming your computer" which teaches your body to look at these allergens in a neutral way, rather than as a threat (allergy). Several additional points are activated on the arms and legs to open up the meridian lines through the body. You will then be given 15 minutes to rest quietly as the final part of the treatment.
Your first appointment is one hour and includes the allergy assessment. Subsequent appointments are 30 minutes and include the actual treatment. In order to best respect your time and finances, viles in each allergen type (ie. food, pollen, environmental, etc) are grouped together and treated at one time. This greatly reduces the number of visits you'll need for treatment (avg. 2 to 4) as compared to methods like NAET with treatments pushing the double and triple digits.
After your treatment, you will be asked to maintain a strict avoidance of the allergen(s) treated as well as food/beverages (except water) for 3 hours so make sure you eat before the treatment appointment.
The process is totally painless and super simple but EXTREMELY powerful and proven effective. After the completion of SRT, you are encouraged to have an annual checkup to keep your acupressure systems clear of allergens and symptoms, and to be sure no new allergens are starting to accumulate in your body.
