Allergy Testing and Treatment in West Lothian and Moray, Scotland.
Allergy Testing and Treatment
A lovely, beautiful young woman came to me with severe chronic eczema. Her entire body was one massive wound. That had lasted for years. She tried many things to no avail. But, things changed for her drastically. With just a few conversations, some changes in diet, emotional outlook, and treatment (moving to all-natural approach), her mind and body completely transformed. She is now an even more beautiful, confident and strong young woman. Here is her revelation:
For anyone who knows me personally will know how much this has taken to post pictures like these. But I have never felt so happy/comfortable in my own skin as I do now. I feel AMAZING. If you told me this time last year id be able to wear shorts and short sleeved tops I’d laugh in your face, well at least try to because the pain/discomfort took everything out of me, days I felt like I couldn’t suffer anymore. Days I couldn’t find the strength to take my wee one to the nursery. I was practically bed bound for months.
Picture 1 was yesterday and the other 3 were last year going through – TSW (typical steroid withdrawal) also known as red skin syndrome because the doctors prescribed me steroids for 10+ years my skin became addicted (oral steroids & steroid creams) for what they wanted to call ‘eczema’. ONE YEAR later I’ve visited the doctors only ONCE for antihistamines, (this is amazing for someone who’s been hospitalised to be bandaged up like a mummy) they even offered me more steroid cream, I refused point blank, even though they say it’s best.
It’s a get out of jail card, yeah, but hell there is payback. So happy I’m out that vicious circle, I honestly thought it was gonna kill me, mentally.
Feel like a new me, a new body & new mind!!
What Is an Allergy?
Allergies, or allergic diseases, are conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. These diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis.
How Common Are Allergies?
Allergies are increasingly common and are on the rise. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people.
What Are the Causes and Treatments for Allergic Conditions?
Allergies have been increasing in both number and severity but still, remain largely undiagnosed by modern medicine. There is no medical treatment for allergies beyond the prescription of anti-histamines to alleviate the symptoms. While, in many cases, medications can make us feel better, they pollute our body’s systems with chemicals and toxins, which are very hard to eliminate, especially at the times when our body is trying to cope with the actual causes of the allergic reaction. The overload of toxins and chemicals may lead to the weakening, or even complete shutting down, of the Immune system.
An allergic reaction is simply our body’s way of telling us that something in us is out of balance and some change is needed, whether in our diet, environment, or emotions. By taking anti-histamines, we merely disconnect ourselves from our body’s messaging system; we turn a deaf ear to its voice screaming for help. We choose to ignore until, sometimes, it’s too late, and our health has started falling apart. In this case, the symptoms might have started showing somewhere else: in our lungs, digestive system, bones and joints, often impacting on our mental and emotional state too.
Most people are aware of common allergies such as Hay Fever (allergic rhinitis), asthma and eczema but possibly do not realise that other, sometimes severe, problems can be caused by allergic reactions. For example, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Candidiasis, Chronic Sinusitis, Recurring Cystitis, Muscle/Joint pain, Extreme Tiredness, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are just some examples of the range of problems that can cause crippling discomfort in people’s lives and may be caused, or exacerbated, by chemical or food intolerances.
Can Children Be Tested?
Recently I have started to see more and more people opting for an alternative approach to allergy testing and treatment. And the most rapidly growing group are the parents of affected young children and babies, who choose to avoid their children having to undergo painful and invasive tests and taking chemicals. As a parent, especially when weaning your child off milk, it can be frightening to watch aggressive skin reactions on your child without knowing what is happening.
I use muscle testing, which child- and baby-friendly and doesn’t involve painful scratch, injection or patch testing on your precious little one. Being able to know and then treat or avoid any foods or chemicals that your child is allergic to is very effective and empowering for a parent.
What Approach Do You Use to Test for Allergies?
The approach for allergy testing I use in my practice is based on the technique adopted in Applied Kinesiology, which uses muscle testing as the basis. This technique is a fast, painless and very accurate way of testing your body’s reaction to a large number of known allergens without the invasiveness of needles.
Muscle testing is a practice that is used to tap into the subconscious mind in order to answer questions about physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Our bodies live and function on principles of electromagnetic energy. While our conscious mind is mostly unaware of these energies, our subconscious mind is intimately connected to and affected by them. It is responsive to positive energy and congruency and resistant to negative energy and incongruency. It is this tendency to seek out or reinforce positive energy and to avoid or refuse negative energy that allows us to perform muscle testing. Muscles become weak when the substance or information is harmful or incongruent, and immediately strengthen when encountering a beneficial substance or congruent and true information.
We tap into this relationship between the subconscious mind and energy by asking “true/false” questions and then checking the body’s response. Checking the response can be done a number of ways, but is often done with methods like the Arm Test, where the subject simply holds one arm outstretched in front of them, parallel to the floor, while holding a suspected harmful substance close to their body with the other hand, and the practitioner lightly presses on the stretched out arm.
When a young child or a baby are being tested, a parent holds the baby on their lap with one arm, holding the tested substance near the baby’s navel, while the other arm is stretched out and is tested.
Please note: while I have thousands of samples of various allergens, you can also bring your own samples of foods and personal items you suspect in causing your allergic reaction for the test. These items may include makeup and personal hygiene items, medications, food, water, clothes, pieces of carpet, hair of an animal, etc.
Do You Offer a Treatment for Allergies?
Once your allergy and its causes have been identified, we will treat it with Vibrational Medicine and any other relevant approaches offered in my practice. Our choice will depend on the causes. For instance, if we identify emotional trauma, or a limiting belief, as a part of the underlying cause, we will first work on eliminating those, using psychology and other mind-related methods. Only then will we proceed with Vibrational Medicine treatment.
For instance, many of my clients with eczema, psoriasis and other skin issues resulting in rushes often possessed self-created, albeit subconscious, mental protective mechanisms, expressed as false beliefs similar to this one: “I don’t want to be attractive because all people I love and allow near me will eventually hurt me.” Being unattractive ‘protects’ the person from harmful relationships. This, however, is below the surface of their conscious awareness, creating unbearable conflict in their psyche and body. On the surface, they are ‘starving’ for love and intimacy. Underneath the surface, they are so scared that their bodies have created a barrier between them and the world around in the form of unattractive, itchy, bleeding, disturbing rush.
If you choose to be tested but not treated, then, of course, I will give you exhaustive information about what foods, substances, environments, etc., you should avoid. This is often enough for many people to return to a healthier and happier life. In this case, it is up to you to introduce the changes necessary in your lifestyle. This may include changing jobs, foods, lifestyle, location, etc. This can sometimes be challenging, such as having to give up your favourite foods, but it’s worth every effort, as the result of your perseverance and dedication will be a life that is free of discomfort, embarrassment and pain!
