Here’s an interesting story for you. This happened a number of years ago, after I had gotten very proficient at curing patients’ allergies, especially to environmental allergens such as dust, pollen and mold, but also including animal dander. A woman in her 30’s came in to my clinic complaining of serious allergy symptoms related to cats. What made her so driven to cure this allergy was the fact that her boyfriend owned two cats and he was very attached to them.
I was expecting to put her on a specific cleanse as I did with most of my allergy patients because dietary cleansing is a key component of re-balancing the immune system and altering the allergic response. But because I treat holistically and always try to discover any and all contributing factors to a patients’ condition, and knowing that ‘anything can cause anything’, I tested for emotional related factors.
Sure enough, I uncovered the fact that her allergies were somehow tied in to the emotion of grief. When I questioned her she affirmed that she had recently lost a friend and was in fact experiencing grief. The emotional clearing technique I utilize, NeuroEmotional Technnique, traces emotional states back to their inception, which for her happened to be an event that occured when she was 8 years old. Again I questioned her about an experience of grief she may have had around age 8. After thinking for a moment, her eyes got big, her mouth opened, and with a surprised look she said, “That was how old I was when I watched my kitty get run over by a truck…she was my best friend.” We did the clearing technique for that trauma and, long story made short, her allergies vanished. No cleanse, no herbal or other supplements, no change in diet, no acupuncture, and no chiropractic adjustment.
I always remember that symptoms can be misleading, and because of that, I seek to find and treat the hidden causes!
