Natural Elimination of Allergy Therapy (N.E.A.T.)
Depending on what study you read, 35-50% of Americans suffer from symptoms of allergy and sensitivity. Sensitivity means that the body is reacting in some way to a substance in its environment. This reaction can come from a variety of mechanisms, but they all result in the release of histamine, and other inflammatory chemicals. If they are released in the mucus membranes of the face, there will be hay fever symptoms; if in the lungs, wheezing or cough; if in the skin, a rash, and so on.
In order to control allergy, it is essential that offending substances be identified. We recommend IgE RAST blood tests for inhalant and contact allergens and IgG RAST or MICROELISA tests for foods. These tests measure antibodies and are the best for identifying true allergy. Sensitivity is diagnosed when symptoms are present, but the. patient tests negative for allergies. We recommend electrodermal screening (EDS) for sensitivity testing. Our NEAT outcome study is looking at a correlation between RAST or ELISA and EDS.
Once identification of allergens has been accomplished, treatment consists of avoidance, symptom control and desensitization. Avoidance means minimizing exposure to substances causing allergies. Air purifiers and filters as well as water filters, pillow and mattress covers are useful. Avoidance also includes replacement of natural barriers to allergy sensitization by ensuring good mucus protection in the lungs, normal skin function and good digestion of protein to prevent food allergies. Dietary prohibition of lectins and rotation diets for allergens may also be used.
Symptom control is accomplished with herbal/nutritional supplements which are natural remedies that do what over the counter and prescription medications do. They treat hay fever, rhinitis, sinusitis, rash, and other allergy/sensitivity symptoms, usually with less cost and less side effects. Patients should only need these until they have been desensitized and rarely after that.
Desensitization is what the conventional allergist accomplishes through "allergy shots", which try to convince your immune system to quit reacting. However, the immune system is "hard of hearing" and takes a long time to convince. The Natural Elimination of Allergy Therapy (NEAT) protocol uses energy balancing (acupressure and homeopathy) to convince your brain to quit reacting, which happens within 24 hours, and the brain directs the immune system. We have just completed an outcome study of 100 patients (soon to be published) which demonstrated very good results in our patient population. Experience in our clinic shows good results after 6-8 weeks of treatment.
