NAET is the method that can help eliminate your allergies and their symptoms permanently …


Help your body balance naturally

Using your own body to heal itself

No Drugs/Steroids or Needles

It can be used on a one-day-old infant and to anyone of advanced age.
NAET is a safe and effective technique in detecting and eliminating or desensitizing all types of allergies. NAET combines Chiropractic and Oriental Medicine to clear allergic reactions through a reprogramming of the brain.

Our brains have a natural built-in subconscious function controlling the immune system, which has the potential of keeping us allergy free. What has been developed is a technique that consciously focuses the brain on a single allergen while clearing the blocked energy formerly associated with that allergen. This technique can successfully desensitize the body in order to achieve an allergy-free state.

NAET can Successfully Eliminate Adverse Reactions to egg, milk, peanuts, penicillin, aspirin, mushrooms, shellfish, latex, grass, ragweed, flowers, perfume, animal dander, animal epithelial, make-up, chemicals, cigarette smoke, pathogens, heat, cold and other environmental agents.

What are “allergies”?

Medical scientists are still researching to find the exact cause and nature of allergies, but may not have all the answers for years to come. From a Western medical point of view, an allergy is an over-reaction of the immune system.

A simple definition of an allergy is as follows:

An allergy is an adverse physical, physiological and/or psychological response of an individual towards one or more substances also known as allergens. However, these substances may be harmless, well tolerated or even useful for most people.

Dr. Nambudripad’s approach is the same for full-blown allergies involving the release of immunoglobulin type E (IgE-mediated reactions) in the body, and for intolerances, sensitivities, and hypersensitivities (non-IgE mediated reactions). Her technique diagnoses and treats them all in the same way.

Therefore, for our purposes, an allergy is defined in terms of what a substance does to the energy flow in the body.

When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called meridians, disrupting the normal flow of energy through the body’s electrical circuits. This energy blockage causes an interference in communication between the brain and body via the nervous system. This blocked energy flow is the first step in a chain of events which can develop into an allergic response. Allergies are the result of energy imbalances in the body, leading to a diminished state of health in one or more of its organs or its systems.

There is an increasing number of practitioners both in orthodox and complementary medicine, who believe allergies may be a missing link in many health problems.

While modern life has helped make so many aspects of daily living easier, many people still suffer from emotional distress. Subsequently, Anxiety and Depression are two of the most common mental-emotional conditions affecting individuals today. The good news is that Acupuncture can provide a natural form of relief from these feelings, helping you return to a happier life.

Acupuncture for Anxiety

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine have always considered the connection between mind and body to be inseparable. Along with the ancient descriptions of external environmental disease factors, such as wind, Heat, and Cold, internal causes of disease were considered to be due to emotions. Anger, fear, sadness, worry, and joy were correlated to each of the five Yin organs of the body. Imbalances within these organs could be the origin of the emotion, or the emotion could injure the corresponding internal organ over time.

The Western viewpoint of “more is better” has taken a toll on mental health. While some chose to work hard and play hard until exhaustion, others will suffer from over-thinking, worrying about every detail of life. There never seems to be time to just relax and unwind, without turning on the TV or seeking some social event. This lifestyle causes the mind and body to become tied-up inside, creating anxiety and depression. Acupuncture can help treat these mental-emotional disorders by helping you to “undo”. The needles create a deep state of relaxation during the treatment, allowing true rest and healing of both mind and body.

Fortunately, anxiety comes in a variety of forms, from mild worrying about an upcoming speech or exam to phobias, to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), from a nervous stomach, to even panic attacks. Some anxiety is a normal healthy response to the stresses of daily life and new situations. However, anxiety that occurs randomly or in an excessive manner is a sign of concern., acupuncture can help balance both the mental and physical manifestations of this condition returning you to an easy-going life.

When anxiety occurs, you may experience the obsessive thoughts circling the fearful situation you are experiencing, and physical symptoms such as chest pain, increased heart rate, shortness of breath, stomachache, nausea, or headache. Depending on the exact manifestations of your anxiety in conjunction with an observation of the pulse and tongue, an acupuncturist can determine which Oriental Medicine (sometimes called Traditional Chinese Medicine) pattern of anxiety you are experiencing.

Most conditions of anxiety are related to imbalances of the Heart and Kidney, referring the energetic aspects of these organs. The Heart organ is considered a very Yang energy organ, constantly pumping the blood throughout the body. Over-excitement of the Heart due to excessive joy or an imbalance of Fire within the body can create Heat in the Heart, leading to anxiety and insomnia. The Kidney is the Water organ and functions to balance the Fire of the Heart helping to contain an excess of Fire. If the Kidney is deficient, the Heart Fire can rise up disturbing the mind.

Acupuncture treatments for anxiety can use both body and auricular (ear) acupuncture. Body acupuncture points may include Heart 7, Kidney 6, and Spleen 6 to harmonize the Heart and Kidney and nourish the cooling Yin energy of these organs. In cases of excessive Heart Heat, the points Heart 8 and Heart 9 may be used to sedate the Fire within the Heart. Auricular points, such as Shenmen (Spirit Gate), can effectively reduce anxiety; in some cases, retaining ear tacks or small magnetic balls at this auricular acupuncture point can prolong the effects of treatments.

One key to chiropractic care is the spinal adjustment. This is the way doctors of chiropractic correct subluxations or misalignment’s in the spine.

A chiropractic adjustment can benefit people of all ages and all sizes. Whether you’re on your feet all day, sitting in front of a computer all day, or anything in between, an adjustment can set you straight! Our chiropractors graduated from one of the most elite chiropractic schools in the nation, Parker College of Chiropractic. We work on everything from headaches to “toe-aches"!

The Goal of the Adjustment

The goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to correct the spinal subluxations detected during the examination. To do that, the doctor applies pressure to the bone and “unlocks” it from its improper position. The bone will then be free to align itself correctly.

Many people think that the chiropractor forces a vertebra back into its “proper” place. But only the individual’s own Innate Intelligence knows for sure what the proper place for each bone is. The role of the chiropractor is to free up the vertebrae. Then, the body can do its job and put them back in the correct position.

Unfortunately, the muscles connected to subluxated vertebrae get used to their positions and have a tendency to pull the bone back out of place. It may take several adjustments before the adjustment “holds,” and the bone settles into its proper alignment and movement.

Adjusting Techniques

If you ask 100 patients to describe their adjustments, you may get 100 different answers! That’s because there are many adjusting techniques for the chiropractor to choose from.

Some doctors have their patients sit up for certain adjustments. Others tell them to lie down. Some use elaborate tables with moveable head or footrests while others use stationary tables. A chiropractor may use a certain technique on one visit and a totally different one the next.

Chiropractic colleges teach their students many adjusting techniques. They realize each doctor and patient is different. In fact, each subluxation is different and may require a separate approach. Even the size, weight, and muscle structure of the doctor and patient must be taken into consideration when choosing a technique.

Chiropractors select the technique which will most effectively correct subluxations with a minimum of force. The “art” of adjusting requires skill and training rather than brute strength. That’s why even slightly built doctors can perform excellent adjustments on all patients regardless of their size.

Will it Hurt?

Because most adjusting techniques emphasize using minimal force and gentle pressure, few patients feel any discomfort during the adjustment. Many, however, will hear popping sounds. But there’s no need for concern. There’s nothing breaking. The noises you hear are just tiny pockets of gas releasing with a pop, which is completely normal.

With or without noises, your adjustment should be completely pain-free. Some patients, particularly if they are tense, involuntarily stiffen and resist the adjustment. At these times, they may feel slight discomfort until they learn to relax.

Once you get used to the noises — if there are any — you may associate them with “good” adjustments. However, be aware that in time, these noises may lessen or disappear completely. When this happens, it doesn’t mean the adjustment has stopped “working.” It only means that normal flexibility is returning to the affected vertebrae.

Alternative Help for Anxiety

First of all, if you believe that your mind and your body are one, then this will make sense to you. However, if you believe that anxiety is purely psychological, and has no connection with the physical body, then you will probably think that we are full of it!

As you know, chiropractors work primarily with the back, the spine, and the neck. The nervous system has its superhighway, the spinal cord, running down the spine and any interruption in its flow could affect mood. The link between anxiety and posture has often been made.

Let’s go back to common symptoms of anxiety: Feeling out of it, or strange, light-headed, slightly dizzy, difficulty swallowing, tight chest and breathing. Could some or even all of these be down to a misaligned spine putting pressure on the nerves and blood vessels in your neck and back? Yes, potentially they could. In which case, a chiropractor might well be able to help you with anxiety.

If your anxiety is accompanied by or exacerbated by, tension headaches that affect the back of your neck or reach over your crown onto your face then there may well be a link between your anxiety and spinal cord or skeletal structure, in which case it would be well worth your time talking to your chiropractor.

An interesting point: many anxiety medications, such as Xanax and other benzodiazepines also work to relax muscles. Some people claim that part of their anti-anxiety effect is caused by the fact that they lessen pressure on the spinal cord and allow everything to work more easily.

There are no guarantees that chiropractic care will have an effect on your anxiety, but it might be worth a try. If you are interested in this type of treatment, please send us a message.
