Heal Allergies by focusing on this

May 19, 2022

I used to have allergies. I would wake congested and drippy. I would sneeze. I would take allergy medication.

Now, 20 years later, I love leaving the windows opened…even when I can easily see pollen floating through the air.

So how did I manage this complete shift?

To understand the solution, let’s take a quick moment to understand allergies. They are your immune system responding to something that is harmless. Food, pollen, dust, dander, grass, to name a few.

How does the immune system get confused and start reacting to triggers that aren’t truly dangerous?

In my practice, I find three primary pillars of allergy: immune confusion, nervous system stress, liver/large intestine disruption.

Immune confusion: Did you know the heart energy plays a central role in the immune system? The thymus gland is the reason for this, a place where T cells are trained to perform their protective functions. When we work with disruptions in the heart energy, we can help boost the immune system. Anxiety, stress, fear, suppressed emotion, and physical stressors are just some ways we boost the heart with energy medicine.

Nervous system stress: The fight-or-flight response shifts our immune system from a peacekeeper mode to a warrior mode. “I’m in danger” is hormonally broadcast through the body, shunting the vagus nerve and sending energy so we can outrun that tiger. Focus is taken away from the digestive system, the immune system is stimulated, muscles tighten and energy is focused on the muscles and heart. This is fine if it only happens occasionally. But often our bodies go through cortisol surges throughout the day, depleting and disturbing the balance of the body. In time, it can be very difficult to get into ‘rest and digest’ to restore. This is where chronic health problems such as diabetes, digestive imbalances, anxiety, insomnia, burnout, and chronic pain really get fueled. Energy medicine can undo these stresses, freeing the nervous system to get back into balance.

Liver/large intestine disruption: The liver and large intestine play a huge role in the immune system. In fact, 70% of your immune system is in your gut! That means gut health plays a huge role in your immune health. The liver produces and stores allergy-specific antibodies called immunoglobulins. These can set off a reaction, including the triggering of too much inflammation or histamine, causing allergic reactions. There are key ways to repair these processes with energy medicine, including addressing food sensitivities, and they work well!

If your eyes are swollen or your nose is runny or your skin itchy, there are ways to repair and heal these symptoms at the root cause. The beauty of addressing the cause, not just treating the symptoms, is you can be free of allergies once and for all. 

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could make allergies a thing of your past? You can!
