    Healing Allergies: Where to Go From Here

    April 9, 2009 by Brandy Vencel

    Welcome, all of you mommies out there searching for help with allergies, especially food allergies. You are not alone. Trust me, I know. I am currently averaging three emails per day from women all over the country whose families are just like yours. This week so far I’ve discussed eczema, allergy-induced asthma, extreme food allergies, and the relation of these things to antibiotics and vaccinations.

    And I find that I’m saying many of the same things over and over.

    I love hearing from all of you, however I am beginning to get low on time. Whereas I used to be able to reply within 24 hours, this window is beginning to stretch, and I’ve decided a post like this might help you faster if you are in a hurry.

    Now, before I go on, please know that I still welcome your emails. You can use the contact form right now, if you like. I love hearing from all of you.

    However, comma.

    I can also anticipate many of your questions and answer them right here. This will save both of us time, and then when you send me an email, we can get down to details that are more specific to your individual family or situation.

    So here’s the deal. If you are a wealthy person, or you just got your tax return and you’re dying to spend all of it pursuing care from our doctor here in California, email me and I’ll tell you how to get in contact with her.

    However, most of us can’t afford to do this. So this is, generally speaking, what I would do if I were in your shoes. If I had a child suffering from allergies of any kind {hay fever, asthma, food problems, even neurological problems} I would:

    1. Get my child off or away from as many allergens as humanly possible. This might sound basic to some of you, but I’ve noticed a pattern here. There is this concept that someone can have a slight allergy. In my new and improved view of allergies, I believe this to be untrue. A person is either allergic or not allergic {though, to get technical, there are also combination allergies, where someone reacts to certain foods eaten at the same time}.

      The person’s reaction might be more or less severe, but that person is still completely and totally allergic to said food.

      I now believe that allergies can be described in terms of compatibility. What I mean is, a person is either compatible or not compatible with something. If a body is not compatible with a food, that food weakens the body, even if the food is a generally nutritious food.

      Once I realized that noncompatible foods weaken a body, I realized that every little slip, every exception, actually tore down my child’s body. And, if, as I describe below, good health and strength will cause some allergies to disappear and others to be more easily eliminated, then it is important to keep a child away from food with which he is not compatible.

      {Please note that I’m talking about allergies. Food intolerances are something I would distinguish as not weakening, but rather indicative of poor digestion. This is something I’ve given my children digestive enzymes for without avoiding those foods.}

    2. Find and use a Neurolink practitioner. Here is a way to search online for someone in your geographic region.

      Depending on your area, you might find a regular MD or DO, a chiropractor, physical therapist, or even a massage therapist who does this. I would say that this was essential to the healing of my children. The most important distinction I could make is to say that I now believe that allergies are themselves a SYMPTOM. This is why Neurolink is important. Neurolink is the best thing I’ve found for laying a foundation for overall health.

    3. Find an NAET practitioner. If you find one practitioner who does both of these things, you have hit the jackpot! But most folks I’ve talked to have to first pursue Neurolink and then later NAET. NAET is a type of allergy elimination. I personally would do Neurolink first because, once my son had undergone Neurolink {which is noninvasive, by the way, in case you were wondering}, the majority of his allergies just disappeared. So Neurolink is an important first step, and might save you money on allergy elimination. Here is a way to search for NAET practitioners.

    Did you expect a long list? I almost added in supplementation, but I’m not an expert. We can chat over email if you want to know what my children are taking to build their health.

    By the way, I would love for you all to email me and let me know what happened. I love to hear reports back, and I plan to occasionally publish positive experiences right here on the blog.

    Our oldest son was basically done by September of 2008. He had one setback in October 2008 (with a bowl of oatmeal), so depending on how you look at it, it would be seven or eight months.

    Our daughter was sometime in October 2008. We wanted to be sure it worked with our son before doing anything with her, especially since it was expensive.

    How long have your children been healed from their allergies?

    I hope that I was some comfort to you. I checked out the photos of your son…it is so horrifying as a mommy, isn’t it? Neurolink assists with fungus, I think, so you might want to check it out. I hope your son finds healing soon!

    I just wanted to say thank you for including your testimony in the previous posts. I found your links off Nourishing Gourmet when she posted on the allergies with her daughter. I have a 2 yod who is suffering with some pretty severe eczema right now. I posted pictures on my blog of his legs the day after I had given him kefir. The problems is that he’s also been diagnosed with intestinal ringworm/fungus (although there was no Candida.) What ever is feeding the fungus is causing the eczema. I started seeing a chiropractor just last week who works in rebuilding the inside. I am not sure what he uses. Right now we’re just on supplements. My point in writing is to thank you. I felt so stuck in a rut. Almost fearful. I was at the end of myself and didn’t know what to do. Your testimony not only showed me that I was not alone with the food allergies but it also gave the courage to finally call someone (I had grown afraid of drs simply because with my own health I have been run in circles.) It’s hard to trust your babies in their hands. Thank you.

    I’m sorry for the inconvenience, but it looks like the problem is that the entire Neurolink website it down tonight. I’ve never encountered this problem before, so my hunch is that it’ll be back up ASAP.

    The “neurolink practioner” link (#2) would not work. Would you repost it please?

    Thank you!
