It’s that time of year again, when allergies are on the minds of chronic sufferers everywhere. Coping with these symptoms can often be a battle experimenting back and forth with over the counter anti-histamines, often times not finding much relief at all. Using a desensitizing method like B.I.E (Bioenergetic Intolerance Elimination) can help reduce your symptoms drastically with out the use of drugs. Using a unique scientific technology blended with the principles of Chinese Medicine, BIE is a proven method for desensitizing foods and other substances as well as harmonizing hormones and nutrients deficiencies in the body.
When Marjorie came to see me she was complaining about gas and bloating and constipation. She told me that she was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome by her doctor and was very frustrated because felt that she tried everything to find out what the cause was but she kept hitting a brick wall. I explained to Marjorie that there are a few things we could do together nutritionally to help her improve her digestion and elimination, but I also suggested that we take a look at any possible food intolerances. I explained to Marjorie that food intolerances may be contributing to her symptoms and suggested that we test them.
When the body is intolerant to a substance it will try to eliminate it in through one of four channels; the skin, lungs, kidneys or bowels. Most people confine allergies to typical symptoms such as runny nose, itching and sneezing. However what is less commonly known is that intolerances can also be the underlying cause of many disorders. Among other symptoms these intolerances can cause; one common symptom is inflammation. This can manifest itself as chronic joint pain and even arthritis like symptoms. In addition other conditions such as eczema have been linked to food intolerances such as dairy. Other symptoms like fatigue, irritability, digestive problems and headaches can also be linked to allergies or intolerances.
To determine whether your symptoms are being caused by intolerances to foods or other substances in your environment you should consider being testing. There are many testing methods used to detect allergies or intolerances. Some common ones are the scratch test (administered by your doctors office), Vega testing or Electro Dermal screening (look for a qualified practitioner that has experience testing), and lastly Applied Kinesiology, more commonly called Muscle testing. The latter is a popular method used by many practitioners including some Naturopathic Doctors and involves isolating a muscle to determine whether there is a resonance or a dissonance to a particular item. If there is a break in the flow of energy in the body, the indicator muscle will weaken and therefore reveal a possible intolerance to that item by the body.
After testing was complete for Marjorie, we began to work on desensitizing Marjorie from these items using B.I.E as well as supporting her digestion and elimination with some dietary and supplement suggestions.
