Natural Solutions to Living Allergy-Free

Natural Solutions to Living Allergy-Free

Have you ever had an embarrassing sneeze attack in the middle of a meeting? Does your skin break out in hives when you visit your friend who has a cat? Do you feel deprived every time you go to a restaurant because you have to avoid certain ingredients? 

Don’t let allergies rule your life. There’s an all-natural way to not only treat your allergies but eliminate them in many cases. 

Dr. Lana Moshkovich at Nirvana Naturopathics in Deerfield, Illinois, offers a drug-free, noninvasive way to get rid of your allergies and allow you to live life without worrying about adverse reactions to your food or environment. 

As a doctor of naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, and Chinese medicine, Dr. Moshkovich has extensive experience in various fields and integrates that knowledge into her diagnostic and treatment approaches.

When it comes to allergies, she has found that the best way to help you overcome them is to retrain your body so it can relearn how to respond to the triggers. 

How allergies work

An allergy is a physical reaction to a substance that your body has deemed dangerous. When the substance truly is dangerous, such as a virus or bacterium, this reaction is welcome. 

But if your body goes on high alert when it’s exposed to harmless substances — an allergic reaction — it’s an annoyance at best and a potentially fatal problem at worst

Allergies affect more than 50 million Americans. Allergies can be mild, causing itchiness, sneezing, or a runny nose, or they can be severe, causing life-threatening respiratory problems.

Some allergies pass from parent to child genetically, but others are acquired during childhood or later in life. Sometimes, trauma triggers allergies. Here’s how it works.

When you experience a traumatic event or illness, your immune system mounts an attack to fight foreign invaders and generates antibodies that remember that invader in case it ever returns. 

In some instances, your cells remember more than a single invader. They remember everything you were touching, eating, or breathing at the time of the trauma. 

For example, if you fell off your bike when you were a child, and your mother gave you ice cream to make you feel better, your immune system may mistakenly connect the trauma with the ice cream, triggering an allergic reaction to dairy.

From that point on, you can either avoid the allergen and/or take drugs to counter the allergic reaction, or choose an all-natural way to reprogram your body’s reaction. 

NAET®: The natural way to eliminate allergies

Rather than relying on medication to address your symptoms, Dr. Moshkovich applies an integrative approach that draws from several fields, including acupuncture, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional therapy, and kinesiology. 

Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET) effectively reboots your system and resets the coding in your cells, brain, and body so they no longer react adversely when exposed to an allergen. 

Through targeted acupuncture and acupressure, Dr. Moshkovich can rebalance your chi, the flow of energy identified in ancient Chinese medicine. Unblocking the stopping points in your chi, frees your body to function normally again and has the potential to eliminate your allergic reactions. 

The NAET treatment begins with an analysis that determines exactly which allergens are disturbing your chi, including:

NAET can even identify emotional and physical stressors that trigger your allergies. 

Once Dr. Moshkovich narrows down your allergens, she can begin your NAET treatment to recode and rebalance your energy flow. She uses manual manipulation to apply pressure in the target areas and release blood flow and nerve responses. 

After your treatment, follow Dr. Moshkovich’s instructions. You need to avoid your allergen for at least 24 hours, and eat well, exercise, and get plenty of rest. 

If you want to learn more about NAET and how it has helped so many allergy sufferers, schedule a consultation with Dr. Moshkovich by calling our office or booking your appointment online.
