One of our clients, with a chronic inflammation of their intestines, is now eating foods which would have caused symptoms in past years and is experiencing 70% less digestive symptoms! Another client reported 80 % improvement in their seasonal allergies and they were taking 80% less medication, all after just four sessions.

Allergy elimination helps our clients get in balance with allergens, subsequently minimizing their allergy symptoms significantly. In some cases, allergy elimination eradicates symptoms entirely.

Dr Devi Nambudripad, M.D., D.C., L.Ac., Ph.D. (Acu.) discovered Acupuncture Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET) in the 1980’s while working with her own food allergies.

In her book Say Good-Bye to Illness she says, “An allergy is an energy imbalance between the electromagnetic energy of the person and the substance, causing unpleasant physical, physiological and/or psychological reactions in the person’s body.”

She and other practitioners have since experimented and expanded upon this rapidly growing technique.

Carola Stepper, LAc has been trained by Robin Cupp, LAc in Allergy Elimination, Applied Kinesiology (AK) and modified Tapas Acupressure Techniques (TAT).  He studied with Dr. Devi Nambudripad and with Tapas Fleming, LAc, who developed TAT, and found that using both of those techniques together allergy clearing results of over 95% could be reached!

Which Allergies can be addressed?

There are two main categories of allergens we can address:

  1.      Reaction and symptoms to foods, such as gluten, dairy, wheat, nuts, eggs, sugar, vitamins and more
  2.      Reaction and symptoms to environmental factors, such as pollen, dust, mold, wood smoke, pet hair, poison oak and more

 What is involved in an Allergy Elimination Session?

 This Allergy Elimination protocol involves four steps.

Child being treated with acupunctureFirst we muscle test different vials. They contain water and alcohol and the electromagnetic signature of the allergen, serving as a place holder for the actual substance.

These vials are never opened and our clients only needs to hold them gently.

We have 750 different vials available for testing and clearing allergens in our clinics.

Muscle testing is a biofeedback technique used to gain information directly from the body’s own innate intelligence. Our clients are attempting to resist our practitioners’ gentle pressure on a muscle, for example on an extended arm. If our client is holding a vial with an allergen, they will be unable to resist the practitioner’s gentle pressure, the sign of an allergic imbalance.

Muscle testing is not without limitations, critics and errors. However, many different practitioners are using it (Chiropractors, Naturopathic Physicians, Nutritionists, Acupuncturists and others) and countless clients have experienced life-changing results with allergy elimination, which carries no risk!

Boxes of Acupuncture NeedlesSecond, we determine which allergen or group of related allergens we clear during the session. For example we would clear all the different trees our client is allergic to in one session or all the different sugars, but not sugars and trees in one session. Then they remain in skin contact with these vials for the rest of the session.

Percussive massage is applied to the back of our client, while breathing in a specific pattern. Additionally, modified Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT) can be used to improve the results. This involves holding Acupressure points on the face and head, while speaking positive affirmations. The idea behind this is to harmonize the nervous and meridian system with the allergen, so the body no longer needs to react to it.

Third, our clients receives an Acupuncture treatment, while they continue to be in skin contact with the vials which are being cleared. This serves to integrate the changes made during the session on a deep energetic level. This Acupuncture treatment will be focused on the health concerns we deem most important; often it is focused on the treatment of pain.

Fourth, our clients avoid the allergen we cleared for the 24 hours after their session.

We like to call this four step protocol the Mediation session between the allergen and the person’s body.

Our team of Licensed Acupuncturists are trained in Allergy Elimination and we offer this service in our clinics in Hood River and The Dalles.

Ideally these sessions are received twice per week or weekly for 5 treatments initially, followed by an evaluation. Each sessions is 60 to 75 minutes.

One Allergy Elimination session is valued at $45, which is in addition to the cost of the Acupuncture treatment (If billed to Insurance: co-pay or co-insurance or payment at time of service) The Allergy Elimination session is not billable to insurance.

Testimonial from one of our clients:

I have had a fairly severe allergy to cats and some dogs for about 20 years. I have taken a number of prescription and over the counter medications without noticeable improvement. 
My daughter has a number of animals that irritated my allergies, preventing me to spend much time at her home.
I had 1 allergy elimination session with Carola and I am thrilled to say that I had no symptoms after spending most of the day at my daughter’s home. It is wonderful to be able to spend time with my daughter and grandchildren with comfort.  My only regret is waiting so long to try this.
