Brain Allergies: Problems and Solutions
By Dr. Mark Light and Vickie Van Scyoc, RN
What do autism, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, headaches, or ordinary forgetfulness have in common? It might be allergies!
Symptoms of Brain Allergies Include:
- Learning disability
- Brain fog
“There is hardly any human disease or condition where allergic factors are not involved.”—Dr. Nambudripad, DC, LA.c, MD, PhD
Causes of Health Issues in the Brain
Sometimes, we are deficient in important brain enzymes or neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, serotonin, adrenaline, noradrenaline, or acetylcholine. If the neurotransmitters do not function properly, communication between the brain and different parts of the body can be seriously impaired.
Undiagnosed brain allergies can produce symptoms of various health disorders, including autism. Allergies to foods, chemicals, and inhalants can change the chemistry of the brain so radically that normal human behavior is dramatically altered. This alteration can result in mental and emotional illness.
A Holistic Definition and View of Allergies and Treatment
An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity to one or more substances, which may be harmless to the majority of other individuals. In the allergic person, the allergic substance is viewed by the brain as a threat to the body’s well-being. When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockages in energy pathways called meridians, disrupting the normal flow of energy through the body. This energy blockage throughout the brain and nervous system causes interference in communication between the brain and body, which begins a chain of events that can develop into an allergic response (i.e., depression, anger, poor memory, and other brain-related issues).
NAET: A Holistic Allergy Treatment for Brain Health
By removing the blockages in the energy meridians caused by allergies, the brain and body can regain normal function. We will use the example of autism; however, this information pertains to all of us.
Allergy-related autism is treatable. A study was done in 2005 using 60 nonverbal, noncommunicative autism subjects, ages ranging from 3 to 10 years (30 control and 30 experimental).
Eighty-eight percent of the children in the experiment group resumed normal living and enrolled in regular schools after successful completion of 50 NAET treatments in a span of one year! The control group did not demonstrate any significant improvement after one year. This study can be viewed on our website and on NAET.com. A new autism study is being done now with 1,200 children.
What Is NAET and How Can It Help Me?
NAET is an innovative solution for allergies that is completely natural, painless, and noninvasive, and it can be used safely on people of all ages. NAET can complement other medical therapies used in the treatment of autism. NAET can also treat for any side effects from vaccines, medications, vitamins, and minerals.
“Over the years people still ask me, “Don’t your allergies bother you any more?” I tell them about NAET and how it solved so may allergic reactions to everything from pollen to cats and dust. It’s really surprising how many of them never follow up on this treatment; and yes, I still see them around town sneezing and remind them.” Rahasya Poe
“Unfortunately, autism is on the rise by high percentages. The modern concept is that these children suffer from a toxic brain that may be due to nutritional deficiency, poorly tolerated immunizations, overuse of antibiotics, yeast overgrowth, inadequate detoxification. Underlying all of these may be allergy. Using NAET to treat the allergy, many children can be helped to regain normal function, I have seen it work miracles.”
—David Minkoff, MD, Board Certified in Pediatrics, Clearwater, FL
“In five sessions of NAET, our office saw Jacob, 14 years old, reverse his ASD to the point where he was able to go into a regular classroom for the first time and appeared to return to normal.”
—Mark Light, MD, Chico, CA
“I have seen NAET create amazing changes in autistic children that can allow communication breakthroughs that seemed impossible prior to treatment. We have received letters from teachers asking parents what changes have recently been made because their child suddenly is able to acknowledge and respond to questions that in the past resulted in little more than a blank stare.”
—Glenn Nozek, DC, Tom River, NJ
“My first autistic patient was a 29-year-old adult. When he began treatment with me, he was unable to communicate with anyone about his needs. He was incontinent and was on diapers. He behaved like a 2-year-old.
When he finished the first five NAET treatments, he was able to ask for his favorite food—ice cream. When he finished the mineral mix treatment, he stopped his bladder incontinence. By the time he completed his basic 15 treatments, he was on his way to recovery. Step by step, little by little, I watched how NAET transformed a violent, frustrated, autistic adult into a passive, focused, manageable state. Ever since I have seen many autistic patients go through similar processes. When children get the NAET treatments at a young age the results are phenomenal. NAET is a simple technique but it is powerful beyond imagination!”
—Mala Moosad, RN, LAc, PhD, Buena Park, CA
“NAET has changed my practice. NAET is a profound and fascinating technique of correcting allergy-related autism in children. In my experience of treating children using NAET since 1997, I have found the food and environmental allergies are the underlying causes of not only autism but most pediatric problems.”
—Sue Anderson, DC, Ann Arbor, MI
“As a retired psychiatrist, I have witnessed the great devastation and feelings of helplessness which many families have experienced by having an autistic child in the home. Now, with NAET, we finally have a treatment approach which is providing real improvement in these difficult cases. I applaud Dr. Devi for her great accomplishments in helping to relieve the suffering of her fellow humans.”
—Robert Prince, MD, NAET of North Carolina, Charlotte, NC
