Allergy Release Technique®
A.R.T.® is an integrative methodology focusing on building and strengthening the body’s immune system with the goals of eliminating allergic responses and alleviating other unwanted symptoms. A.R.T. is a unique combination of advanced energy medicine and Western technology, working to balance an individual’s energy to allow the immune system to function optimally.
An individual’s immune system can become overloaded for many reasons, such as infection, environmental toxins, stress, or other negative factors. When the immune system is compromised from an overload, it can result in unwanted symptoms. The immune system can also become overactive in a “heightened state” that triggers an immune response to harmless foods and substances. An "allergic reaction" is one of the common outcomes of an immune response. Individuals with severe allergies have an over-reactive immune system.
The first component of the innovative and unique A.R.T. process is addressing the overloaded immune system in a proprietary protocol. This protocol was developed based on functional health using a Galvanic Skin Response Device. A.R.T. looks at the body’s various systems as a whole to see which systems are stressed. In addition, A.R.T. systematically detects which microorganisms and toxins are creating the stress. A.R.T. also identifies five trigger allergens that habitually create stress in the body and contribute to the heightened immune response. Individualized treatments utilize homeopathy to balance the immune system.
Along with balancing and strengthening the immune system, A.R.T. has various additional tools to support the anxiety response in the body. Tapping of specific acupuncture points help to reroute the Autonomic Control System and de-activate old scripting of emotional and physical responses from symptoms. Mantras, vision boards and grateful journals are also utilized to shift perspective and insight into clients' emotional responses to anxiety.
What can A.R.T. help with?
By building and strengthening the immune system, A.R.T. helps your body to function optimally enabling us to treat a variety of health concerns.
The first visit is a 90 minute appointment. A non-invasive assessment is performed including a general health history and a complete functional health evaluation.
After the pertinent health information has been collected, a functional health evaluation of the immune system using the Galvanic Skin Response Device (GSRD) by International Health Technologies is performed. The GSRD works with meridians: a network of energetic pathways that pass through organs and tissues in the body. Acupuncture points act as windows into the meridian system. When the GSRD is applied to specific acupuncture points, the bio-energetic current travels through meridians and allows A.R.T.® to evaluate which systems are out of balance or stressed.
A detailed assessment on the immune system includes the digestion, lymphatic, hepatic, adrenal and nervous system. The evaluation looks for microorganisms that overload these systems such as bacteria, viruses, candida, mold, parasites, heavy metals and vaccinations. After creating a homeopathic based on the findings, the first of "five trigger allergens" attributing to a heightened immune response will be worked on. All of the five trigger allergens will be worked on extensively in follow up visits.
FOLLOW UP VISITS
During the follow up visits, focus will be on continuing to build and strengthen the immune system by looking at the overloads that are still contributing to an imbalance. It takes approximately three to six months to restore balance to the system. The five trigger allergens will be continuously evaluated and worked on as well.
When balance is restored and the immune system is functioning more effectively, a full sensitivity screening of over two hundred foods will be performed. It is important to look at all the underlying food sensitivities that are also contributing to the overloaded immune system before working on the actual diagnosed food allergens.
Once the immune system and all underlying sensitivities are in balance with the body, the known food allergens are stabilized. When this is achieved, the allergen is incrementally and slowly introduced starting on the skin, then graduating to carefully supported, incrementally increased ingestion. Length of treatment varies based on several contributing factors such as past exposure, how the body responds, severity of
allergies and overall anxiety around the food allergy. Each food allergen is worked on in isolation so as not to over-stress the body.
It is important to understand that the success of A.R.T. depends on a true commitment to the process so that immune support and food introduction are done consistently and thoroughly. In order for this technique to work, a commitment to come to a weekly appointment is imperative. The total length of treatment from start to finish will depend on how the body responds and the severity of symptoms and/or allergies.
