Allergies can develop during important life transitions. By: Louise Grenier (Homeopath, NLP, Body Talk & EFT practioner, intensive care nurse) Dec. 2015
Allergies often develop during times of transition. Such transitions are limitless and can include things such as moving to a new place, becoming pregnant and going through pregnancy, getting married, becoming ill, going through puberty or a divorce/break up, career transitions or promotions, leaving a religion and so on. During these periods of transition, we must adapt to all kinds of new situations and develop new routines. Eventually, we become accustomed to these new situations and eventually everything becomes familiar. The more familiar we are to a certain situation, the more comfortable it feels. However, before becoming familiar and comfortable with particular situations, there is a period of adaptation where we are under stress.
During this period of adaptation, your immune system is also working at finding out who you are, what is you and what is not you. If you are under stress for several weeks and you are eating a particular food every day, your subconscious may relate that particular food to the stressful life situation that you find yourself in. From that point on, that particular food may become connected with stress and your immune system will activate when you come in contact or consume that particular food. That specific food has now become an allergen for you.
When you are in a familiar environment, your immune system knows who you are and what is safe for you. When you are in period of transition, your immune system is in a state where everything is strange, where everything is new. Your immune system must differentiate what is safe and what is not safe in this new environment. Mistakes are done by the immune system, which can categorize something as dangerous even though it is quite safe. This is why allergies often start during periods of transition. Let’s call it a mistake of classification on the immune system’s behalf.
Here is a testimonial from Ashley who was allergic (in her own words) to the earth! Testimonial: Ashley was allergic to grass, pollen and trees… and cats. I was allergic to grass, pollen, trees and the earth. I would break out in hives, and my eyes would be all bloodshot and watery, and my sinuses would hurt. I would get really, really itchy if I had bare feet in grass and would get rashes.”
When did you experience allergies?
All year long, it would be really bad in the summertime; in the wintertime I had issues with dust. I wasn’t going outside, the last couple of years I spent a lot of time indoors, so I wasn’t able to go for walks. As soon as there was pollen in the air I hid inside because I would get sneezy… so just not being able to enjoy going outdoors. I am twenty-six years old, I have been suffering eight years really badly, probably twenty years in total.
What are you able to do now that you were not able to do before?
This last week I’ve been outside a lot, in bare feet and I can go up to cedar and spruce trees and rub myself with it and not get rashes. Pollen's everywhere and it’s not bothering me. It is the month of May and there is a lot of pollen floating in the air, and it’s dry and it’s dusty and the grass is all prickly.
How many times did you see Dr. Grenier for allergies?
Could you tell me about your experience with Dr. Grenier:
How did you get rid of these allergies?
I think it’s really neat because… The actual experience is neat in that she takes you through a visualization experience so that you can basically delete that program so that you don’t have those allergies. And it (the treatment) wasn’t very long, it was an hour, and then I went outside and breathed in pollen and rolled in the grass and nothing, no allergies!
If you had to put a price on your health, how much would that be worth?
It’s priceless. People spend thousands of dollars on stupid things... we can choose between taking a vacation for one week or being out of allergies and being able to breath for 12 months of the year for the rest of your life. You only have one body; this is all you got, you have to work through issues.
Prior to Dr. Grenier, what solutions did you have for your allergies:
I was using Claritin, nasal rinses and staying inside. What was the advice from your previous Allergy Specialist? His advice was to: 1) Get rid of your cats, 2) Never go into a forest, 3) Stay inside and take your inhaler, 4) Claritin, 5) There is no solution. A bonus! Two weeks after her treatment for pollen, grass and tree allergies, she has found that her cat allergies have also disappeared. She is thrilled that she can fully enjoy the two cats she shares her house with.
