What happens when a chronic illness or a chronic problem like allergies is cured? What happens when an entire family’s health is changed by a natural and non-invasive treatment? This is the story of one family who turned to a revolutionary chiropractic treatment after all traditional medical methods had been exhausted and found relief and cures for chronic and debilitating conditions.
How many people can really say, “I used to have the Epstein Barr Virus?” Epstein Barr Virus is like Chronic Fatigue. Epstein Barr Virus is also a chronic illness. After being sick with the Epstein Barr Virus for twelve years (from age 17-29), I did the revolutionary NAET treatment with Dr. Kris H. Hansen, D.C. and have now been Epstein Barr free for more than three years! It is like getting a new lease on life! I went from a complete hopeless feeling to getting my life back!
NAET stands for Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique. It is an innovative treatment system for allergies that is completely natural, painless and non-invasive. This treatment can be used on anyone of any age. NAET can compliment other medical therapies requiring the use of pharmaceutical drugs (e.g. antibiotics, chemotherapy, radiation) to treat for any side effects and to maximize the effectiveness of the drugs.
NAET has been a life preserver for both me and several members of my family. In my own personal experience, I was a teenager who struggled to have a normal fun high school experience. I fell asleep during tests and slept in between indoor track meet races. During my senior trip, one of my friends stayed by my side as I slept on a bench at Disneyland. Then, I struggled to work and go to college. Fortunately, I did graduate. I met and married my best friend and we had three children and debated about number four because of my health. I did the NAET treatment while I was pregnant with number four. I am so glad we decided to have four amazing little people. No more feeling sick, tired, and depressed! What a blessing.
Little did I know how NAET would bless my family in addition to helping me? Because of my treatment, my family would not have to live with a mom who tried to push through the sickness and tiredness. But that was just the first blessing NAET brought to our family. My husband was treated for outdoor allergies two years ago. Our seven-year=old Dallas got staff infection from a spider bite or mosquito, (the doctors couldn’t tell which one) while camping a year and a half ago. He spent two days in the hospital. He has since had a bad reaction to a horse fly and a bee sting. Scary! He too was treated and we will no longer have to worry about insect bite allergies. How do you avoid things like that?
In June 2009, our ten-year-old, Bosten got the swine flu and strep at the same time. After that, his immune system just seemed totally out of whack. He would get diarrhea and then he would get better. He got strep a couple of more times. He swung back and forth between illness and then a pseudo-better with diarrhea. I was continually told that it was just a virus. In September 2009, I had had enough. I told the doctor that I wanted his immune system tested and whatever else they could think of. I told them something just isn’t right.
I also told the doctor that he had suffered from molescum, which is a skin virus, for a year and couldn’t get rid of it. Occasionally, the molescum would cause infection and settle in his lymph nodes. He was given antibiotics and had even had to have some removed. All of the tests came back negative, except that he was positive for strep. Not too long after being on antibiotics, he got terrible stomach pain and diarrhea. We went back to the doctor where he was tested for illnesses which are caused by antibiotics. They were going to run some other tests as well.
A few days later and after several doses of probiotics, he seemed to be doing better. I called the doctor right before we left town to go camping and he said his white blood cells were high but everything else came back negative.
He told us to go ahead and go. By Sunday, we were in the ER because the diarrhea had returned, he was listless, and now he was throwing up! When we arrived at the ER, I briefed the doctor on call and she checked his records discovering that for some reason the test done for C- diff (the sickness caused by antibiotics) had not been done. He had C-diff and ended up in the hospital for five days.
Bosten relapsed and had C-diff again, got his tonsils out to prevent strep and boost his immune system and was given more antibiotics. In December 2009, Bosten had a colonoscopy because he was still having problems and they thought he had Crohn’s disease. After his colonoscopy they told Bosten he still had some irritation in his bowels and he had a hernia. In two weeks, he was supposed to be feeling better. But he wasn’t and now he had been sick for seven months. On top of all that he was starting to become depressed. After a trip to Primary Children’s Hospital in Northern Utah, the conclusion was inconclusive: Maybe the infection caused nerve damage to his stomach.
Through studying, I discovered that this type of infection could cause reactive arthritis. And Bosten had been complaining of aching joints for some time. Once again, enough was enough. I took him to see Dr. Kris Hansen in February 2010 and he is still seeing him. Bosten is feeling much better. It is wonderful to have our old Bosten back. It has been a long time. After the first treatment for molescum, his skin condition disappeared. After eighteen months Bosten was molescum free! It is amazing that you can also treat depression without going on medications that have so many side effects. And this treatment is usually permanent!
I asked Dr. Hansen why some of the things that I had the other doctor’s test for had came back negative and yet those were some of the things we treated with NAET, and they worked. This included things like his immune system and foods. Dr. Hansen explained that medical tests are too standardized and therefore don’t pick up all the things that NAET does.
I tell you about my family because these are real stories about real people. I have read and heard about many more.
NAET is a truly revolutionary solution that provides relief from adverse reactions to new allergens and empowers the individual to live a better life. Now, after two decades of research and practical experience, allergy sufferers finally have an alternative to allergen avoidance and prescription medication, which can lead to other problems: a complete cure!
You may be thinking “I’m not allergic to anything.” That is what I thought. Too often, when we think of allergy, we think of an instant visible reaction or rash. From a western medical point of view, an allergy is an overreaction of the immune system. In NAET, allergies are viewed from a holistic perspective based on Oriental medical principles and defined in terms of the effect an allergic substance has on the energy in the body.
In essence, NAET would be better thought of as balancing energy. An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity of a person to one or more substances which may be harmless to the majority of other individuals. In the allergic person, the allergic substance (know as the allergen) 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 the energy pathways called meridians, disrupting the normal flow of energy through the body’s electrical circuits. This energy blockage causes interference in communication between the brain and body via the nervous system which begins a chain of events that can develop into an allergic response or serious illness. Undiagnosed allergies are often the cause of common or chronic illnesses which when left untreated can become serious or critical. NAET allows the body to regain normal balance and reach optimum health.
How are the specific substances that someone may be allergic to determined? NAET practitioners use Muscle Response Testing (MRT) to gauge the body’s reaction to specific substances. It is a painless and inexpensive diagnostic technique. Treatments are almost always permanent. Treatment requirements and length of time are unique for each patient.
As mentioned earlier, I saw Dr. Kris H. Hansen, D.C. at the Advanced Health & Pain Center in St. George, Utah. Patients have traveled internationally and across the United States to visit his center that practices NAET. Dr. Kris Hansen is a chiropractor and has successfully treated countless patients. Speaking from personal experience, the Advanced Health and Pain Center is committed to their patients and to making a difference in the lives of those they treat.
