ASTHMA – Inflammation of the Airways
“Caused by Allergies, Airborne Irritants and a lot more.”
Common Causes of Asthma
Two main factors contribute to asthma: inflammation of the airway passages and hyper-reactive bronchi.
When triggered by stimulus certain cells lining the airways release chemical substances called mediators that lead to inflammation. This inflammation causes the airway passages to swell, the cells lining the bronchi to produce excess mucus, and the airway opening to narrow.
Hyper-reactivity is when the bronchi respond to stimuli in an exaggerated way by constricting the airway muscles and making it difficult to breathe.
Some stimuli triggers are: different kind of pollen, food, dust, mold, animal hair, smoke, perfumes, deodorants, detergents, chemical vapors, preservatives, food colors, virus, bacteria, emotional stress, cold or hot weather, pharmaceuticals, and many more. Things escalate to an emergency when multiple factors compile on top of each other.
The threshold of a trigger reaction is often influenced by other underlying systemic inflammatory conditions such as food allergies (knowingly or not) as well as latent infections. One of the many surprising experiences from my clinical work has been how many people are unaware of their food allergies. They may be subtle, but they do cause a general state of inflammation anywhere in the body, depending on a person’s genetic profile or make-up.
Finding the Causes and Triggers
It is important to realize that different varieties of allergies and sensitivities and dormant infections together cause Asthma. The question poses: How do we find them all.
There are many different ways to identify the actual inflammatory causes of asthma: One can find them by traditional means and allergy testing. For allergy testing through blood work to be helpful, one needs to look for IgG mediated allergies NOT just IgE related allergies.
What I use is 3 different searches, depending on the presenting individual situation.
1) Genome wide genetic testing will actually reveal the underlying mutational facts.
2) Kinesiology and Muscle Testing with test kits containing vials.
3) Reactivity testing of data bases through new Biofeedback technology (IMAET system).
And of course, samples and items which patients present because they are aware of being allergic to them or they bring in to be tested for by Muscle Reflex Testing (MRT). i.e. “Doctor, can you test me for this shampoo, I have a feeling I may be allergic to it”.
Another important factor is to become aware of the shear number of different items a person can have difficulties with as far as processing them within the body is concerned. This ‘processing’ of allergens means breaking these substances down for metabolism or detoxification, which is executed by an infinite number of enzymes, each of which is governed by a set of genes. And yes, there are lots of mutations within those genes, SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) being the simplest and most frequent form thereof. The average person has thousands of these simple mutations, causing inflammation within the metabolism. Remember, metabolism happens at the cellular level. It’s our cells that execute all fundamental functions of life, and it’s in the nucleus of each cell where our DNA is located. Oh, and did I mention, you are made up of 100 trillion cells.
Treating the causes
The SHOW Method spells out a protocol on how to effectively eliminate and alleviate each layer of these allergies and irritants. I personally experienced this phenomenon of gently and non-invasively reducing allergy-driven inflammation first over 15 years ago with a technique known as NAET® (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique). Building on some of this knowledge, I have developed a drug free and natural solution to alleviate allergies of all types and intensities, the SHOW Method. It’s using a blend of selective energy balancing, energy testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathic, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine as well as sophisticated software technology.
How can we accomplish the alleviation of inflammatory triggers and allergies?
Besides common sense lifestyle choices, particularly a nurturing diet, high in nutrition and low in chemicals and toxins, we can harmonize genetic expression with special energetic signatures that resonate with particular low functioning or dysfunctional genes belonging to dysfunctional enzymes. Enzymes are the workhorses of our bodies and execute all biochemical reactions in the body. If done correctly, this energetic biofeedback appears to harmonize genetic expression of metabolism and immune function. The benefits of this improved genetic expression being a decrease in allergic sensitivity and inflammation, better detoxification capability and increased immune function.
I have seen life long cases of asthma resolve completely. In older people it takes more work, more treatments and longer treatment periods. In young people it’s a rather quick and more efficient process. The lifelong benefits and the freedom of not being dependent on an inhaler are remarkable, I feel. Another big advantage for younger people receiving these kind of energy treatments is what I have observed and science is confirming, that because these treatments are changing genetic expression the improvement in function is also heritable.
My book “One Thousand Shades of Pink” has 2 different chapters about Asthma cases of an older person and a young person. It’s an interesting and funny read, and a bit more in detail.
Asthma in many cases can be permanently alleviated by following the described trail of allergies, infections and mutations. In some cases emotional traumas are also involved. The treatment protocols are energetic and involve many ancient and modern energy procedures. My SHOW Method is one such technique including epigenetic and genomic knowledge in the protocols.
