NAET for ADHD and Autism

by Devi S. Nambudripad, DC, LAc, RN, PhD Alexander has dark circles under his eyes and a constant “cold.” After finishing off macaroni and cheese, he throws a temper tantrum when asked to hang up his jacket. He wants ice cream; his mother promises it after he finishes his homework. He throws his book at her. His doctor has diagnosed attention deficit disorder.  Is that the problem, or is he allergic to milk products? Treatment for Allergies Conventional western medicine diagnoses allergies with skin tests and blood analysis. Treatment by desensitization, using injections of allergenic substances over extended periods of time, is effective in some cases. Drugs such as antihistamines and steroids can alleviate symptoms. The only sure and completely effective option is total avoidance of the substance. Abstinence, of course, does not correct the underlying problem. Furthermore, with substances such as grass, milk, and wheat, abstinence can be difficult to impossible. Years ago, I resolved to find a cure…

BioSET for Allergy Elimination

An interview with Lauren Stone, PhD, MS, HHP, Homotoxicologist, BioSET practitioner, and holistic health practitioner How did you first become involved with BioSET treatment? I started out in academia and was finishing up my Ph.D. when my children were born. Once my children were born, they ran into a lot of health issues and my career path started to take some turns. My 2 year old had persistent projectile vomiting and my older son had chronic loose stools.  It was difficult finding treatment for my kids.  When we sought medical advice, all we were told was that this was normal and that there wasn’t anything we could do for them. Feeling frustrated with the medical establishment, I started researching on my own in an effort to figure out what was going on.  I thought my children’s problems had something to do with reactions to certain foods they were eating. I was frustrated in that I had three children, and all…

Alternative Treatment for Allergies

by Ayelet Connell-Giammatteo, P.T., I.M.T.,C. Recently, I visited with my son’s new preschool teacher.  One of the first questions that she asked me was if my son had any allergies.  I was pleasantly surprised. Honestly, my biggest fear in having my son begin school was that his food sensitivities would not be accommodated. When I mentioned that he had gluten sensitivity and peanut sensitivity, she exclaimed, “That’s great! We have plenty of gluten-free snacks in the classroom and the school is a peanut-free zone!” In fact, she mentioned that the only snacks that they provide to the children in the classroom are those that can be eaten by everyone. Now, I know that not every classroom is as allergy-friendly as this one.  But it leads us to consider a future of more possibilities. Allergies are becoming so commonplace today.  It is a rare family that does not have a child and/or parent with allergies. There are many signs and symptoms…

Approaches to Healing

Healing Modalities

While we would love to list organizations and healing approaches that are backed by leading medical institutions such as the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, or Mt. Sinai, the truth is that few of the mainstream conventional medical institutions have much to offer children with chronic illnesses in terms of actionable protocols for recovery or cure. While a tremendous amount of research is ongoing at these prestigious institutions (and we hope to see answers soon!), families dealing with chronic illnesses do not have time to wait. Thus, parents and some pioneering physicians and medical researchers have found that in order to heal children they have had to step outside the boundaries of convention. Remarkably, parents, physicians and researchers who have dared to step outside of convention have healed and recovered children from illnesses that were once thought to be lifelong or incurable.   One very important caveat is necessary here: Depending on the severity of illness, the path to recovery…
