Sick, pregnant and fully aware of the dangerous side effects of medication, I was on a mission to find a way to help my body heal... NATURALLY!
I was six months pregnant and caring for two young children while my hands were painfully swollen from eczema and psoriasis. They were flaring up and swelling so badly I could hardly function anymore. Changing diapers, giving baths, doing dishes and laundry caused me excruciating pain. I was all too familiar with the side effects of topical steroids and was trying to avoid them at all cost. On the number of occasions in which I did resort to using the prescription, my skin became noticeably thinner and more prone to cracking. This only made matters worse because my hands were already so swollen I could barely bend my fingers. In fact, I would fear bending my fingers… afraid of opening more wounds. I would wear gloves over gauze dressings during the day to soak up the drainage and wrap them at night with a natural healing honey called Manuka in an effort to heal. The daily 800 mg of Ibuprofen was for pain from my swelling hands and provided occasional relief.
As if my swollen, cracked and oozing hands weren’t bad enough, I woke up in my third trimester of pregnancy with asthmatic symptoms. Where did this come from? I’d never had asthma before, but the uncontrollable coughing and wheezing were now keeping me awake at night. I would get two hours of sleep which would be remedied by sleeping mostly sitting up at night. My obstetrician prescribed antibiotics and steroids for a number of cycles. I also took for the next three months Albuterol and Singulair and then later switched to Advair. I did experience relief, but was leery about exposing my unborn child to these medications daily.
At this point I was taking up to 25 pills a day, which included a variety of nutritional supplements, 800 mg of Motrin and 25 mg of Benadryl at night. My asthma was controlled, but my eczema was still very severe. I broadened my efforts in an attempt to improve my condition and get off the medications by turning to specialists… a dermatologist, cardiologist, an allergist and a naturopath. Unfortunately, I received little to no relief. I was even told by my doctors that there is nothing more they could do for me, I would have to live like this for the rest of my life.
One sleepless night I ran across the NAET website and was intrigued by the fact it was a permanent allergy solution without the use of any pills, shots or medications of any kind. I began seeing a practitioner regularly without seeing any results until the fourth month. It was at this point, I was able to quit taking my asthma medication and my hands began to heal. I no longer had to wear my gloves. I couldn’t believe it! NAET had given me a glimmer of hope…to have a normal life again. It got better! I eventually was able to stop taking the daily doses of Motrin and Benadryl too. Today, I am breathing easily and my hands look like nothing has ever happened to them. After several years of being treated, I’ve remained symptom free… allergy free!
I’ve personally experienced the powerful healing effects of NAET and whole-heartedly believe the many health issues that have been labeled as “chronic or untreatable” can in fact be beat. I didn’t want my doctor determining my destiny and you don’t have to concede either. Our bodies are capable of handling almost anything as long as the barriers to healing are removed… and if our bodies are willing to accept it and not react to it. Dr. Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique IS the solution to permanent all-natural healing!
