A lady brought her four-year-old daughter to see me for re-occurring ear infections. The daughter had several rounds of antibiotics, but the ear infections kept coming back, again and again. Through careful allergy testing, I was able to determine, that the little girl was lactose intolerant. The allergy testing revealed, that dairy products were triggering the condition. In a matter of four weeks, this milk allergy related infections were resolved.
Inspired by the prompt resolution of her daughter’s problem, the mother decided to discuss a more personal problem. She stated, that she suffered from bouts of chronic vaginal infections, and was wondering if dairy was somehow triggering her situation. I informed the mom that there are several possibilities for repeated vaginal infections:
1 – candida (yeast)
2 – bacteria (bacterial vaginosis)
3 – trichomonas (parasite)
4 – HPV (human papillomavirus)
5 – synthetic tampon sensitivity
6 – latex condom allergy
7 – flora imbalance due to birth control pills
It was determined through kinesiology/muscle testing, that the mother had an allergy to semen. Semen is known to cause itching, burning and discomfort. Fortunately, through holistic allergy care (NAET technique), it was relatively easy to cure this allergy. The mother’s symptoms completely cleared up in three sessions. Best of all, her husband never faced the accusation of causing his wife’s discomfort.
Semen allergies are not common, but they do occur. Medications for the condition are available for temporary relief, but they often trigger new symptoms and side-effects. The holistic treatments are safe and efficient in eliminating allergies and irritations permanently.
Sometimes the symptoms caused by sexual intercourse could be caused by a sensitivity to latex. Latex allergies or sensitivity is more common than we think.
Sometimes an allergic reaction could be due to an emotional reaction. In muscle testing women, if I have them think of sperm, their arm may go weak, indicating a underlying feeling that is stuck. Through a systematic procedure called NET (Neuro Emotional Technique) is possible to find the source of the trigger. It is important to look for biochemical allergies as well as emotional triggers.
Also there might be a hidden infection or imbalance of yeast. We all yeast in the body, but taking antibiotics may cause an imbalance in our normal yeast. Also taking antibiotics may cause an imbalance of bacteria. We all have billions of bacteria in our system, but an imbalanced caused by antibiotics which solved one problem may cause just another symptom. Taking probiotics after a bacterial infection not only restores bacterial balance in our system, but also restores the yeast balance.
Current medical research is exploring more and more the micro biome which has dramatic implications for our health and well being. Children with brain issues, like autism respond well to a concerted effort to balance our micro biome. Research might find that Alzheimer’s disease may be prevented by ensuring a balance micro biome. It is important to take a holistic perspective in addressing our symptoms.
A smart approach for your optimal well being is to use traditional medical care and alternative health therapies. Many medical doctors realize this and now have incorporated “functional medicine” in their approach to helping patients. The functional medicine view to is look forward the underlying causes of disease, rather than just give medications to control symptoms. Considerations are give to toxins, diet, allergies, hidden infections, and nutrition deficiencies. Modern medicine is focused on giving quick relief and a silver bullet answer for diseases. My experience has been that each individual is a complex being that requires immense investigation, rather than a slam-dunk or cookbook approach. Even though we live in a society with fast food mentality, nature more much more slowly, most of the time.
