Dear James,

Can my allergies be released from my body through the mind/body connection?  


An allergic response is a reaction that your immune system has to certain substances. If you have a cat allergy, your brain believes that this is a life threatening substance and your immune system goes into action to fight the substance. Your immune system produces histamines which are trying to remove the offending substance- thinking that this substance is life threatening.

Here is the truth about your allergies. Your brain is triggered by this substance, sends the message to your immune system which goes into immediate attack mode. You don’t have to actually be exposed to the substance. In most cases just seeing or thinking about the allergen starts to produce the response. In a guided meditation, if the guide suggests you are in a field of flowers, you will begin to produce histamines and start sneezing!

Your brain does have the ability to change. Guided meditation produces amazing changes in the subconscious mind… changes that often amaze doctors. We don’t really understand how the subconscious mind makes these changes, but the best part is that it works, it is extremely safe and you will be breathing freely, with a clear head, bright eyes.

Imagine how good you will feel if you no longer dread the blooming flowers of spring, or going into a house that has cats, or being susceptible to certain foods? You can read about these techniques and decide for yourself how good life will be without allergies. The choice is up to you – to live with allergies or not. You do have a choice.
