What is an Allergy?

According to NAET theory, an allergen is a substance viewed by the brain as a threat to the body’s well being. When contact is made with the allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called Meridians( based on Acupuncture theory). The normal flow of energy or "qi" is disrupted throughout the body’s electrical circuits or system. This blockage causes disruption in communication between the brain and the body via the nervous system. This begins a chain of events activating an allergic response, including overproduction of histamine which then causes symptoms such as hives, itching, nasal congestion, red eyes, etc.
