A.R.T. Allergy Release Technique® is an integrative methodology that focuses on building and strengthening the body’s immune system with the goal of eliminating allergic responses. A.R.T. is a unique combination of advanced energy medicine and Western technology, working to balance an individual’s energy to allow the immune system to function optimally.
An individual’s immune system can become overloaded for many reasons, such as infection, environmental toxins, and immunizations. When the immune system is overloaded, it becomes overactive and is in a “heightened state” that triggers an immune response to harmless foods and substances. In other words, the immune response triggers what is commonly referred to as an “allergic reaction.”
All kids with severe allergies have an over-reactive immune system. Their bucket is full. The first component of the A.R.T. process that sets it apart from anything else is that A.R.T. addresses the overloaded immune system. Amy developed a protocol based on functional health using a Galvanic Skin Response Device. She is looking at the body’s systems as a whole, seeing which systems are stressed and figuring out what microorganisms and toxins are creating the stress. Amy has also identified five trigger allergens that habitually create stress in the body and contribute to the heightened immune response. They are mold, dust, chemicals, sugars and additives. When she uses homeopathy to balance the immune system she also makes sure these five allergens do not stress the body.
Along with balancing and strengthening the immune system, A.R.T. has varied tools that support the anxiety response in the body: kids tap specific Acupuncture Points to reroute the Autonomic Control System and deactivate old scripting. They use mantras, vision boards and grateful journals to create a new story. They let their “firefighters” (immune response) know that they are strong and ask them to step back so they can safely eat the foods.
Once the immune system is strong and the “firefighters” step back, the food allergen is introduced. Starting on the skin, then graduates to carefully supported incrementally increased ingestion until the child can safely free-eat and integrate the food into daily life.
