The main cause of allergies is a software error in ones' brain-computer or let's say one's brain-computer software has a 'virus'. This virus causes malfunction of the software, leading to malfunction of all the body functions. This causes the body to become sensitive to everything in its surroundings. The malfunctioning program does not recognize things surrounding the body anymore.
In people with allergies, the normal imprint (memory) about the harmless of substances such as peanuts, fish, pollen dust, perfume, etc., has somehow been erased from the brain's memory and has substituted the memory with new information that identifies the substance as being dangerous. Thus, the immune system mistakes a harmless substance for a dangerous intruder it must destroy. When a person with allergies is exposed to something it perceives to be an allergen, the immune system produces antibodies to fight it as a harmful invader.
Yin-Yang theory from Oriental medicine principles teaches the importance of maintaining homeostasis in the body. According to Oriental medical principles, "when the body is in perfect balances, no disease is possible". Any disturbance in the homeostasis can cause disease. Any allergen capable of producing a weakening muscular effect in the body can cause disturbance in homeostasis. Hence, diseases can be prevented and cured by maintaining homeostasis. According to acupuncture therapy, acupuncture and or acupressure at certain acupuncture points is capable of bringing the body to a state of homeostasis by removing the energy blockages from the energy pathways known as meridians. When the blockages are removed, energy can flow freely through the energy meridians, thus bringing the body in perfect balance. NAET uses this technique along with other medical disciplines to maintain optimum health.
