About A.R.T.™

What is A.R.T.™

Allergy Release Technique™

A.R.T.™ is an integrative, functional health program that is based on looking at the body and all of it’s systems as a whole. The core of the process is about bringing balance back to the immune system so that the body can heal itself naturally. We will find what is stressing the immune system and then we will work to build and strengthen it. We do this by using a combination of Energy Medicine and Western technology (Biomeridian

machine).  This whole evaluation is based on the premise that every object has an energetic frequency. We will measure how the frequency of a particular organism or allergen is affecting your energy field. We do this by using the Galvanic Skin Response Device (GSRD) by Biomeridian. The GSRD works with meridians: a network of energetic pathways that pass through organs and tissues in the body. Acupuncture points act as windows into the meridian system. When we apply the GSRD to specific acupuncture points, the bio-energetic energy (a radio wave of frequency) travels through your meridians and allows A.R.T.™ to evaluate which systems are out of balance or stressed. Determining the blockages and sources of stress on the immune system is critical for us to help to rebalance your body back to a state of optimal health.  The best way to understand the link between allergies (or auto-immune disorders) and the immune system is to think about the immune system as a bucket. When the bucket

is full, anything else coming in will cause the water to spill or seep out. Similarly, when the immune system is overloaded, the body will become more reactive to it’s environment and to a variety of foods.

The Visit

The first visit, approximately a ninety-minute appointment, is a non-invasive assessment of your general health history with a complete functional health evaluation. Identifying the elements that stress the immune system is critical to emptying the allergy “bucket” and supporting the the body’s ability to deactivate allergic responses to foods.

After the pertinent health information has been collected, a functional health evaluation of the immune system using the Galvanic Skin Response Device (GSRD) by International Health Technologies is performed. A detailed assessment on the immune system includes the digestion, lymphatic, hepatic, adrenal and nervous system. The evaluation looks for microorganisms that overload these systems such as bacteria, viruses, candida, mold, parasites, heavy metals and vaccinations. These microorganisms place strain on the body’s gut health, which is inextricably linked to the immune system. Approximately 70-80% of your immune system function is located within your digestive system. The gut is often the first entry point for exposure to pathogens (bad bacterias and virus’ that cause disease. Therefore it is vital to your health to strive for a healthy digestive system.  When the the immune system is taxed, it will often manifest itself in gastrointestinal problems (IBS, excessive gas, heart burn, constipation, diarrhea, etc) and auto-immune diseases. We will also look to see if any side effects from heavy metals or vaccinations are causing an imbalance to the nervous system.  If candida is found to be present in the body, I will recommend a very good quality probiotic to be taken daily. This will help to clean out the gut and bring balance to your digestive system. Candida is a microorganism that is naturally present in your gut, part of the balanced system that helps you to digest food and stay fit and well. When the gut

is compromised by the use of antibiotics, too much sugar in the diet and various

illnesses, candida can become imbalanced and can then cause disruption in the

digestive process. It is critical to clean out the gut in order to bring balance to the

immune system so that natural healing can take place.  After creating customized support for your immune system based on the findings, one of the five trigger allergens that also attribute to the heightened immune response is worked on. These five trigger allergens are mold, dust, additives, chemicals and sugars. It is essential to restore balance in how the immune system handles these allergens in order to restore balance to the immune system.

During the weekly visits, we will repeatedly evaluate your immune system. Every

imbalance that we found in the previous visit will be retested to see if balance has been restored.

It is important to understand that the success of A.R.T.™ depends on a true

commitment to the process. In order for this technique to work, a commitment to come weekly for 30 minutes is required. The actual length of time it will take to restore you body back to health depends on how your body responds and the severity of your allergies.

Please feel free to ask questions about the process as we go. The success of this

treatment depends fully upon an open line of communication and trust between the

client and the practitioner. We are a team and we are working together to bring you

back to good health!
