In this post on the series about allergy we will look at some of the ways in which you can manage allergies. This area of support is often over looked by the conventional medical approach which is either drug or avoid. There are other things that can be done to change the likelyhood of reactions that are drug free.
This article is adapted from a reply written by me in the Student BMJ online forum on the role of CAM in medicine

As a CAM practitioner it would be very easy for me to take the opposite position that is offered by Margaret McCartney in her opening article. Talk about how much good CAM intervention offers, talk about the failures of the medical profession. To nit pick about her offering of Homeopathy's failure in malaria (which most well trained homeopathists would not agree is responsible either), to look at the way she talks about lessons learned from drugs like thalidomide as if the same mistakes are still not taking place and that the gold standard of medical science isn't showing its tarnish these days in a system that is frankly showing more than a few cracks.
In our previous post in this series on allergies, we looked at various ways of defining allergy and low tolerance. Along with what some of the implications of those varying differences mean.
Within this post we will be focussing on the various methods of identifying allergy, with some of the benefits and limitations of each test. Much of this discussion will deal with the variances in tests, due to the different things they are looking for. You can understand this a little better by also seeing the previous post. We will also give a frank and open review of the benefits and limitations of using kinesiology for testing for allergy.
This first post in the short series on allergy will be looking at the question of what is an allergy? This may seem like an easy question to answer but it depends very much on the definition that you are using. In later posts we will be looking at ways that we can identify allergies, how we can manage them and to look at the concept of an Emotional Allergy which is generated through Shadow Self repression and affects us at a different level than the majority of allergies but is significant for our health none the less.
