Important Alternative Technique
One of the most important alternative techniques I have found for my children and myself has been natural allergy elimination or desensitization. It is a natural way to stop the immune system from overreacting to substances in both its internal environment and in the external environment. Millions of people suffer from environmental allergies and food allergies, but do not realize all of the culprits that are causing them harm. The reaction to an allergen may not appear for up to 72 hours (three full days) after exposure. This can make it nearly impossible to determine what has triggered the response.
How Does It Work?
Natural allergy elimination treatment combines kinesiology, homeopathy, and acupressure to determine which allergens you are sensitive to. This technique can be done on an individual of any age. The first appointment with a practitioner should take about an hour and will be used for assessment. The skilled practitioner will test your body’s immune response by muscle testing or performing computerized testing, while the patient simply touches the glass vials of homeopathic tinctures corresponding to serums that contain potential allergens.
Sensitivity levels are gauged from one to ten. These serums cover every base. They test for foods, chemicals, various toxins, pollen, barometric pressure, electromagnetic fields, your own animals’ hair, supplements, medications, and much more. Supplements, medications, dust, or animal samples from your own home can be brought in for assessment and treatment too.
Once the allergens are found, future 30-minute sessions are scheduled. During treatment, the patient holds onto or touches the vial with the homeopathic allergen in it. The vial can also be laid on top of a person or put into the person’s sock to hold it against the body. While the patient is in contact with the vial, the practitioner gently stimulates specific acupressure points along the spine in order to stimulate the central nervous system. Then acupressure points are stimulated on the arms and legs to open the rest of the meridians throughout the body. This opens the energy flow and allows the energy from the vials to flow through the body so that the body now recognizes that energy as safe.
Once this is complete the patient rests for fifteen minutes while in contact with the homeopathic vial containing the allergen. After the treatment is over the patient must stay out of contact with the allergen for a specific amount of time (see below). Once complete the body sees the energy of the molecule, but now knows it is safe and stays calm. It changes the old patterns of defense.
Afterwards, highly restricted diets are often no longer necessary. Once you are desensitized, you can eat or use the products, but I would still encourage you to do so with some discretion.
The body will let you know if you have had too much of something by showing symptoms. Do not worry. This will rarely undo the treatment; it just lets you know your level of tolerance. Treatment is very individualized.
History of the Allergy Elimination Technique
The allergy elimination technique has gone through three generations. All generations are still available today. I will explain some of the important differences between the generations.
- The first generation allergy elimination technique was developed by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad. It is commonly known as Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique or NAET.
NAET can only desensitize an individual for one allergen per appointment. If only one, two, or three allergens show up, then this is fine. The downside of this technique is that commonly ten, twenty, or more allergens show up. Using this technique, it can take many more appointments, which means more time and more money. The patient also needs to stay out of contact with the allergen for 24 hours after the treatment. That being said, NAET does work well, and my family has had great success with it. It is good to know, however, that additional options do exist. Practitioners are easy to find as many have been trained over the years. To find one near you, go to www.naet.com.
- The second generation allergy elimination technique was developed by one of Dr. Nambudripad’s students, Ellen Cutler. Dr. Cutler developed a refined program she calls BioSET. It is a combination of organ detoxification, enzyme therapy, and allergy desensitization. Muscle testing and homeopathic vials are not commonly used to identify allergens in BioSET. Instead, computer software is used to detect potential allergens to the system.
As the patient holds onto a small metal rod, his or her energies become connected with the computer program. Thousands of allergens have been programmed into the system. The practitioner uses a small probe on the palm of the hand to connect with the computer software system.
Once the allergens are found, the same acupressure points along the spine are stimulated. An additional benefit to this method is that multiple allergens can be desensitized in one treatment, taking less time and costing less money. The amount of time one stays away from the allergen after treatment varies per individual. For some, it may be a few hours, but for others it may need to be closer to 24 hours. For a BioSET practitioner near you go to www.drellencutler.com, and look under “BioSET system,” or call (415) 384-0200.
- The third generation allergy elimination technique is called Sensitivity Reduction Technique (SRT). This method was developed by Dr. Shari Tenpenny. Dr. Tenpenny is one of the country’s most knowledgeable and outspoken physicians regarding vaccines and the right to refuse them. She has developed additional attributes to allergy desensitization. For more information please visit tenpennyimc.com.
SRT uses muscle testing and homeopathic vials, but has the additional benefit of using Chinese energy medicine balancing vials. It gives the body a new template. After the immune system has been told to stop doing what it has been doing incorrectly, it needs to be redirected to do something it is supposed to do instead. The body needs to be given an action that he or she can do or, just like a child, it may begin doing something else that you no longer want it to do.
SRT is capable of desensitizing multiple allergen groups in one treatment. Usually a total of only one to six treatments are needed. Allergens can be done in groups and are done in a specific order called foundations. Foundations of the body build upon one another, so they must be done in order.
- Foundation One is the immune system. It includes things in our internal environment that are always with us and that we cannot get rid of. These things include blood, lymph, urine, saliva, glandular secretions, the immune system, and the central nervous system.
- Foundation Two is phenol compounds. These include things we are surrounded by and cannot permanently get away from. The main compounds we are exposed come from petroleum products, mostly plastics.
- Foundation Three is the molecules that make up our nutrition, such as proteins, fats, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Once these are addressed, you will see more digestion of beneficial nutrients.
A three-hour wait time is all that is needed after a treatment. During this three-hour period, the patient must stay away from all foods and potential allergens. In comparison to the other treatments, this is a very short wait time. Due to the deprogramming of old cellular memory, after three hours the system knows the proper way to handle the energy from any of the treated allergens.
Our Story with Allergy Desensitization
Many years before his SRT treatments, my son had been desensitized from gluten by our NAET practitioner. When retested, he was still clear, but tested positive, or allergic, to white flour. They seem so similar but apparently, they have a different molecular makeup. Although green food coloring had come up years before, now red food coloring tested positive. It was the SRT treatment that showed us that my son’s body was not processing essential fatty acids (EFA’s). Our SRT practitioner was able to balance his body so that it could now assimilate them. EFA’s are crucial for optimum physical and mental health.
Does It Work?
In studies of patients treated through SRT, 87% were still completely allergy-free five years later. Our son is allergy-free after his treatments as well. If you suspect you or your child has allergies to something in your environment, you might want to consider using one of these three methods to find out and improve your health!

Hello, I had stomach damage some years ago from prescription medication. Since then I have allergies to shellfish, and then some years later developed an allergy to pork. I have been to a naturopath who explained that my body can’t break them down therefore sees it as an attack. Can you please advise if any of these treatments helps.
First of all I am so sorry for the late reply. I somehow did not see this earlier.
The answer to your question is yes, natural allergy desensitization could definitely help you. These practitioners work with people who even have the fatal peanut allergies and have great success. It is definitely worth seeing a practitioner to find out. Interview them and be sure they have experience.
I am looking for a SRT practitioner in Southern California. I have contacted the tenpennyimc website but they can not refer me. Any thoughts?
I know of one on the central coast in Paso Robles. Her name is Stephanie Austin, and her website is, wellnessbymothernature.com. You could either drive up to see her, or ask her if she knows of one nearer to you.
Thank you for this information. Have used naet for my son with moderate success. Was wondering what your opinion is about which of these three methods are best. Naet practitioners would say you have to do only one or vials at a time. This might be true., not sure, but that method is very time consuming and slow. Thanks for your thoughts. Maria
Great question. Yes, I prefer SRT. They can remove multiple allergens in one appointment and have a way to redirect the body’s allergic responses that has been much more effective for our family.
Is there an SRT practitoner in Texas? Or in Florida or the California Bay area (I have family there). My son has MANY allergies as well as autism.
The best place to ask for SRT practitioners would be tenpennyimc.com. They train some of them and may be able to help you find one.
I called Tenpenny Integrative Medicine and they are not able to help me locate any practitioners in my area. How would I go about finding a SRT practitioner in Minnesota or Southern California? I am reading your book currently and I find it is very easy to read and very helpful. Thank You so much for sharing all of your information and your journey. My son is 7 years old and has autism and sensory issues. We are currently doing NAET and have been for the past 2 years. It is a slow process, but we have seem some remarkable improvements. I hope to have my son free of Autism some day soon like yours. Thank You, Kellie
Yes, it can be more difficult to find SRT trained practitioners. Dr. Tenpenny’s clinic is the best resource. I’m surprised they couldn’t give you any leads. I know of one in my area here in Central California, but they don’t have any type of directory specific to them. I’m not sure where you are in California but you could ask Stephanie who is the one near me or you could travel to see her. I know NAET is a longer process because they can only treat one at a time, where SRT can treat multiples. Stephanie can be contacted at wellnessbymothernature.com.
I have had the same problem locating a practioner in maine. The tenpenny website was not helpful alas.
If people start finding SRT trained practitioners, could you post them here? I emailed email@example.com and the email came back as not being able to be delivered! I am looking for a practitioner in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
Yes, the SRT practitioners are harder to find and they don’t have a directory. The NAET practitioners are much easier to find.
Where is the practioner near my area that I can see & costs? I live in Leppington, NSW 2179
