Who Put the Woo Woo in Achoo?

Even for a stock photo, sir, this looks super staged.

Is the air trying to kill you? Does every season change bring feelings of dread as first one nostril, then the other, shuts down for business? Do you pop Claritin or Allegra or Zyrtec by the handful while praying for a merciful death? Do your eyes look redder and wetter than the latest loser on “The Bachelor”? Do you … 

You know what, we forgot where we were going with this.

Oh. Right. 


If you’ve got ‘em — whether they’re seasonal, caused by dust or pet dander, or any of the myriad environmental causes that make your life miserable — you have our deepest sympathies.

AJ herself is a longtime allergy sufferer and tried all of the conventional treatment methods. That included the over-the-counter drugs, the skin pricks that made her back light up like a Christmas tree, the shots. 

And here’s where this post starts to sound like an infomercial full of some next-level bulljive. But try to keep an open mind. We swear we wouldn’t try to sell y’all on something that was bogus or harmful. Also, we’ve got no affiliations with any of the practitioners, and we ain’t making a dime off any of it. So, there that is.

Anyhoo, in her quest to reduce her allergy symptoms, AJ stumbled upon a couple of alternative options, NAET and AAT.

As a quick explainer, NAET — or  Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Techniques — is a “non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to alleviate allergies of all types and intensities using a blend of selective energy balancing, testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine.”

Yeah, it’s getting a little woo-woo-y up in here. But stay with us.

AAT — or Advanced Allergy Therapeutics — “works directly with the relationship between the major organ systems and overreactions to harmless substances.”

AJ’s allergies are both seasonal and food-related, and she found that both NAET and AAT were incredibly helpful in eliminating her symptoms. She also has allergy-suffering friends who found the same to be true.

Keep in mind that neither treatment is usually covered by insurance. However, both are fairly inexpensive treatments. So, if you’ve tried typical allergy-relief methods and found them wanting, maybe give NAET or AAT a try. Just make sure you use a licenced practitioner of each.

And now, over to you. What have you all found especially helpful in treating your allergy symptoms? Spill the tea in the comments.
