Welcome to the

Conference Circle

These articles have been written in response to our clinical experiences over many years at the Balancing Center. Our comments and discoveries are not presented as the result of scientific research, since we do not perform double-blind cross-over controlled studies with placebos, single-nutrient deprivation, or animal experiments. However, we have come across some useful discoveries that we have verified, over time, on an individual basis in our clinical practice.
Every now and then we will present a new article describing something we have observed that may be of interest to health practitioners, researchers in nutritional biochemistry, and people with health questions who are searching for non-medical health information.

Allergy can be Initiated by a Play on Words

At the Balancing Center we think that there may be something like a word-thesaurus stored in the thalamus, where lists of words are classified according to sound, (not alphabetical,) and this is the resource we engage when we make jokes and puns. A highly charged word from a totally different context is often translated into a negative association to a food. Rather than a traumatic experience, word displacement can create a disconnection from a food or substance, and it shows up as an allergy. It’s enjoyable to look for silly jokes and play with words in a way that can lead us to laughter, and have them reveal an unexpected way to resolve a bothersome allergy.

Dad is the bread-winner, dough is money, and if we are afraid of Dad, or angry at him, or are anxious about money issues, we might initiate a wheat allergy. Corn allergy can be created by a moment of feeling cornered, or by brother’s embarrassing corny jokes, or not liking Mrs. Cobb, or because Dad drove the Frito-lay delivery truck. We had one client who had a salt allergy because he had felt emotionally assaulted throughout many years of his life.

Rice allergy can come up when we have strong response to the violation of human or animal rights. Or it could be about the last rites, or rice being thrown after a wedding. Fuel allergy could be about Aunt Ethyl, plastic allergy from rebelling against parents perceived as “plastic,” superficial and false, etc. Cat allergy can be derived from catty girls, fear of “cool cats,” or somebody catting around, or fear of being sent to the Catskill mountains for the summer.

Meat allergy comes up most often as a fear of not being able to meet impossible expectations, or meet the mortgage payments, etc. Taking a risk that involves high stakes, and losing, can produce a steak allergy, whereas other cuts of beef would be fine. People can get a gluten allergy when they go against the grain. Oat allergy could be initiated by being made to feel guilty for “feeling your oats” or some disastrous pregnancy as a result of sowing wild oats, etc. Soy can come up from an association with soiled, or in a Spanish context where “Soy” (I am ) has been discounted, and has not been allowed expression.

A Vibrational Resolution

Personal communication with the client’s biofield can be achieved by gentle muscle testing. When the body-consciousness wants to indicate a positive response, the muscles will resist firmly, under moderate pressure. If it wants to express a negative response, the muscles will become temporarily weak under the same pressure. This process reveals quite dramatic fluctuations in the auric field, in response to emotional changes.

By muscle testing directly on a friend you want to work with, or using a finger-testing technique, you can start your inquiry by identifying his age, to be sure it is current. People sometimes need to show you the biofield of a different time in their life, in order to resolve something from the past that still bothers them. Then you would work with him from that age. Ask what happened, and release the unresolved feelings by stroking the relevant meridians. When that is completed, ask if he can present his current age so that you can work with his current energy patterns.

To find out when an allergy was initiated, ask the body-consciousness to tell you the age when it first happened. Locate the age by asking whether it was before five, or before ten, or before twenty, etc. and narrow it down. When you come to the right age, the energy field will surge in response, and suddenly the test-muscle will be very strong.

Your friend might remember the event, and will want to talk about it. Listen to the feelings as he discusses what happened at that age. You can sense the predominant feeling, which will be variations of fear, anger, or grief, and locate the meridian that is carrying that feeling. Then trace the meridian pathway down to release it. As you trace the meridian, the amygdala will let go of the emotional association that is maintaining the allergy, and let go of the helplessness that has been locked up. Fresh strong vibrations will flow down all the way to the fingers and toes, as it releases.

You may feel tingling sensations as the emotional charge lifts off the meridian and enters your hands. Then test for the allergy at the end, to be sure it’s completed.
