Allergies and Trauma, Muscle Testing, Energy Medicine; Sandi Radomski is Our Guest This Week

Sandi-Radomski-is-on-the-Nutrition-Heretic-podcast-allergies-trauma.png

Sandi Radomski is on the Nutrition Heretic podcast Is Adrienne allergic to her husband?  Is it even possible?  In this episode, Sandi Radomski of Allergy Antidotes talks with Adrienne about the bizarre reactions she’s been having when her husband is in the state.

Sandi employs a different approach to allergy treatment which includes energy medicine.  Sandi shares her experience, insight and success stories in helping people to live well with allergies.

Sandi’s definition of allergies differs from the mainstream medical definition.  Her energetic definition of allergies is as “a mistake of the immune system based on a trauma.”

Sandi uses muscle testing to identify what is going on in a person’s body, and how it is misaligned with their mind.  She believes that allergies are learned responses to a trauma and as such, they may also be unlearned.

Sandi trains her clients to give their bodies new experiences so they can be calm in the presence of the substance that is causing the reactions.  This can be achieved through one of three methods:

  • Spinal Release – using acupressure points
  • Laser – Using a laser on reflex point on the ears
  • Ask and Receive – This is now Sandi’s main technique which helps her clients to access a higher state of consciousness to learn a new relationship with their bodies.

Sandi has been successful with helping people overcome their allergies, not only to substances, but also to money.  A metaphorical allergy to money and pushing it away is the topic of her next book, “Let Money In.”

Dangers of a Gluten Free Diet

Dangers of a Gluten Free Diet

Twenty years ago, I discovered the reality of food allergies and the fact that many people are allergic to the most mundane and commonplace of foods. One of the ones that I was most shocked about what the allergy to wheat (in the industry, we don't make a big to-do...

Day 30 - How Slow Can You Go?

So often we look past the most fundamental of changes to our diet. Instead we go for big, radical changes that are often not necessary. If you recall from earlier lessons, I spoke often of the anxiety we carry around with us when we eat. The speed at which we eat is also vitally important. Slowing down can make all the difference when it comes to allergies and cravings. Believe it or not, when we take time to savor our food and drink, many foods we thought we couldn’t live without suddenly become disgusting. Many allergies also disappeared as many allergies are due to food particles not being adequately digested and therefore the proteins permeating the gut wall. In today’s video, I go into more detail on the strategies you can use to slow down at mealtime.

As you move forward in tailoring your diet to your own needs, always remember to slow down and listen to what your body is actually asking for. Sometimes you may feel that it wants cake and sugar. However, remember that we have mostly been programmed to want that. Despite what some “experts” say, super-sweet foods are not what our bodies want intuitively. Our bodies want to feel well first and foremost, but listening to what others are telling you is the “right diet” only satisfies their egos, not your body. The one thing we do know however is that our bodies have been programmed to eat a wide variety of foods from a variety of sources and although a paleo, vegetarian or even GAPS diet may feel good to you now, it may need updating in the future. It is always good to leave a door open to allow your body to adapt to the many foods nature has provided.

This is why the wisdom of the ancients is so important to keep in mind. As in the yin-yang symbol, we must remember that where there is dark, bits of light peek in. And where there is light, there are also places where dark appear. Life is always in flux and the ability to adapt to its changes is important to our overall health for the long term.

Day 29 - How Should I Feed My Kids?

One of the biggest myths going around is that children prefer different foods from adults. This belief has gotten us into hot water with allergies and autism rapidly rising across the industrialized world. Go to any La Leche League or Holistic Moms meeting and you’ll witness many patterns across children who suffer from such afflictions. What you are eating during the Challenge is in fact perfect for feeding your children as well. Don’t be surprised if you find their overall health, immunity and behavior to change for the better while eating along with you. Check out details in the video.

If your kids started out like most kids in the West, they have a penchant for sweet not-foods. Don’t dispair! Kids are often much easier than adults to switch over to a new way of eating — especially if they know it’s good for them. Here’s what you do:

1. Get them in the kitchen. Kids love science and to see how things are made. Have them chop, slice and mix according to age and capability. This will pay off when they are older and need to fend for themselves.

2. Stop focusing on reducing fat and calories. Kids need nutrients to grow and maintain their mental and physical health. Cook for flavor and nutrition first. The rest comes naturally.

3. Make real food fun. Just because you’re serving leg of lamb doesn’t mean that dinner can’t be more fun than a pizza (which coincidentally could be made healthy very easily). Here’s an idea. Have an Arabian nights party and serve sides of hummus, cucumber salad and pita bread. Then watch a cool kids movie like Aladdin. Believe me. It works!

Day 16 - The Blessing Nobody Wants

It’s a diagnosis that everybody dreads. Most of us choose to live in denial about it or ignore it, often until it is too late to correct. Many others accept it and turn it into a religion — a way of segregating themselves from the rest of society. They set out on a mission to blame our ancestors for eating instinctually. However, this is one of the greatest blessings that we can experience. Instead of living in fear trying to patch up parts of our bodies that are faltering, wouldn’t it be nice to be blessed with an indicator that we should change course and do something we aren’t currently doing so that we can always possess the power to heal ourselves?
