Many diseases have underlying causes that are not immediately evident, e.g. an allergy or intolerance. They can often be treated without strong medication: there's no need to take a sledgehammer to crack a nut! Gentle therapy frequently produces the desired improvement or recovery.

The list of possible symptoms is long: breathing difficulties, conjunctivitis, rashes, fatigue, bloatedness, diarrhoea, constipation, bad breath, insomnia, anxiety, etc.

But tennis elbow doesn't always come from playing tennis, or a chronic runny nose from a cold. The underlying cause is often an intolerance or allergy. These can frequently be diagnosed by means of applied kinesiology.

The gentle treatment of allergies consists of combining the following complementary medicine techniques:

  • homoeopathy
  • vital supplements, such as minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acids
  • magnetic field therapy
  • acupuncture

This enables the body to deal more easily with the substances causing the allergic reaction, resulting in relief or complete disappearance of the symptoms. Allergies can also be at the root of 'problem child' behaviour.
