An allergy is an inappropriate response by the body's immune system to a substance that is not normally harmful (Balch 2006).   Food Allergies occurs when a person's immune system generates an antibody response to the ingested food (Balch 2006).   In 2012, 5.6% or 4.1 million children reported food allergies in the past 12 months (Bloom, Cohen & Freeman 2011).  In order to see what appropriate treatment is helpful for a person who has food allergies it is important to start using different food allergies testing methods.  The different food allergy testing methods are the elimination/challenge, skin prick testing, atopy patch test, radioallergosorbent testing, enzyme-link immunosorbent assay, third generation ELISA Assays microarray chip technology and Energetic Methods (Pizzorno & Murray 2013).  There are other testing methods that have been used for food sensitivity testing and treatment but systematic scientific studies have either not been done to verify...

    Psychoneuroimmunology is a study that investigates the interactions between behavior and the immune system, mediated by the endocrine and nervous systems (Ziemssen & Kern 2007).  Psychoneuroimmunology main interests are the interactions between the nervous and immune systems and the relationships between mental processes and health. Psychoneuroimmunology studies the connections or links between our "state" of mind and our "state" of health (Dohms 2016).   Psychoneuroimmunology research demonstrates that emotions influence immunological functioning and that too much stress has a negative impact on the functioning of the body’s immune system. Recent research suggests that the immune system can be enhanced or suppressed by external stimuli and that the brain reacts to external stimuli at an
unconscious level (Malkin, 2003). 

    Essential oils have been shown to have significant effects on mood states and these effects are believed to arise from stimulation of the...

Back to school again in the South, Midwest and West Coast.  My, how time goes by so quickly.  This is the season where a lot of our darling children will come home for a long day of school screaming  “ Mom!” “What’s for dinner?”  or “Mom, I am hungry!”  “What do we have to eat!”   If you do not have dinner ready now you can give them a healthy snack that will tie them over until dinner time.  Pick snacks that taste good, help them to look and feel great.

Make sure that you do not give too much of a snack that your child will not have enough to eat for dinner.  But, if your child is doing something active like playing a sport, taking a dance class, biking or running around with your friends, it’s OK to fuel up with a bigger snack.

Your child can eat lunch at noon and dinner’s at 6:00, a snack right after school–say at about 3:00–is just right. They will get some fuel to do homework or to get outside and play.

 You can pack a great snack in your kid’s back...
