SET-DB™ practitioners know from reading the Practitioner Manual and from practice that people can be sensitive, perhaps even allergic, to seemingly bizarre things that most people would think impossible.
There are three main types of allergy/sensitivity patients: 1) Those who present with a good idea about what bothers them, usually because symptoms occur immediately after exposure. 2) Those who have a good idea about what they’re sensitive to, but aren’t sure. 3) Those who know their symptoms well enough but are clueless about the cause(s).
Clearing sensitivities for the first group should be relative straight forward; there’s rarely a need for searching and digging. The second group will need some thorough questioning and probing with your ZYTO. The last group will need your best detective work if they’re to find relief.
When working with patients from groups 2 and 3, you might want to keep in mind the following examples of “odd” sensitivities:
When cellphones started becoming popular, at least in my realm, in the mid-1990s, I thought they were dumb and swore I would never get one. There were times I wanted to be out of reach, of everyone, and couldn’t abide the thought that anyone with my number could call at any time. I finally gave in in 1998 and got a Nokia.
These days 42% of kids have a cellphone by age 10. By age 12 that number grows to 71%. By 14, 91%. (I will not attempt to comment on the wisdom of giving things like smartphones with access to the internet to young children, but instead will only discuss how it relates to allergies and sensitivities.)
Electronics like cellphones and tablets contain metals, like nickel, that often cause problems, typically rashes (contact dermatitis). Symptoms of contact dermatitis usually occur at or near the point of contact: the hand, wrist, or arm. Also consider anatomical areas where the device might be housed like the buttocks (back pocket) and hip (front pocket).
In addition to clearing for nickel or other metals, you may need to clear for the device itself. Be sure to have the patient observe the 4-hour avoidance period even though they might protest they can’t live without the device that long.
Obviously one can be sensitive to one or more of the ingredients in pancake mix, either commercial or home-made, but what if you’ve cleared those categories and your patient continues to complain of symptoms when/after having some pancakes?
As odd as it sounds foods with dry, powdery ingredients, including pancake mix, can become contaminated with dust mites. Well, and of course also dust mite fecal matter. (If that’s not enough to get you to make your own pancakes out of fresh ingredients, I don’t know what will.)
Because sensitivities to grains and their components, like gluten, gliadin, peptides, and enzymes involved in their digestion, have become such a big problem in the last 20 or so years, the Grains, Gluten, and Wheat Digestion BioSurveys should be done first in these cases.
If the sensitivity reaction isn’t remedied, be sure to ask (if you haven’t already) about the mix. Specifically how long has it be open in the cupboard or pantry? Then check dust mites; you might as well run the BioSurvey and check all dust samples. (It’s likely “dust mites” sample include mite skin and fecal samples, but is not know for sure.)
While semen sensitivity is considered rare, you’ll be someone’s personal hero if you’re savvy enough to recognize and clear it. You could just save a marriage or relationship.
In most cases symptoms of semen sensitivity are localized to the area of contact, a sort of contact dermatitis. Most women with vaginal symptoms will likely think they have a yeast infection, which should be rule out, of course. But if it keeps happening, perhaps a semen sensitivity should be considered.
ZYTO’s software contains one semen sample: “NT - Semen (Environmental Test Kits)”. The “NT” virtual items come from the NAET library included with ZYTO’s software. I would clear this first.
If clearing the NT sample doesn’t get rid of the problem, an actual sample would need to be collected and brought in for testing with your Elite. (Selects can’t do this.) If necessary, the clearing should be done on that visit, while the actual sample is available. Hopefully the sample was brought in in a discrete package. If not, consider having them spend their 15-minute avoidance time somewhere private.
We’ll go over some more odd sensitivities next time.
