Emily's Insights - Allergies

This month Empowering You Kinesiology is focusing on Allergies

Hello Winter!

For some this time of year is also hello to itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing and sinuses so clogged your face feels like it might just explode.


These annoying immune responses can be caused by an innumerable number of allergens and sometimes we can go a bit crazy trying to figure out what is upsetting your body. If you do find out what it is for you chances are the thing tips your body over the edge is a tree that blooms so there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.

Did you know that along with itchy eyes, runny noses, sneezing and sinusitis symptoms like bloating, diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, brain fog, fatigue, itchy skin - eczema, psoriasis, and many other body complaints are also being caused by allergens in your body?
Your immune system is constantly working to protect you from outside contaminates, things you put in your body, things you put on your body, things you breath and even things you think. This system works tirelessly for your good but eventually it will reach a burn out point or a stress crisis and you will get a symptom. At this point it is trying to communicate with you that there is a problem that needs your attention. The problem is finding out the who, what, when, where and how of the matter. This is where Kinesiology can be an absolute saviour. Kinesiology is an incredible tool which allows us to use your muscles to communicate with your body. We can ask the who, what, when, where questions and narrow down your immune system stressor. We then can use that information and your muscles to discover exactly how your body needs support. Do you need to change something you are putting on or in your body? Do you need to adapt your environment or thoughts? Do you need some supplementation to get your body back to homeostasis? Using Kinesiology we can test our way through the fog and symptoms to define what YOUR body needs! Many of us are carrying around low grade viruses in our bodies that keep our poor immune systems at work 24/7 year after year and eventually you get a symptom. How many of you have experienced a symptom like bloating so you try to change your diet because everyone says gluten causes bloating and it helps to a certain degree but doesn’t completely resolve your symptom so you either give up and go back to your old eating habits and try supplements to alleviate your problem this also reduces your symptoms but not completely. This process goes on and on….

Kinesiology can help you discover that your body isn’t tolerating gluten at the moment due to a virus that needs to be dealt with so your immune system can catch a breath.

Allergy symptoms are your body communicating with you come in for a session and let’s discover what the message is.

Pizza Base Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ cups almond meal
  • 1 cup arrowroot and tapioca flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup nut milk of your choice
  • ½ tsp garlic powder (optional)
  • ½ tsp onion powder (optional)

To make the pizza base or bases, preheat oven to 1800C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper. I use 2 round 12” pizza trays with holes in the bottom.

Sift dry ingredients together into a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, oil and nut milk.

Fold the egg mixture into the dry ingredients a bit at a time and mix thoroughly to form a smooth, thick dough.

Spoon ½ the dough onto each of the baking trays. Using a spatula spread the dough out in a round shape to a thickness of 5mm. You can make the pizza bases as big or as small as you like, just adjust the amount of dough you use for each size.

Bake for 5 – 10 mins until the pizza base is cooked through and lightly browned.

Remove from oven and set aside while preparing the toppings.

Increase the oven to 220 oC.

Pizza Sauce Ingredients:

  • 400g chopped tinned or fresh tomatoes
  • 1tbsp pf mixed herbs eg parsley, oregano, basil
  • ½ tsp Himalayan salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Suggested toppings: sliced zucchinis, sliced mushrooms, chopped capsicum, chopped bacon, chopped onion, pitted olives.

Cashew cheese, parmesan cashew cheese or nutritional yeast seasoning

Salt and pepper

Putting it all together:

Spread pizza sauce over bases, scatter over vegetables and bacon in order of list above ending with olives. Dollop the cashew cheese on top, then sprinkle with parmesan cashew cheese or nutritional yeast, season with salt and pepper.

Return to the oven and cook for a further 10-20 mins or until golden and crisp.

"After more than 35 Years of emotional and physical heartache which has manifested into years of ill health, I can finally say I AM FREE.. WOW!! Even writing that makes me smile. Obviously I still need medical treatment, but to have that clarity is so over whelming. I am crying with joy now not sadness and frustration."

Donna, 2013
