Hey everyone, I hope you’re well? It’s a busy time for me, I’ve been away for a while and so I’ve been thinking of something special to write about so that I can make it up you. So here goes…I hope you like it.
The NLP related articles I’ve written before have been very popular, so I’m going to talk a bit more on NLP this time too. The NLP allergy cure is a closely guarded technique among NLP Practitioners out there. I don’t know why some people protect information like this. I like to share and believe in OPEN information to all.
Huh? I can hear you asking, “Why is Shaun writing about allergies?” Well….if I told you that I’m one of the unlucky few people who suffer from Hayfever ALL YEAR ROUND, I need say no more.
After we look at what an allergy is, I’m going to outline an effective technique that will help those allergy sufferers out there. The technique does assume some prior NLP knowledge and practice; so I’ll make you a deal – if you don’t understand something or need some more explanation just drop a comment and I’ll get back to you…or you could always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (NO SPAMMERS PLEASE…I don’t need Viagra!).
What is an allergy?
If you have an allergy it’s your immune system reacting to a substance(s). Some people, for example count themself allergic to cats, dogs, peanuts…and the list goes on…I even had one client who claimed she was allergic to her husband! Now, it’s fair to say that we know these things aren’t poisonous. I’m no chemist, but I can categorically state that a peanut is not poisonous! But…if you have an allergy your immune system mistakenly treats a non-dangerous substance as a threat and reacts accordingly and that’s when you get the sniffs, runny nose, itchy eyes…and all the rest.
Quite simply, we can use NLP to re-educate the immune system. So here goes with a few tips. Be sure to read the footnote after this list…it’s important.
- First you must calibrate the allergic response because you need to know what you’re dealing with. Try to work out what triggers it and pay very close attention to the person’s physiology (breathing etc). I find it helps to ask the person, “How do you know you have an allergy?” Don’t accept weak answers, you need to drill into them and pick it apart to be clear on the allergic response.
- Be ready to anchor the response and as with all anchors you should test it at this point. This is a great party trick by the way…you only need these two steps to make someone sneeze, for example, just by triggering their anchor…not sure it’s ethically acceptable though.
- Now it’s time to re-educate your immune system. The good thing is that it’ll quickly learn how to function more effectively. Just re-frame the allergy as a mistake.
- Always check for ecology so that you know all is OK.
- So, now you’ll need to anchor a resource. This just means how the person would like to be in this situation. Don’t forget to make this resource stronger than the allergic response or it won’t stand up to the competition.
- Ask the person to see themself responding differently in these situations. Do this at least 3-4 different times. Some of you will know this as dissociation
- Then re associate. Carefully calibrate as you hold the resource anchor and notice the changes.
- Future pace.
- Test. Imagine the allergen and re calibrate to notice the changes in the physiology.
Shaun says: “Be a professional – When setting anchors make sure you always have a safety anchor. It’s safe and good practice.”
