For allergy sufferers, nice things become torture - a walk in nature, cuddling with the beloved cat or enjoying delicious strawberries can cause unpleasant and distressing symptoms (watery eyes, swollen mucous membranes, skin rashes, shortness of breath and much more).
Allergic diseases have increased in recent decades and are still on the rise. The most common allergic diseases include pollen, animal hair, house dust, insect venom and food allergies.
Allergies can be caused by
Changes in our environment (environmental pollution due to toxic substances)
ongoing family conflicts
emotional stress (e.g. serious illness or loss of close relatives, separation/divorce)
How I can help:
It is scientifically proven that the immune system can be influenced via mental approaches. This is where EMDR allergy treatment comes in, which uses certain interventions to stimulate the immune system to "relearn" and no longer classify the allergy-causing substance as harmful. Additionally, resolving old traumas through EMDR can support the healing process. This is because traumatic experiences cause changes in the immune system and make it more sensitive - the body can no longer distinguish what is dangerous in the environment and what is not. Experience shows that EMDR treatment can reduce the burden of allergies, as well as other autoimmune diseases.
