The two people who came up with the Jaffe-Mellor Technique (JMT) are in St Petersburg! Here's their site: http://jmttechnique.com/
http://jmttechnique.com/index_files/...ontact_us.html

FYI, the first email link on that contact page didn't work for me; I'd call them, if I were you. Since you're kinda close to their area.

It also looks like there's an AAT practitioner in Jacksonville:

I know! My sister used to live in Tampa, so I was excited when I saw your location. : I think the JMT stuff is truly amazing. If you call them, please come back and post here and let me know what you find out... okay? Promise?

I'm visualizing miraculous healing for you and Ella.

ETA: I was just looking on the AAT website and they list someone in Mass; a Dr Jackson in West Roxbury. Here's the link: http://advancedallergyelimination.com/locations_us.html
Thanks for the info. I'm actuallly pretty close to NH. Do you know where in NH the other AAT person is? It might be closer than W. Roxbury.

Chlobo, it's Dr. Holly Ruocco in Salem, NH -- you can find her contact info on the AAT website (links above). I know someone on the Avoiding Corn board saw her and is greatly improved.

I didn't get a chance to update this thread before going on vacation (we just returned home yesterday). The week before we left, I saw my doctor every day and had treatments as follows:

Monday (#12)--Treated for reactions against my own blood (autoimmune process) and stimulated the G.I. tract

Tuesday (#13)--Fish mix, Shellfish mix, Meat mix (Beef, Lamb, Pork), Fruit mix (Apple, Peach, Nectarine, Grapes), and Veggie mix (Broccoli, Cauliflower, Squash, Green Beans).

Wednesday (#14)--All amino acids (two mixes), Bases, Acids, Vinegars

Thursday (#15)--Fascia energy, muscle energy (autoimmune process)

Friday (#16)--Coal Tar, Asphalt, Diesel Fuel, Crude Oil, Car Exhaust (all things I would be exposed to while on the road for two days, driving to Florida.)

All the food stuff on vacation went really well! Basically I ate anything and everything I wanted without reactions. We ate out at restaurants twice, ordered pizza and other take-out several times, went out for ice cream, ate junk food on the road... no foods bothered me. I could go anywhere in public without getting sick from fumes/smells. This was SO much different than last year, when I was getting sick daily from other people's fumes at the pool and could only use one kind of sunscreen.

Last year on vacation, my youngest DD had hives every day from sun exposure. I had her treated for radiation before we left, and this year--no reaction! She did absolutely great this year, really had the best vacation ever. Could eat anything she wanted, too, without reactions.

The only downside to vacation was that I picked up some kind of respiratory infection on the way to Florida, and had a fever for several days after we got there. So I spent a few days in bed, and had some coughing/congestion for the rest of the time.

Now that vacation is done, I will probably continue seeing my doctor once a week until we get everything else taken care of. I still have a few foods that I think cause minor reactions that we couldn't get to before vacation, and I want her help with some hormonal imbalance issues too.

This sounds really great. Congratulations. I hope things continue to improve for you.

WildIris,

Thanks so much for posting your experience while going through these allergy treatments. It makes me want to look for someone decent down here, again. I live in the NW Atlanta area - okay, well outside of it. Anyway, we used to do NAET treatments and drive 35 minutes over to Alpharetta to see an ND who gave them. Desipte spending a couple grand with her over the course of a year, we never ever got to the allergens that really mattered to us. Plus, she kept raising her rates starting at $30 per treatment to over $100 during the course of that year. I was so frustrated with her and with NAET, I decided to never visit anyone else who did it, either.

I did read heavily on NAET and read Dr. Nambudripad's book on the subject. I understood the value of having certain baseline allergens treated, but every time we reached a certain level, our ND kept adding something else to be treated BEFORE we treated the allergens we really needed to be treated. : That was how she got so much money from us, and we have nothing to show for it. I and both my boys still have every single allergy we wanted eliminated in the first place!

I've studied EFT heavily and really like the technique. I haven't yet looked closely at JMT. (Though I tried to email them last night b/c the "find a practitioner" page is down on their site, and the email to their domain address was returned. I have emailed the yahoo address they have listed. Hope it goes through.)

Anyway, thanks again for your posts. The fact that you were able to get so much relief in far fewer practitioner visits (and probably a lot less money) than we spent gives me hope that we can get these things handled and not have to spend so much money on our groceries b/c we're all allergic to different things.

Peace,
Elizabeth

Orapunzel/Elizabeth, sorry it took me so long to reply. I hadn't checked the thread for awhile... I realized I wasn't even subscribed to my own thread, oops. But I have fixed that now.

Wow, I am really : at your former practitioner too! I can't believe you spent so much time and money and nothing to show for it. And the constant raising of rates... whoa, I would be outraged. Were you seeing improvements initially but then they didn't last? Why did you keep going if you weren't seeing improvements, if you don't mind me asking? If I had an experience like yours, I wouldn't think very highly of NAET, I'm sure.

I don't know what's up with the JMT website; I emailed them but never heard back. I love their technique--too bad they're not maintaining their website very well so more people can get information on qualified practitioners. I asked my doctor what the JMT founders were like in person... she said "brilliant but eccentric." :

If you ever pursue treatments of some kind again, look into AAT too. There were quite a few people on the corn allergy forum (Delphi) having success with AAT. I think if I had to choice between plain NAET and AAT, I would choose the AAT... but the way my doctor does it, with the mix of NAET + JMT works equally well, I think. Plus being local and having low prices, I can't beat that. But if I wasn't doing this, I would do the AAT.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

Another update: Things are going very well. I've had seven more treatments since the last time I posted. Only one was for foods (two nut mixes, bean mix, peppers mix). The rest were a combination of hormone-balancing treatments and autoimmune-related treatments. Oh, and also some dental related stuff (mercury, amalgams, and strep murans--bacteria) before a dentist appointment.

Overall I feel really good most of the time. Occasionally I will notice a very minor reaction to something, but NOTHING like before. Now a reaction might just be a brief headache, or noticing that my ears are a little itchy, and it passes quickly. When that happens I try to narrow down what may have caused it and get treated for that substance at the next appointment. My body feels much stronger overall, so when I do have a reaction, it doesn't knock me flat for a few days like it used to.

I eat almost anything I want now. I still MOSTLY eat a basic whole foods, lower-carb, lower-sugar diet, because I feel healthiest that way... but it is nice to be able to grab a burger and fries somewhere if I want it, or go out for ice cream with the kids, or order takeout Korean/Chinese food now and then. It just makes life so much easier.

Aside from food freedom, being able to GO PLACES without getting sick from smells/fumes, that is the best benefit I think. I love being able to be social again. Last night we went to an ice cream place with the kids for a school fundraiser, and I was remembering a year prior when my youngest DD had a Girl Scout function there and I had to leave her at the door... couldn't even go inside because the fumes made me so sick. Last night I not only went inside, but ate the ice cream with everyone else. (It was too sweet, lol).

I still have reactions to certain very strong fragrances / perfumes. Stores like Bed Bath & Beyond still bother me if I stay a long time, but I used to not be able to go in them at all. Also still bothered by plastics, especially "new plastic" smells and solvents, stuff like that. So those types of things are on the list for future treatments ... plus a few food categories. But autoimmune stuff is priority at the moment.

I spoke to the JMT woman on the phone. They are no longer doing referrals. I'm not sure why they don't get rid of that part of the website, rather than having it seem broken. She said b/c so many people have gone through the program they have no idea who is good and who is not. So they won't refer.

FWIW, I took DS for AAT. We've had about 5 treatments and I haven't really seen any difference yet. We only have one or two things left to treat.

Chlobo, I'm surprised to hear this. Most people I've heard from say they're getting good results with AAT. What does your AAT doc say about not seeing any difference in your son yet?
post #77 of 91
Well she hasn't said anything. At the beginning she did say it might take a bit to see results. But I would have thought something might change by now.

Our issues weren't as obvious as yours. Ours are sleep & growth related so its harder to have a "wow" moment over those.

If I hadn't read up so much on NAET (and all the success stories I found) prior to going to her, I would have dropped her like a hot potato right off. My sons have such tremendous allergies that I was desperate, and that's what kept me going b/c I figured at *some* point we'd start to see those changes. Since we never got to the allergens that really mattered to us, we never did. Except for me on one count - temporarily. I had the kidney treatment not long before we quit going. Prior to that, I had blood in my urine that I could see every day. Some days, it was quite a lot, and other days not so much. (This was from my uric acid kidney stones. Eating cherries helped reduce the blood concentration but did not eliminate it.) Four days after that kidney treatment, the blood disappeared - at least to my eyes. It stayed away in this fashion for 3 years and then came back...a little. I have to watch it and can't drink hardly any coffee or tea (and I LOVE tea!) or eat too many beans (that includes chocolate). If I have too much, my kidneys start to hurt, and the blood shows up again.

Most days, though, you can't see it. The doc office tells me that they can still spin my sample down and get "large blood" but it is not obvious to the naked eye.

The last few weeks, I think I have developed a new allergy b/c of the way my body is reacting when I eat that item (oats). So, I really need to find a good practitioner of some sort. I looked up where AAT practitioners are close to me. The nearest one is about 2 hours away.

How do AAT do their treatments - does anyone know? Can you describe it to me? Do they treat one allergen at a time, or can they do them in groups of several items at once?

Also, this is a question I'm posing to anyone reading this thread and getting energy allergy treatments: I wonder how much folks are paying for allergy treatments from the various kinds of practices?

I checked out a different type of practitioner that uses "Allergy Antidotes" and Seemorg... and they were charging $150 - per allergen! OMG, at those rates we'd have to win the lottery to get our allergies relieved.

Yet, I know some practitioners treat multiple allergens per visit. This would be ideal to find someone like this...and who doesn't charge an arm and a leg, too.

I live NW of the Atlanta area in Georgia, and you'd think it would be easy to find someone who fits the bill in this regards but it is (surprisingly) not.

One of these days... ! I am still holding out hope - especially when I read success stories like yours, WildIris!

ITMT, I'm trying to be patient.

This is how my practitioner does them:

They attached some kind of bracelet to your wrist or leg. It is attached to a computer. The computer has the lists of allergens. They then send some kind of "signal" that represents the allergen to the bracelet. While doing that they muscle test you on your arm. This is while you are laying down. They go through a while list of substances. Some substances have "components". This is your list of allergens. Like NAET there are some things they have to treat before others. I think there are 5 of them and they include things that are in everything - food chemicals, certain omnipresent foods. They treat one group per treatment. YOu can't have the substance for 2 hours after treatment.

I think I only had 1 substance that "had" to be treated and then I was allowed to choose what I wanted treated.

During a treatment you wear the bracelet. Once they check to make sure you need the treatment for that substance they use a chiropractor tool on your back. It's supposed to reset things. then they check to see if it worked. Then they check any subcomponents. For example, with milk there is breast milk, cow's milk, goat milk. And then there are certain components of the milk. If you are sensitive to a component, they treat that.

The final step is that they test your organs to see if they are affected. If they are affected by that substance, they treat it.
