My sixth NAET treatment was for digestive enzymes or, in NAET parlance, “Base”. I was pretty excited about this treatment because I’ve had an enzyme deficiency for a very long time. I was also a little skeptical, I must say. It was hard for me to understand how my body could just begin to produce enzymes again after being unable to for so long. But, I decided to trust the process and just see what might happen.
We began the session with the usual: muscle testing to see if I cleared the last treatment for sugar, and I did. As a result, I should be able to eat some things that contain sugar, but since this is still fairly early on in the treatment process, I decided to be safe and try only a few cooked apples. I was able to eat these with, what seemed to be, no problems, but I continue to be very judicious about how many of these I eat and how often I eat them.
As the session continued, we discussed the supplements I would have to avoid for this digestive enzyme treatment. Obviously, I would have to stay away from digestive enzymes, but, unfortunately, my hydrochloric acid supplement also has enzymes in it, so I would have to avoid that as well. We decided that apple cider vinegar could be used instead if I had problems.
As for food, I would need to avoid eggs, vegetables, beans and dairy products. This left me with a couple of days of eating basically meat, quinoa, and the special bread I make. I joked as I was going through this that I was on a “brown” diet because everything on my plate was brown. Other than the monochrome nature of the food, the diet wasn’t particularly hard to follow and I was able to stay on the majority of my supplements, so that really wasn’t a problem either.
The remainder of the treatment was as before: I was tested for digestive enzymes and found to be weak. This was then followed by spinal “massage” with breathing, which was followed by energy work, and that was followed by acupuncture. My practitioner then retested for the enzymes and I tested strong.
My practitioner also tested to see if we could treat for rice and potatoes at the next session in order to prepare me for the vitamin B treatment coming up. The vitamin B treatment is really challenging as there is very little that you can eat, since almost everything contains vitamin B. Hence, the need to clear my system of any issues it might have with rice and potatoes (and I have a history of problems with both).
My avoidance period was, once again, calculated at 50 hours. At the end of the avoidance period, I decided not to take anymore enzymes and I have been off of them ever since.
I was able to eliminate both of my digestive enzyme supplements with this one treatment.
I continue to be astounded at the changes I am experiencing with these treatments. This is much more improvement than I have had with any other approach I have tried. So exciting!
To continued healing,
