Hormone Allergies

Hormone Allergies by Jane Thurnell-Read

When I worked regularly as a practitioner I often came across people who tested (using health kinesiology) as allergic to their own hormones. Whenever I tried to discuss this with scientific friends their eyes would glaze over, and I could see that they were thinking: “Here she goes again, on another crackpot idea!”

So it was particularly gratifying to come across a paper in a scientific journal (American Journal Of Reproductive Immunology, April 2006) with the title ‘Hormone Allergy’, The authors, Russell R.Roby et al, looked at IgG, IgM and IgE antibodies to progesterone and estrogen in the blood of 288 healthy control subjects, and 270 patients who showed changes in symptoms (such as asthma, migraine, dermatitis and pain) with changes in the menstrual cycle.

A significant number of patients show high levels of IgG, IgM and IgE antibodies to progesterone and estrogen compared with the healthy control group. Until now it had been thought that hormones were too small to trigger an allergic response, but the researchers write that after binding to human tissue proteins, such as albumin or globulin, these hormones may act as antigens.

The authors conclude by saying:


“This leads to the possibility of treating a wide variety of disorders by determining hormone allergy and initiating desensitization. Two obvious applications for determination and treatment of hormone allergies are pre-menstrual asthma and menstrual migraines.”


The researchers are looking for mainstream medical solutions to this problem, but using the Energy Mismatch technique from health kinesiology and the hormone and body biochemical test kits we sell, there’s a cheap, fast low-tech solution available already.
