Default EMDR and Allergies

Hi. Was wondering if anyone here has successfully used EMDR to treat allergies. Haven't seen anything like that in the literature, but would it be possible?

Default Re: EMDR and Allergies

I know Katie O'Shea has theorized that allergies are sometimes related to early trauma/attachment/developmental issues. She has developed a very clever protocol to clear early trauma even in the absence of explicit memory. It is a several step process that contains, strengthens, holds the person as they dip back into early felt sense of injury, disappointment, etc. She and I presented her protocol in Dallas last September at EMDRIA.

She believes on the base of anecdotal case material that some cases of allergies can be improved with clearing early material.
