How do I begin treatments at Schwarz Wellness Center?
The first step to coming into SWC is scheduling an Initial Consultation appointment by calling our office at 909.793.7900. Your Initial Consultation appointment will be approximately 1 – 1.5 hours and includes: a Zyto© scan (this is a non-invasive technique that measures your body’s response to over 450 different stimuli to determine if your food or environment is causing stress to your body). We will discuss your health history, health concerns, and go over your health goals. Finally, you will receive your first treatment (this is tailored to the individual, and therefore may not be the same for everyone). For more information regarding the Initial Consultation please see the Programs & Services page.
Can I begin treatments without having an initial consultation?
Unfortunately, no. Since no two people are the same, we desire to treat every client with personalized service. The purpose of the Initial Consultation is to provide us with all the information we need to serve you as best we can as well as to help you get the most out of your treatment at SWC.

What is NAET?
NAET is a safe and effective technique that works to detect and eliminate all types of allergies. NAET combines kinesiology (muscle response testing), chiropractic, and acupressure to eradicate allergic reactions by reprogramming the nervous system’s response to specific stimuli. Our brains have a natural built-in subconscious function controlling the immune system, which has the potential to keep us allergy free. This technique consciously focuses the brain on a single allergen while applying acupressure, which in a sense resets the body’s over-reaction towards the allergen (which could have been inherited, brought on by a weakened immune system, or associated due to a negative emotional experience). It can then retrain the body stop reacting negatively to substances, and thus eliminates the allergen. NAET is non-invasive, painless and safe for all ages from newborns to the elderly.
How does NAET work?
Research has shown that when major allergies are eliminated, the immune system is strengthened and the body resumes normal healing and homeostasis. The basic idea is that we have cellular memory. Our allergies are actually physical manifestations of a memory the body has of being sensitive to something. When we neutralize that memory, per se, we actually clear an allergy. By stimulating the spinal nerves and other specific acupuncture points, in the presence of an allergen, we are desensitizing our bodies and mind to the present allergen. This technique was first discovered by Devi Nambudripad Ph.D., M.D., D.C., L.Ac. thus giving it the name, NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique).
What allergens do you address first?
Because the immune system has been shown to strengthen after being treated for common substances (referred to as the “Basic 15”), they are addressed first. A few of these substances are: egg mix, calcium, vitamin C, B complex vitamins, sugar, vitamin A, iron, salt, minerals, and hormones.
Do you address allergens in any particular order?
Yes, the Basic 15 are treated first. Many other allergies subside with the treatment of these 15. Therefore, it is after the treatment of these strengthening substances that more severe allergies are addressed. Often times the body is not able to handle the treatment of severe allergies before getting an overall immune boost by the basic 15.
How many visits does it take to go through the basic items?
This varies patient to patient depending on the severity of the allergies. It can take as few as 15 or more than 40. On average, it usually takes around 20 treatments, as some may need to be done more than once, again, just depending on the severity of the allergy. Treatments can take place as often as twice a day, or as infrequently as once a month, depending on how fast you want to see results and your body’s ability to handle the treatments.
How many allergens do you address in each visit?
NAET allows one allergen per treatment to be addressed. If the allergens are from the same nutritional family such as yogurt, yeast, and whey, they can be treated together. Salt and chloride are another example as they too can be treated together. It is important to avoid the treated substance(s) for a minimum of 25 hours after the treatment. That includes avoiding eating, touching or coming within 5 feet of the treated substance.
Do you use acupuncture or acupressure?
At SWC acupressure is used for NAET, however some practitioners do use acupuncture. Both methods are equally effective.
Do you recommend vitamins, supplements, or herbs?
Only after the allergies have been cleared, so the body can actually assimilate them into the system. People who have a lot of vitamin and nutritional deficiencies basically have these problems because they have been unable to assimilate these vitamins and basic nutrients into their bodies because of their sensitivities to these items. Once the body is desensitized, not only are they able to get the good from food, they are also no longer having adverse reactions to foods and the environment. The body is now in harmony.
Do you also treat sensitivities and intolerances?
Yes. SWC has successfully treated many with sensitivities and intolerances. One example would be wheat intolerance, allowing for the consumption of wheat with no negative reactions.
Do you treat chemical sensitivities?
Yes, however once a person completes the basic 15 treatments, some of the chemical sensitivities may have resolved.
Does SWC offer any weight loss programs?
Yes. We offer the homeopathic HCG weight loss program developed by Dr. Simeons. This program is safe, gentle, and an effective way to lose weight. is not only effective, it’s also safe and gentle. Our program monitors your weight loss on a weekly basis to make sure you are actually losing fat and not muscle.
What is Homeopathic HCG?
HCG is human chorionic gonadotropin. This is a naturally occurring substance in the body. We use the homeopathic version, which means there are no injections and no needles. It is very safe, gentle and effective. This weight loss system has been around since the 1950s and uses real food instead of prepackaged processed foods.
How much weight can I expect to lose on HCG?
Women average ½ to 1 pound a day and men average 1 to 3 pounds per day.
