NAET was created in the 1980s by Dr. Devi Nambudripad. She suffered with many food, environmental and chemical allergies her whole life. She was so ill in her 20s that she could only eat broccoli and rice. At the time she was studying Chinese medicine in graduate school and had come home one day after receiving an acupuncture treatment. As she was cooking her rice, she decided to try a bite of a carrot, and immediately passed out on the kitchen floor. Coming to, she felt fantastic! She discovered that if you combine acupuncture stimulation (or acupressure without needles) with exposure to a specific allergen after a period of avoidance, you can eliminate that allergy! The actual technique has of course been refined since then.
How it works is you hold a specific allergen in your hand and we use muscle response testing to determine if your body has a weakness, or allergy, to that item. If you do, we treat it. The treatment consists of gentle palpation down your spine as you hold onto the allergen. We re-test the item then and it should be “strong.” In other words, we stimulate your nervous system – kind of like re-booting a computer – to change its response to the allergen. Instead of your body having an allergic, or “fight-or-flight” reaction to the substance, your body can have a “normal” response.
We have found NAET to be beneficial in treating pollen allergies, anaphylactic allergies, and mild food allergies.
What is NAET?
NAET stands for Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique, developed by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad, a pioneer of this practice. NAET is a combination of methods that uses most of what is already known from allopathic medical knowledge, chiropractic, kinesiology, acupuncture and nutrition. NAET is a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution that eliminates allergies of all types. It helps shift mental, emotional and physical imbalances.
What are Allergies?
From a holistic perspective, based on Oriental medical principles, allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity of a person to one or more substances that may be harmless to the majority of individuals. In the allergic person, the allergic substance is viewed by the brain as a threat to the body’s well being. Allergies are the result of energy imbalances in the body, leading to a diminished state of health in one or more organ systems.
Types of Allergies:
According to the NAET perspective, allergies include:
- Brain Fog
- Chronic Fatigue
- Dust & Dust Mites
- Eating Disorders
- Food Sensitivities
- Frequent Colds
- Frequent Infections
- Hay Fever
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
The allergy test is done by way of muscle testing (kinesiology). An energy vial of the substance is placed in your hand while you are muscle tested. A weak reaction will indicate that this substance needs to be treated through Acupressure and Acupuncture. On following appointment, the first allergen will be retested and strengthened if necessary. Afterwards the next item on the NAET Basic protocol is checked and, if found weak, it will be treated. NAET Protocol will be strictly followed. The purpose of this process is to improve a person’s immune system. There are 15 to 20 items in the basic protocol that can be tested.
By clearing foods from the basic protocol, we strengthen the immune system, improve digestion and absorption. This allows the body to get the necessary nutrients, which are essential for life.
Who benefits from NAET Treatment?
Anyone who suffers from allergies can benefit from NAET Treatment at any age no matter how long they have suffered from allergy symptoms.
Number of Treatments:
One allergen is cleared per visit. Each individual has a different genetic makeup and health history so the number of sessions required varies from one individual to another. For some people allergens are cleared immediately, however, for others it may take many sessions to accomplish the desired results.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Can Allergies cause real illness?
Allergies can definitely cause illness. Continuous contact with an allergen produces toxins in the body, and causes blockages in the meridians. If these blockages are not cleared, reactions to the allergens often produce symptoms that mimic other diseases.
