NAET Allergy Therapy

NAET stands for Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques. Developed by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in November of 1983, NAET provides a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to eliminate allergies. NAET utilizes a blend of selective energy balancing combined with testing and treatment procedures from Oriental, allopathic, chiropractic, nutritional and kinesiological disciplines of medicine. Dr. Nambudripad has trained over 5,000 practitioners worldwide to administer NAET.

Allergies as a Cause of Your Illness

Conventional medicine describes an allergy as an over-reaction by the immune system to a harmless substance. Oriental medicine sees an allergy as a disruption in the flow of Qi (life-force energy) within the meridians (energy pathways) that creates imbalance. The resulting energy blockage interferes with communication via the nervous system between the brain and outlying tissues. This miscommunication can begin a chain of events that develops into an allergic response. Unchecked energy imbalances in the body which lead to allergies will produce a diminished state of health in one or more organ systems.

Mild allergic reactions may cause annoying symptoms, but severe allergic reactions can produce toxins in the body that mimic symptoms of poisoning. An extreme example of this is the life threatening reactions some have to bee stings or peanut consumption. Allergic reactions are frequently mistaken for a variety of illnesses and are not merely limited to the typical signs we all attribute to them such as sneezing, itchy, and watery eyes. Continuous or prolonged contact with an allergen can trigger the immune system to fight the allergen as if it were a virus or other pathogen. This prolonged stress upon the immune system can produce symptoms of almost any health condition from physical aches and pains to mental problems such as depression, brain fog and fatigue.

Conventional diagnosis often does not find the root cause of the disease, resulting in treatments that at best do little or nothing and at worst may further complicate the condition. Until recently those fortunate enough to discover that an allergic response was the real cause of their illness could only attempt avoidance of the allergen, which is often not possible or practical. Today, many have found a permanent solution to allergies with NAET.

How NAET Works

During the initial appointment the client receives the first treatment after undergoing both a diagnostic interview and a series of muscle response tests to common substances. Basic nutritional allergies are treated in a specific order then other allergies are addressed in an order best suited to the client's needs.

NAET treatments focus upon clearing (treating) one allergy at a time. After the treatment, the client must completely avoid the substance for an "avoidance period" that lasts on average twenty-five hours. At the next appointment muscle response tests confirm the success or failure of the treatment. If successful, the client receives treatment for the next allergen. A client with severe allergic reactions or an inability to avoid a substance (such as dust or vital medications) may require multiple treatments to clear an allergy.

Once an allergy clears, a resolution period begins. The body makes adjustments in the meridians to resolve the energy blockages. During the resolution period the client may still experience allergic symptoms, but over time they diminish and eventually vanish. The length of the resolution period varies depending on the severity of the blockage; some last for days, others last for years. When this period ends, the allergy ceases to exist. As the body resolves more and more blockages it brings the body closer and closer to an improved state of health.
