How was NAET developed...
NAET was developed by Dr.
Devi S. Nambudripad, a California acupuncturist, chiropractor, and a kinesiologist, in an attempt to
relieve herself of severe allergic symptoms suffered since her birth in Kerala, South India.
While working on her Ph.D. at
Samra University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, she observed that people presenting allergic symptoms
often responded favorably to acupuncture or acupressure treatment.
After recognition of the systemic relationship between contact with an allergen
and the resulting neuro-physiological effects produced in the body, she began to discover the key to the mystery of
how the brain may be reprogrammed in its response to what it once took to be harmful or toxic.
Her own experience and
personal interest led her to develop the method later referred to collectively as NAET, and to specialize
exclusively in the diagnosis
and treatment of allergies.
She has trained more than five thousand medical practitioners from all over the world (chiropractors,
acupuncturists, allopathic medical doctors, dentists, doctors
of osteopathy, doctors of veterinary medicine are some among the group).
To date, thousands of patients successfully have been treated, with amazing results.
From a Western medical perspective, allergy is an overreaction by the immune system. In NAET, allergies are viewed
from a holistic perspective, based on Oriental Medical principles.
An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity of one person to one or more substances that may be harmless to
the majority of individuals.
In the allergic person, the allergic substance (known as an allergen), is viewed by the brain as a threat to the
Therefore, for our purposes, an allergy is defined in terms of what a substance does to the energy flow in the
Allergies are the result of energy imbalances in the body, leading to a diminished state of health in one or more
When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called meridians. Thought about
in another way, it disrupts the normal flow of energy through the body's electrical circuits.
This energy blockage causes interference in communication between the brain and body via the nervous system. This
blocked energy flow is the first step in a chain of events which can develop into an allergic response.
How do I find and treat my
Conventional Western medicine has several methods for testing allergies.
These include the "Intra-dermal test," "Patch test," "Scratch test," and various blood tests such as the "RAST
test" and the "ELISA test."
These can identify dozens of allergens from one test or from one blood sample.
The standard treatment is drug therapy using either antihistamines or steroids to control allergic symptoms.
Unfortunately, this does not correct the underlying problem, and often the allergy sufferer experiences serious
long term side effects.
The most effective treatment option until now has been complete avoidance of the offending allergen(s).
This can be difficult and in some cases impossible. Now, however, there is an alternative… NAET, Nambudripad's
Allergy Elimination Techniques.
Traditional allergy testing and
treatments are painful and expensive. Is there a
way I can
get rid of my
Yes. By testing and treating with the Nambudripad's Testing Techniques.
This revolutionary approach is particularly relevant for dealing with allergies, one of the most stubborn health
problems facing mankind today.
It is a natural, drugless, painless, non-invasive method that can be used safely on a newborn infant, on the
elderly, even on a healthy person to treat hidden allergies that could cause disease in the future.
It can be used on pets, invalids, children, even patients in a coma. NAET can
reduce or eliminate allergies to the items cleared by this method.
With this technique, allergens are cleared (treated) one at a time, in a specific order.
The good news is that following the prescribed formula, allowing for the 25-hour avoidance of the treated
substance, one session is all it usually takes to reduce/clear an allergy.
Highly sensitive individuals may require additional 'combination' clearings.
A treatment for my health
problems really exists...
Yes! At last there is freedom
from allergies and ailments arising from allergies.
Dr. Nambudripad's knowledge
in Eastern and Western medicine gave her the insights which guided her towards the discovery of this unique
treatment to overcome her own serious allergic reactions to foods.
In her own words, Dr.
Nambudripad tells the amazing story of how she freed herself from life-long allergies and the discovery of
NAET®, in her book Say Goodby To Illness.
I'm presently seeing a
chiropractor. How does my doctor's treatment differ from NAET...
Most standard chiropractic
treatments are centered around chiropractic adjustments, avoidance of harmful activities and perhaps stringent
diets in combination with dietary supplements.
Nothing in standard medical practice or chiropractic can offer the hope of health improvement and freedom from
allergies which is possible through the use of NAET.
NAET uses Oriental medical procedures for diagnosis and chiropractic principles for treatment.
You might recommend that your chiropractor learn and incorporate NAET, into his
or her practice.
How do acupuncture and
acupressure relate to allergy treatment by NAET...
Since acupuncture (or acupressure) points fall along the body's energy pathways,
or meridians, either of these methods may be used to balance the nervous system to bring the body to a state of
This is done in the presence of a given allergen, so that an allergic reaction will not result upon future contact
with that same substance.
When this result is obtained, the patient is said to have been 'cleared' of his allergy to that
How long does this
In our experience, if clearance is still effective 24 hours after treatment, it is lasting and should be for the
life of the patient.
We have not seen any recurrence of allergies from a successfully treated allergen in 20 years. So we believe it
should be for the life of the patient.
the nutritional assessment
Once you have been completely cleared for a particular food or environmental substance, it will no longer be
necessary for you to avoid it.
The reason we do nutritional assessment and balancing during and after a series
of treatments by NAET, is to restore strength and vitality to the body, which has long been deprived of its proper
share of nutrients due to the allergic sensitivity
to the items in the diet.
NAET Treatment procedures?
What is it and how does it work?
After diagnosis has been completed using standard medical testing procedures, computerized testing and/or
kinesiological muscle response testing, a systematic treatment procedure is begun in which the central nervous
system is mildly stimulated in the presence of each allergen, in order to reprogram the brain with the new
Most patients can successfully be treated by acupressure around the spine to stimulate the nerves which convey
messages to and from the brain going to the organs and other tissues all over the body.
You said, most patients...
Does this mean that acupuncture
may have to be used in
Many patients can be cleared of their reaction, upon initial treatment with acupressure alone.
But there are those who may require several treatments before clearing is accomplished--the addition of acupuncture
has proven helpful in speeding up the process.
Also, note that the number of treatments required for clearing an allergen may vary not only between patients, but
between different allergens with the same patient; the more severe the patient's reaction to a substance, the
greater the likelihood that more than one treatment will be required for clearing.
Is the acupuncture
No. It's only slightly uncomfortable, if at all.
And it's completely optional.
Application of the acupressure technique has proven to be as effective as acupuncture, though in some cases it may
not produce results as quickly.
Will I be completely
cured of my allergies...
80-90% of the patients treated thus far by NAET have experienced complete relief from their
allergic symptoms to the items for which they have been treated.
Most of them report that contact with previously troublesome foods or environmental substances no longer cause
How long will it take before I
experience this degree of success...
The total length of the treatment program varies greatly from one individual to another, depending upon the number
of specific allergies, and the overall intensity of the allergic condition.
It may take anywhere from 10 to 40 visits, depending on your condition, to note significant results.
For best results, usually just one allergen (or one group of closely related allergens) should be identified and
treated per office visit.
