An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity of one person to one or more substances ( may be inhaled, swallowed, or came in contact with the skin), which may be harmless or even beneficial to the majority of individuals. In sensitive individuals, contact with these substances can produce a variety of symptoms in varying degrees ranging from slight itching to swelling of the tissues and organs, general fatique, mild runny nose to severe asthmatic attacks. Do you have abdominal bloating or diarrhea after eating eggs? Will you suffer from running noses and crying eyes in spring time? Are you suffering from asthma or rhinitis? All of the above are the signs and symptoms of allergy.
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. Allergies are the result of energy imbalances in the body, leading to a diminished state of health in one or more organ systems. When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called meridians. This energy blockage causes interference in communication between the brain and body via the nervous system. The brain then ring the alarm and lead to allergic response, diseases, discomfort physiologically and emotionally.
NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques) is an revolutionary approach particularly relevant for dealing with allergies. It is a completely natural, painless, non-invasive method that 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. In 1983 Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad, D.C., L.Ac., R.N., Ph.D., discovered NAET and began extensive research and development for a new, effective approach to the diagnosis and elimination of allergies. She has pointed the way to perfect health by combining many methods and techniques form different disciplines of medicine, including: Allopathic, Kinesiology, Chiropractic, and Oriental medical procedures of Acupuncture and Acupressure. Dr. Nambudripad’s knowledge in Eastern and Western medicine gave her the insight and guidance to develop this unique treatment in order to overcome her own serious allergic food reactions. She shares the amazing story of her personal struggles to free herself from lifelong allergies in the book, Say Good-Bye To Illness. To date, thousands of patients who could not find relief elsewhere have been successfully treated for both food and environmental allergies by NAET. Over 8000 medical practitioners have been trained in this special procedure on permanent allergy elimination worldwide.
NAET is a synthesis of various medical disciplines such as allopathy, acupuncture, chiropractic, kinesiology and nutrition. Nambudripad’s Testing Techniques utilizes Muscle Response Testing (MRT) which indicates the kinetic imbalance in the body caused by allergens. The NAET treatment stimulates pressure points along the spine to re-programming the brain and balancing the energy. After the treatment, a strong MRT indicates that the allergy has been removed. The treated substance must then be completely avoided for 25 hours following the treatment for the best results. Allergens are treated and cleared one at a time in a specific sequence.
The basic treatments include treatment for the essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals that are needed for the normal physical, physiological and emotional functions of the human body. These nutrients are necessary to maintain a good immune system. In most cases one session is all that is required to eliminate an allergy. Individual who is highly sensitive may sometimes require additional treatments. Person with mild to moderate amount of allergies may take about 15-20 office visits to desensitize 15-20 food and environmental allergens.
NAET believes allergies can cause real illness. Early intervention can keep you away from allergies, allergy-related problems. NAET 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.
