Allergy Elimination (NAET)


What is NAET? A Comprehensive Guide for Prospective Patients

Many people experience allergies and sensitivities that impact their quality of life. From seasonal allergies to food intolerances, these conditions can cause a range of symptoms, such as hives, digestive issues, and even difficulty breathing. While conventional treatments, like antihistamines and allergy shots, can be effective for some, others find that they don’t fully resolve their symptoms. If you’re looking for a natural, holistic approach to allergy relief, you may be interested in NAET. In this blog post, we’ll explore what NAET is, how it works, and why it may be worth considering.

What is NAET?

NAET stands for Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques. It’s a natural and non-invasive form of allergy treatment that was developed in the 1980s by Dr. Devi Nambudripad, a California-based chiropractor and acupuncturist. NAET is based on the idea that allergies are caused by disruptions in the body’s energy pathways, and that by stimulating specific acupressure points and using chiropractic techniques, those pathways can be cleared, allowing the body to function normally.


How does NAET work?

The first step in NAET is to identify which allergens are affecting the patient. This is done through a muscle testing technique that involves exposure to small amounts of allergens while the practitioner applies pressure to certain areas of the patient’s body. The patient’s muscle response will indicate which substances they are sensitive to. Once the allergens have been identified, the practitioner will use acupressure and chiropractic techniques to stimulate energy pathways in the body, with the goal of eliminating the sensitivity.

What are the benefits of NAET?

One of the main advantages of NAET is that it is a non-invasive, drug-free approach to allergy treatment. It is also holistic, addressing the root cause of the allergies rather than just treating symptoms. Patients who have undergone NAET treatments report feeling more energetic, sleeping better, and experiencing a reduction in allergy symptoms, such as congestion, skin rashes, and digestive discomfort. Because NAET aims to permanently eliminate allergies, patients may find that they no longer need to avoid certain foods or environmental triggers.

Is NAET right for me?

As with any healthcare treatment, the suitability of NAET will depend on the individual patient. While it can be effective for a range of allergies and sensitivities, including food allergies, environmental allergies and chemical sensitivities, it may not be appropriate for everyone. Patients who are pregnant, have pacemakers, or are undergoing chemotherapy should not undergo NAET. It’s also important to note that NAET is not a substitute for emergency medical care in the event of a severe reaction to an allergen.
