What is NAET

What are Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques?

Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques or NAET for short, is a holistic, non-invasive treatment used in eliminating food and environmental allergies permanently. It was discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad, in Buena Park, California. An acupuncturist, chiropractor, kinesiologist and a registered nurse, Dr. Nambudripad, began conducting research in 1984. Her Goal: Solve physical problems which had plagued her since birth and help others with similar problems. Her research resulted in the development of a new and effective approach for diagnosis and elimination of allergies of all types. Dr. Nambudripad utilized existing medical knowledge from various fields of medicine and combined this with her own discoveries.

NAET was developed by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad, a California acupuncturist, chiropractor, kinesiologist and a registered nurse, 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 two 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 permanent and amazing results.

Various studies to prove the effectiveness of NAET are now underway.

An open letter to NAET patients

from Dr. Devi Nambudripad

We have been receiving many complaints from patients who are being lured into clinics by doctors promising NAET allergy elimination treatments, but they are not receiving NAET treatments. Obviously these people are not getting better, nor are their allergies being eliminated. These patients are not getting better and are claiming that the NAET technique is not working. When done properly the NAET technique successfully eliminates allergies permanently to the treated allergen.
  • Some patients reported some type of color slides being placed at various locations on their bodies. They were made to rest for a few minutes with a glass tube in their hand and then told they were cured of their allergies.
  • While holding an allergen, another group was asked to lie on a special bed and a while later they were also told their allergies were cured.
  • A special machine treated yet another group. They placed their fingers into a computerized dish with flashing lights and some "Mumbo Jumbo" was done on them. They were also told that their allergies were cured.
  • Then there were those that were asked to touch certain parts of their body and sit for a short time in isolation while thinking about the allergen or allergic thought. They were then pronounced free of their allergies.
  • Another group was given $400-$500 worth of supplements, vitamins, enzymes, or sub-lingual drops on the first visit without removing any allergies. They were advised to take them with each meal. When they got nauseous, vomited and/or got cramps while taking the supplements, they were told that they were going through a healing crisis. There are times when supplements are advised (please see the Need for Supplements below).
  • Another group was treated with a laser light shone on certain points of their back for a few seconds, while holding the allergen in their hand. They were then told that they could go home and did not have to avoid anything, including the allergen they were treated for.

For your information folks,
none of these methods are taught by me and they are not NAET.

I cannot comment on the validity and effectiveness of any of the above mentioned techniques, I can only recommend what my personal and professional research has proven to work as valid and effective. I will emphatically state that those above mentioned methods are not NAET.

When your doctor performs real NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique) on you, your allergies will be permanently eliminated. Meaning that you will be freed from allergies to all correctly and successfully treated items, permanently! Whether it is eggs, shellfish, peanuts, chocolate, sugar, latex, formaldehyde, cosmetics, animals, pollens, dust, sun radiation or any living or non-living substance around you. This means that you will be able to eat foods, use items and go places that had previously caused adverse effects.

What is correct NAET?
 All patients will be instructed to read The NAET Guidebook (available from the practitioner’s office, or on this website), to find the suitable foods and/or items to avoid during the course of their treatment. "A true NAET practitioner will test your allergy with muscle response testing as shown in the book Say Goodbye to Illness. He or she will then treat specific acupuncture points on the back using strong acupressure either by hands or with a pressure device while the patient is holding the allergen in their palm, touching the sample with the pads of their fingers. All patients above the age of ten will then also receive acupressure or acupuncture needles on specific points on the front of the body. Patients are asked to remain for 15-20 minutes in the office after the treatment. At that time they are tested again for their muscle strength with the allergen in their hand. This time, if the treatment is successful, the patient’s arm should remain strong against the practitioner’s pressure. The patient is then asked to wash their hands or rub them together for a minute. Patients are instructed to avoid all contact with the allergen that they were just treated for, for 25 hours. They are also advised to read The NAET Guidebook to find the suitable foods they can eat for the next 25 hours. During the spinal NAET treatment procedure the NAET practitioner and the patient should be alone in the room to prevent electro-magnetic interference. Children, friends, patients, relatives, office staff or assistants, animals, and other pets should not be allowed in the treatment room. On the following visit (anywhere from 1 day to 7 days) the practitioner re-tests the previously treated item. If the result is satisfactory (cleared) the practitioner can treat another item."
-Dr. D.S. Nambudripad

The Need for Supplements

After completing the treatment for the essential nutrients (like Calcium, B Complex, Vitamin A, Iron, Vitamin E, trace minerals, mineral supplements and Amino Acids) it may be advisable to take supplements for a few months to reduce the deficiency by assisting the body to recover faster.

People who take appropriate supplements after treatments usually get better faster than people who depend on only food to supplement their needs. You should be careful to check the allergy to the particular vitamin/supplements before taking them. Even though, the patient was treated for vitamins like B Vitamins, C Vitamins, Minerals, Enzymes, etc. he or she can react with various, unusual health problems just by taking allergic products. So each container should be checked for allergy before taking it. Another concern about supplements is the possibility of overdose. After NAET treatments, the body is able to assimilate 80-100% of the nutrients from the products consumed. Check the daily need frequently and adjust the dosage accordingly. An overdose can produce allergy-like symptoms which can be treated with NAET (as an allergy).
