STAY FREE OF ALLERGIES FOR LIFE! I couldn't believe my eyes when I read those words. They were my introduction to NAET, Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques. A dramatic new treatment for the cure of allergies [and sensitivities].
I am one of the thirty-five million Americans who know they have allergies and who want and pray for relief. The discovery of NAET treatment came as incredible, welcomed news. For the fifty percent of Americans (128 million people) suffering from various health problems caused by allergies not yet known to them, NAET will come as an astonishing surprise.
For we, the allergic [and sensitive], there is the possibility of an attack any time we introduce anything into our body or environment. I define an allergy to be an unusual or exaggerated response of sensitive individuals to certain substances. This type of biological hypersensitivity occurs in sensitive individuals, while remaining innocuous in similar amounts and circumstances in others. [Editors Note: Be aware that this definition of ‘allergy’ is quite different than the medical definition. I prefer to use the term ‘sensitivities’. I have seen NAET effectively treat both allergies and sensitivities.]
Undiagnosed allergies can produce symptoms, illnesses, even chronic diseases like migraine headache, backache, asthma etc. These can affect every system and organ in the body. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, immune disorders, hyperactivity, arthritis, anxiety, depression, addictions and many other conditions can be allergy-based. Until the mystery of allergies was revealed to me, I continued to spend years and many dollars, fruitlessly visiting medical specialists, never getting better. Simply passing an open door of a nail salon immediately affected my lungs and soon after, my eyes began tearing with no end in sight. Within twenty minuets in a meeting at someone's home, where hours earlier the pets had been put out side or out of sight, I would feel a tingling in my throat. This would be followed by extensive sneezing and wheezing for hours, interfering with my sleep. These events left me exhausted for the next two to three days.
What is NAET?
The treatment known as Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, NAET, is a blending of the non-invasive procedures from Western and Eastern healing practices that help to eliminate allergies of all kinds, permanently. It is a specific treatment procedure formulated by combining chiropractic and Chinese Medicine principles applied through spinal manipulation, acupuncture, kinesiology, acupressure and nutrition. This powerful process was discovered quite accidentally in November of 1983 by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad, who is a Doctor of Oriental Medicinel, Doctor of the Chiropractic Arts, Licensed Acupuncturist, R.N., and Ph.D. Through the years she has ceaselessly perfected her technique while studying the effect of this technique on thousands of patients.
NAET uses Muscle Response Testing (MRT) to confirm the presence of allergic reactivity. Once identified, Dr. Nambudripad uses spinal manipulation, acupressure and / or acupuncture procedures to eliminate the allergy. The treatment is geared to re-program the brain's negative responses towards the allergen(s) to a positive response whenever these substances are contacted in the future. NAET is based on the Chinese Medicine principle, that "no disease is possible when your body is in perfect balance". Through NAET, my health is being brought back into a "homeostasis" or a perfect energy balance throughout my entire body. NAET offers an Energy Medicine solution to allergic conditions by balancing the body and mind through three pathways:
1. The mind-body energy pathway (Psycho-somatic pathway),
2. The body-mind energy pathway( Somato- visceral pathway) and
3. The mind-body-organ pathway (Psycho-somato-visceral pathway)
All of this is accomplished through the stimulation of the spinal nerves using a specific acupuncture/acupressure and spinal manipulation protocol without drugs, allergy shots, or any forms of invasive entry into the body.
For the last fifteen years, Dr. Nambudripad has been using her own discovery, the Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET), at her clinic in Buena Park, California, to relieve between 80-90% of her patients' hidden allergies. People come to her from all over America and other countries for this unprecedented degree of relief. She has taught NAET to over 1,300 licensed doctors of chiropractic, acupuncture and traditional medicine. That means, this innovative allergy treatment is now available in many parts of the U.S. and other countries as well. Based on the principle that all matter is associated with energy fields, NAET makes use of the central and autonomic nervous systems ability to recognize and respond to these energy fields. The human brain is intelligent beyond belief. It constantly gathers information from all around us, minute to minute, second to second, and stores it in its memory bank to recall it at a later time as needed. The brain remembers and/or registers everything that has happened during a lifetime. As a result, we have a tremendous ability to interact with the energy fields of all things: people, animals, matters, objects, electrical and Electro-magnetic forces, liquids, gases, polluted dust, pollens, chemicals, etc. as we encounter them in daily life. We are may not be consciously aware of the encounters with these energy fields. This is the silent job of our autonomic nervous system as it maintains our body functions, manages our breathing, keeps the heart beating, falling asleep, waking up, thinking, etc.
All neurons or cells in the body are connected by an interlinking network of nerve fibers. These produce the fastest, most proficient communication system in the body. This communication is powered by our vital energy known as "Chi" in Chinese vocabulary.
When our bodies no longer respond to the signals from this communication system, we are pronounced dead. Communication between brain cells, body cells, body organs or different body parts takes place within a fraction of a second. Any blockage in this communication network causes disruption in the circulation of vital energy. This in turn will cause imbalance in the energy pathways, body cells, organs and functions of the cells and organs. Imbalances in the energy channels over a long period of time will result in illness or disease.
Located throughout the body, these energy pathways contain many Electro-magnetic cells called Bonham corpuscles. These cellular structures are very sensitive. They filter all the energetic movements through the energy pathways. They can let the energy pass through them easily or they can selectively block the energy transmission through them. They can also be blocked in both their chemical and electrical charges so that the energy pathway in which they exist is effected in a negative manner. Allergic and sensitivity response comes into play when a perceived allergen (or the source of energy disruption) blocks a pathway on either the physical, biochemical, or emotional (cellular) level.
Beginning with infancy and childhood, we encounter many adverse energies. Exposure to various hostile things such as radiation, chemical toxins from external sources (bacterial infection), toxins from internal sources (lactic acid buildup), physical trauma causing damage to the tissue, long term illness causing a weakened immune system, severe malnutrition causing obstruction in the nerve conductivity, emotional traumas, etc. All these can disrupt the energy circulation and leave blockages in the energy meridians, in the DNA, or cell memory. Each of these traumas imprints a certain frequency in the energy meridians and in the genes.
Events or thoughts taking place in or around the body are captured into the memory and stored in the memory bank (of the brain, for the duration of a lifetime) to be recalled as the need arises. This is a defense mechanism to protect the organism from possible similar future dangers. Then, at a future contact, any substance or event that falls within the similar frequency of conductivity, be it physical, chemical or emotional, can activate the same template creating similar responses that the organism experienced upon first exposure.
If the first imprint produced an unpleasant reaction, the following ones with similar frequencies will cause similar unpleasant reactions. This unpleasant reaction of the organism is called an allergic or sensitivity reaction. If it is not removed or repaired similar energies with similar frequencies will not be able to conduct energy (travel) through the area due to the blockage(s). Until they are removed, these blockages can stay forever on the energy pathways causing varying degrees of strain on the target organs, tissues and nerve tracts. Such continuous stress will cause acute and chronic symptoms and illnesses due to a lack of energy supply to the related functions of the vital organs such as the circulatory, digestive, respiratory, excretory and immune systems, etc.
How Does NAET Work?
The first step was to discover each of my blockages. I wondered if there was an easy way to locate them without going through extensive laboratory tests and radiological examinations, etc.? The answer came back, "Yes!" Dr. Nambudripad explained that these blockages can be tested using a simple procedure called muscle response testing (MRT). In this procedure, the doctor compared the strength of a specific muscle in my arm, in the absence and in the presence of a suspected allergen. The particular muscle tested remained very strong in the absence of the allergen. The same muscle becomes weak in the presence of the allergen (or anything the body is sensitive to).
The blockages of the energy channels (meridians) are released through manual manipulation (acupressure) of specific meridian points located along the spine thus allowing the energy to flow freely for the few moments that it takes the brain to reprogram in a new memory.
After she determined what my allergies were, in the presence of the particular allergen, Dr. Nambudripad instructed me to lie on my stomach. She then used a pressure device and occasionally used her thumbs to stimulate the energy flow along the ascending and descending nerve tracts of my spine through a series of specific acupressure points.
In the presence of the allergen, my body was brought into perfect balance with the creation of a new memory about the allergen. This new memory now over-writes my previous one and becomes my most recent and permanent one.
I was then asked to lie face up while Dr. Devi re-tested my muscle strength in the presence and in the absence of the allergen. My muscle was now strong in the presence of the allergen. Following this step, I was taken into another room for acupucture. Acupuncture was applied to the energy-balancing points on my hands and legs.
My entire body remained in a state of perfect balance for approximately twenty minutes.
When the needles were removed I was again re-checked for the integrity of the same muscle that was used initially. A strong muscle test indicated that the particular allergen, being held in my hand, was not going to produce any adverse reaction for me in the future.
As the final step, I was instructed to avoid all contact and proximity with the allergen (no touching, no eating, no smelling, etc.) for 24 hours (this can be decreased to 4 hours by doing the treatment on a special magnetic mat). The twelve major energy meridians "reset" themselves at two hours per pathway.
This discovery could not have come at a better time. According to Dr. Nambudripad, "the modern world we live in is getting so over-loaded with new chemicals. Allergic people are being driven away into a separate new world...a world of isolation. Far more people have allergies, than doctors, or the patients themselves, have ever suspected. The shocking fact is that there is hardly any human disease or condition in which allergic factors are not involved. Actually, any substance under the sun, including sunlight itself, can cause an allergic reaction in any sensitive individual." To my great relief, we now have NAET! I can have my nails done, enjoy the experience, and rest that night. I am free!
Dr. Nambudripad has personally certified over 1,371 licensed health professionals from all over the world. The number of NAET specialists steadily increases as she conducts monthly training seminars at her educational facility in Buena Park, California. NAET practitioners are now able to eliminate allergies of all kinds, in people (and animals) everywhere. In her studies, Dr. Nambudripad has found "people can be allergic to anything. There are some people who are literally allergic to everything. Foods, clothing, plants, chemicals, air-borne dust and pollutants, vitamins, tap water, vaccines, furniture, plastic, metals, wedding rings, piano keys, water, heat, acrylic fingernails, clothing labels, saliva, sweat, even their own adrenaline. The list is staggering."
In her bold new book, "Say Goodbye to Illness", Dr. Nambudripad promises to and will absolutely "revolutionize the practice of medicine." It may sound like an exaggeration, but for Dr. Nambudripad and her extensive, on-going research, it is the simple truth. Dozens of dramatic case studies presented in the book support her strong claim.
Diagnosing hidden allergies in itself is not revolutionary. Environmental medicine has been doing that for several decades. Usually the allergenic substance is removed from the patient's life. They go on a rotation diet, and they can manage. Suddenly, with Nambudripad's techniques applied, people are allowed to continue using the very substance that has made them sick, without any further adverse results. The allergy is simply gone.
The secret to NAET is to re-train the brain and nervous system to no longer react to the offending substance. We can see how this works by way of a few stories from her research case histories.
Tina was a 29 year old woman, who came to Dr. Nambudripad complaining of severe daily migraine headaches for the past nine years. Upon her arrival that particular day she did not have one. When ever she had gotten a headache, she would suffer for days, and was now having severe headaches.
The only unusual thing she had done during the nine years was to become a strict vegetarian. When she was tested through MRT, she was found to be very allergic to Vitamin C. She was given a Vitamin C pill to chew. Within ten minutes she had an intense reaction: she instantly got a headache. It intensified along with nausea, chills, muscular stiffness, and an elevated body temperature (fever).
Dr. Nambudripad treated her at once for an allergy to Vitamin C. Within 30 minutes, she felt better. On the following visit, she shared the good news that she had not had another headache, what so ever, after her first visit to our office five days prior.
Nina, 35 year old female, suffered from severe ragweed allergy all her life. During the allergy season, she had to hide indoors for days and weeks at a time. After she got treated with NAET with Dr. Devi, she is absolutely free of symptoms during the allergy season for the last two years now.
Six-year-old Dominic suffered from severe autism and his parents were very sad to watch him suffer, until his mother was given the book "Say Goodbye To Illness" by Dr. Devi by her psychologist. She immediately took him to Dr. Devi. After 20-25 NAET treatments with Dr. Devi, Dominic is a normal boy who attends regular school now.
Five-year-old Daniel suffered from repeated ear infection, frequent bronchitis, and asthma. Whenever he took the prescription medication "amoxicillin", or any other antibiotics including erythrocine, he broke out in rashes and hives, sometimes along with fever for days. His pediatrician suggested his mother to try NAET and gave her the book to read. She took Jason immediately to Dr. Devi. Now he can use amoxicillin or any other usual prescription medication without any reaction if needed. He also reacted to grasses, pollens, pesticides, and dust. He was treated for all these substances with NAET. He does not have any adverse reactions to the environmental substances anymore. Now he is a healthy 11 years old. He does not get any asthma anymore. He can virtually eat anything, go anywhere, and play in the grass in the school in the little league team.
Nancy had severe allergy to latex. She could not use any product with latex in it. She would get hives, weeping skin blisters, fever, and many other systemic symptoms with any contact with latex. Few times, she almost went into an anaphylactic shocks whenever she used latex derivatives for a short period of time. Because of this she could not even see any Dentist or get her teeth cleaned. After NAET treatments with Dr. Devi, she got her teeth cleaned for the first time in her life. Now she is working full time with various latex products without any adverse reaction.
Thomas was a computer programmer, age 28, who started experiencing extreme fatigue only a year after taking a new job. He was so tired he hated going to work. His job performance dropped, he could barely walk without someone's help. He was diagnosed as having chronic fatigue syndrome. He took time off from work, seemingly facing a grim future. Yet he started to feel better, just by being home. But when he returned to work, he got worse again.
This cycle continued for four years until he had the good fortune to visit Dr. Nambudripad. She tested Thomas for allergies and found he was allergic to the plastic material of his computer keyboard and to computer screen radiation. She used NAET on Thomas and he was able to resume full time work with no further allergic reactions.
How is this possible?
Normally, the patient would remove the allergenic substance and stay away from it forevermore, yet here are Tina and Thomas able to resume living while in contact with a substance that had made them terribly sick. The secret of NAET lies in the energy pathways, the energy blockages and the NAET treatments described above. Here's what happens, according to Dr. Nambudripad's theory. Our energy systems and brain interpret a particular substance as potentially harmful to our body. For other people these items, a diamond ring, a carob-coated cherry, a peanut or hot water are harmless, everyday trivialities. Let's say for my system, one or more of these is toxic. My energy pathways freeze up as a way of defending the body against this unsuitable substance. This in turn blocks my energy meridians and if the condition never changes, the overall functioning of my body suffers.
"With the first bite of most allergic foods, the brain begins to block the energy channels to prevent the entrance of the adverse energy of the food into the body," Nambudripad explains. This is what produces allergies. In Tina's case, it was her stomach meridian that got blocked and kept generating the allergic symptoms of migraine headaches. The sudden blocking of the meridians is one of the quickest defense mechanisms of the brain to stop the allergen from entering deeper into the body.
Imagine you are washing your face with soap and water, and a drop of soapy water goes into your eye. Your immediate response is to shut your eyes tight to prevent any more soap entering your eye. You keep your eyes closed until you wash your eyes with clean water or dry it off, until you are sure it is safe to open your eyes again. The same principle is applied here when an irritant's energy tries to enter our energy meridians. Just like the soapy water caused energy disturbance in the eye, the irritant (an allergen) causes an energy disturbance in a meridian. This blocks the energy flow, the body becomes unbalanced, symptoms show up, and eventually, you get sick.
Using Dr. Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, the re-interpretation undoes the body's conditioned response and allows it to co-exist again with everyday items.
"Is a permanent cure for allergies possible?" At last the answer is a definite "yes"! Dr. Nambudripad learned the principles of NAET via the most organic personal process- being sick since childhood with multiple illnesses; eczema, arthritis, joint aches, bronchitis, insomnia, clinical depression, sinusitis, migraine headaches, chronic exhaustion, plus having suffered three miscarriages. These events were her best possible teachers.
By the time she arrived in Los Angeles nearly twenty years ago from India, she was taking thirty aspirins a day to survive. She tried a wide variety of doctors, techniques, medicines, herbs, vitamins, and nutritional programs. Everything just made her worse. The only things she was not allergic to were white rice and broccoli. "Every inch of my body ached," said the young Nambudripad.
Finally, she stumbled upon an acupuncturist who tested her for allergies. He was the first physician Dr. Nambudripad encountered who made the link between her rather stunning list of problems and undiagnosed allergies. "I followed my doctor/teacher's advice and ate white rice and broccoli exclusively." All of her symptoms started to lift, but as soon as she started to add more items to her food list, the allergic reactions returned. "I was simply allergic to everything under the sun," she said. Was she to live on rice and broccoli the rest of her life? That is what she did for the next forty-two months.
Then one day she ate a piece of carrot and made a discovery that led to NAET. After eating only a few bites of carrot, Dr. Nambudripad instantly felt tired and lethargic, as if she were going to faint. She used muscle testing on herself and learned she was highly allergic to carrots. Was this to be just another item added to her unending list of untouchable substances? No. This time Dr. Nambudripad had an idea.
She and her husband Kris, a licensed Acupuncturist, gave her acupuncture, working with the points they knew would keep her awake or prevent her from going into shock. After the treatment she slept for forty-five minutes. When she awoke she felt completely different. Assessing how she was now feeling as to how she felt just prior to inserting the needles, and comparing to how she had felt for years, this was a new state of "supreme well-being." No longer feeling sick and tired, she jumped off of the treatment table with the acupuncture needles still in tact. She found a few pieces of carrots stuck to the bare skin on her back. These must have dropped on the table in the panic while her husband was treating her with the needles.
That's when she saw the link between holding the allergenic substance within the body's electromagnetic field while receiving a treatment for adverse food reaction. Somehow the combination of the two took the allergenic charge out of the carrots. Her body was no longer repulsed by the energy of the carrots. To prove it, she ate the remainder of the carrot and had no allergic reaction what so ever. She tested her muscles for carrots and the response was strong. Carrots had lost their allergic effect.
The result is NAET. In the last fifteen years of clinical use it has entirely relieved allergy symptoms or produced satisfactory improvements in 80-90% of her patients, which number in the thousands. "In every case, allergies were cleared out, never to return," reports Dr. Nambudripad, from her "profound" research files. And all this without any strict rotation or elimination diets to avoid the allergy-producing substance.
Recognition of Allergy in Medical Practice
The experience opened Dr. Nambudripad's eyes to a new world of cause and effect in understanding allergies. "I discovered that although allergy awareness has been gaining acceptance as a separate area of medical study in the last few years, allergy certainly has not been given the recognition it deserves as a primary cause of many types of disorders and illnesses." Both physicians and patients have attested to the high degree of success with NAET treatments. Many people have said goodbye to illnesses they thought were permanent afflictions. I have included a few brief testimonials.
"Dr. Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique is the most incredible practice tool I have seen in health care in my forty years of practice," states chiropractor John Kassler, from North Carolina.
"I have seen NAET put my extremely sick patients back in control of their lives once again. After completion of a NAET treatment program, they are free of symptoms, free of excessive medication, and free once again to enjoy good food and good health." comments acupuncturist Jan K. Steele, L.Ac., O.M.D.
Even the allergy specialists, such as Environmental Medicine physician Sandra Denton, M.D., of the Alaska Alternative Medicine Center in Anchorage, admit that NAET has shown them something new about treating allergies.
Dr. Denton herself had endured chronic fatigue syndrome and serious asthma for years until Dr. Nambudripad revealed the host of substances she was allergic to and freed her body of its need to react against them. "Dr. Nambudripad pointed out to me that many health problems in people all over the world are undiagnosed allergic reactions. The immune system is compromised by multiple allergic reactions that allow diseases to attack the weakened host," Denton says.
"I felt as if I was let out of jail, that I escaped from allergy hell!" A comment from a case history recorded by an acupuncturist using NAET treatments.
This happy patient, like many others, has experienced a way to transform the allergic body into a healthy, balanced, and livable body.
