Allergy Elimination (NAET)
What Is NAET?
NAET is a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to alleviate allergies of all types and intensities using a blend of selective energy balancing, testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine.
How Does It Work?
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 from the neck to the sacrum while the patient is holding an allergen. After the treatment, a strong MRT indicates that the allergy has been removed. Specific acupressure points are then massaged or acupuncture needles may be inserted for 20 minutes to stabilize the treatment. The substance must then be completely avoided for 25 hours following the treatment for best results. Allergens are treated and cleared one at a time in a specific sequence. Normally only one item is treated on a given day. In most cases one session is all that is required to eliminate an allergy if NAET is applied properly. Individuals who are highly sensitive may sometimes require additional treatments.
Why Does It Work?
The main cause of allergies is a software error in ones' brain-computer or let's say one's brain-computer software has a 'virus'. This virus causes malfunction of the software, leading to malfunction of all the body functions. This causes the body to become sensitive to everything in its surroundings. The malfunctioning program does not recognize things surrounding the body anymore.
In people with allergies, the normal imprint (memory) about the harmless of substances such as peanuts, fish, pollen dust, perfume, etc., has somehow been erased from the brain's memory and has substituted the memory with new information that identifies the substance as being dangerous. Thus, the immune system mistakes a harmless substance for a dangerous intruder it must destroy. When a person with allergies is exposed to something it perceives to be an allergen, the immune system produces antibodies to fight it as a harmful invader.
Yin-Yang theory from Oriental medicine principles teaches the importance of maintaining homeostasis in the body. According to Oriental medical principles, "when the body is in perfect balances, no disease is possible". Any disturbance in the homeostasis can cause disease. Any allergen capable of producing a weakening muscular effect in the body can cause disturbance in homeostasis. Hence, diseases can be prevented and cured by maintaining homeostasis. According to acupuncture therapy, acupuncture and or acupressure at certain acupuncture points is capable of bringing the body to a state of homeostasis by removing the energy blockages from the energy pathways known as meridians. When the blockages are removed, energy can flow freely through the energy meridians, thus bringing the body in perfect balance. NAET uses this technique along with other medical disciplines to maintain optimum health.
Can NAET Help Me?
An individual can be allergic to anything: foods, drinks, pharmaceutical drugs, herbs, vitamins, water, clothing, jewelry, chemicals, paint, silicone, latex, plastics, pollen, grasses, etc. Allergy symptoms can range from mild to debilitating reactions to life-threatening. Medical scientists are still researching to find the exact cause and nature of allergies. From a Wester medical point of view, an allergy is an overreaction of the immune system. In NAET, allergies are viewed from a holistic perspective based on Oriental Medical principles and defined in terms of the effect an allergic substance has on the energy flow in the body.
An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity of a person to one or more substances which may be harmless to the majority of other individuals. In the allergic person, the allergic substance (known as allergen) is viewed by the brain as a threat to the body's well-being. When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called meridians, disrupting 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 which begins a chain of events that can develop into an allergic response.
Undiagnosed allergies are often the cause of common or chronic illnesses which when left untreated can become serious or critical. Through illness, pain, inflammation, headaches, fever, heart attacks, strokes, abnormal growths, tumors, and various physical, physiological and physchological discomforts, the brain signals the body about the possible dangers if the energy blockages remain within the body. The result of energy imbalances in the body leads to a diminished state of health in one or more organ systems. By reprogramming the brain and removing the blockages from the energy pathways, NAET allows the body to regain perfect balance (homeostasis) and function normally to reach optimum health.
