I'm looking to get information on this NAET treatment. I can't seem to load the "peanut allergy cure" thread anymore regardless of the PC I use. I would also like to know if anyone knows of a physician in the New England area (preferably Boston, but anywhere in NE is fine) who specializes in this treatment. Or, if that is unknown, how do I go about trying to find one?
Thanks in advance.
Andrea

I need help----what does NAET stand for. If someone could explain this, ti would be great, because I've seen this abbreviation used other places and can't make sense of it. Thanks in advance.

Here is an excellent site that discusses NAET in great detail. NAET stands for Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique. [url="http://www.chirobase.org/06DD/naet.html"]www.chirobase.org/06DD/naet.html[/url]

PeanutKate,
From what I read on your postings, you have made a decision about NAET. I read the NAET book, the quack site, all the postings on this website and more before deciding to try NAET for my son. It sounds like you read much of the same stuff, and you made a different decision about your willingness to try NAET. I respect you for wanting to educate others about your (and others') wariness about the NAET theory and practice.
I do not believe in all the NAET details, but I do believe in accupuncture, and I saw accupuncture (accupressure for my son) as a harmless treatment alternative for my son. This is why we tried NAET. We did not put a lot of hope in it. Interestingly, my son's CAP RAST went from 4.68 to 0.42 (barely an allergy). Is this from NAET?...I don't know.
I think people should know all the NAET details before they invest their time and emotion in NAET. Thank you for being a watch dog in this area. I wonder your inspiration be the watchdog...Did you have a bad experience with NAET? Just curious.
San

Hi,
Just for the record, the man who heads up that website is a close-minded individual who does nothing but knock everyone else. I asked him why he no longer practices medicine and he could not provide an answer! I think he just makes more money off of everyone he condemns.
NAET is an excellent highly effective allergy elimination technique that works if the protocol is followed to the letter. It has been given a black-eye by those who try to change it. My son and I have seen some powerful results that have been permanent.
You may visit the actual website at [url="http://www.naet.com"]www.naet.com[/url]
I work in a restaurant and deal with people with all kinds of allergies everyday. Many have tried naet through my information. This will not be right for everyone, but all should have a chance to review the information for themselves. So Kate, unless you have some real facts you would like to debate, stick to something you know about!
There is a list of qualified doctors on the website, but I would still recommend an e-mail to Dr. Devi Nambudripad to verify they were trained by her and her staff. This is very important, so you are sure to receive true naet!

TJ and PJ or whoever you are,
You make me ill. Peanutkate has every right to question NAET. I also have referred people to the quackwatch webpage. I refer people there for all sorts of reasons.
I am sick and tired of you pushing your sorry agenda on me and everyone else.
Why can you not admit that there are two sides to every issue??? In order for a person to make an informed and educated opinion, one must have as much information as possible. Even if it doesn't fit in YOUR medical philosophies. Kate gave us her webpage link and you have given us yours.
I am simply incredulous that you think that everyone is wrong and that you are right.
There now! I Knew I shouldn't have read this thread. I've been staying away from the NAET topic purposely.
Maybe NAET works and maybe it doesn't. But for god's sake, stop polluting this website with your extremist attitudes. You are only making yourself look uneducated and close-minded.
Oops! I just realized that I switched my screen name and never told anyone. I'm L&Mojoe. I'll switch it back today.

Curious,
I am not pushing anything on anyone!!!
If you knew anything about me, you would realize I am only here to offer help to anyone who would like to try an alternative.
I am quite educated, and you are out of line implying otherwise. If I had something to hide I certainly wouldn't use my own e-mail address or home location . I notice yours isn't available, anything your afraid of? I will meet anyone who would like to know more about naet. There are definitely two sides to everything, and as I've said to many people, this isn't going to be for everyone. It has to be a personal choice. It's an option that's all!!! I have lived the nightmare of peanut allergy and know just what everyone is going through. Most who have been helped by naet won't even post here because they don't want to be criticized by skeptics. They e-mail me with their results and questions, so as not to be put down. I've read a lot on quack watch and other sites like it, and I would refer someone there too if I had a legitimate reason! I'm very open minded to anything new that might help with my family's health. I always thoroughly investigate all possible resources first, is that what you have done?

I am constantly amazed how this NAET issue causes so much conflict on this site.
Those who choose to try NAET are not bad, those who choose not to are not bad. Those who want to share their experiences, both good and bad, are not bad. This website is used to exchange ideas. We are free to decide as we choose. I don't like the idea that users will not feel free to share their experiences because they are afraid of the wrath of other users. This should be a safe place where we feel free to share things we are excited about AND things we are concerned about. I wish users would not attact people personally.
I knew that sharing my son's NAET experience would create conflict, but I still wanted to share. I also want to hear others' NAET stories too...whether they are good or bad.
It seems the pro-NAET users are so excited about the results they want to share them with others -- so hopefully others will be able to get the same good results. It seems the anti-NAET users are concerned about an unproven method. They have read so much negative stuff and they want to share it with others -- so hopefully others will not be "fooled" by "empty" NAET promises.
Wow...everyone wants to help everyone! We do have something in common.
NAET is controversial, there is no doubt. I respect all who have made an individual choice about whether to try it or not. We tried it for our son. Most of us are adults...your choice is your decision.
San

I am not sure what postings have given the impression that I either favour or dispute NAET. I believe that information is neutral and that each of us validates facts and opinions in different ways. I found a site, and shared a link to it, that I thought might provide a point of view. In fact it points to information on other sites including Dr. Nambudripad's site. Access to all points of view is key to informed decision making. I hoped to be helpful in the information gathering process. I put nothing in my previous post that suggests bias. It is an excellent site, it shares a particular point of view but very importantly it links to other points of view. It has great detail. What did you find in my post that was biased or suggestive? I hope this clarifies where I was coming from.

PeanutKate, I think people are assuming you feel negatively about NAET because the Web site you recommended starts out by calling it a "bizarre" treatment. While the discussion on this Web site is extensive, I don't think anyone could call neutral. I, too, am amazed at how this topic causes such vitriol in responses. Curious, you clearly feel that NAET is quackery, but I don't think TJ and PJ's response deserved such nastiness. PeanutKate provided some information, TJ and PJ provided a link to another side of the issue, and we should all be happy that we have this group to give us as much information as possible!

I am definitely in the camp of the "nonbelievers" but felt that it might be a good idea to post some of the relevant information so we can all critically access the information that is out-there.
I have been unable to locate any articles on NAET in any "mainstream" peer-reviewed journals.

So many threads on this, so just raising one to tell of a friend who tried this with her milk and egg allergic dd.
This is a very reliable, and what I would call conservative person. She had heard about "accupressure" to treat allergies and found this referral in MA(where we live). She decided to give it a try. Drove some distance to do so. Nowe her dd has allergies that are commonly outgrown and her dd was/is going into first grade. Her egg allergy sounded mild(similar to my dd) but she avoided eggs in all foods, and her milk allergy was instant and severe GI upset.
Five sessions at $40, and she has tested negative at the allergist to her allergies and tolerates the foods. She was not pushy, but just brought it up after we were discussing school headaches and such. Left it loosely to give her a call if I have any interest at some point in the future.
I am quite intrigued, but she did concede that she has no idea if he has had any success with nut/anaphylactic allergies at all.
She also never told the allergist. Just went for her regular visit and her dd was tested and all was now negative. So, no before/after thing immediately, which would be interresting.
I have a backgroound in manual therapies and do have faith in many manual therapies for various maladies, based on edcuation and some personal experience. I am definately intrigued.
She did not call this NAET, exactly, but was trying to recall what the practitioner called it, and was using the letters N-E...something? She could not recall.
Just thought I would share! becca

Just thought I would respond by briefly saying - I have been and will continue to look into alternative ideas. I have not tried NAET but I will not say absolutely not for the distant future. I research EVERYTHING I do so that I am comfortable with my decision. I would never endanger my children but I don't always believe that Western med knows it all. I will also say that I will never get into a battle on this site over alternative medicine. I don't have the time or the energy.
Becca - if you ever want to contact me off site I would like to hear more about this. We seem to have a lot of the same questions on many issues.

becca,
do you have the referral info of the practitioner in MA ? We also live in Massachusetts and I would atleast like to meet the practioner and see if this is something that would be an option.
thanks.

This guy was in Danvers, and I can certainly get the name(it is not an endorsement from me). I was thinking the same. At least worth a call or a single consutation. I will call this friend.
FWIW, accupressure is totally non-invasive, simply holding pressure onto accupuncture points(might have theri own map). If anyone is concerned about their younger chidren.

Ben's been undergoing treatment for some time and I planned to post after it was all over, but I'll give an interim report. We are doing Bioset, which is an offshoot of naet--basically the same idea. His seasonal allergies vastly improved to the point that he seemed to have no trouble this past spring. He also breathes almost soundlessly at night, whereas before he snorted and sniffed and snored. We'll see how the fall allergies go.
He has been cleared for cats, but we haven't tested that out yet.
Now for food. Apples, bananas, melons and corn on the cob would make his mouth itch (any time of year according to him, not just during a certain pollen season which is what happens with oral allergy syndrome.) Apples and bananas are improved, but not all the way better. Melons are a no-go, but he's not showing clear on that anyway. Corn on the cob is fine now. He has been cleared on melons many times, but it doesn't seem to be sticking.
Peanuts: He's been cleared a bunch of times and was still showing "weak" (allergic.) Today was the first time the response was better (this is muscle testing--nothing to do with eating peanuts or anything) but still showing allergic. So, we'll keep trying and see. If his practitioner ever says he's cleared, we'll wait a year and have a CAP RAST and see if the numbers are down. He did have a "before" CAP RAST and it was over 100 for peanuts for the second time. The allergist told me it takes about a year for the antibodies in the blood to go away after an allergy is outgrown, so that's why we'll wait a year.

What is a muscle test? And how does it measure allergic reaction?

It's hard to explain muscle testing without demonstrating it, and hard to explain without sounding insane, but I'll do my best. You can test on your arm or with your fingers. With your arm, you hold your arm straight out and the practitioner pushes down on it. If the response is strong (your arm is very resistant), then you don't have a problem with whatever's being tested. If it's weak (your arm goes right down with the pressure) then the thing being tested has a negative impact on your body. It's not a real test of a true allergic reaction. With fingers, you hold your thumb and middle finger together and the practitioner tries to pull them apart. If the fingers come apart easily, it's weak. If they stay together pretty well, it's strong. With naet or bioset, the person is usually holding a vial of some allergen (in some diluted form--they're all clear liquid). Muscle testing is used in chiropractic too.
You can try this at home. Drink a glass of water and hold your arm out in front of you. Have someone press down on it. Then put some sugar in your mouth and do it again. Usually the response is weaker after the sugar. That doesn't mean you're allergic to sugar. I'm not sure what it means actually. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

I have had this done on me before me and it was called BODYTALK. There are a few books on it.
