pI got a private email response from (I think) the person who started this thread. Suffice it to say that this person started to compare belief in NAET to belief in "jesus" - need I say more?/p

pTo all of those out there who take support in this website I will only defend myself as to say I would'nt even dare to compare Jesus to any medical problem. I was'nt intending a private reply, only to save space on this board for more important issues. I only stated that many did'nt believe when Jesus walked this earth. I guess I should have chosen an example that did'nt include any religious overtones. I am deeply grateful for what this technique has done for my family and only the future will tell if others will be helped as we were. In response to my son's condition I will not be put on the defensive. I will always keep an epipen at school and at home with us, I will never forget what it is like to see your child suffer from this terrible allergy and the fear it has instilled in us to check and recheck every package and label before buying or using anything. Wondering if you should ever allow your child the privilege of attending a sleepover or as spoken of in another thread, the nightmare of going to a ballgame and all of a sudden you are surrounded by people eating peanuts and your only course of action is to pick your child up and carry him out of there before danger grows any closer. Perhaps trying to find a trustworthy child care provider who won't let your child out of her sight as you would? I have met with all these nightmares and more, and I will not be judged by one person who has chosen to dismiss me as though I were not of the same issue at hand. As I have stated before I only wanted to help others and I did'nt want to cause any problems. I only wanted to give an alternative idea that might benefit those willing to investigate the possibilities that n.a.e.t. has to offer. I am not a doctor, just an individual whose life and child's life has been changed in a way we did'nt think possible./p

pWhile I don't place much store in these alternative methods either, I believe that we ought to at least lend a sympathetic ear to this poor parent who is evidently grasping at anything to cure this horrible allergy. I would love to think that a cure is at hand, but prefer to wait for some tried, tested, and proven method for it. I am really taking to the heart the message bought back from one FAN conference that stated that we parents can expect our younger kids to go off to college with a prevention/cure for p.a./p
pGood luck to all./p

pAfter watching my child go into anaphlactic shock, I dont think I would give him peanuts/nuts, no matter who approved the cure. The experience has left a tremendous scar on my family. However, I think we can all agree to disagree. Each of us are responsible for our own child's well being. Are the risks worth the consequences? For my son, NO. Lynda/p

pOne of the marvels of the internet is that nobody can be certain of anyone else's identity. It's common practice for 'marketers' to infiltrate into virtual communities such as ours, use the right lingo/refer to familiar allergy situations, and thereby gain trust.br /
In some cases, two such individuals post -- the second to agree with said marketer./p
pNot that I'm accusing anyone here of this. In the case of this thread, the poster could well be a legit, concerned parent. It's just something else to keep in mind in general -- *especially* when someone visits with the purpose of introducing the community to a commercial product./p
pIn any case, I doubt that any such visitor would be willing to assume legal liability were one of us, or our children, to suffer an allergic reaction or die due to the 'natural' technique in question./p

pAgain, I suggest that you check out the naet web page, where they claim to be able to "cure" almost every known human ailment (why should they leave PA out?) and make your own judgement about how sincere, informed, and concerned this poster is. /p
pAlso, being a jew, I don't appreciate being lectured (via private email - how did she get my email address, anyway?) by this poster about how not believing in naet is just like not believing in "jesus"./p

pHi Rebgaby,/p
pWhen you post, look at the three items right next to the date of your post(i.e. box w/?, an envelope and pencil w/notepad. If you selected in your *profile* to have your e-mail visible to other people, all they have to do is click on the middle envelope and your e-mail address comes up. If you want to change this and not have your e-mail address available, click on *Profile* at the top of the screen and change your settings for your e-mail address not to be viewed which will be located at the bottom of the profile page./p
pOnce this is done, only two *items* will appear at the top of your posts instead of three. (The first one is for your profile, the second one is for your e-mail address and the third is to edit your own messages)./p
pStay safe./p

pYou said your child has been deathly allergic to peanuts since *birth.* At what age did you find out your child was allergic to peanuts and how did you discover his allergy?/p

pThanks, Connie. I forgot about that! It's fine for people to be able to see my email address - I have nothing to hide myself! I had just forgotten I had chosen that option./p
pIf anyone is wondering about naet as an "alternative" method for diagnosing and treating medical problems, the quackwatch link above is very good./p

pIn response to your question Connie, When my son was a baby my husband was eating peanutbutter cups and gave our son two tiny bites of the center filling. Within a couple of minutes he had welts all over his body and began to projectile vomit. Well we knew something was terribly wrong and called his pediatrition and he asked if we introduced any new foods. We told him about the p.b. cups and he said to get to the hospital immediately and he would meet us there. at the time we lived in a rural area and it would have taken an ambulence longer to find us than for us to drive him. By the time we arrived (about 10 minutes) he was barely breathing and his eyes were rolling back in his head. At that time I had never heard of such severe reaction to any allergy. I was what the allergy doctor called a 2+ on the scale, and she said he inherited it from me only of course much worse. Nobody, even family members seemed to understand the severness of his allergy and because they didn't listen we made a few more trips to the emergency room before everybody learned to check every label and ask questions when we went out. since the time he learned to talk he learned to ask for himself does this have nuts? I never let him try any other kinds so I don't know if it would have been the same! We just got our first computer two months ago and the internet Aug. 1st and thats why I never knew of this site. I never realized how many other people shared the same worries and how many are affected by peanuts. I was very excited to find something to help my son and I wanted to share our experience with others who had the same problem. I used myself as a guinea pig first to see if it really worked. When my seasonal allergies disappeared and have not returned this year! I felt we were onto something positive, so we started to eliminate food allergies and they have a been a sucess as well. I sure didn't mean to step on toes, and once again I never should have used Jesus as an example. Better said would have been- everyone thought the world was flat but Columbus took a chance and discoved it wasn't. I took a chance on myself so as not to risk my child and we found it to be beneficial for both of us. The doctors will openly admit this does'nt cure 100% of those who try. About 80-85% will be sucessful with this technique. I also wasn't trying to be liable for anyones health, it was only a recommendation for those who sought an alternative treatment./p

pI looked at "Dr." Nambudripad's website, and at "Dr." Ellen Cutler's website. In my opinion it is perfectly obvious to any intelligent person that both are QUACKS. BTW, neither is a medical doctor - both are chiropractors, and as I understand it, chiropractors are trained in spinal adjustment. Both websites promise "cures" for a huge range of human ailments using their techniques. Both are selling books./p
