pHello, I just wanted to clear up a small mis understanding. The Allerg.qc site is the Quebec Allergist site. It is a compilation of all things related to allergies. Not "one person is responsible for writing the site, rather it compiles results from studies around the world, among other things. If you take the time to read the studies authors you will see Allan Bock, Hugh Samson, Bruce Mazer , marie Noel, Zimmerman etc. They are all very good allergists involved in soleving the "problem". Great teaching site./p

pWow...I have just read every single post on this thread. I have always been a tad skeptical with alternative medicine until I tried a chiropractor as a last resort. Now although having my son adjusted has NOT cured anything, it has helped with his asthma...which shocked me. I became a true believer in chiropractic medicine when I went for my neck and ended up having premature menopause for 4 years completely reversed after 6-8 sessions, and yes I have proof through blood work and my gyno was in complete shock. I do have to continue to go though once a week to keep it in tact, but it sure beats hormonal replacement./p
pI heard about this NAET a while back on the parentsplace site and then again at National Jewish Center in Denver, CO (a hospital specializing in allergies and asthma). I am not ready to try NAET as I find it too scary, although for those of you who have tried it and it worked, I think it is great that it worked for you. I think if I were to try it, I would research it, do it on myself first as the guinea pig/test the waters, and if I saw results then possibly try it on my children...but then again...I think I would prefer waiting until my child was old enough to decide whether he/she wanted to try it themselves. I don't think there is one right answer to using or not using NAET...it is what works best for each individual person/family. I do believe that knowledge is power with allerigies and anything else we have to deal with, with our children. So now we all know about it, and can make that decision to research it or not. As with everything, there are pros and cons to it...just as there are pros and cons to using prednisone/pediapred./p

pHi san103!br /
Good luck and best wishes on your upcoming naet treatments! I hope you have the same fantastic results we did.br /
My daughter is doing wonderfully! We have not had further rast testing done yet. The doctor suggested waiting a few months.br /
I must tell you though, she did give me a little scare, which turned out to be nothing, thank goodness!br /
After Easter I found a Reese's peanutbutter cup wrapper in her room and almost blew up. I have told her not to eat anything with peanuts unless I know about it first. I checked her candy bag from her aunt's house, but must have missed that piece. How careless was that? Well she never had any reaction to that peanutbutter cup, and I am very releived for having found naet!br /
She has never attempted to try anything before this, but she had thought in her own little mind she was cured and didn't think she was doing anything wrong! I explained I still needed to know if she would like to try something, and never try anything away from home, without mommy or daddy!br /
I will post when we return for our rast tests in the next few months!/p

pHi!br /
If anyone is interested, Dr. Nambudripad, the founder of naet will be on t.v. tonight.br /
The broadcast is for the Los Angeles area.br /
It will be aired between 10:30 and 11:00 pm tonight. May 12th. The station doing the broadcast is KTTW fox news. If anyone gets to see this, I would love to hear what she has to say!br /
Also. for the inquiry as to how my son is doing, he is great! It has been almost a full year now since he was completely cleared of his peanut allergy, and he is still doing wonderful! He tries different things from time to time, but nothing has really appealed to him as of yet. We are still planning to have him take a rast test, but have been very busy moving and getting settled into a different home. When we take him I will be sure to post the results!/p

pI have read every last post on this thread and I must say how shocked I am at how TJ and the other Moms who've tried naet and found success, have been attacked. I can't believe how narrowminded and insensitive some people can be. Do you actually think from one recommendation we're all going to run out and blindly jump into something? Some of you seem to think that's what TJ is trying to make us do. I, too, am a natural skeptic and if I were going to do anything to help my PA daughter I would research and find out more statistics and thoroughly investigate the technique. I'm so pleased that people like TJ are willing to come out and share their success stories with us. It does give a glimmer of hope to end one very serious and life threatening allergy. The least people can do is give others respect and BE DECENT, for crying out loud. Also, for those of you that do believe in God, don't you think that God works in mysterious ways? And for those of you that don't believe in God, are you too egocentric to think that there are things out there that you just don't know about yet?/p

pHi Latymom,/p
pHere is a bit of advice you may want to try.... Lighten up and smile. Seems this is your first post and you have already called many of the people on this board: egocentric, narrowminded, and insensitive. During this scolding you have said that others should be decent and give others respect./p
pNow, this does not seem to be very decent of you. We all need to vent at times and we all make mistakes at times, but please lighten up as we are all here to share and try to be productive and friendly./p
pI'm not mad. I'm not upset, but I think you should smile and try to see the humor in your post as you scold us and judge us as quickly as you think we judged NAET./p

pHello Sue,/p
pThank you for your response. I do believe in constructive critisism and your point is taken, however, as you said, at times we need to vent and I also felt the need to defend the Moms out there that were only trying to relay some positive information in a forum that isn't always very positive. It wound me up to read every single one of the posts and to see the degree of insensitivity toward TJ etc. Perhaps my very first post has got me off to a bad start but I felt compelled to give my .02. All I'm saying is, keep an open mind, and give people the respect that they deserve. We are all in this battle together, let people say their peice and if you don't agree, don't be so harsh./p
pPeace/p

pI'm sorry, I just wanted to add that I feel that all of you that spoke out against NAET have the right to your feelings. You've seen some horrific things happen to your children, as have I, and you only want to be protective of your family and the families of the others on this board. My only real "beef" is that there are ways to disagree with others without being insensitive. It looked to me like TJ and some of the other Moms have finally found a bit of peace from this terrible allergy, isn't that what we want? Can't we at least hear people out that have such success stories? I feel like if we put people down for coming forward with "strange" ideas that maybe nothing will ever be done about this. I'm open to hearing anything that might help my daughter, and I'll make the decision, after much research whether it's for me or not. Don't discourage openess and there are ways to debate without sounding mean. Thanks./p

pHi!br /
I just thought I would share a little more information with all of you. I recently purchased a book from Bantam publishing called: "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom".br /
In this book NAET is talked about in several chapters. In relation to how it can eliminate allergies, as well as helping some other ailments.br /
I know many have asked if there is anything published about NAET. Here is one resource for you to check out!br /
The book is written by: Dr. Christiane Northrup. Lots of other good info in it too!!!/p
