pWe started NAET with our son. He has had about 10 treatments and to be honest, I have been very skeptical. Fortunately my family has the resources to do this, so we decided we would try, as long as our son was not put at risk./p
pMost of the early stuff cleared. It was interesting. Our son used to get a mild red rash from rice, and after rice was cleared, he did not...we remained skeptical and we did not necessarily attribute it to his treatments./p
pThen came the first nut treatment. We did nut group #2 first (pecans, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, cashews, and almonds). In the first treatment we did not have our son hold the nut vials (these vials do not contain nut protein). In the second he did (the vials were washed before). Our son broke out in some eczema on his arms. On his third treatment he held glass vials with the actual nuts in them (again the vials were washed before hand). His eczema flared again, and more than the last time (a few patches on his arms and legs), but it disappeared quite quickly after prolonged accupressure treatment./p
pAt this point, we almost decided to stop treatments all together. We were quite uncomfortable. We talked to our practitioner about our worries. She wanted to finish the nut #2 treatment (she even said she would do it for free). We decided to continue, and we did another treatment without our son touching the vials (they were in close proximity to him.) The next session and much to our surprise, it showed that he was cleared for the nuts. We asked for another treatment anyway. She did the accupressure treatment again, and our son held the vials (including ones with actual nuts in them) and he DID NOT get any eczema at all./p
pThis stuff is very different. Our NAET practitioner is very understanding. We told our Ped. about it and she said that accupressure could not hurt him, and she agreed that he should not touch the actual nuts./p
pWe still will NOT let our son touch the actual nuts. We are starting to think there may be something to this...but skepticism remains. We plan to have RAST test done next year./p

pHi, I have just joined this website and feel really relieved to find I am not alone! I have a 7 year old daughter who is severely allergic to many things, peanuts being the biggest culprit! It will be great to have a chat with other parents in the same situation. I look forward to your reply./p

pMy 20 year old son has been deathly allergic to peanuts since birth. We have been in the emergency room 11 times due to accidental ingestion of peanuts or peanut products. Everytime he received the full fledged treatment for allergic reactions and 3 of those times the doctor said he did not know how he made it through. He is so allergic he gasps for breath even to smell it . We have seen every specialist that even gave a shred of hope for a cure. I understand there are many people that promise a cure but there is NO WAY I would ever let him hold, much less taste a peanut. He carries an EPI-pen in his vehicle, the school had one on hand and every friend has one at their house. His most recent episode was with Dairy Queen, he ordered a Nerd's blizzard and apparently a peanut got into the Nerd's and off to the hospital in ambulance we went. The episode before that was a "smoothie" In both instances, he had advised them specifically of his allergy to peanuts. You have to watch every sinlge thing and it is alot easier when they are smaller. I am glad it worked for this lady and her son but I would hate for someone to lose their life because they felt there was a cure. I think it is a really deadly gamble. /p

pI am so sorry to continue this thread, but I am simply aching to share some rather amusing things I've found while researching NAET. First off is the "quackwatch" website. Dr. Barrett has some rather choice things to say about this allergy treatment: [url="http://www.chirobase.org/06DD/naet.html."]www.chirobase.org/06DD/naet.html.[/url] With this site, I almost felt as if the writer was being unduly harsh. In fact, for a long time now I've been feeling I'd like to give NAET a try for my son's pa allergy. And seeing how close minded some medical professionals are, I thought there just may be something to it (like some kind of perverse reverse psychology)./p
pThen, I went on the NAET website and poked around the discussion board ([url]http://www.naet.com/subscribers/index3.html[/url]). Let me tell you, I haven't had such a good chuckle in a long time! Some of these NAET patients are allergic to the most bizarre things. Here is a list of a few that people claim to be allergic to and NAET practioners feel they can cure: Every vitamin essential to human life, every mineral essential to human life, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon (in other words, air), electricity, and my personal favorite-other humans. This one actually isn't very amusing. There are mothers out there who believe they are allergic to their husbands and children, and vice versa. /p
pI so wanted to believe in this allergy elimination program. But how can I? I'm afraid I just don't have the faith it takes to try it out./p

pHello,br /
At the request of so many, I am thinking of having my son rast tested. My pediatrician sees no point in this, and refuses to do the test.br /
My question is: will I have to research allergists in my area, or is it possible they will simply do the test for me without going into unnecessary expense, or wanting to do those painful skin tests on my son, which I remember to be painful, and understand not as accurate? Would anyone be willing to offer their thoughts on this? He hates needles, and we only decided to do this as reassurance to others that this technique does work if done as protocol is taught and followed to the letter.br /
San, when are you having your child tested? Has anyone else had positive rast results?/p

pThere's a few things about NAET I've been wondering about (some have already been brought up on this thread but not really resolved). I'm doing my best to keep an open mind but am having great difficulty./p
p* Most of the NAET treatments I've heard of have been on kids, who often grow out of allergies on their own. Have any adult PA sufferers tried this and managed to completely eliminate their allergy?/p
p* All the people I've heard of who have used NAET have turned out to have dozens and dozens of allergies (all of which require multiple visits, suspiciously enough). Has anyone seen a NAET practitioner and only been diagnosed with a few allergies?/p
p* Has anyone sued a NAET practitioner for a failed treatment that resulted in anaphylaxis? (I'm trying to get a handle on the failure rate)./p
p* Do the treatments ever need 'topping up' or is it a once-only thing?/p
pThx,/p
p- A./p

pMy son was tested in August -- his peanut RAST was 0.42 (down from 4.38 in Feb.). As many of you many know less than 0.35 is not considered an allergy. Our allergist agreed to retest our son to see if his peanut score stayed low, decreased more, or returned to a higher level. The test has been ordered, but we decided to wait to draw the blood. We figured it would be more accurate if we waited longer. We still consider our son allergic./p
pLex, /p
pI have heard about failed NAET treatments (no on personally has told me, but I have read about them). We still consider our son to be allergic, and many people who treat using NAET do the same./p
pI will post when we get the next RAST results./p
