pHi,br /
I am so sorry I haven't posted. My son is doing great. He did have his blood work done. His peanut allergy has gone from a class 4 and ige levels of 700 to a class 2 and ige levels of 150. All the other nuts were a class 0. He is no longer allergic to corn, wheat and pork. His milk allergy stayed the same which is a class 5 and his egg is still a class 2 but he can eat them with no reaction. I have to bring him back to get treated again for milk. He can tolerate it in cooked foods. I have to ask the doctor about that. But I am happy with the results. He is a 100% then what he was 6 months ago. Jan/p

pDid you tell your allergist about NAET? What was his response?/p

pHi Jan,/p
pThank you for posting ... my husband and I couldn't wait to hear from you! We think that your test results are awesome. Even with your son still being sensitive to the peanut he did drop down two levels to a level 2! We will be going on the 21st of this month to speak with a physician trained in NAET ... looking forward to finding out more about it. We figure it is worth it ... even if it only brings his scores down a little. Thank you again for posting and we wish you and your family the best./p

pJust be warned - here's another message from an NAET believer!/p
pMy 4-year-old son with life threatening peanut, cashew and shellfish allergies is currently undergoing treatments. /p
pI obtained our practitioner through word of mouth here in Colorado Springs. There are many people trained in NAET, but no one who had patients with true results. I didn't want to waste my money, nor my time. Our practitioner is also an R.N. who is trained in Dr. Devi Nambudripad's method. She warned me that she didn't want me to immediately try out peanut butter on our son after the nut treatment! She realizes that NAET helps 80% of patients, and she doesn't want to be over confident./p
pMy suggestion: find people in your area who can give a recommendation for a practitioner. Just because a chiropractor has taken one course doesn't mean he/she can perform the treatments adequately. Your practitioner should do NAET and only NAET to keep up with the practice./p
pWe are just doing the basics of the allergies currently. However, my 9-year-old daughter was treated for cat allergies so that she could stop wheezing and sneezing at a friend's house. A few weeks after the treatment, she spent the night at this "cat house" with no asthma problems whatsoever. Amazing!/p
pOnce we treat for nuts, I plan on going back to our allergist and have my son tested once again with the Western Medicine approach of skin prick tests. That is the prudent thing to do, I believe. Our allergist is aware we are doing these treatments, and just requested that we come back for allergy testing before giving our son a peanut. /p
pOur NAET practitioner has had children with egg allergies go from a 4 on a skin prick test to a 0 after treatments. I'm hoping for the same for my son. Any improvement in his allergies would be wonderful, however./p
pI think the biggest thing that NAET has afforded us is the opportunity to not live in fear. We're not there yet, and watch everything he puts in his mouth. But just imagine if one day we wouldn't have to do that! I'll try anything safe to try to achieve that end. NAET itself sure won't hurt you or your child - and just think of the possibilities!/p

pHi All!br /
My daughter as well has now completed her naet treatments! The results are astounding!br /
We have slowly introduced peanuts to her, as directed by her practitioner. She had no allergic reaction, but didn't actually care for them. Just as well, as far as I'm concerned.br /
We will have tests done in a few months, as advised by our Dr. Before, she was a 4+. Only time will tell I guess!br /
Also I wanted to note, I recently read that western medical doctors aren't legally allowed to offer alternative medicine as an option. I remember Sara asking why her Dr. didn't say anything about naet. There's your answer! A chemotherapy patient in California was not able to get other options from his Dr. for just that reason, and thats how I learned that they are not permitted to offer such alternatives!/p

pHi everyone! I just read everyone's comments pertaining to this alternative cure. Let's try to remember that we all have something in common, the desire to become PA free. Although we may not all agree on the methods used to attain our goals, we need to respect each others beliefs and not attack. Although I have a lot of questions pertaining to this alternative method, I am very happy for those who have found success with the procedure. Thank you for al the information given, both the pros and cons. It has helped me to become more knowledgeable in the area of PA/p

pHi Klee!br /
Did you find that article in the magazine from GNC?br /
I read the same one, I think?! It states: that in most states it is illegal for medical doctors to tell their patients about all of their treatment alternatives.br /
It says that America's physicians are at risk of losing their licenses if they tell their patients that there are alternatives to allopathic treatments. It then goes on to say that the passage of the Access to the Medical Treatment Act would remedy this situation nationwide. It would allow safe non-FDA-approved alternative therapies to be provided by licensed practitioners in all states, if the patient was fully informed about the treatment and it was reasonable to expect improvement from such therapy. And it would pave the way for insurance companies and HMOs to cover such alternative treatments.br /
For more detailed information about this bill, visit the American Preventive Medical Association at [url="http://apma.net."]http://apma.net.[/url]br /
Again, perhaps this is the answer why noone's allergist has informed them of an alternative to the western method of treating allergies./p

pIt was interesting to read through this entire thread. This topic stirs emotions. We all love our children so much...we want them to be well, and we want to keep them safe./p
pMy son has peanut and tree nut allergies. I have never used NEAT. I would consider trying it, but even after treatment, I would not expose my son to peanuts./p
pMany of you on the site are very vested in the medical community. I strongly believe in Western medicine, but also believe that we cannot always wait for western medical doctors to tell us "all the answers". Western medicine is very slow to embrace new procedures. This is done to ensure that people are kept safe...unfortunately, even at that slow pace dangerous medical treatments enter the western medical marketplace. I am invested heavily in western medicine. I work for a Fortune 500 pharmacautical company that, over the years, has had to recall several drugs due to poor safety records, and sadly, some of these drugs have killed people./p
pI have used both western and alternative medicine. My personal experience with muscle testing (though not NEAT) was excellent. I had chronic heartburn for years. All western medicine offered me was daily stomach medicine. Two years ago, I had muscle testing and following a 3 month program. My stomach problems disappeared an never returned. /p
pMy position on NEAT is if there are no risks (besides the dollars spent), why not try it. If I felt my child could be harmed from the actual procedure, I doubt I would take the risk. /p
pIn terms of being advocates for our children, I often think of the movie Lorenzo's Oil (fantastic movie, if you have not seen it, rent it soon). As parents of PA kids, we all know that we have to be advocates for our children./p
pI respect the parents who chose not to try NEAT and I understand why many parents want to try to procedure. I look forward to hearing more discussion on this site. I also hope that the level of respect for differing opinions can improved. The bottom line is that we all want to help our kids, and we may not go about it in the same way. That's okay./p

pKlee, TJ PJ, Jan and Nicole (and any others with NAET treated kids),/p
pI am curious to know how your children are doing. Any reactions post treatment? Any more RAST results?/p
pWe made a decision to start our son on NAET treatments. After talking to the NAET practitioner we determined that there was NO RISK in trying. Our NAET practitioner told us our son does not have to ever touch peanuts, or other nuts. She also checked with some of her previous patients and they were willing to talk to me, and they conveyed great allergy elimination results./p
pSince my son is so young, she figured it would take 5-10 treatments so the overall cost is minimal...I would be willing to spend a lot more just for the chance of potentially eliminating this awful allergy./p
pThanks for all the posts, and please keep us updated./p

pI found this web site on peanut allergies. It contains lots of statistics. It's rather lengthy but contains a lot of interesting information. I did not check the back ground of the doctor to wrote it. One note he said on a study that I thought was interesting was that women who ate peanut butter more than once a week while pregnant tended to give the allergy to the baby. But it was also noted that most kids will out grow the allergy. Of course, there were other things that could also be related to the allergy... I don't know how much of this is true or that I wanted to believe but I still thought it was interesting and wanted to share it with everyone./p
