Allergy/NAET Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "What are allergies?"
When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called meridians. Thought about in another way, it disrupts the normal flow of energy through the body’s electrical circuits. This energy blockage causes interference in communication between the brain and body via the nervous system. This blocked energy flow is the first step in a chain of events which can develop into an allergic response.
The standard treatment is drug therapy using either antihistamines or steroids to control allergic symptoms. Unfortunately, this does not correct the underlying problem, and often the allergy sufferer experiences serious long term side effects.
The most effective treatment option until now has been complete avoidance of the offending allergen(s). This can be difficult and in some cases impossible. Now, however, there is an alternative... NAET, Nambudripad`s Allergy Elimination Techniques.
Yes. By testing and treating with the Nambudripad`s Testing Techniques(NTT)! This revolutionary approach is particularly relevant for dealing with allergies, one of the most stubborn health problems facing mankind today. It is a natural, drugless, painless, non-invasive method that can be used safely on a newborn infant, on the elderly, even on a healthy person to treat hidden allergies that could cause disease in the future. It can be used on pets, invalids, children, even patients in a coma. NAET® can reduce or eliminate allergies to the items cleared by this method.
With this technique, allergens are cleared (treated) one at a time, in a specific order. The good news is that following the prescribed formula, allowing for the 25-hour avoidance of the treated substance, one session is all it usually takes to reduce/clear an allergy. Highly sensitive individuals may require additional "combination" clearings.
Dr. Devi Nambudripad's home website (www.NAET.com) boasts "80-90% of the patients treated thus far by NAET have experienced complete relief from their allergic symptoms to the items for which they have been treated. Most of them report that contact with previously troublesome foods or environmental substances no longer cause adverse effects." In our clinic, we find similar results, however some patients do better with their symptoms but still have to avoid certain foods/items.
The total length of the treatment program varies greatly from one individual to another, depending upon the number of specific allergies, and the overall intensity of the allergic condition. It may take anywhere from 10 to 40 visits, depending on your condition, to note significant results. For best results, usually just one allergen (or one group of closely related allergens) should be identified and treated per office visit.
Q. "Can allergies cause real illness? Serious illness?
They certainly can. When a virus attacks, this sets off a struggle, to rid the body of the invading virus and the symptoms. Fever, coughing, aches, fatigue, vomiting, etc. are signals that the body is trying to throw off the invading virus and its toxins. Untreated, the symptoms increase, usually with serious results.
Similarly, continuous contact with an allergen produces toxins in the body, causing similar reactions to occur. An undiagnosed or undetected allergic condition will produce conditions that are equally serious. Many times, the allergic reactions produce symptoms that mimic other conditions. Just about any health condition can be a symptom of underlying allergies. If such conditions are not diagnosed correctly, the patient may receive a treatment procedure that could further complicate and worsen his or her¡¦s condition.
In their mildest form, allergies may be mere nuisances. But for some people with severe allergies, accidental contact with a particular allergen may produce terrifying symptoms, almost as though the person had swallowed poison. In either case diagnosis is not simple, but usually the milder the complaint, the harder it is for the patient to get effective treatment.
For example, how do you get proper diagnosis and treatment for "feeling out of sorts?" For a slight loss of memory or occasional mental confusion? For a slight but persistent sore throat, cough, or backache? For a tingling feeling in the hands and arms that cannot be diagnosed by a neurologist? Some of these unfortunate people have seen so many physicians, so many times, that they eventually are labeled incorrectly as hypochondriacs, when, in fact, they are people with genuine health problems.
