NAET, (Nambudripad’s Allergy EliminationTechnique)
Is a totally new way of treating allergies and has its roots in Chiropractic and Acupuncture. Dr. Devi Nambudripad developed this technique after years of food allergies and while she was studying acupuncture. She discovered that a person who was stimulated in certain acupuncture points when in the presence of the allergen could be cleared of the allergy after a 25 hour avoidance time. Dr. Devi has now been refining and teaching this technique for over 20 years and it is now practiced worldwide.
The definition of ‘allergen’ in this technique is: anything that the body feels it needs to defend against. This can be due to a physical allergy such as poison ivy, a chemical allergy (ie: lactose intolerance) or an emotional allergy (ie: when the parents were yelling, the child was eating a banana).
Diagnosis of these allergies is by kinesiology, or muscle testing; a technique developed by Dr. George Goodhart. Here, the patient places a glass vial in his or her hand and Dr. Ford tests the arm muscle of the other arm. If this is not possible, as in the case of the elderly, babies or injured, Dr. Ford uses herself as a surrogate and the patient simply needs to place their hand on her arm. After the allergen is identified, certain acupuncture and chiropractic points along the spine are stimulated by her thumbs. Then points on the arms and legs are stimulated with a small hand held massager and the patient is asked to relax for 15 minutes. After the 25 hour avoidance period, they are rechecked.
