What is an allergy?
An allergy is a condition of abnormal sensitivity of a person to one or more substances (allergens) which would be harmless to the majority of other people. People can be allergic to a variety of substances including food, drinks, medication, materials, chemicals, and the external environment.
What happens in the body in the presence of an allergen?
- From a convection medical perspective, an allergy is an overreaction of the immune system. In the presence of an allergen, the immune system will mobilize its resources resulting in an extreme inflammatory response.
- In Chinese medicine, an allergic substance causes blockages in the energy pathways of the body called meridians. The normal flow of energy of ‘qi’ is then disrupted which causes imbalances in the organs which are connected by the meridians.
What is NAET?
Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques are based on the holistic perspective of allergies. NAET is a non-invasive, painless and safe treatment to eliminate allergies of all types and intensities and can be done on people of any age group. It is based on treatment principles from allopathic medicine, acupuncture/acupressure, chiropractic, kinesiology, homeopathy and nutrition.
Dr. Nambudripad gives an analogy that describes this well. Start with two identical tomato plants that are planted in two different locations. A storm comes along and a stone falls on one plant. This causes it not to grow as well as the other plant. A gardener comes by and removes the stone which leads to normal growth of the plant again. The stone is the allergen and in performing NAET treatments, the doctor is the gardener.
Examples of allergies eliminated by NAET include peanuts, eggs, milk and grass.
How are allergies treated conventionally?
Conventional treatments for allergies include anti-histamines, steroids or allergy shots which only control symptoms and have short-term effects.
How is the NAET treatment administered?
Depending on the severity of your immune deficiency, only one treatment to desensitize one allergen may be needed or a series of treatments may be necessary to desensitize many allergens. Allergens are treated one at a
time. Therefore, many allergens will be treated over a series of office visits. Allergens are cleared in a specific sequence, with basic essential nutrients treated initially, followed by chemicals and environmental allergens.
Acupressure is used on kids or those who are not comfortable with acupuncture needles. The substance must be avoided for 25 hours after treatment.
