NAET Allergy Elimination

NAET (Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique) is an natural medicine technique for treating allergies and a very large wide range of health disorders relating to allergies.

As far as my observations are concerned NAET is simply a life saver.

It was founded by U.S. Chiropractor and acupuncturist who also is a medical doctor and has a PhD in acupuncture- Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad. Her technique draws on applied kinesiology, reflexology, acupuncture and radionics. 

I have met and studied with Dr. Devi Nambudripad and as far as I i am concerned she is a genious. Her techniques are effective and simple and yet sophisticate at the same time.

For quite a few years I was the Australasian presenter of her techniques and seminars. I had to eventually phase that out due to my relatively large family and extremely busy practice. However I have fond memories of what those years gave me as a practitioner.

If you search the internet there is plenty of so called scientific criticisms against NAET however that is not surprising they are made mostly by political medicine proponents to try to contain methods that are other than their own interests. These same people try to contain and eliminate all natural therapies including Chiropractic and Naturopathy and acupuncture. They try to limit the benefit of these amazing modalities


NAET was first discovered by Devi S. Nambudripad in 1983. She was a licensed chiropractor and student acupuncturist at the time; she had a violent reaction to eating some carrot, and attempted to overcome the symptoms of the reaction through a self acupuncture treatment. At first she for some reason felt an amazing sense of wellbeing like she had not experienced before- Unbeknownst to her, there was still a little bit of carrot stuck to her skin at the time. After the acupuncture treatment, she found that her carrot allergies had disappeared. She realised that her treatment on herself not only eased her symptoms but due the carrot contacting her skin she had inadvertently helped her body to adapt to the exposure of the carrot. Therafter curing herself of her carrot sensitivity. After consulting her bewildered professors, she began experimenting with the treatment on her husband and son, with similar results. She began incorporating this discovery into her acupuncture/chiropractic practice, testing her hypothesis on numerous patients, free of charge. She discovered that almost everyone she treated had many food allergies and that those allergies could be cured. She slowly developed a system that worked and that most people if following her protocol could reproduce her results. Treating them using NAET created noticeable differences in their health. NAET has grown a lot since 1983, with over 7000 world-wide practitioners by 2003 ,


What is an Allergy?


An allergy in NAET is not just the usual medical allergy but does encompass that. But it includes all sensitivities IN fact it also includes any response from the body that is less than ideal to any substance, thought, emotion or energy that the person is exposed to. Allergies can be defined as “an unusual sensitiveness of the body which causes certain people to be affected in a bad way by something usually harmless”.There are 9 general categories for allergens: Inhalants, ingestants, contactants, injectants, infectants, physical agents, genetic factors, Molds and Fungi, and Emotional Stressors. Immediate or delayed reactions to these Allergens can cause symptoms such as: However in our clinic we scan the body for reactions to other people animals electromagnetic fields emotions insects hormones inhalants ingest-ants, infectious agents (which includes viruses bacteria fungus's moulds yeasts cancers and inject-ants), colours, sounds, fabrics and contactants, and earths geopathetic stresses and directions.

Each individual is affected by different allergens, and in different ways. This can make it difficult for doctors to identify specific allergens. While sneezing is commonly caused by spring pollens, migraines may also be a reaction to the same pollens in a different person. NAET offers a quick diagnosis through NST, and eliminates  the allergies, rather than just avoiding them. According to NAET testing, almost everyone has a long list of food allergies. These allergies are apparently the cause of most human illnesses (xvi).


NAET appointments: what to expect


In preparing to have an NAET treatment, the following guidelines may be helpful:


  • Shower before arriving
  • get a drink of water
  • Eat at least a snack before being tested
  • Get enough Sleep
  • Wear minimal Jewelry
  • Wear loose, undecorated clothing
  • Bring the patient’s medical records.
  • Wash hands just prior to treatment.
  • avoid perfumes, strong deodorants, or other strong smells
  • Warn the practitioner about any previous anaphylactic (extreme allergic) reactions.


Testing for allergens requires a specific controlled environment. Only two people are allowed in the environment-the patient and the practitioner. This helps prevent interference with the patient’s electromagnetic field. No one besides the practitioner should be within 10 feet of the patient. According to NAET protocol, A NAET treatment room should have walls or curtains made of “wood, Leather, Metal, or thick plastic…Doors, windows, dividers, thin fabric, or other materials are not sufficient to prevent energy transfer from one person to another.” The walls should be at least 7 feet tall, and they should touch the floor.


Neuro-Muscular Sensitivity Testing


To detect an allergen, NAET practitioners rapidly test many substances, often using NST. NST is branch of Applied Kinesiology. It determines an allergen by comparing muscle strength before coming in contact with a potential allergen, and during contact with a potential allergen. Testing can be performed while standing, sitting, or lying down. A standard NST test measures arm strength. The tester hands the subject a glass bottle containing a potential allergen, then presses gently on their arm. If the subject’s arm successfully resists the pressure, they have immunity. However, if the patients arm does not resist the pressure successfully, they have an allergy to the substance. In this way, many different allergens can be tested quickly. NST takes a significant amount of practice to get accurate results; after completing Advance 1 training, NAET practitioners must be re-certified in NST annually for the next three years to ensure proper technique.Once detected an allergy can be treated using NAET.




According to Oriental medical principles, 'when the body is in perfect balance, no disease is possible.'. Any disturbance in the homeostasis can cause disease. Any allergen capable of producing a weakening muscular effect in the body can cause disturbance in homeostasis. Hence, diseases can be prevented and cured by maintaining homeostasis. According to acupuncture theory, acupuncture and/or Acupressure at certain acupuncture points is capable of bringing the body to a state of homeostasis by removing the energy blockages from the energy pathways known as meridians. When the blockages are removed, energy can flow freely through the energy meridians, thus bringing the body in perfect balance.


NAET treatments are designed to remove these energy blockages using the following procedure. The patient holds a glass bottle containing the allergen, and lies face down. Using acupressure techniques, the practitioner will stimulate different acupressure points on your back. They will often also stimulate different points on the front of your body using either acupressure or acupuncture. After treatment, patients will be asked to rest quietly for 20 minutes while holding a glass jar containing the allergen. During this time, patients should not read, cross their hands or feet, or touch anything with the palms of their hands. This will help prevent confusion as the body focuses only on the item treated. Lying or resting with a calm mind will be beneficial. After the treatment is completed, patients may again be tested for an allergic reaction. If they pass, they are no longer allergic to that substance. However, they still need to avoid the previously allergic substance for the next 25 hours. Then when the next treatmetn is administered the last thing to be treated is checked to see if the treatment has indeed held.


Why the 25 Hours?


According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are 12 energy meridians within the human body. These Meridians are associated with various vital organs and specific spinal nerves. These organ systems are: the lungs, large intestine, Stomach, Spleen, Heart, Small intestine, Urinary Bladder, Kidney, Pericardium, Triple Warmer, Gall Bladder, and Liver. Energy flows from one system to another, and each system is at its peak energy flow for a specific two hours every day. Therefore, because NAET reprograms the body to accept a substances energy frequency, each body system needs to experience this reprogramming. If a complete, uninterrupted energy cycle is not completed, the remaining body systems remain allergic and must be treated again. Additional exposure to the allergen being treated causes an interruption in this cycle. 24 hours is the minimum amount of time needed to complete an energy cycle. NAET recommends 25 hours as a precautionary measure. 25 hours to 7 days after a treatment, patients are retested to ensure that their entire body has been desensitized. NAET has no known side effects.



Basic NAET treatments, designed to desensitize the body, have no known side effects.(pdf egg). There are 15 basic NAET treatments, focusing on essential nutrients. After these 15 are completed, patients may focus on other treatments more specific to their situation. Like allergy shots, patients are asked to wait 20 minutes before leaving the office after being treated, though for different reasons. They are also asked to avoid the allergy treated for the following 25 hours. They can have another treatment immediately after the 25 hours if they wish. NAET practitioners usually recommend that patients stop being treated if they don’t notice any improvement after 10-15 treatments . Subsequent visits usually cost between $55 and $75 (13). This price difference probably due to the fact that an initial visit includes testing the patient’s response to a large array of potential allergens. It is unlikely that insurance companies will cover NAET treatments at this time.



Devi Namudripad had a patient who was autistic- she felt that she could help them through her methods-  and indeed she was right- since then many autistic children who were non verbal and also extremely hard to manage have talked and even gone into normal school after a series of NAET treatments.

In a study using NAET for autistic children  - "Children who received 100 twice-weekly NAET treatments for 50 allergens exhibited highly significant improvements in the area of speech, language, communication skills, and other autistic behaviors compared with the subjects in the control group who received conventional care. The children receiving NAET treatments also had marked clinical improvement, and 23 of the 30 treated children (77%) were able to be included in regular schools. This outcome provides a very encouraging measure of the degree of improvement that can be achieved in young autistic children during 1 year of NAET treatments. : A total of 56 children (NAET, 26 children; control, 30 children) completed the study. After 1 year, the children

receiving NAET treatments demonstrated significant improvements in performance compared with the control group
