Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "How do I know if NAET is for me?"

A. If you are a patient and would like to find out if NAET could help with your condition, you should read the book, “Say Goodbye To Illness” by Devi S. Nambudripad, M.D. (WI), D.C., L.Ac., Ph.D. (Acu). The book is available from our office. If you suffer from any allergic condition (food, chemical, environmental, emotional allergies) or if your health condition has developed from any allegy, no matter how long you have been sick, or how old you are (we have treated patients aged between 3 days old to 96 years old), NAET can help you. Please read the book to find a case history similar to yours . After reading the book, if you would like to begin NAET treatments, please contact this office. You may need numerous NAET treatments before you begin to feel better if your condition is serious, you have a poor immune system, or if you have been sick a long time.

Q. "Do you mean that allergies can cause real illnesses?"

A. They certainly can! When a virus attacks, an amazing defense mechanism goes into action. The struggle to rid the body of the invading virus we recognize as the symptoms of illness, such as fever, coughing, aches, vomiting, fatigue, etc. These are, in fact signals of the battle that is going on inside the body as it tries to throw off the invading toxins-producing virus. Untreated, the symptoms can increase 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. Respiratory problems like bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma, circulatory problems like chest muscle pains, poor circulation, rapid heartbeat, heart irregularities, gastrointestinal problems like indigestion, acute abdominal pains, acute appendicitis, bloating, constipation, diarrhea and ulcers, genitourinary problems like kidney and bladder infections, prostate troubles, pre-menstrual syndromes and post menstrual disorders, impotency, infertility, musculoskeletal problems like unexplained pains anywhere in the body, various types of headaches, backaches, arthritis, restless leg syndrome, brain symptoms like brain fog, depression, anger, attention-deficit disorders, hyperactivity, learning disorders, skin problems like eczema, boils, slow healing wounds, environmental reactions like multiple chemical sensitivity, allergy to pollens, perfumes, animal dander, carpets, building materials, etc—just about any health condition could be merely a symptom of underlying allergies. If such conditions are not diagnosed correctly, the patient may receive a treatment procedure that may further complicate the patient's condition.

Q. "Then my symptoms a real? I am not just imagining them?"

A. No, you are not imagining them. Allergies in their mildest forms are merely nuisances. But for some people, accidental contact with an allergen can produce terrifying toxins in the body that result in clearly diagnosed illness just as though that person had taken a poison.

Diagnosis for either in not easy, but the milder the complaint, the harder it is for the patient to get good treatment.

For instance, how do you treat a person for "feeling out of sorts, for a slight loss of memory, for a slight but persistent sore throat or cough, for a nagging, dull headache that does not respond to pain medications, for a persistent backache or a tingling feeling in the arms and hands that cannot be diagnosed by a neurologist?" Some of these unfortunate people have seen their physicians so many times that they cannot tell you how many times they have been ignored, diagnosed as suffering from a "nervous disorder" or been labeled a hypochondriac.

Q. "What are allergies?"

A. Medical scientists are still researching to find the exact cause and nature of allergies, but may not have all the answers for years to come. From a Western medical point of view, allergy is an over-reaction by the immune system. In NAET, allergies are viewed from a holistic perspective, based on Oriental Medical principles. An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity of one person to one or more substances which may be harmless to the majority of other individuals. In the allergic person, the allergic substance, known as an allergen, is viewed by the brain as a threat to the body's wellbeing. Therefore, for our purposes, an allergy is defined in terms of what a substance does to the energy flow in the body. When contact is withwhat truly is an an allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called meridians, or we can say, 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 blodked energy flow is the first step in a chain of events which can develop into an allergic response. Allergies are the result of energy imbalances in the body, leading to a diminished state of health in one or more organ systems.

Q. "What can I do about my allergies?"

A. Until recently there has been no satisfactory method for treating allergies. Desensitization using injections of allergic substances over a period of months or even years has been the standard approach used by medical allergists. This approach will give some people an improvement for some allergies, but in many cases it does not do the job, especially with food allergies. Another standard treatment has been to use antihistamines and/or steroids to control allergic symptoms, but these often have serious long-term side effects and do not correct the underlying problem. The most effective option before NAET has been complete avoidance of the offending allergen(s). This can be difficult at best, and impossible in some cases. Now, however, there is an alternative.

NAET is a natural, drugless, painless, and non-invasive method which can be used safely on individuals of any age (infants to the elderly) and regardless of the individual's health. Allergies and their symptoms can be eliminated through NAET.

Allergens are cleared (treated) one at a time with this technique, and best results are obtained if allergens are cleared in a specific sequence. Normally only one item (or small group of related items, such as B Complex vitamins) is treated on a given day. The substance must then be completely avoided for 25 hours following the treatment. In most cases that's all it takes—one session to eliminate an allergy. Individuals who are highly sensitive may sometimes require additional combination clearings.

Q. "Do you mean there is a treatment for my health problems?"

A. Yes. At last there is freedom available from allergies and ailments arising from allergies. Dr. Nambudripad's knowledge of Eastern and Western medicine gave her the insights and guided her to the discovery of this unique treatment method to overcome her own serious allergic reactions to foods. Her own story is an amazing one, which is appropriate for the discoverer/developer of such a revolutionary technique. She tells her story in the book, Say Good-bye To Illness. It contains fascinating case histories of various health disorders, as well as some of the theoretical basis for the technique and her story of its discovery. It is recommended reading for anyone wanting to find relief from their allergies, and for anyone with a chronic health problem, large or small.

Q. "Do I really need to avoid allergens for 25 hours after treatment?"

A. Dr. Nambudripad has received numerous inquiries about the "25 hour avoidance" of the allergen after the NAET treatment. As mentioned in the Guide Book (companion to Say Good-bye To Illness), some patients may get through the treatment sooner, but the patient still should avoid the allergen for 25 hours if possible. In our experience, patients who observe the "25 hour avoidance" receive the maximum benefit from the treatment and have the least likelihood of needing additional treatments for the allergen.
