What are Nambudripads’s Allergy Elimination Techniques?
Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques, or NAET for short, are a holistic, non-invasive treatment used in eliminating food and environmental allergies permanently. It was discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad, in Buena Park, California. An acupuncturist, chiropractor, kinesiologist, and a registered nurse, Dr. Nambudripad began conducting research in 1984. Her goal was to solve physical problems, which had plagued her since birth, and help others with similar problems. Her research resulted in the development of a new and effective approach for diagnosis from various fields of medicine. NAET uses principles from Chiropractic, Kinesiology, and Oriental Medicine/Acupuncture to diagnose, or determine your allergies or sensitivities, and then properly treat them.
What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is the art and science of movement of the human body. Kinesiology is used in NAET to compare the strength and weakness of any muscle (also known as muscle response testing) of the body in the presence and absence of any substance. A measured weakness in the presence of a substance is due to the effect of an allergy/sensitivity to the item the person is touching. This simple method can be used to detect your allergens.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic techniques help us to detect the nerve energy blockages in a specific nerve pathway by detecting and isolating the exact nerve root being affected or pinched. The exact vertebral level, in relation to the pinched spinal nerve root, helps us trace the travel route, destination and target organs of that particular energy pathway. D. D. Palmer (considered the father of chiropractic) said, ” too much or too little energy is disease”. A pinched nerve can cause a derangement or imbalance of this energy flow. Chiropractic postulates that this imbalance or deranged energy flow can cause disease. This is also a two way street, in that this imbalance or derangement of nerve energy is often a result of an allergic response. Spinal manipulation directed at the specific vertebral level of the derangement of nerve energy (pinched nerve), can relieve this imbalanced energy flow and help the body to arrive at a state of homeostasis or balance.
What is Acupuncture/Oriental Medicine?
The Yin-Yang theory from Oriental Medical principles teaches the importance of maintaining homeostasis (balance) in the body. According to these 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 a disturbance in this homeostasis. Therefore diseases can be prevented, cured or improved 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 into a more perfect balance.
