What is Correct NAET?
All patients will be instructed on the importance of reading the NAET Guidebook (available at Kelly Chiropractic), to find the suitable foods and/or items to avoid during the course of their treatment. A true NAET practitioner will test your allergy with muscle response testing as shown in the NAET book, and below.
He will then treat the specific acupuncture points on the back using strong acupressure (either by hands, or with a pressure instrument), while the patient is holding the allergen in their hand, touching the sample with the pads of their fingers (see photo below).
All patients above the age of ten will then also receive acupoint stimulation (acupressure, laser, and tens) on specific points on the extremities of the body (see photo below).
Patients then relax for 15-20 minutes in the office after the treatment. At that time they are tested again for their muscle strength with the allergen in their hand. This time, if the treatment is successful, the patient’s arm should remain strong against the practitioner’s pressure. The patient is then asked to wash their hands (water only – no soap), or rub them together for one minute. Patients are instructed to avoid all contact with the allergen for which they were just treated, for 25 hours. Most of the time patients will receive a list of items to avoid. They are also advised to read the NAET Guidebook to find the suitable foods they can eat for the next 25 hours.
During the NAET treatment, the practitioner and the patient should be alone in the room to prevent electromagnetic interference. Children, friends, patient’s relatives, office staff, or animals should not be allowed in the treatment room. On the follow-up visit (anywhere from 1 day to 7 days) the practitioner re-tests the previously treated item/allergen. If the treatment was successful (the patient cleared that allergen), then the patient is no longer allergic to that substance (relapses may occur, but they are rare), and the practitioner may treat another item.
