acupuncture and allergies
When searching for a natural yet effective treatment for your allergies there are several options available. So how do you know which one is right for you? The NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique) system was discovered by Dr. Devi Nambudripad 30 years ago as she herself was dealing with several severe food allergies. It is a unique and highly effective style of treatment that can be utilized for those who are suffering from environmental allergies and food allergies/ intolerances.
NAET can successfully alleviate adverse reactions to the following:
- inhalants: pollen, grass, ragweed, cedar, flowers, perfume, animal dander
- contactants: make-up, chemicals, soaps, cats/dogs, certain fabrics
- ingestants: dairy, berries, fruits, beef, chicken, wheat, gluten
- and other environmental agents
When you have adverse reactions to certain inhalants, contactants, ingestants and other environmental agents NAET can help with the following issues:
respiratory – allergy “symptoms,” asthma, congestion, cough, and ear aches/infections
digestive – tummy aches, food allergies, constipation, diarrhea
immunity – food/airborne allergies, recurring colds/flu, recurring yeast/UTI issues, autoimmune disorders, chronic illness
emotional – ADD/ADHD, symptoms of autism/Asperger’s syn., concentration/focus issues
The treatment begins with a series of what are called “the basics”. These basics cover several very common allergies and can be treated during the first few visits. Treating the basics will usually have a marked improvement on the initial complaint. The actual NAET treatment involves stimulating specific pressure points along the spine from the neck to the sacrum while the patient is holding the particular allergen. After the treatment, specific acupressure points are then stimulated with acupuncture needles (pediatric – acu laser is used) for 20-30 minutes to stabilize the treatment. The allergen must then be completely avoided for 25 hours following the treatment. If you are not severely immune deficient, you may need just one treatment to desensitize one allergen. For more severe allergies, several treatments may be needed. NAET allows the practitioner to find the cause of your illness, and through treatment, patients have found immense relief from their allergies/sensitivities. If you are suffering needlessly with outdoor/indoor/pet allergies, or are having negative reactions toward certain foods, NAET is for you.
