NAET - Reprogramming the Body to Eliminate Sensitivities NAET’s Effectiveness in the Treatment of Autism
Yolanda Ferreras Garza* & Helen Bowman
NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique), developed in 1983 by Dr. Devi Nambudripad M.D., D.C., L.Ac, Ph.D has demonstrated its effectiveness in the elimination of allergies, intolerances and a long list of conditions related to an abnormal reaction of sensitivity of the body in front of specific substances. Hundreds of thousands of people have been treated since then and have claimed that their allergy to pollens or animal hair is gone: no more runny noses, sneezing, asthma, or anaphylactic reactions to peanuts, rashes or hives. NAET is a holistic method, based upon the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, that combines acupuncture, kinesiology, allopathy, chiropractic and nutrition. The NAET hypothesis is that the presence of an opposing electromagnetic field from a substance may adversely affect the energy of the human body. This disturbance in the energy pathways leads to the symptoms associated with diseases or allergic processes. When the person is in the presence of the allergen, stimulation of areas on the back is thought to reprogram the energy pathways to tolerate the allergen and prevent allergic reactions. Expressing it in different terms, the presence of information perceived as a threat by the system (human body) produces blockages in its energy flow. These disturbances will start different physiologic defense responses like: allergies, intolerances, pain, inflammation and self-immune disorders. When blockages are removed from the system, in the presence of the information that is causing them, and when some simple rules are followed, the result is that information is no longer perceived as a threat by the body. Consequently its presence will no longer produce blockages and then the system will not start physiological defense. By adding information to the system, we reduce its tendency to chaos. Autism is a neurological disorder that is sweeping through the world at an alarming rate, currently affecting as many as 1 in every 68 children, according to 2010 statistics. In 2000, the ratio was 1 in 150. That’s a 45% increase in 10 years. At this rate, in the next 10 years, the statistics will rise to 1 in every 30 children, and 10 years after that, 1 in every 14. There is no medication that can cure autism, and the medications that are currently in force to curb some of the symptoms have side effects such as seizures, addiction, anxiety, hallucinations, depression, infections and high blood pressure. In 2005 NAET research has shown in a study to improve symptoms and autism behaviors . Approximately 88% of the children treated with NAET had their autism diagnosis removed by their own individual doctors and neurologist. The NAR (Nambudripad Allergy Research) Foundation is conducting a global study on NAET’s effectiveness in the treatment of autism on 1000-1200 autistic patients. The goal of this presentation is to describe the methods and nature of the study.
