Hi. I'm 34 year old male and I suffer from same problems for years.
I got these very serious allergies on most everything connected with dust or pollen.
You can't imagine how much problems can this cause to one person. On spring and summer my allergy gets worse.
I get some very serious symptoms like difficulties in breathing, generalized skin rush and swelling of extremities.
I tried several medications for allergy but none of them could help me so I'm desperate for help of any kind.
That’s why I would like to find out something about some new type of treatment called NAET.
Maybe NAET could help me or is it just another scam?
Well I can tell you a few things that NAET enthusiasts claim about this kind of treatment.
NAET is abbreviation for Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques.
Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques are a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to eliminate allergies of all types and intensities using a blend of selective energy balancing.
I don’t know what to say about this because I personally don’t believe in this.
They also include testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine.
It has some big faults like, Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET) is based on the fact that allergies are caused by "energy blockage" that can be diagnosed with muscle-testing and permanently cured with acupressure and/or acupuncture treatments.
You are aware that this couldn’t be 100 percent sure, but, like I say earlier, it is completely invasive so you can try it and see for your self.
Thank you very much for this post. I also suffer from severe and dipiliting allergys. My allergies are mostly sinus realated where I either have a runny or stuffy nose, sneeze extremly frequently and multiple times in a row, and sometimes have sinus preasure all over my head. I am desperate to get treatment and ulitimatly relief from my allergies and there debiliting symptoms. I have heard about NAET treatment and am considering getting it. However, I have also heard of another kind of I suppose you could say similar treatment called Advanced Allergy Therapeutics. Both of these treatments say they permanently eliminate allergies, so I would really like to know the difference between the two, how they compare and if perhaps one is works better than the other. Thank you.
Thank God for a couple in our church who told us about NAET. I knew I didn't want to use long term topical steroids, and I REALLY wanted an all natural remedy which meant there would be no side effects. Yes, all natural remedies do take longer to take effect and see the difference, but it is so worth it. If NAET works for my guys, with their skin which many people, including the pediatrician described as "the worst they had every seen", I know this treatment can and will work for anyone. You MUST have an open mind, nothing everything in the treatment makes "sense", you should read the book before you start treatment, and BE PATIENT. These problems didn't start overnight, and they will not do away overnight.
However, I am curious about NAET..so I am going to try it.
For a brief look at this particular SCAM please read this Hoax Forum thread.
Of course, the supporters of Devi S. Nambudripad will claim that anyone making a response like mine is somehow involved in a conspiracy or is working for "big pharma" or any one of a number of organisations who are out to rubbish the good name of nurse Devi.
You be the judge of that.

Fifty years ago to cure you of your sinus allergies was to damage you permanently... Western medicine doesn't know everything and they have a long way to go before they do. I don't knock them, just don't take everything that they say for face value. The ones that want to help though are often afraid of being sued, and will try to shy away from anything that isn't going to be covered by insurance.

Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET) Stephen Barrett, M.D.
Dr. Barrett makes some basic observations from nevi's own book that should give any discerning person, at least, cause for concern.
Taking "almost 30 aspirin a day" is likely to cause extremely severe side effects. The adult aspirin pill contains 5 grains (325 mg), so 30 would contain 9750 mg or 9.75 grams. Doses above 4 grams per day are likely to cause ringing in the ears, dizziness, increased breathing rate, and serious metabolic imbalances. High doses can also cause severe stomach upset and a tendency toward abnormal bleeding. Death has been reported from single doses of 10-30 grams .
Allergies occur to proteins, not to vitamins, minerals, or sugars. It is possible to be allergic to eggs, fish, and or milk, but the claim that she was allergic to vitamins A, C and B-complex (a total of 10 out of the body's 13 vitamins!), calcium, and sugars is absurd.
A diet consisting of rice and broccoli would contain no vitamin B12 and inadequate amounts of iron, protein, and several other nutrients. Curiously, it would be very high in vitamin C and high in vitamin A, both of which Nambudripad says she was allergic to.
"Emotional allergies" can arise when people have unpleasant experiences connected to eating specific foods [3:23].
This is a description from Devi's website on using the "technique" on animals.
When used with animals, as with human infants, a human acts as the intermediary between the physician and the patient.
The surrogate extends one arm and places the other hand on the patient.
Various substances contained in glass vials are placed on the patient by the surrogate.
While the vial is held against the patient, the practitioner applies downward pressure against the surrogate's extended arm, meanwhile,
the surrogate attempts to resist this pressure.
If a sensitivity to a substance is detected, the arm will go weak and the surrogate will be unable to resist the pressure being applied.

Proponents of NAET also claim to perform sessions remotely.
You don't have to be with the practitioner!
James Randi has done a very nice expose of the AK "technique" in a video.
James Randi Tests Crystal Power and Applied Kinesiology
Notice how the UK crystal "healer" gives all sorts of excuses for failing this very basic test of her powers at using AK.
She laughs nervously as you might expect.
Now I've developed more allergies and I'm intending to go back for more.
I don't think it's a scam. My son and I have both suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for over twelve months. Western medicine would have us believe that it's not curable, even though the cause is not entirely clear - it's just not good enough for me. We were told we just have to learn to adjust our newer, slower lifestyle and accept our fate and not to 'run around wasting energy trying to find a cure'. Frankly, I would wave a dead fish over my head, in the nude, chanting jibberish if it worked! We went to our Naturopath, who has reliably 'cured' us of other incurable conditions before - who treated us using NAET and low and behold - we are cured of all symptoms. Don't tell me it's a scam, I don't believe that kind of negativity - that's worse than western medicine! Like anything, be open-minded, take responsibility for your own health, make informed choices, and don't believe all the nay-sayers either!
