Using alternative treatments, such as acupuncture, nutritional, chiropractic and allopathy, NAET practitioners treat allergies without using drugs, chemicals or invasive treatments. NAET practitioners complete training using the system from Dr. Davi Nambudripad, but are independent medical practitioners who may integrate different methods into their practice, according to NAET.
Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, developed in 1983, consists of kinesiological disciplines of medicine, selective energy balancing and testing,and treatment using acupuncture or acupressure. NAET methods desensitize patients to allergens from food and environmental agents. However, Dr. Nambudripad encourages potential patients to research the methods before finding an NAET practitioner, says NAET.
Allopathy is the study of energy distribution of the spinal nerves. Studying this system, for NAET practitioners, allows an understanding of how negative and positive energy distributes through the nerve roots. Kinesiology, the study of body movement, helps NAET practitioners detect allergies by seeking the strengths and weaknesses of muscles with substances present, such as allergies. Undiagnosed food allergies lead to conditions such as indigestion and bloating, according to NAET.
Patients experiencing mild to moderate allergies may only need one treatment visit per allergy, with each allergy treatment occurring independent of the others. The first few visits with NAET practitioners focus on treating nutrients. After 10 nutrient treatments, other treatments begin for allergens, such as vaccinations, chemicals, environmental allergens and immunizations, states NAET.
