NAET is based on Traditional Chinese Medical theory & practice, but does not require acupuncture needles or herbs. It is a gentle, 'hands on', non-invasive treatment approach. It is aimed at addressing what is believed to be the underlying the cause.
It is not based on treating the symptoms like taking antihistamines or steroids that may have potentially harmful side effects.
Any avoidance of offending substances is usually no longer than 25 hours after treatment for a particular allergen or group of allergic substances. Other approaches using long term avoidance can lead to an increase in sensitivity to the substance, causing a more severe reaction should further contact occur.
People of all ages & dispositions may be treated with NAET.
One minute I feel fine & the next, I feel terrible.
It seems that this question is asked by many people who enter their doctors' surgeries, seeking answers to the misery of allergic reactions. If you find yourself in this situation, then you may be familiar with the feeling of frustration and hopelessness that is associated with this condition.
The lucky patients have isolated the specific allergen/s and are able to avoid it, but for the less fortunate, the allergen either cannot be avoided without complete isolation, or it remains undiagnosed & may result in severe and chronic ailments.
Do you mean that allergies can cause real illness?
They certainly can!
When a virus attacks, an amazing defence mechanism goes into action. The struggle to rid the body of the invading virus we recognize as the symptoms of illness, such as fever, coughing, aches, vomiting, fatigue, etc. These are, in fact, signals of the battle that is going on inside the body as it tries to throw off the invading toxins producing virus. Untreated, the symptoms increase with serious results.
Similarly, continuous contact with an allergen produces toxins in the body, causing similar reactions to occur. An undiagnosed or undetected allergic condition will produce conditions that are equally serious. Many times the allergic reactions produce symptoms that mimic other conditions.
Respiratory problems like bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma, circulatory problems Like chest muscle pains, poor circulation, rapid heartbeats, heart irregularities, gastro-intestinal problems Like indigestion, acute abdominal pains, acute appendicitis, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea and ulcers, genito-urinary problems like kidney and bladder infections, prostate troubles, premenstrual syndromes and post-menstrual disorders, impotency, infertility, musculo-skeletal problems, like unexplained pains anywhere in the body, various types of headaches, backaches, arthritis, restless leg syndrome, brain symptoms like brain fog, depression, anger, attention- deficit disorders, hyperactivity, learning disorders, skin problems like eczema, boils, slow healing wounds, environmental reactions like multiple chemical sensitivity, allergy to pollens, perfumes, animal dander, carpets, building materials, etc... just about any health condition could be merely a symptom of underlying allergies. If such conditions are not diagnosed correctly, the patient may receive a treatment procedure that may further complicate the patient's condition.
