What is an allergy?
An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity of a person to one or more substances, which may be harmless to the majority of other individuals.
What is NAET?
Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques is an innovative treatment for allergies that is completely natural, painless and non-invasive. This method can be used safely on anyone, even newborn infants and the elderly. NAET can also be used to treat healthy individuals with hidden allergies that could cause illness in the future. In addition, NAET can complement other medical therapies requiring the use of pharmaceutical drugs (e.g. antibiotics, chemotherapy, and radiation) by balancing and building the immune system to maximize healing. NAET is a solution that provides relief from adverse reactions to allergens, empowering people to live healthier, much happier lives.
How does NAET work?
NAET uses applied kinesiology (muscle response testing) to detect the kinetic imbalance in the body caused by allergens. After the allergens are identified Oriental Medical techniques are used to clear allergic reactions. This involves the stimulation of specific acupuncture points associated with the major organ systems of the body. Light pressure is applied to the points along both sides of the spine to eliminate blockages and redirect energy pathways. Allergens must then be completely avoided for 25 hours following a treatment. In most cases, one treatment is all that is needed before casual contact with the allergen can be resumed.

NAET Basic 15
The NAET Basic 15 are the essential nutrients that are needed by everyone. These are treated first in order 1 to 15 (as needed) and one mixture is typically done per visit.
Food combinations, chemicals, environmental toxins and drug sensitivities can then be treated after clearing the NAET® Basic mixtures. The basic mixtures build up the physical body and prepares it for any further toxins which may need to be expelled from the body.
Basic 15 mixtures include:
1. BBF (Brain Body Formula)
This is to balance the overall energy of the body. If the overall energy of the body is not in a balanced state, an individual can experience difficulty in clearing other allergens in the list. BBF isused on its own if needed, but all of the basic 15 are balanced with the BBF to ensure the brain and the body are in balance with each mixture.
2. Chicken/Egg Mix
Egg is the closest protein there is to the human body. We need amino acids from our diet because our body can’t synthesize them. The egg boasts all essential amino acids: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. These amino acids are present in a pattern that matches very closely the pattern the human body needs. In addition to the nine essential amino acids, there are nine other amino acids in egg.
3. Calcium Mix
Allergy to milk and dairy products causes poor absorption of calcium. Milk and other dairy products provide many essential nutrients but mainly calcium. Calcium is necessary to keep the body healthy. It helps strengthen bones and teeth, is needed for keeping nerves calm and therefore aids restful sleep. It helps regulate muscle contraction, including the heartbeat, makes sure blood clots normally, maintains the correct acid¬-alkaline balance and reduces menstrual cramps and tremors.
4. Vitamin C Mix
Vitamin C helps protect cells and keep them healthy, it is involved in the production of collagen, which maintains healthy connective tissues. It’s important for the support and structure of tissues and organs including the skin, bones and blood vessels. Vitamin C helps with wound healing and increases the amount of iron we can absorb from plant sources, such as kale, broccoli and sprouts. Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants that may protect against damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals.
5. B Complex Mix
B vitamins aid in the proper functioning of our nervous system. When our body’s B vitamin stores are depleted, it creates a condition known as “raw nerves”. Vitamin B6 is essential for normal nerve cell communication, as it plays an important role in synthesizing neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine.
B vitamins are essential for growth, development and a variety of other bodily functions. They play a major role in the activities of enzymes and proteins that regulate chemical reactions in the body which are important in turning food into energy and other needed substances. B vitamins are especially important for glucose metabolism. They usually serve as cofactors in cellular reactions utilizing glucose.
6. Sugar Mix
Sugar provides energy to your muscles and acts as a source of energy for your brain and nervous system. You also need sugar because it helps metabolize fats and prevents your body from using protein as energy and helps to transport B Vitamins around the body. Glucose, for example, gets broken down in a series of chemical reactions that give off energy, which fuels your cells.
7. Iron Mix
Iron is an important component of haemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to transport it throughout your body. Without healthy red blood cells, your body can’t get enough oxygen. If you’re not getting sufficient oxygen in the body, you’re going to become fatigued. Iron is also necessary to maintain healthy cells, skin, hair, and nails.
8. Vitamin A Mix
Vitamin A is an essential fat¬-soluble vitamin that has many diverse benefits for humans. Vitamin A promotes eyesight and helps us see in the dark; aids in the differentiation of cells of the skin (lining the outside of the body) and mucous membranes (linings inside of the body). It helps the body fight off infection and sustains the immune system and supports growth and remodelling of bone.
9. Mineral Mix
One of the key tasks of major minerals is to maintain the proper balance of water in the body. Sodium, chloride, and potassium take the lead in doing this. Three other major minerals – calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium are important for healthy bones. The minerals in our diet are essential for a variety of bodily functions. They are important for building strong bones and teeth, blood, skin, hair, nerve function, muscle and for metabolic processes such as those that turn the food we eat into energy.
10. Salt & chlorides
Salt is important to the nerves, as it stimulates muscle contraction; this will also help prevent your muscles from cramping. Salt is an electrolyte and keeps calcium and other minerals in the bloodstream. It also stimulates the adrenal glands. Salt plays a primary role in the processes of digestion and absorption. Salt activates an enzyme in the mouth called salivary amylase. At this point, the salt allows your taste buds to taste the food. Salt also plays a role in digestion by helping to break down food. Salt creates hydrochloric acid, hydrochloric acid is a very important digestive secretion, which lines the stomach walls.
11. Grain Mix
Including: whole wheat, corn, rice, oats, rye, millet, arrowroot, gluten. Common every day carbohydrate foods.
12. Yeast Mix/Candida
Includes: Bakers yeast (in bread) Brewers yeast (in alcoholic beverages) candida albicans (unbeneficial gut flora), Yeast extract. There can be an excess of yeast in the body which may need to be balanced. These foods are consumed every day by many.
13. Acid (Stomach Acid)
The role of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, along with the other gastric juices, is to break down foods and cause the release of enzymes that further aid digestion. HCl also protects the body from illness by killing parasites and bacteria commonly found on foods. There are numerous minerals that appear to be hydrochloric acid dependent, chiefly: magnesium, chromium, copper, iron, manganese, magnesium, molybdenum, selenium and zinc. Of these minerals, zinc and sodium are both responsible for the production of HCL. Deficiencies in HCL can and likely will result in the inability to utilize several vitally important minerals and nutrients. All basic mixes are checked with Stomach Acid.
14. Base (Digestive Enzymes)
Enzymes are one of the key ingredients for a healthy digestive system. Having an enzyme deficiency can be the simple explanation behind common digestive problems like constipation/diarrhoea, heartburn, bloating and IBS. Enzymes begin the digestive process in the mouth, as they are secreted by salivary glands. They work to break down starch into sugars. The next batch of digestive enzymes are encountered in the stomach, these are referred to as gastric enzymes. There are also enzymes in the pancreas, these digestive enzymes break substances down into even smaller parts than the mouth and stomach, sorting out solitary amino acids and separating fats. There are also other enzymes in the small intestine that break substances down into the simplest forms of sugar. All basic mixes are checked with digestive enzymes.
Hormones are essential for every activity of life, including the processes of digestion, metabolism, growth, reproduction, and mood control. Many hormones, such as neurotransmitters, are active in more than one physical process. Hormones are transported by the circulatory system to target distant organs to regulate physiology and behaviour.
There will be an avoidance time of typically 25 hours after treatment until you may eat or contact the treated substance. You will also need to treat your Gate Points for the first 24 hours. Typically, the frequency will be every three hours but we will let you know after the treatment. See the diagram below for instructions on treating the Gate Points.
THE GATE POINTS of N.A.E.T.
These are the classic acupuncture points that help secure the treatment into the body through the meridians. Rub (or massage with an electronic massager) each point for a count of 15 seconds. Also stimulate these points throughout the 25 hour period after the treatment to help save the treatment should you come in contact with the allergen. These points can be used any time for general meridian balancing.
1. Starting on the right hand in the fleshy section midway between the thumb and index finger rub this point for a count of 15 seconds. Large Intestine 4 (LI-4)
2. Next move to the wrist on the right arm, straight down from the little finger on the outside of the transverse crease of the wrist. Heart 7 (H-7)
3. Next, flex the elbow and find center point of inside elbow crease on the right arm, rotate 1” up of the forearm. Large Intestine 11 (LI-11)
4. 5. and 6. Next, move to the left arm and do the LI-11, then H-7, and then LI-4 each for a count of 15 seconds
(the mirror image of the points on the right arm).
7. Now go down the left leg to the inside bump of the left ankle and go up 4 finger widths directly above it and stimulate for 15 seconds. This point is often tender. Spleen 6 ( (S-6)
8. Now move to the left foot to the space between the big toe and the second toe and move up one inch and stimulate for 15 seconds. Liver 3 (L3)
9. and 10. Now go to the other foot and stimulate L-3 on the right foot and then do S-6 on the right leg in the same way as the left leg points.
11. Now finish up by going back to the fleshy section on the top of the right hand and redoing LI-4 which completes the circuit of energy in a clockwise manner around the body
