Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique – The Principle
This article is dedicated to the principle of Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique, popularly known as NAET.
At the very outset of the article we would like to clarify that although the principle on which NAET is based sounds very scientific and promising, it is full of controversies. It is NOT accepted by majority of science communities. This article is only for the information of the reader on the subject.
NAET is an innovative, safe, effective and completely natural approach to detect and eliminate all types of allergies. It was founded in 1983 by Devi Nambudripad, DC, LAc, RN, PhD, a California based acupuncturist and physician.
The Basic Principle:
Dr. Devi Nambudripad states the basic principle as: If certain acupuncture points are stimulated when a person is in physical contact with something he is allergic to, previously blocked energy is released and the body is reprogrammed to accept the energy of the allergen; thus the body immune system no longer reacts against the ‘allergen,’ and a person is no longer allergic to a particular substance.
NAET combines techniques from Chiropractic, Kinesiology (Muscle strength) and Oriental Medicine. It basically works by clearing the allergic reaction through a reprogrammingâ€ of the brain. In this technique light acupressure is applied along the sides of the spinal column at the spot where the energy flow of a meridian intersects with the nerve roots.
Dr. Devi Nambudripad further says on the principle of the technique as follows:
When the allergen incompatible electromagnetic energy comes close to a person energy field, repulsion takes place…This causes energy blockages in the meridians. These blockages cause imbalances in the body. The imbalances cause stagnation and illness which creates disorganization in the body function. The disorganization of the body and its function involve the vital organs, their associated muscle groups and nerve roots. To prevent the allergen from causing further disarray after producing the initial blockage, the brain sends messages to every cell of the body to reject the presence of the allergen. This rejection will appear as repulsion, and the repulsion will produce different symptoms in the person like weak limbs, tiredness, aches, pains, insomnia, constipation, anger and many other such unpleasant symptoms.
