NAET “Allergy” Elimination Technique
What is NAET?
Did you know that many ailments and conditions – such as the common cold, arthritis, migraines, constipation, eczema, infertility, anxiety, behavioral disorders and much more – are the result of undiagnosed allergies or intolerances? When left untreated, intolerances can escalate and become serious chronic illnesses. Luckily, there’s a solution. Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique, or NAET®, is a non-invasive, drug free, natural process that eliminates “allergies” of all types.
By combining Eastern and Western healing practices such as acupuncture, allopathy, chiropractic, nutrition, and kinesiology, NAET® works to re-program your negative neuroimmune response toward an offending substance, shifting it to a more appropriate response whenever your body comes into contact with that substance in the future.
How does it work?
To identify and eliminate your body’s negative response to a substance, NAET® uses a process called Muscle Response Testing (MRT). We start by testing the “Basic 15” – a group of nutrients that are essential to the body’s ability to maintain balance. If these aren’t treated first, you won’t heal from the ‘ground up.’ The Basic 15 are building blocks to restoring your immune system and central nervous system functioning.
Every body is different. Some people may need treatment for just one or two substances in the Basic 15, while others may need to be treated for all 15. For most people, it only takes one session to overcome a sensitivity, but for more severe sensitivities, it could take several sessions to see full healing. Ultimately, it depends on the severity of the sensitivity and the body’s strength to heal – and that’s different for everyone.
We treat one offending substance at a time over a series of weekly appointments. The basic essential nutrients are treated first, followed by other, more specific substance your body may be reacting to. These can include anything from chocolate to environmental toxins, from seasonal allergies to pet allergies, from vaccinations to plastic, from food additives to phenols and sulfates, from mold to emotional blockages. Whatever your body has a negative reaction to, there’s a good chance we can remedy that reaction through NAET®.
Migraine headaches, Julie
NAET has been such a blessing to me and my family. For more than 10 years I would get frequent migraines, complete with an aura, nausea, and light/sound sensitivity – the kind that put me on the couch for at least a day, with a “headache hangover” the next. After completing NAET’s Basic 15 and then working on items specific to my needs, Jenna was able to identify and treat me for several migraine triggers. I’m so delighted to be able to say it has now been months since I had even a bad headache, let alone a migraine! I’m very thankful for the dedication and compassion of Dr. Boggess, Jenna, and the staff at Natural Balance.
After NAET treatments my eczema is gone! I spent my lifetime going to dermatologists, eliminating common skin irritants, and avoiding many foods. This only made the rash tolerable at best. Last year I was determined not to put any more cortisone on my skin or take any more Benadryl for the itching. After trying everything, I was skeptical to try NAET. Without shots, creams, or pills, how could this possibly cure me? Well, after only 6 treatments it was clear that this was working. I am now eczema free.
Chronic headaches, stomachaches, and nausea, Sophie
I started taking my 10 year old daughter in for NAET because she was having chronic headaches accompanied by stomach aches and nausea. These symptoms affected her daily life and her ability to play with other children. With Traditional Medicine doctors, she was sent for many tests, given different diet plans to follow, and given pain medicine for the discomfort. After the Basic 15 and a few additional treatments focusing on digestive enzymes and sugar digestion, she was free of headaches, stomachaches, and nausea. Now she does not have to avoid any foods or common allergens and hasn’t needed any pain relievers. She has remained symptom free since the treatments ended almost 1 year ago.
Aggressive behavior and anxiety, Trent
To be honest, when I heard about NAET I thought it sounded pretty strange. My husband and I read Dr. Devi’s book “Say Goodbye to Allergies” and decided to give it a try for our 9 year old son. For years he had a lot of aggression and irritability, anxiety and very labile mood. We had no idea if he was having reactions to food or anything else; we just knew we needed to try something else. We started treating for the NAET Basics with Jenna and things went very slow at first…hard to tell if NAET was helping, but we stayed with it. Towards the end of the Basics we started seeing huge improvements in his mood and ability to tolerate foods without any negative reaction. We’ve completed several additional treatments since the Basics and now the “norm” for him is a pleasant mood, no anxiety, aggression or irritability…except on the rare occasion when he’s reacting to something and I am usually able to figure out what that is. We have more work we would like to do with NAET in order to clear some additional food sensitivities and to help with his attention/focus but we can now say that NAET absolutely works.
Seasonal allergies, Maria
My 14 year old daughter old suffered from seasonal allergies. The Allergist recommended that we start allergy shots immediately and we left the office with an EpiPen for emergencies. I searched for alternative treatments and found NAET at Natural Balance Wellness Center. During the Basic NAET treatments her symptoms lessened and once we completed the treatments all of her symptoms were gone. She has remained allergy free for the past two allergy seasons.
Dairy sensitivity, Isaac
My son had low energy and stomach upsets due to food sensitivies. Through NAET muscle testing, Jenna helped pinpoint which substances were causing him distress and we totally cleared him of dairy reactivity. He is able to eat dairy now without symptoms.
After 6 years of dealing with infertility, I began to see Jenna for a couple of months. We worked on multiple hormone treatments and even treated for emotional blockages. Soon after our last treatment, I became pregnant. I highly recommend NAET as part of a fertility plan for women.
Can NAET® help me?
A unique aspect of NAET® is that it is potentially helpful for many situations. The same process works just as safely for elders and adults as it does for pregnant women, young children, and newborns. If your health condition has developed from any type of neuroimmune intolerance, no matter how long you have been sick or how old you are, NAET® can potentially assist you.
Jenna Wunder, MPH, RD, has experienced NAET® being helpful are the following conditions and counting:
Migraines & headaches
Arthritis/achy muscles & joint
ADD/ADHD Sleep disturbances/fatigue
Autism spectrum disorder/behavioral disorders
Newborn feeding and breastfeeding issues/ birth trauma
Food/environmental allergies & sensitivities
Hay fever and seasonal allergies
Irregular menstrual cycles

Jenna’s Experience with NAET
My first experience with NAET® was unrelated to my career. It was personal. I was having extreme difficulty breastfeeding my newborn son – he was obviously reacting to my breast milk. Day after day he would refuse to nurse, and even the position of nursing made him cry and arch away. I didn’t know what foods I was eating that he was reacting so negatively to. He also had ‘reflux’ and wasn’t gaining weight adequately. I saw almost every lactation consultant in town and it seemed that none of their advice was helping us in a significant way.
Thank goodness a trusted friend recommended NAET®! NAET® saved us. Soon my son was treated for calcium, citrus, soy, dairy, gluten, etc. Our breastfeeding relationship slowly, but surely, improved. My NAET® practitioner said 99.99% of women would have given up in my situation. NAET® allowed me to persevere and succeed. Now, almost four years later, I am a breastfeeding advocate and my son does not have food sensitivities.
My background as a registered dietitian allowed me to qualify for NAET® professional training. I am grateful to be a NAET® practitioner. I have found passion in my career and thoroughly enjoy my work helping patients (friends really) who are in difficult situations in their lives.
