Has anyone tried NAET (alternative allergy treatment)? Does it really work? Please share.
Old thread, but might have some useful things in it. From Allergy subforum:
NAET stands for natural allergy treatment. A practitioner performs muscle testing identifying if you are allergic to things while you are holding vials that supposedly contain them. Then he treats you by pressing certain points, as far as I understand.
The lady I found here is kind of untraditional, I'd say. We went for a couple of treatments in LA, and it was a big chiropractor's office. The practitioner testier us for a bunch of things and discovered my son was allergic to dairy and minerals, so he treated us for dairy and told to come back.
We have moved since then, and the only person I found here does it in a residential property kind of on the outskirts of the city. She doesn't test for what you are allergic to, but doesn't "basic" 15 treatments no matter what. It's not covered by insurance, so for 15 visits we have to pay out of pocket until she finiallY starts treating for your individual needs.
I am an NAET skeptic, but I especially refuse to lay credit when NAET supposedly treats diary allergies. According to the FARE website:
So, for me, any claim to NAET effectiveness for me would need to lie outside a childhood dairy allergy. And it is the most common "success story" I hear with this method.
"Let me see you stripped down to the bone. Let me hear you speaking just for me."
We have used it and I feel it helped with my children's rashes and tummy aches. My mom has more severe allergies (throat closing, etc.) and it has helped her a lot. I do think finding a GOOD practitioner is important. Some are better than others.
