Posted on February 20, 2012 Allergy reversal can be achieved by changing the energy dynamics of the nervous system using acupuncture, detoxification, and nutrient support. Konrad Kail, ND. called his approach Natural Elimination of Allergy Treatment (NEAT) and reported that 87% of his allergy patients had good to excellent results. The NEAT protocol is an adaptation and progression from a technique called the Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET), used by many physicians in North America for the detection and elimination of allergies. This technique was developed by Devi Nambudripad, D.C, L.Ac., Ph.D., R.N. of Buena Park, California. This non-invasive method combines muscle response testing and acupuncture. With NEAT, allergens are treated in groups, each treatments based one week apart (NAET treats each allergen individually); the treatment points are the same for all patients (NAET uses varying points); the functional integrity of the body’s membranes (“ barrier function”) is assessed and treated before desensitization, (NAET does not address this); computerized electric dermal screening analyzes sensitivities, (NAET uses muscle testing); and samples of suspected allergens are collected from the patient’s living environment (NAET doesn’t do this). A patient’s potential allergy reactions to up to 6,500 different foods and substances (even supplements and medications) are assessed, being retained as computerized energy imprints in the EDS device. Patients also bring in samples of suspected allergens from their living environment: contents of a vacuum cleaner bag; dirt and lawn samples from their yard; perfumes, toothpaste, and soaps used; household detergents, disinfectants, and cleaning agents. The EDS equipment is then used to test the patient sensitivity to these everyday items. Dealing with “barrier functions” is a key factor to successful allergy elimination. One must have mucous membranes that are moist and effective, skin that is intact and free of lesions, and a digestive system that works properly. If not, you will resensitize to old allergenic foods, despite treatment. In other words, if your barrier function is not working properly, you will become sensitive (allergic) to foods and substances.
