Naet Treatment - Had Anyone Heard Of Or Tried It?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am getting ready to go through this allergy elimination therapy called NAET developed by Devi S. Nambudripad, M.D. (WI), D.C., L.Ac., Ph.D. (acu.). Has anyone else heard of this or tried it? I have only recently been diagnosed with gluten sensitivity. I would be interested to see how you all would react to an idea like this treatment.

I have two links for you (although I'm sure there are more...) One is a quick description on a practitioner's site and the other is the official website. Would love to hear feedback, thanks.

It's bunk. Here's an article I got from quackwatch.org.

Even if there were something to this, you've been diagnosed with sensitivity not an allergy.

A friend of mine had the Naet treatment and was told she was cured of her gluten sensitivity years ago. She continued to suffer with ill health, but believed candida was the only problem and after many years of doctors and treatments was retested to be told she is still gluten sensitive.

According to what is written on Celiac, gluten sensitivity is not curable at this time. Hopefully one day they will come up with something.

take care, Nin

I have heard of it, and actually went to a few sessions. I did this because these other ladies at my clinic reccomended it to me because they had been "cured" of their allergies, and they thought this could help mine, and my gluten intolerance. I only went to like 5 sessions, which hadn't gotten to the gluten part, but it just seemed to good to be true, and I wasn't noticing ANYTHING. I don't know what to say about it because I know so many people that stand by it...

Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease, not an allergy or a food "sensitivity". It can and does kill people. It's as serious as diabetes, MS, and lupus, among other diseases. I wouldn't take a chance on any treatment for this other than the prescribed medical one.

I think that a lot of the misconception is that people think it is a "food allergy" when it is not. As stated earlier, IT IS A "AID". I work in a hospital, one that is to be in the top 10-20 in the nation. There are 3 GI groups and they have admitted that they know absolutely NOTHING about Celiac Disesase or Gluten intolerance other than the strict diet. That is putting their words nicely.

I have one GI doctor that I have fired several times. He is from England and seems to know a little more than the others. He told me in February that I would not be around in 3 yrs if I did not straighten up and stick to a strick gluten-free diet.

I would much rather have a food allergy than this. It would be very nice if this could be made more public. I've been speaking to people at the hospital about awareness, trying to get it out there.

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
