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.

    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".
