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.
