So I started NAET therapy at the recommendation of my dietician who is certified to practice it. She wanted to see if it will clear up some of my other emerging sensitivities and thought I'd be a good candidate. Not sure if it'll work but I'm trying to keep my mind open to see if I'll feel better. Anyway, I decided to try to do some research on NAET therapy and Celiac disease and I found the most ridiculous blog I've ever seen in my life...I got some chuckles out of it and I'm hoping that you guys will too...

"In 2005 or so I was diagnosed by stool test as positive for Celiac. The symptoms I had at the time were feelings of early fullness when eating and constipation, as well as anxiety and overall poor health. I went on a gluten free diet which improved my symptoms almost immediately. Was on this strict gluten free diet for 3 years until I came across an alternative energy-based treatment for allergies called NAET. (naet.com.) Ive talked about NAET in a previous post. After several treatments for a wide array of allergens I was re-tested by muscle testing and found to be free of the gluten intolerance. Not scientific proof per say, but I started eating gluten again and was free of the symptoms I had in the past.

Ive been eating gluten for a few years again now and just recently had an endoscopy for some other stomach problems Ive been having. They took a biopsy (tissue sample) and tested for Celiac and H.pylori. They both came back NEGATIVE. So to recap, in 2005 a stool test showed positive for Celiac and in 2009, just this past month, I had a biopsy that was negative for Celiac. Proving that Celiac is NOT an incurable disease, but a curable one!"


A STOOL SAMPLE?? YOU WERE DIAGNOSED WITH CELIAC FROM A STOOL SAMPLE????? I feel bad laughing but this is just ridiculous...needless to say my fingers started flying and I provided her some education regarding the truth about Celiac diagnosing. I don't know whether she misunderstood or her doctor was an idiot (neither would surprise me) NAET didnt cure your Celiac sweetie, you just never had it to begin with....(head smacks desk) Uggh.

Or, she has it and the biopsy missed it.

Or, she's ncgs.

Or, she had a leaky gut.

Gee, wonder what those "other" stomach problems are...?

Yeah, I love some of the stuff out there about gluten. Frightening.

She probably tested originally through Enterolab, which can detect a gluten intolerance but can not diagnose Celiac.

Muscle testing proving she doesn't have gluten intolerance or Celiac? These poor people who throw so much money at these "cures".

I find these things rather sad, not funny.

I, too, find these types of "medical scams" sad.

People in pain will try anything to get well. (I know, I was one of them)

There is no scientific or medical evidence that NAET or muscle testing or hair analysis etc. will "diagnose, cure or treat" anything at all. I saw one Pub Med article about one case of NAET, but the evidence is weak. It concluded "This case report highlights the possible benefit of NAET for children with food allergy. Randomized clinical trials should be encouraged to study the effectiveness of NAET in treating food allergy."

"possible" benefits.

There are no clinical trials reported.

If you have concerns or questions about any diagnostic method, you may wish to contact the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI).

Here is a list of questionable "allergy testing" methods.

My mother is a smart lady with a degree in Psychology and an MBA.

She has done NAET.

She thinks it helped, for a short while. She has tried everything EXCEPT getting proper thyroid antibody tests (she's hypo), vitamin panels, and a Celiac panel.

She willingly eats around foods that bug her (and it's weird what gets her...leaky gut I'm sure); but claims eating gluten-free is too inconvenient.

She has horrible back and hip pain, urgent bm's, terrible allergies.

She keeps going to a quack Chiro who keeps doing quack things. The redeeming factor is at least the massages work well.

How can a smart person be so dumb??

I hope she doesn't lurk here.

If she did have celiacs, why would she be shouting "Eureka! I'm cured!" if she's having the symptoms again after going back to gluten? A gluten-free diet cured her of her ailments, she went back to gluten, and now she's having medical problems again. Duh?

Yeah, I find it sad too. I was on the other side of it years ago when even my doctors didn't know what to do with me. I saw a Kinesiologist, on the advice of my sister, who did muscle testing on me and "identified" several food intolerances. Interestingly, "wheat, oats, barley, and rye" were among those. I followed his advice, which also included eliminating sugars, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, a few other things--and took the expensive supplements he "prescribed".

I didn't see much of a difference--of course a few of the supplements contained gluten. This was a couple years before I was diagnosed. If I knew then what I know now.....

I know a few people who have been helped by NAET, but after my personal experience, I wouldn't put much stock in it.

Would you call that a "diagnosis"? really? I would call that
"forensic analysis"...but why split hairs? ;)

And you know full well I was talking about diagnosing food allergies and specifically, in that context.... you little scamp. :P
