Naet Treatment - Had Anyone Heard Of Or Tried It?

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.

    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!
