NAET, what it is and how it can help with HG

Postby nomore » Jan 09, 2008 9:47 am

Below is a copy and pasted version of a post I posted 3 years ago. Somehow this got unstickied and I had to recreate this. Hope this helps people!

Hi All,

I have been doing NAET treatments in preparation for a future HG pregnancy. So far I have had 4 treatments and my health HAS improved. I no longer have excersie induced asthma. I was asked to post here a little on what NAET is. I am by no means an expert. This treament was recommended by my Accupunturist/Chinese Herbal DR, in addition to regular accupunture treatments.

Here is some info from the NAET website about NAET: (http://www.naet.com)

"What are Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques?
Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, also known as NAET®, are a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to eliminate allergies of all types and intensities using a blend of selective energy balancing, testing and treatment procedures from acupuncture/acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic, nutritional, and kinesiological disciplines of medicine. One allergen is treated at a time. If you are not severely immune deficient, you may need just one treatment to desensitize one allergen. A person with mild to moderate amount of allergies may take about 15-20 office visits to desensitize 15-20 food and environmental allergens. Basic essential nutrients are treated during the first few visits. Chemicals, environmental allergens, vaccinations, immunizations, etc. are treated after completing about ten basic essential nutrients. NAET® can successfully eliminate adverse reactions to egg, milk, peanuts, penicillin, aspirin, mushrooms, shellfish, latex, grass, ragweed, flowers, perfume, animal dander, animal epithelial, make-up, chemicals, cigarette smoke, pathogens, heat, cold, other environmental agents. NAET® was discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in November of 1983."

Breifly,I will try to explain WHY I am doing this for HG. It has been theorized that HG is actually an allergic reaction. To what is the question. Is HG simply a "flare" up to allergies you have all of the time, or is your body actually allergic to something in pregnancy?

So begins my journey of NAET. The testing is not invasive at all. NAET uses muscle based allergy testing. It basically involves holding a vial of a substance you are testing for and testing your muscle reposonses of weakness vs stregnth to detemine your allergies.

We found I was allergic to something things I KNEW I was allergic to and others I did not know. Sometimes its not neccesarily an ALLERGY, but simply a SENSITIVETY to something.

The accupunture based treatments involve holding the vial of the item you are treating, having a spinal massage with speical breathing, and then getting the needles to re-enforce to the elimation treatment. The massage of the spine is supposed to help the body "RESET' itself so it no longer finds an allergic response to an item. Then you do the mucle test again to see how your body reacts. It also involves avoiding the item you are allergic to for a specified period of time (no eating, touching or being near it).

I am by no means trying to sell this treatment to anyone, just simply offering up info. As many of you know I am preparing to TTC, after 2 severe rounds of HG. I do not know if this will help, or the accuputure will, as I have never tried them before TTC, or ever in my life for that matter.

Without pregnancy as a factor, these treatments HAVE helped me. So, I am hoping they may make a differnence in pregnancy. In one of the books about NAET, it talks about severe morning sickness. Some women have been allergic to horomones (which BTW, I DID show that I reacted to), some have been allergic to I think the placenta, while others were acutally allergic to the fetus it self. You can treat for each of these things both WHILE pregnant, and of corse before and after.

So, heres the info If anyone has any questions, I will do my best to answer them, but I am certainly not an expert on this!!!

I have been going to a NAET dr for two years, however, I don't think NAET did much for me in the way of HG mostly because she was not educated in it, my mom and I tried to tell her but by then it had hit so hard and fast that all she did was try to make it easier on me, which I don't know if it was her or the meds.

To be honest, I don't think it made that much of a difference but it may for you. I would try at least.
