Nambudiprad’s Allergy Elimination Technique, or NAET is an energetic method of identifying and treating individual allergens with the combined use of chiropractic and acupuncture. Learning, understanding and using NAET effectively takes time to cultivate. It’s considered by some as a fringe, or alternative modality and thus, very few practitioners throughout the world utilize it for animals. I however, have found it to be very successful in identifying and treating individual food and/or environmental allergens.

When using NAET, the allergen identification process is performed through muscle testing, however when working with animals (or human infants), a surrogate is used. The surrogate is most often the animal’s guardian, a person with whom the animal is closely bonded and connected

During the allergen identification process, the surrogate holds a small glass vial of an allergen sample that consists of water and the allergen’s energetic vibration. The vial is then placed and held on the back of the animal’s neck without losing contact. Muscle testing is then performed while the surrogate holds the vial on the animal with one hand, and extends their free arm toward the practitioner. The surrogate is asked to keep the arm extended as the practitioner gently tries to push the arm down. The surrogate is to exert the same upward force as the practitioner is using to push it down (very minimal). If the surrogate’s arm becomes weak under the gentle downward pressure, its indicating sensitivity to the allergen contained within the vial that’s in contact with the animal. This sequence is repeated with several different vials of individual allergens.

During the allergen treatment or clearing process, the glass vial containing the identified allergen is secured to a collar-like band around the animal’s neck. The vial is in the same location that the surrogate held it during the allergen identification process, and must remain there for approximately twenty minutes. While the band is around the animal’s neck, the practitioner then uses a massage tool along the spine of the animal, gently tapping each of the eleven acupoints called ‘Back Association Points’, or ‘Diagnostic Points’. Acupuncture or acupressure is used during the treatment process to “open” the ‘Immune Gates’, or ‘Immune Points’. Allergens can be eliminated by stimulating points like Spleen-6, Liver-3, Large Intestine-11, Large Intestine-4, and sometimes Heart-7. The allergen-clearing process is easiest in younger animals for which energy moves quickly and easily. It’s also more successful when there’s been minimal use of pharmaceutical intervention, which disrupts natural homeostasis.

Success of a NAET treatment is dependent upon:

  • adhering to the 24 hour avoidance period following the treatment (avoiding known allergen)
  • amount of time the animal has been affected by the allergies (just a month or all his life for example)
  • exposure to electro-magnetics, radiation and chemicals
  • age of the animal
  • tenacity of the animal’s human regarding treatment

NAET & Immune Mediated Disease

I use NAET in helping me treat most immune-mediated diseases because identifying the correct food, environmental, or vaccine triggers is essential for a successful outcome of those cases. If people stick with it, most autoimmune cases (regardless of severity) can be cured with a combination of NAET, diet changes, acupuncture and herbs – however it is often not an easy, inexpensive, or quick fix. Most cases require customized treatments that take several hours of office time and occur over months. You can read about some of these cases on the Testimonials page.

Common Allergy Symptoms/Conditions

  • itchy skin
  • digestive problems that may worsen
  • epilepsy (a brain disorder that causes the dog to have sudden, uncontrolled, recurring physical attacks, with or without loss of consciousness)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease, or IBD (a disorder in which one or more sections of the gastrointestinal tract have become invaded with inflammatory cells)
  • Lupus (a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs)
  • Mascitory Myositis (an inflammatory disease in dogs affecting the muscles of mastication/chewing)
  • Canine Onchodystrophy (an immune-mediated skin disease of a dog’s claw that causes separation and sloughing of several claws from claw beds)
  • Aural Vasculitis (a disorder causing lesions within the ear’s pinnae to ulcerate, crust and slough necrotic tissue)

NAET & My Allergies

I’d experienced allergy and asthma symptoms for many years, so when I met a local NAET practitioner I decided to try a treatment myself. Dr. Chu Lan-Chiong at East West Acupuncture in Seattle successfully treated and eliminated all of my allergy and asthma symptoms after several visits. The experience inspired me to travel to California to take both the basic and advanced (human specific) NAET training that I learned to adapt for use on animals.
