Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques

What is NAET? Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique is a holistic, non-invasive treatment used in eliminating food sensitivities and environmental allergy intolerance. The founder, Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad has a Ph.D in Oriental Medicine and is an M.D., acupuncturist, chiropractor, kinesiologist and a registered nurse. Dr. Nambudripad has been conducting research in the U.S. since 1984; resulting, in the development of a new and effective approach known as NAET for diagnosis and elimination of all types of allergy intolerances. Dr. Nambudripad utilized the existing medical knowledge from her various fields of Medicine, combined her own discoveries and developed this new technique. Dr. Devi Nambudripad states: "NAET is an innovative, completely natural method for regaining perfect health from allergy intolerances and diseases arising from allergy sensitivities."

Allergy/Autism Case Studies

Our study has been accepted and the news is out Effective treatment for autistic disorders is available with NAET!

Have you been feeling hopeless as your child struggles with autism? Been told by your physician that there is nothing that you can do, or been trying to sort through dozens of cures on the Internet?

As a parent, trying to help an autistic child can be a difficult and scary struggle. The good news? There is now help and hope. New research suggests that it is time to say goodbye to autism!

Treating Autism with NAET

"Improving Communication Skills in Children With Allergy-related Autism Using Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques: A Pilot Study" was recently published in Integrative Medicine A Clinician's Journal.

Funded by The Teitelbaum Family Foundation and involving 60 autistic children, the study shows the efficacy of NAET as a treatment for autism.

Autism prevalence increased by over 50% between 2002 and 2006. We hypothesized that major contributors to the development and symptoms of autism include food and nutrient sensitivities. Desensitization to multiple allergens forms the basis of the NAET treatment for autism.


Subjects & Intervention: Sixty children (2.5-10 years old) with a diagnosis of autism were randomly assigned to either the treatment or control groups. The treatment group consisted of 26 boys and 4 girls and the control group included 25 boys and 5 girls. The treatment group (30 children) received NAET treatments (combining acupressure and kinesiology) for 50 key allergens for 1 year. The children in the (non-blinded) control group did not receive any NAET treatments. Each group was allowed to continue with any other therapies they had been receiving. The NST (kinesiology/muscle testing) was used to determine which substances triggered sensitivity reactions in each child and NAET acupressure treatments were then used to eliminate the sensitivities.

Outcome Measures : The primary outcome measure was the Autism Research Institute Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ARI-ATEC). Secondary outcome measures included the Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS), Neuromuscular Sensitivity Testing (NST) and the Allergy Symptom Rating Scale (ASRS). The participating children were evaluated using these instruments at the beginning and at the end of the 1-year study.


56 children (26 in the NAET-treated group and 30 in the control group) completed the study. After one year, the children receiving NAET treatments exhibited clinically dramatic and statistically significant improvements in performance compared to the control group, as demonstrated by the mean 68.4% decrease in the total ARI-ATEC Score (compared to the mean 0.8% decrease in the control group; p<0.0001) and the 64% to 82% mean decreases on the 4 ARI-ATEC subtests (all p<0.0001). Similarly, the CARS rating improved by an average of 47.4% among the NAET-treated children, compared to only 0.4% in the control group (p<0.0001); the NST Score improved by an average of 65.5%, compared to a mean improvement of 0.0% (p<0.0001); and the total ASRS Score decreased by an average of 85%, compared to 2.3% (p<0.0001). In addition, NAET treatment also produced statistically significant improvements in each of 30 of the 35 symptoms assessed using the ASRS. Clinically, 23 of the 30 children in the treatment group were able to return to regular school classes with their healthy, non-autistic peers after treatment while all of the children in the control group continued to require special education.


NAET is an effective and well tolerated treatment for children with allergy-related autism.

Effects of NAET® as Relates to Most Common Allergy-related Subjective Pain Syndrome in a Chiropractic-Acupuncture-NAET® Office.


To determine the average number of office visits (Allergy balancing treatments), using NAET®, that were needed to relieve symptoms suffered by patients.


Data gathered and analyzed from office documentation spanning a ten-year period. Data from both male and female subjects of various ages was used. The patients completed symptom survey questionnaires; the most common signs/symptoms recorded in the sample group were used for the purpose of this analysis.

The number of patient visits until symptoms resolved were then tracked and documented.


Approximately two thirds of the sample group experienced resolution of symptoms within the first 15 -25 visits.
