to the NAETŪ Patient before beginning NAETŪ Treatments
The prospective NAET® patient is required to read
Say Good-bye to Illness or Say Good-bye to Your Allergies
before coming to the first treatment. NAET® is a method
that helps to balance energies in the body. According
to Oriental medical theory, when one’s body energies
are maintained in a balanced state, one does not suffer
from most health disorders that arise from an energy imbalance.
According to NAET® theory, allergies cause energy
imbalances in the energy meridians, also known as energy
pathways. An energy blockage is the primary cause for
any allergic reaction towards any substance. When the
energy blockage from an allergen is removed via NAET®,
that particular allergen has not been shown to produce
adverse reactions in the body on future contacts. NAET®
is a mild, energy balancing, noninvasive, gentle procedure.
It has not been shown to cause any long-term adverse effects
on anyone within the last twenty years. While going through
NAET® treatments, patients should try to keep their
symptoms under control by taking necessary medications,
therapies or other modalities. The patient is required
to seek care of a primary care physician while getting
NAET® treatment. If you suffer from a specific problem,
you should also seek care of an appropriate medical specialist
to manage health needs related to your condition. NAET®
is only an energy-blockage removal treatment. NAET®
is not a primary care procedure.
II. Before the First Treatment
1. When you arrive at the office, these guidelines will
be provided to you or your guardian or caretaker. You
(they) MUST read and comply with these rules before beginning
the testing procedures.
2. You should bring in a copy of ALL previous medical
records, laboratory and radiological reports. You will
be required to complete the following forms in the office:
Personal data information sheet, history forms, symptom-survey
form, and a consent form.
3. If you have a history of anaphylactic reactions toward
any allergen, you must tell the NAET® practitioner
before beginning the tests. Doing so, your NAET® practitioner
can take adequate precaution to prevent you from becoming
anaphylactic during treatments.
4. If you have a history of ANAPHYLAXIS, you should inform
your practitioner on the very first visit before beginning
the testing and treatments. People with history of anaphylaxis
should ALWAYS be treated through a surrogate. They should
wash their hands or rub both hands together immediately
after each treatment. If you have severe allergies or
anaphylactic history on any basic group of allergens,
(Egg, milk, wheat, fish, etc.) those allergens should
be treated after completing rest of the Basic fifteen
groups. People with anaphylaxis are not required to hold
the sample during the 20-minute waiting period.
5. NAET® Anaphylactic protocol SHOULD be followed
strictly while getting treated. Your NAET® practitioner
will instruct you appropriately.
III Before Each Treatment
6. PLEASE do not wear any perfume, perfumed powder, strong
smelling deodorant, hair spray, or after-shave and do
not eat strong smelling herbs like raw garlic, seafood,
etc., when coming to the NAET® clinic for treatments.
If you suspect something is responsible for causing an
allergic reaction, you may bring the item to the NAET®
office in a thin glass container with a lid (as in a baby
food jar with lid), wrapped in brown paper or a brown
paper bag. Please do not bring items in plastic containers.
Plastic containers cannot be used in testing.
7. There is NO smoking allowed in or around the office.
PLEASE take a shower before you come for a treatment,
and wear clean clothes to avoid smells of herbs, spices,
perspiration, etc. Various smells can cause irritation
and reactions in other sensitive patients in the clinic
waiting room. Please do not eat or drink in the office.
Another patient in the office waiting room might react
to the smell of your food.
8. Wear minimum or no jewelry when you come in for a treatment.
Avoid wearing large crystals or large diamonds. NAET can
be done while wearing your own clothes provided you wear
simple, loose clothes without ANY art work or embroidery
with crystals, beads, stones, metals, glass or plastic
pieces. It is fine to wear simple wrist watches while
testing or treatments. Avoid watches with sharp needles,
cell phones, calculators, tape recorders, photo camera,
9. PLEASE do not wear any guns or knives to the office
even when they are part of your job requirements. Please
do NOT bring sharp metal objects, large keys, sharp toys,
heavy toys, or toy guns to the office.
10. Please turn off your cell phones inside the waiting
room and in the treatment room. Other sensitive patients
might react to your cell phone. Cell phones should be
off and kept away from your body during NAET® testing
and desensitization treatment.
11. ALWAYS eat before you come for the treatment. You
should not take NAET® treatments and acupuncture when
you are hungry. If you have a long wait in your practitioner’s
office, please bring a snack with you, leave it in the
car or outside the office. Five to ten minutes before
your treatment, please go outside the clinic and eat your
food, wash your hands with soap and water, and rinse your
mouth before you return to the clinic for the treatment.
12. Please WASH your hands with soap and water before
beginning the Neuromuscular sensitivity testing procedure
(NST). Hand-washing will remove any residue left on your
hands from other substances.
13. Do NOT treat with NAET® if you are extremely tired,
worked a night shift, or worked too many hours without
IV During Each Treatment
14. You should NOT have any companion with you standing
or sitting within your magnetic field during treatment.
You should not bring any children or pets to the treatment
room while you are being treated. You should be alone
with your NAET® practitioner while you get tested
or treated with NAET®.
15. Since NAET® is a mind-body balancing procedure,
the NAET® practitioner needs to receive permission
from your conscious and subconscious minds before performing
any energy balancing procedures. Signing the consent is
the permission from the conscious mind. But permission
from the subconscious is necessary for a successful NAET
treatment. For a trained practitioner it takes only a
few seconds to seek permission from the subconscious.
In rare occasions, it has been shown that certain person’s
subconscious mind does not grant permission to perform
NAET® testing or treatment. In such cases, the NAET®
practitioner may NOT proceed with NAET® testing. Instead
the NAET® practitioner will make appropriate referrals
for further evaluations related to their health conditions.
16. The NAET® practitioner must get permission from
YOUR subconscious mind before each NAET® desensitization
treatment as well. On a particular visit, if your brain
did not give favorable signals for a new treatment, you
will be rescheduled for another date. This is for your
best benefit. It has been shown that even anaphylactic
cases also can be treated successfully for the anaphylaxis-producing
allergen when the NAET® practitioner gets permission
from the patient’s brain before doing the treatment.
You may rest for a few days until your brain and body
are ready to get more treatments or you may be able to
receive other immune system supporting treatments like
chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, massage, Yoga,
etc. while waiting.
17. While performing NST, the patient SHOULD wash or rub
his/her hands together for 30 seconds between touching
different samples. The energy of the previously tested
sample has shown to produce false results if the energy
of the previous item has not been removed from the hands
before touching a new one.
18. While receiving NST testing or NAET® desensitization
procedures PLEASE make a loose fist with your free hand
(one without the allergen) in order to prevent contact
between the table or your clothes with your fingers while
19. Do not eat or chew gum or candy DURING NST testing
or NAET® treatment.
20. The NAET® practitioner will not have ANYONE observing
the treatment or taking notes, from a close proximity.
The distance varies with each patient for each allergen.
Your practitioner will know how to determine the distance.
21. If you are unable to test yourself (if you are a child,
old person, too strong, too weak, disabled, advanced stage
of pregnancy, etc.), then you SHOULD be tested through
a surrogate so that the practitioner can get accurate
information about your sensitivities. You should maintain
skin-to-skin contact with the surrogate during testing
and the surrogate should rub his/her hands together or
wash hands between testing different allergens.
22. You could also be treated through a surrogate’s
body and get the exact benefit as if you were getting
treated directly. Patients in advanced stage of pregnancy,
morbidly obese, with psoriasis or other debilitating skin
problem, back surgery, scoliosis, or a history of anaphylaxis,
etc., SHOULD receive NAET® treatments through a surrogate.
V The Basic 15 treatments
23. The NAET Basic 15 treatments are in fact the basic
essential nutrients for everyone. If you are allergic
to them your body may not receive adequate nutrients.
That will cause to lower the immune system and may cause
to have various health disorders due to nutritional deficiencies
brought on by allergies. When your immune system is maintained
at a normal level, not only you feel better overall, your
allergic sensitivity will be reduced with the result,
you need fewer NAET treatments to get maximum results.
VI. Reasons Why Treatments May Need to be Given
Out of Order
24. If you have allergies to white rice, or pasta, they
can be treated before the Basic treatments.
25. Hard-to-avoid items like prescription drugs should
be treated first in the doctor’s office, then treated
at home through self-treatment every two hours. In case
of a drug that cannot be avoided, you should treat by
gate-massage before and after you take the drug as well
as massaging the gates every two hours for the 25 hours
after the initial treatment.
26. When a patient has an ACUTE problem, practitioners
will treat the acute problem before resuming the normal
order of treatments if the patient’s brain gives
permission to do so. For instance, when a patient is reacting
to a particular food that was eaten recently, a medication
that is essential for the patient’s survival (like
pain medication, cortisone, antihistamine, antidepressants,
heart medication, etc.), fire-smoke, accidentally exposed
exposure to fumes, drinking water, city water, acute emotional
imbalances like the death of a loved one, etc., can be
treated as an acute allergen before completing the basic
fifteen treatments as long as the body permits. If someone
has severe reaction to pollens, weeds, cigarette smoke,
regular drugs like chemotherapy drugs, antibiotics, standard
emotional blockage removal treatments, person-to-person
allergies, etc., can be treated after completing six basic
treatments (after completing sugar mix). When the treatment
for acute allergen is completed satisfactorily, you should
go back to the basics and continue as before.
27. You must wash your hands with plain water after treatment
BEFORE you leave the office. After the treatment if you
cannot wash or rinse your hands, vigorously rubbing your
hands by interlacing your fingers for 30 seconds will
28. After the NAET® desensitization, PLEASE do not
exercise vigorously for 6 hours. A mild walk is fine.
29. AVOID exposure to extreme hot or cold temperature
after the desensitization treatment.
30. Do NOT bathe or shower for 6 hours following the NAET®
31. Do not read or touch other objects with your FINGERS
during the 20 minutes waiting period after NAET® treatment.
32. Do NOT cross your hands or feet during the first 20
minutes following the NAET® treatment. Lying or resting
with a calm mind will be beneficial. You could visualize
positive, warm energy circulation through the 12 meridians
while resting. Meditation is allowed. After an emotional
NAET®, you are advised to think positively during
the 20 minute waiting period about the issue which was
30. Your practitioner WILL ask you to avoid the treated
allergen for 25 hours or more as indicated by his/her
testing after the completion of the treatment in the office.
After the treatment you should avoid eating, touching,
breathing and coming within 5 feet of the substance that
was treated following 25 hours after treatment. It is
also suggested that after completing your treatment satisfactorily
for an allergen, eat a small amount of the item daily
for three to four days. If the treatment is not completely
finished, you will bring out some minor symptoms and your
practitioner can investigate the reasons behind those
symptoms and eliminate them. Another benefit of introducing
the treated allergen into your body is to reconfirm the
brain and nervous system about the harmlessness of the
item so that your nervous system will not forget about
this allergen in the future even if you never ate them
later for years.
31. It is highly recommended that after three NAET®
basic treatments, you TRY to consume food and drinks from
the desensitized groups only. Add new items to your list
as you complete each treatment. This will reduce your
overall discomfort while going through the rest of the
treatments and your NAET® treatments will be more
effective and you will be able to see results with NAET®
faster. Depending on your immune system the treatments
can be scheduled. A patient with severe allergies and
poor immune system can only tolerate one treatment per
week. But patients with better immune system have shown
to tolerate three or more treatments per week. Your practitioner
can test your body for the appropriate treatment plan.
32. If you are a highly SENSITIVE person, or if you experience
any discomfort during the 25 hour-avoidance period after
the treatment (crying spells, depression, unusual emotions
or unusual pains anywhere in the body, etc.), you may
need to balance your gates every two hours on your own
at home while you are AWAKE. When you sleep, you do not
need to set an alarm to wake you every two hours. Instead
whenever you wake up, you can continue treating again.
33. The practitioner can determine the APPROXIMATE number
of hours of avoidance by using question response testing
for patients who have difficulty avoiding food for 25
hours. Infants and children can be treated in the evening
or before going to sleep for hard-to-avoid items. Please
ask your practitioner if you have questions.
34. If someone has a hard time avoiding the allergen for
a specific amount of time for any particular reason, he/she
should BALANCE his/her gate points every two hours as
well as before and after exposure to the allergen. In
case the patient has developmental disabilities, caretakers
should be instructed to massage the gate points (Read
Page 58 in the book, Living Pain Free by Devi S. Nambudripad)
every two hours during the 25 hours and also before and
after touching the treated allergen. Your practitioner
will teach you the self-balancing technique if you do
not understand by reading the book, Living Pain Free.
It is advisable for you to BUY the book, Living Pain Free,
the self-help book with Illustrations since it can help
you to control or reduce various allergic reactions and
discomforts arising from untreated allergies by massaging
the appropriate acupressure self-treatment points whenever
the need arises.
35. No adverse reactions have been noted when a person
eats food INCLUDING the food he/she was treated, for 20
minutes following the retest of the initial treatment
for the allergen. The 25 hour-restriction begins 30 minutes
after the completion of the treatment. Do not eat HEAVY
meals before or after the NAET® or acupuncture treatments.
DRINK a glass of water before the NAET® treatment.
Energy moves better in a well hydrated body. Drink 4-6
glasses of water through the day after NAET® treatments
to help flush out the toxins produced during the treatment.
36. You are advised to MAINTAIN your own treatment and
food diary in The Guide Book after each treatment. Write
down all the good and bad symptoms you experience during
25-hours following treatment and bring it to your practitioner
on your next visit. If you have frequent health problems
and you do not know the cause of your problems, write
down your daily activities for a month in a separate notebook.
Record all the food and drinks you consumed even if they
were in small portions and record also anything new you
have purchased in the house or work area since the problem
started. Bring your record to the office and let your
NAET® practitioner test you for the items in your
list to find the culprit.
37. You may need to take EXTRA precaution while you get
treated for environmental substances: (mineral mix, metals,
water, leather, formaldehyde, fabric, wood, mold, mercury,
newspaper, chemicals, flowers, etc.). Apart from staying
away from these items, you may also need to wear a mask,
gloves, socks, shoes, gowns, scarves, earplugs, etc. You
can also massage the gate points every two hours while
awake during the 25-hour period if it is not completely
38. During the 25-hours or afterwards, if you get a life-threatening
reaction from an allergen (either from the one you were
treated in the office or another one), you MUST seek emergency
help immediately from a primary care physician or emergency
room, or by calling 911.
39. Once every month or so, or after completing treatments
for TEN to FIFTEEN allergens, your practitioner will repeat
NST on all treated allergens. If an allergen wasn’t
passing over 50 percent at the time, they will be boosted
up again. No avoidance is necessary at this time.
40. AFTER fifteen Basic treatments with the practitioner,
patient should begin to gather a small sample of every
day food and drinks and holding the sample, balance the
gate points every night before bedtime.
41. DRINK one 6 ounce-glass of water first thing in the
morning. Drink 1 glass of water before bedtime.
42. Remember to CHECK with your practitioner for the item
you treated, after 25 hours, and at least within one week
to make sure you have completed the treatment.
VII Additional Information about NAET®
43. NAET® is a HOLISTIC procedure. It balances the
entire body including: physical, physiological and emotional
functions. Everyone needs balance in all these levels
of the body to be healthy. If one area is not balanced
properly, other areas cannot function normally. NAET®
emotional balancing procedure has been shown to produce
marvelous results in people who suffer from environmental
illness, chemical reactions, chronic pain disorders, other
chronic illnesses, autism and ADHD, etc. This emotional
balancing treatment will be provided to the patient without
additional cost. After completion of Sugar treatment (after
completing six basic treatments), NAET® emotional
balancing treatments can be administered upon request.
44. NAET® emotional balancing procedures do NOT replace
the need for traditional psychological or psychiatric
help. If you are getting treatments in these areas prior
to NAET®, please continue with your therapies and
medications as needed. If you for any reason do not like
to be balanced emotionally by your NAET® practitioner
(due to religious reasons, etc.), you should inform the
NAET® practitioner on the initial visit, then emotional
balancing procedure will be excluded from your treatment
45. If you did not complete the treatment, or if you could
not complete the specific NAET® treatment for some
reason, do not panic. NAET® is a mild, energy balancing,
noninvasive, gentle procedure. It has not been shown to
cause any long-term adverse effects on anyone within the
last twenty years. Your temporary symptoms may be due
to the incomplete treatment and may continue for up to
two or three weeks maximum. Drink about 4-6 glasses of
boiled cooled water daily to help with your energy circulation.
46. Eventually the particular symptoms will wear off and
you may return to your pre-NAET® status if you did
not repeat the treatment for the unfinished allergen.
For example, if you suffered from insomnia prior to NAET®
treatment, you may continue to have insomnia; if you suffered
from pain disorders, you may continue to suffer from pain
disorders, etc. An allergen which was treated halfway
has not shown to render any benefit to the patient at
all. Human body forgets and adapts new ways fast. The
incomplete treatment is forgotten in about three days
to a week in most cases, but in some cases it has shown
to take as long as three weeks, then the body learns to
focus on current events. Thus, in a few days, an incompletely
treated allergen has been viewed by the body as an allergen
that was never been treated before.
47. But if you had to stop the NAET treatment for the
particular allergen because you had no means to get to
the office, then you can balance the energy for the particular
item at home on your own by holding the item while massaging
the gate points once every four hours while awake for
two to three weeks or as short or as long as the body
needs to view that as a friendly item. This method will
only work after one has been treated initially with a
trained practitioner, and the treatment was not completed
for some reason. If it is an uncomplicated, individual
item, like a piece of sourdough bread, a piece of meat,
a hot dog, a laxative or a pain pill like Tylenol or another
drug, a particular piece of fabric (a shirt, scarf), etc.,
then the patient or the caretaker can complete the treatment
in this manner at home. CAUTION: this should be done only
on a single allergen, never try on a group of allergens.
48. After completing treatment for an allergen, if NST
tested strong on retest but the patient is still suffering
from prior symptoms, the patient should be allowed to
rest a few days to a couple of weeks without any new NAET®
treatment. This is in fact to rule out or to determine
if the desensitization towards the particular allergen
was successful or not; and to determine if the presenting
symptom is arising from another source or not. If the
particular allergen treatment is incomplete, if you wait
a few days the NST will produce a weak response either
on its own or with some combinations. Then the treatment
on the allergen itself or with a combination can be repeated
at that time. While waiting to detect the outcome of the
previous treatment, it is OK to boost up the immune system
with acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, massages, herbs
or other therapies. Or the patient can continue to self
balance for the item at home as described above.
49. Sometimes, the patient continues to have the same
symptom but NST does not show any weakness on the previously
treated allergen. In such cases it has shown that the
patient passed the treated allergen but another allergen
capable of producing similar symptoms have been identified
as the culprit. Usually people with history of allergies
react to more than one or a few allergens. When one allergen
gets desensitized and eliminated from the body, others
will get noticed easier, hence the symptom of the previous
allergen continues until all the allergens are desensitized
50. When one has a weakness in any particular area of
the body, every allergen affects that area of the body
giving rise to symptom similar to the first one. This
pattern is especially noticed in patients with asthma,
sinus problems, autistic disorders, attention-deficit
hyperactive disorders, chronic pain syndrome, as in degenerative
arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus, headaches, migraines,
backaches, myofascial pain, peripheral neuropathy, PMS,
insomnia, manic or depressive disorders, etc. Because
of this mechanism, until you complete NAET for Basic fifteen,
you may not see much changes in your health in these cases.
51. When you are allergic to a substance, your body produces
lots of endogenous toxins. After you are treated to an
allergen, it takes 24 hours for the body to detoxify the
allergen from all 12 major meridians (each meridian takes
2 hours) naturally to get the toxins out of the body.
SOME patients may not have 25 hour avoidance or restrictions.
Some people may pass the allergen right after the treatment;
some may take just a few hours; some may take 25 hours,
yet some others may take 40 hours. Even though NST demonstrated
that you would clear the allergen in 10 minutes or so,
it is to your advantage to avoid the item for the whole
25 hours (24 hours and one more hour) allowing the body
to detox naturally. After a few NAET® treatments,
you have the option to go on a good detoxification program
using different products (herbs, minerals, etc.) to clean
up your system. But if you faithfully follow the 25-hour
avoidance, you may not need any special detoxification
since the body is able to naturally eliminate the toxins
in time if given a chance.
52. You are advised to continue ALL medications and other
treatment modalities as they have prescribed unless otherwise
directed by the doctors who prescribed them. PLEASE do
not stop any other treatment you are on: medication, therapy,
chiropractic treatments, massages, etc.
53. NAET® treatments have NOT been shown to interfere
with any other treatment. In fact, if you can keep your
body free of toxin accumulation and keep your symptoms
under control by using medication or therapies, NAET®
has shown to work better.
54. For FEMALE patients: Treatments are not advisable
during the first three days of menstrual cycle.
55. NAET® treatments during pregnancy have not shown
to cause any adverse effects to the mother or child so
far. In fact tremendous benefits have been noted in both
cases. When the mothers receives adequate NAET® treatments
during pregnancy (at least 15 basics and all known allergens
of the mother treated), their children are born with very
few allergies when compared with their siblings who never
had exposure to NAET® before birth.
56. When you go through the NAET® treatment program,
you will be advised to get supplemented with appropriate
amount of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients for
a while if it is indicated. When the nutrients are supplemented
appropriately pain and discomfort arising from various
disorders like chronic fatigue, general body aches, arthritis,
and other pain disorders due to deficiencies, etc., will
57. If you do not show any improvement in your health
status after successfully passing basic ten to fifteen
allergen groups at all three levels, probably NAET®
is not for you. Please ask your practitioner to refer
you to another source of healthcare facility.
58. The NAET® practitioner…. This is for your
best benefit. It has been shown that even anaphylactic
cases also can be treated successfully for the anaphylaxis-producing
allergen when the NAET® practitioner gets permission
from the patient’s brain before doing the treatment.
