Subject: Introduction of Visiting Expert!
I would like to introduce our next honored Visiting Expert, Dr. Devi S.
Nambudripad, the developer of the Namudripad Allergy Elimination Technique
I first heard about NAET a couple of years ago from a feature article in
Alternative Medicine Digest. Since that time, I have read numerous cases
from people on Internet groups which describe full recovery from or
significant improvement to allergies, asthma, ADD, other chronic immune
system disorders. I know that some well-known practitioners who treat ADD
regularly refer patients to NAET practitioners. So I am very excited that
Dr. Namudripad can visit and share her expertise!
Below is a description of the history of NAET from Dr. Nambudripad's web
page: http://www.naet.com/. This will also serve as Dr. Nambudripad's
bio. Tomorrow, I will send the initial email to the group related to
NAET was developed by, a California acupuncturist,
chiropractor, kinesiologist and a registered nurse, Dr. Devi
S. Nambudripad in an attempt to relieve herself of severe
allergic symptoms suffered since her birth in Kerala, South
While working on her Ph.D. at Samra University of Oriental
Medicine in Los Angeles, she observed that people
presenting allergic symptoms often responded favorably to
acupuncture or acupressure treatment. After recognition of
the systemic relationship between contact with an allergen
and the resulting neuro-physiological effects produced in the
body, she began to discover the key to the mystery of how
the brain may be reprogrammed in its response to what it
once took to be harmful or toxic.
Her own experience and personal interest led her to develop
the method later referred to collectively as NAET and to
specialize exclusively in the diagnosis and treatment of
allergies. She has trained over thousand medical practitioners
from all over the world (chiropractors, acupuncturists,
allopathic medical doctors, dentists, doctors of osteopathy,
doctors of veterinary medicine are some among the group).
To date, thousands of patients have been successfully
treated, with permanent and amazing results.
Various studies to prove the effectiveness of NAET are

Subject: ADD Visiting Expert Dr. Devi Nambudripad
I hope you received the introduction of our honored Visiting Expert, Dr.
Devi Nambudripad, the developer of the Nambudripad Allergy Elimination
Technique (NAET). If you missed the introduction, you can see it on the
following web page: http://www.egroups.com/list/add-holistic/989.html
I have received email from people who have used this treatment modality to
successfully treat ADD/ADHD. Dr. Nambudripad has a good deal of experience
treating ADD and an understandable interest in the issue as she used NAET
to cure her son's ADHD.
What will follow is the initial post split into two parts. It is an
article that Dr. Nambudripad put together for our group based on sections
from her upcoming book on ADD/ADHD entitled, "Say Goodbye To ADD and

More than one million American children take Ritalin regularly to help
them with Attention Deficit Disorder, an increase of two and a half times
since 1990. Do we have a miracle cure or over-medicated kids? (Newsweek,
March 18, 1996, cover story) “ADHD has become America's number 1 childhood
What is ADHD? And where did it pop up all of a sudden? Is it another
21st Century illness?
Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD, also known as ADD is not a
new disease. In fact it is not a disease at all. ADD is a neurologically
or neuro-biologically-based environmentally dependent, developmental
disability, estimated to affect between 3-5 percent of the school age
population (Professional group for Attention Deficit Disorders, 1991).
References to attention deficit disorders like symptoms have been found in
the medical literature for almost 100 years. In fact, this syndrome is one
of the most thoroughly researched of all childhood disorders. According
to scientific experts ADD is a disability that can cause serious lifelong
problems if it is left untreated.
In recent times, ADD is officially called Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity
disorder, or ADHD (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). But to most
people the name ADD still remains a familiar term.
According to the traditional medical researchers, the actual cause of ADHD
is not known. Scientific evidence suggests that the disorder is
genetically transmitted in many cases and results from a chemical
imbalance or deficiency in certain neurotransmitters, which are chemicals
that help the brain regulate behavior. A study conducted by the National
Institute of Mental Health showed that the rate at which the brain uses
glucose ( its main energy source), is lower in subjects with ADHD than in
subjects without ADHD (Zametkin et al. 1990).
What are the signs of ADHD?
Professionals who diagnose ADHD use the diagnostic criteria set forth by
the American Psychiatric Association (1994) in the Diagnostic and
Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The fourth edition of this manual,
known as the DSM-1V, was released in May 1994.
According to DSM-1V the most obvious signs associated with this disorder
are inattentiveness (short attention span, failure to listen, failure to
follow instructions, inability to finish projects, and inability to stay
focused), impulsivity (act before thinking, answer before completely
listening to the question, etc.), and hyperactivity (excessive activity,
fidgets, doesn't stay in seat, runs, climbs, moving back and forth all the
time, etc.). One can have any one of these symptoms alone or in
combination with two or more or all of the above.
In addition to these problems, depending on the child's age and
developmental stage, parents and teachers may see temper tantrums,
frustration, anger, bossiness, difficulty in following rules,
disorganization, social rejection, low-self esteem, poor academic
achievement, and inadequate self-application.
A proper diagnostic evaluation by NAET includes the following:
Traditional medical approach for such conditions are :
- A thorough medical and family history, pre-natal history of the
mother (if she suffered from any strange disease or emotional
trauma during pregnancy, etc.), emotional, social and
environmental history like parental divorce, child abuse, death
of a loved one, environmental or residential disruption, a new
comer in the family, arrival of a new sibling;
- Behavior ratings completed by parents and teachers;
- A physical examination (vital signs, growth pattern, etc.);
- List of commonly eaten food and drinks, any special addictions
to toys, blanket, furniture,etc.
- Muscle Response Testing for possible allergens;
- A computerized non-invasive testing for possible allergens.
Treatment Through Traditional Approach:
Medication has proven effective for many children with ADHD. In most
cases, the Cental nervous system stimulants are used. They are believed to
stimulate the action of the brain's neurotransmitters, which enables the
brain to regulate attention, impulse and behavior. Short acting stimulants
like Dexedrine or Ritalin (methylphenidate) are commonly used. Ritalin
has been used successfully in the treatment of ADHD for several decades.
It has been found helpful in alleviating the symptoms in children and
adults who take the medication. In some cases where stimulants are not
suitable anti-depressant medications are used. Since the drug can help to
reduce or control most of the symptoms the child then continue to live by
learning and working, etc. It is okay to use the drugs if it is necessary,
to help the child to function in this world. It is better than letting
the child waste his life away. But it is very important to check the
allergy to the medication before administering it. If the child is
allergic to the drug, it is not going to give any expected result. . In
some children, where they have an allergy to drugs, their condition could
get worse by using these drugs. They may become hyper, violent, irritable
beyond control, or may produce unpleasant side effects like itching,
hives, eczema, indigestion, bowel and bladder incontinence, etc. In such
cases, medication should be stopped immediately and should not be used
until the allergy is removed. Now we have NAET. You can look up the
web-site allergy naet.com to find a NAET practitioner near you. He/she
will be able to remove the allergy to the drugs in a short period of time.
- Behavior modification;
- Educational modification;
- Psychological counseling; and
- Pharmaceutical drugs.
Some children may out-grow these symptoms and lead a normal life in their
adulthood without the use of drugs. Some others may need to continue the
use of drugs and increase the dosage steadily to get the desired effect
and continue the usage even through their adulthood, middle age and old
But one of the problems with the use of medication is that it is too often
given too quickly without investigating other ways to help a child with
ADHD. Certain schools make it mandatory that parents give Ritalin in order
for the ADD child to continue receiving an education. Doctors readily
prescribe this magic pill. And for some, it seems to work. Perhaps
“easier” than altering the life style by behavior modification, changing
the diet, and tracking down the actual cause of the problem for the
individual child to avoid or eliminate them.
Even though, we are using thoroughly researched pharmaceutical drugs,
drugs are chemical compounds and can have allergy and few side effects in
certain individuals. The allergic reactions and side effects have created
constant fear in some people against using drugs. More and more people are
becoming conscious against using chemically produced drugs and moving
towards using products made by natural means. Long term use of chemicals
can destroy our body's garbage disposal --the Liver -- to go weak;
sometimes, damage beyond reversal!.
Alternative Treatments and therapies
Because of the experience of adverse drug reactions, more and more
practitioners and consumers are looking for natural means to control this
disorder. Out of necessity, many alternative therapies have been invented.
Now, there are many alternative therapies available for ADHD today that
produce inner calmness and serenity in the victims without using
chemically produced drugs. These commonly practiced alternative therapies
include: behavior modification in conjunction with vitamin-mineral
therapy, amino- acid therapy, various detoxification programs to remove
toxins and parasites, herbal supplementation, biofeedback, living in a
chemical-free environment, diet management by removing sugar, corn,
gluten, milk , dairy products, yeast, food additives, and carbonated water
from the diet entirely, providing regular chiropractic treatments,
acupuncture treatments, regular therapeutic massages, saunas, encouraging
Yoga and meditation practices, magnetic therapy, engaging in regular
sports and exercises programs, etc.
What is NAET?
Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques or NAET for short is an
innovative, completely natural and a drugless treatment method for
regaining perfect health by achieving freedom from allergies and diseases
arising from allergies. It is a holistic, non-invasive treatment used in
eliminating food, chemical, environmental and emotional allergies
permanently. NAET is developed for diagnosis and elimination of allergies
of all types. The best part of medical knowledge from various medical
fields are combined in developing this new technique.
We now know that most of the causes of common illnesses including ADD
and ADHD are in fact, undiagnosed allergies. Which when left untreated can
become serious health problems. An allergy is an over-reaction of the
immune system. In NAET, allergies are viewed from a holistic perspective,
based on Oriental Medical principles. An allergy is a condition of unusual
sensitivity of one person to one or more substances that may be harmless to
the majority of individuals. In the allergic person, the allergen is viewed by
the brain as a threat to the body's well-being. So, an allergy is defined in
terms of what a substance does to the energy flow in the body.
When the body, or magnetic field of the body makes a contact with an
allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called meridians, or,
we can say, it disrupts the normal flow of energy through the body's
electrical circuits. This energy blockage causes interference in
communication between the brain and body via the nervous system. The
obstructed energy flow is the first step in a chain of events which can
develop into an allergic response. An allergic reaction is the result of
continuous energy imbalances in the body, leading to a diminished state of
health in one or more organ system or a disease.
The energy pathways travelling back and forth from brain to Heart, Spleen,
and Liver meridians are affected in ADHD cases. NAET uses Muscle Response
Testing (MRT) to test the allergens and to detect the blockages in the
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR ADHD USING NAET ?
The NAET treatment involves three steps:
Step - 1
Isolate the offending allergen using NTT (Nambudripad's Testing
Techniques: Muscle response testing, and/or non-invasive skin resistant
testing, also encourages the use of standardized laboratory testing like
RAST, Eliza act etc.);
Mild acupressure on specific pre-determined acupuncture points by the
practitioner on the specific meridians;
Complete avoidance of the treated allergen for 25 hours following the
After 25 hours practitioner needs to retest the treated allergen for the
completeness of the treatment. In most cases it takes one treatment (one
office visit) to eliminate the allergy if the treatment is administered
properly, and 25 hour - avoidance is followed. In some extreme cases it
may take more than one office visit per item.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Avoiding the allergens are not always easy or exciting. The most effective
treatment option for allergies until now has been complete avoidance of
the offending allergens. This can be difficult and in some cases
impossible. Can you imagine eating a strict diet for months after months
and years after years, especially if that diet contains no egg, soy,
fruits, vegetables, wheat, corn, rice, sugar, fats, hamburgers, French
fries, ice cream, milk, butter, oils, gluten, MSG, spices, whiten-all,
food additives, food colorings, etc.? That's where NAET comes in. NAET
will accommodate to the 21st Century lifestyle. It doesn't mean that one
should eat all junk foods available after completing NAET treatments. NAET
can remove the adverse effect of any allergic food in the body including
all the above listed food products, and create a homeostasis in the body
in the present of the offending allergen (without avoiding for life).
During the NAET treatment, your brain will create a new friendly memory
towards the allergen and will imprint and store in the memory bank.
During the process, the old memory about the allergen's adverse effect is
erased or forgotten. After completion of the NAET treatment, the allergen
becomes non-allergen and an irritant becomes non- irritant to your energy
field and the body will learn to relax naturally in the presence of the
new friendly substance. When the brain is not frightened about the
contact with the new harmless substance (previously an allergen), natural
calmness comforts the brain and body. Thus the attention deficit and
hyperactive symptoms will disappear. The child can relax and listen to
others once again without being frightened or bothered by the irritation
that particular irritant produced once. Now the calm nervous system will
co- operate with the child and allow him to relax without the help of CNS
stimulant or depressant. If they continue to maintain an allergy-free
body and live in a suitable environment, they can say goodbye to ADHD for
It sounds like a magic or too good to be true, Isn't it?
It is easier than many other treatments available now. But nothing comes
that easy. You have to work hard to find your allergens and/ or find a
doctor who is NAET practitioner. Please read the book "Say Goodbye To
Illness", by the author. This book will help you to find your child's
allergens. Please visit our web-site to locate a NAET practitioners near

Subject: Re: ADD Dr. Devi - Child vs Adult
There is no difference with NAET done on a child or an adult. If it is
done properly, both should get great results. In most cases it takes 25
hour of avoidance. Sometimes a child may take less hours. Even if some
one takes less hours to pass a treatment, it is advisable to avoid 25
hours before one resume using the product. We see fewer combinations
treatments when a person observes 25 hour avoidance.

Dr. Devi and all,
What kind of effectiveness/success rate do you see with NAET for ADD? Is this about
the same for other illnesses/conditions? Is it more than 75%?
How much of this success rate involves getting rid of the condition and how much
involves improving the condition to some degree?
Mark mentioned studies in his intro. Have there been any studies on the
effectiveness of NAET for ADD or any other illness? What types of studies have been
done? Have any studies been published on NAET?
Thanks for your response..

Subject: Re: ADD Dr. Devi - Effectiveness
The successrate with NAET is more than 75% in almost all the cases of
ADHD we have treated. In some cases it is more than 90%. They have
cleared their problems completely and able to function as a normal
person. We have many NAET doctors treating ADHD all over the country. We
have assigned a group of researchers to collect data from all the
practicing NAET practitioners. When we get all the data we will know how
many children have been treated and how many responded to the treatment
to what degree. We have not done any double blind studies on ADHD. We
have done some studies on other areas, like milk allergy elimination,
etc. but we have not published anywhere yet. Eventhough NAET is
practiced over 13 years, we have come to the light only in the last year
or so. We have begun researches in few areas, the results will not be
out for few years. I wish we had better things to offer to you on the
data. Our main source is from the patients' results. May be some of the
mothers with ADHD children who were treated with NAET would see this
sight and share their success stories with the readers.

Subject: ADD Re: Questions about NAET
Dear Dr. Devi,
A friend and fellow herbalist introduced me to NAET several months ago
in a talk she gave at the local Holistic Practitioner's meeting. I
wanted to believe it but It sounded too good to be true and even though
I know this lady to be of the highest character, I was suspicious of
this new method with all the little vials of water with computer
replicated substances that she had just been trained for and was so
excited about. I just couldn't help but wonder if it wasn't the latest
"New Age thing" or another way to make money for somebody.
Having been involved with ADD for about 30 years now, I feel as you do
that drugs such as ritalin are sometimes appropriate, but that they are
not little "magic" pills or the answer long term for everyone as they
are currently touted in the US. I also have read and personally
observed that allergies and blood sugar problems are almost always
present. These parts of the ADD puzzle are often just ignored as it
requires discipline,is much harder and more expensive to change one's
diet or environment than to take a little pill.
It was only about a month after my friend gave this talk about NAET that
Dr. Doris Rapp came to Orlando and gave a lecture. I was truly stunned
when she told us there that she had moved to Arizona in an effort to
build a center to study and validate a new method that she had
encountered a couple years ago. She said this method works, but that in
order for it to be endorsed or accepted by the mainstream studies are
needed to prove the reasons behind why it works. This effort was going
to be one of the areas that she was going to pursue. The method she
spoke of was NAET!
Dr. Rapp then proceeded to demonstate. She had a man hold something
that he knew he was allergic to and then she put her hands on either
side of his head and as he breathed in she put pressure on each side of
his forehead and occiput, then let go as he breathed out. She repeated
this 3 times. I have come to understand now that while it was a good
demo because it served to greatly excite and interest the group present
in NAET, it is just a small part of the whole method of which you were
Here are my questions: Now I know this demoed procedure seems a bit
simplistic but does it really work? Could it be used first at home with
the known offenders and then could one go to a practitioner for the
unknowns? Is the power to heal oneself or one's loved ones from
allergies as simple as finding what it is they are allergic to, getting
your hands on that substance and then performing the head thing, and
then avoiding the offending substance for 25 hours? What are the
dangers, if any, of doing this to onself? Is NAET going to become as
well-known as the Heimlich manuver? a method that with minimal training
can empower anyone to perform it? I hope and pray so. Once these
offending substances are no longer exacerbating the ADD, other methods
used to treat the deficit would work so much better and more quickly,
thus less expensively which would open them up to more people. Which
leads me to- about how much have you observed (estimated average) is
required in time and money for NAET on most ADD kids?
Thank you for coming on the ADD list and sharing this "new" method with
us. I am really looking forward to reading your book on using NAET for
attention deficit, hyperactivity and autism. Fran Hamilton

- The overwhelming percentage of people I have spoken to who were
treated with NAET had significant improvement after several
treatments. However, in a couple of cases, people said that
the improvement was only slight. Are there resources for
"troubleshooting" in the few cases where the initial
improvement is not large?
- There are some people on the list with gluten intolerence. How
successful (if at all) is NAET in discovering and treating gluten
- I would like to try NAET treatment, but am currently on a remedy
from a Classical Homeopath. Others on the list use Homeopathy
as well, I believe. Is there any conflicts with doing
NAET while on the remedy?

Hello to all,
I want to respond to the questions regarding NAET. My little girl has
had many problems since birth, and I was unable to get help for her
until a friend introduced me to Dr. Devi Nambudripad.
I am my little girls grandmother and though I have had children I did
not have any experience with the problems that she was experiencing. The
pediatrician suggested that I change her formula to soy, unfortunately
that did not help her. We were then told to try goat milk and that was
somewhat of a help. I took her to an allergist who sent her out for a
blood test that was so traumatizing that I cried with her. The allergist
then told me she did not have any allergies and when I questioned him on
dairy he gave me an emphatic NO SHE DOES NOT HAVE ANY ALLERGIES , MILK
INCLUDED. My gut told me this could not be true, I, after all was the
one who walked the floors with this child wrapped around my mid-section
[the only place that gave her comfort] day and night. The bottom line
here is that she was in fact allergic to the regular formula the soy
formula and all the other dairy products.
This child is now 8 years old lives an almost normal life I.e.: going to
birthday parties and for the most part being able to eat wants offered.
She knows what to avoid, that which has not been treated and will always
bring home a tiny sample of the goodies to treat if necessary. When a
child learns that feeling good can be as simple as bringing home some
samples they are willing participants in their well being. She has come
a long way and will recognize sometime when she is having an allergic
symptom. This treatment gave her her life and mine also.

NAET is a simple technique for a practitioner. It cannot be taught to a
lay person like H.manuver. If you do not perform NAET right, then it may
not work. If you fail the treatment, patient can get worse until treated
correctly again. Because of these possible adverse reactions, lay person
without proper knowledge should not try to treat using this technique.
We only train licensed medical practitioners on naet. We have seen
extreme reactions on few people. So, we take precaution. Practitioners
have been taught how to revive the patients successfully without calling
paramedics to their offices. But anyone can learn NAET- muscle tesing
techniques and avoid the allergens until treated. Number of treatments
depends on many factors like the severity of the disease, age of the
children (the younger they are better they are for the treatment), level
of understanding about the treatment and follow up instructions for 25
hours following the treatments. We have treated some children for 8-10
groups of items and got well completely. But some other children have
taken 40-50 office visits in 2-3 years time to complete all the known
allergies. There is no specific number of visits one can define for
allergy treatments especially in this type of cases.
I hope I answered some of your questions,

If NAET is done right, it works well on any body. If it is not done
right, it doesn't work. Some people may be allergic to few items. and
some others may be allergic to the whole list I posted on the site. If
one is allergic to many items, then, it is for their advantage to limit
their food only to the allergy cleared items, even if they have to eat
just one or two food items. In people with good discipline, NAET works
like magic. Most of my ADD children are back to regular school within
We treat gluten allergy with excellant results. Our success rate is
between 80-95%.in any allergies and allergy-related conditions. The only
essential element is "right NAET treatment". Few practitioners I have
heard that they are modifyng the original NAET treatment. Probably thats
where people are receiving poor results. I can only train them. I cannot
be with them in their offices to supervise the. They will learn
NAET does not conflict with any other treatments or remedies one is
taking. Please read the NAET GUIDE BOOK by DEVI S. NAMBUDRIPAD. I have
answered all these questions in that book. It will answer all your
