How does NAET work?
NAET utilizes the combination of kinesiological muscle response testing (MRT), electromagnetic fields, meridian points and spinal stimulation to reprogram the brain and nervous system to no longer react to an allergen. Once the body accepts the reprogramming, it heals itself.
Applied Kinesiology originated in 1964 through the work of Dr. George Goodheart and is the practice of using manual muscle strength testing for medical diagnosis and for the determination of prescribed therapy. Kinesiology and its muscle response testing (MRT) method is fundamentally used in NAET to detect your sensitivities and allergies as well as to receive feedback on how your body is doing.
Everything on earth has an electromagnetic field, including foods, pollens, hormones, neurotransmitters, in fact anything you can think of. Vials that are imprinted with an electromagnetic field are used in NAET to represent hundreds of items. When a vial is held, the body will register exactly what that item is and will know whether you are compatible with it or not through muscle response testing. Non-compatibility means you have a sensitivity or are allergic to the item.
Once the allergen has been identified, treatments using spinal stimulation and acupuncture meridian points are used. Acupuncture theorizes that a person’s life force or chi flows through energy pathways identified as "meridians". When these meridian pathways are blocked, symptoms and illness will present. The Chiropractic originators taught that chemicals and allergies could cause disruption of correct nerve transmission. With this understanding, Dr. Devi Nambudripad realized that holding an allergen would start the process of meridian and nerve disruption. She theorized that if she opened and balanced the meridian flow and worked with the spinal nerves including stimulation of the sympathetics in the thoracic spine while holding the allergen, the body would reprogram itself to accept the allergy. This proved to work, and the breakthrough NAET treatment was born… working with a wide range of environmental, food and chemical allergens.
