Treating Autism with NAET

What Is NAET?

NAET/Autism Success Story

Developed in 1983 by Devi S. Nambudripad, MD, PhD, L.Ac., DC, Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique, or "NAET," is a non-invasive, drug-free, alternative therapy for allergy elimination that uses a combination of acupressure, allopathy, chiropractic methods, nutrition and kinesiology to identify specific allergens and desensitize patients to them. Dr. Nambudripad has trained over 10,000 licensed medical practitioners in the protocol.

NAET theory holds that many illnesses are caused by undiagnosed allergies, and that many conditions can improve with allergy desensitization, including sinusitis, ADHD, eczema, fatigue, arthritis, autism, depression and asthma.

New Study: Treating Autism with NAET

A new research study titled "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.
