Viewing allergies from a holistic perspective and defining them in terms of the allergen’s effect on the energy flow within the body—rather than simply an overreaction of the immune system—may be a key to providing potential relief for an estimated 50 million Americans that suffer from allergic diseases. This holistic point of view is the foundation of a non-invasive, alternative treatment for allergies known as the Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET). Developed by Dr. Devi Nambudripad in 1983, NAET is being used safely on individuals, from newborns to the elderly, by more than 9,000 licensed medical practitioners all over the world.

Information on the NAET website,, purports that most illnesses are caused by undiagnosed allergies that create blockages within the body’s energy pathways, or meridians. According to Nambudripad; illness, pain, inflammation, headaches, fever, heart attacks, strokes and abnormal growths and tumors, as well as various psychological discomforts, are how the brain signals the body about the possible dangers of blocked energy. She notes that while runny noses and sinus problems are the most familiar allergic symptoms, others can take the form of headaches, addictions, autism, attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, autoimmune diseases, anxiety and even joint pain. Allergic symptoms may also be caused by chemical and environmental sensitivities.

Nambudripad also sees NAET as a means of treating healthy individuals with hidden allergies that could cause a future illness, and as a modality that can complement medical therapies that use pharmaceutical drugs. From this perspective, NAET would be used to treat any side effects and maximize the effectiveness of the drugs. Providing relief from existing allergies and from adverse reactions to new allergens in our ever-changing environment, NAET, which reprograms an individual’s energy system, may help eliminate allergies and improve well-being.
