Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques - NAET
Allergic reactions, according to Dr Nambudripad, are determined by the way in which the brain perceives the substance in question. If the brain considers the substance a threat to the body, it will order the immune system to mobilise its defences to fight the invasion. This manifests as an allergic reaction whose initial signs are generally aimed at chasing the intruder away.

However, more often than not this perception is erroneous and our brain actually betrays us by triggering an inappropriate response. This faulty perception may be due to both cellular mutation or damage which has taken place over several generations and to the difficulties the human body encounters when it has to adapt to a constantly evolving environment (chemicals, climate, processed foodstuffs, technology, etc.).

This is why allergic reactions generally have very little to do with the intrinsic properties of the substances that trigger them. It also explains why some substances are severely allergenic for some individuals but totally harmless or even vitally important (nutrients, for example) for others.

As she further developed this theory, Dr Nambudripad discovered that if the roots of the sympathetic nervous system are given specific stimuli the brain will receive messages that enable it to correct its faulty perception of the substance concerned (the equivalent of a computer reset). These new messages will be permanently imprinted in the brain after a number of other acupressure/acupuncture points have been stimulated, provided the patient follows certain precise rules for a specified time period after the treatment.

This reprogramming constitutes the core part of the NAET methodology.

Testimonials For Adults

"I first went to see Maria 3 months ago as I was struggling with many health problems, including trying to overcome many years of bulimia, binge eating and sugar addiction. I was sick of doing fad diets and I needed help!

Maria designed an eating plan for me and tested me for allergies. Over the forthcoming weeks we worked together on reversing the allergies, addressing the addictions and emotional issues as well as re-introducing foods to achieve a more balanced diet.

My health has improved in leaps and bounds, my skin, hair and digestion, are so much better and the cravings have gradually dissipated over the weeks. I am now able to eat foods that previously would have been the catalyst to a binge.”
Emma, PR Professional, 32 years

Andrew had a lot of bloating, felt tired all the time and could not lose weight, even though he was exercising almost everyday.

We started treating him for the main food sensitivities. He started feeling better after the second treatment and began to lose weight as well as reducing his body fat to muscle percentage.

His bloating stopped and he felt much better.

“Thanks for valued, practical treatments. It has really helped my everyday life!!”

”Maria's NAET treatment and nutritional advice has helped relieve the symptoms I had been experiencing, if not completely eradicate them.

”I am very happy with the results and would highly recommend this treatment to others.”

Testimonials For Children

”'Nicolina, now 11, has been suffering from severe migraines since the age of 6. The main trigger was traced to allergic reaction to chocolate - even the smallest amount of chocolate would trigger a headache, so she had to keep away from it - difficult for a child!

Her mother brought her for treatment, as it happens, just before Easter! And although her mother insisted she had to take it easy over Easter, Nicolina indulged in many a chocolate egg, and has been happily eating chocolate ever since. Her migraine has not recurred!

”Thank you so much for treating my daughter [Gaia] and son [Thomas]. They both have asthma and were accustomed to taking regularly ventolin and flixotide.

”It has been 9 months since we started their treatment and their general health has improved and we have been using much less of these inhalers. The children are calmer and more relaxed.

”NAET has helped them so much and I would recommend it to any person with allergies and intolerances.”
Pamela Aoun

Tina had dry skin on her face and spots on her hand that was getting worse.

After the last treatment her mum noticed that after a week her skin was getting better. After two weeks of the treatment, her skin cleared.

“I do not know how it works, but it does! Tina now has her smooth skin back again”
Tina's Mum

"I took my 2 year old daughter to see Maria a few months as she was suffering from multiple allergies. We had tried seeing a consultant at Great Ormond Street hospital, had lots of tests done, lots of medication given with absolutely no results. 

I was desperate to find a solution as Katerina was suffering and so were we. Maria tested and treated Katerina for countless foods and environmental allergens and also recommended us some vitamins/supplements and probiotics to help heal her gut. At the same time we started cutting down on the antihistamines.

With time Katerina started eating more and more foods - even ones that she was majorly allergic to. We were impressed. Katerina is now 100% better enjoying what she wants and being healthy. Its a true transformation. I would never have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes!"

Katerina also had sessions of cranio-sacral therapy with each appointment as well as NAET

Muscle-energy allergy test
What is it and how does it work?

The muscles in the human body are linked to acupuncture meridians, which rely on the meridian-energy system to diagnose and heal physical and psychological problems.

Muscle-energy allergy testing and kinesiology work by rebalancing the energies in these meridians. There are six pairs of meridians, which correspond to the lung, liver, small intestine, large intestine, spleen and kidney.

The purpose of the muscle-energy allergy testing is to determine whether the specific substance being tested upsets the current energy balance of the body or alerts the brain, even if only briefly.

First, a muscle is tested ‘in the clear’ (with no test substance present). In this case, the muscle will normally test ‘strong’ by displaying ample resistance to any physical pressure that is applied to it.

The body is then briefly exposed to the test substance by placing that substance over the umbilicus, and the muscle is tested again.

If there is a positive reaction to a particular substance, the muscles will go ‘weak, offering less resistance to applied physical pressure. If there is no reaction to the substance, the muscle will again test ‘strong. Each substance is tested separately.

It is generally believed that a muscle goes ‘weak’ because of a subtle change in the energy flowing to it, caused by an energy shift within the meridians.

There are two methods of redressing this imbalance of energy. One is to avoid the substances for which the body has tested positive for a minimum of 3 months. These can then be reintroduced at a later date in small quantities and with less frequency.

The second is to use a desensitising homeopathic remedy, which allow the body to recognise the substance as a non-allergenic one. The person can usually reintroduce the specific food after two weeks (in moderation).

In order to avoid problems, the result of the test will be given at the end of the session.

Cranio-sacral Therapy

I use CST (cranio-sacral therapy) by itself or with Nutritional advice and NAET treatments to integrate the entire body mind system at a deeper level. I notice that the body respond much more to the NAET treatments and the person feels more complete and healthier in body and mind, each time by releasing old patterns and old issue stored in the body. CST has been used for babies as soon as they come into life to help the baby system to settle into a normal rhythm and vitality. Very helpful for mothers as well as it help with rebalance the normal rhythmic motions of their system after their labour that is traumatic or not. See my website for more information.
