Allergy Elimination

Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET)

A technique for eliminating sensitivities or allergies to any substance (dust, pollens, animals, foods, etc.) by reprogramming the body’s immune system through a specific sequence of energy field and nervous system manipulations.

Individuals with allergies don’t have to spend the rest of their lives in fear or in protective bubbles. Instead, they can get relief from allergies – and many common health disorders that originally started as allergic reactions – through NAET (pronounced “nate”). NAET stands for Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique, a method of desensitizing the body to virtually any allergen without injections, medications or nutritional supplements. It was developed by Dr. Devi Nambudripad, a Chiropractor, Licensed Acupuncturist, Ph.D. and M.D., who devised the unique treatment to overcome her own serious food allergies.

With this technique, Dr. Pickens uses muscle strength testing to determine allergic sensitivities. Then, by tapping, massaging and/or using vibration at acupressure points along the spine and extremities (see Meridian System and Acupuncture in Glossary), Dr. Pickens can actually eliminate individual allergies.

An allergy is an unusual sensitivity to something: foods, beverages, drugs, herbs, vitamins, water, fabrics, chemicals, plastics, plants, animals, etc. Whatever it is, to most people it’s harmless. But to others, it’s a substance their brain sees as a threat. When they are exposed, energy pathways in their body become blocked and they develop symptoms of an allergic response.

Undiagnosed allergies are often the cause of common or chronic illnesses, which when left untreated, can become serious or critical. The brain signals these possible dangers using symptoms that can range from mild to debilitating to life-threatening.

In NAET, allergies are viewed from a holistic perspective based on Oriental medical principles. In Western medicine, an allergy is viewed simply as an overreaction of the immune system. With NAET, the focus is on the effect an allergic substance has on energy flow in the body.

Blockages in the body’s energy pathways can lead to inflammation, pain, headaches, fever, heart attacks, strokes, abnormal growths, and numerous other physical and psychological discomforts. By using NAET to remove the blockages, Dr. Pickens can help your body regain its perfect energy balance so you can achieve optimum health.

Dr. Nambudripad found that allergic imbalances are created when a person’s energy field comes close to the incompatible electromagnetic energy of an allergen. These repulsive forces can cause various types of allergic reactions and disease, all the result of disturbed energy flow and blocked pathways in the body. So, unless they recognize the reaction (to a specific food, substance or living organism), people often continue interacting with these incompatible energies.

As a certified NAET practitioner, Dr. Pickens is trained to identify energy imbalances caused by allergens. During treatment, he stimulates different acupuncture points associated with reactions to individual substances. In this way, Dr. Pickens can gradually eliminate your allergies one by one. NAET treatment is completely natural, painless and non-invasive. It can be safely used on anyone, from newborn infants to the elderly.

NAET also can be used to help lessen the side effects of other medical therapies – such as antibiotics, chemotherapy and radiation.

Through NAET, Dr. Nambudripad was able to restore her health and change her life. Since then, she has trained thousands of doctors around the world in this unique and effective form of treatment – including Dr. Pickens, who is a licensed practitioner of the revolutionary NAET.

BAX 3000 Allergy Elimination System

Taking the treatment of food and environmental allergies and sensitivities to the next level of speed and effectiveness, ABA Family Chiropractic Holistic Health center now utilizes the state of the art BAX 3000. Produced by Bio Allergenix, the BAX 3000 is a very specialized computer and laser combination which works on the same time tested principles as Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET). As with NAET, the BAX 3000 system is 100% painless and safe, but treatments are now faster and stronger using a laser instead of manual stimulation of the body to make the correction. The system, having just become available in early 2008, is FDA cleared and only available to appropriately licensed health care practitioners. We are one of the first in Ohio to make this revolutionary treatment available.

Sitting in front of the BAX system’s Digital Conductance Meter (DCM), a patient is exposed to digitalized frequencies via a radio wave transmitted toward their body. These energetic frequencies match those of the substance(s) the person has been reacting to, such as milk, wheat, household cleaners, food additives, animal dander, dust and pollens. This fools the person’s body into thinking that it is being exposed to the actual items through ingestion, inhalation, and / or contact, thus setting up an imperceptible reaction in their body. At the same time, a small (cold) laser, which emits the same frequencies but at a homeopathic antidote dose, is applied to the central nervous system by shining the light first on the forehead then slowly moving it up over the top of the head and down along the spine to its base. This internally cancels the reaction and in effect reprograms the person’s body (just like with NAET) to no longer react to the substance. During the final portion of the treatment, the laser is applied to specific acupuncture points on the arms, hands, and feet to further strengthen the treatment.

There is no need to rest in the office after the treatment as with NAET, since it is a stronger treatment. The patient does, however, have to avoid being exposed to the substance for 24 hours after the treatment to be fully effective.

BAX Aura

A computer/ laser combination alternative to the BAX 3000, the Aura is often used initially to balance someone who seems to react to everything – foods/nutrients, pollens, dust, chemicals, fabrics, metals, etc.. Usually these “universal reactors” have been sick for many years, have numerous complaints, and have tried many treatments unsuccessfully. In these cases it would take many NAET and/or BAX 3000 sessions to address a sufficient number of sensitivities to begin restoring the person’s health. A quicker approach (with the same end result) is to utilize a 10 session series with the Aura first and undo many of the lesser imbalances/sensitivities, before finishing corrections of the greater ones with the BAX 3000 or NAET.

Muscle testing is not used to determine what to treat with the Aura as it is with NAET or the BAX 3000. Analysis with the Aura is done with the system’s computer feeding frequencies into a person’s body through a special cuff worn on the hand and wrist of an adult or a smaller cuff worn on the thigh or upper arm of a child. The cuff has small metal buttons on the inside which contact a person’s skin to transmit the frequencies of the items being tested into their body. The buttons also in turn register the fluctuations of the person’s energy field in response to the frequencies. The computer then determines the degree of stress, if any, each frequency/item causes. This unique form of biofeedback testing is totally painless, and in most cases, imperceptible by the patient. (Think of the pinging that sonar sends out.) The information acquired each visit from the testing of hundreds of items/energies in several categories is then prioritized by the Aura so the most stressful items/energies can be selected for treatment. This whole process is so fast, it takes no more than 10 minutes to complete.

Treatment is performed similar to the BAX 3000, utilizing a small cold laser over the central nervous system and a number of acupuncture points, however, with the Aura the “stressing” and antidote frequencies are both emitted through the laser itself, rather than using a separate transmitter for the “stressing” frequencies. Also, for additional flexibility and effectiveness, the use of 3 different lasers is possible. In most instances a red laser is used, however, there is a green laser to use when mostly energetic (vs. substance) frequencies are being treated, and an infrared laser for when pain is primarily being addressed.

A waiting period before allowing oneself to be exposed to the substances/energies treated that day is not necessary after an Aura treatment, however, 4 complementary nutritional formulas (2 homeopathic and 2 homeopathic/herbal combinations) must be taken several times per day for the treatments to have maximum effectiveness.

Since 2003, our clinic has utilized NAET with great success in most cases. Many times an allergy or sensitivity that a person has suffered with for many years, or even a lifetime, has been completely eliminated in only energy balancing session. As stated earlier, the BAX 3000 became available in 2008 and the BAX Aura only became available in 2010. Together these systems contain tens of thousands of frequencies which can be tested and treated quickly, painlessly, and effectively through several lasers suited to virtually every situation. This equipment is on the cutting edge of addressing the internal energetic imbalances which contribute to chronic, difficult health issues. You can count on ABA to continue to be a leader in providing the best care possible in the Northwest Ohio/Southeast Michigan area.
