What is applied kinesiology for allergies


NAET canminimize and/or eliminateadverse reactions to the following items:

  1. Chemicals,toxins, perfumes

  2. Physical sensitivities love heat, freezing, dampness, and wind

  3. Pathogens, bacteria, viruses

  4. Computers

  5. Latex

  6. Medications, chemotherapy, vaccinations

  7. Environmental allergens, smoke

  8. Animals

  9. Food,vitamins, herbs

  10. And More


Before beginning treatment, it is highly recommended that each patient readSay Goodbye to Illness, by Dr.

Devi Nambudripad. Each session involves the treatment of one allergen at a time. A person with mild to moderate allergies may require 20 treatments to desensitize 20 allergens. However, highly sensitive people may need up to 50 treatments.​​​


Applied kinesiology, also known as muscle testing, isused first to diagnose the allergen(s). Then a systematic treatment procedure combining acupressure and acupuncture is given to reprogram the brain with a new message about the allergen. After each session, it is necessary to avoid the treated allergen(s) for 25 hours.




Western medicine attributes allergies to an over-reactive immune system where an allergic person is highly sensitive to substances that are often harmless to the majority of individuals. The brain misinterprets the allergen as being a threat to the body’s well-being, and as a result various symptoms arise such as runny nose, sneezing, pain, fatigue, etc.

Western medicine tests for allergies using any of the following methods: Intra-dermal test, Patch test, Scratch test, RAST test, ELISA test. Western medical treatment involves drug therapy (antihistamines or steroids) to control allergic symptoms.

This approach, however, does not always correct the underlying causeand can lead to long-term side effects.

NAET views allergies from a holistic perspective based mainly on Chinese medical theory, which defines an allergen as a substance that creates blockage in the functioning of the body. This blockage interferes with proper nervous system communication between the brain and body which eventually leads to an allergic response. In other words, there is an imbalance between the electromagnetic energy of the person and the allergen which then causes symptoms in the person’s body.

Entire health declines over time if a person’s body pathways are continually blocked due to the presence of allergies.

Once a person has been completely treated for a specific food or environmental allergen, it is no longer necessary to avoid it because of the body’s reprogramming. Until the discovery of NAET, finish avoidance of the allergen was the most effective treatment option which can be hard and sometimes impossible.


Patricia K. – Her 8 year ancient son had anaphylactic allergy to wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets.

“I’m writing you to tell you excellent news!

Two weeks ago Lukas was playing at a friends home. Gustavo and I were there, too. Suddenly Lukas screamed saying that a wasp or yellow jacket stung him. Now you know my reactionJust because I didn’t bring his EpiPen neither Benadryl!!!! He had two spots: one on his arm and one on his bottom. We put ice and wait, and wait, and wait, and wait……n o t h i n g h a p p e n e d. It even didn’t get swollen! I was really impressed and even had doubts if it was a wasp. His friends’ dad went exterior and found one yellow jacket nest. We were so happy, and Lukas is feeling so secure about himself, you need to see that!I’m still going to be extremely careful and carry his medicine everywhere, but it is such excellent news!

Thanks for every you’ve done for him and this treatment!”

Elsa M. – Her 3 year ancient kid had peanut anaphylaxis and signs of autism after the MMR vaccine.

“Helena is doing better than grand. I seriously don’t understand what every is happening with these treatments but I feel love you own given me my kid back. She is “unlocked”. I can’t really describe it fully, every day yesterday she was hugging Jon and I (in a sweet way- not a clingy way) and then, Boom! Three expression sentences. Her stool has continued to be solid too. I almost desire to weep talking about it. Thanks so much Nicole. I desire the whole world to know about you.

I feel that you own the ability to positively affect so numerous lives. Whatever the outcome, I would love to assist you in whatever way you see best. My heart aches for every of these parents that are just living with the uncertainty of a life-threatening reaction and worse, the day to day behaviors of their children that they believe are normal.Also, this morning she got up in my face in a sweet way and was looking at me saying “mommy”, “mommy” “mommy” and wanting me to kiss her face.

She will sometimes let me kiss her but it is ALWAYS me approaching her. Subtle to some, but to me –Worth a million dollars. I thank God for leading us to you. Please continue helping as numerous children and parents as you can.”

BrenD. – She had a kidney disease and exhaustion.

“I came to Nicole with an undiagnosed kidney disease and an overall physical exhaustion. High levels of protein and microscopic levels of blood were “spilling” over from my kidneys and the only solution was to get a biopsy and treat the symptoms with high blood pressure medication.

I was not willing to take Rx drugs regularly, and was desperate to discover an alternative solution.

What is applied kinesiology for allergies

It seemed that every the symptoms pointed out that my kidneys were working too hard. Western medicine recommended treating the symptoms through blood pressure medication, and in sever cases, chemotherapy. My curiosity ran deeper, and I wanted to treat the cause. I decided to investigate underlying allergies that could be causing inflammation. A friend recommended that I glance into NAET, which then led me to Nicole.

What is applied kinesiology for allergies

I was skeptical at first but after experiencing her treatments, I am so extremely grateful to own found her! During my treatment, we addressed a range of foods that my body was reacting to, in hopes that my body would stop working against itself. The treatments were quick, informative, and relaxing. My exhaustion began to fade and a month after I completed treatment with Nicole, I had blood work and a urinalysis performed. My results were AMAZING, with the level of protein being cut in half. I could not believe it – especially after such a short period of time! My medical doctor has since recommended that we monitor my kidney function instead of doing a biopsy and treating with Rx drugs.

I am so pleased with these results, and so grateful to own found such a amazing care provider in Nicole.”

Letter from School Program Director to Parents of Veritas Christian Academy in Asheville, NC encouraging parents to attempt NAET for Autism:

"Dear Parents, Mrs. Belknap [Head of School and patient of Nicole’s at the time] asked me to share an article with you concerning the results of a study on children with allergy-related autism through the use of NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques). Mrs. Belknap and her family own used NAET to successfully alleviate food and inhalant allergies.

NAET was discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in November of It is a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to alleviate allergies of every types and intensities. The study concluded that through NAET treatments, children with autism showed a significant means decrease in their CARS rating (Childhood Autism Rating Scale) and highly significant improvements in the areas of lecture, language, communication skills, and other autistic behaviors. The most marked improvements were seen in abdominal bloating, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anger, autism, fatigue, joint pain and sinusitis.

Even if your kid does not show signs of allergies, it is worth your time to investigate the positive effects NAET techniques can own on autism."

Julia C. – Her 8 year ancient son had autism and ADHD.

“If you own read the study, you are probably thinking it sounds “crazy” or “too excellent to be true. If you haven’t read it yet, you will probably be thinking that too! We started using NAET treatments for our kid with High Functioning Autism and ADHD 6 months ago. It has been an incredible journey and one that I would own never expected to result is so numerous positive changes.

Looking back, I am certain this has been God’s plan for our child.He had us at the correct school. I had read the study but not pursued treatments. Then I found out someone I respected at the school had successfully used NAET treatments for other allergy issues. We had somehow put more money in our Health Care Spending account than we would be capable to use this past year. Knowing that our kid had issues tolerating dairy, we decided to attempt the treatments. We thought that maybe it would decrease the effects when he unknowingly ate dairy. It turned out he had trouble tolerating a lot more than dairy. We had a plan to attempt 10 treatment sessions just to see if it worked.

We certainly had doubts about starting NAET since we are trained in more traditional medicine ourselves.

The results were not obvious at first, but gradually he had the ability to eat foods that had bothered him with no reaction. We continued with the NAET treatments.Over the course of the past 6 months, he has successfully come off of ADHD medications, sleep medications, and now enjoys foods he previously had to avoid. The positive changes didn’t just finish there. The best description I can ponder of is to tell it’s love a fog has been lifted out of his brain.

He is present and we own genuine conversations love never before. We own seen more consistent grades, varied interests, a desire to participate in activities that he had never been willing to attempt before, improved coordination and the list goes on.Christmas Holidays own always been a stressful time but not this year after NAET treatments. Our kid used to spend most of the holiday season anxious about every the events and people he sees only once a year. This year he happily went into parties with no coaching and actually hugged some extremely surprised relatives.When asked about NAET treatments, I still start by saying “this is going to sound crazy” and even still own a hard time grasping how this could actually work.

What I know is that it worked for our child.

The treatments themselves are simple for him as there are no needles or pain involved. The hardest part was avoiding the substance being treated for the 25 hour time period. It was significant to follow the directions from the NAET provider, otherwise the treatments would likely not work.While I can’t tell it will assist every children with autism, we don’t remorse trying NAET for a second!”

Follow up after the completion of NAET treatments:

“We just had George evaluated by a psychologist to see if he was still on the [autism] spectrum and to assess for any possible learning disorders.

He spent 2 hours on 3 separate days and didn’t see any signs of him being on the spectrum! In fact he felt love it would be a waste to own parents/teachers fill out the evaluation forms for autism. He did own us and teacher fill out the ADHD forms and those came back as Normal too! He does own a motor processing delay which will permit him to own more time on tests, etc. We can’t thank you enough for helping George!”

Barbara K. – She had digestive complaints.

“I am so grateful for NAET and Nicole Peterson! Without this treatment, I really don’t know what would own happened to me! I had severe diarrhea from multiple food intolerances before the treatments and had lost much too much weight.

(I weighed lbs. and am 5’5”.)Now that I own completed the treatments, the diarrhea has stopped and I am regaining weight. This technique is truly amazing and I strongly recommend it to anyone suffering from food allergies/intolerances.”

Sara O. – She had dairy intolerance.

“I own suffered with lactose intolerance and intolerance to milk proteins for about 14 years before I knew what it was.

After having two treatments of the NAET, I could eat dairy again without the relax of the day or two days being ruined with gastrointestinal problems! Twenty five hours after the final treatment I ate dairy and haven’t stopped yet! I really do feel love this has changed my life! I can enjoy food again!”

Aubrey A. – She had overall poor health after the birth of her third child.

“I started my NAET treatments with Nicole a little over a year ago.

After the birth of my third kid, my health never seemed normal. I started taking supplements such as Vitamin C, a Multi-Vitamin, Vitamin D, Calcium and started some herbs. This actually made me feel worse. I started experiencing flu love symptoms, body aches, low grade fever, pain on either side of my body, bladder irritation. I went to an acupuncturist in Florida who gave me some herbs for the flu. I started taking those and began experiencing heart palpitations, internal chills, diarrhea, brain fog, anxiety.

What is applied kinesiology for allergies

I actually thought I was having a nervous break down.

I had ordered the NAET book after reading some of the info online about it. After reading just a few chapters I knew this might be what was incorrect with me. I stopped every supplements and herbs. Within a week I saw a huge improvement. I would still own bad days and began to see a pattern with what I had eaten the day before. I always knew I was allergic to certain herbs and medications growing up but not really food. After beginning my treatments I felt worse at first, but gradually started to see an improvement.

Sugar took multiple treatments and was the hardest for me to pass but once I did I no longer had cravings for sweets, for me that was HUGE. I had a range of symptoms during my treatments most described in the NAET companion book.

Some of the biggest improvements I saw were after passing Calcium, no more brain fog.

What is applied kinesiology for allergies

Vitamin C was part of my bladder irritation and muscle aches. Hormones helped with my PMS. After being treated for viral stir I no longer got freezing sores, and my overwhelming fatigue disappeared. This has been a truly amazing experience for me, and I know I would own spent 10s of thousands of dollars at a regular doctor and still not know what was incorrect with me. Nicole is grand because she teaches you how to treat yourself and that empowers a patient to continue their health care at home.

I own had shut to 20 treatments by Nicole and own treated myself for dozens of things that annoy me. I own also had my son go through the basic treatments (7 total) and now my husband is doing the same. It has been a little investment that I know will save our family much money below the road. NAET has truly gave me my life back as well as helping me understand my body! I continue to treat myself and visit Nicole when I need additional assist. I would recommend NAET %, without a second thought.”

Virginia D. – Her 2 year ancient daughter had chronic diarrhea.

“NAET has had amazing results for our 2-year ancient daughter. She has always had trouble digesting sugars which gave her chronic diarrhea.

After treatment with Nicole, she can now eat and drink everything with no problems at every. Her immune system has also drastically improved. Before NAET, she would get ill every other week it seemed love, but now it is much less frequent. It has really been a life saver to us.”

Stephanie B. – She had numerous allergies including being allergic to her cat.

“Thanks to my daughter for researching and finding Nicole for me.

What a blessing. As an NAET certified practitioner, Nicole first took a thorough medical history and explained the acupuncture treatments that she would be using to relieve me of numerous allergies. Some of the allergies I had were fairly unusual, but Nicole was happy to discover the correct treatment. It is amazing to me how these procedures work so well. I will miss Nicole when I finally run out of allergies, but I’m grateful that I can now eat whatever I desire and can now enjoy my cat without the itching and breathing difficulties.”


Laurel W. — She had springpollen allergies.

"Thank you Nicole!

I feel lighter and happier today! Allergies are way less! It's amazing! So grateful to you. Really lookingforwardto my next visit."


  1. Environmental allergies

  2. Vaccine reactions

  3. Autism

  4. Eczema, rashes, and acne

  5. Low immunity

  6. Digestive complaints — bloating, gas, leaky gut, indigestion

  7. Migraines and headaches


  9. Food allergies or sensitivities

  10. Autoimmune diseases



Allergies are the result of imbalances in the body and can be caused by one or more of the following factors:

  1. Heredity

  2. Physical and emotional stress or trauma

  3. Low immune system functioning

  4. Malabsorption,digestive disorders, and leaky gut

  5. Environmental toxins

  6. Toxins produced in the body from infections, yeast, parasites, and heavy metals​


Food Allergy Diagnosis

History is the most significant step in the diagnosis of food allergy.

Testing by itself is not dependable, studies own shown a % untrue positive rate (positive test but no reaction with exposure). A test is not positive until there is a positive test plus either a strong history ( ie- ate food and quick onset of reaction) or an oral challenge.

What is applied kinesiology for allergies

There are a handful of studies that have show if the skin test reaction reaches a certain size or if the blood level of IgE reaches a certain threshold, then the positive predictive worth (PPV) significantly goes up (in the case of peanut the PPV can reach near %).

PPV= proportion of positive test results that are true positives.

Skin prick (percutaneous skin testing)- SPT
Used to identify the food(s) that may be causing an IgE mediated food allergy.

With an SPT a needle is used to put a tiny quantity of food extract (or unused food) just under the surface of the skin on your lower arm or back.

  1. SPTs are virtually pain free
  2. A positive SPT result is a raised bump with redness around it, called a wheal and flare. This occurs when a food allergen reacts with its IgE antibody.

  3. The results of an SPT usually appear within minutes.

  4. A positive SPT result does not mean that you are allergic to the food. A positive result shows that you own made IgE antibodies to the food.

  5. SPTs can identify foods against which you have made IgE antibodies.

  6. Occasionally, even when the food allergy involves IgE, negative SPT results do happen. (false negative)

Allergen-specific IgE in the blood

  1. Measuring IgE levels can be useful in identifying possible food allergens.

  2. The results of IgE testing and SPTs do not always match up.
  3. Serum testing can be especially useful if SPTs cannot be done. For example, SPTs cannot be done when you own extensive eczema or when you need to take antihistamines.
  4. Undetectable IgE levels occasionally happen in people with food allergy involving IgE.

Oral food challenge test
Note: Because an oral food challenge test always carries a risk, it must be performed by a healthcare professional trained in how to conduct this test and at a medical facility that has appropriate medicines and devices to treat potential severe allergic reactions.

An oral food challenge test includes the following steps:

  1. You are given doses of various foods, some of which are suspected of triggering an allergic reaction.

  2. You are watched to see whether a reaction occurs. The first sign of the reaction , the test is stopped (this is a test for +/- allergy, not to test severity of reactions).
  3. You swallow each dose.
  4. If an oral food challenge test results in no symptoms, then food allergy can be ruled out.
  5. Initially, the dose of food is very little, but the quantity is gradually increased during the challenge.
  6. If the challenge results in symptoms and these symptoms are consistent with your medical history and laboratory tests, then a diagnosis of food allergy is confirmed.

Predictor of severity of reactions

Allergy testing is not a gauge of severity of reaction.

In general the larger the skin reaction and the higher the specific IgE is the more likely it is a true positive (but untrue positive results always exist). Also, the larger the skin reaction and higher the specific IgE the higher likelihood of more severe reaction.

The tests are just a test for the presence of IgE antibodies produced by your body for specific proteins (peanut, casein, whey, egg etc.).

How your body responds to the presence of these antibodies is the root of the reaction severity.

Example: A person can own a extremely large skin test reaction (20mm wheal) and specific IgE > and only own a few hives or even no reaction with exposure. Another person can own a skin teat with a little skin reaction (4mm wheal) and blood testing specific IgE 5, upon exposure to the protein they own an anaphylactic reaction.

Tests that should not be done for the diagnosis of food allergy.

(either dangerous or a waste of money)

Intradermal test: An intradermal test is performed by injecting a little quantity of allergen into
the skin. There is no clinical evidence to show that intradermal testing is more useful than an SPT to diagnose food allergy. The untrue positive reactions are extremely extremely high. You also are much more likely to own a severe adverse reaction to an intradermal test, compared with an SPT.

Total serum IgE: There is not enough clinical evidence to show that measuring entire serum IgE levels is sensitive or specific enough to diagnose food allergy.

IgG testing, ALCAT, Cytotoxic testing, Applied kinesiology, NAET testing- none of these testing modalities are supported by and scientific studies. Numerous own studies that totally refute any utility and are not valid. Not worth our time (yours and mine) to further go into detail.


NAET, Allergy Elimination Technique, is anatural therapy used to treat allergiesofall types using acupuncture, acupressure, and applied kinesiology.

NAET was discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad, DC, LAc, PhD in and can be used safely on everyone including infants and children.

What is applied kinesiology for allergies

Her son Dr. Roy Nambudripad, MD continues her legacy by maintaining anNAET practice in Los Angeles and training NAET practitioners globally.



N.A.E.T. Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique

What can be tested?

Any substance brought into the bio-electromagnetic field of the patient, can elicit a response via the central nervous system. Actually, any mineral, vegetable, animal substance, chemical compound, or physical agent in contact with the body, even a homeopathic remedy, can trigger this response.

So in fact, anything in the environment can be easily tested without the use of invasive measures.

Subconscious & Conscious Mind

Our brains own a natural, built-in, subconscious function controlling the immune system which has the potential of keeping us allergy free. What Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad has developed is a technique that consciously focuses the brain on a single allergen while clearing the blocked energy formerly associated with that allergen.

This technique can successfully desensitize the body in order to achieve an allergy free state. Dr. Nambudripad’s research has shown that when major allergies are eliminated and the immune system is strengthened, the body resumes normal healing and homeostasis.

What is an allergy?

An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity to one or more substances which may be harmless to the majority of other individuals.

The allergic substance, known as an allergen, is viewed by the brain as a threat to the body’s well-being.

What is applied kinesiology for allergies

Therefore, for our purposes, an allergy is defined in terms of what a substance does to the energy flow in the body. When contact is made with an allergen, it disrupts the normal flow of energy through the body’s electrical circuits which are called meridians. Interference in communication between the brain and body, via the nervous system, occurs when the energy flow in a meridian becomes blocked. This blocked energy flow is the first step in a chain of events which can develop into an allergic response.

What is N.A.E.T.?

Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique, also known as N.A.E.T., is a safe, effective, natural approach to detecting and eliminating every types of allergies.

N.A.E.T. combines techniques from Kinesiology (muscle strength testing), Chiropractic, and Oriental Medicine, to clear allergic reactions through a “reprogramming” of the brain. The actual technique used involves light acupressure applied along both sides of the spinal column in an area where the energy flow of a meridian intersects with the nerve roots.

How do you test for allergies?

A N.A.E.T. Specialist uses applied kinesiology techniques to act out a simple muscle response test confirming a suspected allergen. In the case of animals, infants, extremely young children, the elderly and infirm, a surrogate test subject is used.

The principle is the same, however, in determining if the body in question has developed allergic responses to the environment around it.

The brain recognizes whatever substance comes shut to the body, especially what comes in direct contact with it. When an allergen is discovered it is because the brain has perceived that substance to be a threat to the body. Consequently, the energy flow in a meridian is disrupted, and the resulting interference in communication between the brain and the body, evokes a weakness in the tester muscle.

In this way it is possible to communicate with the brain of the patient by triggering a mild response to the allergen when the substance is placed in contact with the body. Lastly, reflexology may be used to pinpoint the blocked areas within a meridian while the allergen is in contact with the patient.
