I can't believe that CTV would run a story on NAET that ammounts to little more than a commercial for "Dr. Menghi"!

Grrrr. I hate stories that seem to lend support that bad behaviour in kids is caused by "allergies". Intolerances and / or chemical reactions (as outlined in Dr. Sicherer's book), maybe. But allergies? NO!

I wish they would stop diluting the message so that those of us who have kids with REAL allergies (especially to the fashionble wheat / milk) could be taken seriously!

That therapy is pure bunk.

I don't want to start anything here.

However, I have been taking both my children to a naturopath (myself included), my oldest since 2009.

We have had HUGE successes in So many areas.

And my son had/has 'real' allergies.

We have had many MANY tx done NAET, along with homeopathics and western botanicals.

Don't knock it until you try it!

Fourfallbabies, I'm pretty respectful of the right of others to decide for themselves. So if you've seen progress via this treatment, well, that's good news for you and your family.

But I wouldn't counsel:

A number of us here are dealing with anaphylactic food allergies, so no offense, but I respectfully choose to go with proven science and not to experiment.

Both personally and professionally as the editor of Allergic Living, I look beyond someone saying 'this will get rid of allergies' and ask: 'How does it work?' The NAET system makes no sense scientifically for allergies as it's based on correcting so-called energy blockages. That's not the issue with allergies - food or environmental. Allergies are immune system reactions to specific proteins (food, plant, insect). Energy flow is not involved.

Not to belabour but: I wouldn't mess with this treatment with the risk of anaphylaxis. As this Irish man's death shows, it's not as simple as just trying it to see if it works: http://www.independent.ie/national-news ... 19832.html

Oh no, you didn't offend at all.

I just need to point out the issues - in case folks are dealing with anaphylaxis.
