Hey, I’m up for trying new stuff, don’t know about you. My criterion for new treatments of my children is this: can it hurt them? If the answer is no, and the price is right, I’ll consider it.
So a friend of mine is a practitioner of N.A.E.T. She says this Chinese medicine theory treatment ( including acupressure) helps people with autism as well as those with a host of other immune-system-related issues, especially allergies. (Did you know that allergies, athsma, and autism are all epidemics right now, and they may be connected?) My friend says people who try N.A.E.T. never get worse. Sometimes they get a lot better, sometimes a little bit. She’s been a practitioner for at least 10 years and has lots of experience. In a previous career she was an RN.
My daughter “Shannon” is game to try it. She’s 21 years old, has Asperger’s, sensory sensitivities, difficulty knowing what someone else is thinking.
Shannon had two sessions so far. Right after the next one, she will have to totally avoid a couple of possible allergens for 25 hours. One of them is feathers, and we have two pet birds, so Shannon will have to avoid the part of the house where the birds are.
We’ll keep you posted.
Have you ever tried N.A.E.T (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques)?
