A Day In the Life since NAET

I'm sitting here thinking about all the foods my kid has enjoyed today, many of which have been recently reintroduced since his NAET treatments.  Here's what his day looked like today:

Granola Bar made from Oats, Soy, and Honey--all of which use to cause mega hives.
Taste of egg yolk--he did fine, but waited too long and they got cold.
Corn Flakes w/coconut milk--Corn was a big no-no, always causing a tummy ache

Turkey stick from Whole Foods with lots of spices.

Rice Noodles with Tomato Sauce--tomatoes use to cause hives but are now a favorite.

NAET treatment for yogurt and whey.  We're moving on to milk products!  Next week we're planning on treating for cheese, possibly milk, and pollen before spring really arrives around here.

Annie's Pretzels made from Wheat--this was a first after passing his wheat mix NAET treatment from Monday.  It's been a few hours and so far so good, we'll see if there's any itching at bedtime.

An old standby, grilled chicken & sweet potato with coconut oil and cinnamon.

Veggie Straws, introduced about a week ago as they were previously avoided due to the tomato.

He's made lots of progress and enjoying more foods then ever.  I can't wait for him to have REAL pizza on his 5th birthday, which is coming up in 7 weeks!


  1. Hi,
    I found your blog when I was searching for NAET stories. My 4 year old has been doing NAET for about two months and we're still trying to determine if it's working for us. So far, we did the first basic six and this week, we treated for pollen but we haven't seen any improvements in his overall health or behavior since starting. When did you start seeing results? My husband is kind of over it (he's been supportive without being too involved) thus far but it's costing us $80/week and without having seen improvements two months in, his support is dwindling.

    My son doesn't have eczema but does have severe ADHD like symptoms, chronic congestion and sleep issues... We're also on a gluten/casein/soy/dye/preservative free diet as well as being low salicylate and amine since those t hings cause the behavioral reactions too. I'd just like to know if it's all a hoax or if we should stick it out.

    Thanks for any input!


  2. It's too early to give up yet. Try to stick with it and get through the basics. Have you done yeast yet? That one is typically hard to get through, but you may see results after. We were HIGHLY skeptical going in. Our Ped had 63 kids on various levels of the autism spectrum, he told us 60 of the 63 were responding favorably. It does take patience and time, and in many cases 30 treatments is just the tip of the iceberg. We saw my kid's chronic abdominal hives vanish after the egg treatment (the 2nd NAET treatment), had a heck of a time with yeast where we knew something was going on. Slowly he's becoming less reactive and his body is processing nutrients better. Once we moved onto individual foods it's clear that he's now able to eat so many once forbidden things. Check out the blog to the right called "Owen's Journey", he is a 4/5 YO child on the spectrum that was mainstreamed after going through NAET.

  3. Thanks for the advice, we're going to stick with it for awhile. I've also started supplementing both of my kids with amino acids (glycine, taurine, gaba) to help their body process a lot of the toxins that previously wreaked havoc (salicylates, amines, dyes, preservatives, fumes etc) and the change has been AMAZING. My son's teacher (who I hadn't told about the supplements) came to me and said he's been a completely different kid for the past few weeks, calm and focused and happy. He was previously a ball of energy and all over the place. We're going to stick with NAET too and pursue all avenues to get him healthy. I checked out Owen's Journey and the results are amazing!

  4. Awesome! I'm glad you're finding something that is helping. Keep me posted on your NAET experience, I'm always curious to hear how others respond!
