Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad discovered “Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques” or NAET for short–a holistic, non-invasive treatment used in eliminating food and environmental allergies often permanently. An acupuncturist, chiropractor, and a kinesiologist in Buena Park, California, Dr. Nambudripad, began conducting research in 1984. Her Goal: Solve physical problems which had plagued her since birth and help others with similar problems. Her research resulted in the development of a new and effective approach for diagnosis and elimination of allergies of all types. Dr. Nambudripad utilized existing medical knowledge from various fields of medicine and combined this with her own discoveries.

NAET was developed by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad, a California acupuncturist, chiropractor, and a kinesiologist, in an attempt to relieve herself of severe allergic symptoms suffered since her birth in Kerala, South India.

While working on her Ph.D. at Samra University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, she observed that people presenting allergic symptoms often responded favorably to acupuncture or acupressure treatment. After recognition of the systemic relationship between contact with an allergen and the resulting neuro-physiological effects produced in the body, she began to discover the key to the mystery of how the brain may be reprogrammed in its response to what it once took to be harmful or toxic.

Her own experience and personal interest led her to develop the method later referred to collectively as NAET, and to specialize exclusively in the diagnosis and treatment of allergies. She has trained more than two thousand medical practitioners from all over the world (chiropractors, acupuncturists, allopathic medical doctors, dentists, doctors of osteopathy, doctors of veterinary medicine are some among the group). To date, thousands of patients successfully have been treated, with permanent and amazing results.

Various studies to prove the effectiveness of NAET are now underway.
