NAET Treatments for Pain
by Dr. Marilyn Chernoff
Pain has been known to occur ever since life began and various philosophers of particular times have come up with different definitions and explanations for pain while they were helping the sufferers help or manage pain. Hippocrates described pain as an imbalance in the body humors: Plato, Aristotle, Galen and Descartes all had different theories about pain.
Acute Versus Chronic Pain
Pain can be described according to its cause, physiologic description (neuropathic, visceral or somatic), and/or temporality (acute or chronic). The distinction between acute and chronic pain is no longer considered primarily a function of how long the pain lasts. Instead, acute pain is described as pain that usually has an identifiable pathology and predictable prognosis. Examples of acute pain are a sprained ankle or ear infection. These types of pain usually resolve once treated and healed. Chronic pain, on the other hand, is generally of unclear pathology and unpredictable prognosis, and can be caused by countless diseases, syndromes, injuries, or surgeries. Chronic pain tends to last longer than six months—beyond the expected course of healing.
Impact of Chronic Pain
Chronic pain negatively impacts all aspects of an individual’s life, including emotional, vocational, financial and social elements. The entire family may be dramatically affected, and many feel isolated because they can no longer work or must drop out of their normal activities, thus further isolating themselves from friends and family.
Various therapies and pain medications are available today. Some of them can really be called “wonder” drugs; they work like magic for some people. But others don’t work as well. And some people can’t seem to get any relief no matter how powerful the medication is. In most cases, acute pain responds best to pain medication and pain management therapies. As soon as the pain is relieved, the treating doctor is happy. The patient is happy, until the next episode arrives. Even though he/she might have been examined by the best pain specialist and prescribed the most expensive medication, why did it return? One of the major concerns is why pain goes away in some people but stays on in others for days, weeks, months or even years in spite of medication and extensive therapies.
NAET Treatments for Pain
Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET) is a revolutionary technique that utilizes chiropractic acupuncture, points and meridians along with kinesiology to permanently desensitize a person to an allergen. When an allergic individual encounters an allergen, it can cause blockages in certain organs, cells or systems, which causes allergic symptoms. NAET clears these blockages by reprogramming the nervous system and neutralizing the body’s immune mediators, thereby permanently desensitizing a person to the allergen. Any allergen can be treated in this way including nutrients, environmental, parasites, infections, fungus and more.
NAET testing procedures can track down the cause of many pain conditions including acute pain like migraines, sudden abdominal pain or tension headaches. In addition many chronic pain conditions can also be addressed like fibromyalgia, food sensitivities, irritable bowel syndrome, cluster headaches, joint pain, lower backaches, myofacial pain, peripheral neuralgia, PMS, post-surgical pain, skin disorders, and more. Once the cause is determined, elimination of the cause through NAET is possible.
