Is NAET an allergy cure or suppressionI am researching the NAET technique, which apparently can cure allergies and intolerances.
However, some thinks that the NAET treatment only suppresses symptoms and drives the original/underlying illness deeper.
I would like to get some more opinions before trying it on myself.
Here's a page about it:

'Most illnesses are caused by undiagnosed allergies' - this is contrary to the experience of homoeopaths and other alternative medicine therapists (they put addictions in here, what complete rubbish).
My understanding is they use acupunture to achieve their results. A well-known and very ancient form of medicine that is fully capable of curing disease on the basis of its own philosophy (energy blockages in the chi). This doctor hasn't discovered anything, and appears to have tacked on some hodge podge orthodox medical or naturopathic theory to explain it.
This happens in homoeopathy too, and it is pretty annoying. 200 years of developing our system of medicine, only to have some pharmacist, doctor or even unqualified charlatan come along and start claiming our hard work as their discovery. I can only imagine how the acupunturists would feel about it - I work with two of them, I might pass this by them see what they think.
Having said all that, if it is indeed Acupuncture, well that is an established and successful system of medicine, so I suppose they may very well get some good results.
I would question some of the results in their study though. 73% of Austistic children were able to return to normal classes? That is almost miraculous. I cannot verify if that is true or not, but it is certainly a bold claim.
I also notice that many patients require over 15 visits - this is quite a lot, and certainly not my experience with homoeopathy for the majority. Some of the patients required over 50 visits - not a very efficient technique in those cases.
