Can The Allergy Kit Reduce Symptoms of Autism?

allergykitlogoIt’s no secret that many children with autism suffer from food allergies and other environmental sensitivities. There have been various approaches to dealing with these issues, from special diets to chelation, but these can be expensive, time-consuming, and risky.

The Allergy Kit, an at-home treatment based on the principles of NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques) claims to eliminate the symptoms of several common allergens, in five minutes per day, for only $190.

How does it work?

Basically, the Allergy Kit reprograms the body to respond favorably to foods that previously caused allergic reactions by stimulating acupuncture meridians. Each kit contains seven vials that correspond to a particular allergy. The vial is placed on or near the patient’s navel, touching the skin, while specific acupuncture meridians are stimulated, either through tapping or using a red cold laser, which is included in the kit. The kit also contains an instructional DVD demonstrating how to tap or use the laser. It is necessary to abstain from the offending food or allergen for 25 hours, unless the Premium Laser is used. The Premium Laser is included in the Premium Kit for $290.

The manufacturer recommends using one vial at a time, and waiting at least two days in between vials, to give the body time to integrate the changes. Some allergens, such as gluten and sugar, may need to be repeated several times for optimum results.

Does it work?

Basically, The Allergy Kit is an at-home version of NAET, a medical protocol that can take multiple office visits for maximum results. A 2011 study by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, medical director of The National Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers, published in Integrative Medicine Vol 10, followed 60 children with autism who were randomly assigned to treatment or control groups. The treatment targeted 50 key allergens and took one year to complete. The results were dramatic.

Teitelbaum says,

“After one year of simple treatments, the children showed an average 50 to 75% improvement,”

At the end of the study, 23 of the 30 children in the treatment group were enrolled in regular education classrooms. Parents reported increased speech, eye contact, and better self-care skills, such as toilet training. One participant’s ARI-ATEC score went from an 84 to a 4.

Many families have reported positive results from NAET treatments, but they are expensive and can take time to see results. The Allergy Kit contains everything you need to complete the treatments at home. It targets several common allergies, including pets, eggs, fish, mild, mold, shellfish, tree nuts, and wheat, and can be used to treat various problems, from autism to hay fever.

It is available in two price-ranges, $190 for the basic kit, or $290 for the premium kit, which includes the premium laser which eliminates the need to abstain from the offending allergen. It also comes with a 30 day money back guarantee.

In summary, The Allergy Kit could be an economical alternative to expensive NAET treatments. For more information about The Allergy Kit, visit their website at
