A randomized control trial shows Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET) is an effective treatment for autism. I think the most impressive result was that 23 of the 30 autistic children in the experimental group (23 of 26 who completed the treatment) were able to leave special education classes and return to normal school classes while 0 of the 30 children in the control group were able to do so.
Here are the impressive results:
56 children (26 in the NAET-treated group and 30 in the control group) completed the study. After one year, the children receiving NAET treatments exhibited clinically dramatic and statistically significant improvements in performance compared to the control group, as demonstrated by the mean 68.4% decrease in the total ARI-ATEC Score (compared to the mean 0.8% decrease in the control group; p<0.0001) and the 64% to 82% mean decreases on the 4 ARI-ATEC subtests (all p<0.0001). Similarly, the CARS rating improved by an average of 47.4% among the NAET-treated children, compared to only 0.4% in the control group (p<0.0001); the NST Score improved by an average of 65.5%, compared to a mean improvement of 0.0% (p<0.0001); and the total ASRS Score decreased by an average of 85%, compared to 2.3% (p<0.0001). In addition, NAET treatment also produced statistically significant improvements in each of 30 of the 35 symptoms assessed using the ASRS.
Clinically, 23 of the 30 children in the treatment group were able to return to regular school classes with their healthy, non-autistic peers after treatment while all of the children in the control group continued to require special education.
