Our son “Mike,” who has been doing NAET treatments for more than two years now, is doing much better in every way and plans to leave home to go to college in the fall. (He’s 20, transferring from the local community college.) He’s also been taking supplements from the Yasko protocol, but in the past couple of months decided not to take them for his own reasons (checking to see if he really needs them?). He has decided he’s better off taking them, and is starting up again. He’s on a much-abbreviated list of them, as determined by our chiropractor who muscle-tests each one to see whether his body responds positively or negatively to it.
When we started on this journey, at the beginning of this blog in 2007, I wondered whether he would always have to take the Yasko supplements, since they seemed to remediate a genetic deficiency in the way his body works. Or would taking them somehow improve the biochemistry in his body over time? The answer seems to be clear: his biochemistry has improved. He can get along without the supplements now, but he’s better off taking a few of them. The most important one for him is phosphatidyl serine, by the way. Without that one, he can get irritable. Note that his genetic burden differs from other people’s, so you can’t assume what works for him will work for you.
NAET is a treatment that uses Chinese medicine theory (meridians, energy flow). How it works I wonder; I think it has to do with bioelectricity. I can see that it does do some amazing things. Don’t pooh-pooh it just because you don’t understand it!
