The first step in diagnosing an allergy is to take a thorough patient history, including chief complaint, present history, past medical history, family history, and social history, history of activities, hobbies and nutrition. It will be beneficial to obtain a thorough record of any allergic symptoms in the patient's family, tracing back two or three generations if possible.
Then run all traditional allergy testing procedures and laboratory testing procedures such as complete blood count, total immunoglobulin E studies, IgE specific studies using RAST or ELISA, serum Tryptase, Scratch test, etc.

NAET uses acupuncture or acupressure or both on specific acupuncture points.
How many treatments are needed? It is entirely from individuals to individuals depending on various factors: age, severity of the symptoms, duration of the illness, the immune system status at the time of treatment and the willingness of the patient to cooperate with the treatment program and follow-up instructions. On the average, the treatments may range from 10 to 50 or more needed in more severe cases.
