NAET® Testing Devices in Detection of Hypersensitivity to Cane Sugar
Background: Studies have noted a correlation between food sensitivities and health disorders. Various commonly seen health problems may be caused by cane sugar since it is lavishly and frequently used by people worldwide.
Objective: This study evaluated the efficacy of NAET testing instruments in detecting hypersensitivities to cane sugar.
Materials and Methods: Seventy-four subjects volunteered for this study. They were asked to write down one of their major health problems, the amount of sugar consumed on a daily basis and any known health problem(s) related to sugar consumption. The following testing modalities were used in the study: (1). Allergy Symptom-Rating Scale (ASRS); (2). NST Rating Scale (NSTRS); (3). Pulse Difference Rating Scale (PDRS). Test-1 was done twice. Tests 2 and 3 were done three times each: once without contacting sugar and then contacting sugar at one minute and ten minutes.
Procedure: NAET Testing Modalities
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
|Official Title:||NAET® Testing Devices in Detection of Hypersensitivity to Cane Sugar|
- The study will evaluate the efficacy of NAET® testing devices in detecting sensitivity to cane sugar (intolerance, hypersensitivity, or allergy) in a group of subjects from both sexes who had no prior knowledge of any health problems related to sugar
- Improve opportunity to get better dietary management and guidance for a better life-style. This may reduce or prevent the risk of sugar-related problems at a later age.
