Purpose of this study is to determine whether NAET procedures are effective in the treatment of crab or shrimp allergy.
Hypothesis: experimental group will show a significant improvement over the control group in allergic symptom, serum crab- or shrimp-specific IgE and skin test for crab or shrimp extract.

|Food Allergies||Procedure: NAET||Not Applicable|
Nambudripad allergy elimination techniques (NAET) were developed by Dr. Devi Nambudripad in 1983. Many patients have been relieved of allergy and allergy-related disease by this treatment.
Lack of well-controlled clinical study prevents NAET from being accepted as a treatment option in current medical system.
The aim of this project is to conduct a double blind-placebo controlled study of applying NAET to treat crab or shrimp allergy.
The parameters to be measured are allergic symptom, crab- or shrimp-specific IgE and skin test before and after NAET treatment

|Official Title:||A Randomized Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Crab Allergy Reduction Study Using Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Techniques in NTU Campus|
|Study Start Date :||June 2012|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||July 2014|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 2014|
Experimental: Crab or shrimp
Intervention: treated with crab and shrimp energy signature vial using NAET
NAET with acupressure and/or chiropractic procedures with the participant holding crab and shrimp energy signature vial
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Treated with water vial
NAET with acupressure and/or chiropractic procedures with the participant holding water vial
- Change from Baseline in allergic symptoms at 6 months [ Time Frame: before NAET and 6 months after NAET ]Symptoms when exposed to crab or shrimp which include symptoms of skin, eye, respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular system and others. The participants give score subjectively from 0 to 10 according to the severity of the symptoms.
- Serum crab- or shrimp-specific IgE [ Time Frame: before NAET, 1 month, 3 months and 6 months after NAET ]
- Skin test [ Time Frame: before NAET, 1 month and 6 months after NAET ]Skin test for crab or shrimp extract
