Challenge: Topical or Internal?

As I’ve been researching various skin issues that attack babies, toddlers and adults. I’ve come to this same question over and over again: Topical or Internal?

Earlier in Part 1, we discussed why Jennifer began the journey of NAET to determine if it would be a miracle cure or hoax. Read Part I here. More importantly, if it would help Tristan with his concerns. After the Treatment At the end of each treatment session Tristan could have absolutely no exposure to the substance being treated for a 25-hour period. He couldn’t eat or touch anything made of the substance. So, for example, one time we treated my son for calcium. He could only drink and clean himself with distilled water. That was difficult. Not to mention the many Read More
