Why I think HeartLight Wellness is

Santa Fe's Premier Allergy and Healing Practice ...

Mystery Solved - I want to share my story to help others who are facing challenging health issues.  Before I came to HeartLight Wellness and met Dr. Irene Dougherty, I was having trouble just getting out of bed, and now I get up, enjoy my activities, go out to eat, and do things I used to take for granted.

I struggled for years with extreme fatigue, nagging allergies, muscle weakness, and a host of other unexplained symptoms. I went to see numerous western doctors, and I was told time and time again to stop chasing a diagnosis.

I had to do a lot of soul searching to make my next move. I got up my nerve and shared my situation with a friend who had had similar issues. She recommended that I try Dr. Irene Dougherty at HeartLight Wellness of Santa Fe. She said Dr. Dougherty specializes in difficult cases using a variety of treatments.

HeartLight Wellness is an amazing place. My first visit was a pleasant two hours; almost like visiting a spa. Dr. Irene Dougherty was on time, and she focused entirely on my health concerns. She listened attentively and didn’t rush me—it was a total contrast to my typical doctor's office visit. I was amazed at her patience, caring, compassion, and knowledge.

Dr. Dougherty discovered that my underlying problems were aggravating food and environmental allergies that were affecting my overall health and stress level. It has been such a blessing to understand and improve my quality of life the therapies available at HeartLight Wellness of Santa Fe. HEARTLIGHT TINY LOGO 25 X 1png


I have suffered from chronic nerve pain and insomnia for over ten years. I tried painkillers, sleeping pills, herbal remedies, aromatherapy, and more. The result? Nothing! No change! No sleep! I was at my wit’s end when I found HeartLight Wellness on the web.

I couldn’t believe my luck ~ I found two doctors, Dr. John Brady, and Dr. Irene Dougherty, that finally took my problems seriously.  They are a husband and wife team specializing in chronic cases like mine. John is a Ph.D. Psychologist and a Doctor of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Irene is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and a Master Acupuncturist, NAET Allergist, and Digestive Health Specialist.

John and Irene listened to my concerns, reviewed my medical history, and created a comprehensive treatment plan to address my nerve pain, sleep problems, and stress. My first treatment included acupuncture to eliminate my nerve pain, followed by deep clinical hypnotherapy to neutralize my anxiety and sleep issues. They worked with me for oven an hour, and it helped immediately.

I’m delighted to say that my nerve pain is gone, and my “sleep pattern” is steadily improving. Dr. Brady and Dr. Dougherty, didn't rush me even though they have a busy practice. John and Irene were the most caring doctors I've ever met. I'm sure they treat everyone the same way, but I felt special." CR, New Mexico
