I struggled with painful stomach issues and had a flare-up while in Santa Fe working on a motion picture. I was frustrated after an incredible number of doctors in New York City could do nothing for me. Desperate for help, I did an internet search and found Dr. Irene Dougherty at HeartLight Wellness.


Dr. Dougherty had a 5-Star rating, and I was intrigued that she was also a Loomis Digestive Health Specialist and held a Masters in Acupuncture. I made an appointment with her, and after two visits, I made a huge recovery. I am now symptom-free and healing back in NYC. TJ HEARTLIGHT TINY LOGO 25 X 1png

We all need food to live, but millions of Americans have gastrointestinal problems. If you are one of them, you know how digestive mayhem can control your life and make you miserable! You are not alone ~ over 70 million American's are affected by digestive disorders, resulting in:

  246,000 deaths
  48 million doctor's office visits and 8 million emergency room visits
  6 million diagnostic procedures
22 million hospitalizations
21 million surgeries
  $98 billion, direct medical costs
  $44 billion, indirect costs, i.e., disability and mortality
Sadly, the older we get, the more we suffer from poor digestion. In the last few years, Nexium, the little purple heartburn pill earned $6.3 billion and was the No. 2 best-selling prescription drug in the U.S. Prilosec, Nexium's over-the-counter 'kissing cousin,' collected $billions more.

HeartLight Wellness provides a proven natural, safe, drug-free, non-surgical therapy to put your digestive system back in balance enabling you to get your life and back on track eating your favorite foods!
