Sue - Dr. Irene Dougherty has helped me in so many ways throughout the last decade. I’ve had many issues with different health and emotional problems. Recently, I’ve been having horrific headaches and couldn’t seem to find out what was causing them. I contacted my doctor, had an MRI, went to the chiropractor, and the dentist.

No one could find anything that was causing the headaches, so I made an appointment with Irene, and she was the only one who could help. We had yard work done which required the front yard to be stripped, and new soil and mulch brought in, and when I worked outside my severe headaches started. Dr. Dougherty, an NAET allergy specialist, was able to clear my reaction to what was in the new soil and mulch.

After my first treatment, I went for over a week without a headache. When the headaches returned, I contacted her and she cleared me again. Thanks to Irene, I have been allergy and headache free for weeks now.

Irene is amazing! She was instrumental in saving my daughters life several years ago. I will always be grateful to her and will continue using her for any of my health issues.

N.A.E.T. ® is a non-invasive, drug-free, and natural solution to alleviate allergies of all types discovered by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in 1983. NAET is an acronym for Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques, named after Dr. Nambudripad.

NAET is NOT an instant cure, but it is extremely effective for even the of the most challenging allergies. Allergy elimination requires a minimum of 6-10 treatments to completely neutralize most common allergies. Monthly follow-up sessions are recommended to completely eliminate the worst conditions.

NAET is one of the most effective and successful allergy elimination treatments to alleviate adverse reactions to egg, milk, peanuts, penicillin, aspirin, mushrooms, shellfish, latex, grass, ragweed, flowers, perfume, animal dander, animal epithelial, make-up, chemicals, cigarette smoke, pathogens, heat, cold, other environmental agents. It may take several office visits to desensitize a severe allergen.

NAET uses Muscle Response Testing (MRT) to confirm the presence of allergic reactivity. Once identified, Dr. Irene Dougherty uses NAET techniques, and acupuncture, followed by an optional treatement of Therapeutic Relaxtion by Dr. John Brady. The treatment is geared to re-program the brain's negative responses towards the allergen(s).
