NAET Virginia - Testimonials

 
 

This week we were at the beach. It was the first time in Beatrice's life that she wore a dress with NO sleeves, NO long pants and NO socks. She ran on the beach with her brothers like a normal almost-3-year-old. There was no scratching, no blood and no crying. It was the absolute best time we've had in the last almost 3 years. I NEVER thought I'd see the day. Six months ago I'd given up hope at ever having my baby girl go in short sleeves and no gloves. She was so incredibly itchy all over her body that she would scratch until there was blood and her skin was GONE. She was in ScratchSleeves that covered her hands all the time, day and night. The doctors had given up on her. They all claimed it was eczema and nothing else could be done. It wasn't eczema though. It was food rashes. She was allergic to ALL foods except rice, pork and beef. I tried so many things... diets, creams, supplements. NOTHING helped. She didn't talk much, her little face was puffy (I'm sure her brain was too), her skin was inflamed and HIGHLY itchy all over. It was the most miserable time of my life. We all cried for her and prayed for healing every day. Then when the natural medicine doctor gave up on her, she suggested looking into NAET. I researched it. I was very skeptical. But I was so incredibly desperate to get Beatrice some relief. I made an appointment... but then I cancelled it thinking there was no way it would work... I was done being hopeful, trying something and then being completely disappointed time and time again. Then one day at my boys' martial arts class, 2 moms told me about NAET!! I know it was God putting them in my path. So I made an appointment with Ana Mahoney at NAET Virginia and stuck with it. It's been slow and required a lot of faith but it worked! Beatrice is now eating many foods that she was very allergic to and she's in SHORT SLEEVES and running on the beach and TALKING like a normal child. This is a miracle! A true miracle! Thank You God!! I have tears in my eyes thinking about all my sweet baby has gone through. And now we're so happy and extremely grateful to Ana!!

I have suffered from chronic fatigue for the better part of a decade, and am finally seeing a significant improvement in my symptoms, thanks to Ana and NAET treatments.  I acquired several autoimmune issues in my late 20’s – arthritis, seasonal allergies, and under-active thyroid, and by the time I reached my early 40’s I was experiencing strong fatigue on a regular basis.  I went into menopause at an early age and was also diagnosed with PCOS around that time.  I also had many symptoms of estrogen dominance.  My chronic fatigue got to a point where I had to call in sick to work 2-3 times a month.  I often felt like I was just a day or two away from a full-blown flu.  My symptoms ranged from sheer exhaustion, sore throat, sinus problems, dizziness, inability to concentrate, and a feeling as if I was coming down with a chest cold.  After years of exhaustion I also had very little patience or tolerance.  I never lost all hope, but my reserves of hope for a full life dwindled dramatically.  The little energy I had went into work, and very little beyond that got done.  The thought of cleaning house or spending a day running errands was overwhelming.   I was not engaged in life, having no energy to date, work on hobbies, or get out and get active.  I was truly dragging myself from one day to the next, week after month after year.

I consider myself extremely fortunate in that I mentioned getting allergy shots in front of a co-worker who was taking his son to Ana for NAET treatments.  Since I had tried mainstream medicine for many years with no improvement, I decided to give this a try.  Ana is a person of strong integrity.  She told me up-front that it could be a number of months before I noticed a real difference in my energy level because I had so many issues.  In fact, getting better did involve an investment of time and money – worth every single penny.  I have been treated for dozens and dozens of allergies, ranging from environmental, food, compounds within foods, and hormones.  It took time to address a majority of my allergies and begin to feel true relief, just as Ana predicted.  It took many years, perhaps decades, for my body to get in its poor state, and real work was required  to repair it. 

When I started with Ana, it was very difficult to tell when something specific was bothering me because there was so much “noise” from all of my allergies.  Today, it is much easier for me to recognize when something is causing a reaction (most recently prednisone), allowing us to be more specific in tackling the problem.  Much of my exhaustion has been lifted and I have re-engaged in life, taking walks, picking up guitar again, and socializing more often.  Compared to the bad-old-days when I often felt the overwhelming urge to crash back into bed for a multi-hour nap every day, I am now able to get through most days without one.  I truly have my life back now, and I attribute this to NAET.  Ana is not just a practitioner of NAET.  She is a true healer, and she has made all of the difference in my recovery.  I heartily recommend Ana and NAET treatments to anyone who is suffering as I was.  I wish all of you the best in your search for better health.

I love all types of nuts. This summer, I developed an allergy to nuts that resulted in my throat feeling constricted when I ate only a few nuts – peanuts, almonds, pecans.  After a month of this not going away and actually getting worse, I knew I needed assistance.  My wife and daughter had been successfully treated byAna Mahoney using NAET, so I gave it a try based on their success.  Miraculously, after a couple months of treatments, my allergy is gone and I am once again enjoying all types of nuts.  Ana is extremely knowledgeable, but also very perceptive and intuitive, and I was thoroughly impressed by her ability to remove my allergies.

Thirteen months ago, I was suffering from severe rashes on several parts of my body.  My dermatologist was of little help,  ultimately sending me off with a prescription for 1 lb  jars of cortisone cream, which I had told her didn't help me.   I even had to go to urgent care at one point and get a course of Prednisone because the itching and inflammation was so bad.  It was then I knew I had to seek some form of alternative health care if I wanted to get well.  Several years ago I had been introduced to NAET in another state and had gotten good results so I looked up local practitioners (I live in Williamsburg, VA, 50 miles from Richmond).  It was clear from Ana's website that this was where I needed to go:  NAET Virginia.  Since then I have had many visits to her office and during each visit I was treated for several of my multitudes of allergies:  From vitamins, to chemicals to foods of all kinds,  to many plants, trees and grasses and on to several of my inherited metabolic pathway deficiencies:  I was a prime candidate for NAET.  And in on top of that, many times during these treatments I had emotional blockages to my energies that had to be resolved before I could be treated…it was here that I learned that Ana was also very skilled at psychological diagnosis, therapy and counseling.  

But the skill and speed at which she analyzed the information from muscle kinesiology is nothing short of amazing!   Even determining the time period when I came in contact with a particular substance.  Our bodies hold a tremendous amount of information about our health and wellbeing if only we know how to access it,  and without question, Ana knows how to access that information.  This was not a fast process because I had so many allergies, and there were times when I thought I'd never be free of the itching. Of course each time I got better, I'd introduce something else into my diet or environment that would set my recovery back but it was best to get all of that cleared away.  She has also taught me how to self treat anything that I know is bothering me.  This is a true gift!!

One of the biggest gifts I received, however, had nothing to do with my allergies, but with my eyes.  I have a specific type of wet Macular Degeneration called Ocular Histoplasmosis due to an infection with a fungus, Histoplasmosis, which I encountered during my childhood in Ohio.  I've had this condition for at least 38 years and in the past was treated with a hot laser to stop the progression of the disease.  As a result I have little central vision in one eye, but I do have peripheral vision.  The acuity of this peripheral vision would come and go since I still had episodes of inflammation in the eye which would separate the choroid from the retina and cause major blurring.   When I mentioned Histoplasmosis to Ana said she could treat for that.   And she did, and then boosted me several times with all sorts of substances.   The diagnostic OCT scan that my Retina Doctor did after NAET treatment was strikingly improved!!  No need to do double blind studies on this treatment.  It's the best my peripheral vision has been in that eye since it was last "lazered" in 2000.

Ana Mahoney is a skilled, knowledgable, experienced and caring practitioner of NAET whose services I would recommend to anyone. Her fees are also very reasonable. Wow!  NAET is incredible. Ana's depth and breadth of knowledge about food and environmental allergens is unbelievable.    All of that knowledge goes to work for you with a passion for eliminating your irritants, not just masking them.

About 2 years ago in the desperation of an insomnia fit brought on by an incessant and incredible itching, I found Ana.  I had to reach beyond my desperation and try to logically understand why I was so special that I could feel the biting of minuet mites (ones that are around us all the time) but no one else around me could feel them.  In a moment of lucid thinking, I deduced that it was an allergy.  So I googled Richmond, allergy, and parasite and Ana appeared. 

Located just blocks from my home, Ana is the only one that gave me hope. Not my doctor, counselor or family and friends could help.    Ana logically and methodically worked through and eliminated my layers of allergies, allowing me to reestablish my life.  It took about a year and a half, but was worth every minute and dollar.  Now cured and enlightened, any time anyone I come into contact with tells me they suffer from migraines, fibromyalgia, are gluten or lactose intolerant, etc.,  I recommend Ana.  NAET is amazing.

I began NAET unsure of the roots of my various physical symptoms and without any feasible path to getting better. Ana not only helped me physically grow stronger, but also supported me emotionally when I struggled with the changes I was going through and the reactions I experienced. NAET has truly helped me become a happier and healthier person.

When I came to Ana for NAET, it felt like my last shot at health.  I had spent 4 years going from doctor to doctor.  Being hospitalized for unknown heart problems.  Every test would come back with no answers and I was getting more sick each day.  I could not care for my children anymore and at times myself.  Someone told me about NAET and I thought "I have nothing to lose".  I thought it if this does not work, than some day in the next year my heart will stop and I will die, and no one will ever know why.

I have been receiving NAET treatments from Ana for a year now.  I no longer need a nanny to help me with my two children.  I bounce out of bed every morning ready to face a day and have not been in the hospital with heart conditions for over a year now.  I no longer lay in bed or on a couch all day but instead am running through the yard playing soccer with my kids with no ill effects.

Ana listens to her patients and not only treats your symptoms, but desires to find out the reason why you are in the state you are in.  It is not a pill to cover symptoms; the cause of your problems is being treated and removed from your body. I will be forever grateful for Ana's dedication and caring treatment of me through NAET.

I decided to try NAET for my son because he had very bad year-round allergies. Even with over-the-counter allergy medication, he was spending an hour every night at bedtime sniffing and blowing his nose. He also had many headaches. One of his worst allergies was to cats, which was difficult for him because he loves cats. After being treated by Ana, my son is no longer stuffy at bedtime and rarely has headaches. His cat allergy is completely gone.

When I saw that this was working for my son, I decided to try it myself. I have had migraines for about 35 years, which can be severe and debilitating. The migraines were very frequent and would last for many days at a time. I was often taking over-the-counter and prescription medication for the headaches so that I could function. I tried just about everything, including traditional Western medicine, physical therapy, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal supplements, and chiropractic treatments. None of those approaches made any real difference, but NAET did.  As I went through Ana’s treatments, my headaches became very rare and often milder. I would estimate that I am only having 20% (at most) as many headaches now as I did prior to treatment. I would highly recommend Ana’s NAET treatments for those who are suffering from migraines and allergies and have been frustrated by the failure of other approaches.

When I started de-sensitation therapy with Ana Mahoney December 2012 I was suffering from multiple food allergies with reactions on a daily basis. The reactions were extremely painful and included severe full body hives attacks, asthma attacks, severe stomach pain and bloating, bladder infections, daily and relentless, alternating hyper-energy and extreme fatigue, and, insomnia - but only when I ate. Minor cuts and scratches were slow to heal. Functioning daily was extremely difficult at best. Allergy scratch test results were positive to 33 different foods. Traditional doctors, allergists, could not provide a cause, explanation or cure except to say that it was happening for no reason, or that the reactions could subside overtime on their own, maybe. One doctor insisted the reactions after eating were just a coincidence. So, I was prescribed the usual medications for relief - antihistamines, steroids, and topical creams, which provided little relief. 

In desperation I searched for answers and it seemed that I was suffering from the damaging side effects of antibiotics and colonoscopies prescribed and performed over the past 10 years. Ana described it as an immune deficiency/malabsorption disorder, related to a damaged digestive tract. When I discussed alternative/natural cures, suggested by doctors on the internet, my doctor retorted he never heard of it and that it was bogus medicine. The natural organic diet recommendations, starting with beef broth only, then gradually adding other foods, came with a 1-2 year cure timeframe with no guarantee and provided no relief for my immediate reactions.  I experienced relief from the allergies only if I stopped eating and there were days when I did, or, ate very little. My diet consisted more of antihistamines than food. I lost so much weight, family and friends gawked and wanted to know what had happened to me during Christmas holiday 2012 get-togethers. It would be a gross understatement to say on a scale of 1-10 the quality of my life was -0.

Thank God for Ana Mahoney and NAET. She is a Godsend and an answer to a desperate plea for help. I seriously believe I could not and would not have survived much longer had there been no cure available for this illness.  The natural and non-invasive reprogramming techniques Ana employed were an awesome healing and enlightening experience. After about 3 months of sessions, every 2 weeks, most of my food allergy reactions were eliminated. Improvement came with each session.  Today, 6 months later, I am nearly allergy free. The few food reactions I experience now are very mild. I can once again enjoy most all foods. A few more sessions, I'm sure, will eliminate the mild allergic reactions completely. Ana, there are no words to express my deep appreciation for you and NAET. I am forever grateful to you and NAET, and, I refer you to all family and friends and  acquaintances every chance I get.

My son David has suffered allergic reactions that caused him severe eczema, psoriasis and other inflammatory conditions. David's condition has improved a lot since he has been treated by Ana. Before the treatments, foods and other substances made him sick, but now he can eat all those foods without allergic reactions (nuts, peanuts, corn, wheat etc.). Before the treatments, I would have to pick up David from school very often due to his allergic reactions, but this year he has not missed any school days due to allergies. His skin has improved considerably and his skin is smooth. He has an occasional flare up and we can now identify the trigger and treat him to eliminate the allergy. I can testify that these treatments have worked really well for my son.

(Original Spanish version) - Mi hijo David ha sufrido de muchas crisis alérgicas que le han provocado eczema extrema, psoriasis, y otras inflamaciones. David a mejorado mucho desde que lo trata Ana. Ya no le hace daño lo que come, y antes todo lo que comía, y otras sustancias más, le hacían daño. Ya come los alimentos que antes le daban alergia sin reacciones, como las nueces, cacahuates, maíz, trigo etc. Antes de los tratamientos, me regresaban a David de la escuela a cada rato por reacciones alérgicas, pero este año no ha perdido días de escuela por estar en crisis alérgica. Su piel a mejorado considerablemente y su piel esta lisa. Rara vez se le inflama la piel y ya sabemos que lo ocasionó y que hay que tratarle.Yo puedo testificar que estos tratamientos le han funcionado muy bien a mi hijo.

I have been allergic to certain fruits (apples, peaches, pears, plums, nectarines) and deathly allergic to most nuts since I was 10 or 11 years old. Now, at age 42, I have been liberated from all of these food allergies thanks to NAET. I was very much a skeptic when I began working with Ana. That skepticism melted away on the first day that I took a bite of apple and.... nothing happened! Next came the nuts and now even the sneezing and itchy eyes that I always felt around cats is gone. If you have environmental or food allergies, you MUST try NAET. Be patient, it works!

Several years ago I started to see physicians because I was not feeling well. I suffered with fatigue, constipation, acid reflux, indigestion, inability to sleep because of the acid and stomach issues, rapidly declining interest in my friends and/or any social interactions, fertility issues, and an inability to keep up with basic exercise.

I started with thyroid drugs and then the suggested drug use for IBS, reflux, and depression. I was not comfortable with the idea of taking so many medications at the age of 38 so I began to look for other answers. With the aid of acupuncture, I began to realize that I had allergies to the food I was ingesting. When I initially took gluten out of my diet, I began to have a return of my previous energy with a lessening of my digestive issues for the first two years, however within two years I began to feel poorly again. Not only was gluten making me ill, but I was reacting to corn, dairy, and a host of other things. 

NAET has changed my life. Within 3 to 4 treatments, I was noticing progress. I was no longer sick every day of my life. Within two months I was rarely sick. And now I can say I feel great every day .

I can eat anything, keep up a healthy lifestyle with lots of energy, interact confidently with all social situations, and have a better relationship with my husband and loved ones. Additionally, I have resolved my life-long issues with pollen, dust, acne, and a sensitivity to most hair & skin-care products. AMAZING!

Going to NAET Virginia and working with Ana Mahoney has been a truly life-changing experience. I can eat foods I never thought I would be able to eat, do physical activities I never thought I would be able to, and take positive steps forward in my life. My health has improved dramatically in the time that I have been going to NAET Virginia, and in ways Western medicine told me it could never improve. I'm healthier, happier, and couldn't be more grateful. I would recommend NAET Virginia to anyone.

Ana's services are a one stop shop for mind, body and spirit. I initially went to get allergy testing, but she has since treated many other psychological issues, as well as expand mental limitations I might have with some of the foods I ate. The information she has taught me has worked wonders on my thinking processes, and I would recommend her ongoing services to anyone."

My two girls and I have been working with Ana for over six months.  Her NAET treatments + the GAPS diet combined have been a wonderful program for restoring health to our family.  Much of the improvement is incremental, but one particular treatment stands out.  My youngest daughter awoke one morning when she was almost two years old.  She had a swollen forehead and had started falling over for seemingly no reason at all.  We took her to the pediatrician's office.  Then MCV.  Then Johns Hopkins.  We consulted specialist after specialist, fourteen in total before it was all said and done.  

The doctors gave her the diagnosis of ataxia.  Fast forward almost three YEARS...  Her ataxia / balance disorder was still an issue and it was very frustrating to her.  She lost her balance randomly and felt dizzy much of the time, although afternoons were the worst for her.  Ana told me she thought it could be related to a bacteria/virus transferred from one of our dogs and treated my daughter first with magnets and then with NAET.  The next day my daughter happily told me she wasn't dizzy.  She has never had a dizzy day since that time and has been a much happier kid as well.  This is just one of our many magical NAET moments.  We are very thankful for NAET and thankful that Ana is practicing here in RVA!

NAET has proven to be a missing link for me in my mind/body/spirit healing. But most importantly, it is Ana Mahoney with her amazing intuitive ability that makes it all so magical. Thank you Ana for showing me my body's perspective on why I have been the way I've been!

As a woman in peri-menopause I was having several physical symptoms including insomnia, low-energy, back pain, difficulty focusing and painful menstrual cramping.  In addition, there were several emotional issues that were unresolved. 

My first treatment was a bio-magnetic scan.  It indicated that the thyroid and parathyroid glands were out of balance. I have had hypothyroidism since my early thirties but blood-work with my Primary Care Physician was indicating that it wasn’t being treated with the appropriate dosage of medication.  The treatment was easy.   We taped magnets on the points and waited 15 minutes.  Within a few days, I had a higher energy level.  Incidentally, 6 weeks after this treatment, my Primary Care Physician retested my blood work for thyroid and my medicine was reduced.  My feeling is the magnetic treatment provided me with a “jump start” to my thyroid producing more thyroxine.  

Through the NAET treatments with muscle testing we resolved my insomnia, boosted my fatigue-both physical and emotional.  It never had occurred to me that I could be allergic to my family.  We had always described it as being TOO much alike.  After the treatment, the arguing and power struggles were greatly reduced.  For the first time in years, we had a household with a teenager and harmony.  Because of that my family and l are convinced of the power of this work.

My back pain has been a reoccurring issue since my early twenties when I injured it in college.  I have been working with a wonderful physical therapist for over a year and was dedicated to the exercises and stretches.  Still after all this time, my back would ache.  Through muscle testing, Ana determined that the inflammation and pain was worse because of grains and gluten.  After treating for those substances, pain levels dropped by 80%.  As well, we found two emotional issues that I held deeply in those muscles.  By acknowledging these issues, my muscles twitched and released throughout my NAET session.    I was unaware of emotional memories that were stored there.   NAET has given me the final key to regaining a healthy back and to move throughout the day mostly pain-free without medication.

It is an understatement in my mind to describe NAET as a treatment for allergies.  For me, it has proven to be a modality for health that addresses the physical, the emotional, mental and physiological aspects of holistic health and reminds us that our bodies do recall how to be whole.
