Dramatic Improvement in Energy, Digestion and Pain Levels

After completing the Basic 15 NAET treatments with Emily Richmond (Yuen) I now definitely feel improvement in my health. The changes came slowly; sometimes I wondered if anything was happening at all. Emily had cautioned me that the progress would be slow at first but to watch for changes. I think it was about the 7th or 8th treatment that I really could say I was beginning to see noticeable improvement. Now, at the end of the Basic 15, I feel a definite overall improvement. My husband and daughter very pleased with my results so far as well and support me continuing with NAET treatments with Emily.

I have felt a huge improvement in my energy level. It is such a dramatic change that my whole family recognizes the improvement. I no longer need to take naps. I no longer need or want to cry at the end of the day from exhaustion. I have the energy to start AND complete projects. I even have the energy to complete the clean-up at the end of laborious projects! I cannot remember when I didn’t leave some clean-up for a later time. I even have energy to spend with my family at the end of the day.

My health concerns left me feeling hopeless and out of options before NAET. I had exhausted the regular medical avenues seeking for improvements. I have a fabulous doctor and even she was frustrated with the lack of improvement. I had completed 4 years of allergy injections without much improvement to my quality of life. I had a number of food allergies which made dining out or with friends nearly impossible. Even my mother preferred NOT to try to provide me a meal! After hearing Emily share how NAET changed her life I felt inspired to try it with her. I am so happy I did.

My swelling and joint pain continues to decrease. My clothes are fitting better.

The pain in my liver from a chronic infection is gone after 28 years.

I typically suffer from chronic sinus infections. I didn’t get a single one this summer even through an allergy season that included thick smoke from nearby forest fires, which meant no need for antibiotics! Because NAET has helped my body become naturally better balanced it is able to rebalance itself and naturally fight infections.

My digestion is so much better. I am finally regular and consistent. I now have significantly less pain, gas, and bloating. I attribute much of my new found energy and well being to the improvement in my digestion.

In addition to NAET, it has been delightful to learn EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) from Emily as well. I have learned this simple, easy to use method to manage my emotional state and physical pain. EFT didn’t take years of practice and expensive therapy to learn and apply. I am repeatedly amazed by how simple it is to release big emotional issues that I have held as physical pain in my body.

Infant’s Eczema Gone

In June of 2012 a 5-month old exclusively breast feed infant came to see Emily Richmond (Yuen) for eczema. The mother had given up gluten, dairy and caffeine and didn’t use soap to wash him or his clothes.  Even with these changes, the mother rated the severity of the eczema on a scale from 1 to 10 as a 7-8.  The baby also suffered from constipation.

NAET – allergy desensitization treatments where received 1 to 2 times a week for 6 months. The eczema reduced to a 1 on the scale of 1 to 10. Much to the mother’s delight, she has been able to eat gluten, dairy and caffeine while continuing to breast feed.  The baby is able to tolerate laundry detergent and soap now.  He continued breast feeding and began eating solids foods without any problems.  He has more regular bowel movements also.

After a few more treatments the eczema cleared up the rest of the way. He is now a healthy toddler.

ADHD, Cold Sores, Depression and Addiction

NAET with Emily Richmond (Yuen) helped my inattentive ADHD so much that I am able to hold down and desk job and work on my Masters in Business.

As a child I had a reaction to a vaccine. I had seizures and a fever. I was constantly sick as a child and suffered with ADHD.

As an adult I was allergic to vitamin C, was constantly getting cold sores, had seasonal allergies, and struggled with alcohol. I had terrible memory issues, low ferritin levels, nose bleeds and depression.

I had to run my own company in order to accommodate my constant need to get up and move and shift from one subject to another – I could not have a desk job.

After 15 to 20 NAET treatments I was able to focus so much better that my business was thriving. I later sold my company for a profit! I now work for a successful company and sit at a desk 40 – 50hours a week. I have received several promotions. I love my job and I couldn’t have done it without NAET. I even found when returned to the Master’s program I started years ago, that it was so much easy this time around.

I was also able to give up drinking and smoking three-years ago as I no longer needed to calm myself down. Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) really helped with that as well.

I can take Vitamin C, I rarely gets cold sores, my seasonal allergies are under control, I no longer get nose bleeds, my memory is better and my depression is so much better. I am better able to handle anxiety and stress and I have a stronger immune system.

It Has Become Such a Pleasure to be Around My Boy

I started N.A.E.T. for my third grade son at the end of the school year with Emily Richmond (Yuen). Even though he had not formally been diagnosed with ADHD, he showed all the signs of it. A restrictive diet (no gluten) had shown some results, but not enough. My son is highly intelligent but could not focus on any given task in class. He was hyperactive, could never be still or quiet, was greatly distractible, and disturbed his class a lot. I knew that he could learn his lessons with ease, but his grades were only just average. School, instead of being stimulating and fun, had become torture for my child.

After the first 10 treatments of N.A.E.T., we were able to start “brain treatments,” which are said to be a great help for people showing these kinds of disorders.

The changes that I witnessed in my son after he cleared each of these treatments were beyond my wildest dreams. When it first happened, he all of a sudden knew what to do. For the first time in his life, he knew the sequence of things to do, for example for walking the dog. He got the dog ready with leash and collar, had a baggy ready, and put his shoes on, without needing to be reminded of any of these things. He had never been able to get ready before on his own. Normally, I would have to give him several prompts for each of the steps involved. Now, he is even able to be helpful to me and others, and can see what needed to be done to accomplish that. Before we could begin the brain treatments, his mind was so overwhelmed that he was never able to see how he could be helpful to others. He may have had the idea, but could not follow through with it. Now, my boy is really enjoying knowing what to do and how to do it. For the first time, I found out what it is like to have a 9 year old child, instead of a 3 year old.

N.A.E.T. is not a quick or easy fix but it is absolutely worth the effort. I am very pleased with the changes in my son and so happy for him. The thought of him at school used to make me cry, to think of how difficult it must be for him to sit still when he couldn’t, to attempt to be on task all day when he couldn’t even remember on his own of putting on his shoes before leaving the house. Today, he is proud of his work and is happy to go to school. Classes are now interesting and exciting, and are no longer a burden for him.

After the summer vacation, during which we made great progress with his N.A.E.T. treatment, he has entered fourth grade and has the same teacher as the year before. She is extremely pleased with his improvements and is amazed with his new focus and ability to get the job done. His grades, which were average before, have improved to almost straight A’s. We know, of course, that he is still a little quirky and wiggly but that is what makes him unique. Even the school counselor, who doesn’t see him a lot, said it is great to see how much my son has changed, how he is now confident enough to talk to other people outside of his class, something that he didn’t do at all before.

N.A.E.T. is not an easy solution like swallowing a pill. Many treatments are required in order to obtain lasting results. Some treatments even need to be repeated. It takes many weeks, even months, to achieve such good results. One must actively participate in the treatment, for after each session, one must avoid to touch or ingest certain foods and products during one full day.

However, I like N.A.E.T. because it is non-invasive, my child does not need to ingest harmful chemicals with possible side effects, and—best of all—it provides solutions that will last.

My son has still more treatments to do and I can’t wait to see more positive changes! It has become such a pleasure to be around my boy. I lose my patience with him less, and he feels more confident, and is happy and proud to know what he is supposed to be doing. I receive many compliments about him from people around us. My son’s life has been effectively turned around and is now most enjoyable.

NAET Benefits Man with Severe Autism

Before NAET

"John," a 35-year-old with severe autism, came in for NAET treatments from Emily Richmond (Yuen) at Boise Natural Health. John lives in a home with 24-hour supervision and is rated with the most severe form of autism. John suffered with panic attacks, self-hitting, head banging, very limited use of single words, extreme constipation, irregular sleep patterns, vocal tics, and 48- hour mood swing cycles. John wears protective gear to stop him from causing damage to himself: padded gloves, shin guards, helmet and a face guard. John feels most secure with the pressure from these items on his body and likes having his hands held close to each other with fabric. John was in the process of coming off two medications and was taking a third. Medications were used to help reduce some of the above mentioned symptoms. John is often drawn inward and usually showed little interest or curiosity about others or his environment.

  • John’s father couldn’t be happier with his son’s progress. "Thank you, Emily, for being a wonderful, caring, and sensitive NAET practitioner." – John’s Dad

Other therapies utilized in conjunction with NAET and when each started:

"The combined effort of all therapies including a supportive environment is much more powerful than any one in isolation." – John’s Dad

  • Amy Yasko’s supplementation protocol from Autism: Pathways to Recovery with Dr. Sara Rodger’s guidance. Supplementation was on board 6 months before NAET started.
  • 4 day rotation diet. With avoidance of gluten and casein and certain foods that were high on his IgG (delayed reaction) blood test. He has been on this diet for 1.5 years.

  • Mand training (a form of ABA) was used by staff to help John use words to ask for protective equipment rather than hitting himself to ask.
  • Inclusion in family and community by going on walks and saying "hi" to neighbors.
  • An amazing Dad who didn’t give up on his son!

For more studies on the use of NAET with people with autism read the Autism Study. There was a 68% reduction in the autistic behaviors of participants. 23 out of 26 patients were able to return to mainstream classrooms after 100 NAET treatments.

Eczema Cleared Up

After only 9 NAET treatments we have great news regarding our little one’s eczema! He had an orange three days in a row and no extra or major breakout so that’s awesome! His skin is clear right now except for some minor scabs on the backs of his knees and I think a small one on his arm right now, he’s come a long way so far! He still has minor breakouts here and there but he’s been eating almost everything. All of the spots on his joints have gone away too. It’s been nice to be able to make him meals or feed him what we eat especially since he’s coming up on three and doesn’t understand what allergies are Thank you NAET and Dr. Pierce. -J.J.

Seasonal Allergy Testimonial

My seasonal allergies which I have in all four-seasons have greatly improved with NAET treatments with Emily Richmond (Yuen). I am just finishing up with the basic 15 treatments (which are large nutrient groups from food and plants) and I am already having great relief from hay fever. I am taking far less anti-histamines and my overall health and tolerance to my allergens has dramatically improved. I am pleasantly surprised and I am looking forward to treating the local trees, weeds, sage and grasses this winter!

–          G.G.

After completing the basic 15 I came in for treatments for dust, trees, pollen, and animal dander. I am no longer snoring at night, I am sleeping much better, and I no longer have to take daily anti-histamines. My brain fog has gone away and I love having more energy. Thank you Emily Richmond (Yuen) and NAET.

– M.H.

After completing the basic 15 I could mow the lawn without a mask, without taking anti-histamines, and without needing to shower to prevent hives. I no longer feel terrible for the entire next day after mowing the lawn. I continued on with NAET and treated for local trees and pollens. For the first time ever, I rode my bike on the green belt with the cotton woods blooming and I could breath, my eyes weren’t tearing up and I wasn’t blowing my nose constantly.  I actually stood underneath a blooming cottonwood. It was beautiful and was like being on a brand new planet. I am no longer afraid to go outside in  Spring. I now make sharing NAET with others my life’s ambition and career here at Boise Natural Health as my environmental allergies are just on of the many ways NAET changed my life.
