NAET – Miracle cure or hoax? Part I

If you have food or environmental allergies, intolerances, eczema, or a variety of other health issues, you may have heard of NAET treatment.   What is NAET Treatment?

Seeing eczema for the first time….Update!!

After writing about Althea’s family experience a few months ago, we were excited to take a moment to catch up with her again for updates!

We had all of our paperwork handled and I was ready to drop her off at school for the first time. Well, I thought I was going to drop her off. It turned out there were a few missing items needed to allow her attend, as her paperwork read she was allergic to nuts. Even though this is a peanut free facility, I would not able to drop her Read More
