Amazing Story

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for creating your site about naet.  I too am passionate about naet

and have been spreading the word as best as I can!

I have been working with Lisa Madigan, an NAET practictioner in Phoenix

AZ,  for a few months now and I am totally amazed at the dramatic results

I have experienced. The most obvious is that I have much more energy and

strength and a lot less melancholy bordering on depression.

I originally contacted her ( to address

seasonal allergy problems but to my delight we are also successfully

addressing many other issues that I always thought were due to my

Multiple Sclerosis and therefore unavoidable. For years I treated the

symptoms of those problems without being able to resolve them. Problems

such as: overwhelming fatigue, hypoglycemia, yeast infections, frequent

bladder and kidney infections, incontinence, lack of coordination and

balance, headaches, depression and many, many, many other things that I

happily can no longer even remember.

It’s amazing because I have not felt this good since before my MS

diagnosis just over 20 years ago. I recently told Lisa that I can

actually almost remember what it felt like to be “normal” so it is no

surprise that I passionately want to tell everyone I know, and even those

I don’t know, about naet!

Lisa has a special passion for helping children and really wants to reach

out to the autistic and ADHD community and I am doing everything I

possibly can to help spread the word.  That’s true even more so now that

with Lisa’s help I am doing treatments at home with my 11 year daughter

“R”. Yes! I am doing the treatments at home which seem to be just as

effective as my in office treatments but they are less expensive and I

dont have to drag my daughter to her office during the busy school year!

R was born full-term (38 weeks of gestation) and was only 2lbs 8oz and 13

inches long. Her tiny head fit in the palm of my hand! Amazingly, she had

heart surgery at 5 days old and stayed in Neo-natal intensive care for 8

weeks. At one point she was being given 16 meds intravenously at once!

She was so weak that she could not drink from a bottle or eat baby food

when the time came for her to try. We fed her high calorie formula thru a

Nasal Gastric tube that went up her nose and down into her stomach. We

feed her overnight with a pump that slowly fed her the formula over a 10

hour period and I fed her manually thru the tube every 2 hours during the

day. She kept yanking the tube out so I would have to put it back in

sometimes as often as 6 or 8 times a day maybe more. At 8 months old a

surgeon put a feeding tube in her stomach so we could feed her formula

that way. It looked like the plastic air valve on a cheap blow-up beach

ball!  Unfortunately over the next 5 years she puked up everything we fed

her. She was 2-1/2 years old before she reached 20 lbs and is still very

tiny. But finally,  she was almost”big” enough to have full-blown open-

heart surgery to correct the major heart anomolies she was still living


In the meantime we had her in as many as 6 therapy sessions a week to try

to get her to eat and to help her overcome all of the many other

developmental problems she experienced. We tried OT, PT, ST, Sensory,

Play therapy, music therapy and everything else we could…. All of this

was exhausting for her and me too!  I wish I had known about naet back


With lots of intervention and hard work for all of us she eventually did

learn to eat . Her first real bite of food was a Burger King burger (just

the meat) and her first “real” meal was Mac & Cheese for Thanksgiving

dinner weeks after turning 4!!  It took many more years before the G-tube

was surgically removed because she needed to continue to receive the bulk

of her nutrition and calories that way.

Fast forward… 11-1/2 years old, only  4 feet 6-1/2 inches tall and a

whooping 63 pounds! And that is with growth hormone therapy since she was

5! The doctor surmises she might make it to 4’9″ if he can successfully

delay puberty (the onset of her period) which is clearly imminent because

of her obvious bodily development. She now receives monthly injections of

a med to accomplish this as well as daily injections of the growth

hormone and an oral thyroid med to kick start the growth hormone.

The monthly injection causes MAJOR mood swings and hormonal episodes

greater than any PMS I’ve ever had and she started complaining about

headaches and stomach pain almost like reflux.  This is in addition to

her ADHD like behavior and craving for sugar and carbs.  Her regular

medical docs just keep prescribing more meds and I struggle with knowing

whether these meds are the right decision or not.  I already feel guilty

about whether all these hormones will cause problems for her in the


Well after working with Lisa and talking about my daughter I found out I

can save some money by doing some at-home treatments with her!  After

only a few treatments for some of  the basics such as: egg, Vit C, Vit B

and sugar I noticed dramatic changes. Her attention span has improved

immensely, she is much much much less distracted (did I say much?) and

she stopped complaining about the headaches almost immediately.  She

actually now reads for 20-30 minutes each night on her own and is much

more able to put herself to sleep each night instead of me having to sit

with her and rub her back till she settles down. It’s so bonus for me!!!

Of course her teachers think it’s because she miracuously matured,

surprisingly during the last few weeks of this school year and that she

somehow amazingly avoided being struck by spring fever too!

I was so impressed that, again with my naet practictioner’s help and

supervision, I began doing the basic at home treatments for my 14 year

old daughter “D” too even tho she doesnt have medical problems or

complaints about things.  Interestingly enough, I have noticed D  become

more grounded, less confrontatrional and easier to get along with.  Keep

in mind, she’s 14 so we still have some pretty big meltdowns!!  I dont

think there’s a single quick-fix reatment (naet or otherwise) for

teenagehood but so far this has been a pretty close second!

One final note on me…  Last week I was doing volunteer work up at my

church and uncharacteristically became overwhlmingly fatigued just like I

used to get every day before naet. I figured it was due to the sudden 100

degree temps we were experiencing here in Phx so I didnt think much about

it but went home early to take a nap. I slept on and off from 1:30 that

Monday afternoon until Friday morning. When I went to my naet appt, Lisa

found that I was sensitive to 3 allergens that I cant even pronounce

(edta, xylene and butyly-hydro-tolune). Within a few hours of treating me

for them I felt a lot better. In retrospect, I recall there was a

horrible smell in the area near my church on Monday (we thought it was a

gas leak but it wasnt). There’s a lot of construction nearby and who

knows. Whatever it was, it irritated me badly and I was thinking “oh no

none of this naet stuff really worked after all”.  Now, all I can only

say is that Lisa identified these specific allergens and she treated me

for them and I feel better!

Anyway, I’ll end here and look forward to reading other testimonials as

you post them.

I wish you continued  health and happiness!
