Wow, healing works! I was skeptical about trying “hypnotherapy” because I didn’t think it would work for me. It was not what I thought it would be. Its very effective. I had anxiety attacks that have now gone away! No more stress! I wholeheartedly recommend Dorothy Neddermeyer to anyone! She is very caring and honest. Erika ###

Dr. Dorothy, I just wanted to thank you for the work we did this morning. It was a phenomenal experience that I did not expect to have.

One Sunday at dawn…
It is 5 am in the morning. I am leaning on the bathroom sink to let nausea subside. Minutes earlier my husband approached me in a loving, tender way to create a moment of closeness and love. Like many other encounters in the dark; I just couldn’t bear the feeling of it, the sensation, the lighting, something. That particular day I had enough. Something clicked. It was time. I just wanted to throw up. I got up fast as a rocket and after settling my nausea I walked into the living room. I started to cry with despair. I, then, came to the realization that I had to face my sexual abuse. I could no longer blame my husband, the kids, work schedule and many other excuses for my lack of interest, or more accurately, avoidance of intimacy. I grabbed my computer and started to search; looking for answers, help, anything. I came across one of the wonderful articles written by Dr. Neddermeyer and it was as if it was written for me. It resonated at a physical, emotional and spiritual level. I, then, contacted her.
Working with Dr. Neddermeyer is one of the gifts the universe has given me. She has a tender heart and a passion for healing the world one soul at a time. Deep inside I knew I could face it all and heal. I knew it was time. I was ready, but I just didn’t know where to start. To be honest, in many steps of my healing I felt pain so strong that I thought it was easier to die. I felt pain beyond words ripping me in pieces. Dr. Dorothy (like I like to call her) guided me firmly, but with the softness and patience, I also needed. One of the things I most loved about her is the freedom she gave me to heal at my own pace. She never pushed or harassed me for a next session. She didn’t have an agenda. I called her and made my own appointments when I felt I was ready to face the next step. In more than one occasion our sessions got prolonged due to the amount of information I was processing. I was never rushed to finish, and even though I was mindful and respectful of the time, she wasn’t the typical couch doctor constantly looking at the clock to quickly dismiss me. When in session, from beginning to end she made me feel HEARD, she gave me the attention and attentiveness I SO NEEDED.
Needless to say, my work with Dr. Dorothy was honest and pure. She allowed me and assisted me to grow in ways I never imagined. She helped me realize the huge gaps in my life where I didn’t have good parenting. Therefore, such realization helped me create, re-learn and establish new and healthy patterns that now are crucial and beneficial in order to be a good mother. Lastly, I can reassure you that working with Dr. Dorothy will heal you and more so, you will be able to achieve what I was determined to do and that is: “END THE CYCLE OF ABUSE.” Love You, Dr Dorothy – RR ###
WOW!!!! what a day!… Let me just start by saying how grateful I am to have you on our path. I NEVER doubt you, but I did doubt A’s capacity to let go and be able to open up enough to put himself in the vulnerable/raw place he needed it to be in order to experience the session. My…OH..My! When he entered the room I was and I saw his face I knew he went for a ride. I feel so happy for him to have had this opportunity. I remembered the baby said this experience was going to be a “gift” to A (whatever that meant) but indeed it was such a gift. When he told me all about his experience I almost couldn’t believe it. You mean so much in my life but this just took it to another level. You have assisted me to grow and held my hand. I have felt so loved. You have been blunt when I have needed it and nurturing too. I felt you holding my hand as a tiny little girl throughout this process and I also felt you let me walk on my own as a young adult. Now I feel your caring guidance as only a mother can do for her kids. This whole experience shared by you and my spiritual partner and LOVE was and is so healing. How beautiful! I am so grateful! I am so happy for A. Thank you~ Name Withheld by request. ###
Hips – Pain Free. One session is all it took for my hips to be in pain-free working condition. I was too young (34) to have symptoms of arthritis, severe pain in my hip sockets. I was active, fit, and medical doctor-approved healthy and there was no cause for joint pain that made it difficult for me to stand up after sitting. Dr. Dorothy brought me in touch with my subconscious and my subconscious mind had a chat with my hips. Hips signify movement and while my right hip was stuck in not wanting to move forward, my left hip was stuck in going down the same old paths (yet hoping for different results). It was all based on fear, fear to progress in new directions and pain helped me to stay exactly where I was personally and professionally. This conversation helped me see clearly what I needed to do. With Dr. Dorothy’s guidance, I released all stuck energy in my hips. Immediately when the session ended all things changed. I got up from my seat to leave the room and it took a second for me to realize that I had experienced NO pain in my hips after rising, even after sitting for a good length of time. Significantly, I told Dr. Dorothy, “I forgot that I was supposed to be in pain.” With “forgetting” and without “expecting pain” and letting go of ‘old habits,’ I just got up normally, as if I had never had the problem with my hips before. Dr. Dorothy’s patient introduction of me to my hips and the actual, root reason of my pain as spoken by me at a subconscious level gave me another new lease on life, pain-free in my hips. It has been two months and I am still Pain-Free. Name withheld by request ###

Dr Dorothy saved my life – “Dr. Dorothy saved my life. We go to a medical doctor because of a symptom and often receive what we have asked for… a way to get rid of the symptom. This type of ‘healing’ is superficial. The cause of the symptom is not gone, and it is only a matter of time before the symptoms reappear. A medical doctor can measure results on the basis of whether the symptom has temporarily disappeared or not. A metaphysical healer finds the root of the problem…the energy of the problem within your system. In order to ‘heal’ this deep, the person MUST be actively involved in the healing process. Metaphysical healing facilitators bring focus on the root cause of the problem – although identification of the problem is not all that is needed to find healing, it helps and is the first step! It is then together that the person and the holistic facilitator can investigate the root problem (through whatever means the person is most comfortable with… could be regression, could be soul work, could be an intensive healing retreat etc.). This step can be done alone though, without a facilitator if you have some knowledge of the steps required of you…this is the part where a holistic facilitator (if you choose to use one) can only guide you through the process. You are really the one doing the healing. You may argue at this point that you don’t really NEED the holistic facilitator then – and in part, you would be right! The holistic facilitator is there to help YOU to see the root problem and heal it, if you are not able to see or heal it for yourself….” Linda ###
I have to say Thank YOU :)..I’ve learned huge (life changing) things from my work with you… In a nutshell:
- From the 1st session- I realized I need to work on my self-love, and I knew that already, but that blockage removal was a big milestone. If I am happy on my own, I can establish my boundaries, and love everyone else even more, because that love comes from a healthy place :)..this is a continuous work in progress 🙂
- From Session 2- I just confirmed my unhealthy pattern, and I am conscious of it, and surer of myself to just follow my gut feelings (or be more in touch with my feelings). Also, by experiencing that lonely life with a little love I realized how this life is awesome! :)…and that dying is actually a great experience (NOTE: if one goes to a good place:)).
- From Session 3- I found my Twin Flame!!! You are right! I need to trust myself, and just have faith in me, and in life in general, everything will be all right =). Also, he and I are really fun & loving ppl, so I just plan to chill and enjoy that with him. He does not have to know he is my Twin Flame and that I have met him in 5 lifetimes ;). (He would definitely freak out LOL :))… I will update you because although short, you have already played an important role in my life :). Take care, (Name Withheld by Request) ###
“Oh Dorothy! “It” is growing so strong so fast. I am a love struck teenager. I have never felt like this before! “K” feels the same way. You saved my life, Dorothy. Through both of us working very hard, I am finally alive. After 63 years I am finally alive! It has taken quite a while. I can’t even call to mind now when I first saw you. In retrospect, I can see that one of the best things that ever happened to me was that deep depression. It was a chance to start over. It has taken a long while for the trauma to surface. Everything in its proper time. I know there will always be issues as long as I am alive. But now they will be positive issues. Now I can truly be alive and venture into life. You have my deep love and respect. I will always love you deeply for you have walked along side of me through the most difficult and dangerous trek of my life. If I was there I would hug you ’till you screamed for me to stop. Then I might stop if I felt like it. ” One of your best success stories, Jim ###
RE: Hypnosis is the label put on a natural human process. My hypnosis education enforced the philosophy that hypnosis has no ‘techniques.’…love your answer, finally somebody who does serious work.
“Right On! For the greater part, Dorothy, what you write about [in the article, About Flu Vaccine] is like taking the words out of my mouth. We are on the same page.” J.Z.M. ###
“…having sessions with you always help me, you give me so much strength, and help me stay positive, unfortunately, I have fallen again into the same black hole, and I really need sessions with you, I have visited another person, but they always rely on medicine, and that is not what I need. I have proven to myself in the past, that all my health issues are in my mind.” P.Y. ###
“Thank you for the article [Achieving Spiritual Health] Dr. Dorothy. I know we have gone over this numerous times before. But, as always, the need to be reminded is crucial. You are appreciated. I must say that my life is definitely not stagnant. Another change has occurred. Much positive coming from a negative situation.” Love ya much! Jim ###

“Thank you. I truly enjoyed the article this month. [Are YOU In a Hurry to Fix Your Life? By Joan Sotkin] It fits exactly where I am in life. The biggest task for me right now is to stay tuned to my inner voice. It is the voice of truth that is very soft and quiet. I tend to ignore it many times for “I” know best. Thank you.” Jim D ###

“I suffered severe emotional, mental, physical and sexual abuse, including torture, from infancy to my young adult years. I have been in therapy for most of my life, c. 25 years, but in the last 6 I have made enormous progress. After many diagnoses, I was finally accurately diagnosed as having dissociative identity disorder and began work on retrieving many, many horrific memories. After many hospitalizations, and hours and hours of therapy, which continues, I am leading a fairly “normal” life, e.g, I am mothering 2 beautiful, well-adjusted children, I am in a serious relationship with a man, with whom I am “making love” and having “sex”, I have several very close friends, I am running a household, one that all the kids want to come to, etc. So,…Thank you for giving me my life” (Name Withheld by Request) ###
“I just wanted to write and tell you how refreshing it was to read your website – there is so much false memory data, written most likely by perpetrators or, if not, ignorant professionals and scared lay people who are afraid to believe such atrocities occur. I was relieved to read your information, presented in the form of statistics, hard to argue with.” Cammy ###
“I really appreciate your information about child abuse/incest in this newsletter. I am a survivor and have worked through years of therapy. But glad to see someone like you informing people about the sad facts of this problem. ” Linda Schiller-Hanna ###
