Nell Foster, Founder/Director

Absolute Allergy Relief

"Prior to moving to Kauai, I served as the Director of Clinical Operations and Adjunct Faculty member at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ. My over 50 years of medical experience includes working with traditional Western medicine as well as alternative healthcare. My career started in the laboratory of a small hospital in Ohio which allowed me 16 years of exposure to every aspect of Western Medicine.  After our son was born, I assisted a group of OB/GYN physicians and clinicians to set up their own laboratory and expand their infertility practice. I loved assisting patients, nurses and physicians in the field of Infertility, both clinically and developing continuing education for nurses and educational materials for Fertility patients.  I am tremendously grateful for my "past life" career as an IVF/Donor Program Coordinator and Education Specialist. ​

"We fell in love with Kauai immediately during our first visit Thanksgiving of 2007. We never experienced anything anywhere so​ ​wondrous. I met Cass when he was teaching at The Ohio State University and despite a few decades in academia he wasn't close to retiring. I never imagined giving up my career and relationship to the Naturopathic College yet six months after our first visit, Kauai became home. ​My time is typically spent doing volunteer work, reading, playing euchre and cribbage, sitting in awe of our spectacular sunsets over a glass of wine, watching whales and dolphins at play and enjoying Kauai’s many sights and sensational beaches with Cass and when possible with our most amazing son, Ian. I am active in Kauai’s local theatre community as an Actor, Director and Set/Costume Designer. 

"You are reading this because you, or someone you are close to, suffer from sensitivities or symptoms of allergies.  These symptoms vary greatly from person to person but typically result in a chronic condition.  For over ten years nearly all of my clients say the same thing when sessions are complete: "I am living a life I never imagined possible. I am telling everyone I know what you did for me and how you did it but no one will believe me." Whether you come from a referral by a trusted friend or from an open mindedness that allows you to explore something so unconventional, I look forward to the sparkle in your eyes once you experience what truly must be experienced to be believed.

"I am so very fortunate to have such loving and generous friends and family, a unique career where ease and simplicity brings comfort to so many and a life so fulfilling and meaningful."

People will never forget how you made them feel

You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.”
