I knew it needed some help due to multiple traumas, but after 18 mths with a Psycologist I felt like I was up against a brick wall. It just so happened that my meeting in Brisbane had been cancelled at the last minute and I had a free day. I pulled into the car park at Beerwah intent on getting something for lunch, I walked across the crossing and towards Woolies. Out the front of The Healthy Guru was a sign....Emotional well being, Trauma, Peace....kinesiology.
What is this? I asked myself. So I went in and asked.
After my first session I felt more relaxed since my initial trauma. Within a couple of sessions my panic attacks had eased and I found myself smiling again. I did wonder if this was all a bit “out there” but I soon realised I felt better and was able to deal with life. My sessions were “easy”, every time I would come out feeling lighter. During the week that followed I continued to discover more about myself without trying.
18 months later I have conquered many fears, been able to grieve the death of my mum, survived the 9 month battle with breast cancer.
The ladies at The Healthy Guru greet me with love and compassion. Not only do they look after my emotional health but care for my physical health. Advice backed by years of knowledge and practical experienced have assisted me to live a happy and healthy life.
I spent 73 years with depression, bipolar and they said I was schizophrenic and was on antipsychotic drugs. Since coming to Beerwah I have changed my diet. I live on fruit and vegetables. I first met Sara when asking about bitter melon for diabetes. I had stopped taking most medications and hadn't taken drugs for mental health for 8 months. I mentioned I had like a pressure over my eyes and Sara recommended Brahmi 6000 Complex. After 5 days it lifted and I have never looked back. I now live a happy, active life. I have taken up yoga and I'm out or working everyday which my family still don't believe. Sara has made a world of difference to my life and thank her from the bottom of my heart. I go and see Sara now and not the doctor and I listen to her advice. Family and friends have also been and had great results. I thank Sara very much for helping me to see life. Thank You.
The migraines started when I was twelve. At the time I was told it was just puberty and that I would grow out of it. The pain in my head was unbearable and would make me feel so nauseous that eventually I would vomit. The minute I finished vomiting the pain would disappear completely. This pattern continued until my mid twenties, regularly. The migraines then changed to several hours of vomiting before easing. I could find nothing that caused them. It was during this time that a Doctor prescribed a pethidine shot. I found that this was the best way to deal with the headaches as they were still occurring regularly. During each of my pregnancies the migraines intensified, and I just had to suffer through them as I did not want to have the pethidine.
As the children grew, I continued to suffer the migraines, but by now I suffered diarrhea as well whilst experiencing them. I returned to getting a shot of pethidine whenever I had one, as this was the only thing that relieved them. By this time, I found that glare or sitting with my head at an angle for too long would bring one on. I did still get them from "out of the blue" though.
In my late forties, the migraines began changing again. I was now experiencing an "aura" at the onset of a migraine. My peripheral vision would begin to close in, I would become clammy and pale. Then the pain, vomiting and diarrhea would begin. Also by this time, pethidine was no longer available and I was given injections of Tramadol instead. This was nowhere near as effective as the pethidine.
I began having regular massage and chiropractic treatments which did help marginally. I still received tramadol shots from the doctor whenever needed. In my early fifties, I came across something called AtlasPROfilax. It was a gentle manipulation of my neck and hips to get the base of my skull sitting in alignment on the top of my spine. This treatment gave me relief from migraines for twelve months. I returned to the practitioner when the migraines returned, but he said that there was nothing more that he could do for me.
By this time, I was now getting two types of migraine. One I called "sudden onset". These ones came out of nowhere, for no rhyme or reason. The second type originated from my neck. My father suffered terribly from migraines originating from his neck, so I think they are hereditary.
I had to have a hysterectomy when I was 53. Many women told me that this would put an end to the migraines as it had done for them. Unfortunately, it made no difference at all. I saw an article about having Daith piercing done to relieve headaches/migraines. So, in an attempt to rid myself of these debilitating attacks, I got both of my Daiths (the cartilage in the middle of my ear) pierced. These piercings have stopped my "sudden onset" headaches.Although I had been relieved of one type of migraine, there was not a day that went by that I did not have a headache in some shape or form. It was only the severity that changed. I was now also heavily reliant on the use of Immigran and Relpax in order to be able to function and go to work.
At 57 years old and suffering yet another near migraine, I walked past my local health food shop and saw a sign advertising Body Stress Release. In despair, I walked into the shop and booked an appointment with Bronny that afternoon. After the first treatment, I slept the best that I had in a long time. After the second treatment a few days later, I was feeling much better and no real headaches during the next week.. After the third treatment, I did not have a headache for over a month.
As Bronny was away, I was unable to have another treatment for nearly six weeks and the headaches started to return. As I write this, I have just had my second treatment since Bronny's return. I am feeling very good and looking forward to a good night's sleep. I am very confident that I have, after 45 years, finally found an effective, drug-free treatment for my migraines. I can certainly recommend Body Stress Release.
"A long awaited health food shop that services a wide range of organic gluten and wheat free products and Vitamins. It is great to get my favourite products locally."
"After more than 35 Years of emotional and physical heartache which has manifested into years of ill health, I can finally say I AM FREE.. WOW!! Even writing that makes me smile. Obviously I still need medical treatment, but to have that clarity is so over whelming. I am crying with joy now not sadness and frustration."
