Born and raised in Coquitlam, I trained in Fine Arts and worked in Film Arts until I was in an accident at 24 years old. Minutes after leaving my grandmother’s house, a Semi truck rear ended my best friend and I on Thanksgiving weekend 2003, completely destroying her Ford Tempo. We had stopped at a red light on Highway 97 in Kelowna but the trucker missed the light and drove through us. Neither of us had any broken bones or cuts and we were taken to Kelowna General Hospital for observation.
I was not myself
My best friend noted to the paramedics and Doctors that I was not myself. I personally have no recollection of the impact, trip to the hospital or arrival, and only remember waking up to a doctor walking away saying, “if she starts to throw up, we will order a CAT scan” conveniently, I started throwing up. The CAT scan came back fine and I was released to go home the next morning.
40 mini seizures a day
I never really knew what I was experiencing at the time, I only figured out after a few months that things were wrong with my brain and body. My word recall was severely limited, and I could not seem to grasp what I felt. I became severely cutoff from my friends and family, as I could not communicate clearly. I had hit my head hard in the accident and was suffering from a lot of migraines and head pain. Above anxiety, I experienced multiple tiny shakes or petite mal seizures everyday, at least 4 or 5 an hour or 40 a day. I did not connect to my personality, I never knew who I was inside, I felt like an empty shell of a being. To the severe frustration of those around me, my most uttered phrase “I don’t know” reflected my state of health and care.
Infinite love and patience
Orthopedic Analysis, Psychoanalysis, MRI’s, CAT scans, therapists, Massage therapy, chiropractic, Anti Depressant drugs, and of course more Anti depressant drugs led me no where, worse than before and lost. Through everything, my partner supported and loved me and gave me infinite patience. Without which I am not sure I would have been able to recover so well.
kale smoothies eliminated the seizures
My first foray into taking the lead on my health was making Green Smoothies. Essentially a fruit smoothie with a leaf or two of fresh lettuce, Kale or Chard. 2 litres of smoothies a day and in one month my Seizures dropped from 40/day t0 5/day, and in the past 2 years I have experienced none at all.
the protective wall
I delved more into food, nutrition and all forms of natural healing. I researched for a holistic psychologist and found a woman nearby who explained my condition clearly, but after multiple sessions of talking about my condition I never saw much improvement. She told me that my personality was hiding inside a protective wall. She never got that wall down. I was living in an emotional flat line, nothing mattered, I had no opinions, no laughter, no sadness. It wasn’t feeling like “depression” but more like “hiding in myself”, I started to really see what I was like.
My partner’s Brother had talked about a form of energetic healing he had experienced which vastly improved his dairy allergy. Others in the family had similar results so on our next trip out we went to visit the BIE Practitioner in Toronto. She cleared me of minor food sensitivities, as well as several emotions. This brought me out of my “depression” IMMEDIATELY. The Effect was profound. For the next 2 weeks I was on an emotional rollercoaster ride, yelling, demanding, crying and happy. My partner was excited to have me back!
I continued to improve and decided I needed to investigate this modality and find out as much as possible. It seemed so hokey and silly, and “witchcraft” was fitting. I was SO Skeptical. I talked to many people and read TONS of info. Wading through skeptics websites and client testimonials. Talking to many different practitioners. I finally met the inventors of BIE and the maker of the machine. After all my research I started training. I studied and received a certificate in Nutrition Consulting and finally received a holistic allergist diploma from the Institute of Natural Health Technologies.
carpal tunnel vanishes
Through all this I had been experiencing very painful carpal tunnel syndrome in both of my hands. I had resigned to thinking that only surgery could do anything about it. I was astounded when I volunteered to be a demonstration of Dan Benor’s WHEE process in my Allergist training. I felt this simple energy psychology modality lift a huge lead weight off of my body and I have never experienced carpal tunnel pain since that day.
I started exploring Energy Psychology that day. I utilize WHEE excessively for myself as well. I have brought down a lot of my own anxieties, fears and cured myself of insomnia using WHEE.
