I hear on good authority that sticking up for complementary therapies still gets you laughed out of a medical school classroom – at least in Nova Scotia. Yet these same doctors must believe in magic. They called my daughter’s recovery from a horrific car accident “remarkable” but they never asked what made the difference.
Without energy therapy and homeopathic cream applied soon after her severe brain injury, followed by cranial-sacral brain work and yoga, and osteopathy added a few years later, my daughter would be far from the personal trainer she is today, with a dynamic web site and blog that attest to her brain skills. Her own determination and the love of her husband played an enormous role of course but there was another critical element. As a result, two years after the accident, she graduated from her journalism program just one point below Magna Cum Laude. And kept on going. From the most severe brain injury anyone can sustain, she has about 99% of her capacity back.
You would think the doctors would want to know why. You’d think they would ask.
One of the secrets was very early intervention with homeopathic cream and energy therapy. Two months after a head-on collision that left her with her head sliced open and 14 broken or smashed bones, my daughter paid a visit to the ICU where she had spent a week in a coma.
As she laughed and chatted with the nurses, they were very surprised and delighted. The doctors, however, stared slack-jawed; clearly they had expected a vegetable. In spite of living evidence before them, they asked not a single question. Once they had put her physical pieces back together – and they did a magnificent job of that – the only thing the neurosurgeons had to offer was “time” and lack of stress to do the rest of the healing. Here she was, well able to carry on ordinary conversation, yet they did not ask why.
A mother who is an energy therapist and part of a community of competent alternative therapists does not settle for “time”. My healer friends and I began working on her brain as soon as the head wound had closed (a seven inch scar marks the spot). She was still delusional, calling people by their wrong names, babbling and very restless. She was only lucid for a minute or so each day. A quarter sized part of her left frontal lobe lay crushed as a dark mangled tangle. (As seen by me and confirmed by healer friends in Calgary who also reported the same thing.) Each treatment brought more lucidity and improvement. The jumps were very noticeable. They were not caused by “time” alone. I know this because other patients with brain injuries, admitted at the same time, were not making the same kind of progress.
“Doctors are incurious” is a very damning statement I have heard. Yes, of course there are exceptions, my own physician and several friends among them, but as a general rule, this has been my experience. And this incuriosity certainly did not help the other brain injured patients on that floor. Neither does it bode well for our care.
Here is the take-home. Treating the body and the mind without treating the energy field is like trying to turn a square cake into a valentine cake without using a heart shaped pan: it is a lot more work and has a far less satisfactory outcome. Just as a baking pan is essential for the shape of a cake; the energy field is integral to health; yet, 40 or more years since “the field” has been known, photographed, measured and taught in the West, it is still considered flakey or just plain voodoo. How wrong people can be.
My daughter is a living testament to what alternative therapies and energy work can do, yet the very physicians most people rely on, don’t appear to want to know what made such a vast difference.
What a waste. What a crying shame.
