Bad experience

with 6 comments

Yesterday’s trip to the bio-resonance practitioner was a bit of a waste of time. A lot, actually. And the more I thought of the things she had said, the more upset I became.

I think she’s a bit of a quack. Now, I’m not writing off the Quantum machinery itself, or the bio-feedback techniques. I think they are invaluable and great steps forward on the more alternative side of medicine. But the practitioner wasn’t genuine. She’s obviously in it for theΒ  money, and I never got much for my money at that.

I had to sign one hell of an indemnity form, which all became clear afterwards when she gave me a truly awful concoction to get rid of my supposed gallstones. What a joke. Don’t you think I may have noticed if I had gallstones? The recipe called for four teaspoons of epsom salts, grapefruit juice and olive oil. I probably would have said goodbye to this world if I had drank it. No, man!

The recommended ‘diet’ for my individual system turned out to be the blood-group diet, which I don’t buy into at all. The diet is far worse than the one I’m currently on. It was merely a one size fits all computer printout. So much for being unique. The woman is completely clueless about diet. I know how to eat. I don’t always practise it, but I’ve read enough books on the subject.

She picked my brains like a fortune-teller to come up with her ‘findings’. I was so disappointed. And the things she did come up, were nothing new to me, and she phrased it in a way that really upset me.

Like she said that ms is like a slow version of what happens when somebody commits suicide by gassing themselves in a car. She said first of all the legs become paralysed, then the rest of the body, then the breathing, and then when the person changes their mind and wants to get out, they can’t. What an awful thing to tell somebody with ms!

As if that wasn’t bad enough, she then came up with another analogy. She said when you spray a bug with insecticide, you paralyse its central nervous system, and it is paralysed. It doesn’t die, just gets swept out the door, where it later dies of hunger and exposure. That bug has ms, she finished.

She was doing heavy-sell all the while, even asking me what my husband does for a living so she could determine our income and buying capacity.

I feel like I was totally screwed over.

But oh well, I guess you win some, you lose some.

As soon as I arrived at the place, I felt that something was amiss. There were pictures just of her on the wall, for example. In her place of work. Must have been at least twenty.

What bothered me the most, was that she didn’t explain the process to me, even though I was asking questions. And you know how much I like to know what’s going on. No, she just told me all the things that are wrong with me. Including my liver. Surely all those specialists that I went to (who did specific tests on liver function) would have picked something up? She had a lot else to say, but I’m not even going to mention them.
(BTW I can’t get the italics off, for some reason. And yes, I do know how).
Better luck next time, I hope. But not with that charlaton.

  2. Luckily you are a too strong/happy/postive person to let people like that get to you. Just keep doing what you’ve been doing, you are doing great. I’ll stop before I get all soppy πŸ™‚ Bye.

  3. Ew! And here I was, so excited that you would love your biofeedback experience like I did mine, years ago. Ahhhh well, I guess some are just in it for the money and don’t really know what they are supposed to… .like psychics! Mine surprised me when he said “you have gingivitis, right?” (Which I do).. “it’s because you are so mineral deprived, your blood is steeling minerals from your teeth and gums…” and he said I’m mineral deprived because of my high carb diet, I pee them all out. ARGH! He was so on the money with me it pissed me off lol Sometimes the truth hurts!

    Stick with what you know is working, like your ion cleanses and swimming and great attitude! πŸ˜€

  5. Oh, I forgot to mention in my already-too-long-previous-comment, about those analogies… OMG I can’t believe she said that stuff to you!!! We have the MS Society for that, we don’t need that kind of negativity coming from a supposed holistic healing type person. She needs help in that “attitude” area. Geesh.

  6. Wow that certainly didn’t sounds like a good experience, She needs to learn some tact and empathy skills…

    I took my kids for a bio-feedback session thing once and didn’t buy into the idea at all. Seemed like a complete crock to me. Like you I DO think there is some truth and science to these things, but just not in the way they are being applied.

    The ion-detox thingy sounds much more feasable and helpful.

    p.s. I had 2 giant cockroaches in my house last night, I thought of you (SORRY! πŸ˜‰ ) as I took the doom out. I really didn’t want to use doom, but the though of those thing alive in my house while I slept was just too much for me.

    You however are as far from a cockroach as possible. You’re and otter aren’t you? πŸ˜‰
