Hi, my name is Wendy Odey, I have been working as a Nurse in General Practice for over 20 years and see clients with a wide range of health conditions, some of which we can only help them manage their symptoms ie chronic pain, chronic fatigue syndrome.
My interest in Neuroscience started when my daughter became unwell a couple of years ago and spent many months undiagnosed with chronic leg pain and numerous other symptoms.
She spent 8 months in a wheelchair before being diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Central Neural Sensitisation and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She spent a week in Starship Hospital and the next few months in a Children's Rehabilitation Hospital. She had amazing staff and we are very grateful for their care, when she was discharged she was walking with elbow crutches but still had CFS, blotchy painful legs, food allergies and was on very strong pain relief to control her leg pain.
Desperate to get her well I heard of the success of the Lightning Process®. I was sceptical at first but we had nothing to lose. Retraining of the brain, 'the brain produces pain' it made sense. After day 2 of the training her legs had returned to normal colour, her limp and circulation improved dramatically. By the end of day 3 she was transformed, the excruciating leg pain she was living with each day had resolved as did the CFS.
She had missed 80% of school that year and could quickly return to normal hours. Seeing this transformation I wondered what if I could learn this. I see patients who live with chronic health problems every day. How great would it be to help them improve their lives too!!
