Sorry I have been quiet for a while, I have been and still am in hospital on very high doses of painkillers, which mean that I have been unable to think straight, see straight or co-ordinate myself. I am going to split this catch up into a few different posts so that it is not too long and overwhelming.
On Thursday night, after the drama of the day my pain levels were starting to tick up and I was taking a lot of pain relief in the form of Oxycodone, Paracetomol, Ibuprofen and Buscopan. Anything to try and relieve the pain, which was increasing as the night wore on. I got barely any sleep and was taking Oxycodone about every 2 hours. When I “awoke” the next morning I felt truly awful. Nikki was due to come over at around 11 am and I had to go and have bloods taken for the functional tests that I am doing with Kim, which needed to be done on an empty stomach. I dragged myself into the shower feeling like death warmed up and got ready. My body really wasn’t up to sitting on the back of Ioannis’ Vespa and so we got a cab over to Harley St to get the blood tests done. Nikki met us there and we had a quick catch up before my appointment with Carlyle at 12.
To give you an understanding of what Carlyle does, I asked him to explain it to me in simple terms.
Carlyle uses a system called Neurological Integration System (NIS). “NIS is a prioritised set of tests assessing brain/body communication. It takes what we know from advanced brain research and blends it with 5000 year old energy medicine using Meridian access points.
NIS can be compared with an app update on your phone or tablet. Everything on your device can be working fine, but with an update it can function even better.
One of the ‘brain apps’ we focus on with NIS is immunity and how the body deals with viral, bacteria, fungal or parasitic immune challenges. Integrating the brain with the body through the meridian system helps focus the immune system to properly organise and fully deliver its natural response. Provided that we are supporting our healing with proper rest, a clean diet and deal with issues around stress, a return to a healthier state is rapid.
Super gentle, safe and very effective.”
Carlyle has me lay down flat on a treatment bench on my back with my right arm up in the air. He then runs through a series of tests by touching my head and stimulating my brain and then touching another part of my body. With each movement he checks the strength in my right arm. If there is good brain/body communication, my arm stays strong. If there is an issue with that particular message, my arm will drop easily. This is completely out of my control. Carlyle can then tell from the weak points and the sequence in which the weak points occur, where the communication errors are. When we first started doing this, Carlyle was able to pick up a virus within my body, also my brain wasn’t correctly communicating with my immune system. Issues such as stress, doing too much, bad diet and toxins from drinking alcohol and the products that we put in our bodies from the cosmetic and cleaning products that we use can all mean that our immune system gets caught up fighting these things rather than being able to concentrate on fighting the really serious stuff like cancer.
This was true with my immune system. He was also picking up issues around my gall bladder, which has an emotional connection about anger and not letting go, he also picked up issues in my lung the next week, which is about sadness, grief and yearning. Carlyle is then able, by putting pressure on my arm to find out which emotion he is dealing with and exactly what age it triggered. It’s mind-blowing! But your body knows exactly what’s going on and you have memory at a cellular level, which if you allow yourself to tune into your body, will show you everything you need to know. Carlyle then got me to go back and find a strong memory and visualise it. For me, everything seems to have happened and bedded in when I was 7. Once I have got the memory strongly in my conscious awareness, Carlyle invites me to go back to my seven year old self and feel that emotion strongly, he then does some energy work to help me to release that memory from my cells. I am always very dizzy when I sit up after having done this work but I notice that I am letting go of feelings of anger and sadness. Every time I see Carlyle, I need to go for a nap and let my body realign itself. I usually end up napping for hours as my body is so out of whack.
As time has been going on my responses are improving and my immune system is starting to switch back on again.
For anyone who feels out of whack and has pain, who is just not feeling full of vitality, or who is constantly tired, I strongly recommend that you go and see Carlyle. He is based at 1 Harley St and I have hyperlinked his website under his name so click the pink word. His appointments are short as he just tunes straight into your body to find the issue, which is perfect for busy City professionals who are time poor. He is worth every penny of his fees and then some. He will explain to you, why vitality is so important and if you follow his advice, you will see huge changes in your health and wellbeing.
I came out of my session with Carlyle and met with Nikki and Ioannis who went for a coffee while I was being treated. My pain was getting worse and I was starting to get spasms. We got in a cab. Typically, it was a cabbie who bounced over all of the speed bumps and I was in agony. By the time we got back to my flat the spams had started to come in waves. I took all of the pain relief that I could get my hands on. Nikki was holding me and crying and Ioannis was really stressing. Sometimes Ioannis’ fear can manifest itself in him appearing to be really frustrated with me and so I got really upset with him. Nikki held me and calmed me down and explained that he was just really worried about me and I had to allow him to express that but know that it is him expressing his fear and worry because he loves and cares about me so deeply.
Nikki had to go because she had to collect Rosie from the child minder. She really didn’t want to go and leave me in this state and was very upset when she left. She just kept reminding me that Ioannis loves me and he is scared and that I must allow him to show it in his own way and understand that he is not frustrated with me, just that he feels powerless. By this time, the pain relief that I had taken had kicked in and the spasms calmed down. I laid on the bed with Ioannis and was able to verbalise my frustration and feelings with him. I told him that I felt that he was very frustrated with me lately and that I was picking up on his negative energy, which was having an effect on the way that I was feeling. I suggested that I thought it was a good idea that he get someone professional to talk to too, so that he could talk through his worries and fears and emotions rather than letting them overwhelm him. He needs to know that everything he is experiencing is totally normal and not get frustrated with himself. I suggested in the first instance that he speak with Danielle as she knows the full picture and just how serious it all is. She also knows me and how I am reacting. I asked him to speak to her to see if he felt a connection with her and if he didn’t, that was fine too and we would ask to her to recommend someone else. He agreed. As we talked this through and were both able to express our worries and frustrations, we were able to come back to a place of love and peace.
Just as we did this and cuddled up together, the spasms kicked backed in… Big time. The pain was at the same level as it was when my liver first kicked off and I was first admitted to hospital. The spasms were coming constantly and I was screaming with pain. Ioannis called an ambulance, which seemed to take about three lifetimes to arrive. It was around half an hour as they had got stuck in traffic. In that time, the only position that I could get into to lessen the force of the contractions was to stand, bent over my bed hanging onto the headboard, to lean into as the spasms came. Poor Ioannis didn’t know what to do with himself or me. It was incredibly scary for him and he was trying his best to hold it together. I could hear him taking big, deep breaths in and letting the air out in and attempt to calm himself.
He tried to come and hold me and rub my back but the pain was so intense that I couldn’t bear him to touch me. So I just stood there, bent over the bed, wailing in agony as each spasm hit me.
