Anne Recovered after 10 years of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

By Russell Stubbs

Anne was a mother of two from Norway, she was thirty nine years old. She caught a virus in 1999, from which she never completely recovered. Anne was diagnosed with post viral syndrome (PVFS) at first. This developed into M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Anne experienced extreme fatigue, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and Insomnia. She also became sensitive to sound and light.

Due to the brain fog she was suffering the years seemed to drift by in haze. Anne was tested for many other health complaints by her doctor, all with a negative result. She was offered CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), graded exercise and pacing. Nothing gave her relief or helped her condition. Anne searched for and tried alternative approaches which included acupuncture, homeopathy, osteopathy, herbalism, as well as many others. Some helped in the short term, but nothing seemed to last.

Anne was now suffering a lot of physical pain. She was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. All that was on offer were painkillers and anti-depressants. In year nine Anne read in the paper about a Norwegian ME sufferer who had traveled to the U.K. for a training programme called the Phil Parker Lightning Process. She came across stories on the Internet of more ME/CFS sufferers who were now completely well. After taking this training their health had turned around rapidly, hence the name -- The Lightning Process.

Anne thought that these people could not have been suffering in the same way she was. Most of her bodily systems were affected and the illness was so physical - how could this be cured by a training programme? In the Norwegian papers, more recovery stories appeared throughout the year. Anne decided that she had to try The Lightning Process. She discovered that certain U.K. practitioners were running Lightning Process courses in Norway. Anne contacted me six weeks before the ME/CFS recovery course in Oslo.

I informed Anne that in the recovery course, I included a number of other valuable techniques along with the Lightning Process. Anne started straight away with some of the self-help resources from my website. These are all easy ways in which to start to re-train the nervous system. Anne also downloaded the free relaxation mp3 produced for ME/CFS sufferers.

Anne used self-applied tapping or acu-pressure techniques as well as focused breathing exercises as part of the self-help. She learnt to reduce the intensity of her symptoms and increase her energy with these simple daily practices. Her sleeping improved after listening to the guided relaxation recording. These techniques weren't necessarily going to cure the ME/CFS, but Anne felt hopeful as she learnt how to influence her condition, after feeling helpless for such a long time.

During The Optimum Energy Training Course Anne learnt The Lightning Process and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). The training was for four hours of each day over three days. There was a significant change on day one of the training when the brain fog that she was so used to had finally left her. It wasn't all easy for her and Anne realized that she had to put the work in to get the results she wanted. She spent time practicing all that she had been taught. By the end of the third day she knew that she had the tools and know-how to get 100% better.

I followed up Anne after the course with some coaching over the telephone. Anne was doing really well, her symptoms were fading and energy increasing as each day passed. She continued to work on her stamina and fitness for the next month until she was completely well. Anne's story might sound too good to be true, but this kind of transformation is what we regularly see with people using this approach. This strategy isn't necessarily right for all. You need to be ready and prepared to commit to the necessary short-term work. For people who are, the results of applying the training, as they were for Anne, can be quite remarkable.
