A woman presented last year with pain everywhere in her body. After fourteen hours of Gillespie Approach therapy, she felt terrific. Her brain cycle was an amazing 380 seconds. As a professional writer, her life was great. But once therapy is completed, we do not offer a lifetime guarantee.
Just recently, she was struck on her right temple by a thrown golf ball. She immediately felt a negative change in her body. Her doctor diagnosed a concussion and told her to take two months off from writing. This was a difficult message to hear.
She was diagnosed with dysautonomia and, in her own words, described the changes in her body. “I’ve had very high blood pressure (now medicated), dizziness/nausea following exercise to the point of needing to lay down/sleep for 30-45 minutes to settle (but feel generally fine while working out), feeling either very hot or very cold and out of line with the room/outside temperature, excessive sweating when even mildly exercising (this resolved within 4 weeks), and constant diarrhea throughout the day.”
“Also I did have intense sound sensitivity (which has begun to resolve) and a bit of general dizziness at times, but now is solely linked to exercise. I very strangely experience an excess of REM sleep, when I should spend little time in the deeper stages.”
Dysautonomia is a malfunction of the autonomic nervous system, which subconsciously runs our breathing, heart rate, digestion, and other systems. I have found that the Gillespie Approach may help to normalize this system.
Clinically, I found that her 380-second brain cycle had dropped precipitously to ten seconds. Wow. I have found that when people go from a high brain cycle to zero or low seconds, the quality of their life is turned upside down. I believe that this is what happened to her.
The first visit resulted in a nice 60-second brain cycle. I will see her over a number of visits to hopefully return to that long cycle and health.
