My name is Michelle Clemons. I was a professional violinist for over 20 years, before becoming interested in the healing arts. I embarked upon various courses of study and became a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction facilitator, a Master Practitioner of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), a Life Coach, clinical Hypnotherapist, and an advanced practitioner and trainer in EFT. (Emotional Freedom Techniques). These modalities can sometimes be useful for clients, as additional support, if required.
I became an energy practitioner because Bio-Magnetic Healing and, shortly afterwards, shamanic energy sessions completely transformed my life and health at a time when I believed that there was no hope left.
I was chronically ill for a period of over eight years. Initially I fell inexplicably ill with the Epstein Barr Virus. This virus, also known as Mononucleosis or Glandular Fever, directly led to a condition called Pericarditis, (an inflammation of the lining of the heart). As one of the complications of this condition, I unfortunately developed a serious heart arrhythmia. Even when the Epstein Barr virus had officially left my system several months later, I was told that the Pericarditis would never go away completely. In addition, the virus left behind a long-term legacy known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).
I had never experienced a fatigue like this in my life. I was obliged to scale down and then eventually give up work completely. I then was unable to work at all for over six years.
As I searched advice and treatment from traditional, allopathic medicine for these various debilitating conditions, my health situation deteriorated still further. I gradually became aware that allopathic medicine sought to treat the various symptoms of my ill health and never at any stage addressed the actual cause.
I was told that my only options for my cardiac problems were long and complicated interventions under General Anaesthesia; unfortunately these never actually worked for me. With each consecutive failure, I was advised to repeat the procedure, leading to over 20 hours of General Anaesthesia in a 12 month period. Additionally, I was prescribed strong medication for the arrhythmia, which provoked a myriad of secondary side effects without ever actually improving the original problem.
Thus, over time, I developed new symptoms/maladies that were directly related to these secondary side effects, prompting more specialists and more medications in their turn. I was advised that these were now life-long conditions, and that all the medications treating symptoms old and new were to be taken for the rest of my days. As time went by my body became increasingly intoxicated. Not only did my cardiac problems continue to escalate, but I had now developed chronic asthma and hypothyroidism as a direct consequence of the ever-increasing pharmacopoeia that I was prescribed.
My various specialists instilled enormous fear into me, even as they admitted that there was nothing more that they could do, apart from continue to prescribe these “life-long” medications.
By this stage I was extremely ill, very weak and vulnerable and getting worse; poisoned by all the anaesthesia, pain killers and the smorgasbord of daily drugs that had been forced upon me. On top of all my existing ailments, I now had chronic digestive problems, chronic insomnia, chronic asthma, hypothyroidism, hair loss and total exhaustion. Even walking to the kitchen was a major achievement. I had become an invalid.
Eventually I realised that my future quality of life was in grave jeopardy if I didn’t do something drastically different. Thus, I sought out ways of healing through natural means. I discovered that certain naturopaths treat the “cause of the cause” of physical ill health through examining the terrain of the body as a Whole, seeking re-balance so that homeostasis can take place, and not merely trying to alleviate the individual symptoms. I found an experienced naturopath from this school of thought, who prescribed a regimen of cleansing and detoxing my entire system to evacuate the build up of poisons that I had been given over the past years by allopathic medicine. This detox was not for the faint hearted, but absolutely essential to get my physical body back on track.
It took nearly three years of intermittent fasting, healthy eating and important life-style changes before I was ready to wean myself off all of those “life-long” medications, under the close supervision of my doctor/General Practitioner. This decision, of course, was my own personal choice, and I would never recommend or suggest abandoning medications to my clients. Any potential decision of this nature should take place slowly and carefully, under the close supervision of a trained medical practitioner.
I was still chronically weak and exhausted when I embarked upon a series of Bio-Magnetic Healing sessions with the wonderful and highly talented Edeltraud Grace. After only four months of regular treatments, my health and my energy levels were completely transformed. It was quite extraordinary. That is the only word that I can use to describe the changes. I no longer suffered thyroid problems, or asthma, nor did I have recurring digestive or sleeping problems. The absolute miracle was that the Pericarditis completely disappeared. My only remaining problem was my constant heart arrhythmia, which continued unabated and was gradually weakening the heart muscle itself. Although my energy levels were much improved and everyday life was so much easier as a consequence, eventually I fell into Heart Failure, as a direct result of the arrhythmia. At this point I consulted a shaman in USA who treated me with distance healing. After only a few sessions, my arrhythmia mysteriously and completely disappeared! (Much to the amazement of my cardiologists)! To this day it has not returned and my Heart Failure has equally vanished. These many years of physical suffering and finally healing fully, have led me to walk this sacred path of sharing my experiences and doing my best to help others to heal. Thus I embarked on a course of study in Bio-Magnetic Healing in 2016, followed on shortly afterwards by an intense course of Shamanic Energy Medicine, taught by Alberto Villoldo at his renowned "Four Winds Light Body School" in the USA.
My aim is to help others who are suffering chronic ill health, the way that I was; to teach them to never give up hope, and to show them that real healing works from the inside-out, and not the outside-in.
