Medical Medium – The Discovery and AHA moment

January 3, 2017

Happy New Year!

It feels good to be here. 2016 was a rather turbulent year for me (and for many others), so I’m very excited to turn a new leaf and welcome 2017.

Today I’m going to tell you a little bit of my journey with health and weight issues and of the most wonderful discovery I made in late October 2016 that I know will change my health and in turn my life. It’ll be a longish read so you might want to get a cuppa and make yourself comfortable.

I grew up in a family where for a girl/woman to be thin was the ultimate goal. Being a little chubby at three years old, my mother thought it was wise to start me off on diets (true story). This became an ongoing theme and throughout the years I was sent to family members who devised semi-starvation diets for me, right through to many health farm and clinics, where in one of them I stayed for a six-weeks fast. Coupled with a traumatic childhood, it won’t come as a surprise to you that I developed an eating disorder.

Move forward to 1992, after a spectacular nervous breakdown, I visited my very first nutritionist. She took me off sugar, wheat and dairy and this was the first time I learned about ‘real and organic’ food. As I had simultaneously started psychotherapy, I was on a healing path. Since that year I have taught myself everything about wholesome healthy foods and have enjoyed this new way of eating ever since.

I was riddled with skin problems, digestive disturbances, anxiety and weight gain which led to various health problems. I don’t drink alcohol (ever), don’t smoke, spend most of my money on organic/biodynamic food and try to have a ‘fairly’ stress-reduced lifestyle.

Not having had the greatest experiences with doctors (they know nothing about chronic disease and mysterious illnesses), and now completely alternative, I visited every nutritionist, naturopath, holistic practitioner and integrative medicine doctor that I thought highly off. People who know me will know that I’m rather resourceful and seek out great advisors. I probably could have owned another property in Islington with the money I spent on visits, tests, supplements et cetera. The sad thing is that NOTHING worked, despite my greatest efforts, dedication and positive attitude.

Now in my early fifties, with the beginnings of the menopause, I felt my health deteriorate even more in the past couple of years. I even got Tinnitus in 2015. Again, when seeing the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, he admitted that the medical profession has no clue why this condition arises and what one can do about it.

All I know is that I’ve tried everything in my power and I’m experienced enough to see the signs of a woman who was slowly but surely loosing faith that she will ever feel the way she ought to. As a Leo with a fighting spirit, (and with personal problems thrown in the mix in 2016) my positive nature and overflowing enthusiasm for life and all it offers was starting to dwindle, an alien concept to someone like me.

One day in late October, while reading the latest goop blog, I stumbled upon this article on Anthony Williams, the Medical Medium. He (and spirit) helps people heal & overcome illness and disease. I was very intrigued and immediately downloaded his first book on Kindle.

OMG – I cancelled my whole day and read all 300 pages in one go! I knew immediately that I had found ALL the answers to my health and weight issues for the past 23 years. Yes! You read that correctly. 23 long years…. I felt it in my body that this will CHANGE EVERYTHING FOR ME! And I couldn’t be happier and more greatful!

The information in the medical medium’s book is revolutionary. After 23 years of reading about health and food I’ve become a semi nutritionist myself. What I read made 200% sense and a lot of it is DECADES ahead. I won’t say anymore because I’d like people to read it for themselves. His books should be on everyone’s reading list and in every school, institution and medical centre. In fact, forget getting flowers, chocolates or alcohol as gifts for people. Just send or take them one or both of the medical medium’s books. That’s what I’ve done and will do so throughout 2017!

I now found a way to heal – and the best part is that I can now heal myself, without having to rely on health practitioners. I feel so empowered. Two weeks ago I completed the 28-day cleanse. (more on that next time) OK, this is going to be an ongoing series here on the blog where I’ll be documenting my healing journey. Look out for the next in this series (Lifestyle – Wellbeing) where I’ll share what I identified I’m suffering from and what I’m currently doing to reverse it. Meanwhile take a look at the Medical Medium’s website, which has a wealth of free information. If you know anyone that is suffering from chronic or mystery illness, do share the medical medium’s information with them. Personally I think EVERYONE would benefit from this groundbreaking information. #justsayin

    Hi Tina, you are always introducing me to new things, and I can see 2017 is going to be no different. I had not heard of Anthony William, or indeed Goop. Your honesty, as ever, is brave and admirable. All the best with this journey, and I look forward to reading your posts. Happy New Year x

    Wow Tina, what a tough childhood. I’m so sorry you went through that. Interestingly I paused once after seeing that book and thought I should get it. I definitely will now. I look forward to this series and following your journey. Here’s to a fabulous and healing 2017! Big hugs, Mel xx

      Having had a scare, you’d be wise to.
      Hope you’re enjoying your new life in Sweden.

    Happy New Year!! I’m so so glad you’ve found an answer to your health queries and beginning to feel very much ‘yourself’ again. I’m so pleased for you. 2017 is certainly a year of healing for you. Look forward to hearing all about how you get on via your blog throughout the year.

    I took a leaf out of your creative book and named 2017 ‘A Year of Growth’. Plan to develop myself and my blog community. Wrote about it all on my blog if you want to check it out (you got a mention too) –
    Late 2016 it was confirmed that I have dyslexia and now I’m so keen to find out more about it and how this affects my behaviour and mindset. Look forward to seeing you at some point this year. Want to plan a mini circa 2011 bloggers reunion lunch

    Take care, Mary.

      Happy New Year lovely.

      ‘A Year of Growth’ sounds great. Thank you:-) Will check out your post!

      Whatever the condition, I think it’s always good to know one way or another. Like this you can play to your strength.
      Glad you’re curious to see how this affects your ‘behaviour and mindset’.There’s always a silver lining…

      Bloggers’ reunions are always fun.
      Hugs x

    Thank you for sharing your story! We’re all on our own healing journey, but so much of what we experience is the same. I, too, discovered the Medical Medium from a Goop article that showed up in my Facebook feed one evening as I was lying in bed. All the years of a big question mark hanging over my head, multiple diagnoses from multiple doctors with no real answers, and all of the sudden – BOOM – everything I was reading clicked. It was an amazing epiphany moment, where I knew I finally had the answers.
