I am a Registered Nurse, Energy Healer, Author and Entrepreneur.
Six years ago this blog was a forum for me to put forward my campaigns and theories on health and wellness within a traditional, mainstream context. But three years ago my whole outlook on health transformed radically with the diagnosis, surgery and fallout of my little girl being diagnosed with an enormous brain tumour.
For two years I battled with and also against conventional medicine to find my little girl help and a cure for the devastating condition, Hypothalamic Obesity, that was the fallout of the aggressive surgery to remove her tumour. I fought for and facilitated two medical World-Firsts within this time – one I have officially written up and been published in the Medical Evidence Base (see my case report here). My motto was been “If science won’t move for you, move science.”
What an eye opening experience it has been for me, to become a consumer of the system I previously took such pride in contributing too, as the ‘old’ Nurse Naomi. What has struck me the most is the inherent sense of ‘disempowerment’ I have felt as the vulnerable parent of a sick child for whom the health care system could not (and, sometimes, would not) help.
When my daughter’s brain tumour returned something within me changed – although I could barely fathom how a parent could be a peace whilst their child suffered, I was aware I had stopped ‘fighting’ Hana’s condition, but instead found love in place of hate, and peace forming in the place that had been occupied by fear. I ‘woke’ up to my Spiritual nature and quickly began training as an Energy Healer – Theta, Reiki and Intuitive Healing and will be offering Skype consults later this year.
Meanwhile, I continue to use this blog as a platform to explore alternative and integrate health modalities, document Hana’s progress and my own pursuit of ‘Truth’ surrounding health and wellness.
