Optometrist Alan Ming

Alan Ming has been a great help to Elaine, acting as liaison between her and opthalmologists. This is not an easy job, as eye care is a mine-field. Elaine says, “Alan is one of the loveliest men I have ever met, as well as being first-rate. I recommend him without qualification.”

 Dr Michael Rees DC

 After years of pain from a violent adjustment by Gold Coast Osteopath, Geoff Hale,  Chiropractor Michael Rees understood Elaine’s injury and knew how to repair it. Six other chiropractor/osteopaths didn’t have a clue, so Elaine recommends Michael wholeheartedly.

                                       Bowen Therapy (Bowtech)

This is a unique form of neuromuscular re-patterning, which works primarily through the nervous system on both structural and energetic levels. The technique is gentle and non-invasive, and can be performed through clothing.  Since 1986, when Oswald and Elaine Rentsch established the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia, over 14,000 people have taken Bowtech training worldwide, with 70 registered instructors in 16 countries. There are 12 countries with Bowen associations affiliated to the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia.

Bowen Therapy is appropriate for everyone, from the highly trained athlete to newborns, pregnant women, elderly, and the chronically ill. Bowen has been successful in treating musculoskeletal problems, such as back and neck pain, scoliosis, sporting injuries, TMJ alignment, and carpal tunnel syndrome. It is also renowned for its effectiveness with internal conditions, such as migraines, digestive and elimination complaints, colic in babies, and respiratory problems, including asthma.

A Bowen treatment consists of gentle, rolling movements. These stimulations activate a systematic response so powerful that a pause of a few minutes is observed to allow them to be integrated. A pattern of movements and pauses continues throughout the treatment. The rhythm is soothing and most patients fall asleep at least once during the session. Benefits are usually apparent within two sessions, even when longstanding conditions are being treated. Bowen results are lasting and profound.

Elaine says that there is only one thing wrong with Dr Barry — he lives far away, when we need him desperately in Australia. He’s one of the best doctors going, and was a huge help to Elaine when she was writing her book. She rang him repeatedly and he always had time to help. If only all doctors were like this! While his location is unfortunate for Australia it’s good for the UK, and well worth any effort required to become his patient.

See Chapter 2, of Elaine’s book,  for Dr. Durrant-Peatfield’s life-saving information on the thyroid and adrenal glands.

The Gerson Institute

1572 Second Avenue
San Diego, CA  92101
USA Phone:  (619) 6855 353 and 888 4 GERSON
Founded by Charlotte Gerson, daughter of Max Gerson, MD, the Institute’s affiliated clinic, located in Tijuana, Mexico, treats a variety of chronic illnesses; in particular, all forms of cancer.

Elaine researched clinics extensively when her mother was diagnosed with bone cancer. They decided this was by far the best place in the world for her to be treated, and it was.
Elaine can recommend The Gerson Institute highly, but unfortunately it has become extremely expensive. But what hasn’t?
