Guess What Happened to Me?

Share this:

Again??? Surely not again! More pain to bounce back from???
(Don’t despair, there’s a beautiful story of kindness coming up in the video and I hope you love the pictures as much as I do!)

I look in my rear view mirror and nothing’s there as I wait 3rd in line at the red light.

Suddenly a massive jolt shook my car and sent it bouncing ahead, just as the other cars started to pull away for the light turned green! Thank God I didn’t smash into them! I looked again in my rear view mirror and this charming vehicle appeared out of nowhere and rear ended me.

I was leaving in 2 days for Australia, and it made my 5 week trip difficult. My friends were kind and I still managed to see and do a lot in spite of the growing pain. That kindness continues as I share in the video below.

I saw beautiful beaches!

… Amazing flowers!

… beautiful birds

and Strange Critters!

Even though the pain sometimes brings me to tears, I know I’ll bounce back and I have beautiful story to share with you now!

After years of developing computer software and owning software companies, when I first became EHS (electromagnetically hypersensitive) I began my research about this functional disability listening to Dr Dietrich Klinghardt and learning how to protect myself.

I’m pleased to report that I continue to improve using a wide variety of solutions that I’ve gleaned from the Experts on the EMF Summit, people like Dr Klinghardt, and from my own trial and error.

Know there is hope! I’m happy to share what’s worked for me with anyone who emails me.

Learn to connect the dots and trace the variety of symptoms you may be experiencing back to the root cause.

Unfortunately Dr Klinghardt was unavailable to join the 18 experts and be a guest on the EMF Summit. So I’m thrilled to share his recent interview with you. It’s a lifesaver to understand the adverse health affects of wireless technology and learn to use it safely (50:42 mins).

Remember the study that showed all these tumors in rats illustrating adverse effects of Roundup herbicide?

The study got retracted and had to be printed in another journal. Turns out Monsanto stacked the deck, putting former employees as editor of the science journal and one on the board! The truth will out!

Do you see the importance of eating local fresh organic foods whenever possible not to mention getting full spectrum nutrition with wild superfoods?

If you want to include local nutrient dense foods in your diet this video on sprouts might give you some ideas (3:37 mins):

Oil pulling will strengthen your immune system and help you detoxify and eliminate toxins from your system. You can reverse gum receding gums and guy disease.

Try this first thing in the morning (2:09 mins):

Every effort you make towards creating a supportive lifestyle will pay off BIG time!

A Major Transformation

Share this:

The first major transformation occurred at the ripe old age of eight years
while riding the school bus and looking out the window. I let my eyes go
out of focus, and was thinking about humanity as sand grains on a vast

What difference would our individual lives make in the scope of time?
Who would remember us after we were gone? Even people like Hitler,
famous for their heinous acts would only be remembered for a few

I asked myself, “What is the purpose of life. Mine or anyone else”

A sense of freedom descended on me in a flash. I was freed from the
constraints of social norms or the futility of seeking approval.

I knew then if I could touch the hearts of even three people I’d die
contented. A vision arose of exchanging a smile with a stranger, an
old woman passing by on a steep mountain path in Tibet.

“It could be as simple as that smile” my heart leap with joy.

From that moment on my life was forever transformed. I instinctively
knew to turn my focus within, connect to that infinite thread of the
divine, and bask in grounded bliss without concern over any of the hats
I may choose to dawn in this physical life experience.

Throughout my life I continue to gratefully seek moments of
transformation… transformation that once experienced can not be

Today after 60 years on this planet, I enjoy a simple freedom where
clarity and joy overflow enabling me to playfully give from a place of
overflow versus depletion.

The gift of giving joy to others

Share this:

Having yet to see much of my adopted Canadian province called Beautiful British Columbia, this holiday season I accepted an invitation to drive eight hours north to Prince George.

I drove through intense white-out blizzards half of the way, saw surprising desert hills in Cache Creek, and experienced dense fog as I followed the gold rush trail. The hours of driving through uninhabited wilderness and ranch country made me realise yet again how vast Canada is. Canada, the second-largest country in the world following Russia, is enormous when you get in a car and set about driving.

In Prince George I experienced a heart-warming event. On New Year’s eve my friend who owns a limo, arranged to take several groups of children from the rougher part of town to see the Christmas light display on Candy Cane Lane. It was a relatively small gesture, but the joy and memories these children experienced riding in style and seeing the holiday decorations was priceless.

Of all the amazing experiences and wonderful people I met, seeing the shining enthusiasm in these young faces was the highlight of the trip. Below are some photos of the Christmas decorations on the famous Candy Cane Lane.

There is so much truth that giving joy to others multiplies the joy we receive ourselves.

The second highlight was a News Year party at the home of a First Nations woman, and involved another act of giving. I had a delightful time playing “Dice” and learning phrases in the Carrier First Nations language.

“Madil chow” means “Thank you very much”, a good phrase to know in every language!

Although I was a stranger at the party, upon donning my winter gear to leave the hostess presented me with lovely gifts wrapped beautifully. It was a perfect example of the generous nature and lack of personal ownership the First Nations culture embodies.

May you learn to give in 2017, and perhaps more importantly, may you feel worthy enough to receive. There are miracles coming your way.

Thriving Instead of Surviving the Holidays

Share this:

Holidays when the family gathers round are extremely stressful for many of you. After all, your born with your family, but you get to pick your friends.

Sometimes it’s tough when you’re put back into that box they had you in as a child, when inside you know you’re a different person.

No one knows how better to push your buttons than your family members.

It can be tough when you work yourself into a state of exhaustion trying to create the perfect holiday setting and sumptuous meal only to be left feeling overwhelmed and under appreciated.

If you want to thrive during these holidays instead of gritting your teeth and wishing it would pass as quickly as possible, here’s some simple advice that can save the day.

Tap into holiday cheer and the true meaning of joy and good will this holiday season!

As 2017 draws near, these are some of my wishes for you. . .

. . . may you look deep within the ordinary and find the beauty that lies there. See the world through a different lens . . . look at the inside of a flower, look deep into the eyes of one you love, experience the magnificence of the day and all around you.

. . . may you be IN life, not OF life. Memories are created and woven into the tapestry of our lives by fully participating in life and experiencing them.

. . . may you love yourself more fully than you have ever loved anyone else, for it is only by loving yourself can you truly love another.

. . . may you appreciate the value that you add to the world. There is nobody like you, and nobody can take your place.

. . . may you see yourself as perfect just the way you are. You are a magnificent gift to the world and you are one-of-a-kind perfection.

. . . may you find peace and joy in your life. Be patient with yourself as you would be with another. Everybody struggles. Everybody goes through difficulties at one time or another. Be kind to yourself, and you show the world that you are to be treated with respect and kindness.

. . . may you find the inner strength to do that which you think you cannot do. You are stronger, smarter, and more brave than you think. Believe in yourself!

. . . may you celebrate the many transitions that life presents, no matter how large, no matter how small. It is through the celebration of transitions that we continue to grow and be more than we ever thought we could be.

Looking forward to the arrival of 2017 and all the magnificent wonders it will bring, I wish you much love, peace, abundance, prosperity and joy. May 2017 bring amazing growth and happiness to your life.

Do You Have the Want More Gene?

Share this:

If you have the “want more gene” we need to talk!


===> Click here and clarify if that’s you.

There are people that have thrown up there’s hands and given up. They don’t believe there’s any way to get healthier, to have more wealth, to create better relationships with friends and family. They accept aging and aches and pains, financial stress, and isolation & loneliness as an inevitable part of life.

They are tightly wrapped in their cloak of misery. It provides a weird sort of comfort. Although they may whine and complain about it… they aren’t really looking for a way out.

They don’t believe we can get rid of Bayer/Monsanto and the big giants destroying our food supply. They think there’s no way to take on BIG Pharma, or a corrupt government. They don’t think we can stop the proliferation of electromagnetic radiation, or stop chemtrails. They see the economy tanking and are afraid to go down with it.

Then there are people, like me, with the “want more gene” who realise the economy may tank but we can use our creativity to thrive and work toward a better world.

That may be you too, if despite all the problems in our world you believe there is a better way… you want more out of life! You are no longer willing to react to all the demands or fear around you, but instead wish to create a beautiful life on your terms. You crave fulfillment in all areas of life.

Most people fear failure, but far worse is achieving success without being fulfilled. It is horrible to work hard to achieve a goal, only to find it a hollow victory in the end.

Has that ever happened to you?

More than ever today, people have forgotten how to connect face to face. Social media studies have proven all these virtual friends leave people feeling more disconnected than ever.

Heart attacks are highest Monday as people face the long commute going to work at a job they hate. The corporate and small business model keeps us competing for finite resources. A scarcity mentality abounds and fear runs rampant.

I’m here to show you another way… a different model based on helping each other succeed. For years I’ve assisted people to become healthy, now I can finally offer the wealth piece.

Imagine if real wealth was in the hands of the conscious people that are awake and able to help improve life for others.

Wealth derived from creativity versus competition, opens the door for others instead of throwing down the ladder of success behind as you claw and scratch your way to the top.

If I could show you a way to create freedom and success regardless of how many times you’ve failed in the past, would you be open to take action to expand and grow into inspired leadership?

Saving a Type 2 Diabetic Leg From Amputation

Share this:

Recently my time has been consumed with a compelling mission that has eaten my days and filled me with joy! It’s a treat to share it with you.

In 25+ years of integrative health coaching I never met an individual so far out in left field in terms of health and lifestyle choices… A man who from the age of 15, threw himself into his work for 41 years as a heavy equipment operator on a railroad, consuming junk food on the road and putting in long hours, sometimes 5 days straight without sleep to conduct emergency repairs. Smoking cigarettes and drinking caffeine kept him going until his body would give out from the effects of low blood sugar. Unable to talk or walk his co-workers would take him to emergency to get fixed up for the next round.

This man is a neighbour living in the suite next to mine.

Long ago… twenty years actually, he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and possibly type 3 diabetes from exposure to WiFi and electromagnetic radiation. We will test if his blood sugar rises when he is able to walk on a treadmill in the gym for 10 minutes.

He didn’t let diabetes stop him though. Hell bent on living life to the fullest and gathering all the toys possible he juggled his work-a-holic days on the rail line with trips to see his five children. Watching two marriages fall apart and feeling a sense of frustration, anger and depression grow.

At the age of 55 he retired. This wasn’t freedom 55 though. He took all of 2 days off and was immediately working for another company. Within 6 months an infection in his toes required an amputation of the three smallest ones on his right foot.

During the five weeks in the hospital he had time to review his life… a lifetime of feverish working… for what?

He decided it was time now to play.

He’d taken his railway pension as a lump sum and was now ready to dedicate the time he had left in the pursuit of fun! His daily routine was hanging out at the resort Tiki bar drinking diet cokes and eating hotdogs he jokingly referred to as “lips and assholes”. He loved taking people out on his boat and relished their joy as they whipped around on a tube, skis, or wake board. tubing

All this fun didn’t stop the decline of his health. His blood sugar hovered between 20 and 24. He smoked even more cigarettes knowing he needed to quit.

Eleven weeks after the amputation, the doctors fitted him with a boot so he could get off the crutches. They didn’t anticipate his party frame of mind nor his dedication to be active all day long. The boot was ill fitting and caused a soft spot that became a blister.

That was around the time I met him. The first while I observed this charming individual so happy to please others and give them a sense of fun out on the boat or flirt with the girls at the beach-side bar.

I knew I could help him with his diabetes… but how? Would he ever agree to the lifestyle changes required?

It is not within me to watch someone’s health “go south” without at least offering to help.

The moment for decision came when the blister blew out in a diabetic ulcer. The doctors said they would need to amputate the foot and possibly the leg below the knee. The situation wasn’t looking good and finally he was ready to embrace change and open himself to the possibility of saving his leg.

My work began in earnest.

When I looked in his kitchen and saw the food in his pantry, the challenge became clear. How do you guide a man to healthy lifestyle choices when everything he’s been doing is harmful? How do you make the change rapidly enough to save the leg without shocking his system and having him go into an all out rebellion? How quickly can you wean someone off an addiction to sugar & carbs?

I started him with Essentials, a daily packet that includes superfoods that are over 3 billion years old, digestive enzymes as a key to unlock the nutrient dense food and probiotics to assist in the absorption of this full spectrum nutrition. That superfood saved my leg from amputation in ’87 and is a staple of my daily diet.

Daily he would spend eight minutes on a pulsed electromagnetic device designed to increase his circulation by opening the tiniest capillaries  know as microcapillaries.

I made him a fresh green drink each morning from a variety of organic veggies. He soon had a nickname for his morning green drink: “dirty socks”. Yet he couldn’t deny the benefits from forcing himself to drink it, including improved bowel movements.

I purchased Chromium supplements with cinnamon from the health food store to help balance his blood sugar.

It was touch and go with the ulcer on his foot. Trying to get him to elevate the foot was an ordeal. Some days it improved, others it bled out leaving a pool of blood on the floor of some restaurant when he’d refused to elevate it.


I worked on the infection soaking his foot for 20 minutes each morning in warm water and Doterra’s Melaluka (Tea Tree) oil.

I applied Body Silk , a unique combination of nutrients and essential oils on the surrounding skin of the foot to avoid degradation of the tissue. The Body Silk quickly transformed the skin into a healthy, smooth pink that was soft and supple as a baby’s bottom. I love it for chapped heels, hands and as a hair treatment.

Colloidal silver from the health food store was taken internally and applied in a tape form to the ulcer.

By the time the amputation was scheduled the infection was getting under control. I kept thinking… if only we’d had more time… if only he’d woken up sooner and being willing to make the lifestyle choices necessary to heal.

I left for Australia and he entered the hospital for the next amputation.

I received a message from him in Australia bursting with joy! It read, “We had saved the leg! Only the two remaining toes had been amputated, not the leg below the knee.”

Later he described the sinking feeling and raw fear he felt when he awoke following the surgery wondering is he was missing his leg.

On my return to Canada, I visited the hospital and found a transformed being. He got it! Having witnessed the results of lifestyle changes he was ready to dive in.

Cigarettes became a thing of the past.  He quit smoking!

But the day inevitably arrived as it so often does during the cleansing process… he rebelled against the green drinks. Each morning as I arrived at his suite, he became more difficult and ornery facing the prospect of drinking his green drink.

This presented a new challenge. How was I going to get veggies into the body of a man who avoided them with dedicated zeal? French fries and chips were as close as he came to a vegetable.

I knew all his meat now had to be organic. What isn’t in the meat is so important! No antibiotics, pesticides, chemical preservatives, etc. Years ago I did a video on the importance of organic meat that is still applicable today.

Coffee, which leaches calcium from the bones, was replaced with a mix of herbal teas that incorporate bitter melon to help lower his blood sugar.

I’ve become creative and make pizzas with cauliflower crusts, Shepard’s pie with cauliflower & potato topping, replacing the corn with healthy veggies. Coleslaw contains apples, onions, and other finely chopped veggies, along with chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds and is mixed with homemade humus, guacamole and mayo. A fresh garden salad loaded with finely chopped vegetables is served with most meals. The homemade dressing is also extremely nutritious with a low glycemic index.

I eat at least 85% raw and it is a fun challenge to find transitional foods that will gently increase his vegetable intake from his straight meat and potatoes diet.

The day his temper got the better of him and he baulked at the green drink, was the same day Elite, a long awaited superfood powdered drink combo finally arrived.

Three of the 5 superfoods in Elite help control blood sugar. 

Thankfully he loves the taste. Elite contains 5 superfoods, 3 of which I already include separately in my daily diet.  It is so convenient!

As an added benefit, Elite also promotes hair growth, a sensitive area with my neighbour. He is self conscious of his thinning hair.

img_55581Unfortunately all his toes are amputated but the leg is saved. Each time he returns to the surgeons or nursing clinic, they exclaim they’ve never seen his foot looking so healthy.

The stitches will stay for another couple of weeks, but already the scabbing is coming off around the stitches. The surgical nurse suggested using a good moisturiser. I’ve added Rejuvenating Barrier along with the Body Silk.

I’ve seen some amazing responses from people’s skin when applying Rejuvenating Barrier on a daily basis. This serum contains Lutein and protects from artificial lighting and computer screens while nourishing the skin. That makes a big difference for me as I became sensitive to both.

My skin no longer gets prickly and sensitive when surrounded by florescent lighting in offices and stores.

As soon as the stitches come out I will add Skincerity, a roll-on breathable mask technology.  I’ve collected numerous testimonials with photos showing how this one-of-a-kind breathable mask creates an environment for the body to repair itself and reduce or eliminate scarring. There are about 48 different skin conditions that are shown to respond favourably.

Click here to see some of the testimonials

This skin technology, developed from between $7-$9M in grants from the National Health Institute (NIH), is like a second skin I roll on at night for anti-ageing. My personal experience after a serious fall that left me covered in deep lacerations filled with asphalt was fantastic.

Today, it is as if a big eraser has removed every sign of my accident except for one of the shattered molars that needs to be replaced, and a little stiffness in my fractured shoulder.

Meanwhile the transformation with my neighbour continues. His mood and focus are improving. He’s learning how to channel his increased energy while also giving his leg an opportunity to rest in an elevated position and heal.

This morning his blood sugar reading was 5.9!

If you care about your health, your children, your pets, your environment it is imperative that you understand the implications of this freight train that is headed down the tracks. I hope you get the same chills down your spine I get when you read this email and are compelled to take swift action!

After reading this post, get informed about the electronic soup we are all frying in. Watch what 18 world class experts are sharing on the EMF summit:


These experts are sharing life-saving information!


Untested 28GHz radiation blasting from millions of new hidden antennas and tuned-up “smart” meters. A corporate free-for-all, with oversight eliminated. Total, for-profit surveillance. An “internet of everything” with “hundreds of billions of microchippable products”. Everywhere and everything… and eventually, everyone.

This is not sci-fi. This is FCC Commissioner Tom Wheeler’s insane new plan, slickly badged as “5G”.

Today things are about to get much worse. Hillary Clinton supports this insane 5G rollout. We are already completely addicted to our “gadgets” and willingly buying tracking devices we wear 24/7, whether it’s our cell phone or the FitBit.

Don’t take my word for it watch this astounding video from Katherine Albrecht an expert on electronic privacy. She’s talking about Windows 10 and so much more!

It is still not too late to be heard, but you must do so now at the Parent’s For Safe Technology website.

The government’s own NTP cancer study inconveniently concluded that yes — cellular radiation DOES increase cancer. Now, the industy-lobbyist-turned-government-czar gave an uber-creepy speech invoking technocracy’s endgame with a stomach-churning sense of urgency that you can see at the Parent’s For Safe Technology website.

Here’s a list if science based resources:

1) 34 Scientific Studies Showing Adverse Health Effects From Wi-Fi:

2) Several thousand studies that indicate a biological effect and/or harm:

Ouch! I’ve had a Painful Accident

Share this:

Alison after accident

Monday May 23rd, 2016

How it happened:

The beautiful resort I call home is built on a steep mountainside.

Dining and exercise complex in the morning sun

Sunday while on my walk, I wiped out with a forward face plant on a steep mountainside paved road where I was moving down faster and faster headlong out of control. Usually I walk down zigzagging from side to side as one would ski down an expert mountain trail. But this time there was a car coming up, so I couldn’t slow my speed by zigzagging. The oncoming car was travelling up the hill very slowly. I was unable to judge the speed, and was forced to walk straight down on the side of the road.

My feet started picking up speed and I was actually running by the time the car finally passed me. Went I tried to cut across the road, I caught my foot on some uneven pavement and I flew into a forward free fall. I felt my head banging against the pavement and heard the driver of the car running toward me saying, “Don’t move!” as I pulled myself upright peeling my inert arm up off the pavement. He reached down to help me up stating the obvious, “Your bleeding.”

“I’m fine. I’ll be okay” I stubbornly insisted, just wanting him to get his hand off my painful shoulder and leave me alone to access the extent of my injuries.

At first I thought I could manage on my own and drive myself to the hospital. A resort guest who was a doctor witnessed the fall, and said she’d drive me. She asked my room number and I gave some fictitious number that came to mind. My suite wasn’t tidy enough for guests! Everyone was crowding around and I just wanted to be left alone to hop into a hot epsom salt and lavender bath. I insisted I’d be okay and was about to disappear in the maze of corridors, when she told me her room and that she would watch for me on her balcony.

When I got back to my suite with great difficulty, I removed my blouse to see a very deformed shoulder. Immediately I used the “B Spot” of the BEMER machine on the highest frequency directed at the shoulder to increase circulation. I knew the hospital trip was inevitable and I would be unable to drive. My next challenge was to put on another blouse. Fortunately I found a short sleeved one, grabbed my purse with my BC Care card, cell phone and headed out to look for the good doctor.

As promised she was there on her balcony. I waited for her, unaware that she was calling Mya the first aide at the resort, who was calling the ambulance. When the good doctor arrived by my side, I innocently asked where her car was parked.

“Oh the first aide lady is coming.” she replied. “My husband parked our car in the other parking lot”

She had a wise understanding of the full implications of the journey that lay ahead!

Minutes later, Mya arrived in style pulling up in one of the resort golf carts. “Oh my God, it’s our Alison! What happened honey? You poor thing! I didn’t realize it was you! We looked for you, but couldn’t find your room. Here can you get in this cart. Oops you’re dripping blood. We’re just going to go up to the first aide station and wait for the ambulance as our cars aren’t insured to drive you to the hospital.” she prattled on in her usual cheerful, down to earth, efficient manner and comforting manner.

We headed back up the hill past the very spot I’d fallen to await the ambulance.

Ambulance Ride to the Hospital:

It to a long time for the ambulance to arrive travelling on a windy road that takes 30 minutes when it’s in good shape. The road now is under construction and it takes even longer! Then the excruciating pain of stabilizing the shoulder for the ride back to the hospital over the bumpy roads took at least another 20 minutes.

Winding Road

They were pleased to see there was good circulation and blood flow in my arm. I mentally patted myself on the back for having the foresight to use the BEMER on the shoulder for 8 minutes immediately following the dislocation.

They were also very surprised to learn I was on no medication. I guess that’s very rare.

I asked the paramedics, “Don’t you think it would be a good idea get started for the hospital?”

“We’re in no rush” responded the male in the team. “Believe me you’ll thank us later.”

“That’s a long and bumpy road and we need to get that shoulder secured, so we don’t aggravate the injury bouncing it around” the woman added. “I’ll drive as carefully as I can, but we’re in for a rough ride. Take long deep breaths” she cautioned “hyper ventilating isn’t going to help anything. Relax as much as you can and breathe deeply.”

Once stabilized in a semi sitting position with my arm painfully braced against my chest, they loaded me into the ambulance and the male whose name fails me, got in beside me. They immediately gave me oxygen, while he prepared a self administered nitrous oxide.

“This is laughing gas and you can take as much as you want as you need it. Just bite on this, or hold it in your mouth in you case and inhale. If you start to feel nauseous breathe deeply. You might even find my jokes funny.” he said and began some paperwork.

I bit as has hard as jaw and dental injuries allowed and sucked in for dear life on every inhalation. The pain on each bend of the windy road was extreme, but I could imagine how it would have felt without the laughing gas.

“I haven’t heard any jokes yet” I chided him. “I need you to distract me please!”

After that he kept a one sided conversation going the whole trip, interspersed with the odd question from me. It wasn’t too long before tears started trickling down my cheeks and a low keening wailing started somewhere down in my esophagus. It was gentle and I could still gratefully listen to his stories.

Once at the hospital I was dismayed to see a jammed packed waiting room. So many sick people! Now the gas was wearing off, it was difficult not to give the pain full vent and howl. But when I saw the startled faces of the patients looking at my bloody face with a mixture of horror and fascination I made a supreme effort not to add more drama to the hellish scene.

They whisked me though very quickly. A tall orthopedic surgeon arrived by my side. He emanated a sense of calm and confidence that comes with experience. Again the ubiquitous question, “What medications are you on?”

“None, I responded and I intend to keep it that way!” I replied with a wry chuckle. “What’s you name doctor?”

“Spelliscy” he replied.

“Spelliscy? what nationality is that?” I asked


“Oh” I looked at his handsome features and bald head. “Were you a redhead?”

“Yup” he smiled ruefully. All the while he was accessing the situation. One gentle touch on my shoulder, combined with the two hours of dislocation, he signalled the time to prepare intravenous sedation.

The staff rolled in a machine to administer an anesthetic that would be delivered intravenously. The nurse was having trouble locating a vein in my arm, and finally had success.

At this point Dr Spelliscy’s phone rang and the other party asked if he could let Mira do the reduction (when they put it back in joint). My senses perked up. I wasted this obviously experienced and competent surgeon to do the job.

“Will you please do the reduction yourself please doctor? I hate to deprive a young person of their opportunity to practice, but I’m an athlete a value the use of my arm. Please Dr Spelliscy. promise me you’ll do it yourself. Let Mira look on.”

“Okay. I promise.” he reassured me.

“Swear on the bible?” I asked. I figured that oath would carry weight with a good Irish doctor.

“Yes” he replied with a smile.

I was going to be asleep and I didn’t want to take any chances. “Say it” I commanded. “Say I swear on the bible.”

“I swear on the bible I will do the reduction” he solemnly swore.

I’m glad he did it because judging from the bruise the next day they had to use excessive force to in the reduction (later learned this was blood from the bone marrow)

Alison bruise following shoulder reduction

When I awoke a male nurse was observing me. I asked him, “What happens next? Did they put my shoulder back in joint?”

“That’s all done, I’m just waiting for you to wake up so you can go home.” he said

“What about my chin? Did someone stitch it up?” I asked groggily

“No, we used surgical tape instead.” he replied. “Do you have someone picking you up?”

“No one, and I’ve no money for a $65 taxi ride to the resort. Could I just sleep for a couple of hours?” I felt weak with fatigue.

“We can get you a voucher. I’m afraid there is no place to sleep. We need your bed. You can rest for a little bit longer.” he said in a very unimpressed voice as if speaking to a troublesome child.

“What’s a voucher?” I inquired

“It’s a voucher to pay for a taxi to anywhere. It’s normally only used for homeless people. You’ll have to convince them that you need it.” he said.

“But what about my jaw? It feels dislocated and broken? I’ve shattered three molars and can feel the nerves? How am I going to eat?” I was trying to work this out as the fog of the IV anesthetic was clearing in my brain.

“Just a minute I’ll check” the nurse answered in a bored voice. “You’re responsible for the dental. You’ll have to see your dentist. There is a dental surgeon in the hospital, but that’s for major injuries. This is minor and isn’t covered in the hospital. We’ll be taking you down for some x-rays”

“Give me a minute. Let me see if I can reach someone that can give me a lift home.” with luck the phone was answered and I quickly explained the situation to my chiropractor friend on the other end of the line.

“Let me put you on speaker, so my husband can hear. We’re available till 4 pm at the latest and he can pick you up. Call when you’re ready.” she said as they listened to the sequence of events leading to the call.

A wheelchair arrived and I was off for x-rays. The two young radiologists had a tough time figuring out how to x-ray my shoulder, removing the sling and attempting to manipulate the arm into painful positions it was’t ready or able to assume. It worked much better when they described the photo they wanted and I contorted my body to manage the desired angle for the shot. The panoramic jaw x-ray machine was interesting and fortunately only one pass was required. It still mystifies me how anyone is able to heal in the heavy electromagnetically radioactive environment of a hospital!

Once wheeled back to my bed, we discovered it was already in use by a new patient in distress. There was no more rest for me. I was parked by the nursing station while Dr Spelliscy reviewed the x-rays. Yes, the head of the humerus bone of my left shoulder was fractured as well as the jaw. He did not mention the dislocation of the jaw, although I could feel it.

When I called my doctor friends again, Dr Spelliscy spoke to them about the injuries. Two male nurses were removing the drip line from my arm, replacing the sling the x-ray technicians had left in disarray, and I was good to go. Dr Spelliscy handed me a prescription for Tramacet, an opiate narcotic.

“Will it do any harm if I don’t fill this prescription and just use meditation instead?” I asked him.

“No harm will be done except your ability to sleep may be impacted.” he assured me.

They rolled my chair to the emergency entrance and I awaited for my ride. When I saw his car coming, I immediately rose from the chair and quickly walked to the car, delighted to escape that unhealthy environment.

My friend was surprised at my agility. He immediately me a bottle of Traumameel, and said. “Take a couple of drops every 15 minutes today, and every half hour tomorrow.” He also gave me Traumamel lotion for reducing inflammation, and Traumacare lotion for pain. He concurred with me the narcotics weren’t a good idea and off we went homeward bound. He advised me not to speak until I could get the teeth and jaw looked at and let’s me know when he’s available to help if needed.

That night the cramping in my feet made sleep difficult, but I recognized the spasms were simply an after shock from the enormous amounts of pain my body had been subjected to in the past 12 hours. As I walked off the cramps, I knew this would pass and was so grateful for the healthy EMR shielded environment of my peaceful home.

I settle in with the firm decision I will fast swallowing only supplements until I see a dentist. Little did I know the first dental appointment would be five days after the accident! In 1987, a wild microedible algae saved my leg from amputation, years later of regularly eating this nutrient dense superfood, I was cured of hypothyroidism and bipolar disorder. Now eating these supplements enabled me to fast for 5 days with no hunger pangs. It also kept my mind sharp and allowed me to be my own health advocate and make all the arrangements required to stay at home, work in dental appointments around the twice daily construction road closures, and arrange with friends to drive me back and forth to the resort. How blessed I am to have such kind and supportive friends that understand my need for this shielded home environment to heal.

Update May 26, 2016

Michael, a childhood friend contacted me as he suffered a similar face plant many years ago. His jaw had to be wired, nothing else broken. He went to the hospital to wire the jaw and his dentist was furious that he didn’t come to him first to check for damage to the teeth before wiring the jaw.

In this case, with the broken and exposed nerves, the dental work needed to be performed first, the an evaluation of the jaw bone. It’s tricky, as by bite is fine, but I’m unable to move the jaw forward in front of my upper teeth.

At the first appointment with the dentist at 9 am today, he was not surprised the hospital sent me to a dentist first. There is a sequence of events in cases like this.

First patch up the teeth, then the jaw, then do a proper job on the teeth.

They took more x-rays and determined the jaw is out of joint where it attaches to the scull and fractured, possibly broken through. Due to the perfect alignment an oral surgeon will need to evaluate if it needs to be wired, or can be left to heal on it’s own with a diet of soft food (this is now the preferred approach). The lack of forward movement of the jaw could be due to muscle spasms, or swelling and may pass with time. The request for a referral appointment has been initiated. I also have the number to take a proactive stance. Usually they deal quickly with this type of issue.

Following the preliminary evaluation, the dentist booked me for an extraction of the split molar at 2 pm. The part that was hanging loosely was rubbing up against the nerve, explaining the nerve pain. The part that was intact had a root that was very difficult to extract, It clung on for dear life, and the extraction took 45 minutes from start to finish including freezing.

Once all the work has been done it will be time to consider a titanium implant to replace the molar.

Although the other two molars have massive chunks missing, the nerve is not actually exposed and they are strong enough for me to eat soft food for now. They will have filling material to bring them back to a normal appearance after the jaw has been dealt with, along with all the other minor chips on other teeth.

If the jaw requires surgery, the oral surgeons do it in the hospital according to my dentist, so that will be covered by BC health care. After that it may be necessary to crown them, but I am hoping the filling may last, especially with my diet of superfoods, smoothies, and green juicing.

However there maybe other complications, as the teeth sustained a major brute force impact, some of the large fillings in my mouth may have failed. If so, they are a priority to crown before the filled ones. We will know that after the jaw has been dealt with, and an evaluation for cavities above the fillings can be performed.

I also have a slightly loose lower front tooth, but he said that often happens in this type of impact, and will probably tighten up. In the remote possibility, if it starts to discolour or become looser the tooth can not be saved

He feels I will not loose any more teeth in my lifetime, especially as all these cavities occurred over 40 years ago, my gums are in great shape, and that tooth extraction was very firmly bound to the bone.

My friend drove me to the dentist, then took me to his home where I slept for 4 hours in a special faraday cage that eliminates RF frequencies, with healing light and sound.

It was an amazing experience and released a lot of pain!

At the dentist, following each of the two appointments at 9 am & 2 pm, while awaiting for my ride to arrive they put me in a quiet place to sleep.

On route we saw a flowering bush that I adore. There are some here at the resort:

It was a fascinating day and the best part is I can eat something liquid or soft after I’ve slept!!! The freezing is leaving and there’s no more nerve pain!

This is my first time fasting, and I’ve not eaten since Sunday.

When my friend saw the hill I wiped out on, he said, “I was expecting a hill, not a mountainside!” That is exactly what it is.

One of several people that recommended starting a GoFundMe crowd funding campaign to pay for this dental work, which could be $10K or more is helping me get it started.

I’ve been astounded by the huge outpouring of love, support, and prayers on Facebook, and the number of dear friends ready to fly in to care for me! Amazing!

I must sleep now. Wish the shoulder pain extracted as easily as the nerve pain in my tooth!

Update May 27, 2016

Received a call from Heidi at the Okanagan Oral Surgeons office. She asked if my bite was aligned. When I affirmed it was, she said the doctor recommended a soft diet for 3 weeks.

“What about the dislocation? Did he look at the x-rays sent from the dentist?” I asked

“He looked at the hospital x-rays. He’s in the hospital today doing 6 surgeries. I’ll phone and see what he suggests.” she hung up the phone and called me back shortly. “Hearing your concern he wants to see you Monday.”

We fixed an appointment time that works with the road closures. “Did you sak him if he missed the dislocation of my jaw?” I asked

Chuckling ruefully she reponded, “Oh I couldn’t ask him that! I think it’s a good idea to come in. It will cost $95. If it was my jaw, I’d want it examined thoroughly.”

Once again it is clear to me you have to be your own health advocate.

May 29 Alison accident

One week yesterday since the accident and I am healing by leaps and bounds! I feel like a mother of a dozen kids all vying for my attention. As soon as one dominant pain gets dealt with, another one crops up with throbbing pain as if saying, “Feel me! I hurt too!”

Today I see the oral surgeon about my dislocated and fractured jaw! Here’s hoping surgery to wire the jaw is not required!

I thank everyone for your kind prayers, healing energy, love and well wishes.

Update May 31, 2016

Great news at the oral surgeon! I do not need surgery or to have my jaw wired. My alignment is fine, and the dislocation is already moving back into place as the swelling goes down.

I will be on a no chew diet for 6 weeks, in 4 months possibly having an implant. The bone looks very strong around my teeth.

Thursday it’d the orthopedic surgeon, maybe he’ll let me remove the sling to drive. I am healing with lightening speed!

Update June 1, 2016

Massive healing challenge, all prayers and healing energy gratefully accepted!

The tip of the shoulder bone (humerus) is shattered with bone pushed away from the shoulder and multiple fragments floating around the bone. This proximal humerus fracture is displaced (out of position), but was initially being treated in a sling. Now 9 days later beginning some gentle range-of-motion exercises.

Next week the orthopedic surgeon will again evaluate my progress. Should the bones not heal well on their own, surgery may be required to see if the fragments of bone can be fixed with screws. Otherwise the shoulder may be weakened, have a limited range of motion and be chronically painful, as the rotator cuff muscles have nothing to grab onto.

Update June 6, 2016

Woo wee! The surgeon is pleased that the bone shards haven’t moved significantly, and I’ve good range of motion. He’s allowing me to go into the lake and increase the range of motion, including lifting my arm over my head. I can also do it out of the lake, provided I support that arm with my uninjured arm so there’s no gravity.

I see him again in 4 weeks, at which point we’ll add strengthening exercises.

He doesn’t feel surgery will be necessary nor advised as there inherent risks, such as nerve damage, and the benefits wouldn’t be any different from the way it seems to be healing on it’s own. The tendons appear to be well attached to the bone that is impacted.

I am over the moon and filled with happiness at my body’s ability to defy all odds and heal in the most unfavourable of circumstances. My leg repair from the accident in ’87 is a mystery to the medical profession, and my shoulder seems to be following suit.

Thank you all for your love, prayers and healing energy!

Update June 8, 2016

Yesterday there was an unexpected opening at the dentist, where they rebuilt two of my molars and smoothed out some chips. They used a bite bridge to hold my fractured and dislocated jaw open.

An implant of the molar that couldn’t be saved will happen in 4 months and crowns may be required if the fillings fail from the accident impact. The dentist was pleased with the healing of the extraction site in one week.

The skin technology I’ve discovered is enabling the asphalt filled lacerations on my face, hands and arms to heal with no scarring!

Major mobility breakthrough! Love, love, love the effects of all your healing energy and prayers. Can do a passive lift above my head, and if I place my hand on the keyboard can type with two hands.

Since Monday I’ve been swimming in the cold lake and gently raising my arm above my head.

Awestruck at the healing power of the body!

It is with tears of gratitude, appreciation and love that I attempt to find words to express the “Thank You” I feel toward you

Update June 20, 2016

Yikes, somethings wrong with one of the rebuilt molars! It’s super sensitive to hot/cold and sweets. Have dental appointment Thursday as I figure it’s better to get this looked into right away to avoid a root canal. Please don’t let me need a $1.300 crown.

Update July 08, 2016

I’m delighted to report the fantastic news today at the hospital. My doctor was absolutely dumbfounded when he saw me today. He was not expecting good muscle tone and almost full range of movement in this short period. Thanks to beautiful Lake Okanagan’s cold water, nutrient dense healing superfoods, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, loads of prayers and remote healing energy. Plus this breathable mask skin technology has left me with no scarring!

Lake Okanagan

The doctor couldn’t stop smiling. After seeing so many down in the mouth patients with very little will to overlook the pain and strive for recovery, I was a surprise, a rare and welcome relief. He literally beamed!

He announced that I have no restrictions now, can do my own physio and even lift weights! He gave me a prescription for a physio session to learn the exercises. I pointed out it’s another 80 bucks thrown away as all the exercises are available from reputable sources online. So he said it’s cool if I skip it and make my own workout routine as I’m obviously on the right track.

He also made an appointment to see him in 6 weeks, but recommended I cancel it if I’m feeling fine.

I will admit I’m pretty sore and tired now! He said pain is normal as the injury was serious and there’s a lot of repair work going on. He feels it will most likely subside completely due to my healthy lifestyle and attitude of embracing recover completely, I believe him!

It’s interesting the phases my body went through the night after the accident. My body reacted to the intense pain of riding on the bumpy road for 2 1/2 hrs with my shoulder out of joint. All night my teeth chattered incessantly, it was very difficult to sleep as my feet kept curling under with intense cramping. I had to hoist myself out of bed and stomp the cramp out. Thankfully, the body can’t remember pain! The trauma has been released. Awe, appreciation, love and joy are the reigning emotions.

Here’s how the looks today.

This is an overhead angle sitting with my arm out. You can see the bone is misshapen, but the floating chips are attaching themselves again.

This angle is standing facing forward

2016-07-07 10.25.33

This is the standing back view (rather odd looking in my opinion) first time I’ve ever seen the shoulder blade.

2016-07-07 10.25.27

I was experiencing painful sensitivity on one of the rebuilt molars but that has passed. On the most recent trip to the dentist, he painted it with some kind of varnish that helped somewhat. Once I knew it wasn’t a cavity I did some EFT tapping, ignored the sensitivity and now it’s completely gone. I’ve three months to go with a smile that shows my missing molar. With luck, I may get by without needing all the crowns he’s expecting.

Thank you so much for your kind and generous support!
