The results were, in a word, astounding! My stomach hasn’t felt this good in 2 years. No more indigestion, acid reflux, pain or tenderness in my stomach. Perfect digestion. And all my menopausal symptoms are completely gone! Also, the affirmations really helped me to come to terms with my situation.

Having been on the programme to eliminate Epstein Barr, I lost 7kg’s, have more energy, my sleep has improved and I feel happier in myself. I know that I am not alone with these challenges and there are plenty of people worse off than me. I hope my journey can help others.

After the second kinesiology healing session, I realised just how powerful the corrections for imbalances and releasing of stresses. After 5 sessions and 3 months later I have lost 15 kg, I have come down from 60mg of cortisone to 5mg alternate day, completely off my water pills. I am feeling alive a well and have a drive for life again. I can’t wait to get up in the morning and say hello to life every day. I am loving my healing journey, will continue with my process with Gillian.

I have been suffering from severe pain and swelling of my left ankle for more than a year . After several visits to doctors , specialists,MRI scans, sonars and Xrays and thousands of rands later no one had an answer . After only one lymphatic drainage massage and ozone treatment to my surprise there were an immediate improvement. After the 3 rd treatment I could walk normally and the swelling was gone . My last treatment was more than a month ago and no swelling , no pain and no medication . I will recommend this treatment to everyone . It sure changed my life .

Your body is The Messenger

Featured

In 2003 my entire life changed when a book found its way to me. It changed my life, literally. ‘You can heal your life’ by Louise Hay is still a book I turn to today for guidance and inspiration. I have gifted it to many clients and friends. If you have not read it, do yourself a favour and get a copy.

Because of this book I pursued Kinesiology 16 years ago. It is the one modality that powerfully combines Mind Body balance by connecting with the body as the messenger. The universe has a way of sending you what you need right on time when you need it.

I was at the time living in Johannesburg, a national sales manager for a few online and print brands with a staff compliment of around 15. I was financially responsible for a parent and dealing with quite a bit of stress and unresolved trauma from my upbringing.

During this same time, while vacationing in Knysna, I was also led to a kinesiologist called Jaqi Lee who was practising kinesiology in Knysna and I was blown away with the two sessions I experienced with her. I was suffering from debilitating back and neck pain and she was able to tune into my body and release stress around relationship issues between me and my mother. Needless to say, the pain went away. 😊
Below is just a small insert from Louis’s book “Heal your body”. May this information help you. Maybe you can relate to some of the information.

“I’ve learned that there are really just two mental patterns that contribute to dis-ease: fear and anger. Anger can show up as impatience, irritation, frustration, criticism, resentment, jealousy, or bitterness. These are all thoughts that poison the body. When we release this burden, all the organs in our body begin to function properly. Fear could be tension, anxiety, nervousness, worry, doubt, insecurity, feeling not good enough, or unworthiness. Do you relate to any of this stuff? We must learn to substitute faith for fear if we are to heal.
Faith in what? Faith in life. I believe that we live in a “Yes” Universe. No matter what we choose to believe or think, the Universe always says yes to us. If we think poverty, the Universe says yes to that. If we think prosperity, the Universe says yes to that. So, we want to think and believe that we have the right to be healthy, that health is natural to us. The Universe will support and say yes to this belief. Be a “Yes person and know that you live in a “Yes” world, being responded to by a “Yes” Universe.
If you find yourself battling with some imbalance, ask yourself: Is it one of the forms of fear, or is it one of the forms of anger? Are you willing to release those thoughts? Are you willing to replace those thoughts with positive affirmations?* Loving yourself will also contribute greatly to healing your body, for love heals.
So how do you love yourself? First, and most important: Cease all criticism of yourself and others. Accept yourself as you are. Praise yourself as much as you can. Criticism breaks down the inner spirit; praise builds it up. Look into a mirror often, and simply say: I LOVE YOU, I REALLY LOVE YOU. It may be difficult at first, but keep practicing, and soon you will mean and feel what you say. Love yourself as much as you can, and all of life will mirror this love back to you.” Louise Hay.

Some metaphysical ‘causes’ behind physical issues:

(Below are a few that I have worked with in my practice over the past 16 years)

Adrenal problems: Defeatism, No longer caring for self. Anxiety
Anxiety: Not trusting the flow and the process of life
Arthritis: Feeling unloved. Criticism, resentment
Asthma: Smother love. Inability to breath for one’s self. Getting stuck in childhood.
Back issues: Fear of money and lack of support
Bladder issues: Anxiety. Holding on to old ideas. Fear of letting go.
Breast issues: Refusal/fear to nourish self. Putting everyone else first.
Candida: Feeling very scattered. Lots of frustration and anger. Demanding and untrusting relationships.
Cholesterol: Clogging the channels of Joy. Fear of accepting Joy.
Colon: Holding on to the past. Fear of letting go.
Eczema: Breath taking antagonism. Mental eruptions.
Fatigue: Resistance. Boredom. Lack of love for what one does
Gall bladder: Bitterness. Hard thoughts. Condemning. Pride
Insomnia: Fear. Not trusting the process of life. Guilt.
Joints: Represents changes in direction in life and the ease of these movements.
Liver: Seat of anger and primitive emotions
Lymph issues: A warning that the mind needs to be recentred on the essentials of life. Love and Joy
Shingles: Waiting for the other shoe to drop. Fear. Tension.
Shoulders: Represent our ability to carry our experiences in life joyously. We make life a burden by our attitude.
Thyroid: Humiliation. “I never get to do what I want to do. When is it going to be my turn”?

I practise from the quaint little Art Centre at 4 Montagu Street, Knysna from Mondays to Saturdays if you would like assistance into tapping into your body and dealing with issues of disease or discomfort.

May you love yourself more and more each day.

Gastritis and hormonal issues resolved

I went to see Gillian because I had been experiencing recurring bouts of gastritis for over 2 years and I just never seemed to get 100% well. I was also experiencing quite intense menopausal symptoms, namely regular hot flushes, night sweats, insomnia and restless legs at night.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but Gillian’s calm, friendly and down-to-earth manner immediately set me at ease. She took a very thorough history and asked about every single aspect of my life. I experienced the actual kinesiology session to be gentle and healing, but also surprisingly deep and very personal. I had expected to receive input about my stomach, but most of the healing was around emotional issues and limiting beliefs.

Gillian gave me a few mantras and affirmations to use and also recommended a complete parasite cleanse. I was skeptical that a parasite cleanse would address my menopausal symptoms, but I committed to the process and also to the very strict diet for 2 weeks.

The results were, in a word, astounding! My stomach hasn’t felt this good in 2 years. No more indigestion, acid reflux, pain or tenderness in my stomach. Perfect digestion. And all my menopausal symptoms are completely gone! Also, the affirmations really helped me to come to terms with my situation.

I’m feeling really well – energetic and positive – even more than a month after the cleanse. I’ve pretty much returned to my normal eating patterns, apart from the glass of fresh celery juice I drink every morning on an empty stomach, but none of my symptoms have returned.

I would definitely recommend Gillian. She is a gifted and intuitive healer.

Lymph drainage and detoxing

Detoxing is important as it assists your body in getting rid of waste, toxins and pathogens. This reduces and even eliminates many symptoms AND even helps you to lose weight and feel great.

One ways you can provide this support for your body is manual lymph drainage massage.

The lymphatic system plays an important role of keeping the immune system functioning. Adverse lifestyle choices, stress, toxins, pathogens, pregnancy, surgeries and medications compromise the immune system. A sluggish lymphatic system can lead to major imbalance and a diseased state.

During a manual lymph drainage massage a therapist will gently massage you from your feet to your head as your lymphatic system runs throughout your body.

A list of symptoms that can benefit from lymphatic drainage:

  • Edema
  • Skin disorders, such as acne, rosacea, eczema
  • Metabolic problems, including fatigue, sleep disorders, chronic pain and stress
  • Gastrointestinal issues, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), celiac and Crohn’s disease
  • Rheumatology disorders, like arthritis and osteoporosis
  • Neurologic problems such as migraines and vertigo
  • Respiratory congestion, sinus

Testimonial: Lupus – from barely surviving to thriving

“I realised that I was in serious trouble in mid-2015. My health a taken a bad turn, in and out of hospital, could not walk more that 150m without resting, completely out of breath, 3 to 4 asthma attacks daily, my lungs were collapsing fast. Had difficulty getting up and going in the morning and was not really in the mood for life.

I was diagnosed with Lupus in my heart and lungs, there was water around my heart and lungs and it was seeping through the walls, flooding the lungs and the heart with too much fluid. I as a result of the medication developed Addison’s disease, and started having problems with my stomach, and so the list carries on. My life was in chaos; my relationship was in trouble my kids were in a mess, I new I had to do something.


That is when I spotted a groupon for Allergies, Gillian invited to her workshop. My journey started with Gillian. My first kinesiology session, was dealing with the healing of emotional issues and imbalances, foods that was stressing the body. Gillian sent me to Elize for nutrient requirements and the best of all, alternatives to my chemical medication. After the second kinesiology healing session, I realised just how powerful the corrections for imbalances and releasing of stresses, to my astonishment, my body was ready to start the cleanse process.


I started the candida diet on 1st June. The diet was challenging and hard, paid off, within the first week, I stopped my daily antihistamine, to date have not had an asthma attack. Into the 2nd week I had major changes in my relationship. In the third week, in my work life lightened another shift came about for the better. Today my kids are in a better space coping better with life. After my fifth kinesiology session, with Gillian my lungs released like an elastic band coming off and I could start breathing with ease and very little pain, it was as if a whole weight was released of my chest.


3 months later I have lost 15 kg I have come down from 60mg of cortisone to 5mg alternate day, completely off my water pills. I am feeling alive a well and have a drive for life again. I can’t wait to get up in the morning and say hello to life every day. I still have a way to go off the balance of my medication. I am loving my healing journey, will continue with my process with Gillian.
In Thankfulness

Testimonial – healing from physical and emotional imbalance

Gateway to Wellness Programme

In February 2019, Sharon came to us feeling off balance, with shortness of breath, tiredness, blocked ears, tinnitus, and thrush including in her mouth and throat. She felt irritable and unable to face stressful situations.
Additional symptoms she suffered from included sinus and post nasal drip which caused phlegm on her chest which in turn lead to sever coughing at times. The tinnitus & blocked ear prevented her from hearing properly in a crowd and disturbed her sleep.”
“Having tried so many things in the past to alleviate symptoms I felt utterly defeated was heading towards depression. I have been virtually gluten free for over 30 years and lactose free for at least 10 they don’t seem to have been able to sort out the problems.
I have had health & allergy issues for most of my life and have been able to pick myself up and get on with Life.” Sharon has joined our 4 month “Heal your Life programme” in the hopes of feeling more alive and well.
As at 11 March:
“Completed a candida & colon cleanse – thrush has gone with sinus & postal nasal drip improving. I am very thankful for the progress made so far and am so pleased that I can once again enjoy fruit and natural foods that taste so good. It is amazing how much nicer food tastes now that the thrush and sinus are gone.”
As at 26 March:
“Having been on the diet & remedy to eliminate Epstein Barr, Ozone & Rife treatments and the Candida diet plan, I lost 5kg in 3 weeks and this was a bonus. There is a huge improvement to my sinus, post nasal drip & mucus on my chest. I am no longer taking any antihistamines nor using Foxair or asthma pump. I no longer suffer with acid reflux. I was living on Gaviscon & Lansoloc. There is very little oral thrush and I have changed my toothpaste to a herbal one. I have improved concentration levels and more energy.
Since following the new diet and ozone/rife therapy, I continue to feel more energetic and my sleep pattern has changed. I have been sleeping soundly for longer periods and not feeling so tired during the day as I was. If I do feel drained, I have an hour’s nap at the most during the afternoon.
I haven’t weighed myself recently but last time I did, I had lost another 2Kg = 7Kg in total. I have gone down a size with clothing.
The Tinnitus is not nearly as bad as it was, and my right ear pressure is not as uncomfortable as it was.I feel more comfortable in my skin and happier in myself.
I know that I am not alone with these challenges and there are plenty of people worse off than me. I hope my journey can help others.”
*Sharon still has 2 months left on the full 4 month protocol.
