I’d stopped playing tennis and swimming (couldn’t get from car to the
pool). I’d just quit a good job because my
brain no longer seemed responsive. To
grasp a concept I had to write it down 3-10 times. Sometimes words escaped
me. I was so fatigued that I’d come home
and fall asleep for 10 to 12 hours - with my clothes still on. During this time my legs didn’t “work”. When I could walk, my legs felt like stilts
with no flexibility. There was immense
radiating pain in the calves, shins, knees and ankles. Stairs were too much so I moved my bedroom to
the living room. Going to the grocery store was a nightmare. I had to calculate
my "high" time of the day, get in my car, estimate the amount of
steps to the store and try to get to the first aisle by the door. Sometimes I
could walk two aisles but never three as by then I’d be totally exhausted. I
had to plan one event at a time: food, putting gas in my car, going to the bank
or post office. Then: 10 hours of sleep.
My family was baffled and concerned.
had been helpful although sometimes I could only make it back to my car by gripping
walls and railings. The same happened
after massage or any relaxing treatment. It got so bad I had to weigh receiving
treatment with available energy, as I was constantly exhausted and staying in
meals? Too tired to stand at the sink, counter or stove. Forget doing dishes! I
couldn’t make my bed for six months. If I had energy to tear it apart I did not
have the energy to wash, dry and put clean sheets back on. My weight gain was
and still is substantial. Everyone thinks "Oh you should just try a little
exercise". Well, I would sit in my
car outside the indoor pool and cry because I knew if I had the energy to get into
the pool I knew I would have a hard time getting back to my car.
February, I witnessed a friend receiving QEST care for a painful foot. After
watching Judith effortlessly work I made an appointment immediately. (I checked with my friend the next day. She’d recovered just in time to fly to Bali
where she loved long walks on the beach.)
Still I wasn't very hopeful when I
went for my first QEST appointment in February 2. That day I even had
to gage how to get to the front door and into her office. How many steps? What if she works on me so hard I won't be
able to make it back to the car? Will I have enough energy to get home, to get
from the car to the house? How many steps to the bed? How many hours will I need
to sleep after this treatment?
asked detailed questions about my birth and any head or neck injuries going
back 40 years. I had forgotten or entirely discounted many things. WOW, come to
find out they seemed involved with my inability to walk and to think.
few QEST sessions, I was walking with very little pain. I had gone from a pain
scale of 10 to 2 and I was so happy! I still was walking somewhat stiffly (think
Herman Munster) but I began to live a little. Still no stairs but I had a
renewed sense of hope. By April 30th I
was pain-free and walking short distances. I even walked down the airport
concourse on a trip for the first time in 3 years. At night I no longer
clutched the wall to get to the bathroom. I still slept quite a bit but not as
much. No flights of stairs yet. In early May I left for a month of cross
country travel to visit family. I drove quite a bit, and stayed in flat-entranced
hotels. So glad to be able to do that.
return for QEST sessions. I want the stiffness
to do go away entirely and regain more ground that I feel is lost in my brain.
compassionate, knowledgeable and passionate about seeing your healing. I have never met a practitioner who loves to
get to the origin of the issue and address it so quickly. I am grateful to my
friend for dragging me there. I appreciate everything Judith is doing for me
and for our family. There are healers and then there are master healers, Judith
is all of that and more!
Thank you for letting me share my journey. This IS the
best thing I have ever done for my physical condition!
