Welcome and congratulations on making the choice to be healthy and happy!
You have found your way here because you are looking for something.
You may or may not know exactly what that is however you don't really have to know.
Very often the answers lie in what we do not know.
"My purpose is your inspiration and empowerment!"
Let me tell you a little bit about myself and explain why I am passionate about helping people feel good.
"I help people feel good.....its that simple"
"My passion is to hear you smile!"
My background is in conventional medicine, I trained as a General Nurse in Glasgow, and then as a Midwife.
I have been interested in all modalities of healing and the mind/body connection since I can remember and I always felt that there was more to helping people to heal than I had been trained to do.
My whole medical training was based on symptom relief, at no time in any of my training were we encouraged to look at the mind / body connection.
The whole medical establishment breaks everything down into areas, psychology deals with emotional issues, then you have medical problems which are symptoms of illness in the body and the use of drugs to relieve these symptoms, then there is surgery, well if it can be cut out then problem solved…no?
Medicine has evolved from looking at the person as a whole to specializing in the different body systems. We have specialists in cardiovascular, renal, neurological diseases etc. In my opinion this has made it even more challenging in treatment of disease. How can we heal someone if we only investigate and treat one area when we are whole?
As happens, I got sidetracked with my daily life. I married, had children, worked and I put all my energy into my family life (which I loved) and forgot that I had wanted at one time to pursue my interest in health therapies.
In 2004 I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia and for the next 6 years I spent my life in a painful, drugged haze. Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) is considered to be one of the most painful afflictions known to medicine.TN is a disorder of the trigeminal nerve.
Can you imagine suffering from a disease no one can see and which causes such excruciating pain that it has been nicknamed "the suicide disease", this was my life.
I was told everywhere I turned that this was an incurable disease and, at best, we could hope to control the pain however I would have to live with it for the rest of my life.
I underwent a range of scans, was prescribed various drugs, had injections into my face and had major surgery, Microvascular decompression (MVD), in which the neurosurgeon inserted Gortex between the compressing vessel and the nerve. The surgery gave about 7 weeks relief before the pain returned with a vengeance.
I spent many days in hospital as only intravenous drugs could help in any way to dull the pain.
In November 2007 my neurosurgeon told me that there was no other treatment that he could try, nothing seemed to be working, my only hope was to find some way of controlling the pain, and he referred me to another doctor, a neurologist, who would try further concoctions of drug therapy.
Being a stubborn Scot, I refused to accept this and started my search for a cure.
I had looked at and tried some complimentary therapies however I was still very much a conventional medicine kind of person, after all it was my training!
In January 2008, a few days after leaving hospital again, I was feeling particularly low and my husband had a meeting with a client who was also a friend of ours. He asked me to go along to get me out of the house and after a lot of cajoling I agreed.
Susan who had also come along that day as she was visiting the Island, said hesitatingly to me, “Linda, I know that this may sound a bit strange and please feel free to ignore me, however I have had some treatment from a man in the UK who is a Spiritual Healer and he has managed to help me. If you would like I will give you his contact details.”
Well I was at the stage where I was ready to try anything, by now I realized that as far as the doctors were concerned there was no cure for this condition. The thought that I was facing a life of drug therapy and hospitalization was more than I could bear. I made an appointment to see Ray Brown on the 5th March 2008 and that step changed my life, forever.
I am not sure what shifted that day, all I know is that I am so grateful that none of the conventional treatments helped to control this condition because, if they had, it may have taken me even longer to discover how miraculous and wonderful our body is.
This one step opened the door for me into the world of (w)holistic healing. I started to look into, and seriously study, different therapies.
My sessions with Ray were the start.
After seeing him the TN was controllable. I was still taking drugs although not as often and I was not being lifted from the floor, writhing in pain, and taken to hospital every week.
Three appointments with Ray, and two years of self-healing I finally became drug and pain free.
I have been healthy since.
For obvious reasons my long-dormant interest in complimentary therapies was reawakened.
I spent time studying with Ray Brown in Granada in 2009 and then went on to study and train in Naturopathy, Nutritional therapy, Hypnosis, Quantum healing, The Emotion Code, Breathwork, H´oponopono and Faster EFT.
I have learned that mind and body interact and mutually influence each other. It is not possible to make a change in one without the other being affected. When we think differently, our bodies change. When we act differently we change our thoughts and feelings.
"I believe that anything can be healed.
I believe this because I am living proof."
Inspired to use my knowledge and experience to help others I have developed the
Free Flo Living - Feeling on Purpose practice.
I invite you to join me and others in learning and using this approach to restore your natural equilibrium leading to optimal health and wellness.
" your body has its own innate intelligence for self-healing.
I can show you how to get out of the way and allow it. "
